It's the bunny!

Michelle and Banjo and I, yet again, loaded up our little blue VW bug with sleeping bags and a tent and headed off to the "wilderness" for a camping adventure. As it neared sunset on Saturday we decided to go for a little hike. Michelle was peppering me with tidbits about how animals like to hunt at dusk and how Puma's might spring out from behind a tree looking for a tasty meal! I was watching the path closely as we climbed a hill. Just then! I saw it! A HUGE hungry animal! Probably the size of an SUV! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!! I pointed and yelled! It was a MONSTER! And it wanted to eat us!!!!!

...and then the little fella with his tiny cottontail hopped off the path back into the woods.

If i could go back in time and visit my younger self...the one thing I'd tell me is not to over pluck! I'd say, "STOP! Those little hairs over your eyes wont grow back! When you're old you'll have to use an eyebrow pencil and draw on your own expressions!"

The Mighty, Mighty Woodcocks are playing for the championship tonight. Go Woodcocks!! We're supposed to wear our Berkeley Rec softball league t-shirts that we got at the end of last season. But our fearless leader Ben only got them in extra large and XXL. I ended up with an XXL because i got to the pile late. I figured i could just use it as a night gown. I hadn't planned on actually doing any physical activities in it. But what the heck. I'll wear it. Maybe i'll throw on some earrings, a belt and some stockings and look stylish on first base.

If the tent is a rockin'

We went camping this weekend. The campers across the way were...shall we say...a bit amorous toward one another. We know this because Banjo kept sneaking over to watch the tent bounce. Them folks were some happy campers!

the state of the economy

Due to current economic factors the dogs in the neighborhood have had to postpone grooming appointments. Makes for some killer Afros!

Me and the French lady

This morning i took Banjo out for her morning walk and ran into our French neighbor with her little dog Peugeot. Here is our conversation:

Me: "Good morning! Good morning, Peugeot!"
French lady: "Good morning! Good morning, Banjo!
Me: "How is her leg?" (Peugeot has been limping for few weeks.)
French lady: "I don't like to comment."
Me: (blank stare)
French lady: (smiling at me with matching blank stare.)
Me: "Well, her leg seems better."
French lady: "I don't like the commute."
Me: (blank stare)
Me: (completely confused) Ok, bye bye!
French lady: "Bye bye!"

All laced up and no where to go.

Michelle got a couple new pairs of sneakers for us. We're the same shoe size so that's pretty handy! When i opened the box there were two sets of laces. Each a different color. Two sets? Humm...I thought maybe it was a new style. All the kids are doing it? So i wore my new shoes with two sets of laces...at the same time. Tuff to lace them. Kinda floppy and hard to walk. But, hey, i want to be cool man. Don't want to stand out and seem like i don't know whats cool anymore.

Later, Michelle alerted me to the fact that the laces were to choose from. Not to wear at the same time. Bummer man, I'm not fashionable. I'm just a big dork.

Lucky Day!

Michelle said that getting pooped on by a bird is good luck. Well, Halleluja! It's my lucky day!
