Two Tuesday-- No Drunk Dogs

There's something about having these prohibitions together than really, really bothers me.

It's Twofer Tuesday again and that means I get to tell you all about this sign. My two sentences that I read are rendered above:

"Liquor and Nudity are Prohibited."

"Dogs are Prohibited Beyond this Point."

Now that we've established there's no getting the dog all likkered up at this British Columbia hot springs we can move on.

From my "A Fly on the Wall":

No picture. In fact, nothing at all. It’s blank.” Mrs. Ingetuckle looked puzzled.
“This happened once before to me. I got so excited. Thought I’d been rendered invisible.”
“We could ignore you and pretend you’re invisible if it’ll make you happy,” Mrs. Phlebos offered. “We love you that much.”

For more, or to find out how to participate, please see the Women of Mystery.

Hehehehehe - love the sign! Being drunk and naked with a dog in the hot springs is frowned upon in BC, I see.
And your sentences make me really, really look forward to reading the completed book! :)

dfBag Lady, we both got pics of that sign.
Thanks for your kindness toward my sentences.

No naked, drunken dogs? What fun is that??? :-)

the Bag Lady said...

Oh, I forgot - love your new header pic!

Leah J. Utas said...

I know, Missicat, I know. Plenty of spoilsports next door.

dfBag Lady, thanks.

Lovely header photo.

I like the $86.00 fine...what is that Canadian for $75.00 US? Such a strange amount.

You are going to let me read the book when it's finished, right?

Dogs are not good drunks.

Barbara Martin said...

It might be worth the fine to be a naked drunk with a dog in the pool.

Leah, the sentences you post about 'A Fly on the Wall' are such teasers. Now I'm itchin' to read the whole story.

Leah J. Utas said...

Reb, thanks. I am very proud of that particular pic.
It is a bizarre amount. I wonder if there's a Victim Services surcharge added on to the fine. Maybe even a PST!
Oh, yeah, you've already been recruited as a beta reader.

Lover of Life - you're so right.

Barbara- thanks for the laugh and thanks for the kind words about my words.

I can just see Mrs. Phlebos raising one eyebrow, a small smirk on her face, as she speaks. Like it.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you, Scott.
