This is a heartwarming story - female Afghan helicopter pilots.

That was great Ghost! :lol:

Tonight Ava will be staying over at horse camp and Vivian will be staying over at grandmas - date night! :D I think we're going to see Superman. I would rather see Star Trek, but Superman has more show times to choose from, which will give us more time to eat out.

And, as much as I love Blue, I'm glad his family is home. If I ever get the urge to get another dog, all I need to do is ask to borrow Blue for a walk. Nothing beats scraping poo of someone's front yard with a plastic bag while the owner watches from the backyard. :oops: :roll: I did the wave, smile and "So sorry!" thing. He was so nice, waved, smiled back and said "No problem!" All I could think was, wait until you see how much I couldn't manage to scrape off your grass. :? That was followed by a walk through the cemetery, (which Vivian thought was awesome), where I spent most of my energy trying to keep Blue from desecrating graves and hunting chipmunks. Yep. No need for another dog in this house.

But it doesn't have to be a large, naughty, dog like Blue.

Could be a delightful, and easy to train, Border Collie!

Hmmmmm????? :evil: :evil:

Nope.
Of all the forces in the universe, the hardest to overcome is the force of habit. Gravity is easy-peasy by comparison.

Ok, I have to admit, it made me smile a little.
