Dad didn't call us last night. Mama said it must be too busy for us. :-( We know he was scheduled to go to a rodeo last night.
It has been so windy here. Yesterday, Mama said she was our anchor and we were hers and together we managed to stay on our feet during our walk. Scout and I thought it was like riding in the car with our heads hanging out. A man yelled out to us "I'M FROM KANSAS. I COULD HAVE STAYED HOME FOR THIS." BOL
Yesterday, we had comments on Scout's beauty. It doesn't bother me when people say Scout is beautiful. I hear it on a daily basis on our walks. Everyone thinks Scout is beautiful. They love her "stripes". I guess they don't notice my brindle face. Mama says I am cute and that is enough for me.
|Scout has taken some beautiful photos.|
|I am just a fun guy.|
|Sometimes we take fun photos together.|

The folks visited George Ranch Historical Park on Saturday. This is a place that follows four generations of the same family There are four houses. The workers are all dressed in period clothing. The first house was a log cabin that was built in 1830.
|Worker at the 1830 in cabin.|

|Family Cemetery near the 1890's home.|
|The kitchen of the 1930's house. It had a dishwasher, electric stove and huge refrigerator.|
|The chuck wagon.|
|This guy's horns are 6 feet across.|
There were alligators.
|This is the blacksmith. He gave a demonstration.|
Mama said it was a fun place to visit. She wanted to do it last year, but we were on the opposite side of town and it would have probably taken them 1.5 hours to get there. She said she always didn't want to visit when it was hot out, so she was glad she was able to visit in cooler weather.
Mama took over 130 photos. She took a lot of the interior of the homes, but I thought it would be boring to post them all here. Sorry, Mama.
The Greyhound Who Still Needs A Cowboy Hat
Monday, January 28, 2013
Mama has the car this week, so she has already been out running around. She went shopping in Missouri City which is ten miles away. She brought home hot wings, nacho fixings and yes, chips. She said it is a junk food feast this week.
The folks were really business this weekend. Dad was off on Friday. They made an offer on the motor home they like, but the guy turned them down. We will keep looking.
Saturday, the folks when to a ranch with real cowboys! We will tell you more about that later in the week.
Yesterday, we went on a hike! We went to the Houston Arboretum which is about ten miles from here. They have some really nice hiking trails. We liked them because they are only for walkers and not cyclist or joggers. The last place we went had a lot of joggers and cyclist and it was a pain getting out of their way the entire time. The arboretum was not very pretty, but we still had fun.
|I hear something.|
|I hear it, too!|
There is a whole other section of trails we didn't get to yesterday including a boardwalk over a swamp. We plan on going back soon and completing the rest of the trails.

|Scout doesn't look as upset as we expected her to be.|
|I let Mama put the hat on me like I was really wearing it. I look like a cool dude.|
The Greyhound Who Is Not Sure He Wants To Be A Model
Thursday, January 24, 2013
Well, Mama is at it again. She is crocheting a hat. Yes, a hat and yes, I am the model.
It was a very quick photo session because Mama didn't want me to take off with the hat since it is still in production. I was paid one Milk Bone for my modeling. Mama said I need to look a little happier to get better pay.
The Greyhound Who Hopes Mama Stops Crocheting Soon

Mama had hoped to see the greyhounds that were up for adoption, but she only saw one and he was in a locked office. She also thought they might have greyhound items to purchase, but there wasn't anything like that.
They sat outside to watch the races. If you sit inside, you can watch the dogs being weighed via TV screens before they come outside. Mama said there was one that reminded her of me because he wasn't paying attention and he was looking all around. Yep, that is me!
|The dogs being brought out.|
|And, they are off!|
On a happier note, the folks ate a fun place before they went to the track. They ate Armadillo Eggs! Check out Mama's blog to see her review.
