Happy Post Thanksgiving

We hope that everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. Ours was nice and quiet – went to Ocala and had a delicious dinner there. Overall, we’ve had a nice holiday. And, of course, with the Gators beating FSU the weekend wound down splendidly.

Miriam is out taking Peanut for a walk before the rains come. I’ve got Boxer and Sydney here at the house getting their outside time.

Although, my typing is still limited, I’m able to do it easier and with less pain – and that means more blogging! So, keep checking back – I will get back to regular blogging as soon as I can. And since it is the holiday season, I’ll work extra hard to get this done.

Happy Holidays!

Lap Dog Needs Home

My name is Peanut. I need a new home. My evil step sister attacked me two weeks ago and I can no longer stay here. I’m a very sweet dog. I do have a few quirks – but then, wouldn’t you if you’ve been attacked by a mean bitch? 

I’m a little hyper alert. I have a very strong prey drive and can rid your yard of squirrels. I don’t like cats. I’m not too sure about children. Mainly, I would like to be the only dog – I need time to get over being attacked. 

I also need a yard with a fence I cannot climb. Sometimes, I freak out at strange noises. Turning on a water hose make me nuts and I’ll try to find a way out of the yard. I will escape if you use a pressure washer. 

Despite these issues, I am very loving. I like climbing into Lisa’s lap and laying with her. My ears are very expressive and I can make you smile. I love to sit on the deck and watch the yard. I’m a simple dog who doesn’t ask for much. 

I just need a loving home with pets that are very patient and understand us canines.

Happy Post Election!

Dear readers, I’ve been out of commission the last several days. Had an unfortunate incident that has kept me from writing my blog. It will be awhile before I can blog with regularity again. I may be able to persuade Miriam to step in for me while I rehabilitate.

Needless to say, I’m still thrilled with the election outcome. And I hope to be discussing it more – particularly as Obama forms his cabinet.

Anyway, it’s good to be back and there will be more to come.

Our Election Prayer

Dear God,

We pray that tomorrow, November 4, 2008, we will be delivered from the evil under which we have been living for the past eight years.

We pray for a President who will represent ALL of the people instead of a small minority of right wing religious ideologues and big corporations.

We pray for a President who will govern, not by fear and lies, but by truth and reasoned argument.

We pray for a President who has read the Constitution of the United States and knows that the Executive Branch of the government is not also the Legislative Branch.

We pray for a President who is capable of restoring the rule of law.

We pray for a President who believes that disagreeing with your government is one of the highest forms of patriotism and a cherished free speech right.

We pray for a President who understands and supports the notion that government and religion should be separate.

We pray for a President who believes that competency, not ideology, should be a determining factor in who is appointed to a government position.

We pray for a President who can think critically, believes debate is valuable and is capable of engaging in discussions with thoughtful dialogue.

We pray for a President who will not send this country into thoughtless wars and who believes that the highest honor we can bestow among our military personnel is to TRULY take care of them when they return home.

We pray for a President who believes that pilfering the public treasury for personal or corporate gain is wrong and illegal.

We pray for a President who understands that torture is torture is torture – that torture by any other name is torture.

We pray for a President who knows that a far right Supreme Court is not only a threat to our personal liberties but is also a threat to laws and regulations protecting consumers, workers, the elderly and others.

We pray for a President who knows that we must, once and for all, seriously tackle alternative energy and who knows that “drill, baby, drill” solves none of our problems.

God, there is so much more that we would like to ask of you – but we think you get the idea.

We look forward to Election Day when we will dance in the streets and cry joyful noises unto the world.


Yours truly,

Miriam and Lisa
