Steve Colbert and the U.S. Election

This video sums it all up for me at least.

Now he's got two!

To think, we were worried about him, now he's got two!

Jakes first trip to the beach

The puppy grows up and up

My first time in the ocean

My first clamshell

Faithful puppy and Lynn

Always a nice day to walk on the beach

Strange cameraman catches his eye

He doesn't seem sure of all this picture

Pause for Reflection

We were out buying a graduation card for Garrick and after picking the appropriately funny one, we headed off on our mission to procure trees and shrubs for the house. We planted four rosebushes in our front flowerbed, ordered another apple tree to replace the one that was mangled by all the snow and four bushes to plant alongside the fence to shield the neighbors from the hounds from hell or Petit-Rocher, whichever works for you.

We couldn't arrange the flight for Jonathan due to AirMiles restrictions on one way fares so he will have to come out another time. It was a shame because I know he was looking forward to the visit and so were we, well with any luck we'll have him before the winter or in the following spring.

I'll be heading off to see my family in Toronto in a month or so and that will be nice, I'll even be there for Dads birthday, he turns fifty this year, which makes me thirty and my brothers in their forties. With my kids being in their twenties, this is gonna be a hard sell :) It will be an occasion nonetheless. Anna's cooking, Rick's movies and nephews and nieces galore along with all of their children, it's always such a busy and vibrant place. My hair might even be longer than Tedd's now, that would be something, oh and regardless if it is or not, I have no grey :)

I'll post some more pictures of the puppy since he is growing so fast, he'll be a dog in no time at all. He had his first trip to the beach a few days ago and it was an exciting time for him and for us too since we haven't owned a dog like him before, he can be let off leash, he doesn't run away, doesn't bark at everything he sees and generally is everything they say that a golden retriever is, a family dog.

He's one hot duck, at least she thinks so

He's gone from mourning the loss of his previous mate to showing his new one where all the good food is. We couldn't be happier! It took him 11 days to find her, it took me years to find my perfect mate. He must be some kind of gigalo or something.

Alone again, Unaturally

Here he is, all by himself, his mate was killed by a truck driver heading down our road chatting happily on his cell phone. We are hoping he will find another mate but so far, it doesn't look like he has. Maybe he's not even looking. We all know that these kinds of things happen but kind of like a favorite pet, we had become accustomed to their arrivals, he doesn't like crossing the road he preferred to take off from our snowbank but she always wanted to cross the road to explore the goodies in the ditch on the other side. We'll have to wait and see what happens next.
