Random Photos, Welcome New Followers, and Responding to Your Comments

This morning, I was working on my photo files, deciding what to keep and what to purge, I didn't think I would be posting anything here, but then I read all your comments to yesterday's post and in all fairness to Samson (it was his post, after all), I wanted to thank you and respond as well. Since I had looked at some of my old photos, I thought that sharing some random pictures as I write here could be fun.

First though, I want to welcome some new followers to Desert Canyon Living: Texan, whose great blog from Texas I have followed for some time now; Melodie, whose blog was mentioned on several blogs I follow (she has baby goats that are adorable); and Inger-M, who lives in Norway and who shares my first name. When I saw that, I knew I had to find out more about her. Please visit them all and say hello.

 Reflections - Mountain Spirit Center, California, October 2010

Starting from the top of the comments list: texwisgirl: Yes they are a sweet couple and Samson respects Angel very much. And she disciplines him and teaches him things. Polly,  Louise, and Kittie Howard: There is something to be said for  older females, be they human or animal. Wisdom and fun.

Marina del Rey, California, March 2009

farmgirl_dk and Barbee: Truth be told, it's really a bark/howl mix. He is very cute when he does this.

Subway Station - Stockholm, Sweden, June 2005

Nan, Jim, and Fiona: It's funny how they all enjoy the same doggie games. I'm glad you liked the pictures, Jim.

Mule Deer - California, July 2008

JP: Yes, dogs are so much fun!

Ruins - California, April 2010

Bobbi: I think Gracie is happy just living with you guys and it looks like she lets you know when she isn't (referring to the poop post).

Swedish Summer - June 2005

Tracy, Sharon, and Dawn: It is great when they entertain each other like that.

By California Hwy 58 - California, September 2010

Terry M Scott: I'm afraid our house has gone to the dogs a long time ago. And now with Samson and all that hair.....

Marina del Rey, California, March 2009

Melodie, Iowa Gardening Woman, Farmchick, Nancy and Inger-M: They are lucky and so am I that they get along so well and enjoy each other. Angel has a lot of patience with Samson's antics. Being a boy, of course, he has to sniff and he also loves to chew her already ratty looking tail. When she's had enough and lets out a little growl, Samson jumps back several feet and looks scared! I wish he would listen to me as well.

Who has the longest tongue? - California, April 2010

Allison: Guess what? We really don't have TV reception right now. And we have decided we don't miss it at all. We watch movies and let the dogs entertain us as well. Even the bird is entertaining when you pay attention to him.

Old Town, Stockholm, Sweden, June 2005

Liesl: I thought he looked really excited too and I'm glad if captured that in a picture.

Door Opening - California, April 2010

Changes in the Wind: I am so blessed that Angel found me and our home that day a long time ago now. Thank you for your kind comment.

Let me digest my dinner in peace, will you! - Rattlesnake, California, June 2008

Samson Says: Thank you all my nice friends for your comments.  


  1. OMG! Ending with that FAT rattler is fantastic!!! Yikes! Looks like someone lost a small dog or cat!

    Glad you went to investigate Inger-M! :)

  2. Inger, what a nice post and a great way to respond; very clever! I love the potpourri of various photos with the open door my favorite and the rattlesnake, I think I'll be skipping dinner! :)

  3. texwisgirl: Probably a small rabbit..I am so glad I visited Inger's blog. I know we will become friends.

    Tracy: Thank you. But I didn't mean for you to lose your appetite!

  4. That was a lovely sequence of pictures and I enjoyed it very much. Yes, even the fat rattler at the end. Though I'd rather not know what he is digesting. I know, I'll imagine it's a nice fat rat.

  5. Did you see my latest post? I have a new puppy. I just couldn't stand it that all my blogland friends had more dogs than me! LOL

  6. Louise: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I think I will post some random pictures when I can't think of anything else to post.

    Christine: Yes, I saw Rocky. He is adorable and you were smart to get a small dog. I don't know why these large breeds always end up here. My lap dog weighs 77 lbs.

  7. A lovely potpourri of photos, Inger. That rattler needs to go to Weight Watchers! And I've been on that street in Stockholm (oh, what a beautiful city it is!) Off to meet you friends. Enjoy your weekend!

  8. Love the photos, especially the one of the truck!

  9. What a great bunch of photos! My favorite is the old town in Stockholm! But then I like the door opening and the RATTLESNAKE as well. Yikes. Did you take that picture?? So sweet that you mentioned us, Inger. It's no wonder we love you so!!!

  10. love the two stone ruins and the Got Rocks truck

    and the snake

  11. Really a good post, Inger! I love the ruins and the mule deer! Great idea to post various pictures, something for everybody!

  12. Your photos are great and I loved Samson's post - it was one of those crazy days and I didn't get a chance to catch up until now.
    Thanks for stopping by and giving me some encouragement. I really appreciate it!

  13. i enjoyed the pictures you posted. i was really captured by the "swedish summer" photo. maybe living in the desert makes me crave green? beautiful! also, the rattlesnake photo was very good. nice shot. enjoying your blog as always!

  14. Love the old pickup truck photo..

    and, as for the snake.... we had a timber rattler bite one of our dogs about 3 years ago... what an expensive event that turned out to be... but our dog survived.


  15. That is one fat rattlesnake! I don't think you have to worry about that one chasing you down - he's way too fat.
    How fun that you responded to everyone's comments :-) Devotion!!

  16. Looks like the dogs are having a...who's got the longest tongue contest...or just plain tuckered out!

  17. Nice round-up of photos and comment questions, Inger. I should do that sometime.

  18. Love all the photos! The pic of the Stockholm street is my favorite:)

  19. What a great post Inger. Love how you responded to your questions this way. The pictures were so wonderful. Sweden is so pretty-I want to visit someday. I have to ask--what had the rattlesnake eaten or do you know? WOW!
    Amy :)

  20. Interesting, the text had no connection to the photos but somehow looking at the beautiful photos in sequence and reading your responses to comments was such an enjoyable experience. It was like getting a glimpse into how your mind works. For some strange reason, we don't know if we would have enjoyed the experience as much if anything had been done differently.

Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
