Cutie Patootie

with 7 comments

jane-and-friend.jpgJane and I just fell in love with this nine-week-old basset hound puppy at the dog park last week. For several days now, I’ve been thinking Wouldn’t it be fun to have a puppy again? But then I did some research… apparently Bassets are notoriously hard to house break, and fairly hard to train in general. Wishful thinking… crushed.

Anyway, I thought the puppy (and the lady holding it) were just too cute to pass up a photo. 🙂 Click on it for a larger image.

New Bowling Ball

with 8 comments

bowlersdream_1993_43492844.jpgAfter months of having my middle finger in pretty bad pain from trying to bowl with my old ball, I finally caved today and bought a new one. It’s just like the one shown in the picture, but it’s actually darker purples and teals than this photo shows.

I’ve had the same bowling ball for 20+ years. It was one I got at K-mart, right after I moved to B’ham. Apparently (according to the ball driller today), the span between my thumb hole and my middle finger hole were too far apart. For the last several years, I’ve had to tape up my middle finger, so that the downward pull on it when I released would not hurt so much. I put a lot of speed into my delivery, so even though I only have a 10 lb. ball, it has a quite a bit of momentum when it leaves my hand. For years, the tape was enough to prevent injury, but since I’ve been bowling with this league, it has been injurious to the point of being bruised purple the day after bowling and being sore all week long.

Canine Joy

with 9 comments

Well, I finally took old Scouty-boy to the dog park this afternoon. It was the first time in his whole life that he’s ever been off the leash and not in a yard at the same time. (Birmingham didn’t have tons of dog parks like Atlanta does…at least not that I’m aware of). (Addition: After I wrote that I googled “Birmingham AL dog parks” and only two came up. I know both of these places, and neither of them have fences. I don’t really consider that a dog park!)

Anyway, I was a bit nervous, because Scout can get his hackles up in a hurry, but for the most part, he’s pretty calm. I was just hoping it was the calm Scout that would show up today. And I purposely remained relax as we walked to the gate, so that he wouldn’t pick up on my anxiety about the whole thing. Read the rest of this entry »

Here’s a presentation I put together for church. It’s the first time I’ve really used iMovie to put anything together, and I was in a hurry, but I think it came off pretty well. This song is my favorite from Sandi Patti, and it’s a good think because in editing this, I must have heard it a couple of hundred times. 🙂

The format is an mp4, so you’ll need QuickTime to play it. Enjoy.

Bless Their Little Hearts

with 4 comments

This is a sweet story about some Atlanta Girl Scouts sending cookies to the troops, letting them know they are not forgotten.

Were any of you in Girl/Boy Scouts? If so, what was one of the most memorable projects in which you participated?

(I was not a GS, so I have no tales to tell.)
