Hey Everybody!

H-H-H-Hey Everybody!!!

I figured I better write something before all two of you that read my blog forget about me (if you haven't already).

A lot has happened since my last post, new job, the dog has doubled in size, the beerfest came through town, went on a baby crawl....

Baby crawl? What the hell is that?!?

Well it all started when two of my friends that shall remain nameless (one is pictured...) decided to have 'couples' baby showers, which are just an excuse to for people with kids to make fun of guys that don't (read: me) to make them feel better about what they got themselves into. :-)

Cooler heads came together and we realized, rather than having beers and laughing at the guy that doesn't know how to secure a linen diaper to a teddy bear, (again, me) our time would be better spent having beers and then having more beers. It is a good time! In six tries we have come up with some good stories that will live on for quite awhile. Unfortunately, I can't share any with you here. Let's just say, that now body has been harmed (almost nobody) and nothing has been done that will break up a marriage...

That's all I got to say about that!

On to the dog. We heard from Clyde's breeders that pretty much all the dogs except one, not including Clyde, are swimming. Other than playing in a kiddie pool, which he loves, Clyde has never been in a body of water bigger than his water dish. So we went to the lake to see how he would take to it.

Clyde likes the water only slightly less than fish....

He marched into the water with absolutely no hesitation. I didn't have to do a thing. We tossed his bumper gradually farther and farther out, not too far as I'd have to get it if he gave up, but he got it every time. The other cool thing that happened is that 'retrieving' finally seemed to click for him. We have been trying for weeks in the backyard, but there is too much to sidetrack. Sticks, leaves, shrubs, dogs barking, blades of grass, the retaining wall, etc, etc, etc. We were lucky to get him to bring something back half the time. Not so in the lake. I tossed his bumper out and he would tear after it, bounding over the waves, grabbing it, and heading back for me. Hopefully we will get a hot weekend soon and I'll wear the speedo and throw the thing out farther. Hopefully we'll get some pictures.

O.K. I'm back now, though you probably didn't know I was away. In the last 10 minutes, the dog got too rambunctious, put a hole in Carries new pants and arm (she's had the arm for awhile), I intervened and got clawed under the eye and nose. My nose is bleeding slightly and I just noticed that so is my knuckle... Ahhh, the joys of a Labrador puppy. Anybody want one? We start obedience training in two weeks or so and it can't come soon enough. No worries, he isn't like this all the time, it is just about 30 minutes a night where he gets super-amped up. Much like a kid that has had way too much cotton candy.


Except Clyde has pointy fangs and claws.

Anyhoo, I have lost my track of thought now so I guess that I'll shut 'er down.

It's about time you update your blog!!!!!!!!!! It's been pretty lame!! :) Tell Carrie and the pup I said Hi, any new wedding news?? Parties?? Etc?? I might have to quit my job to be there but I'll do whatever it takes. Being a teacher really sucks! Whose going to the hawks game, is it going to be pricey???

Whoa now - I refuse to be blamed for coming up with 'couples showers' - I had never heard of one until I met Todd! I can blame Todd (& his wife Amy) because he'll never read this!

I have no problem with the pic of you and I Mikey - since I know many beers were consumed prior. Now had we been sober, well, that's different :)

Still, Steve bringing his camera out to take pictures of us weirds me out. Guys don't take pictures of guys....

Jeff... I remember one was at your house. That makes you partially responsible!

What do you mean? I WAS sober...
