Good News, Bad News, Bad News

 First The good news. My daddy won “favorite Italian Car” in the Hemmings car show up in Saratoga earlier this summer and there is a picture and a mention in the latest issue of “Hemming Sports & Exotics” magazine, wooohooo.

…but it is short lived….

1stBadNews:                                                                                                                       While driving up near Canaan Ct. today he bottomed out (the car bottomed out, his bottom is ok) at a dip in the road and he smashed the bottom of the car. He thinks he cracked the oil pan, cause after pulling over it started leaking out …a lot. So for tonight his prized love is sitting all alone out in the cold in a foriegn land 100 miles from home.

2nd Bad News:                                                                                                                          I was running yesterday whith joy and exuberance like a crazy dog because I was SO happy when my mom came home and I slipped and fell. I hurt my toe! Really, mom and dad are very concerned because I keep licking at it. If they try to touch it I pull away and then lick at it some more. I don’t think I broke anything because I still walk fine, but it hurts. (btw, joy and exuberance are all ok)

So it has been a so so weekend and I haven’t even checked who won Football, (hopefully Cowboys and the Lions) or Formula 1, (Hopefully Alonso and Ferarri)!

Life Lesson: You have to take the good with the bad…and the bad with the good.

Extended Family

My dad wanted to show me pictures of my extended English family. My mom said’ “Yawn” I ran for my rawhide and my dad looked at these photos by himself.

He kept going on and on that they are all British, like my ancestors. He said he saw some at Hemmings Sports & Exotic auto show and some at Lime rock race track, blah, blah, blah, snore, snore. I don’t see how they are related. None of them have floppy ears, big teeth, a cold wet nose, no tail, no fur, no nuthin’!

I think my dad is nuts……………..but he feeds me so I guess that he is OK in my book. Be as nuts as you want as long as you feed me and are nice.

Life Lesson: Sometimes your relatives don’t look like you and sometimes they are nuts, but as long as they are nice they are perfect.
