Not Again!

This is The Daily Bone and I'm your disappointed doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Ghostwriter was looking forward to a three day weekend after working eleven days in a row with only one day off. After 11:30PM last night, she was free! But then, at 10:30PM, the night nurse called in sick! Well, guess who had to stay over and do a double overnight shift? So now we have a zombie ghostwriter; and her back is very sore too. She says the only good thing about it was that she was on straight overtime plus shift differential. (Whatever that means.) 

So my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and I will do today's TDB. To keep things simple, we'll present it in parts.

Part 1: Flowers

Star flowers.

Columbine and woodruff.




Garden Buddha is growing some milkweeds for shade.

Part 2: Yum yums with Joey dog.

Ribs, sweet potato, green beans. 

Pizza and chicken wings.

Pear starting to grow.

Waiting patiently for it.

Joey's food related funnies:


Part 3: Bugs! 

Ants on a peony bud.

Red lily beetles who were promptly caught and smushed after being photographed.

Part 4: Clouds.

It's very hot and humid outside today. There are lots of big clouds and passing thunderstorms. Ghostwriter calls it Florida weather.

Part 5: Coolness achieved!

Our air conditioner wasn't working, so we had to have the Empire Heating guy come over to fix it. We doggies got locked inside ghostwriter's office until it was done. 

But the results were worth it!

Ah! Sleepy time! 


  1. Pretty flowers, yummy dinners, air doggies have it made. Now you just need to get your mom some days off, so she can enjoy the good life too!
