Grey haired old man on The Today Show. Shocker--it's Mark Spitz. I
remember seeing him in person after he won the 7 gold medals. I'm old.
Must take the puppy to the vet this morning. It's time for a snip
job on those little balls. Maybe he'll finally stop humping everything.
has become one of my new favorite blogs. I'm a former cake decorator and some of these
look like my cakes
Puppy was dropped off for trip to the vets. Now I'm going to go to
Kaiser for a blood pressure check. Doctor started me on meds a week ago.
Meds must be working. My BP at the doctor's was 136/90 a week ago;

MSNBC reporter, who claims never to have tasted Peking Duck, says

through books I borrowed from the library. Must take in more sun. Loving it!")
My kids used to talk about "facial discracial" all the
time. Never knew til today that it came from vollyball terminology. Live and learn.
The Democratic convention takes place the week before my daughter's

Finished leftovers for dinner--"something with rice in
it" for him, leftover chili for me. That means I'll have to cook something tomorrow.
I'm seeing more and more of the manga avitars. Pretty soon we won't
