Short Take: Best Image of 2010, So Far!

While watching the Rose parade this morning, I caught the float featuring the bulldogs sliding down the ramp on snowboards.  After all the philosophising, and recounting the past year, and pondering the seriousness of the future, this innocently absurd image made me laugh happily.  When confronted by a bulldog on a snowboard, is it really possible to brood?  This will probably remain one of my favorite images of the fledgling year....I might even lighten up a bit...join the masses and see "Avatar".....


  1. Very nice blog!
    Wishing you the very best in the new decade!

  2. Stephen,
    Welcome! Thank you for visiting, and for your kind words.
    I hope you will visit more often. I'll check out your site as well.

  3. I'm of the opinion that a dog in any silly or bizarre activity can distract our attention from a lot of tragedy and strife. That would probably go double for beagles and bassets! Nice post!

  4. Tom...Yes, a bassett hound just sitting there, looking at you, can make you feel goofily happy. Thanks for you comment!
