A moment of silence

I have drafted scores of unpublished blog entries through the years. More, lately, than ever before. Right now I am not pleased with what I've written, nor do I particularly want to share what I think. And mere pleasantries seem a waste of all of our time.

Hence, the long pause. Just breathing, I guess.

Rocket Is One with the Universe

Our dear dog Rocket, our first dog as a couple, our stubborn, energetic, beautiful Italian Greyhound, was laid to rest in our backyard on December 31st, 2008. He will be remembered fondly by the five remaining in our household, our extended family who knew him well, and our good friends and neighbors.

Here are a few blog posts of the past four years featuring that old hound:
