dog, gum, ken

photo of the day: sunday, november 18th:

bailey!! posing a dog is as challenging as posing children!

debbie, bailey and i enjoyed a fantastic walk n talk this aft around our favourite old westmount neighbourhood. some houses have their christmas decs out…and some homeowners are raking up leaves, still. one bungalow was – poof! – gone! obviously a rebuild is going to occur on that lot. the weather was awesome: crisp, sunny, beautiful cloud formations in the sky. the setting, the time with my friend, the weather…all good for the soul.


update on gum chewing day, eight days later

prior to last saturday, i had been a little fearful that after a full day of chomping, bubbling, and slurping my twenty-eight pieces of gum, i would crave gum every day thereafter. not the case! not once this week have i thought, “man, i sure could use a stick of gum right about now.” that is a very good thing! i think the ten month break cured me of my addiction. we’ll find out if it’s the same story with diet coke…in twenty-one days!


my friend ken successfully completed the jfk 50 miler yesterday! he finished in just over eleven hours, which is right around his target, if i remember correctly. i am going to make every effort to set up a coffee outing with ken – i want the full play-by-play, mile-by-mile account. what an achievement!

hope you had a great weekend, and enjoy your sunday eve. i think dad and i are off to a hockey game!…

    Oh, congrats on the gum cure (at least for now). I’m not sure if I should with you something similar with the diet coke or not…

    Enjoy the game! I go in and out of gum chewing phases. Months can pass and I’ll suddenly need to buy a pack. Once I get through it, more months can pass.
    That’s a great photo of bailey! Adorable!

      i wish i could be a sporadic person with gum like you, zo – but i am either all or nothing! bailey really seemed to enjoy our walk!
