Also lately I've been thinking that if everyone has a blog now why do I still get all those damn newsletters every Christmas?

Howdy, y'all. Sorry I've been so busy.

A while ago some of you mentioned that you might enjoy seeing an updated photo of Hoosier Pond.

I now oblige:

My sister brought me a couple of large flat rocks that I incorporated into my waterfall. I can't stop messing with that damn waterfall. Someday, the placement of each stone will be perfect, but until then there are always minute adjustments to be made. Such is my sickness.

In the photo you can see my goldfish & minnows are hanging out in their feeding spot. Any time I come near the pond, they go to that spot and wait for me to bestow upon them the fish flakes. It's not that they're particularly fond of me. They also do it for Spooney. They also do it for The Banana, who luckily has not yet realized that fish are a food item as far as cats as concerned.

Also, I thought you might enjoy this picture of Spooney getting so loaded at the LA County Fair Beer Garden that he mistakes some lettuce for a full, leafy-green mustache.

And lastly, here's a picture of me with a llama.

See? You can tell I am thinking about a post wherein I contrast the relative worths of George Tenet and that medal that he got for missing the intelligence on 9/11 and pulling the intelligence out of his ass on Iraq and the media shit storm that never happened over that, versus the huge fucking fuss everyone is making over Al Gore's entirely well-deserved Nobel Prize.

Can't you?

Well, at least anybody who *is* anybody has a blog!

The pond is beautiful! Yes, I know about the "sickness" you mention, but I've come to appreciate the value of the gardening hobby - it is never 'done', unless it is gone... like us.

Mustache, llama, all fun pics! I love this post!

Oh, I stopped my Christmas letters in 2005 when I tried to write one that said the 'perfect family' wasn't so perfect anymore... it didn't require enough imagination, so I stopped. :D

Great. This place is becoming one of those blogs where people post pictures of their llama.

I'm down to receiving one Christmas letter per year, thank Jeebus.

I have a friend who used to send out 4th of July cards, because he was too busy during Christmas.

I always wanted to do that too.

Larry Jones said...

I send the Christmas cards because I don't know for sure if you'll read my blog for holiday greetings.

I think llamas are just about the coolest animals around. When the compound finally relocates to the country, you might see a couple of them roaming around.

Yay, I spot the one I brought down from El Diente in the pic! I'm finally learning to pick up rocks on the way down, not up.

I have noticed your meticulousness surrounding the waterfall, I hope I didn't make it worse.

Spooney is cuter than the yama, but I'm not sure he gets the "tossed salad" concept.

that llama is so hot

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

That's one cute llama.

Yes, but at least Tenet didn't win an award that Arafat won. Oh, maybe you didn't hear. Yasir Arafat won the Nobel Prize. Therefore, by the logic of your average right wng pundit, Gore=Arafat.

I still do the Christmas newsletter for those without a stomach strong enough for my blog. And for my parents who aren't invited to read the blog because they I wouldn't be able to rip on them.

Nice llama.

I meant; I wish I had one.
