Eyes On the Road, Pal…

This post is dedicated to readers Jay and Jane who both correctly identified that the heading picture of this blog changed recently.

For several years my Jack Russell Terrier has diligently guarded this page. All the while he sat behind the wheel of our old Town & Country staring at the road in front of him – in this case I-35 Southbound somewhere near Sherman, Texas. We were returning from a family trip to a friend’s cabin in Oklahoma and sitting in traffic. The pup couldn’t resist climbing into Daddy’s lap and placing his paws on the wheel.

When I snapped that picture I actually took a few in rapid succession to make sure I got a good one. The other day I came across the series in my Google Photos feed.

Since I am taking a slightly renewed direction with my posts I thought it wise to tweak the banner.

Now, the dog is staring out at you, not unlike my dear mom used to do when she’d cart us kids around town. I don’t know how she did it (and we never crashed) but I know it scared the hell out of Dad.

So, if you’re ready (and grateful for all that you’ve got), let’s hit the road together. Come on, it’ll be fun!

Besides, you know you’ve always wanted to be chauffeured by a tiny dog.
