Humpday ! For as long as I can remember, that's what we called it. As I was putting my mind into gear for today's entry, I began to think (?) about the connotation of the word, "hump". A camel's got a hump (sometimes two), hills have humps, the Hunchback of Notre Dame had a hump (your ex-girlfriend had a hump! You're getting on my nerves). Then I thought, a dog will hump your leg (so will your ex-girfriend). I will use the word "hump" in humpday to reflect hitting the top of a hill and beginning the descent of same, as opposed to the young german shepherd's act when you sit down at your friends house to have a beer (surely you rant! Shut up....and don't call me Shirley!).
I'm going to try to put the video of Amanda Baggs, the autistic young lady, in my journal tomorrow. If I can't get it in tomorrow, due to unforseen reasons that perchance may occur this evening at Krystel's, it will be in Sunday's entry.
The Pictures: 1-2) A dog house and a cat house (use your own discretion). 3) Johnny Mathis, today's featured artist 4...) The "usual suspects".

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks? People seem to read the Bible more as they grow older. I think their cramming for the final exams! Why do croutons come in air-tight bags? Aren't they just stale bread to begin with? Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety-one? No one ever says,"It's only a game" when their team is winning. Do you ever wonder what the speed of lightning would be if it didn't zigzag? Whatever happened to preparation A through G ?
That's it for today, my little hum....er, german shepherd puppies. More tomorrow.
