Bowl update

Quick post before I go to bed (up in 6 hours for work): I'm in first place by two games. Almost all of us had OK State, so losing that one didn't affect my standing. But I had Rice and Iris and Lydia didn't, so that helped me.

Five games on the 31st, five more on the 1st, so there's room for lots of shifting around there.

Oh, and I finished the knitting part of the "emergency" BSJ: have to seam the shoulders, add buttons, edge the neck.

The family's college bowl pool

No money involved--just bragging rights. And I'd better post now, since the results may be very different in 24 hours.

At present, I am in sole possession of first place in the pool, with 12 of 14 picks right. My sister has 11 of 14. First through fourth places in the pool are held by women. :~D

There are thirty-four bowl games this year.

Jacey smiles...

I've never gotten a picture of Jacey in full-on smiling mode. That doesn't happen a whole lot. When it does happen, there's no warning: there's just a wiggling, grinning dog about six inches from your face.

But I recently caught her half-awake, with a little sleepy grin:

Smiling--and half asleep--DSC01209

How'd you like to wake up with that face next to yours on your pillow?

The Road Home

These are the two parts of a greyhound adoption video put together by the local group. The videos explain what happens to the dogs from the time their racing careers end until they reach their homes.

My guys aren't in the moving-video sections, but the group used some still photos, and my two are the last still picture before the logo at the end of the second part. (I sent some photos ages ago but I never knew whether they were going to use any.)

Part 1:

Part 2:

You know the scene in The Music Man where the band is finally about to play something--badly--for the parents? And the parents are screaming, "That's my boy!" Well, that was my reaction seeing Sam and Jacey on the video. :D
