Strange Greetings

Other than developing a hideous cold, I had a nice trip to Appleton. The highlight of the trip was the opportunity to see several of my traveling companions from the El Salvador Habitat for Humanity build that we did in October. I hadn't seen most of them since returning a month ago. So, it was odd and appropriate that we were all greeting each other with "Oh my gosh! I didn't recognize you clean!" and "Look at you, so clean!" and "You smell really good." I kind of wondered if this is what dogs say to each other when the a dog they know gets back from groomer. Anyway, it was wonderful to see them and reinforced that the bond we developed on the trip was very real. I'm thinking of leading a trip back to El Salvador next year. Anyone up for it?

My dogs check each other over if I take one to the vet and the other stays home. The one that stayed home sniffs the other as if to say, "You sorry ba@#$%^! I told you that the ride thing never pans out! Why do you think I bark the entire time I am in a vehicle, yo?! Dude - man, watch yerself next time, jeeez..."

Such an interesting prospect. I worry though that I like being clean way too much so I usually just send dirty money (dirty only because it's handled by people, not because I'm a big time crook).

I thought that dogs "sniff each other's ***holes in hopes to find their own"...from a very funny song.

We picked up horrendous colds in Decorah. Right now the thought of even taking out the garbage, let alone going to El Salvador sounds like too much work for my mucus filled head.

Get this - your word verification today is "blog". Usually it's sprticks or something.
