  1. Ending 2009 With a Wordle

    We haven’t done a “Wordle” for a long time. To end 2009, here is one created from our most recent posts:

  2. Ending the Year With a Little Fun

    December 31, 2009 by myeye

    Adrienne spent the night.  We went to watch our Lady Lobos who played Texas A & M.  Unfortunately they lost.  This morning I had Adrienne up and dressed in her new outfit.  A long skirt, a really pretty print blouse, black boots — and off we went to Federal Court.  I had a brief hearing this morning and called the Judge’s Courtroom Deputy to see if the Judge would meet my granddaughter.  He kindly said he’d be delighted.  We went into the courtroom and waited.  Just before the docket was to start, the Deputy called us back into Chambers.  The Judge came down in his robe and shook hands with our girl.  They chatted for a moment, I told him she really wanted to see someone leap up and yell, “Objection”, that I had made that request of all the attorneys out there and no one would do it.  The judge got a laugh out of that, and Adrienne was star struck (it’s not ALL about the Jonas brothers).

    We went back to the house and changed into our daytime clothes, picked up our puppy and came to the office.  Adrienne had a plan for Holmes — I think it was a pretty good one.  What do you think?

    This was such an enjoyable way to spend the rest of Adrienne’s day with me — and Holmes now knows what “tunnel” means:  run through the green thing and get treats and hugs.  That’s a dog’s life!

  3. Is This the Seventh Year?

    December 30, 2009 by myeye

    It happens every seven years. Every seven years, I have a spring in which I am allergy-ridden. Each time that seventh year rolls around, I’m given allergy tests and am allergic to completely different things than I was allergic to seven years before

    I woke up this morning with my eyes swollen shut.  I have been sneezing since six AM.  So now I sound awful and my throat is sore.  I look as if I sparred with Holly Holmes (our local lady boxing champ).  I can’t remember which was the seventh year past.  It gets so miserable that, in the past, I’ve visited the emergency room for adrenalin shots.  I really do not have time for this right now — and it seems to be starting awfully early.  We have been below freezing every night.  I can’t imagine it’s the kitchen mess — because a) no one has done any work in there, and b) whatever’s there has been there for a long time and I’ve not reacted to it.

    So, please, if you see me on the street, don’t let your children laugh and point.

  4. Kissed on the Forehead December 29th

    December 29, 2009 by myeye

    Holmes is today’s office puppy.  My client who has Golden Retrievers came in for a meeting.  She grabbed my puppy (much to his delight) and gave him a big kiss on the forehead.  The red target shows about an inch below the very top of his blaze.  See what happens to cute puppies that come to work?
