HB Grandpa

The boyz's grandpa turned 90 years old this past week.  Our family had to move my dad into an assisted living facility last winter after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Every time I visit my dad he still asks how the boyz are doing.  The boyz and I send out a very happy birthday to their grandpa...

Wonderful Gifts

Here were my favorite two birthday gifts. A new electric acoustic guitar and an t-shirt that sums things up pretty well...

Black Friday

Diego-san expects lots of gifts and treats on this day to honor him.

Happy Thanksgiving

Lots to be thankful for in our house.  Among them, a brother that lets you use him as a pillow.

A Wish

What would make Thompson really thankful is if the big unpredictable ape would turn up the heat in the house.

Theo's Opinion

The sun has been shining far too infrequently in these parts the last few weeks.

You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To

There's an old song called 'You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To' that's been covered by many artists.  My favorite version is from the jazz singer Shelia Jordan.  I think she might have been picturing this when she performed the song because Thompson sure fits the bill.

Box Boy

I got a pricy Dylan related book.  Theo got a box.  I think he's OK with that arrangement.

Alls Fair

Yesterday I had my annual physical. Today I had a root canal.  I reminded Diego-san that next time we take a trip to the vet, he has to remember ours is an equal opportunity house.

It's blippin freezing out.  None of us want to get out of bed.  Only one of us has to.

Theo Armstrong

One small step for man, one comfortable step for kittykind.

This is Thompson's version of a combination of a push up and a sit up.  It's how he stays in such stellar shape.

More Friday Night Fights or Shadow Boxing

I posted a similar video a few weeks ago but this is a regular occurrence in our house. That's why our life is so exciting.

Thank You Very Much

My siblings did a nice thing for my birthday.  They gave me a gift certificate so I could buy the electric acoustic guitar I've been eyeing all summer.  I ordered it and it supposed to be delivered today.  They boyz might not agree it was such a nice thing my siblings did.

Still Limber After All These Years

Although Thompson is getting older he still isn't too old to touch his toes.

It's Way Too Early

We got our first dose of winter yesterday with heavy snow, a terrible commute and now frigid temperatures. Diego-san doesn't understand why I got even crabbier than usual.

Monday, November 10, 2014


The boyz watched me officially turn 50 years old yesterday.  I don't feel a day over 65.  Diego-san helped celebrate by urping up his breakfast.  Theo ran around like someone set his tail on fire.  Thompson sat on my lap and purred away.  In other words, for such a milestone day, it was much like any other day in our house.

Contagious Joy

Diego-san is just bubbling over in how happy he is to see me.

Mr. D

My guy, Bob Dylan, played three shows at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Minneapolis this past week.  One of the shows was on election night so I couldn't go.  Thanks a lot Bob. I did go to the final two shows and quite enjoyed myself.  I splurged and bought a front row seat (very pricy) for the last show.  To quote one of his songs, "I’ll see him in anything so I’ll stand in line..."

Tempermental Artist

Diego-san said he'd be happy to turn in some more of his award winning Haiku but somebody is blocking his muse.

Cleanup Time

Thompson thinks whoever is supposed to be raking his yard needs to get up to speed.

Where's the Food Guy?

A little bit crazy work week.  From last Saturday to this Saturday I ended up working 70.5 hours preparing for Tuesday's elections.  Needless to say this was a bit disruptive to the boyz's schedule...
