Happy Halloween :)

Weird weather- warm, grey and sticky, 61F & 90%.

Holly is not happy... we're back to our usual loop, but no tennis ball for one more day.

Boy I'm old! But it's so funny that other people seem far more hung up on it than I do :)

A nice day again, 62F and with just a little less sunshine than yesterday.

Still listening to Romeo & Juliet.

Friday, October 18, 2013


Simply gorgeous day! Lower humidity, warm sun and a cool, gusty wind; 61F.

Crispy has just started Romeo & Juliet at school, so that put it in my mind to listen to one of my favorite productions- done for a BBC documentary by 2 schools in Coventry a few years ago :)

At bit warmer again, 71F and overcast.

A bit stickier than yesterday and 64F.

It must be a full moon or something, another stupid dog owner today- this time a woman with a German Shepherd that had a go at Holly :(

I should have known it was going to be trouble as soon as I saw the metal control collar on it... Holly is fine but what really pisses me off is that she didn't even apologize for her dog's behavior, just carried on as if nothing had happened- I swear some people are just without any common sense or decency!

A nice walk spoiled

Nice day, 68F and sunny.

Spoiled by a twit who should not have a dog- he walked past me in the other direction with his pit bull who took Holly's tennis ball, he then looked at me and said "once he has a ball I can't get it off him, but you're welcome to try". Wanker!
