Busy, Busy, Busy

I'd like to convince you I've been busy as a

reading, and I have been reading. In fact, I'm half way through the second of three different versions of the Tao Teh Ching I'm currently reading and preparing to compare.

However, I spent most of the day babysitting Lael, and was delighted to discover that she has taken up

aerobics. Skye seemed less impressed, however, and even somewhat miffed that she still hasn't

learned how to throw a ball. Despite dropping the ball right in front of her twice, Lael seemed unwilling to pick up that slimy ball and throw it.

Maybe it'll rain tomorrow and I can finish the second and third volume and start posting some comparisons by Friday. Personally, I've found comparing the three works both illuminating and fascinating.

  1. There’s that Cute Baby again. And this time he’s brung his dawg. Dawgs are good, most of the time. Is that an Australian Shepherd? I’ve seen that color mix in a lot of them. I once had an Australian shepherd, though he was a much darker mix of colors.

    I have a sentimental story about him at http://users4.ev1.net/~ratsouthern/SE008.html, but you can just look at the pictures.

  2. Yep, that’s my obssessive Australian Shepherd, fixated on his ball, though he’s equally fixated on “protecting” anyone who he considers part of “his pack” from any vicious dog who appears within eyesight.

    He’s so “protective” that he’s nipped me twice when I tried to keep him away from other dogs. So far, though, he’s best known for nipping my son-in-law’s blue heeler when he tried to greet him at the door and for biting the noses of two huskies who were visiting next door and insisted on sticking their nose through the fence. Now that was true fun trying to get him away from that fence.

    I keep him leashed outside the yard and fenced when home to prevent unnecessary problems. The only time he got outside the fence, he apparently tried to “herd” a small group of kids passing by into our yard, insisting that they really lived here, not up the street where they thought they lived.

    If I live long enough to have another dog, it will be one with a “calmer,” less obsessive attitude towards life. Too bad the mutt can’t read, or I’d make him read the Tao Teh Ching.

    Looks like a fun kid. We just found out that we are adding twins to our three year old. If you’re into babysitting and willing to come to Florida, we might need your help…

    Off-topic: I tried to contact you via e-mail, but the e-mail we have for you at OSP doesn’t seem to work anymore. Would you send me a new address?

What do you think?
