Fun In The Sun

:dogwalker: Gordon enjoyed hiking with 5 Lab/Lab mixes in Chabot today. I think he could tell he was different than the others, but that didn’t stop him from having fun in the sun :) Have a great weekend!

Pretty Cool

:dogwalker: Gordon enjoyed a refreshingly cool hike in Diamond Canyon today. We met a big group of dogs along the way, and Gordon was pretty cool about it.

Splashed Vigorously

:dogwalker: Gordon did great today on his hike in Leona Canyon. He met lots of dogs of all sizes and was nice to every one :) He also splashed vigorously in the creek.

Gordon enjoyed his hike in Chabot today. We took it a bit easy, and he seemed to pace himself appropriately. As we approached the halfway point Gordon stopped and wouldn’t go any further… so we stared at each other for a few minutes and then turned around to go back.

Can U Dig It?

Can U Dig It?

Some more ancient thoughts from the drafts folder. Quite the essay this one.

After going to Comic Con here in San Diego a couple of weekends ago (This was written back in 2008 – ed.) (about which I have some more thoughts later), and after unpacking the boxes of books that were shipped over from London in the big move, I’ve been thinking about comics and all that entails.

Awfully Vocal

:dogwalker: Gordon enjoyed a very mellow sniffy hike on a new trail in Chabot. We didn’t see any other dogs or horses or anything really.

- Vic Reeves, 1989ish

At a recent dinner with Friend Alex and his lovely wife Jess, Alex said he had been working on learning simple woodwork. He showed me a picture of an Adirondack chairhe had made, to which I said that I wanted one – the sit-up plastic chairs we…
