Life Is All About Landmarks

Recommended Posts

We nouveau rubes rely on landmarks when giving directions. That's why it was particularly disturbing when the giant poodle disappeared from the side of the old National Road near Farmington, PA. After all, going "Past the Poodle" makes absolutely no sense if there is no poodle.

I am pleased to announce the Poodle (Bentley) has arisen from his winter hibernation and once again stands vigil.

Steve,

 

Now I know where the exclamation "dog gone!" came from!

 

But something tells me that Bentley may not be a very enduring landmark. He may be subject to the "winds of fate. " But I suppose he will be "all tied up" through the "dog days of summer!" :blink::lol:
