Beware of Retirement

January 13, 2010 at 10:31 pm 4 comments

My punishment for retiring before I’m technically old enough to leave the work force is I’m lacking the aches, pain, lack of energy or desire to rest possessed by most people who give up the 9 to 5. As a result…I’m hopelessly over committed to all kinds of things that pay nothing because, well, I’m home. Pfffttt…

More interesting, at risk of this becoming a dog blog, is the status of our new kids, Walker and Iliana. She’s overcome her fear of anything outside a cage remarkably well and now that we’ve got her bulked up a little it was time for the long overdue dog grooming.

She’s the one in the pink halter collar. Walker, while well adjusted in most areas, is a big baby regarding getting his hair cut. He’ll spend the next four or five days pouting.

Iliana, on the other hand, regarded the whole adventure like a day at the spa.

Even though she did her best to jolly Walker out of his post haircut blues, our boy prefers his “surfer after an especially gnarly wave” look over this military version.

Men. Can’t live with ’em, can’t throw ’em into the snow and tease them out of pouting.

    I am so happy little Illiana is doing well and finally living a normal dog’s life. She’s such a cutie.

    Anhinga – Thanks, she is a cutie and just the sweetest little companion.

    LOM – Thanks, since I had nothing to do with their good looks, I have to agree with you.

    Kay – Everyone should have a dog.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
