Monday Night News

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

Summer is really setting in here in Western NY. It's getting very warm and muggy outside. Thank goodness for air conditioning! 

My ghostwriter saw a few typical early summer sights while driving around last Saturday. The Canada Geese are raising their families. You can see them in almost every parking lot, eating grass and leaving gigantic green poops everywhere. If you look carefully, you can see another family of geese across the street on the right of this picture. They think they own the place and have no problems sauntering across roads and stopping traffic.  

It's also prime construction time! Check out this group of construction vehicles. Hey, there's Ironing Board Man in the front center. Or perhaps it's his little brother.

As long time readers will remember, Ironing Board Man is my favorite superhero. You've probably seen him in his movie star comic book role as depicted in the next picture. But super heroes often take different forms and secret identities.

Sometimes he gets cast with other super heroes. 

But I'm sure he'd rather spend time doing his summer job at all the road work sites all over the Greater Rochester Area. Here's a picture from a few years ago:

I just love Ironing Board Man! 

In other news, I haven't done a Yum Yum Report in a long time. Ghostwriter and Dad are kind of boring when it comes to meal planning. They cook the same old stuff all the time.

Tuna casserole and green beans.

Grilled chicken, Nishiki rice, and vegies.

Stir fry with baby bok choi, chicken, Udon noodles, and oyster sauce.

Seasoned grilled pork chop, mashed potatoes, steamed vegies. 

I found a few funny doggie comics that I'd like the share with you now.  I just love this first one! It combines two of my favorite subjects: food and super heroes!


Yesterday ghostwriter and Dad went to visit our Oma at the nursing home. She hasn't been feeling well lately, and came down with pneumonia. But she's getting better now. Here she is sitting outside sipping some juice. 

For our last story, we just heard that our good kitty cat friend Minko crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. He and Pipo and Mr. Jack Freckles and their humans are good friends of ours, and we're so sorry about their loss. Their Mom, aka petcretary, always made beautiful pictures to commemorate the passing of other Blogville friends, including my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel. It must have been very difficult for her to make one for her very own dear kitty cat, Minko! 

Please visit them and send your condolences to:    pipoandminkoandmrjackfreckles

Oh, and one more thing. Here's my tribute to International Box Day:
