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.)

Q: Name 2 Pets You Would Like to Have. (Healey)


Haha ... sigh. Not. That lady is a freak.

Well, those that know me (all three of you) would know that I have always wanted to have a white Runner Duck as a pet. It is part of my 'lottery winning plan'. Of my 'crazy old lady plan.' Potentially part of my '50 year old lady plan', if I can work it. But I see myself with a big dog and a duck named Salvatore. Sal for short. He will run around the house like some senile old Italian man wearing bedroom slippers. Full of attitude, commentary and mischief.  



And there always has to be a dog. If I had to pick one right now (that wasn't a Basset Hound - because no one compares to Hambone and Buford) it would be a Bernese Mountain Dog.

They have Buford's coloring and are the body size of a large Golden or Rottweiler. But they have this nutty spirit. Like Dug from the movie UP. "Hello, my name is Dug. I know a joke! A squirrel walks up to a tree and says, "I forgot to store acorns for the winter and now I am dead." Ha! It is funny because the squirrel gets dead." #loveDug

and then there is this. It's not in my top 2 ... but it is notable. Hell, look at that face.
