Absolute perfection! Old men say the darndest things.
On Dog Shadow
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”
Sidney Frank went to my high school. When he died, he left several million dollars to the school, which they used to build a new arts wing when I was a senior. Students took to calling it the "Grey Goose wing". Alcohol! Teenagers! Typical.
Funny you should ask! Today is my Boxer's birthday! She is 5. We bought her from a breeder. She had 10 brothers and sisters, all perfect little babies, gently snoozing in a huge box.
Our first Boxer we rescued. He was a victim of neglect and abuse, mostly by his owner's children. His feet were all worn down with sores from being kept chained up on concrete all day. When we adopted him, he was twice the size of me (I was in Kindergarten). He ended up as being the most loyal dog, always watching out for us!
@hahahaha, ja. You have a 50/50 chance of guessing correctly!
@Countess Maritza Boooo!!! I met my boyfriend on OKC! I went on dates with about 7 different guys, and all but one were really nice/interesting/funny! And I've been dating my boyfriend for almost 2 years, so, I can vouch for OKC!
Yes, there were are lot of weirdos on there, but a lot of nice people as well!
You NEED to make Julia Child's Sables (a french sugar cookie)! I couldn't find the recipe online but...MAN are they good. My mom swears by them, and would never in a million years dream of making anything else.
The recipe is in MtAoFC (Mastering the Art of French Cooking) as well as some of her other cook books.
You won't regret it.
My parents called it a "pooh pooh"....thus, watching Madeline say "Pooh Pooh" to things that she didn't care about really scandelized me.
@Trilby I just felt excited when the UPS guy came into my office and asked if we had a first aid kit because he cut his finger. I was like "No...but I have BANDAIDS IN MY PURSE!!!" #I'm a hero or #I'm my mother.
I also feel like a hero when I have tampons and someone needs one! HOORAY.
