rolling along

Saw some kids on skateboards, winding down the last days of summer. Soon, we'll be bundling up and fighting the snows, but for now, let's revel and flip our skateboards.

I was chased by a weiner dog yesterday morning while running. I passed him on the sidewalk as he looked at me rather confusedly. A few yards later, I heard the telltale sound of his nails on the sidewalk *scritcha*scritcha*scritcha*scritcha*... as he chased me down. What did he think he was going to do when/if he caught up to me?

So I stopped running, turned to him and said "STOP". And he did. Then I began running again. I think he just wanted to run with me.

So not much is happening here. The weiner dog chase is the most exciting thing. This time of year makes me feel like doing resolutions again - like at new years. I don't know if it's because this is when school gets back in gear, so I'm programmed to set goals in the fall or what, but the gears in my head are a-turning that way.

Or maybe it's because the weiner dog chase is the most exciting thing.


  1. aw, wiener dog chase! maybe HE was looking for some excitement and chasing a lady was the best he could muster?

  2. Weiner dog racing! Gotta love those dogs. Greyhound attitude on a Chihuahua frame. He probably just wants to run with the big dogs and you made his day.

  3. I say ENJOY the lack of excitement. Sometimes peace and quiet is a good thing. And you know it can't last.
