A Summer Song

Sunday, August 14, 2011      2 comments

It's time for school to start again - big "back to school" sales at the stores, kids out frantically getting the last days of freedom playing on the sidewalks ... I don't have kids (all of mine have fur), but I feel for those who are not excite... Read more

Ever Have One of Those Days?

I Love My Dog

Saturday, August 13, 2011      11 comments

My neighbor found a little (5 pounds) chihuahua on her porch yesterday. He had a collar, no tags. Since she's elderly, I told her I'd take him around to the neighbors to see if I could find his owners. One problem - at midday, there are very few... Read more

Ode to Billy Joe

Thursday, August 11, 2011      5 comments

It's not too often that a song really, really tells a story. Bobby Gentry amazed and amused us in 1967. Truth or fiction - and just what was it they threw off the Tallahatchie Bridge? It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta da... Read more

Brick House

Tuesday, August 09, 2011      2 comments

I've been hearing this on my MP3/radio every day while I'm out walking the pups - I know the lyrics are sexist, but I have to admit I boogie along while I'm listening to this song. The Commodores in 1977 [Chorus:] She's a brick ho... Read more

(Love is Like a) Heatwave

Tuesday, August 09, 2011      6 comments

It hit 98 today. I walked the pups this morning before 9 - it was getting hot on the way back. Later, I walked over to Golden Corral for dinner - the heat was rolling off the sidewalks and streets. The breeze was hot. Sheesh! Martha and the... Read more

Fly, Robin, Fly

I found a new walk for the pups the last couple of days - straight out east to Tramway and back - about 4.5 miles. Takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes. We have to get back before 10 or it's too hot. Shalako has been a real trooper. Oddly enough, i... Read more

The Good, the Bad, and the OMG!

Thursday, August 04, 2011      8 comments

Well, something or someone messed up. I did my typical Wednesday program of sleep until 2 AM, get up and do chores, walk the pups 4.3 miles, shop, nap, get up and went to work. Sheesh. When the alarm went off @ 1800 (6P), I thought about resetti... Read more
