The Charlie Bravo Story

My Story Begins Here…

Dad here. On a cold, raw day in January, my son Zach and I were making a high speed pass through a rural area east of Little Rock when we spotted a dog crate partially hidden in the weeds beside the road. Something – or Someone – made us stop and check the crate. What we found was beyond horrible... A full sized dog reduced to a ragged, scabby skeleton, smelling so strongly of death…

The Pilgrim

Dad here; when Charlie and I first met, I knew from day one that we were destined to travel. Scratch that, because it's not entirely true; the truth of the matter is that we weren't sure that she was going to survive that first night. But when we could finally exhale a sigh of relief, the plan began to form: build a sidecar and travel the southwest. We had no idea why, because at that…

Toy Story

Toy Story Remember the premise of the first "Toy Story" movie? How Woody was used to being Andy's favorite, the along comes Buzz Lightyear? Years ago, I had an American Eskimo dog named Uki. The Ukester came along at a time before we had kids, and he was the original "Charlie", if you will . Every once in a while a dog comes along that fills a void that you didn't even know you had,…

Spoiled rotten

Charlie and I had a great time this morning, out and about meeting new family members and kindred spirits. Shortly after midday, Her Highness let me know, as only she is able, that she was ready to tie a knot in it, so I dropped her off at the Casa. As rain is moving in over the next few days, I decided to take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and loaded the Salsa bicycle…

Update

Fall decided to take a leaf of absence at the Casa del Whackos this year, and we have went straight from the humid hell of summer to the climate north of the wall. Winter is coming, you say? You know nothing, Jon Snow... Mom left the electric blanket turned on, a fact that the inmates were all to quick to discover and unwilling to give up any real estate to a weary stranger just looking…

Foster Fail Blues

People wonder when I take these pit bulls in, don't I worry that they may bite Haven't I seen in Time magazine, where all they're trained to do is fight Well, it's true they a dangerous breed They hog the bed, it just ain't right All I can do is the best I can do, and they let me sleep with them at night Chorus: All I can do is the best I can do,…

Dreamcatcher

When Charlie and I travel, we see the both the good and the not so good. New Mexico is one of our favorite states, if not our very favorite, especially the northern section around Taos, Chama, Cimarron, basically anywhere along Hwy 64. This is also an area populated by various Native American reservations, and these towns have not been treated kindly by the passage of time. Unemployment is high; if you don't have the good…

Let’s dance

It's a rainy Charlie Bravo Day at the Casa del Whackos, but as it has been a long, dry spell, having some rain is a good thing. I'm wadded up with dad in the recliner, and the other inmates are sprawled out on the remaining furniture like they were dropped from the sky. The only signs of life are the occasional leg kick and "WHUFF!" of a dreaming Claire, or the raspy snores of Titus…
