Sorry for the short and unannounced hiatus - I just didn't feel like blogging this week and didn't have anything particularly remarkable to write about. I THOUGHT I was going to have agility video from Tuesday's class to share, but alas, my camera was dead. It was a very good class, though. Maybe next week?
Anyway, speaking of cameras, Louie was over yesterday. He brought with him a fancy shmancy big Canon camera that his dad has access to through his work. The weather was abysmally humid (and still is), so our plans to hike were thwarted. He did shoot some shots of Marge catching some serious air playing with me in the yard.
The mention of "air" brings me to my next subject. Since hiking sounded like a stupid idea with such oppressive heat and the chance of thunderstorms, we took Marge out of the equation and did something else together.
Louie is a big fan of aviation. He knows things that I am sure even some pilots don't know about planes. He studies it the way I study dog training.
Anyway, enthusiasts often head to known locations near airports where they can "spot" planes taking off or landing. Louie and I have gone once before and I very much enjoyed it, so we headed back today, fancy shmancy Canon camera in hand.
Though it still remains to be seen if I'll ever get on a plane again in my life (I have an unexplained phobia of flying), I do like learning which plane's which and I've gotten decent at it, too, for someone who only does it every once in a while. I'll spare you all of that, and just show you some pictures that both of us snapped while we were there. See how close we can get? (P.S. - these aren't on my Photobucket - Louie uploaded them elsewhere and I didn't feel like transferring them over since the files are so large.)
Later on in the day, Marge DID get to go for a walk, but I'll save that for next time. :)
