Rugby The Place

Rugby the PlaceThis road is only three miles away from our house! Can you believe it?

We were out running errands when we saw the sign and had to stop and take a picture. I pulled over on the side of the little road so my car was right beneath the sign. To get Rugby closer to the Rugby Rd sign, I put him on the roof. You can imagine the strange looks we were getting.

One guy pulled around the corner, parked his car and watched disapprovingly at what we were doing. I came up with several scenarios to explain his reaction.

1) He thought my car broke down. That is possible. I am guaranteed to drive over any and every nail my car encounters.

2) He thought I was photographing the house we were parked by so I could plan a robbery for late tonight. Rugby has friends in low places.

3) He was upset that Diesel didn't get a chance to see the neighborhood from on top of a car.

4) Wild, rabid Maltese dogs are running rampant through the streets of Pasadena, and he wanted to make sure I could handle the one that had climbed onto the roof of my car.

I guess I will never know what his deal was. I do think it is time to move, at least three miles down the road. Wouldn't it be nice to live on Rugby Rd?


  1. That's a really cute shot!

    It's possible the guy was afraid you were one of those lunatics who'd try some stupid stunt with your dog on top of your car and he was waiting to intervene or call the police. At least, that's what the part of me who chooses to believe the best of people wants to think!

  2. Wow Rugby has a whole road named after him! He surely is famous! The picture is great.

  3. too funny. Maybe he thought you would try to drive with your dog on the roof!

  4. I just remembered that is where the post office for Rivera Beach is

  5. That is too cute. I think option 2) is the most amusing, though none of them are very probable. Maybe he's just a grouch without a life, whose got nothing better to do, then to glare at Rugbys' on cars. Or maybe he's just jealous that he doesn't have a street named after him, and Rugby does lol. I just googlemapped and found a "Ginger Circle" a few minutes from our house. I'll have to go take Ginger to her street of fame too.

  6. Another brilliant photo. Rugby looks proud of his street. :)

  7. I've taken to naming pets after interesting street names. Clearly the coolest pet names are also street names.
