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. I guess he knows his limits, which is a good thing if you ask me. I think he’s sleepy now :)
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.
I’m rather excited…
“…knock us up a chair out of wood,
make it comfortable yet attractive,
so that all the people in the world can have a good sit-down”
- 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…
I guess the cone isn’t working or staying on? There isn’t much else that can keep him from licking his wound, but it does appear to be healing up OK. We hiked in Sibley today and Gordon was really quite well behaved. Big boy Zeus was with us and Gordon didn’t try anything at all. He got to wear 2 new hats in the car too! A big day for Gordon :)
“Who’s the more foolish? The fool, or the fool who follows him?” – Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars
Han thinks Obi-Wan is a fool for heading off into the Death Star to switch off the tractor beam. Obi-Wan says the above. But Han isn’t following Obi-Wan, and even if he was, is Obi-Wan just saying Han is a fool for following him, or is he just spouting a wise-ass platitude like some bloody Jedi? I suspect…
I put the cone on Gordon tight enough that he probably won’t be able to remove it, but not so tight that it chokes him. He’s a little bummed out by the situation :( He had a great time hiking though! We went to Chabot, it was pretty mellow. There were some other groups of dogs along the way including 2 big Shepherds. Gordon was nice though :) I hope you have a happy Independence Day!
