Crofton, MD, 21114

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.)

A Right Turn In Your Perspective

If I never had a dog I never would have:

  • gone for walks in the woods
  • come home after work instead of hitting pointless happy hours
  • exercised in general
  • known bravery
  • met my neighbors
  • met random children and old people everywhere
  • gotten off anti-depressants I didn't need
  • had a bottomless pool of hope
  • thoroughly washed my bathroom top to bottom every month
  • hugged as much
  • interfaced with gas that should have been a weapon
  • shared secrets out loud
  • shared ice cream in secret
  • bought the REALLY expensive bones
  • inspired my friends to get pets
  • had the numerous incredible and ridiculous stories in my life
  • known what an anal gland was
  • known joy in its purest form
  • met the local cobbler
  • known the price of every model steam cleaner for rent in a 30 mile radius
  • known mercy
  • had the guts to 'do the right thing at the right time'
  • had a series of the best friends you could ask for in life and have absolutely NO REGRETS
