  1. Dejavu All Over Again

    Not again!  Yup.  It’s my phone and the leather case.  Just when he’s lulled me into a false sense of security, he takes the phone and chews it to smithereens.  Chase is a bona fide brat!


  2. Musings on a Gray Day

    December 15, 2008 by MyEye

    I drove to my office a little while ago.  Kip is with me because it’s his turn to be the office dog.  Today we are having winter.  The gray sky is only a couple of inches above the ground and stray snowflakes are starting to fall.  There’s a breeze, and it is cold outside.

    When we turned west onto one of the more traveled streets near my home, I saw a little girl — perhaps eight years old — walking east.  There is an elementary school about six blocks away.  She was wearing a pink hoodie and gray knit shorts with tennis shoes and thin socks.  But it’s so cold!  I pulled over and asked her if I could give her a ride to school.  She was well-taught and wouldn’t accept a ride even from a nice older woman (me) with one of the cutest dogs in the world (that’s Kip) wagging frantically.

    I’m going to stop by the school a little later and see if the principal knows who she is.  If I can find out her size, I hope she would accept some long pants and warm socks. I am so sad.  I know she’s not the only child in our City who is going without basic needs: warm shelter, food, warm clothing.  I also fear that things will be much worse before they are better.
