I hope the Mayor is right. And I hope we can elect folks to the Senate who DO work together despite Party affiliations.
Things are just getting worse in government every day.
…so I’m watching a show on PBS about the evolutionary development of dogs from ancient wolves. Part of my “can’t sleep” strategy is to try to find something very boring to watch on the Tube and to fall asleep in my recliner. Unfortunately, I’m getting very interested in this dog/evolution story. Now they are talking about ancient civilizations in Mexico who believed dogs had magical powers… especially a large, hairless dog that still exists as a species, but shows up in wall paintings on ancient step pyramids.
Apparently the whole litter of new Mexican pups are not hairless… only a few out of many have the gene that causes hairlessness… and these are the ones revered as magical. Oddly enough as I watch this, I can hear Nestle, my Labby, up in the stairwell. I can tell from the sound of his license and collar items jingling that he is up on the stair landing where he will likely stay until I come back upstairs to bed. This is a ritual we go through on a regular basis.
Now they are showing Inuit dogs that pull sleds in -30° weather and never sleep a night indoors. Their extreme senses of hearing, touch and smell protect the Inuit hunters from falling into hidden cracks in the ice into a deadly sea among other dangers. The dogs are the only species that can fight with Polar bears and win.
OK… I’m getting tired again… I’m going back to bed… Nestle will come along with me (he has slept in the middle of the bed between Elly and me for the the past 9 years.) ‘Night folks.
