The grief is very fresh as we said goodbye to Maggie yesterday. She had a mast cell tumor and it spread to her central nervous system.

Jim surprised me by going belly-up for Diana Ross. This is how he usually greets Maggie, as an appeasement gesture.

Alexis looks fetching in her Jonathan Coulton t-shirt and Fiona Apple sun hat.

Fiona is shocked and honored that Jim is approaching her with his ball--he tends to bark at new people until he likes them. This is good stuff, him asking her to play with him.

Have I mentioned lately how excited I am that Rock Band is coming back? Not that we ever stopped playing.

Today was full: we had our tax date, I brought Alexis to the airport, then I picked up Jim.

Alex's new house! She's been there a few months, but I think this is one the first pictures I've taken that shows a lot of it. Alex and Alexis are suspending Jim with a stick. Alexis and I came over to help chip out some ice and ameliorate the dogs' cabin fever.

Here's poor Jim. I played ball with him most of the late morning and early afternoon, but the weather crapped up on us again. He's ever so expectant.

What exactly is Maggie saying to Carl in this photo?

Another camera test: I called Carlisle over and got this shot of hime barreling over at top speed!

Carlisle and Jim--yes that's right, for the next 10 days we're a 4 dog household! I'm taking it as a household/marriage stress test.

No bugs to photograph, so I'll test the new camera on some snowflakes on the picnic table.

Looking pretty cute together as we make preparations to go to two xmas parties in one night. I'm fairly certain I'm paying for it with a sore throat today, so I stayed home from work to rest up.
