May the green be with us..

There's an old expression that say's: Everyone is a wee bit Irish
on St. Patrick's Day.
So quick, get your kids off the road! . . . . No, just kidding.

St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays because to me it means spring is just around the corner. Of course being part Irish myself I'm totally down with Saint Pat, since no one has yet declared a holiday called Bearded Collie Day.

So tomorrow while Dad's at work, crawling around on his hands and knees, trying to hang wallpaper behind somebody's filthy toilet, Marley, Zoe and I will be celebrating here at home, watching the the big
St. Patrick's Day parade on Mom & Dad's new 42" flat screen, while snacking on treats and wearing our best green bandanas. Later, after a short nap we'll probably spend a some time running around outside with the green Frisbee, while barking our heads off. Not that it has anything to do with the holiday, we would do that just for fun anyway.

Then hopefully tomorrow night, Dad will think to throw a little corned beef in with our dog food, just to be extra nice. Come to think of it, a little splash Guinness might be kind of nice as well, but I don't want to get my hopes up.

So today I'd Just like to wish my family, and my friends, wherever they may be, a happy, safe, and health St. Patrick's Day; especially my Mom, who's far, far away working in China this week.

Come home soon Mom, can't wait to see you!
Bring me home something that squeaks!

And so may I say:
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone,
and may the luck of the Irish be with us all.
Especially you Aunt Diane.

Hey, was this the New York Parade
or the one in San Francisco?

Holy smoke! Just when you thought Mrs. Bill Clinton was down for good, her campaign was suddenly jolted back to life last night with two big wins in Ohio and Texas, and one tiny win in Rhode Island. Had she not won at least one of the big states she would have been dead meat this morning, but winning both was like getting a fresh transfusion of blood back into her veins.

For whatever it's worth, Mr. Obama also picked up the People's Republic of Vermont, which I guess is cool if you like maple syrup, but Ohio was the prize he was hoping for. Even though he's still leading in the primary count and has more delegates, he certainly not out of the woods. Now that Mrs. Bill Clinton has risen from the dead to break his winning streak, for the first time in weeks she probably looks a lot scarier in his rear view mirror. If Mr. Obama wants to stay alive in this race he's going to have to drive a spike through her heart in Pennsylvania next month or she'll end up haunting him all the way to the convention.

This morning there was a little rumor floating around of a possible Clinton- Obama ticket. Good God, what kind of unholy alliance are we talking about here?
This whole thing is starting to give me the creeps.

Mr. O, you better starting running for your life-- and don't look back,
Hill and Bill are right behind you!

But hey, what do I know, I'm just a dog.

Mandie has arrived !!!

Hot Dang! I got a new cousin! Her name is Mandie. She's a three year old Golden Retriever. And based on what I see in this here picture, one fine looking bitch, if I do say so myself.

By the way, she's the one on the left.

Mandie is no doubt very smart because she's also a highly trained seeing eye dog, which is something I very much respect. She just recently came to live with my Mom's Mom in Philadelphia where her job will be to help around the house. I don't know what that means exactly, no one's explained to me what her actual job will be. I suppose she'll be doing most of the cooking, the cleaning, the laundry and stuff like that. This will be a big help because it will give Grandma more time to chew on toys, eat treats and take long walks in the park.

Wow, what a life, I could go for a little more of that myself.

I haven't officially met her yet, but I can tell just looking at her picture she and I are going to get along just fine.

Can't wait to meet you Mandie!
