Why don’t he write? And other questions answered.

San Fernando Valley Sunset over the Sepulveda Basin

Apologies again to my loyal readers! Sorry, we’ve been busy. Haven’t written a new blog since mid-July and it’s August 6th already. Real life has intervened in our internet fantasy.

First, the bills from June’s midnight Emergency Room visit are coming in and they’re BIG BILLS! Even with good insurance, the 8 hours in the hospital is running about $400 per hour right now…. and all I did was lay there. (And we didn’t even get kissed along with the screwing) I’m not a charity case, but we might have to start a “GoFundMe” page!

Second, it’s summertime in Los Angeles and we have to care for 3 dogs. And it’s been really hot, so the little beasties are inside most of the day and we are responsible for keeping them safe, happy and entertained. It takes a lot of time and is very distracting from important things we have to do, including writing new stuff for the Blog.

Working Man Blues – Merle Haggard

It’s a big job just gettin’ by with nine kids and a wife
I been a workin’ man dang near all my life
I’ll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I’ll drink my beer in a tavern,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

I keep my nose on the grindstone, I work hard every day
Might get a little tired on the weekend, after I draw my pay
But I’ll go back workin, come Monday morning I’m right back with the crew
I’ll drink a little beer that evening,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain’t never been on welfare, that’s one place I won’t be
Cause I’ll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer that evening
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Sometimes I think about leaving, do a little bummin around
I wanna throw my bills out the window catch a train to another town
But I go back working I gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes
Yeah drink a little beer that evening,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues

Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain’t never been on welfare, that’s one place I won’t be
Cause I’ll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer that evening
Sing a little bit of these working man blues
Yeah drink a little beer that evening,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues

#WineWednesday! “We Be Chillin’!”

What happened to March? Tempus fugit (Time flies…)
What happened to TODAY? How is it 11am and I haven’t done anything?

I woke up with a headache.
Actually one of the puppies woke me up to tell me it was time for breakfast.
I had a morning cup of espresso and a glass of orange juice (not from concentrate).
My head still hurts.

The television is on, but the volume is off <MUTE>.
The puppies are sleeping. One is under my desk, the other is laying in the pen.
NOTE: I took their pictures and this is almost “real time”:

It’s also “Gardener Wednesday”, so there will be leaf blowers and lawn mowers.
Construction continues next door. They will never be done.
Right now I’m sitting here in silence.

I haven’t eaten anything yet today.
Last night I made spaghetti with meat sauce, a salad and garlic bread:

I’m thinking pan-fried leftover spaghetti with meat sauce for brunch. Be right back.

Almost “real-time” Pan-fried Leftover Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Spaghetti and an iced espresso and an aspirin for brunch.
It’s currently 80 degrees outside in the San Fernando Valley.
And the time is 11:49am Pacific Standard Time.
Now a word from our SPONSOR:

Your-Name-Here

YOUR NAME HERE! SPONSOR JOSHWILLTRAVEL! Contact Us!

So we cooked and ate the spaghetti, drank the iced espresso and took the aspirin.

And the puppies went outside and so I did too.
And it’s getting warmer. And I still have a headache.

On Sunday we went out to the Paramount Ranch in Agoura, California for the annual Renaissance Faire Reunion and it was a beautiful day!

Sunday in the Park – Paramount Ranch in Agoura, California

We uploaded about 200 new pics of people and places from the past and from our Sunday adventure. Everything was very green! It was cloudy and then clear, so there are a lot of great pics from the gathering. Here are just three (and the one above) for now:

MORE TO COME…..maybe. (The time is now 12:45pm)

“The Dude and Trump have a lot in common…
both have bathrobes, both obsessed with their rugs, and they both love White Russians”
– Seth Meyers 3-28-17

And we’re back! 5pm:
I crashed about 1pm, slept for about 3 hours and then woke up, and still had a headache, but it wasn’t as bad. It’s beautiful and very bright outside today. Windy and warm! I know this because  were just there with the puppies…outside that is.

So we are up and we have an iced espresso, and the dogs have been outside, and they are now laying down again waiting for their suppertime.

p.s. Your internet history was just sold by the Republicans in Congress!
You have NO PRIVACY!
The Republicans in Congress are in the pockets of BIG CORPORATIONS and have put CORPORATE PROFITS over their sworn duty to provide PUBLIC PROTECTION AND PRIVACY!
Your ISP Provider can now sell your info to anyone without your permission!
(the new FCC regulations the Republican Congress just removed
would have required consumer consent and permission)

And don’t worry about that stuff about the Russians….
probably nothing, just “fake news”.

Saturday Morning…

Saturday Morning…

Welcome! Good Morning! It’s Saturday! 
Okay, let’s Live Blog about the day.

7:20am
So, the dogs are all fed and snacked.
They went outside before and after.
They watched me make, eat and drink my breakfast and a double espresso
And now the puppies are playing tug-o-war with a towel on the rug
and the Big Boy is laying on the bed in my office while I’m writing this Blog.

Breakfast: 2 English muffins with chunky peanut butter and red raspberry jam, sweet red grapes, a ripe yellow banana, a small glass of “not from concentrate” orange juice and a warm double espresso with non-dairy creamer.

16387042_1676373965722496_7921359160003658722_n

7:20am Watching the Banana.

