Just got back from downtown SA taking Spock on his first visit to "downtown" as a dry run for next week. Me and several other local Delta Pet Partner SA therapy dog teams are participating in mock evaluations for the National Pet Partners Conference being held here in San Antonio next weekend.

https://petpartners.org/act/pet-part...nference-2019/

Since Spock has never been to "the city" I wanted to make a practice run downtown to the Marriott RiverCenter hotel where Pet Partners conference is being held. Spock did great on the practice run and we experienced a plethora of new things to him including:

1. First big city visit & crossing at crosswalk intersections
2. First time in a parking garage
3. First time in an elevator
4. First time seeing electric scooters go past
5. First time interacting with lots of families and tourists walking by on sidewalk.
6. First time seeing Fire Truck & Ambulance up close with sirens wailing.
7. First time seeing vagrants walk by (just a couple and he remained calm, which was my biggest concern prior to trip)

Spocksdad & Spock at Marriott RiverCenter Hotel




He did great with the tourists, many admiring him while we sat in shade on sidewalk. He was more interested in a colony of tiny ants working to gather up food particles on sidewalk!




"Let Me Look At Those Neat Ants, Dad!"




Wouldn't you know, as were finishing up our visit, a large fire truck and ambulance, sirens wailing, came down street and pulled into Marriott's drive thru, while my daughter was taking our picture! I'm surprised Spock remained calm and didn't start howling, like he does with pack at home.

Next week for the event, the therapy teams will have free valet parking so things will be easier. Surprisingly, this Marriott hotel has a No Pets policy, whereas the Grand Hyatt across the street at convention center, where my daughter works, is pet friendly... So, the No Pets hotel is hosting Pet Partners convention....go figure?

Spock rode up the elevator with myself and my daughter and he did okay. I think Eva in same situation would be slightly different.

Great job Spock and SD!

When we lived in Arkansas - My wife and I travelled down to SA for a week. Visited: Alamo (of course), a very nice art district - la villita, canal, Sea World and many other places....food was very good as well!

We thought the city then was pretty nice for a city

Well, dadgumit--I managed to avoid caves, abandoned mines and mothballed missile silo's when Nixon was President although I did get my passport renewed kept my boat equipped for long distance travel on short notice.

But I was thinking of looking into missile silo's again when I got to thinking about the possibility of Trump actually getting elected for a second term.

One of my hotshot computer guru's started looking into cheap fast internet service--I'll let you know how that pans out. He may actually find something since I'm taking care of his elderly bitch who has an advanced heart condition when he is working out of town--and I'm doing it free in exchange for him updating and upgrading my archaic computer gear to something that isn't 10 years or more old. I let ya'll know how that works out.

Weather--speaking of weather--I said yesterday that we are having very fall like weather here in the left hand Portland. Yesterday was dry but sticky feeling--high humidity for us and it had rained the day before.

So the forecast last night was for low temperatures and predicted possibility of rain for every day for a week out. I got up this morning at 6:30am (having overslept by a 1/2 hour) to rain--and from then to when I left the clinic to come home at 1:30pm it rained harder and harder-finally stopped abut five minutes ago (3:30pm--RATS--I forgot to take my 2:00pm handful of pills--that's all folks--now I'm going to take the pills and a nap...)

ABTLH

PS The high today is suppose to be 62 degrees--normal average high's in September are usually mid 70's occasionally rising in a few days of 80 degrees.

Charcoal or pencil? Just use a softer lead. (4B or 8B)

I don't normally draw with such heavy dark lines myself. In fact, I try not to have lines at all, but just let the dark or lighter area behind something define the shape.

I just tried to find a pic to show you what I mean and couldn't--but I did find this long-forgotten scribble of the dogs "helping" me exercise that I thought someone here might identify with



I like the grin on Kip's face--I know it is him because Capri was the face licker.

Next step would be to install a higher gain HDTV antenna on roof such as RCA one previously linked.

