  1. So Tucker's birthday party with photos...

    I should point out I stressed out about this. I really did. But it went well. I wasn't overwhelmed. No visits to the ER. No drunkenness.

    Theme: "Star Wars". Tucker disqualified as a service dog because he piddled when he saw Darth Vader. So we wanted to celebrate the fact that he's ours because of Anakin... (and side note the school tests the dogs to see how they'd react in any situation, hence Vader).

Cars, and grass, and farm houses, and signs, and those great big (what are they? water towers, with town names on them), and then there's always a lot of cows and horses, and of course more signs.

    Vavoom the In The Parks blog is back like a rocket from a week long survey of Southern California's top parks and attractions. And it's another good one folks! The end of Summer means a big increase in construction at nearly all of the local parks. Halloween continues to stagger slowly into the parks but crowds were lite this week nearly everywhere. So, let's
