frykitty just posted that ww is owned by the O. is that true? i consider myself a well informed individual especially when it comes to portland, but i wasn't aware of that incestuous relationship. ack! my opinion of ww is falling fast.
hey, woke up this morning and you weren't there. i miss you. the pups miss you. hope your having fun and relaxing. love you.
gave away dog food yesterday. my sis and her brood showed up for a surprise lunch. i always love seeing these kids - jack and henry. jack is 3 and henry is 2. henry greeted me with a screaming crying face. oh, what fun... i just smiled and picked him up and walked around to quiet him. it works. i don't normally know this stuff being child free and all, but when henry visited as a baby, he just wouldn't stop crying. i picked him up and began walking around our house one evening and he calmed down a little. to really put him at ease, i began singing to him. first it was pearl jam's "Elderly woman behind the counter in a small town" and then it was a christmas song and then itsy bitzy spider and then . . . well you get the point. since i was standing in front of my building downtown, i chose not to begin singing to my nephew. maybe i was a little embarassed or shy or whatever. i'm ok getting up in front of unknown crowds @ bars, but i guess not in front of some of my coworkers.
so, back to the dog food. i came upon a small group of kids with a cute dog and offered a couple bags of food. the woman was so excited i think she wanted to hug me. initially, i was nervous because they appeared a bit rough and aggressive, but after she saw the food, all the tension melted away. it was when i was crossing the street that i thought - i have more than enough of these samples - i should have given her all of them to share with other doggy friend. i also thought to tell them that if they have other doggy friends to maybe have a place in downtown where i walk by at a specific time and hand out food. hmmm. i'll have to think about that one a little.
