Celebrating Memorial Day in the United
States. I found several nice sites here
as well as a nice site by the PBS
television station for their annual Memorial Day Concert.
Day of rest. After getting the house clean, showered, and lunch I was
going to be very ambitious and work yesterday afternoon while Bob napped.
Didn't happen. I sat down at the computer to work but after nearly falling
asleep while checking my mail and journal pages I gave up. I hit the couch,
watched a little of the Indy 500 and woke up two and half hours later. I
took the dogs out and decided to give up for the day. I played hall ball
with the dogs and watched the remaining laps of the race then switched
over to the golf. Bob slept all afternoon. I switched the laundry, fixed
Lenore a drink and took the dogs out again before the Coca Cola 500 came
on at 5:00. Around 5:45 I got Bob up so I could fix dinner, cream chip
beef on noodles. I watched the race while we ate, cleaned up the kitchen
and took a quick break to help walk the dogs.
Malcolm is still getting rather confrontational with Duncan.
Duncan will be lying there minding his own business and Malcolm just gets in
his face growling. I had been getting in Malcolm's face to teach him he is
not top dog and was down on the floor exhibiting my alpha role when a
fight erupted. I probably could have removed myself quickly enough from
the fray but one of the dogs smacked me right in the nose with his head.
Fur, teeth, and dog bodies were flying as I was trying to get up and make
sure my nose wasn't broken. All of sudden one of them chomped me right on
the left boob. Marcia, I know, way
too much information, Anne
started it with her female anatomy conversations.
Fortunately it did not break the skin, and NO, there will not be any
pictures. I can just hear the doctor now, "uh huh, you claim your dog
bit you where?" Needless to say it hurt like hell as Bob finally got
out into the hall from his office to get it broken up. I dragged Malcolm
to his crate downstairs--we moved it from up here because we were not using
if very much--and left him to calm down for about an hour. I finished
watching the race in peace, which turned out very well as one of my
favorite drivers won.
This morning, black and blue but nothing more serious, I shall survive.
I had planned to work in the yard but right now it looks as if it will
pour down rain any minute. It was not supposed to rain until this
afternoon. I guess I will go to the gym and leave the yard work to
A peaceful moment. I snapped this last Sunday when we had the dogs penned
while I cleaned house. Malcolm and Kerry being snuggly. They do all get
along real well most of the time if we can just get past this fear aggression
thing with Malcolm.
Have a nice holiday. Nothing special planned for us today.
