Hawaiipetphotos.com intentded to resist comment on the latest reality TV noise (Remember, we have the latest and not-so-greatest playing in the background here at Casa Del Pet Photography). Then, last season’s Bachelor Jake Pavelka broke up with “fiancee,” Vienna.
OK…so, resistance was futile.
Putting Jake and Vienna on the proverbial back burner, the Iceland excursion by the current Bachelorette brought back funny memories. When my husband was stationed in North Carolina, he was assigned a mission flying from Keflavik in Iceland. I accompanied him. Two of our best days on the isalnd involved animals. We spent one day dog-sledding on the glacier. On another adventure, like Ali Fedotowsky and her boys, we went horseback riding on the lava fields. We wore the silly riding hats…just like ABC’s casts. We were freezing our rears off and we ended our day in the Blue Lagoon. That is where the similarities end.
Everything started off fine. The horses were reluctant to leave the barn on such a cold (February) morning. We headed out at a leisurely pace. The farther we moved from the paddock area, the more comfortable the horses appeared to be. My horse disguised her true intentions. When our guide was distracted and without warning, my horse bolted back toward the barn. Our guide pursued. I arrived, then the guide arrived, then my husband’s riderless horse.
“OMG (edited for modernism), where is Tim?”
“He’s in the lava field.”
“OMG, is he OK?”
“I don’t know, but he was laughing.”
Tim’s excuse: ”When we were in the middle of the lava field, I went down and left, and the horse went up and right. I landed on my butt.”
We went to the Blue Lagoon to warm our frozen joints and to heal an aching posterior.
JAKE AND VIENNA
Well..SURPRISE…they will not be going to the altar and eternal wedded bliss is not in their future.
From the drama of his return in the previous season’s “Bachelorette” to his appearance on this season’s “Dancing With The Stars,” Jake sends the signals that say, “I want to be a star!”
So, this Oahu Pet Photographer suggests that both Jake and Vienna get a pet. Something sweet that requires only the amount of attention that career reality stars can give.
As to “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” fellow Sunny Hills alum (Go Lancers!), Mike Fleiss must be extremely proud of the show’s success…which is fortunately measured in market share and not in successful marriages.
