This morning nmom took me on my normal early morning walk.

She forgot to cook my squashes. We had udon noodles with chicken broth, kaffir lime leaves, mushrooms and chicken instead.

Mom needs to forget more often. It was delicious.

She went to do a bit of volunteering, came home to grab a cup of coffee and change for more appropriate work attire. I asked to go out. She leashed me up and off we went for a .....


at 9:34 am.

Nmom while thinking it was cute really wanted to go to work. All my pleadings, passive agressiveness, adorableness and mind bending did not work this time to keep her at home with me.

Off she went to make the world safe against impending tidal waves and the data that is used to validate the models of such things.

So boring.

At least she came home early to take me for a walk and then spent some quality time eating bones in the back yard.

She did not do that (bone eating), but supervised my bone chewing.

Shouldn't one be able to call into work at least once a summer and say "I'm calling in well, my dog has decided that today would better be spent roaching and flat basseting than researching which filtering algorithm is appropriate for 15 second data".

Ernest! That is the best photo ever. But you need to learn to censor yourself a bit. My mom just melted to nothing on the spot and I haven't had breakfast yet, so way to go. Now I'm going to go hungry.

Speaking of which, mom wants to know what you eat. She asked this before melting, btw.
