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

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

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

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

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
