kitchenaid stand mixer i do a lot of vegan baking and i have been lusting over this thing for years but could never justify spending that amount of money on a mixer. my old mixer was quite poorly designed – the motor turned an empty bowl fine but if i actually put any ingredients in the bowl i then had to physically turn the bowl to get it to move. i think dave got tired of my bitching because under our christmas tree this year was a beautiful new mixer for moi. the older saleswoman tried to...

shortly after we began fostering for the nashville humane society murray came into our house as a foster with his brother, van. he was a bottle feeder as someone had dropped he and his siblings off on the back stoop of the humane society one night when they were about 3-4 weeks old. i think i knew right when we picked them up that i was in trouble – i fell in love with murray at first sight. when it was getting close to the time to return them to the humane society for adoption i...

carly has a new habit which is really putting a crimp in reilley’s red ball chasing as well as resulting in repercussions to my tuckus. carly has always played defense when reilley is chasing balls but she has significantly upped the ante recently in which she now nips at him and goes for his ankles. the other day reilley had had enough and turned around to wallop carly at the exact moment i was trying to curtail her and he ended up making contact with my butt. i didn’t really feel...

pee wee herman. i may get a lot of flak for this week’s things i love but i’m not ashamed to boldly proclaim my love for pee wee. ever since seeing him scotch tape his face on david letterman in the early eighties i’ve been a fan – he just makes me laugh, plain and simple. check out this david letterman appearance from 1984 – the joke is long but to me worth the wait. i’ve got a sizeable pee wee collection, which might allow dave & i to retire were i ever to sell it (i wouldn’t), a few items of...

our workspace is about 50 feet from our house while our office is inside the house, meaning that on any given day dave & i each walk back and forth at least 5-10 times, and never with less than 8 dogs following behind. actually i don’t know why i said following behind – no one follows behind – everyone likes to pretend they know exactly where we’re going and then when they realize they have no idea they stop dead so there’s always a split second where i fall,...
