12 of 12

First thing in the morning, Georgie likes to sit on my lap while I check my email on the computer. Such a little love muffin.

Breakfast of champions - Cheeze whiz on Pumpernickel. The dog is never far when food consumption is happening, but he waits calmly without any annoying behaviour.

Shower, shave and youknowwhat later and it's time to go to work. Serge had dog walking duty while I ran out to catch the bus. It was really hoary in the morning, frost coating all the grasses and cars.

After the bus it was down into the metro to ride the virus transmission vehicle. There were two sneezes (not mine) on the way to work from passengers. Both times followed by muttering and hairy eyeballs directed that way.

Nerdy pic of me at work.

After class, I went over to the farmer's market to pick up some avocados. They have it all shut up now for the winter. During the summer it's open air.

Then back home and crossing over the train tracks. In the bottom right you can see some ice that never melted from overnight because it's in the shadows all day. The sun's angle is really low in the sky right now, even at noon.

Once home, it's time to take Georgie to the doggie park. He had a great time playing but he had 5 runny poos. I think Metamucil is the next tactic.

I am marveling at my flower pots this year. We have had several light freezes and the geraniums just keep on going. I was shocked to see the pansies bloom again last week as well. This has got to be the nicest November I have experienced here. Mild and sunny practically every day.

Serge's birthday season is here. We went out to dinner with his stepmom. Her treat. We all had seafood dishes at Vinnie Gambini's.

Once home, we discover what a good boy Georgie was even though he was alone for several hours. Kisses!

Then, one of the best Survivor tribal councils ever. A delicious end to a fabulous day.

A nice balance of Georgie love and real life. Serge has a birthday season? Nice work if you can get it.

Word ver: bango. It needs to be a word if it isn't.

"...virus transmission vehicle." LOL. It's funny cuz it's true.

Has he had a fecal exam done? You might ask that one be sent to the lab at the veterinary school, since they're more apt to do it correctly than most day practices. Another thing to consider would be putting him on a probiotic supplement to crowd out any "bad" bacteria that might be contributing to the problem (have I suggested that already?). I may spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about poo, but it's all for professional reasons. :-)

LOL "virus transmission vehicle".

Breathing the mega-recirculated air under those jet-engine fans in the metro car, I feel like I'm in the spray radius of a thousand sneezers.

Rox said...

I can't believe you yadda-yadda'd your morning poop. What the...

And Survivor?! OMG I was filled with GLEE! I watched it twice and was just giddy.

Snooze said...

I am coveting the farmer's market.

sageweb said...

Very Cool! Georgie is so cute. Hope his poop gets better!

GayProf said...

Survivor is still on the air?

It does seem like the runny stool might need vet intervention, no?

that's J-O-S-H said...

That 2nd to last pictura is cute central! I lurrrve forcing my cats to stand up on the hind-feet and "kiss" noses wiff me.

You look good in your nerdy teacher pic. And of course I really like the train track shot. It's amazing what the curvature of the earth does to the sunlight. Here in South Carolina the sun is still fairly high, and it's not totally dark until after 5:00 in the evening. The heat gets to me, but I like the hours of sunshine in the winter.

Devo said...

Oh God I love that doggie of yours. I would try the vet too because changing the food too much can do that too. I was jumpin up and down with glee when they blindsided Kelly, it was so awesome!! Happy weekend!

Blobby said...

Birthday SEASON?

Someones in the basement with Droba said...

We too, are having an unbelievably nice November down this way. But after the cold, rainy and all-around miserable October we suffered through, we deserve it!

Jill said...

Thanks for sharing your 12! LOOOOVE Georgie! Is he a Basset Hound? My family had Bassets when I was a kid... Gretta and Seamus.

Great ears on that boy.
:)

Simon said...

is it me or serge's stepmom looks like a filipino lady?

lovesmukiwa said...

My sentiments exactly about Survivor!

I enjoyed your 12 of 12 photos and catching up on your blog reading. It's been a while for me to visit other blogs. Life has been busy with work and now it appears I'm moving again, but back to Alabama which is all for the greater good. Have a good week!! Please give Georgie a hug and an extra dose of peanut butter for me. :)
