"The Long and Winding Road" was written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. When issued as a single in May 1970, a month after the Beatles' break-up, it became the group's 20th and last number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States.[2] It was the final single released by the quartet.

In 2011, Rolling Stone ranked "The Long and Winding Road" at number 90 on their list of 100 greatest Beatles songs.

Lola says "Come on lad, give a girl a kiss."  Lola is of distinguished descent from a long line of pedigreed bouvier des flandres champions.  I do however draw the line when it comes to smooching bearded females who have been known to drink out of the toilet! 


C'mon lad, give a girl a kiss!

One of my favorite critters is the American Pika.  They are not especially easy to find because they live in alpine talus fields above the treeline.  I've only seen or heard them on higher altitude mountain hikes.  Usually you hear them first (they make a loud "eep" call).  They are speedy so even if you hear one, it isn't always easy to get its picture.

Believe it or not, all of these pictures were taken with an old, small (but decent quality) pocket sized camera I carry on long hikes.  First two pictures were taken at Grand Teton National Park, WY on the Cascade Canyon Trail in 2010.  The pika popped out less than 10 feet away from me.  I had stopped and was taking pictures of the mountains so I had my camera ready.  The third picture was taken at about 50 feet on the Stanley Glacier Trail in Kooteney National Park, AB on Aug 25, 2018.
