Alert But Selective

Even though he rarely does as instructed, Theo wants me to be clear that he is all ears.

The boyz said they need a fourth before they can accurately recreate Mount Rushmore.

Not Big Enough House

We live in a three story, three bedroom, two bathroom house yet somehow Theo seems to always manage to bump into Diego-san.

Odor Tolerant

It's not a new blanket that Thompson is enjoying but since my feet were under it a few minutes before, it's a warm blanket. The question is the intensity of any lingering odors.

Viewing Choices

I was trying to watch an episode of 'The Simpsons.' Apparently the boyz thought I wanted to watch boxing instead.

Giving Up

I told Diego-san since I've been playing an electric guitar I might need to buy a microphone to hear my singing above the guitar playing. He made it perfectly clear this is all becoming way too ridiculous to even begin to protest...

Our Special Boy

The TV is on.  The sun is streaming through the window above.  Still Theo is most entertained looking at the wall.

There's Food at the Bottom of the Stairs...

Thompson can race up the stairs full speed.  Coming down the stairs however is a careful thought and being balanced process.  There's a life metaphor in there somewhere... I still find myself marveling at Thompson's every step.

Hanging on to the Sun

Theo is trying out the theory if he doesn't move, maybe the sun will stick around all day.

To Do List... Not

So many things to do... probably should get up and start getting some of them done.  yeah right.

Changing Perspective

Theo has decided my behavior isn't quite so strange when he looks at me from this angle.

When I saw this I became alarmed there was a gas leak in the house.

His Current Mission

Since the windows haven't been open in our house for quite a while (I keep telling the boyz I ain't payin' to heat the whole frickin' world) Thompson's mission has become to find the warmest place in the house. His new favorite is on this fleece blanket.  It's a Minnesota Twins blanket so obviously Thompson doesn't care about winning and losing. He's an equal warmth opportunity type of guy.

Dreaming of a Land of Treats and Combings

I don't think a camera in his face was what Diego-san was expecting to see when he opened his eyes...

Formal Attire Question

Since I dress like an absolute slob around the house Theo is starting to wonder why he has to wear a tuxedo all day long.

No Budge

Diego-san loves to sleep right by my side. He starts out on my right side and during the night he'll wander back and forth across my chest.  By morning he's firmly ensconced on my left arm half under the covers and out.  During the winter I really do not mind this since it's like having a nice heating pad by my side. Usually he'll jump out of bed soon after the alarm clock goes off because he knows that most days I'm going to get out of bed soon.

This morning it was so cold he refused to budge until I lifted my arm.  I guess I couldn't disagree with him, I didn't want to get out of bed either.

A Good Brother

Thompson used to groom Diego-san a lot.  That doesn't happen much anymore.  He spends more time grooming Theo.  I'm not sure what this implies about Theo's hygiene but I think Diego-san misses the nightly baths.

Almost a Common Bond

One of the nicer developments over the past year is that Diego-san has become much more tolerant of Theo. More and more they actually are in the same vicinity. Diego-san still requires some space between them, and often as is here, faces the opposite direction, but at least he doesn't get up and leave when Theo tries to join him.

No Trespassing

Thompson is trying to block the paparazzi from violating he and his brothers' privacy.

The Best Space Ever

I bought a new stand for my guitars. Theo immediately thought the space between the stand and the wall was the best place ever to race back and forth and to hide.  Now if I could only get him to like the 'music' from my guitar playing.

Piling On

For some of us it only feels like gravity is pushing down harder on us than others. For others it feels that way because you have a brother lying on top of you.

Look At Me

Theo wants to know why I keep trying to stare between his ears.

Saturday, January 03, 2015


Man it's been cold around here... The only certain defense is to curl up into as much of a ball as you can.

Friday, January 02, 2015


Theo: To lick his brothers
Diego-san: To finally successfully climb to the top of the food guy's head
Thompson: To get as many head scritches as possible
