It Just Isn't Right

I'm attending the funeral today for a high school chum's 18-year old daughter. It just isn't right.

I wish there was some way to comfort her parents. More info here.

Smart Dogs

Interesting New York Times article here on a border collie who lives in Spartanburg, S.C., who has the largest vocabulary of any known dog. My dogs were very smart, but more in a smart-alecky way. The late, great Mosby, for example, thought "Come!" meant "Run away as fast as you can!"

Another Poem

Another entry in the occasional series of poetry from the bright-eyed boy. This was written on assignment after spending the day at The Outdoor Lab.


Snakes like to slither
After a while they will wither
Hopefully they won't come hither
They aren't as bad as a chigger

Not Shakespeare, but he does make me smile.
