I puppysat today. Yes, puppysat. It's like dogsitting, except worse. His name is Popeye. He's a boxer/husky mix and has one brown eye and one blue. He loves to play and would bark when I wouldn't play with him while sitting in the recliner. I was working on my sermon and he insisted on attention being paid to him. I didn't have the attention to pay until he bit my toes.

Here he is pulling his innocent face. Pshaw.

Zoological Escapades

We went to the zoo. It was incredibly happy.

Elephants have dominant tusks just like we have dominant right or left hands.
I don't know what the percentage is for left-tusked elephants.

The polar bear posed perfectly and went swimming later - huge fluffy floaty thing with paws.

Ocelot that went up and said hello to the one laying down.

Mama and her cute little baby that held itself up with its arms and kept flopping it's little legs.

The white lions were sunning majestically. They thought the humans were quite amusing.

This little monkey was very depressed. You could see it in his face.

The fluffy black bear whose wild relative I just saw in Tennessee. Mel adored this guy.

The giraffe who chewed by chomping his lower jaw and caused me to imitate him. We decided they would be very hard to ride with their sloping backs.

(If he could he would - wave, Goodbye!)

Notes on Random Things

I love how it doesn't get dark until 930.

I love how I can read whatever I want, whenever I want.

I noticed my surgeon drives a Lexus.

You fool, don't you know you're neked.

I always laugh when I see a product that says, "Specially formulated."

If ever I get lost, I will leave a trail of gummy bears, not breadcrumbs.

I did not know you had to be 18 to buy super glue.

There ya go.

Summer Advice

To do right never gets easy. To not give in to your weakness is a choice. It's a revelation of your integrity. It's not easy to do right when you feel the temptation. Ask yourself, "How bad do I really want to keep the approval and smile of Jesus?" There are people who are watching your life. They will be disappointed. They look up to you. There are people who are watching you. Don't mess up because you will let people down. We need a few good men! By God's grace we can be. If you feel pressure, call your buddies. Pray with others. This is serious business. The devil's fighting. Don't give up! Grow. Be stronger. Choose inside you will not make provision for the flesh. -APB
