I was so confused when I saw this cutie's face in my reader. I thought this was Boom Boom's post. Henry is such a sweet boy and Paula has great knees.

Their visit was a very calming experience...well, except for the axe.
Cheryl said…
Yes, the axe would kinda harsh my mellow too.
Danielle Batog said…
Gotta love a face like that.. no question.
nonamedufus said…
I never actually saw it. She might have been fibbing.
nonamedufus said…
Absolutely. He was so well behaved.
Pat Kumicich said…
No one could remain angry, edgy or uncomfortable with a little guy like that around to cuddle.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I think Henry is a very calming influence.
ladyV said…
pets are calming. i have a cat but love to watch my fish swim around.
Cheryl said…
Boom Boom wouldn't fib. I'm sure there was an axe in her car somewhere.
nonamedufus said…
I'll bet your cat likes to watch the fish too.
nonamedufus said…
Well, I'm sure there was an ax-le.
Cheryl said…
This is tiring, isn't it?
Ziva said…
Awww! Dogs are incredibly calming. Sadly, I only have cats, and they're likely to kill you in your sleep. Never a calm moment.
nonamedufus said…
We have a cat. I hate our cat. That's why I posted a pic of Boom Boom's dog.
Paula Wooters said…
Hahahahaha! Sadly, he's not as calm this morning... he's trying to help me write this by pawing at the keyboard.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, that must be ruff on you.
Laughing Mom said…
Awwwww! No bone to pick with you today!
Jamie Baker said…
I read something recently about pets having a myriad of benefits in people's lives. I'd say you are in good shape, Noname.
Paula Wooters said…
Let me just set the record straight... the axe was in the car!!!! Do I have to actually bring it out next time to keep you in line?
stoneskin said…
I've missed you buddy. I even tried to comment before disqus managed to load, for old times sake, but I know how much you hate that and didn't want to spoil the calm.

That dog aint calm though, I can FEEL the latent energy. The illusion of calm before the storm.
Paula Wooters said…
Ziva... seriously? Didn't you notice my picture from Day 11? That dog HAS tried to kill me in my sleep... by insisting on sleeping on my face.
Paula Wooters said…
Ruff! Ruff!
Kevin said…
I love dogs. :) Great picture too!
mike said…
Cute pooch. Dogs are very calming, as long as they're not licking me.
nonamedufus said…
We don't have a dog. And the cat goes in the basement at night.
nonamedufus said…
He's a guy, right, not a grrrrr-l dog.
nonamedufus said…
I got nothin' to come back with. For a minute there I really had to paws.
nonamedufus said…
He's the cutuest dog I've ever seen. But he's Paula's.
nonamedufus said…
I'd be in better shape if I owned that dog.
nonamedufus said…
Mo, how have you been buddy? long time, no blog. Well you'll have to talk to Paula. He was only visiting when I took his picture and he was the poster dog for well behaved.
nonamedufus said…
Me too, but he was only on loan.
nonamedufus said…
So now that you've lost your cat are you gonna get a dog, Mike?
nonamedufus said…
No, no, that's fine. I'll take your word for it.
MikeWJ said…
That's a pretty leggy pup you've got there. Nice.
MalisaHargrove said…
Henry is too adorable! But that cute pup can't fool me. There is nothing calming about Henry unless he's asleep!

Oh my goodness. I cannot handle the cuteness.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
