Laughter reigns again

I've been travelling all summer and have just returned in the past week. Sorry for the blog silence, but I couldn't get internet most of the time.

So now I'm back from outer space, as Gloria Gaynor says, and everything is a wreck. The server at work is angry angry.

A seal blew out as the guy was power washing the window directly above my desk. That was wet.

I have what the doctor called "air trauma" in one ear. I call it deafness.

And then there's just the usual summer stuff.

All of this is to say that maybe blogging is not what I should be doing with my half-deaf, soggy, internet-deprived self. But at least it's all in perspective.

In the past 3 days I've been to a funeral and a visitation for two different men I've known. One lived a long good life and I'll still miss him. The other died suddenly and tragically. All who knew him will be troubled by his death for a long time to come. That kind of experience makes the little things more obviously little things.

To show that I'm not all gloom and doom, I give you Lilly. Lilly is a Weimaraner who belongs to one of my mom's friends. She has some ailment, obviously. She's undergoing acupuncture therapy. And, sorry Lilly, but I can't stop laughing at you, girl.

Lilly is beautiful but she looks like she has been in a tussle with a strangely incompetent porcupine! Glad you're back on the net!

It works for dogs too? I didn't know that! I'm surprised she's allow people to 'puncture her though. I half thought she'd attack. :)

Hello! I found you quite by accident when I Googled Kitchen 64. Glad to know you are here! I thought about you when I heard about Jim, and emailed our mutual friend to check in - so sad. Drop me a line and check out my blog sometime:
It is tough to post on a regular basis, but therapeutic!
