Things seen while walking the dog….

Canoe on Chena River

  • Two women sitting outside their house on the step chatting. Just chatting.
  • What looked like a homeless guy with a reallllly long gray beard and hair, precipitously and teeterlingly riding a bicycle down the middle of a downtown street…A very *nice* and *expensive* looking bike. One should never judge a book by its cover. Fairbanks is such an unpredictable place, he might be the dean of a department at UAF!
  • The loudest and barkiest, as well as the smallest scottie schnauzer terrier I’ve ever seen – how can such a dominant 45 pound Aussie mix get so anxious at such a dog?
  • A LOVELY rainbow over the Chena River.
  • A little girl who was getting out of her parent’s car that called to me, “I like your puppy!”
  • A license plate frame on a car parked outside Big Daddy’s BBQ (one of my favorite restaurants) that at first I thought said, “nonbeliever”. Whoa, I thought, that’s pretty ballsy – Fairbanks is a pretty church-going town, and people rarely admit to being athiests. However, I don’t have a problem putting it right out there for everyone to see; it’s a free country, after all….Then I noticed the *top* of the frame had wording too, that I hadn’t noticed.

“Shun The”.

***SIGH**. 😦 Words fail me. Where to start? At least the rest of the walk was cool.

    Could it be that they are actually fans of Charlie the Unicorn?
