A Dog I Could Love


I spend a lot of my time telling people I will never own another dog, never. This is a borzois, and I would have a hard time saying no to having one of these dogs. I believe I could have an intelligent conversation with this dog and it wouldn't bark all the time I was talking. I read an article this morning that stated Congresswoman Gabby Giffords is being evaluated to see if she qualifies for this kind of dog as a service dog. "Operation Wolfhound, which operates out of Arizona, uses borzois because the breed has the temperament most suitable to respond to stress. Congresswoman Giffords worked with Operation Wolfhound from the beginning and her staff is very important to them." The breeder in the article is donating 5 of her 12 dogs to Operation Wolfhound that places them as service dogs for veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I think you will find the article interesting. The pictures are from the Internet but I do not know how to give credits for them.

Time to Move


Nowhere spectacular. Out of the living room and back into my office. I miss being in my office. I really do. But, I am a procrastinator. If I find a comfy spot I can find dozens of reasons not to budge. In my office I have a six foot work table (picnic table). Everything I need is on that table and I have it set so I'm facing my most creative direction (that's another post). It's all perfect. It's all cluttered just right. Once a year youngest daughter sheepishly asks to borrow my table. She has a large family and many guests for dinner and buffet style is the only sane way to serve. So once a year my office gets a major overhaul. Files cleaned out. In/out baskets sorted and pitched (the mail and notes not the baskets). Clean, clean, organize. This year when the table left I moved to the living room to enjoy my decorations. 

Since I usually have them on the sun porch the neighbors get to enjoy them but I don't. This year the porch stayed empty and I enjoyed my decorations. The daughter did something new this year. She returned my work table on the 16 of July. What's up with that? Didn't matter. I still didn't move to my office. You see, in that short time I managed to cover every open surface with "something to take care of later." Now it's later. There's a mess in there. I have straighten it all up before I can work in there. I hate the idea of starting the year by repeating what I did less than a month ago. It's all done now. Ready to welcome me to write. Must admit I'm more than a little excited. Does a clean organized workspace excite the creative juices for you?
