Got the pups groomed today - they're so pretty and smell so good. Shalako had bows in her hair for about an hour (actually, the first one came out in about 15 minutes), while Samurai managed to shed his bandana in the car on the way home. Got th... Read more

Mighty Mouse and Superman
Thursday, June 16, 2011      7 comments

There's no real words to the Superman theme. Sigh. Try Googling it and you get some strange hits, although the theme to Scrubs is "I'm No Superman" and is cute. Look, up in the air - it's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's SUPerman!! ... Read more

Take My Breath Away

When wil the smoke haze and ash end? I've been OK, but have many friends here on SP and the real world that are having trouble. The news folks actually recommended NOT exercising animals in it. From the 1986 movie Top Gun, written by Georg... Read more

The smoke haze is worse in Albuquerque (from the Arizona fires) - bringing in lots of people with lung and heart problems. Not to mention the intoxicated patients. I've had 3 pull out their IVs tonight. Sheesh!... Read more
