Glam Rock Climber

photo taken July 2009 • title thanks to Scott

Well, this week’s winning caption was as hard to decide as last week’s!  I even brought MC down to help me but then we couldn’t agree and it got even more confusing.  Scott, yours made me laugh when it first came in yesterday and I love the play on words and nod to Charlie’s eyeliner.  You got yourself a book!

The debate raged over:
Handsome Devil
Land Rover
You  ”aarrhh”… so busted!!!
Up Pup and Away We Go!
Quick Draw Coyote
Springing forward, while we Fall back.
“Hill Bent”
Bounding for Glory!
Get off my lawn!
No, really I need that basket little girl!
“Joy of the mountain.” This is coincidentally, also the literal translation of oregano!

• • • Is it possible to top last week’s contest?  I’m not sure, but I’ve got a personalized and never-been-seen-before prize for incentive.  Leave your title or caption for this photo in the comment section of this post and you’re automatically in the running for……drumroll…

a signed copy of The Daily Coyote which has just come out in paperback!  I must admit I’m having a bit of a difficult time staring at myself staring back at myself (the publisher decides on the book cover), but I like the paperback edition even more than the original!  It’s BEAUTIFULLY done ~ french flaps (swoon!), and all the full-color photographs that were in the hardbound edition.  A lovely and affordable holiday gift ($10.88 on amazon ~ click HERE!)

    That pic conveys such a sense of happiness to me, like Charlie just climbed a hill for some kind of reward but was still amazed that you gave him something so nice at the top.

    Over a year ago I first commented on looking into Charlie’s eyes. The cover of the paper-back is so reminiscent of what I saw then; two sets of eyes, one common heart, one kindred soul. God doesn’t make mistakes. His plan is perfect. Perfect for you and perfect for Charlie. One tame, one wild, One Destiny!

    The Happy Wanderer

    I love to go a-wandering,
    Along the mountain track,
    And as I go, I love to sing,
    My knapsack on my back.

    My knapsack on my back.

    I love to wander by the stream
    That dances in the sun,
    So joyously it calls to me,
    “Come! Join my happy song!”

    I wave my hat to all I meet,
    And they wave back to me,
    And blackbirds call so loud and sweet
    From ev’ry green wood tree.

    High overhead, the skylarks wing,
    They never rest at home
    But just like me, they love to sing,
    As o’er the world we roam.

    Oh, may I go a-wandering
    Until the day I die!
    Oh, may I always laugh and sing,
    Beneath God’s clear blue sky!

    If I were king of the fore-e-e-est
    Not queen, not duke, not prince
    My regal robes of the fore-e-e-est
    Would be satin, not cotton, not chintz
    I’d command each thing, whether fish or fowl
    With a r-r-ruff and a r-r-ruff, and a royal growl – R-R-Ruff!
    As I race through the fields
    All the trees would kneel
    And the mountains bow
    And Daisy kowtow
    And the sparrow would take wing
    If I, if I were ki-i-i-i-ng!
    The rabbits would show respect to me
    Chloe would genuflect to me
    Though my tail would lash
    I would show compash
    For every underling
    If I, if I were king
    Just ki-i-i-i-ing!

    Ely’s not around right now is he? He didn’t hear that did he?

    Okay, for this to make sense, you have to understand that Walter Payton (aka Sweetness), Hall of Fame running back for the Chicago Bears, would regularly run “The Hill” in suburban Chicago as part of his workout:

    …and that’s immediately what came to mind seeing this picture. The 10th anniversary of Payton’s death was yesterday, so maybe it’s just the timing.

    I love to roam out yonder
    Out where the coyotes wander
    Free up the mountain hiking
    I’m howling to my liking
    I’m howling to my liking.
    Give me my ranch and my Daisy
    Where Chloe runs full out crazy
    Give me my Shreve and D’s baby
    An elf leg to gnaw on maybe.
