S’muttonator by Smuttynose Tonight I’m enjoying a bottle of this thick, bready, earthy beer.  Smuttynose is, by far, the best brewery in New England (Ommegang, my other favorite American brewer, is located in New York), and S’muttonator, is probably their best beer.  Too bad it’s only available once a year, and it’s so damn hard […]

Paw prints

The dogs have been very happy for the warmer weather, and the missing snow.  Above is Charlie Parker running across the driveway with me trying to keep up, and below is his wet paw prints on the bike trail.  I love the neat parallel diagonal lines they create.

Baxter’s back

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Charlie is alert. Good day/bad day.  Some good stuff happened, but then it was leveled out when we had to take Baxter to the vet.  Two years ago he had a problem with his back (which dachshunds are susceptible to), but a miracle happened and he just got completely better one day.  Well, now the […]
