Sad Sad Puppy

I was watching this YouTube video that was on the EntirelyPets blog earlier today, and I was surprised at the range of emotions that I felt when I was watching it! On the one hand, it was funny, but on the other hand I felt angry. I know that if those had been my dogs, I would have scolded the one that stole the bone and given it back to the dog that had it in the first place. Both dogs had a treat, there was no need to be greedy!

Steak for Dinner

If you want to have a steak for dinner, where do you go?

I like to grill steaks at home. I would buy the best steak I could find at Sam’s Club and take it home to cook it just right.

But if I had to go out to a restaurant to eat the best steak, I have a lot of choices here. The Morton’s is really good but a little uppity. I think that Longhorn actually has the best atmosphere, the best menu and the best bar.

So my pick is Longhorn. What’s yours?

Learn to dance

When Jeff called us to tell us that he and Sandra finally set their wedding date, I was very surprised. They have been engaged for three years, and kept saying they were in “no hurry” to set a date. I think that Sandra finally started feeling her biological clock ticking, though, and now the date has been set for next spring – June 22. He told me that they have already booked their first dance lessons from John Cassese to start right after the holidays so they will be able to “strut their stuff” at the reception!

I am planning Thanksgiving dinner!  mmmmmm All I can think about is pie, but I know dessert should be the last thing you think about! First, we’ll have a turkey, of course, with stuffing! My wife makes sweet potatoes with brown sugar and apples. If you’ve never tried it, you should. Then we’ll have a salad and a few vegetables and rolls. Ok,  now let’s get to the PIE! I love apple pie, pecan, peach, chocolate and boston cream pie. How can I chose just one? I just realized I forgot the traditional Thanksgiving pie….pumpkin! So we may have more than just one pie this Thanksgiving!!

Making a living doing what you love

When I was reading what Joe Bunn wrote on his company website about making a living doing what he loves to do (playing music,) I was impressed that he has been able to make a living doing what he loves to do. Most of us poor schmucks out here in the real world are forced to work at a job they don’t like at all, just to make enough money to pay the bills. If they are lucky they might have a little bit of money left over to spend on what they love to do, and they call that a hobby. I wish everyone could love their jobs! It certainly would make life a lot more enjoyable!
