Sunbeam Interrupted

Dear Grandpa,

We love you. Thank you for a wotten-waven summer!

Mom calls this photo, "Sunbeam Interrupted." Please remember how I taught you to hold down sunbeams; it's hard, important work!

Matterhorn and Friends

By any measure, the Matterhorn is the most famous of all Swiss mountains. Nearby Monte Rosa is much higher, but it's the Matterhorn that made it to Disneyland and got painted on Swiss trains.

For years, Dachshund Daddy ignored Mom's standing request for a hiking trip to Zermatt, the Matterhorn's hometown...

until last weekend, when he went on his own so he could hike to the top of 11,200' Oberrothorn to take photos for his 2015 calendar "Matterhorn and Friends".

Unless you're good friends with the local police, which means you were in kindergarden together, you can't drive to Zermatt.

You need to park in the town down the valley and take the train or catch a cab/minibus/helicopter/golf cart. Dachshund Daddy left the Dogship farther down the valley and rode his bicycle up to Zermatt so he wouldn't have to pay for parking and transportation.

On his way to the top of Oberrothorn, which translates to "upper red horn", DD met a puppy mountaineer named Zippo.

It was a fabulous day, and he took many, many great photos for his new calendar.

He also made a whole bunch of new friends who wanted to spend more time with him.

 "Matterhorn and Friends" is already available from my Zazzle store if you would like to bring the Swiss Alps to your living room. Before you ask… yes, both Zippo and the sheep made it into the calendar.
