Staples in my Head

Tuesday was like any normal day…except that I ended up with staples in my head. At lunch, I went to visit my doggie BFF. Our routine is a quick walk (In spite of being a greyhound, he’d have it no other way.), followed by some couch time, and then back in his crate with an […]

Stock Photography

We’re wrapping up a fabulous burger supper and talking about what to do on Friday/Saturday nights of our football-filled weekend. Lori (after stumbling onto some “today in Austin site”, scoffing at their generic look): “Argh! They use effin’ stock photography.” Emil: “Livestock? Cows?”

Sea Mammals

We see a Blue Healer cow dog “walking himself” by carrying his own leash in his mouth. He’s ready to romp and play and is trying very hard to get his owner on board with this idea. Lori: “That Healer needs some cows….or goats or sheep or something. What other animals get herded?” Emil: Whales. […]

Kitty Pong

Emil and the cats found a new game today. They named it Kitty Pong. They were animated and vocal about something (probably all the chaos in the house, today). Emil decided that after one meowed, he’d walk to the other one until she meowed. He did this back and forth with them a few times […]

Kitty Conversations

SCENE: meowing cats while we are cooking dinner EMIL: What is it? PURRRRRL: meow EMIL: Are you hungry? PURRRRRL: meow EMIL: Do you smell chicken? PURRRRRL: meow EMIL: Do you want chicken? PURRRRRL: meow EMIL: Do you want to share chicken with Sosta? (crickets chirping through the silence) LORI: laughing vigorously because animals understand much […]
