After annoying him for a lifetime, it’s nice to know I haven’t lost my touch. So this dog pictures is just for you, Joe. Because I know it’s what you live for.
In this lovely photo, Carm (playing the part usually assigned to my sister Judy) is trying to pull a recalcitrant Snowy (usually played by me) through the fun of an afternoon walk in the sun. Neither Snowy nor I like the sun. And once Snowy has put his butt down, Carm has no better chance of moving him than my sister does of getting me to do her Bataan Death March… which is how normal people refer to her version of a brisk walk. Did I mention that she took a dog on this walk and halfway back, he sat down and refused to go another step until his owner came to pick him up in a car. It’s like I said… the Bataan Death March.

Apparently there is some concern that Alaskan Republicans will have difficulty differentiating between the two Dan Sullivan’s running for office in the upcoming primary. Here’s a suggestion. Don’t worry. They are cut from the same cloth. One and the same. The conservative Republican Alaskan mold is stamping them out in droves. So it just really doesn’t matter. To say nothing of how insulting it is to suggest that voters won’t know the difference after being bombarded with 80 gazillion ads for the Dan running for Senate. Here’s a thought… just vote for Joe Miller and don’t worry about getting confused.

Where the hell are my sunglasses? Damn unreliable staff I have. You’d think they’d keep track of these things.

Commercial advertisers should complain about the number of mind numbing political ads are running on our tv. Sometimes the same ad runs twice, back to back. So I have given up watching live TV completely. I’d rather read and tape the show. Then I can fast forward through all the commercials. This stops me from want to scream in agony at hearing one more time about why Dan Sullivan protects Alaska hunters or why Mark Begich is opposed to carbon tax or why… oh crap. Who gives a damn anymore? Just make the noise stop. My brain feels like it wants to take a vacation from my head and go somewhere quiet. In fact, at this point, I may not vote for either of them just because they have annoyed me more in the past few months than George Bush did in his entire eight years in office.

He was an integral to my youth as Little Joe. Both taught me what good men were like. Both showed me the kind of man I most was attracted to. And both clarified my someone hazy understanding of boys versus girls and that I most definitely was not gay.
Now they are both gone and a little part of my childhood has died with them.

I slept in on Saturday morning. This is what I found when I came out of my bedroom.
Guilt anyone?

I guess Sarah Palin wouldn’t understand the enormity of the issue of impeaching a president or any given elected official since she didn’t hang around long enough as our governor for us to impeach her. And trust me, all signs indicated there would come a point where we would have.

“Just look the other way and maybe he’ll go away.”
“But he’s sniffing my butt and he’s really big.”
“Just keep walking and maybe he’ll be too busy sniffing her butt to notice. Move slowly and quietly.”

Am I the only one who thinks watching the Daily Show and the Colbert Report equates to watching real news shows as opposed to the crap that’s on most of the other channels?

Most “gun friendly” legislative bodies want to mandate that you can carry a gun anywhere you’d like… except for into the building where they work. Think they get that we might be maddest at them? Or do they simply not trust the mental stability of the people they are empowering with guns?

Wonderful. Just wonderful. Rather than do any real business, let’s just act like three year olds and throw mud at each other.

I am finding that one of the best things about getting older… and trust me, this is a limited list… is that I no longer feel any obligation to fulfill social responsibilities that I don’t feel like exerting myself for. Not only do I not feel obligated, but I’ve finally turned the corner on the guilt and no longer feel guilty about staying home and hunkering in with my animals and a good book rather than go out and be social. So those of you whose social events I actually show up for should be honored. You are on a very short list in my life.

As I continue to suffer from dizziness every day, my brother reminded me that our mother also suffered from vertigo and dizziness. Wonderful. I’ve inherited everything from her except her petite figure and full head of hair. Just charming.

I always suspected that deep in your heart you were a real animal lover.
