TToFreeze -the Wakefield Doctrine-

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)

‘The sun blazing in futile effort to warm the earth, the sky a distant blue’ (landscape orientation) Along the bottom third of the photo is a road on the left and a snow-covered farm field on the right. The field is marked by a wire fence. The wire is invisible in the photo, the posts are not. They are stuck into the earth, forming a row running from the bottom to the middle, disappearing into the horizon as fences are so well disposed to do.



An almost wordless Post. (…for the moment).

This has been a Ten1 Things of Thankful Nearly-Complete post. Thanks to Josie Two-Shoes for keeping this thing going and to L. Lewis for the starting this thing back, like more than three years ago.

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one

    Summer is coming, but in the meantime, Una seems to be enjoying herself in the snow. I’ve been amazed at the lack of substantial, enduring snow so far this season here in Utah. We’ve had some, but mostly the ground has been bare.

      weather patterns are very different these days. our cold spell, don’t know the stats, but at least 2 weeks with daytime highs <20 degrees....
      Una is immune to the cold lol

    Great picture of a tired dog.
    It was nice to have a snow day during a short week.

  3. messymimi says:

    Happy pets are certainly high on the thankful list.

  4. 15andmeowing says:

    I am glad Una is enjoying the snow. I am not, I would if it wasn’t so darn cold and windy. Have a nice week!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      I enjoy watching her enjoy the snow… watching from inside the house! lol
      You too.

    Una has to have one of the best doggie lifes, ever. She’s just hamming it up all over the place! :D
    And this arctic freeze is just crazy, isn’t it? It’s down here, too. I haven’t been anywhere in days with layers of soft, fuzzy clothes on so that I can work. Hehe.
    Hope you had a great weekend!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      She does make living in the here and now look like fun!
      yeah… especially the snow, burying her face in it… she must sense how coldophobic* I am

      * not a ‘real’ word lol

    Things I see in your pictures to be thankful for…
    The warmth of fire
    Looking at the snow from inside
    A happy dog – and handsome by the way
    A gorgeous blue kettle sitting on the hob- just saying
    Beautiful blue sky, but didn’t quite see no 7 – the ocean although
    can still be thankful for it .
    Loved the car with the top down that you were following
    Thankful for that
    etc etc …
    We live by the sea .
    I particularly love walking by it when it’s very windy and the
    waves throw up a spray – did this the other day with my daughter

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      Una is quite attractive but not the most photogenic of dogs…at least for a cellphone photographer as I am… black-on-black (with a coupled of brown marks at the eyes)….
      I enjoyed remembering taking the video… it was August and it was warm enough for most people to wear just bathing suits… it is not that warm this weekend here.
      There is nothing that is not good about the ocean/sea as a place to be… always different, always impressive, always amazing.
      Thanks for stopping by the Doctrine!

    Una venturing out into the snow was so cute.
    I do have to say, that what I most enjoyed about your post this time was listening to Bill Anderson sing, and even more so the things he said about the “power of one” and the power of music. This is so true. How wonderful it would be if every person took the time to be “the one” for someone, especially when the person may feel very alone.
