the wisdom of Bilbo Baggins

“I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”

Tell it like is Bilbo, you sweet-ass halfling, tell it like it is.


a walk in the white

February 5.  A break in the freeze.  A thaw, if you will.  And we did.  This was the first real walk that Leo and I took in over a month that didn’t end with my carrying him in all of his 30 pound pug glory back to the house.

He was a massive spaz in the very recent snowfall and it was delightful to watch after a trying month of cold weather and a double eye infection that rendered him even more of a dog-blob than usual.

Also delightful was to have the camera in hand again and to grab a few shots of my favorite subject.
