Now I Want Otters

Leave a comment

My daughter posted this morning, which makes me look like the consummate slacker, so I figured I’d better make an effort at putting something up.  Then I saw this video at Baboon Pirates.  Check it out; you’ll want otters too!

And just because he’s mine, here’s a picture of my grandson playing on the swings.

Ahh...there's nothing like having the wind in your hair!

Best Buddies


My niece is visiting my sister with her two rug rats.  It’s a shame that grandma’s dogs don’t like kids.   This is Zeke, the Great Dane, and 14-month-old Alex.

There's nothing like a mid-afternoon nap on the deck

On another happy note, my grandson is coming to visit me later this month.  Oh, and his Mom & Dad, too, I guess.

My beautiful daughter has started her own blog.  She’s decided that since her brother and I are both bloggers, she should give it a shot.  It’s kind of like a family tradition.  As a wife, a mom, a student, a dog owner/lover, and a combat veteran, she has much to offer.  Please stop by and speak howdy!

It’s My Own Fault for Drinking Red Wine With Chicken


I made roast chicken and fettuccine Alfredo for dinner, and poured myself the last glass from a bottle of Merlot to go with it.  Then I proceeded to knock the glass over into my lap, all over the plate and the table, not to mention the floor.  I”m such a klutz.  Khaki pants with red wine stains.  Light brown leather shoes with red wine stains.  And I didn’t even get a sip – like I said, it was the last glass.  Oh well.  At least there was more chicken and pasta.  And chocolate ice cream for dessert.  I didn’t take a picture, so here’s the June pic of my grandson, instead (Sorry, Laura.  I know he’s just a baby, but I think he’s perfect.)

June 2010 - 5 months old

My daughter has turned into a decent photographer.  Here’s a couple more that she took that are NOT of my grandson.

Twitterpated Lizards on the Wall

I’m not sure why this one is so small, but if I try to make it larger it gets all pixellated and looks really crappy.

Shy Lizard Hiding in the Bushes

I told her today that she’s discovered a hidden talent for bug and reptile photography.  Who knew?

The Aforementioned Photos as Promised


Those of you that follow Jean on Facebook have already seen these.  Move along.  Nothing new here.  As for the rest of you, I’d like for you to meet MY GRANDSON!
