Five, count 'em, five days without spending any cash. I was torn when I found out the golf attire I have been eyeing has gone on sale, but I hung strong.


Today should be another busy one at work, but at least it's Friday; maybe I'll bring Elvis Costello's My Aim is True cd to power me through . . .


My dogs both like to rub on different sorts of things when we are out walking. Luckily, neither prefers poo or dead things. Samantha likes to roll all over worms, (there are usually a few out on the sidewalk with the morning dew) which are surprisingly lacking in smell. Hanna likes to rub against bushes and shrubs that are sticky and smelly.


Sergio Garcia is leading the British Open, but has zero chance of being at the top of the leaderboard Sunday afternoon.


More than 100,000 people emailed the NFL demanding the suspension of Michael Vick. Nike hasn't (yet?) dropped Vick, but at least it has delayed the release of his latest branded shoes and pulled his videos from its website. To urge Nike to drop Vick, click here.
Images from my deck . . . flowers, and a relaxed canine.

Nice photos! Glad to hear you've made it five days without spending cash!

BTW, I just signed a new petition - this time to Nike - demanding that they drop Vick.

Nice pics.

Have you ever heard of the Madden Curse? It's happened to several NFL players who have been on the cover of Madden's video game, and then by coincidence suffer career ending injuries. Wasn't Vick on last year's?

Relaxed Canine opened for last year's summer rock festival. They were a real sleeper.

karen - very true!

I wish my front area was as cozy as yours. Wanna come fix it up for me?

Congrats on not spending any money yet. But I must point out - do you really play golf enough to equal the amount of golfing attire you have bought/plan to buy?

Dan - you must be a KROQ listener. Your band names are as funny as theirs.