“M*A*S*H” (the TV series) is on Sundance Channel on my big screen television.
One more time outside with the played-out puppies and now the dogs are down for their morning nap. The “Little Bandit” is asleep in my lap and it’s just 7:45am

Avocado!

8:20am
So, the workmen are here now.
They have been replacing the tile on my patio and doing some other work here at the house. What should have been a 3-day job is taking 2 weeks. They didn’t have enough tile when they started the job, which I pointed out to “the boss” before they started. It was easy to see that 6 boxes of 6 tiles each (36 tiles) wasn’t going to cover the top of the patio, the steps and the sides which already used 40+ same sized tiles. Then they had to stop because it rained, not once but three times, and so they’re here on Saturday morning to saw tiles and finish the patio work at last.

Warning: Construction Zone!

Good Watchdogs!

The dogs have been moved to the bedroom because they were barking.
NOTE: “M*A*S*H” (the TV series) is still funny,
and it is so much better than anything currently on network television!

9:10am
The dogs are back in the office because they were barking.
“Airplane! The Movie” has come on Sundance Channel.

Ted Stryker:
“That’s Lieutenant Hurwitz, severe shell shock, thinks he’s Ethel Merman.”

16473763_1676504105709482_7496469841413372973_n

Lt. Hurwitz: “You’ll be good! You’ll be great! Gonna have the whole world on your plate! Everything’s Comin’ Up Roses….”

Ted Stryker:
“War is Hell.”

And now the dogs (and me) are down again for their morning nap.
I didn’t stay down for long…. and neither did they.

And a little more “Airplane! the Movie”:

Sing Along! “There is only one people, we are one and the same…”

10:00am
Another espresso (and I ate a piece of cold fried chicken, a leg, while making it):

16508871_1676535675706325_1860789417337404958_n

Warm Espresso (with milk)

Getting hungry… the dogs are sleeping. “Let sleeping dogs lie.”

Sawing stone tiles, looking out my backdoor.
Hammering and drilling, working in the living room.
(Do I have a headache?) Why does Sundance Channel have commercials?
silence…

10:30am
Time to go into the kitchen and take the puppies outside again.
Birds of Prey! 4 Hawks circling overhead… with blue skies and clouds.

No, these are hawks not turkey vultures!
They’ve been hunting in the neighborhood for a couple months.
They like to perch in the tall trees and watch for small critters.

So, okay, maybe not. Back into the kitchen. Time to cook.

and Pete Seeger RIP is rolling over in his grave!

UPDATE Saturday 3:15pm
It’s still too wet to finish the tile work. So it’s cut and measured
and they say they’ll finish after the next few storms pass through.
Probably “2 more weeks”…. but the hammering just won’t stop.

Pretty girls!

They went to the pet groomer and got shaved and washed on Thursday.

Puppy Update! End of January 2017

Puppy Update! End of January 2017

The puppies have grown and have a great life! They get constant love and attention. The Big Boy has accepted them as family and has come to tolerate their antics (to a point).

The little girls had their “Lady Parts” surgery and have fully recovered! There was a little bit of worry about the psychological trauma but everyone is better now. Their behavior is back to normal and they went and had a checkup yesterday at the clinic and all is well.

Little Pink Bellies – August 29, 2016

img_7815

Winter weather here in Los Angeles and it has been very cold, so we’ve gotten the puppies a selection of warm sweaters, fleece coats and “Thundershirt” wraps. They have complete run of our office and the kitchen, and enjoy sleeping on the bed, on their dog bed and on the big pillow in the dog pen. They learned very fast how to jump out of the pen, so it’s always open, they come and go as they please and we use it as a play area and as a place to keep all their toys, bones and chew rags.

They’ve been doing work on the backyard and there have been some big changes to the house in the last few months. We took out all of the lawn and roses and landscaped with brick patio and rock. It looks really good, reduces watering to once a week and helps to conserve water (and lower the DWP bill). They love to run around the big backyard and we built a beautiful covered dog run to provide them with a safe outdoor space to play.

The New Covered Dog Run in the Backyard

Both are very smart, they are learning and responding well to training. They’re spoiled and still prefer to be indoors. They love being with people and always want to be part of the action. Bandit hasn’t loss her edge: she will go through any open door, stick her nose into and try to eat everything unless she’s corrected. She’ll find any small piece of plastic, paper scraps, wood or sticks, leaves, etc. and try to chew and/or eat them. And she’s really cute which makes all of it adorable.

The Bear seems almost twice as big as little Bandit now, but they play and wrestle like they’re the same size. Bandit is still pretty small and she fits perfectly in my lap and Bear has grown too big to be a lap dog. And both are still growing more everyday!

The puppies are doing well, very well. They are very happy and well adjusted. We are working on housebreaking them without “crate training”, which is going well but takes longer. They are learning fast and respond well to the command words, even the stubborn one. Both are very smart and sensitive and they love to play fight with each other. They are eating hard puppy food and a lot of it. Puppy #2 has almost doubled in size in three weeks! Puppy #1 is still small but she’s gained weight too and is extra fierce when it comes to sparring. They are such lovely little babies.

Friday morning: Finally having my coffee…puppy #1 had her booster shot yesterday and woke up today in pain, so we went back to the vet this morning for an emergency visit. She’s fine, just pain from the injection, so they gave her another shot, an anti-inflammatory, and now she’s home resting comfortably.
