It’s official: President Moshe Katsav has been charged with rape. He’ll probably be out of office by the end of today. That pretty much sums up the news right now. Everything is dark, depressing, and desperate. Perhaps my perspective is being colored by the break-in, but it certainly seems pretty bleak. We lack leadership; our generals resign; our heads of state are deviants; our schools crumble; our enemies remain implacable. Oh, and Gill and I are still sick.
The only thing that gives us any comfort is patting Nadine’s ample belly, which is soft, squishy, mostly bald, and delicately scented.
So I have a challenge for you. Write in and tell me what cheers you up, puts you in a good mood, and brings the sun out in your life.
More break-in follow-up: Gill and I get some ID and credit cards back. Someone found some stuff by the side of the road on Route 6 and Gill was able to pick it up on Friday. Some of the stuff belonged to a neighbor who was robbed the same night. He came over to pick things up and we had a good venting session. He’s been robbed a few times and is really fed up. He’s decided to go the Rottweiler route, which seems foolhardy as he has small children.
The great search: OK, I’ve been talking about doggies for a long time now, but we’re ready to start. There is a lot of conflicting information out there, and I’ve read just about every “professional” piece, but what I’m looking for is personal experience. If you have had a small dog (as in very small), let me know. What did you like, what did you find annoying? What worked and didn’t? I have my own prejudices and preferences, but I want to hear from you.
