~ Election Day, Here I Come ~

I'm off and running with my election day assignment-- working roughly 3pm to midnite. I saved my ballot for election day and will cruise it by my drop-off site tomorrow morning. Then I'll make any last minute calls I need to, get in a fast dog-walk, and launch into Decision 2008.

Now knowing how you feel about it, I have to tell you this election has been, by far, the most thrilling for me.

The new puppy HARLEY will head over to Tad and Siobhan's house for a doggie slumber party tomorrow night because my hours are so weird. They're great friends and always babysat Milo. Harley had a trial run over there this past Saturday night and did GREAT! Such a relief. She's a gem in our house-- so I wasn't expecting trouble-- but you never know when it comes to hanging out with other dogs.

I got awesome name suggestions from you-- some mirroring what I liked:

  • Riley

  • Boo

  • Zoey

  • Lily

  • Dolly

  • Brownie

  • Chubbs

  • Brenda

  • Mollie

But in the end: Harley is it...... although I think she thinks her name is "cookie" because that's about the only thing that gets her to come running.

This arrived today in the mail addressed to KGW.


Really? We're in the aircraft parts business now? I thought it was a mistake until I realized they have to send Sky 8 stuff somewhere.

And finally, if you have a chance, please check out this story I did on one truly fantastic little boy Jake.
You may remember him from last year. He's an inspiration, his family is wonderful, and I'm honored they think of me when it comes time to update all of you on Jake's progress.
