I’ve been busy reorganizing my collection of old prints this week, and of course I have a load of photos of our dogs. It’s been 10 years now since we lost Buster, Gabby, and Pinkie (they died within a few months of each other, and I blogged about Buster’s passing in April 2010).

I’ve never visited the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles although I’ve known about their existence for as long as I can remember!

Pan American’s Treasure Island terminal and lagoon became the home port […]
