Just don't have the energy for a proper blog post

I'm sure there's plenty I could blog about. I really should, but I'm just too tired to think about a post with some substance. Bernice has been keeping us busy--and eating up money we really can't spare--with trips to the vet. She has been getting various tests and will soon have an echocardiogram to check out a heart murmur. After that, she'll be having a lump removed from her chest. All of this is costing a fortune, but we have to take care of our girl.

Jeff paid a visit this weekend. Yesterday, I did some grilling, and Marc made other tasty things to go with the food I grilled. We also drank more than our livers really needed and hung out in front of the fireplace.

Today was a relatively unproductive day. Jeff went back to Manhattan. Marc made a fabulous pecan-crusted chicken for dinner. Right now, we're watching Amazing Race. This inevitably leads to a reference to one of the dogs on the floor in front of me as the Amazing Moose (Moose being Mandy's chief nickname). This then leads to the song Amazing Moose. Since you don't live in the insanity of our world, I'll share the lyrics...

Amazing Moose, How Sweet the hound
Who plays with Dodger Lee
She's mostly black
But also brown
And goes outside to pee.

Yes, that's the kind of silliness that comes with life in this house. :)

Okay, time to go back to goofing off.

Hm. get me a men's choir and I can write a four-part harmonic arrangment, with discant. Can't you just hear it...

She is a pretty sweet hound. Wasn't aware that Dodger had a middle name, but Lee fits him perfectly.

Jess said...

Ouiser: I'd love to hear that!

Patrick: Yes, she is, isn't she? And yes, Dodger has many names, but one of his chief names is "Dodger Lee Dog."

There are lots of made up songs around here too... :D
