Half a century past.



While rumaging through cubords and draws searching for something , very much part of my present. I stumbled upon something very much part of my distant passed. How it found itself ther carefully placed down the side of a box of documents, I shall never know. Squirreled away possibly by me when I was a drinker. (3 years alcohol free in May “YEA” ) I was 13 years old when this pic was taken.My Dogs name was “Baron Von Norge” I have never forgotten him and never shall. I loved him and his passing effected me for a very long time. Dogs can cast very long shadows. Even at the tender age of 13 I possed a very powerfull love of Dogs.

One evening I was alone in the house, when I heard someone walking by. Then I heard the door handle being turned, I knew the door was locked. But this did not stop my hackles rising nor Barons. I rose and walked toward the door and opened it. Baron dashed passed me and began barking like mad at something or someone. When I looked, to my right, Baron had a policeman pinned to the wall. Hands in the air and with a look of shock on his face. (I shall never forget that picture lol )
I don’t recall what words were spoken, but I guess the policeman never tried my door again πŸ™‚ I was so proud of Baron. To this day I do not understand why a policeman should try the door handle of “my” house. One would often see the police trying the doors of shops etc. But never of domestic dwellings.

Just about where I am stood in the picture now excists a Starbucks !!!. “OH” how times change and how swiftly.


Below is a pic of a murial I painted ages ago. Some may have seen it before on W.L.S.

Just a thought..!!!


Is just around the corner. “YES”

    I know what you mean about dogs, you never forget them at all. I was given my first at 6 mos she lived until I was 16, have had a total of 12 dogs counting my current Kadybugs a Heeler/Border Collie mix the best dog I have had.
    Beautiful mural…you are very talented my friend xox


  2. Love the photo – I can’t say who is cuter – you (looks just like you!), your friend, or Baron. The mural is also amazing, although I can’t see it well. Is that a rocket blasting out of Mother Earth? I’d like to be able to see it better. Best – Monica
