Each year, we have a tribute night to the senior class at my school. This year, I had the pleasure of speaking about these two crazy kids!

Snap Shot Saturday

I'm still working on home improvement. This is a brown room that I am turning yellow. When I took down the shutters on the window, I found the weird stripey paint in awesome 1970's harvest gold and burnt umber.

Woof Wednesday

This will be the last edition of Woof Wednesday, for a while at least. Ralph left us last Friday, but this Friday marks our 13th anniversary as best friends. I don't know Ralph's actual birthday, because she rescued me when I met her at Oxford-Lafayette County Humane Society. She captured my heart sometime in late June of 2000, and I took her home on July 5. Since I don't know her actual birthday, we always celebrated on July 5, the day she officially took up residence with me. Here is her "birthday" video from a few years ago.

Although I didn't know it until recently, Ralph's name means "wolf counselor". What an awesome name for a sweet, loving doggie. Cheers to the best friend I've ever had, and happy birthday! I love you, Ralph.
