AKA my day, Patrick Thomas McDonald.
(He really doesn't wear this hat all the time, just for special nautical events and his birthday)

Sometimes there is just nothing to blog about. In these instances it's best just to restate the obvious.
Yes, I do love brick.

Bad Dog!

Today as I was pulling my wash out of the machine to throw into the dryer something fell to the ground. At first I thought it was a bug but on closer investigation I saw that it was a small foot. In most houses that would seem weird but right away I knew who's "Left Foot" (ha ha) it was. Fadda Mark doll! I ran to wear I keep my menagerie of dolls I travel with and take awkward photo's of around the world and sure enough he was missing a foot and if that wasn't bad enough, the original doll that started it all, Courtney's hand had been bitten off!
After wrongly accusing my mom blame fell squarely on Chewie's haunches. Since he must have done it sometime this week when my revolving suitcase was on the floor I could hardly get mad at him. But I do feel bad for the dolls. I hope they are not ostracized for being different. If anything I hope they can learn from this experience and perhaps one day give a talk to thousands, maybe at NCYC on, overcoming having one of your limbs being eaten by a yellow lab.
We can only hope.

Things I learned on a Run

1. Enya and Norah Jones do not belong in one's ipod while running. They make you run slower. I bet Enya and Norah can't even sing to themselves while they run because it would slow them down. I wonder if they hang out and do stroller strides together.

2. Horses who like to be pet never hang out by the fence. The horses that do hang out by the fence are the dumb ones who can't tell the difference between a finger and a carrot.

3. While picking up your dogs "business" is required in the county park where I run apparently picking up after a horse is not. I suppose those would be some pretty big baggies you would have to carry around.

4. Coyotes eat something orange in their diet and no one owns them except God so their business is also everywhere in the park. You can't fine God. You can try to sue Him but His lawyer is really good.

5. Running is dumb.

6. I run a slow 5 miles because there are giant hills by my house. Although I run fast down them in the beginning of the run by the end of the run Enya comes over my ipod and it's all I can do just to walk up them and get my finger bitten my a rabid horse.

Flat Teddy opened for me, I taught a class on fruit consumption in the 13th century. I forgot my slides so I made shadow puppets.

I killed!

Erie at night reminds me of Las Vegas, but different. It was a 2 WalMart trip. 2 different was VERY special.
