I feel as though these little weekly visits are just catching up times, so I hope all is well with you. We’re all fine as rain here in Middle Earth. For those who care (and, I do) the Cardinals are playing the Giants in the NL playoffs and the game tonight will be carried on network TV as opposed to the last games that were shown on MLB or TBS, cutting those of us without cable or satellite out of the mix. Who says baseball isn’t all about greed? Really. I just remember Kenny Boyer, Bob Gibson, Lou Brock and all the other great ball players that made being a kid in St. Louis a very special time. Thanks, guys.
So, where was I? Oh, yes. Grover the Wonderdog is well. He has taken it upon himself to keep the neighborhood children in check. When they start yelling too loudly (and, we have one very troubling child who screams all the time), he booms out his bark and they quiet down and mosey on away from his house. I find it endlessly amusing and praise him for his ability to protect his house from unruly playing children. Truly the nemesis of any suburban neighborhood.
See how closely she watches? Nothing gets past her……unless she’s asleep in her basement and when that happens I could drive a truck through the living room and she wouldn’t wake up. I cannot express fully how safe and secure I feel with these two around. No, honestly, I cannot express fully how safe and secure I feel.
I have been knitting and am making great headway on my second Christmas gift. I so wish I could share these with you. Right now. Of course, then I would be screwed for Christmas so I guess that can’t happen. Instead, I will share my World Series Sweater.
So, stop by anytime. We really should get together more often. I will try, but until then, here’s the soundtrack for the day. “I’m Going Home” by Ten Years After.
