Whew...well, suffice to say it's been a brief hiatus here on the blog frontier. I spent the past two days in Philadelphia exploring the arctic northeast. In a short turnaround I got to visit the National American Jewish History Museum, sample the many splendid vendors at Reading Market, and watch the zany, eccentric, inexplicable Mummer's Parade this morning. I also explored University of Pennsylvania and had a wild New Year's Eve celebration in Manayunk, a young hip neighborhood in West Philly.
It was a wonderful trip. And Leroy was a good doggie at Wag More Dogs. I watched him on the Doggie Web Cam a few times but then I get sad and have to turn it off. They said he kicked out the door to his crate, but other than that he played well and ate without a problem. First time for me being away from the pup so yes, I was anxious. He's such a wonderful guy, anyone on the fence of getting a dog I offer you my greatest enthusiasm and endorsement. One of the most rewarding decisions of my life.
In other news, we're off the 'fiscal cliff' so in short, we're all about to die. If the Mayan Apocalypse didn't scare you enough, now we have orange-alien Boehner and lesbian Mitch McConnell running/ruining our nation one day at a time. And Hope-Change part deux doing his part to undo early campaign promises.
But hey, at least you're not in India, or Africa.
Do any of you guys have new year resolutions this year? What are they? Did you succeed in last year's?
I think I may share a few of my own in the next day or so....
