Gone to the Dogs...

After fiddling around for sometime on this design.. I believe this is the final. Now, what to say inside? Well, being NOT an animal lover... I really liked some of these... however, c would just kill me:
I loathe people who keep dogs. They are cowards who haven't got the guts to bite people themselves. Author Unknown (talk about cowardice)
When a man's best friend is his dog, that dog has a problem. ~Edward Abbey
Fox-terriers are born with about four times as much original sin in them as other dogs. ~Jerome K. Jerome, Three Men in a Boat (Hilarious book, by the way...)
Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear. ~Dave Barry
c, who loves dogs, will never go with any of these. So, I'll have to think of something else...

Kinetic Sculpture...

We had a special visitor this week.
He traveled a long way to get here. In fact, when he'd about had it.. and was ready to be done with that airplane... he still had 6 shows more to go. Do you gauge your time in shows? Well, it makes a lot of sense if you're an Elementary School age kinda guy.
I never did get a good photo though. He wouldn't look at me. The kinetic sculpture at the Clark Planetarium was just too wonderful and he couldn't take his eyes off it for more than 20 minutes. We had to bribe him away with popcorn.

Then we went to see a new 3D cartoon called Fly Me to the Moon. I forgot that 3D movies make me really motion sick for some reason... (NOw I REMEMBER!) and it was about flies and maggots... some of the flies go to space. Yuck. I'm still recovering. I hope the nephews liked it. One really small nephew said it was "a really good bug show". If you intend to see this one think 3-7 year old boys. I wish I had spent the whole time watching this cute guy and the amazing kinetic sculpture instead. Now that.. was fun. :)
