How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?



A couple of years ago while Pat and I were visiting West Hollywood California, we walked by this window of dogs.  This scene reminded me of the Fifties Hit Parade song "How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?"  

Remember back to those innocent times of the Fifties?  I used to think I was living in such a boring time.  Hey, guess what?  I would love to have those "boring" times back again, albeit with all my digital devices.

I found this video while organized my 92,260 photos and videos on my iMac. Can you believe I have these many images on my computer?  Can you imagine how many I would have if I was taking photos and videos since the Fifties?

Aw, c'mon Ron!

Half of the fun of living back in 'olden days' is that we had to figure out stuff ourselves, with out the Internet...we had to go to the library...we got to figure out sex with real people, instead of with porn videos (which apparently causes problems with some of today's young folks.)

I don't think I would like to be young in today's world!

I like the Doggie Daycare video, except for that one dog who seemed to be getting over-enthusiastic (with the barking). And I do remember the song "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?".

WOW!! I couldn't imagine having over 92,000 photos and videos on a computer. I have about 45 videos and it already seems crowded.

I got you email this morning. I absolutely couldn't stand Outlook. I feel more comfortable with AOL (I've had AOL email for about 15 years).

I too well recall that song from the time it was a hit, Ron. Not sure I'd like to have those 1950s back again, though - well, maybe only the best bits.
And I hope all those adorable doggies in the window are well trained, or it's going to be a smelly nightmare to clean up the place every time opening hours are over.

I like the clip. You guys seem so enthusiastic about everything you stumble upon - like two kids. I need to open my eyes and see the wonder about what's around me more, I guess. You've inspired me.

Harry,
You have hit upon why Pat and I are such good friends. We can just be ourselves with each other without fear of judgement. And yes, at times we do act like two kids. Pat and I often kid each other that when we go on our trips and adventures, the things we do many others would probably be considered boring and beneath the dignity of two senior citizens. Pat is that friend that I always wanted my whole life but never seem to have even though I have had and continue to have friends. But they have all had conditions that prevented me from being totally myself. With Pat I can be totally myself as he can be with me. We are both totally comfortable with each other which is a rarity in life, at least I have found it to be a rarity. I waited a long time to have a friend like Pat and believe me it was worth it. We're going on our fifth year now. In a couple of weeks I'll be visiting Pat in Canada and we'll be doing "nothing" again and having a good time at it.

My mind swoons at your cache of movies, posts, and photos.
I think you should hire a secretary to get it all organized so it does not come lost.

Ron, as I said before, it was fate. You were suppose to meet Pat and vice-versa. You are so lucky.

Ron said...

Linda,
We both know it. Maybe Pat wasn't expecting to meet me but I always knew I would meet him. Took a long time but it did happen and for that I am so thankful.

Dr. Spo,
I just paid over $500 to have my old VHS tapes (all 43 of them) transferred to a digital format. I will eventually post all those videos to my You Tube account for friends and family to enjoy long after I'm gone. This, in addition to updating my end of life documents was one of my last big projects. Oh yes, I wanted to do an autobiography but I don't know if I'll have enough time left. I'll try though.
