Now, Which End Does The Diaper Go On?

Wish I'd bought a wood chipper at Costco (via Zandar).

My Dirty-faced Girl

This is clearly about Sadie:

Where did you get such a dirty face,
My darling dirty-faced child?
 
I got it from crawling along in the dirt
And biting two buttons off Jeremy’s shirt.
I got it from chewing the roots of a rose
And digging for clams in the yard with my nose.
I got it from peeking into a dark cave
And painting myself like a Navajo brave.
I got it from playing with coal in the bin
And signing my name in cement with my chin.
I got if from rolling around on the rug
And giving the horrible dog a big hug.
I got it from finding a lost silver mine
And eating sweet blackberries right off the vine.
I got it from ice cream and wrestling and tears
And from having more fun than you’ve had in years.

Shel Silverstein.

Not much point playing classical music on Pandora with all the excited shrieking.


Who knew road work was a spectator sport?


Sam expresses concern that the excavator will crash into our house.


Nah, it's all good.

C'mon, big brother, let's hurry home and get some lunch.


I SAID HUG YOUR SISTER!


Later we went for a walk with Mex, who is recovering from a sneak attack upon his hindquarters by a vicious neighbor dog.


Some of us ran.


Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride.


Using my uncle's old walking stick.

Before Samuel the Boy we had Sam the Cat (Onsamyetsdurak).  He died 6 years ago yesterday--it was a roller coaster week.

PS--The 4 leftmost animals (Kayla, Sam, Vinny, Neppy) are no longer with us.  Mex and Lola soldier on with new companions.

Bright light hurt eyes.


I asked Sam if he wanted to drive or walk to a meeting with his teachers. He chose to run.


Wouldn't want your dress to get snowy!
