I see the strangest things on my trails sometimes, but today I found people doing strange things. Usually the people I see are busy walking on the trail, but these people weren’t. I’m not sure what they were doing, but I guess my person wanted to know too so we went over to investigate.
Sorry person, you cannot share my Detective Dog hat with me. That’s for me alone, even if you do help me with the investigation.
We wandered off the trail and went over to where these people were, and we found a bunch of guys mixing colors with long things and then wiping the long things onto some square things.
It didn’t make any sense to me but my person talked to them and found out the guys were part of the Sedona Plein Air Festival.
I’m not sure what that festival is, but I always thought we had pretty nice air here. I didn’t know it was plain. And why would people want to have a festival for plain air anyway?
We hung around for awhile and my person talked to the guys and looked at their square things with the color on them. I’m not sure what she was looking at. I think they had used up all their rags and those square things were all they had left to wipe stuff off on.
But then something happened and I decided that having a festival for our plain air wasn’t so bad after all.
Because I made a new friend.
