The Red Balloon

I loved this movie when I was younger, but I loved the book first.
My mother had kept the book from her childhood. It was oversized and had pictures from the film. My sisters and I would read it, and snicker at the funny clothes the children wore. But mostly we we loved the idea of a balloon with a mind of its own. Each of us dreamnt of our own "Ballon Rouge".
I have been slacking in my effort to post everyday. I've been busy since returning to work, but I will always make time for this blog "pet' of mine. It's existence does good things for my sanity.
Happy Friday Folks!

Please Don't Lick The Baby

Jarrod's dog is so sweet. He is a Basset Hound.
His name is Nibbles.
His favorite toy is a sqeaky hot dog.
He likes to lay around and cuddle.
He is a professional fly catcher, and he hunts them with such gusto.
He has a couple flaws though, we all do of course.

He tries to snatch dirty diapers and eat them whole.
He has a thing for baby toys. He wants to nibble on them.

He does a disturbing thing when he hears the squeak of his favorite toy. No further comments.
And, he always wants to lick the baby, preferrably his face.
It sickens me, because I can just imagine where that slobbering basset hound tounge has been.
But I feel so bad when I ward him off, because he licks the baby ever so tenderly.
He loves Josh. When Josh cries, Nibbles whines. When Josh comes home after being gone all day, Nibbles forgets his need to pee and needs baby face licking time.
It makes Nibbles happy.
Josh doesn't seem to mind.
So, I remain the guilty party.
Could we meet in the middle and permit baby toe licking?
Please Don't Lick The Baby.

Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?

I would describe the music as folk music- 70's style.
This band is She and Him.
I love their music.

It's Just A Game

I have a confession to make. I play Farmville on facebook. When I first saw a family member playing the game, I made fun of it. Then I was asked to just start a farm so they could have more neighbors. I wasn't ACTUALLY going to play. It just happened. I became a fake farmer

So yes, I fake milk fake cows a couple times a week. I plant pumpkins, grapes, and watermelon and harvest them for what? I'm really not sure.
