Introducing... Snickers!

The Jones family has a dog!

We have had Snickers, a 9-year-old Dachshund, for more than a month now. We adopted him from a family who lives nearby. They didn't feel like they could give him the attention he deserves because they had a new baby.

Snick has fit in well with our family. He's nervous in general, and also a little clingy to me and Evey.

But he loves our family, he likes his new back yard, and he appreciates the walks we try to take him on daily.

The carousel in front of the Antique Mall

Taken a couple weeks ago. Worth the 50 cents, actually.

Evey digs comics

For the past couple days, Evey has been reading and re-reading this comic. She also learned today what a 'cliffhanger' means, as well as the definition of 'pediatrician.'

I also showed her where all my long boxes are. She thought my entire collection was in my spinner rack (pictured behind Evey.) She didn't know about my other 3,000!

Gave her a Justice League Adventures comic this evening... Hope she continues to find interest in these little pieces of American art...

Good lookin' family

I'm fortunate to have such a good looking family. Plus, they're awesome people.

Even Boyd.

Boydee looks like Peter Parker here, doesn't he?

Yard is dialed in!

A collaboration of Adro's green thumb, Ryan Lawncare's applications and my meticulous mowing!

Great job, team! Let's put it to bed for the winter!

The weekend's over, Royals need a W

It was a good weekend here for the Joneses... it went by too fast, but we had fun, and got some stuff done.

The above photo is from Boyd's 3rd birthday party a few weekends ago. I need to post a bunch more, but for now, this one will do.

Game 1 of the World Series was cool, woulda been a lot cooler if it was a close game though. Neuty went with me. Was happy to take a lifelong Royals fan, and more important a great friend, along.

Was in Louisville this week for a few days. A good trip. Heard some really great comments on my magazine. People are paying attention, and that's great.

The dog is doing well. I still need to tell you that story.

But right now World Series Game 5 has me wore out... I'm headed to bed!

Happy 3rd birthday, Boydee!

There is a lot to report from the last few days... Once I get out from under this Golfdom deadline, I will!

In the meantime... Happy 3rd birthday, Boydee!
