Puppeh Open Thread

What do you mean I have to move, I just had surgery, remember?

Milking her recovery for sure. A week out and she’s doing great from her spay. It was quite hectic here for a while – foster puppy and Scout’s surgery. Luckily, we are all almost back to normal.

For those who may have missed my comment the other day, I did hear from Baby’s forever family and he is doing well, claimed his spot on the couch, loves his new brother dog and is turning into the goofy boy I knew he would.

    I have noticed that the only people in Dem politics that it’s okay to taunt, mock, dismiss, insult, attack, slander, or abuse…

    Are Democrats who voted for a Democrat in the last primary.

    We are just the bad people, the elite who better do what we’re told or else.

    Hooray for a successful rehoming!

    I’m just settling in for an evening of Sunless Skies here, with nature’s perfect killing machine on my lap, and a cup of tea.

    Saw the images you posted earlier! Beautiful kittehs, beautiful mugs.

    Those mugs are great. As soon as I get back from my trip, I have a list of art I’m ordering from her. The print she made of Bixby first, a commission of Jake and then that adorable Raspberry Beret puppy.

    Remember when we had a president? This is beautiful.

    So, it’s Saturday, my favorite day of the week.


    12:30, The Debaters on CBC Radio, today, Movie trailers, good or no? Japan, most advanced society, yes or no? Lot’s and lots of puns, and even a trailer for Jon Lithgow playing Stever Patterson in “The Debaters”, the movie.

    6:30, Laugh out Loud. Good enought that we dredged up an old episode, for an encore.

    If you like language, drunk tanks, kids, snot walrus’s, wolves and arctic hares, give it a listen. Rob Pew by the way.

    It’s been a day of ups & downs. One of my former interns came back to visit me, so I called up my old DP & IT guy and we had a mini company reunion. But before that, one of my other friends texted me to say her father’s organs were shutting down & he was dying. About an hour later, he passed. Funny how your emotions can run the gamut.

    I just love the soulful look in Scout’s eyes. Although, based on the caption, that look might be more “reproachful” than “soulful.”

    A seriously good boy, except when he’s stealing stuff or barking at the sky. Otherwise, a good boy!

    Heh, no naps for that puppy.

    Ours doesn’t usually mind the teevee but watching Westminster last week was no puppy picnic. “Who ARE they and why are they in MY house!”

    R.I.P. Stanley Donen, movie director. From It’s Always Fair Weather, in which postwar anomie meets the burgeoning tv-driven consumer society,
    “Midnight with Madeline” featuring Dolores Gray as the TV star and “Baby, You Knock Me Out” featuring Cyd Charisse as the show producer. Vertigo, indeed.

    That was, ummm… interesting. Probably won’t buy the whole CD, though.

    Personal fave among the films he directed is the lesser known Movie Movie. Good fun and unapologetic kitsch all the way through. Plus some wonderful lines delivered straight-faced in all innocence, such as “That’s the second time today you made me drop my panties” or George C. Scott demanding “Give me a big blue behind.”

    A rousing tune from the flick.

    @jeffreyw: My mug came yesterday. Aside from the beautiful artwork, the mug itself is great. It’s a lot taller and heavier than I expected. If the cat knocks that over it won’t be an accident.

    This New Yorker essay on Feinstein (etc.) is good. Or at least I agree with it.

    Feinstein is, in fact, right: on most questions, a “my way or the highway” attitude doesn’t get you very far. If I’m a lawmaker and I think that the minimum wage should be thirty dollars an hour, and you’re one who thinks that eight dollars is generous, we’ll probably try to pass a law that sets the mark somewhere near fifteen dollars, and then argue about it again after the next election. There would be no point in holding out for what I can’t get. But, in the case of the environment, the opponent is not the Chamber of Commerce. The opponent is physics, and physics doesn’t negotiate. It’s not moved by appeals to centrist moderation, or explanations about the filibuster. And it has set a firm time limit. Scientists have told us what we must do and by when, and so legislators must do all they can to match those targets. The beauty of the Green New Deal legislation is not that it’s shiny or progressive or a poke in the eye to the oil companies. Its beauty is that it actually tries to meet the target that science has given us.

    … that calculus must shift; the job of older people, at this late date, is to have the backs of the young. We have skills to bring to the task: Feinstein has amassed a career’s worth of legislative savvy, and she can put it to good use here; Ocasio-Cortez could doubtless use the help. But, having blown our chance at leading, it’s time for those of us of a certain age to follow, with all the grace that we can still muster.
