Kickass on S, Padre

Kickass, the doorstop dog, and his keeper are departing today for S. Padre Island where Kickass will be marking territory on anything resembling a border fence, and the keeper will be floundering around in Laguna Bay tormenting pea-brained redfish and sea-trout in a vain effort to demonstrate that he is smarter than they are.  Once on a previous visit when the keeper took a photo of a companion standing next to a life-size cut-out of the President of the US on the American side of the Rio Grand, the border patrol descended on him and confiscated his film with the explanation that no photography is permitted in or around a Border Patrol facility.  When the keeper objected in his usual smartass manner, he was escorted to the facility commander’s office to discuss his less than respectful attitude toward the photo regulation and the Border Patrol in general.  He finally came to his senses amid the unsmiling border folks and said to himself that perhaps this was not the place or the time to take a big stand on a US-Mex. border issue.  So there went all the great photos he had taken of street life in Matamoros, Mex. There are no plans to replicate them.  (The keeper says we will be in touch.)
