This is Fido (short for Fidelis) taking a nap.

These pictures do not do the scene justice, but they were taken last Saturday at Ming Lake Park in Bakersfield after my pipe band played for William Wallace Day. The colors were much better in real life--you could actually still see a faint green in most of the trees--and the sky was much, much bigger. The William Wallace festival was interesting, and not a bad idea, but the weather (several thousand degrees?) and the humidity (equivalent to the inside of a teapot) was not conducive to a large crowd. Then again, one couldn't complain about the heat too much; there was cold Guinness on tap!
