Is My Dog Trying to Tell Me Something?

While organizing my photos from my weekend in the Netherlands, I came across these photos.

While the girls watched TV, Tucker took advantage of the lull and grabbed forty winks in the girls' kid size armchair.

I'm starting to think that perhaps it is time to buy my dog a new dog bed???

Another Would Be Dog Bed

I went to dinner at a friend's house and as usual, brought Tucker along. This time I brought his bed along to give him something besides the tile and hardwood floors to lie on.

Tucker decided he liked the look of the bean bag chair instead. Notice his dog bed is sitting nicely just behind him???

I have to say, big kudos for Neil for not minding some dog hair in one of his comfy chairs...... I still have to finish Rome and the Netherlands. More soon!

Home for the Holidays

Sorry for the lack of posts but I really enjoyed my time in the States with my family. Even though I did not win the family bowling tournament this year (which is why there are no photos - I am still slightly bitter), we had a great time being together.

Since I had such a great time with the Hiscott family last year, I tried to bring a bit of that back with me this year. Therefore, I smuggled in some Christmas crackers to have a 'British Christmas' one night. You have to understand, the concept of the Christmas cracker does not exist in the US. Therefore, we had fun with the hats and Tara was the champion at the jokes.

We also took a Hart family photo. We haven't had a good one since Bob and Tara's wedding and with Tague along thought it should be time for an update. Next time, someone needs to tell my dad not to wear his Stevie Wonder glasses. (PS - notice the sunshine and venue. Oh yes my British friends, the weather was lovely :o) )

Isn't California Known for Fresh Food?

Since I just came back from California, which is generally known to have very fresh food as it is one of the produce captials of the world, I thought you would find this funny. I saw this BusinessWeek advertisement in the tube station. It vindicates my American food preferences! See my earlier blog post here.

For those how have shopped at UK and US grocery stores or know about the challenges Tesco faces with expansion in California, you gotta love this ad.
