All Kinds of Stuff

I have no post per se today. So I can just post random stuff. Stuff that isn't big enough for an individual post.

Oh hell - call it what it is:  filler.

After our movie the other day, we found (damn those ads on the movie screen before the film!) a new old fashioned ice cream parlour. Sweet Moses.

No, there are no religious implications here - the founder of Cleveland was.....ta da, Moses Cleveland.  So no burning bush or parting of the sea stuff.

But don't eat a full brownie fudge sundae for dinner - no good can come of it.

Let's see - Sunday yoga was tough. I knew it would be when I saw the instructor in an orthopedic boot. I knew she was going to have something to prove - and she did. Everything was on fast forward. She'd be on the third position before you had a chance to get into the first. And no, this was not just me. I was happy to have the class end.

After yoga was lunch with my cousins, some of their kids and some family friends.  Mind you, I'm pushing 50, but I kind of thought it funny that we were at the "kids's table". There was an older faction who sat together and then us 40 somethings - and their kids. I'm not sure I can grow-up if I try.

And then there is a Petey story from yesterday morning. Well, Petey is in it - but not a story about him really.

It's been raining on and off here this weekend. We need it, so I'm not complaining.

Yesterday, I was doing our morning walk and not only was the sidewalk flooded due to the rain, but these people had let their sprinklers run too, completely making a humungo puddle that we had to walk around. So what do I do?  I cut through their tree lawn, which was also saturated.

Wet muddy ground.  One determined dog pulling. One Blobby face down in the mud - glasses flying off his face.

If you ever wondered if the dog would come back and rescue me or go get help - fear not.  He turned around once, looked at me and tried to trot off.

Man's best friend.  Pffft.

It's all ok. It was a shower day anyways - and it was 06:20.  Unless someone was standing at their window, no one saw.

With all the pics you take and we don't get to see this!? I'm disappointed.

I really do think many good things can come of a full brownie fudge sundae for dinner. At least, this is a challenge I'm willing to accept.

I have only done (OK...attempted) yoga a couple times but rushing it seems odd. Whether it's for the spiritual benefit or just the stretching it seems like speed would be the wrong approach. Hmmm

Mmm, I saw that brownie sundae and almost jumped through the screen.

Why do you blame Petey for everything?

I thought cleveland was names after a local tribe, The Cleves. ????/

Just remember: "There's no point in being grown up if you can't act a little childish sometimes." And that includes playing face down in the mud with your little dog too.
