The last post was all about sports, so this one is about the stuff that all you non-sports people might care about. I am still in the same job, albeit with more responsibilities, and a little more pay. I still live in the same house with the same family ;-). My son is now a 5th grader, playing his trumpet and piano. My 2nd child is now in 2nd grade, and my third is about to turn 4, so she isn’t in school yet. She was really happy when the other two got out of school in May, but after a week, she asked my wife, “When do they go back to school?”
Angus is now almost a year old, he weighs 60 lbs, and he is generally a good dog. He still “counter surfs” whenever the kids leave food on the table, but that’s a matter of training the kids, not the dog. His other problem is that he jumps up onto the back door, which scratches the screen window. Don’t know how to break him of this other than to put a shock collar on him and shock him every time he does it. That’s one idea. Any others?
Speaking of Angus, I am watching the Cubs game, and Derrek Lee just hit a 2 run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to push the Cubs ahead of the Astros by one run. I shouted “YEAH!!!” and Angus (who had been taking a nap on the floor) came running over to me and sat at attention, as if to say, “What?? What is all the fuss about?” I didn’t know how to explain it to him. I know, I said no sports, but this was about Angus, not sports. 😉
That’s all for now.
