Walking on Alki, Pt. 3

In Seattle, the fall season, when the days are shorter, but the winter rains have not yet descended on the city, it can be a wonderful time to go for a walk.  There are plenty of beautiful sunsets, and scenic vistas to enjoy.

It was with these thoughts in mind that Dad and Mongo returned to Alki Beach.  Dad knew the good weather would not be around much longer, and with several business trips in the offing, neither would he.  So he had a special surprise treat planned for Mongo on this trip.

Total Chaos and Fur Underwear

It was rainy and cold outside.  Dad was getting ready to make a quick dash out to the store.

The trash was full, so Dad grabbed the bag from the bin and changed it out.  He turned and stood holding the trash bag while out the door at the sheets of rain pouring from the dark skies, and decided not to take the trash to the right then.  He’d take his chances that the weather would be better when he got back.  Dad left the bag by the back door and threw on his water-resistant climbing hoodie and bolted for the car.

How Did He Get that Open?

Dad came home from work and walked up the driveway.  There on the ground, right where Drewbie parks his Jeep Cherokee was a large oil spot.   Dad shook his head.  He told Drewbie to be extra careful if he was going to change oil in the driveway, but now there was a big oil spot.  Dad continued around the bins at the back of the house until he saw…

An Apple a Day…

Mongo has had his issues with apples.  Last fall he learned that it is not always safe to pick apples up from the ground, since one can never be sure if a mean-spirited critter, like a yellow jacket, has taken up residence in the apple, and might object to becoming part of Mongo’s snack.  But in the interest of continuing education…
