Who Knew I Could ArrOOO?

On just about any given day you’ll find a flag flying at our house. Except during a hurricane, which, hard to believe, sometimes happens. Even though we’re a good two hours inland.

Stuart hated it when the Dad Peep was up on the ladder changing the flags. He’d bark. He’d ArrOOOO. And just complain about it. ArrOOOOO! ROOOOOO!

Maybe he didn’t like that the ladder occupied “his” space on the top step. Maybe he was worried the peep would fall. Who knows.

It was time to change the flag over the weekend. I decided to ArrOOOO at the Dad Peep. I was pretty good at it, too. He looked at me in amazement, then laughed. Then we both laughed.

We’re laughing these days instead of crying all the time. Though we still do that, too. A constant source of amazement and amusement, Stuart would wish us happiness I think. Sadness all the time is just too draining. And unfair to the memories.

I think I’ll keep on ArroOOOO’ing. And I think you should try it, too.

If you’re just joining us, it’s a Scottie thing.

Summer Assignments: Rufus

Yes, Scottie Scholars, your summer break is almost over and each of you is to be commended for studying hard while class is in recess.

Meet Rufus:


Rufus is fierce, as are his furry neighbor pals. Between them, no squirrel dare venture near their kingdom. However, Rufus, being the ever vigilant Scottish Terrier, and Scottie Scholar in search of some extra credit over the summer, decided he’d disturb a few moles and voles by digging his way through the earth.

Looks like he’ll soon be halfway there.

Good job Rufus. Move to the head of the class!

If YOU’VE been doing your Scottie Scholar Summer Assignments, send the Teacher a photo of your work: StuartTheScottieAThotmail.com.

Class resumes after the U.S. Labor Day Howliday.

Watercolor Wednesday – Beach Bum

Just in case you’re just joining us, welcome. First things first: Wednesday is StuART day. Time for a bit of Scottie art to brighten up your week.

Today’s a happy memory of strolling along the beach with Stu. Something new. (The StuART, not the strolling along the beach.)


For those of who I’ve promised StuART, I haven’t forgotten you. Patience is a virtue. (With me, that’d get you into Heaven on the express elevator….)
