The other day I had a chuckle when I saw this sign. Why? Because Pedro and I are silly when we get together, quoting movie lines, saying silly things and this was one of our favorites. Of course, we knew the function of the sign, using the word “slow” as an imperative. Without punctuation, we decided to use it as an adjective. Therefore: Slow children at play. 🙂 We imagined watching them as they moved in slow motion … “Thrrrrrrrrrooooooowwwwwww…

From the feature picture alone, you can see that Dirk is quite the large dog. I mean, look at the nose on that there fella. Dirk, my grandpuppy, is Pedro’s dog, especially when he misbehaves, which is rare. He’s very well behaved, quite the charmer, and like most cool dogs, quite the celebrity. On the way out to take him for a walk, the ladies in the lobby of his apartment all knew Dirk by name and were quite enamored…

When I came back in, I wanted a sip of my Spicy V8 juice. Mmmmmmm! Tasty! I opened the refrigerator, expecting to see about 1/2 bottle remaining…

Dear Canon S90: We had a good run. Thanks for the thousands of photos that you provided during your two years of active service. Now, I send you on a mission, a mission impossible, if you will. You’ll be going to stay with one Mr. Tony Lester. This, my friend, will be an arduous journey, the likes of which you have never experienced. Things will ‘happen’ to you. You’ll start to malfunction for ‘no apparent reason’. You’ll endure scrapes, bruises…

Saturday morning at 2:20 AM, I noticed a different ‘sound’ in the house. Quiet. Gone was the sound of the ear flowing out of the vents, the distant hum of the refrigerator motor, the sound of the movement of the blades of the ceiling fan. All that remained was the sound of crickets from the open window. I awoke to find the house in total darkness. The power had been interrupted. I was without electricity. No mind, it was early…
