Five foot perimeter

On the TV show "How I Met Your Mother," the character of Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) was a germophobe.  In one episode, everybody had the flu except Barney, and he went around with his hand sanitizer telling everybody, "Please maintain a five foot perimeter."  It goes without saying that he got sick, and was the sickest of everyone.

The five foot perimeter has become one of those inside jokes, a/k/a family shorthand.

Here are Tokyo and Zing maintaining the five foot perimeter :)

Look..... they each have their own special towel.  Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

Notes to self

Find a different word for the word "favorite."

Just blog instead of making lists of stuff to blog,

Keep working on story #4 like it's due next week even though we get another week on it.

Best of the best

Favorites from today-


Bloopers are my favorite kinds of photos for all kinds of reasons.

On the last batch of cousin photos, John Sam was the only one wearing shoes.  Who noticed he was the only one wearing shoes this time too?  muahaha

still not happy

It looks better, but not 100% what I wanted.   Some pictures that were previously centered are now aligned left.  I don't like the look of that.

I hope that sitting in the courthouse today for over 8 hours fulfills my civic obligation to show up for jury duty for a good long while.  I reallllyyyy hope they stop sending me an unusually high number of summons because I know people who haven't ever been summoned.  Yet I get at least 2 per year.  I also know people who would love to serve on a jury.  Why, then, can't those people just do it?  It could be like the do-not-call list.   If you don't mind receiving calls, you don't have to get on the list.  If you don't want to serve, though, there should be a don't-want-to-be-picked-for-jury-duty list that you can sign up for.

Going to Sebring for spring break.  One more workday and then off for a few days!   Woohoo!

Do your feet fit a limb?

Owl pix from the backyard.  Today is the 3rd day in a row I've seen them in the same tree.  It's spring after all....... so love must be in the air.


I've heard wives's tales that owls are bad luck and good luck.  So far, so good (knock on wood).

For my smart-phone-lovin-friends

[~Sorry, couldn't resist~] 

I have a special, magic, non-smart phone that does something very, very cool:  it makes phone calls!

Imagine that

Burying bones

I've heard about dogs burying their bones, but have never actually seen one do it in real life.  That is, until I watched Zing do it two times in the backyard.  I was impressed by his digging skills, how gently he laid his rawhide down in the hole, and how he used his nose and paw to cover it up.  When I asked him to get the bone, he dug a little with his paws, then flipped it over with his nose, and picked it up.  Pranced off like he was allllll thatttttt..... no chips required.  ;-)
