San Francisco!

I'm here in town for the 2nd annual California Open Scrabble tournament. The field of 132 is awesomely strong -- you have to go down to seed #31 to get a rating below 1700! Elizabeth and I took the ferry to Sausalito for dinner tonight at a fantastic little Italian restaurant called Angelino where I had a parsnip soup. La zuppa era molto deliciosa!

How old is this dog?

Inventing a birthday for Daisy made me wonder how old she feels. She seems much more dignified that she did a few years ago, if that makes any sense. I hate it that dogs have so much shorter life spans that we do! Keep on keeping on for a long time, Daisy.
You go, gal!

Inventing a Birthday for Daisy

Today I registered Daisy to compete in NADAC Agility Trials. So, the question was, what should I say for her birthday?? On January 5th in 2005, Daisy showed up on our doorstep. Dr. Seals guessed her age at 12-18 months. Okay, she was born on the Fourth of July! July 4, 2003, it shall be.And by the way, the best white dog ever was a 3-month-old puppy then...
You're still pretty cute, Tundra!

Too much wet!

I'm getting tired of high humidity mornings! The front porch is one massive puddle. Juno, however, thinks that sitting on the seawall in the morning is just a fine place to be.

Sunday Morning

Daisy, Juno, and I took a walk up at Scripps Institution of Oceanography this morning. SIO is a great place to walk, with lots of nice paths overlooking the ocean.
There haven't been a lot of great waves this fall so far, but this morning was nice.
Close up of those three lads out there, plus mucking around with the image.
I love the plants up there!

Juno wanted photographic evidence that she doesn't bark at EVERY statue!

Dirt, schmirt! If it came from the frisbee, it must be good!
