Current Mood:
thankful thankful

Current Music:
sounds of Boo sleeping

Boo slumbers beneath the twinkly lights in the living room. Blue is to my left on the sofa… Canela sprawled a bit on the floor.

Canela’s got me worried. Both of us, really. She’s not as spry as she used to be – guess she’s not 11 anymore, eh?
She LOVES the thinly sliced deli meats, though. Almost lost a finger.

Boo and I did some marathon Scrubs session, then a Shark Week special on Tiger Sharks – Boo loves her some shark week!

She had a great time in NYC – never enough time on these trips it seems. She even headed outside on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building, which for those who know her, means a lot. She also did fine on the ferry trip to the Statue of Liberty – again, that means a lot. She took some great pics – I’ll have to figure out how to get her a snazzy cam so she feels enabled? compelled? to go shoot things; unlike my 1,000+ shots from my run to Upstate a few weeks ago (with a nice batch of good pics), she took just a few (150) – and nailed a good two dozen. Go Boo!!

I’ve added to my sig a reference to a British saying from WWII. Can’t recall if I’ve blogged on my idea that America can do better. “Do Better, America” is the slogan that comes to mind, nicely tied into a TLA – DBA! I read the news feed that someone wants me to see, and I feel my blood boil thinking how BushCo bends us over, to the exceptionally limited responses we have (hey – in just a little over a year, we’ll be able to ‘vote the rascals out!’ – but just how bad do you think it’s gonna get in the 18 months before change is sworn in?). I think the one that got me today was the new piece on a federal health study that the Surgeon General was unable to release due to politics.

Funny how I thought honorable men were leading out country. Sometimes I think my fantasy world would be a nice place to visit.

Ok. Enough of the down; here’s some up – I’m sitting here with my wife and my pups in our house – in our home. That makes me happy. It makes me thankful for all the twists and turns that I took to get here. It makes me look forward – not sure where we’ll go, but at least my eyes are on the horizon.

Pleasant dreams.
