    Joe,

    Tiger had a long life, we've know of no other 20 year old indoor outdoor kitty in mountain lion, coyote and bobcat country; and he was munching meat with the dogs and keeled over and went fast, like I sure hope I do!!  Sun is still leading the way although he needs to rest some now on the three mile loop.

    Thanks John I'm glad you enjoy it,  the guys on the AMG e63 wagon thread named me editor of a new magazine:   Dog and Performance  Car

    We just ordered the dog turbo for New Zealand -  Macan turbo with all the performance options, articles to follow  Sun picked Rhodium Silver with Beige leather to match his fur... well, part of his fur.

    Reminds me of a passage from Patrick O'Brian's Master and Commander:

    “The sailormen had plenty of time to depress their hearers, already low in their spirits because of the unnatural death of Henry Gouges (had said, 'Ha, ha, mates, I am fifty years old this day. Oh dear,' and had died sitting there, still holding his untasted grog)"


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    THANKS GUYS,

    I HOPE I DIE RIGHT AFTER I FINISH MY GROG. 

    SUN STARTED THE TRAIL TODAY... AND STOPPED.

    VERY WOBBLY IN THE BACK WOULD NOT GO ON..... I THINK THE PALE HORSE MIGHT..... 

    OH I LOVE HIM SO.

    three miles today, only a couple little pushes to get him up some steep spots.  We can still see the pale horse but he's a way further out at the moment

    while Sun rested I installed seat covers in the amg to go with the cargo area cover, since everyone here is so concerned with our interiors being up to snuff for the next issue of Dog and Performance Carindecision

    Do you have a dog ramp too?

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Is that your Ridgeback Joe?  very handsome!  We tried a ramp with Surf when he was ill, and Sandy, they didnt go for it, hence the amg wagon which is low enough that even Storm with his arthritis, and now Sun with age could/can easily get in and out.

    I did build steps up to our bed from a toolbox and Wiley's bass amplifier which Sun and Sky use most of the time now.  Age.

    No, it's not. Unfortunately I'm dog-less at this point, but I would consider a Ridge for sure. I'm Sun will love his new ride, congrats. Smiley

    in honour of the hot ripping santa anas and 100 + F temperatures we normally get in August, here are some stills from a video of my house in the 2 November, 1993 fire.  poor quality but you'll get the  emotion.

    Wiley's godfather Kieron who came uncalled to help, whilst his girlfriend Lisa helped Wendy get the baby [Wiley was 3 weeks old], the dogs and cats down the mountain, is on the garage roof as we get hit at 2.30 pm.  Flame hights 150 feet over the roof!!  Thanks Kieron, Thanks Lisa.Smiley

    I'm on the hose line that disappears through the doorway down on the deck

    1400283368943IMG_4995.jpg

     

    The video of the flag with the flames ripping over the house was standard on TV and politicians even used it to sell us fear.

    Our house was all cedar then with unboxed decks hanging off, a veritable firetrap.  Thank God I took my neighbour's advice and bought 2000 feet of double walled hose for my hydrant, becuase we were on our own.  The firemen and one woman in the doorway were CA Dept of Forestry smokejumpers who stayed ll night in our area, whilst the 12,000 regular fireman were pulled out at 1 pm, after several burned,  The one who came down on the deck [through the burning doorway and down 30 feet] where I was gave me courage and I will always thank these crazy, committed nuts with a death wish.  Later that night around 4 am we smoked their unfiltered camels in the smoke whilst I fed them.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Our house logo are Brass striking Rattlesnakes, there's 5 of them and I've always thought this captured Kieron's and my spirit, scared but refusing to lose, striking back. Keiron stayed all night and his rental burned down whilst he was saving my house with me, I replaced all his things but I will never have a finer friend.winkwink

    This one is on top of the post by the carpark where you always see my cars now...The actual car port  made it through 93 but burned in 07.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Whilst I was fighting the north side rollover, the fire spotted ahead and began to burn on the south slope below our house which is the trees on the far left....

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    The south side, the trees denote the house and the flat line at their base the deck, fire rolling through the saddle and unknown to me on the north side fighting.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Wow! That must have really been an experience. I've seen some of the footage from the SD area fires on the news. Hope you get some rain down there soon. 


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA
