Christmas Day

Anne and Colin Tommy and Ryan
Christmas Day always seems like a day that stands still in time. I figured out tonight that it's been 33 years since I've been driving to my mother's house for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
33 Christmas drives from Marshfield to Brockton and back. Really, I feel lucky to have had them.
Glad to have my family and especially glad for the new lives that Tommy's marriage to Anne (2002) brought. Ryan 3 and Colin 18 months. It was all about present overload today and two little boys who are the focal point now. It's a good thing and it was really fun.

My Dog Named Pooh

Since I haven't posted in so long it's now winter time and walking Pooh is a bit less strenuous (fewer people) in terms of gathering up the poo. But, it's still a minefield of risk.
We walked in pitch darkness a few nights ago but as soon as the proper time arrived so did some headlights waaay at the bottom of the street so's they'd be spotlighting us the entire time.
I'm dressed all in black fleece except my Nike shoes which glow in the dark and I carry a flashlight. Sort of invisible but not ;)
Luckily I had plentiful bags and bounties with me and Yes, I did pick it up.
These posts are dedicated to all dog lovers who cope with this several times daily.
Not for the faint of heart!
His name is Morey. There is no love like dog love.
