Every dog has his day

So Jagger doesn't whine, complain, and carry on, he too shall get his moment of glory.

The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.

A dog and his log ...

As promised in this week's column, Ace and his aspirations toward bigger and better logs


He dreams big this dog.  

Dog in weeds 

We call this one "Dog in weeds ..." The log is slightly more manageable in size, yet still hurts like the dickens if he hits you with it.


Early log. Hardly more than a stick really. This one barely left a mark ...

Good Tidings to you - and cheap gifts too!

Getting an early jump on that Holiday Shopping? These early 1970's commercials might help!
Because nothing says "yuletide joy" like cozying up to the flickering glow of a candle burning down into Barbra Streisand's head. And the $1.95 Papermate pen might be back in the budget this year!
It's worth it just for the savvy commercial for the 1977 Ford Pinto with, I kid you not, "redesigned fuel features." I assume that's some smart advertising guy's technical term for "will no longer explode upon minor impact!" I hope that guy got his Christmas Bonus that year.
Good times the 70's. Speaking of cars, what ever happened to "rack and pinion steering?" Do we no longer rack? Pinioning is no longer needed? Of course it also had that rockin' AM stereo ...

Yeah, what he said ...
