A collection of things that have been going on around here of late: We lost my Mom in early May. She was 93, and had a stroke last August which she recovered from relatively well. She had some weakness, although she was walking a little. Her speech was slurred at times and she had trouble … Continue reading Miscellanea
A mélange, if you will, of tidbits on a variety of topics. I mentioned a few weeks ago that we got one of those DNA test kits for Lambeau. We have always suspected that he has some bully in him, but the actual results surprised me. He is 100% American pit bull terrier. Surprising because … Continue reading Much Ado About Nothing
Well, I did it. I got a DNA test for Lambeau. We know he's a mixed breed, and were told he has "American pit bull" in him, but I have always been curious about what else might be mixed in there. He was from a rescue litter, so it could be anything. I got the … Continue reading Who Are You?
A few unrelated jumbles of thought for the beginning of a new month: Saturday was Halloween. Our town decided not to cancel trick-or-treating this year, but encouraged masks for everyone and the usual social distancing practices. We did have candy to hand out. Yes, I wore a mask- a proper one. Didn't get many kids … Continue reading And Just Like That, It’s November!
In the good old summertime, I am sitting inside in the nice air conditioned rooms. The air temp (Sunday) is 95. Heat index is 102. I am not going outside unless I have to. I watered all the flowers and veggies earlier, swept the deck, and took the dog out this morning. He'll need to … Continue reading Monday Musings: In the Good Old Summertime

I probably pissed someone off last week. I took Lambeau out for his morning pee-and-poop. We walked around the cul-de-sac as usual and he did his thing. On the way home, he decided he wasn't quite finished pooping so we walked along the side of the garage toward the back of the house and he … Continue reading Monday Musings: He’s My Dog. I Get to Decide Who He Interacts With

This rogue planet has an incredible magnetic field and some other unique qualities: Rogue Planet A lot of study needs to still be done, but it looks like "grain free" foods may not be good for your dog. It's not that dogs need grain, it seems they don't need the fillers being substituted and those … Continue reading Wednesday Wanderings: Weird Planet with Auroras, Grain Free May Not Be Good for Your Dog, Duck with Many, Many Ducklings, and Metalheads On the Run
I'm late getting this out, but it's been a Monday morning, for sure. Mr. Lambeau had a sick tummy this morning. That's the second time in a couple days. Not sure what's going on- maybe the heat, but he spends most of his time inside in the AC. He has wanted to go out and … Continue reading Monday Musings: It Has Been A Monday
