A long-running personal blog shared by two authors with completely different approaches to life. And a lot of large, beautiful photographs of dogs and nature and places we've traveled to. Rich in commentary and irreverant in style. 


We started blogging a long time ago. Our work hours never aligned with recommended psychotherapists and we needed to get our thoughts out. We are great friends, total opposites and long-time housemates. This was a way to communicate. With each other. With strangers. With consumer marketers. With sub-par meteorologists. With distant friends who wanted to see pictures of stuff we were up to.

This is the place. Our bucket of thoughts to share. You are welcome. 
(We realize that most of you are here for the dog pictures.)




At about 9:20 am today I realized that this day was going to suck eggs. Suffice to say that I was in the presence of an oral surgeon and a currently un-appreciated dental hygienist. And some things in the very recent past had gone very (very) wrong.

But there is no rewind button on reality. And I have a armory of pain drugs that would later hold me in their staticy embrace for the afternoon.

.... okay before all of that ... I was attempting to pass some time before my scheduled appointment. I had 20 minutes to kill. So I drove out to the Maryland nederlands.  It was a beautiful, cold, wet, fall morning and I had a camera in my handbag.

So after almost driving into a swamp (long short story) I was driving past this house and I was just absolutely CHARMED by the scene. The house was a milion shades of economic restoration and depreciation.. and it had this amazingly cheery wreath on the door. I fell in love.
