Chongqing Nightlights

A gate to watching the Chongqing nightlights.  Sure looks like a donut!
Chongqing originally spelt Chungking.   It is one of the four major cities in China, see introduction on

Albert took these photos of the city nightlights during his trip.  Some of the photos look the same but if you look closer you'll find the lights on structures change colors.    Enjoy.

Frieda is Still Pretty and Girly

It has been a while since Frieda appeared on our blog:
Frieda is the only girl in a litter of 5, one of her more well-know brother is Big Boy.    Now that all four boys are out of coat and cut down, guess what Frieda looks like today?

Frieda is well over a year old but she is still pretty and still in coat.   She achieved Grand Champion status a few months ago.

She is a clean and neat girl.

At over 1-1/4 years old, there's not one mat on her.

I Will Promise You A Rose Garden

Strikingly beautiful red roses in the rose garden.

There are pink roses, ...

...and pale pink ones too, ...

...the red ones and pink ones together give a great contrast of colors.

This is almost purplish pink, very unusual...

… these champagne color ones are beautiful.

The combination of pale pink and champion roses put together are absolutely gorgeous.

These roses remind us of the 1970s song "I Never Promise a Rose Garden" by Lynn Anderson:

Life may or may not be a rose garden but this garden is saying:

I will promise you a rose garden every year.

Bailong Sky Elevator

This is Albert's ticket to go on "Bailongtianti" during his trip to China.

This is a photo from the internet, "Bailongtianti" in word by word translation says Hundred Dragon Sky Elevator.   Construction of this elevator started in 1999 and completed in April 2002.   In May 2002, Guinness World of Records awarded it as the "Tallest Outdoor Elevator".   See:

To get to the top of the very tall mountains, tourists could walk the stairs, ...

… and view the beautiful scenery.

Beautiful mountain scenery.  

It's one of the most popular tourist attractions.

To get to the top of the mountain, by foot it'll take 5 hours while the Bailong Elevator can take you there in 60 seconds.

The sign says, "World's Number One Elevator".

As Pretty As A Flower

Here I am with my sister Fawnessa.

Me and my shy brother McBryde.

Mama Betty says that she'll give me a pretty name.

I am not only pretty, I am also a love bug.

Mama Betty says that I am the prettiest...

… she says I am as pretty as a flower.

So, my name is Flower Girl.

Do you agree with my mama that I am a pretty flower?

Flower Girl I am, I hope you agree that I am a pretty flower girl.
