Kim & I went to the Journey/Def Leppard concert!

no, i don't have any pictures of the event but WOW DID I HAVE FUN!!! I never had the chance to go to see those guys when they were 'IT' but it was just as fun to see them now! took me back to the 80's in a big way... plenty of people were dressed up, or still wear the same since way back then! crazy people. i didn't see truly big hair or jelly anything, we didn't get any beer spilled on us and we did not leave stoned. yay! i was rather shocked when i pulled up to the event and the area was not packed with cars! further shock ensued when upon entering the arena, i saw LOTS of empty seats! WHAT? This is Journey AND Def Leppard in one night! together! what's going on? oh yeah. time is what is going on. try over 20 years worth of time! i was almost aghast, flabbergasted even but nevertheless enjoyed the concert immensely. no one took their clothes off or got into a fight! it was perfect. i'm surprised that we weren't hoarse the next day though! we sang (shouted) our hearts out! kim and i needed that outing! very therapeutic folks! you oughta try it some time...

kim and dallas have Mario (the Afghan hound) and Charlie (standard poodle) out at the obedience classes tonight so that leaves Mei Mei and I to fend for ourselves. hmm... what is a daddy to do? let's play! hippity hoppity hippity hoppity! sing daddy sing! the local jazz station is pumping out some excellent tunes tonight! let's eat some chili! then daddy is going to read his archery magazine. want some icecream? it's chocolate chip! wait, let me change your diaper first. daddy may not be able to smell what you've done but he sure can read the signs! your quiet demeanor and tear in your eye tells me everything that a daddy needs to know...

aaaaah the fall! i love it! best time of year! only if you live up north that is! my family in Florida? hot and sweaty still. yuck. my friends in Kansas? they don't quite get the change of colors that we do! temps are crazy too. sorry gang! come to Wisconsin and i'll show ya!!!

Dallas is doing great with his football stuff and looking forward to next year! wait. next year? HIGH SCHOOL??? yikes! zoiks! already? unbelievable. mei mei? yup. growing up just as fast! can we feed them a little less, perhaps? what a riot! they are both having a lot of fun during the fall! perhaps next year we can go fishing too! Dallas is itching to go fishing. i want to take the atv on a trail, kim can take a horse. lots of trails to hike on out here! camping too! crystal clear streams! so cool. i just came back an hour or so ago from hiking through the woods and i am exhausted! i love the woods...

right now we are watching Discovery ATLAS - Australia. anyone watching this series? this earth of ours is amazing. anyone up for travelling the globe? mei mei is a little tornado.

dad is doing SO MUCH BETTER! he's out of isolation too! his blood count is improving but he still has more chemo to go through. his arm is healing nicely too. after all of that is over, THEN his cardiologist can do his thing! he still needs to go through a heart cath to see whats up with his coronary arteries! i wish that i could be there for that! go dad! we're all praying for you!

Moroki's Silver Dawn (Mario)

so kim has a new dog... any surprise here? not to those of you who know us! how many dogs do we have now? again? wow. 3 are show dogs though. my farmdog is my personal favorite though! she rocks. We just picked up Mario this past Saturday just past Indianapolis. it took us 8 hours or so to get there! what a trip! Dallas and Mei Mei behaved pretty darned good though, considering the time spent just sitting! traffic through Chicago was the pits! don't take the bypass folks! it's also a toll road with miles and miles of ongoing construction. yuck. we arrived at Morokis kennel around one or two in the afternoon (we left at 0600) and were greeted by a symphony of dog barks, howls and yelps! sounds just like home! what fun! This lady breeds and shows Akita dogs. her dogs are absolutely beautiful. she is now doing Afghan hounds and we purchased one of her first from her first litter. Dallas was a huge help as we were there for two hours talking dogs, signing papers, and just plain milling around getting to know the owner and she, us. driving through was so beautiful! i love the fall with all the brilliant colors! i need to take a walk through one of these forests! i love it! grab a dog or two and go!
the trip back was relatively uneventful and that is a good thing! it took us six hours even though we went through the heart of Chicago. what a view! so awesome! that is a city with some history to it! wow! just prior to hitting the suburbs of Chicago, Mario started to fuss and figet... hmmm... gotta potty? let's find somewhere to stop. NO MARIO! NOT NOW! yep. he pooped in Kim's hand! gooey puppy poop!
