SPT: personal history: dad


i'm writing this tonight, instead of Tuesday because it seems apt to write this before going to see Willie Nelson at the Fillmore. my dad introduced me to Willie as a child. i have always enjoyed Willie and am excited to hear him and see his bright smile very soon!

this here is from the trip my family took to Lake Arrowhead to pick up Blitz, the second Schnauzer in our family history of Schnauzers. (it went Salt, a min. schnau., Blitz, a standard, Bjorn, a giant, Savannah, Reggie, Payton, and Rolf, all giants.) we usually had 2 dogs at a time. anyhow, this is in Lake Arrowhead, one of my first memories of snow. i think we did some sledding on this trip too. i like how crazy happy (which you can't really see in the scan) and tiny i look and the way the snow is flying down and how far away from the camera we are. also blitz was one of my favorite dogs (course i can pretty much say that about all of them...)

Aawwwww, Blitz!!! : ) You do look cute and crazy happy... you've always had a really great happy smile, when you're truly happy. I love Willie too! Funny, we've never really talked about our music tastes much...
