I don't deserve a BLOG!!!

So here I am, two days after leaving home for a quick visit with my dear friend Allison and her family at their lovely home in Beaumont, AB, on my way to an industry conference held in Saskatoon. For this year's installment of this particular conference I've got a gorgeous corner room at the Delta Bessborough Inn, with a riverview from BOTH windows, and NFL football on the TV. Normally I would be madly slaving away on "work" stuff but here I sit, fiddling with my new toy. A blog that at this time yesterday didn't even exist! While I had briefly toyed with the idea, never in my wildest dreams did I think this step would be taken. I mean I'm just not worthy of having a blog. I don't really think I have anything particularly interesting, touching, humorous or witty to say most of the time - especially not when compared to the lovely ladies whose blogs I follow every day as soon as my laptop has finished booting up!

As a result I will try to step up to this new challenge that Allison presented me with last evening (hmmm, note to self - hide the laptop on those occasions that Allison, red wine and I are in the same room!) and perhaps once or twice a week I'll be able to come up with a topic or observation that I think just might prove interesting to anyone other than me! And with that I really have to get some real work done - it is the last day of the month after all!

What Would Chopper Say????

So...I am sitting at the kitchen table of my so-called friend, consuming a lovely shiraz....her husband had just gone to the liquor store because our next bottle is "corked" and now we have none!

We were on facebook, again my so-called friend heavily influencing my home page, and even now as we sit here it is she writing this!

So much to little time.

Obviously, if you are at all knowledgeable in the dog forum, I am a Whippet lover, nay a Whippet owner and lover. And I will regale you with tales from the Whippet world from time to time and of course, will also include my drunken friends and their strange ways. This is a brief introduction to be sure, but I promise you all this, there is more to come. And as a wise man once said as he turned to his companion in the middle of a field, "That'll do Pig".
