LeBron James for President!

I had been telling Tayja for the last six months that I was voting for LeBron James for president.

I have been campaigning (around the house) for him. I made buttons, a yard sign (that neither Tayja nor Roxana would let me put in the yard) and held a rally that only Tayja, Red and Blue bothered to attend - and they only came for the snacks.

On election day morning Tayja told me that we had to talk about something important.

And what would that be?

She said, "Robin, I know you love Lebron James a lot."

Yes, I do! Have you seen the way he attacks the basket?

"I know he is an excellent basketball player," she said, patting my hand. "BUT you can't vote for him for president. "

Why not? I asked.

"Just because he is an excellent basketball player doesn't mean that he would be an excellent president," she said. "I told you that before! You really should think about that, Robin."

But I like him the best of all basketballers, I said. He is the best in the world!

"Yes. I know. You told me!" Tayja rolled her eyes and sighed.

"You need to vote for someone who would be an excellent president. You should vote for Obama. He plays basketball AND he would be an excellent president. You think about it, okay?"

Okay, I told her, you changed my mind. Beacuse you think Obama would be a better president than LeBron James, I will vote for Obama.

"Good job, Robin!" she said.

Blue's Halloween

Blue was NOT an angel today. She started out pretty well. Every time the door bell rang, I sent the dogs to their mats and rained cat kibble on them. They sucked up the treats while I answered the door and passed out candy.

Red and Blue would bark a couple of times as they headed for their mats.

And then THIS came to the door.

Poor Blue lost her mind. Not even roast lamb would get her attention. All the hair was up on her back and she was using her "I mean business" bark.

So I asked the kid to wait a minute and put Blue in the kitchen out of sight of the door with a raw meaty bone. She calmed right down when she could not see the four foot tall monster at the door.

She didn't even bark later when the door bell rang to announce even more mini monsters. I know it was only because she could not see them.

Tayja Was an Angel Today

Of course she picked her own outfit. I was pushing for a green faced witch or a hot dog.
