Benji’s Lost Lagoon Refrain

All photos taken on May 12, 2022.

Hey folks. Benji, the Wonder Dog here, but you can call me Benji, the Wonder Dog.

After the January Lost Lagoon fiasco, where my Gran Hoomins tried to steer me, this time I am going to steer this boat to the places where I want to go. My Hoomin B is often more accommodating than my Gran Hoomins.

I stand firm in my intentions

My first order of business was to see what is shaking down at the Great Blue Heron nesting site. I need to say Hi to my buddies from last year and their little ones. Holy Blue Heron, those little ones, Blue Hair On and Blue Hair Off are now big ones.

Then, it is over to see the Wood Ducks…Wood He? or Won’t He?. What do you mean, get outta here and what’s “you’re a third wheel” mean? I could be your wing, er bark man. Ohhhh, you don’t need any help! I get it now.

Hey! I wanna go over here.
Hmmm, where are Mallard and Milady? They used to hang around here. Perhaps, they ducked out.
They are not over there either.
And not swimming under the bridge….they must be setting up nest too.

Ahhh, Mr. and Mrs. Goose have such a cute family already. I can’t wait until those little ones are big enough to play tag with me.

What do you mean, its time to go home? I’m the leader of the pack here. I’ll let you know when its time to go.
Looks like we are heading back. If I take the lead again, I’ll get to the kibble sooner.
How’s a dog supposed to sniff a tree with that gizmo on it? Harrumph.
All my friends have cleared out to avoid the showers.
Uh Oh. Now it’s really raining. Good thing I have my waterproof superhero cape on.

Not a bad walk. I think I controlled the route pretty well. What do you think?

Time to relax now. Benji Out!

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Benji, you sure know the interesting spots. Thanks for sharing the sights with us (especially the heron photos). Yes, you have to make sure you have control over the humans every second; they do seem to foul things up on a regular basis!

    1. Arfs a lot Lynette. Every once in a while, I just gotta put my paw down and lead my hoomins where I wanna go. I think they got the message on this trip, but they may need a refresher course from time to time. I think my fowl friends did not want to play with me because the 2 leggers were around. Woofs to you for reading. Benji 🐾🐾

    1. I, Benji only keep hoomins around for the food and treats….and perhaps the odd tummy rub. They are useful for some things. Thanks for reading John. Benji 🐾🐾


  2. Well done on taking the hoomins out on a walk, you must walk your hoomins often or they might get sad and grumpy, which leads to less treats and belly rubs! You are clearly an amazing leader! And you know that we’re all here for you, right? 😉

    1. Woofly to hear from you Jay. For sure, hoomins get cranky when they are not exercised frequently. As the walk went on, I could see them getting happier and happier, although they never got to the stop and sniff the trees stage. Maybe next time. arf Wiedersehen. Benji. 🐾🐾
