brief visit in Slabtown by ecoman… Heartened to hear that Virginia republicans do not support the President’s proposed cuts to the Chesapeake Bay project.


dogs at play
rough and noisy; noisily jolly or rowdy; clamorous; unrestrained:
Carl, Helen and Ermine visited last night. Tilly had nine brothers, no sisters. They taught her ferocious display? Tilly shows off for visitors. (two seconds later Tilly was flat on her back)


administering a little shock
An electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles when they’re at rest and when they’re being used. Nerve conduction studies measure how well and how fast the nerves can send electrical signals.Once upon a time I worked in health care. Tests like these are hard for those who administer them. People get into health care to make people feel better. So studies that are unpleasant for the patient are not much fun to administer. In this case the test involves (from the patient’s point of view) electrodes and needles. The docs were kind, efficient, didn’t hurt for long. The idea of it hurt.

It is fun being an American dog

three dogs
Tilly tumped over Ansel and Rio’s all day water bowl, then the three of them dug a hole in the wet place and reveled. When was the last time I had that much fun? Been awhile.


dog in sunlight
Tilly has received good cat instruction, she doesn’t see cats as prey. How do I inoculate the Till-monsa so she doesn’t chase birds? Suggestions please!
