She’s Beauty and She’s Grace

Remembering last year’s FallWoman with injured legs struggles to walk.

Kind of reminds me of when the coyote got the boomerang glued to his butt.  As graceful as a sea cow on land!

In the year since the fall I have regained the ability to walk, but there is no grace to my gait.  I move like a broken wind-up toy.

Aw, I would never make fun of your walk.

 Yes I would!

My boys are still at large at the museum, unsupervised.  If you would like to see what they have been up to while everyone is gone, pick up a copy of Dream Our World.  Inside, the pups visit the Museum of the Imagination and view the world of art from a canine perspective.

Catch Up On My Reading

Still remembering The Fall

While I am injured, maybe I can catch up on my reading.

Mom, he keeps stealing my toys! This little twerp is hogging all the sunshine!

Come here so I can beat you up! Yeah, well I'm gonna go pee on your bed!

I'm hungry! When's dinner? I gotta go potty! Then again, maybe I won't.....

Go away. I'm sleeping.

How dare you portray me as anything but the angel I am!

If you would like a book for your puppy to interrupt, order a copy of Dream Our World!

Inside, Toby and Geordie visit the museum of their dreams while they enjoy a day of unsupervised fun.

Actually, I have thought of this often lately.  Several copies of Dream Our World were being sold at a local museum when the world came to an end.  Bitey and Toby really have been locked – unsupervised – in a museum for months.  It makes me wonder what kind of adventures they have been having without my knowledge.  Hmm, maybe someone should write a book…

Dream Our World is available from Amazon.

Toby’s Book Club

What are you doing? I am reading a Mitch Rapp book so that I can be a super spy, too!

That's not how it works. You have to EAT the book to absorb its power. Really? Well, OK.

You want some Parmesan with that? No, I'm good.

Family sent me a book recently.  Toby got a hold it before I did.  He declared the book…

More food in the dish; fewer books in the tummy.

Just like real Bitey Dog, this bag is always hungry.  You can fill him with your lunch (which you know you are going to do anyway.  I mean, look at those eyes!) and take him to work/school.

Bitey Dog Lunch Bag

Bitey Dog Lunch Bag enjoys some of the same activities as real Bitey Dog.  He likes peeking between flowers.

Happy Anniversary!

Today is Bitey Dog’s 6th year anniversary at Word Press.  I am sure that somewhere Geordie is very proud of what he started.

Happy Cairn terrier pup

Yup.  I’m happy!

Go away. I'm sleeping.

Go away.  I’m sleeping.

Toby, on the other paw, has a more casual attitude.

If you would like to donate a copy of Dream Our World to your local library, please feel free to do so.  I have heard nothing from my local library despite repeated attempts to contact them about the catalog number.  If you do donate, the WorldCat number will still need to be assigned.

Today Dream Our World went on sale at a museum!  The boys finally got their paw in the door.  Just doing a little celebrating.

Today is also Day 6 of me going without my glasses.  I’ve got to say that so far I like it.  That may change after a while as I find that I can’t use the computer or drive.

I never gave much thought to eyeglass frames, but there are a lot of choices out there.  There a different metals, organic/inorganic acetates, wood, bone, horn, shell and bamboo.  There are even companies that will custom craft your frames based on measurements you take of your face with your phone.

While it seems interesting to have eyeglass frames custom made in Europe, I  worry what would happen if I ever needed a repair or a new prescription.  I started going to an optician years ago so that I could have same-day service rather than having to wait 2 weeks for my frames to be sent to a lab.  How much worse it would be if the company were overseas.

So far, I have made no frame decisions but continue doing my eye exercises every day and avoid a lot of computer work.  Toby likes it because we are spending more time outside.  I enjoy looking at trees and buildings and hillsides to challenge myself as to how much detail I can see.

Don't worry, Mom. I'll help.

Maybe soon you won’t be tripping over me when we go out, Batty?

 

 

 

 

Double Oops

My last post was about Bitey and Toby’s book finally being assigned a card catalog number.  I found out I was mistaken about an hour after I posted, so I hurried to hide the post before I could embarrass myself.  Oops, instead I just made the post so that no one could comment on it. If I were my own employee, I would fire myself.

Anyway, please forget any mention of Bitey making it into the library system.  He’s not there yet.
