Happy Thanksgiving!

This year as always, I'm thankful for the many Boston-area college station djs, with special regard to John Funke. What a cool dj name! He hosts Backwoods every Saturday morning from 10 to noon on 88.1. This station has a niche for everyone. This guy is smart, hysterical, entertaining and plays great stuff! His yelling over the songs and his use of sound effects are perfect. I found this profile about him. Check it out and check out his show along with the other djs at WMBR in Cambridge. They love what they do and I give thanks and praise! A big fat whoooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaahhhhh!

dog buddies

I can't tell you how much I want a dog. It's not the right time to have one, so I get my dog fixes when I can. There are several with whom I have swell relationships. I love how they have their own personalities and give you the most excellent unconditional love! They are so cool
and all they want to do is love, love, love... and eat!


Zealand is a Golden Retriever who loves to chase balls and swim in the ocean which makes him pretty stinky. He's very good about being bathed. It's nearly impossible to get the ball out of his mouth.


Sula is a
Poodle and
is very smart.
When other
dogs approach
her in the dog
park, she can't
be bothered.
It's a riot! Her
hind legs look
like she's wearing
designer jeans
with high heels.
She's Anderson
Cooper's mom.

Nick and Nora

Nick and Nora are brother and sister Airedale Terriers. They're named after the lead characters Nick and Nora Charles from the Thin Man movies from the 1930s and 40s. Nora has to wear rubber booties outside to protect the bottom of her paws which have become very sensitive. Many people coo when they see her because of her purple booties. I don't think they realize why she's wearing them. I sense that they think she's just being a diva. It feels great when a dog charges at you because it knows who you are and wants to shower you with love! Aaah.