If that doesn't work, an amplified high gain HDTV antenna such as this one could be used (has VHF dipole to pickup SD analog channels in addition to HD UHF channel dipole elements)

https://amazon.com/AirDiff-Outodor-A...dp/B07N7YHDC7/

Keep in mind, amplified antennas can't be used with the other active splitter/boosters, as linked above.
Maybe next time you're at coffee shop or TS, ask around what setup others in Guthrie are using for HDTV antennas, or is everyone using satellite?

Yagi Antenna Wind Tip- Back in my early seafaring career, along the US Gulf-East coast tanker trade, we used to mount large high gain VHF/UHF antennas on flying bridge so officers and crew could watch TV up and down coast in lounges. Each antenna was mounted on a heavy duty Ham antenna rotator. To keep the elements from getting torn apart from the constant wind and occasional storms, we would string the elements together with 200lb. test fishing line, knot off, then epoxy the knots. This would strengthen antenna into homogeneous unit without affecting signal reception. This is less important with the UHF yagi style antennas with short elements, more resistant to wind damage. Something to consider in tornado alley?
No! One TV hooked to the antenna on the roof!

Whatever that means.

On a side note, my truck has two eyeballs now!

On another side note, Franks's chicken still keeps getting lost in the forbidden zone.

And, EMSA pulled into my driveway this evening.

Had to tell them, "Over there!"

Who says Guthrie is boring?

I invited Mister to watch and he said no. He doesn't like red trucks.

Sorry, Beau!

And, he hates Rams, too!

Sorry Best Brother Butt Head.

He is Chevy and so am I.

I don't know how this relationship can possibly last.

An information piece - a lot of creative chicken hawks, among us...
https://www.shutterstock.com/blog/3-...WaysUsingWater

3 way using water, can make your boring shots look better.

Though you may not realize it, water is a popular tool among cinematographers. Here’s how you can use it to make your film more visually interesting while on a budget.
When you’re making a movie, you need to take every possible opportunity to spice up your image (as long as it fits your story). There are many ways you can do this, from interesting lighting and set design to interesting lenses or color correction. And some visual upgrades are a little more expensive than others.

A somewhat unexpected resource is a very simple one: water. If you start to pay more attention, you’ll notice an abundance of water in movies and videos, sometimes irrespective of the need for weather effects. Water gets used very often in many different ways.

In the following video, Ted Sim from Indy Mogul shows us how to use water to add contrast and atmosphere to our scenes without blowing the budget......................

I explained what had happened, but I kept coming around the corner in the hallway and surprising a bunch of people whispering, who gave me sidelong glances and immediately shut up. And when I went up to draw blood on the floors, the patients looked at me compassionately without saying anything. I felt like I could tell what they were thinking...and it didn't involve a dobe bounce.

Capri broke one of my front teeth. I was smiling at her; she was smiling back. She did a bounce (What is it about dobe bounces? They don't plant their feet on you, but they get up to your face level effortlessly!) and bopped me in the mouth with her nose/smile. Apparently dobe teeth are harder than people teeth.

I do not recall where or who may have told us - but we needed to watch when looking over Dobermans head when we first got Molly and O.D. They definitely can pop up quick and their skulls are very hard. So I have been mindful of that all these years. I have been at times not fast enough and get a hard bump on the chin but not lose a tooth! Ouch.

Mila is a definite bouncer and loves to play so I have to be extra careful - not as quick as I used to be!!

I just tried to find a pic to show you what I mean and couldn't--but I did find this long-forgotten scribble of the dogs "helping" me exercise that I thought someone here might identify with



I like the grin on Kip's face--I know it is him because Capri was the face licker.
Typically pencil - I do have all the hardness levels but guess I get afraid to go to dark and then have to back off.

Good sketch to capture the moment! Same thing happens with us with all our dogs - get on the floor to do some stretching and exercise and that really means time to play with me mom or dad!

Guess time to try and draw again - always goes in phases...
