I've found that I practically need to wear the camera 12/7 to capture fantastic pics. Once you miss an awesome photo op, it's gone forever. I need a camera like a miner's light; stuck to my forehead!
Sometimes I wish I could put a pet cam on Harley to see what he sees at his diminutive height. I think all he sees when it comes to people, is their shoes and shins. He loves people and wants to see their faces or plant a kiss on them or both. I've tried to discourage him from jumping on folks, something a puppy loves to do. He will often try to greet a person by standing on 2 legs with his front paws almost reaching their thigh. While this is cute, it's not cool.
Now when he has the urge to greet people by touching them with his front paws, I often just snatch him up, holding him upright in my arm, so that his eyesight is about level with ours. This enables him to see the faces of the folks he wants to flirt and lavish his love upon.

He is wearing his new birthday coat.
We came back from a walk.
When I tried to remove his coat, he ran for his pillow mountain, so I left it on him.
I thought by moving to America I was forever escaping frequent random power outages. But here in the middle of nowhere, we have power hiccups. For some strange reason, a power hiccup can shut down my heater. This happened recently while I was sleeping. Outside temps were plummeting to the very low 40's. My particular motorhome was built for occasional vacationing, not for year round living. Just the same, I am living in it year round. It is insulated, but not very well. So it loses heat quickly. I woke up shivering, cold and having health problems that plague me when I am plunged into cold. I discovered the heater was on but off. Kind of like my brain... on but off...
So far our power hiccups have not exceeded 5 minutes, but it reminds me how wonderful that I am mostly self sufficient and prepared for longer power outages. But I wasn't prepared for a safety heater that doesn't come back on after a brief outage.
Now I have the propane furnace set up to come on as a backup. But I forgot to top up the propane when I was in Melbourne. It's always something!
Finally! Harley poses in his new winter doggy coat! This was his birthday gift. He was very cold so he has a sweater on underneath. He also has his collar turned up. He thinks it makes him look cool.
