D is for Downtime

Saturday with no major obligations means a little time relax. Today that meant… …a little reading… …watching a little rugby (sporting many layers and drinking a venti latte) …some quality Spenser time… …dinner = Trader Joe’s Chile Lime Chicken Burger, Wegman’s 7 grain salad and a Southern Tier IPA. All together not a bad day. […]

B is for Barking

B is for Barking

Which this little guy…. ..does plenty of. I have employed various strategies to reduce his barking, such as yelling, “Stop barking!” or “Hey, stop barking!” or “Enough barking!” Surprisingly, none of these strategies has worked. Once, in frustration, I smacked him on the nose. He smacked me back (Not kidding). He climbed up on me […]

Spenser The Dog Looks At Me When I Leave For Work In The Morning

The Absurdities Just Keep on Coming

I saw this book at Barnes & Noble last night. I think this is the first book I’ve seen that actively targeted the tween eating disordered market. Perhaps they can bundle it with a nice volume on cutting from the how-to section. THIS, on the other hand is superfun from Slate.com. It’s an interactive map […]

Meet Fedora Dog!

We didn’t last long as a dog-free house. We missed Sharkdog (Akeesha) too darn much to come home to an empty house. This is Spenser. Spenser is a 7 month old long-haired Dachshund from South Carolina. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter by Furvever Dachshund Rescue. We have a family friend who is a […]

Book One of 2010 – Chasing the Bear

Chasing the Bear– Short book, novella really from Robert B Parker. There is no mystery to be solved, its a conversation between Boston PI Spenser and his Harvard educated psychologist girlfriend about his childhood. It details what made young Spenser the Spenser that he is today. Fun read for Spenser fans (I am one) but […]
