The other day I was leaving our housing development with Hannah and Lucy for a walk. Usually it's a little bit of a struggle to walk both of them by myself. Lucy is great on her leash, but there are those occasions when she sees another dog and thinks it's time to play. When that happens I'm frantically trying to reign her in, while trying to maintain the BOB so it doesn't get away from me. It's a total disaster to say the least, and I'm sure quite the sight for others watching. My neighbor used to have a boxer and when she would take her dog and daughter for a walk she would loop the dog leash around her waist so she could have both hands on the stroller, and not have to hold onto the leash. I was slightly skeptical when she showed me, but I gave it a try. After trying it once and having success, I still thought it was pure luck. I have now tried it several times, and tonight I even tried it when Lucy and I went for a run. It's pure genius! It keeps Lucy right at my side, and the stroller in control. If you have a dog and want to walk/run with the dog and a stroller I would highly recommend trying this method. It really does work!

So I was putting together a slideshow for Sheena when I came across a few pictures from a visit our friends, the Posners, made to Seattle. During their stay we decided to take a "Duck Tour" in downtown Seattle to give them a real taste of the Emerald City. Today, when I looked at this picture I just started to laugh out loud; it has a funny story.
So we were driving along in this tour bus and the wind started to pick up. All of a sudden a guy's Mariners cap flew off his head and the bill of the hat collides with the nose of a guy behind me. The impact of the flying object, or Mariners hat, came with such velocity that is actually cut the bridge of the guy's nose behind me. As I am turning to Dan to ask him if he saw what happened, my nose just started to bleed. I don't know if it was out of sympathy for the poor fellow in the back or what, but Sheena, Dan, and Meg started laughing hysterically. Sheena actually started video taping me (as seen in the picture). Anyway, thought I would share; that's Karma for ya.
