Famous Peak and Football

Hello Friends.

So how was your Saturday?  Mine was, well some would say uneventful.  At least for me.  It was indeed a beautiful day.

That there my friends is Ben Lomomd Peak.  It is right in my back yard practically.  Besides being so beautiful against the autumn sky it is all so famous.  Do you know why?  I bet each and everyone of you has seen it's likeness, and probably seen it many times. 
 
That's right it is the logo for Paramount Pictures.
The unique Paramount Pictures logo depicting a pyramidal mountain has been the main emblem of the company since its existence. The emblem is the oldest surviving and the most eminent Hollywood film logo in history. It is evident that the mountain is inspired by a sketch drawn by W.W. Hodkinson during a conference with Adolph Zukor. The pyramidal mountain in the logo is said to be a depiction of the memories of his early life in Utah. It is also said that the mountain drawn by Hodkinson is the Utah’s Ben Lomond Mountain.
 
Cool Drool huh?  Butt back to my Saturday.  Like I said it was a beautiful day.  Butt MOM had to do stuffs.  Stuff like, finishing a message for Sunday, laundry, cleaning, ironing (the pile was about as high as Ben Lomand Peak).  So I just kicked back, napped, patrolled the yard, supervised.  Then when late afternoon came MOM kicked back with me.
 
We watched a little football.
 
"Who's playing MOM?"
"Tennessee and Missouri."
"Those guys in orange are not doing so well."
"Yea, but that is who we are rooting for."

Then I got off the sofa to take a closer look. 
 
"Hey MOM do you think the orange team could use a real fast dog that can catch just about anything?"
"I am sure it could not hurt."

"How do I get in there?"
"Goosey, you can't.  You would have to fly to Missouri.  And by that time the game would be over."

"Looks like the game is over already."
"It's just the first quarter, there is hope."
 
{yawn}
"Yea OK, I am just going to take a little nap with Billy.  You wake me when the game is over."
 
"Is the game over?"
"Yes."
"Did the orange team win?"
"No."
"Next time book a flight.  I'll help them out."
"I'll get right on that."
 
Don't forget to get your information in to Jazzi for the Christmas Card Exchange.  Send her your info here: dcraftsalot@yahoo.comDeadline is November 9th.  Give her your name, blog, home address, and email. 
Blessings,
Goose

  4. Too bad you couldn't have jumped through that tv and helped that team out. Our mom was happy that her WVU Mountaineers won today so we didn't have to help them out.

  19. That is so cool about your mountain Goose... Momz and me watched some football last night...Miami vs FSU It went OK for the 1st half but by the end of the 3rd quarter Momz was throwing pillows at the tv...I told her Miami needs a tough terrier like me to put the bitey on those big dudes ankles...With you receiving and me on defense no team could beat us! Happy Sunday

  35. Oh, I wish you had gone to Missouri! Do you know why? Not only are Mags and I from Missouri, but we're right on the way there!!!! You could have stopped here at Ao4 Headquarters! Our mom could have cooked special "people only" food for your MOM and us pups could have played and played and played! Hmm. Of course, then you wouldn't have gotten there in time for the game ...
    Maybe you should forget the football and come here!
    Cammie!
