Now that winter is settling in (at least it feels like it to me) I realize how unusually nice September and early October were. Since there wasn’t much of a summer (again according to me) I think we deserve it. And it seemed to bring us together, the subject of the lovely weather working it’s way into our conversations. Jobs that have to be done in the Fall are more enjoyable to do when it’s warm. So this year we all spent more time outside taking advantage of the mild weather…
…everyone and their dog
When I looked up matador’s costumes for this illustration I got more than I bargained for. I got the costumes all right but I also saw a lot of bulls that were suffering or dead. There were pictures of matadors who have been injured in the ring as well. They were pretty gruesome but I wasn’t as horrified as I was with the ones of the bulls. Not only are the bulls getting mutilated, they’re being teased and tortured at the same time.
I find it pretty hard to see the entertainment in bullfighting.
Tattoo me, that’s who. Okay I don’t have a tattoo but almost got one when I was a teenager. At that time tattoos weren’t as popular as they are today so that gives you an idea of how old I am. Well for a dumb teenage reason I didn’t get one and when I think about it now, as an adult, I wished I had.
I love tattoos. I know a lot of people don’t but to me tattoos are body decoration. Like piercing although I am limited on how far I’d go in that department. My ears are pierced and that’s it for me but I don’t have an issue with piercing on other people. To each his own.
But tattoos, the more the merrier in my books…some of my dogs have even had tattoos, for identification but a tattoo is a tattoo!
When my dog has a bath I’m right in there with him. His baths used to be the regular way with me on the outside of the tub until one day I was lifting him out and nearly dropped him. I’m not sure how it happened, whether he was too slippery or squirming (in his quest to escape) but I didn’t want to take that chance again. The only solution was to get in as well and carry him out with me. However it’s not much of a bath for me as I’m fully clothed in a t-shirt and shorts…I’m more of a shower person anyway.
