Yeah, buddy, just ask me to do one more thing...

I dare ya'.

Whew! I am overloaded at work. In fact, I probably shouldn't be taking time to type this little post, especially since I don't think I have time to eat lunch away from my desk. But, I can't help but post a little something, even if it's just a shout out of HELLO! from Texas, where it's hotter than a firecracker.

Yesterday I was on a call with a lady from Cleveland and a lady from Colorado and they both wanted to know if the stars really shine big and bright deep in the heart of Texas and I was able to proudly say, YES! This morning, when Sydney and I were walking, I told her about that and we talked about how bright it was outside, even though there was no moon. The star shine was enough to illuminate our path. We walked past this one house where the dogs always run right up to the end of the driveway, where there must be one of those electric shock fences because the dogs never go any further than the cattle gap at the road. Today, I was in a smart mood and stuck my thumbs in my ears and made "moose horns" and stuck my tongue out at the dogs and said Na-ahhhhhh. Oh, what a morning to do that. They guy that lives there was in the yard, hidden in the dark and I heard him crack up laughing. Guess it's a good thing he had a sense of humor.

Okay, gotta go. Hope you're all having wonderful Thursdays. I keep chanting, I will not work this weekend, I will not work this weekend, I will not... Lane

I remember those nice nightime walks, but I was nervous about dogs also. Take care you two.

It must be so beautiful to have all those stars! I was commenting last night to my husband how dark it was out there with no moon. Sorry you're so bogged down at work. So is my daughter.. to the point that she wants to change careers. But without a job to support her she can't just quit and go to school for two years. Maybe kids these days should go to college and get a bunch of different diplomas before they leave home so when they find they hate one job they can switch.

hahaha! Love the interaction with the dogs!! Gave me a giggle for the day. Take a deep breath and try to relax in the midst of the furor.

So amused that your antics were observed by the dogs' owner!
