one definition of Bob:  

Odds 'n' Sods 

Laika peek-a-boo
Laika was my wife's first dog. Like our other dog, Boston, he was a rescued Greyhound. Although he had a wonderful disposition, he never quite got the hang of living in a house, so we had to return him to the placement agency. Happy ending; they found a suitable home for him.

Awwww, it's a picture of the babies. Actually, I never called them "the babies"

I think they were four and two when this picture was taken.

I made a "Wanted" poster from this picture and put it on the refrigerator. It sought a reward for "Hallway Sneaker" Seneca, as well as "I'm Not Tired" Blake.

Guess you had to be there.

Seneca and Blake, the early years
homebrew beer label
A while ago, a friend got me interested in homebrewing beer. It's surprisingly easy to make a beer that has more taste than Coors. I found that I liked making big, dark beers like Porters and Stouts. I was also involved with target shooting (but not while drinking), and that provided the inspiration for my Straight Shooter Stout label. "As black as a bulls-eye with a 10-X taste"
I was driving down Rt 309 when I passed "Adult World". The changable sign under their store sign usually advertises DVDs for sale, or that sort of thing. I did a double take when I saw this one. Fortunately, I had my digital camera with me. Triple-X Action Figures? I guess they're very heavily... "muscled".
strange doesn't start to describe it

Our late cat Issy. She's a Cornish Rex, and at one time we had three cats, all Rexes. Yes, I know, she has huge ears. When our neighbor first saw her, she thought we had a pet rabbit. Or so she claims.

But their fur is as soft as a rabbit. Rexes are quite affectionate cats, and love to curl up on your lap and sleep. They also retain many playful kitten-like qualities long into adulthood. Some of them play fetch.
And you do get used to the way they look.
