  1. The Sixth Photo

    December 16, 2008 by MyEye

    Laura M tagged me.  My assignment, if I chose to accept it, was to open the sixth photo file on my computer and select the sixth photo, post it, and tell the story behind it.  It turns out to be timely and definitely my pleasure to do just that.  I tag Tony from Tasmania and Jim Viscosi (DennistheVizsla’s dada) to follow the same procedure.


    This is my granddaughter Adrienne on Christmas Eve.  She was only a month over two years old.  The child was bald until she was about four, but had that great smile.  She loved her M & M bear.  Now she’s seven and loves Hannah Montana (Is that “Miley Papyrus?” — “Oh, Grandma, you know that’s not her name.”).  She is my greatest joy — you cannot imagine how happy I was to see that this was the sixth photo in my file.  Merry Christmas, everyone . . . and I love you, Adrienne.

  2. Okay — He’s Forgiven

    This is a dog at which I cannot stay angry.  He’s so funny and tries so hard (which makes him very trying much of the time).  Today he’s the office dog.  We just retrieved the Cardigan Rescue posters and I hung one in the office.  Chase is sitting on his favorite chair in front of it.


  3. Wandering Thoughts

    December 16, 2008 by MyEye

    I placed my second “damaged cell phone” claim within a year (really within three months), so once I get this new phone, I am uninsured.  I’ve whined below — so I’ll get over it, and be very, very careful where I set my phone down.

    Moving on to breaking news: it’s really snowing.  Our fairly cute but not very accurate weather dude said we’d have a couple of inches that wouldn’t stick.  NOT!  It’s been snowing since I went to the office at 8:30 this morning, and it’s still snowing, and is expected to continue through tomorrow.  Then it will clear out tomorrow night and start again around noon on Wednesday, then snow off and on through the weekend.  If that’s correct (I would not make book on it), I’ll take the dogs to the park and let them make snow devils — cute little children make snow angels, but the Cardis, and especially phone-eater-Chase, make snow devils.

    I spoke to the elementary school about the little girl I saw this morning and was told “that’s how she wanted to dress and it’s okay with her parents”.  Wow!  That seems closer to abuse and neglect than does the action/inaction in the abuse and neglect cases I occasionally handle.  Is there no one in that household that wants to make grown-up decisions?

    Time to put on Chase’s man pants (we’re still doing that), and go to bed.  Maybe tomorrow will be a snow day.  I can remote into the office computer and do some work from home, but stay home and do some work in my home.  If I don’t take care of some things around here, I expect the County will condemn the place.
