My Border Collie is 3 1/2 years old. She is the most delightful, persistent, laugh-provoking, annoying, loyal, intelligent companion one could have. Gogo(aka Geaugeau) is my first experience with owning a dog--all my own, a house-dog. She dogs(pun intended) my heels, butt, hands every moment of the day. At night, she sleeps right next to my head. She wakes me in the morning by licking whichever arm is out of the cover. Then, she stands over me, pawing at me until I get up.
While I am thinking of a title for my blog, I'll go ahead and blog on. I want to think of an amazing, eye-catching, original title.
Right now I'm sitting at an RV Park at Gila Bend, Arizona, in the Sonoran Desert. This is one of my favorite places on earth; I've been here since December 10, 2008. My plans to leave on April 10, 2009, went ahead, and I went to the Painted Rock Petroglyphs to spend the next 10 days.
The ten days I stayed there were an amazing experience....

On our trip back to Florida we made a stop in the Smokey Mountains and then on to his dad’s place...
There are some things in this world I just don't understand. Why bottled water from a city tap sells for big bucks just because it's labeled 'mountain', why tiny trailers often cost more than large ones and why people choose to camp in a fancy parking lot for 40 dollars a night when you can camp for free with a view.
All things being equal, I'd prefer free water from the tap and a great view. Leave the asphalt campgrounds for others; I want to camp with a view.

Camping with no services used to mean no water, power or sewer but times are changing! Last week we spent a few days at Wallowa state park in Oregon and while there was power and some other services in the campground, there was no cell or aircard service. Imagine my astonishment - no internet! Getting connected involved driving about 12 miles and mooching off a local provider.
The state park was lovely and just barely opened for the season. While daytime temps were in the mid 60's,...
