Dog house

Leave a comment

I don’t see many dog houses anymore. Most of the animals in this area have our home as their home. Remember when people would let their dogs roam the neighborhoods. It was a common thing. Some taught boundaries but a lot didn’t either. Even if a dog was on a leash, people didn’t carry around plastic bags with them. Times change.

Seems like I was in the dog house a bit as a youth. Who knows how many times I’ve been in it through almost 4 decades of marriage? I’m kind of glad they are going away, but I wonder what new term will replace the phrase “Being in the dog house” when referring to being in trouble?


I missed my walk I wanted to do today and I’m kind of disappointed in myself. The hours in the day just get lost at times. Seems like these last few weeks have been busier for some reason. And as soon as I correct for one thing like rest, something else gets cut short. Maybe I’m looking at it wrong. Maybe I don’t have to mix everything up in the same day?

I wonder if a schedule would help? Then again I have so many schedules for so many things I think that might just be a waste of time. As Nike says “Just Do It”.

Which leads me to Hump Days objective. Photos of my grand-daughter and maybe a few outdoor shots on the way home.


Random Thoughts of the Day

I think you can physically feel the pain when history is destroyed.

I’m still stunned by some of the stupid driving I see. And with the volume of it out there you would think it wouldn’t be as shocking. I had two people going at it behind me this morning and I thought I was going to hear gunfire because these two were playing chicken with each other, driving into oncoming traffic lanes and in and out between parked cars. And after that it makes it especially satisfying to work from home today.

Utz makes a very good potato chip.

Isn’t it exciting to cook something really good?

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
