Charleston Will Never Be The Same

The first sign of trouble was a Charleston tour guide on a horse-drawn carriage who lost the attention of his guests as we walked by. They were taking more photos of us than of some several hundred year old house the guide was talking about.

Why are all of those Charleston tourists staring at us?

Later, renovation work on a house totally stopped as all of the construction workers stared at us as we passed. Really, every bit of hammering stopped until we were out of sight.

Don't worry about the construction workers, Q, just enjoy the fountain.

A Charleston Police Officer who was providing security to some group of celebrities (whom Hu-Dad did not recognize) was more enamored with us than whoever the celebrities were. However, we did inspect the Craft Service food buffet outside of their wardrobe and make-up RV’s.

Scenery is great, but let's go back to that outdoor buffet.

Yes, we are quite proud of causing disruption every where we might venture – even in the middle of a tourist mecca like Historic Charleston.

Not sure we quite "blend" in Historic Charleston.

    Huskies are always head-turners and times six, better than an old building anytime. The real celebrities had four legs.

    I see TY is hogging the camera, how could you not love that mischievous face?? And of course all stops when the HERD walks by, is there any prettier sight, ever?? You need o make a trip down to St. Augustine Beach FL, or Flagler Beach, so very beautiful. I love St, Augustine, the flowers bloom year round, and the history is amazing. Then again I always wanted to see the Christmas Parade in Charleston – a friend was part of Newfoundland rescue, and Southeastern Newfoundland Rescue always walked that parade. No, the HERD would be more fun to watch in their Christmas Parade!!

    Kisha the beautiful did you give the police officer some tips on handling security? I mean who knows security like you….no one that’s who.

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
