Soak it up!!

This here video was the pinnacle of coolness for me back in '85. Why I never grew out my bowl cut and broke out the peroxide I'll never know... Oh yea, I also liked Huey Lewis and the News, that's why.

Just wanted to let you know of my goal for the summer. I am going to walk on my crushed rock path until my feet can handle it. Why? Because I can. :)

New Profile Photo and Rant

In honor of the Seahawks training camp starting up within the month, I decided to change my profile picture. It is a self-portrait of myself in the 'Bronco Barn' in Denver. I wasn't worried for my safety, I had my cousin watching my back in his '55' Bosworth jersey.

My rant has to do with the 4th of July. I hereby declare personal fireworks as an annoyance! What the hell! Seriously people, it is no different than me standing out in front of my house at 7pm with an air horn. Sure I'd find it entertaining, even funny, but other than my friend Jeff, everyone within earshot would be seriously irritated.

My proposal? Personal fireworks would be allowed to be shot off for three hours centered on your local sunset time on the 4th only. For example, here in Seattle, the sun sets at approximately 9pm on the 4th. You could light you money on fire to your hearts content from 7:30 to 10:30. If caught lighting stuff off outside of those time you would be forced to watch Celine Dion perform AC/DC's smash hit "You Shook Me All Night Long" on a loop for 12 hours straight.

Try it, I can't make it through watching it once!


A Boy and His Dog

...and his wife too!


Carrie and I decided to take Clyde to the dog park for the first time today. We planned to go down there to check it out, but keep him on the leash as 'coming' isn't his strong suit yet. We went to the park in Edmonds.

First of all, what a cool place! For me it just a runway short of utopia. You park right by a marina, with all kinds of cool boats to see. There is a railroad track that carries just about everything in and out of Seattle. Two big BNSF trains went by while we were there, one in each direction. You are on the Puget Sound.

We got there and Clyde was on cloud nine. Exciting scents, nice people, and nice dogs everywhere. He didn't know what to do with himself. This was pretty much Clydes first time socializing with dogs that were bigger than him. We met a great dane that was a week younger, but 90 pounds heavier and tall enough that I could sit on it horse style and my feet probably wouldn't touch... Good lord that dog was big!

After we had been there a bit I was more comfortable and took Clyde off the leash as you can see from the picture above. He did great. For the most part he stayed close to me and came when called. We tossed the bumper and did a bit of swimming. (the dog, not me) Good fun, I will be back, sooner than later.

Something I noticed about the dog park was that everyone was very social. Everybody there had one thing in common, their love for dogs, and they were very friendly. I talked with people that if the dogs weren't there we probably wouldn't have even acknowledged each other. Very cool, I'd compare it to a bar where everybody knows your name. A place where you can see everybodies troubles are the same...

Here are a couple videos that we shot...

Clyde likes to swim between my legs for some reason. Listen for Carries "heh" at the beginning.

Here is Clyde retrieving his bumper. As you can see, he is now a card carrying Labrador. Half dog, half otter.

BTW, did you catch the dog dropping a deuce in the picture? I don't know why but I find it funny. I know, juvenile. :) Check the lady looking the other way, she is so trying to pretend that she doesn't know her dog is doing that...
