Here's Philly holding two puppies who were recently rescuedFor those who may be interested, an article I wrote is published in Bahama Islands Info. Here's the link to copy and paste in your browser.
Here's Dee holding a kitten. The kitten would be saying "adopt me, it's crowded in here and those dogs are really loud" if it could talk.
A casual family photo taken Christmas afternoon. This was Isaiah's first Christmas. His favorite part was the food, especially the candy cane Abby gave him. Abby also enjoyed the food and ate some of just about everything she saw. Unfortunately, she doesn't much like sitting for pictures these days... Oh well, she did have fun running around the yard before this shot.
It was a really nice day with my family.
I am thankful for the roof over our heads and food on the table. A day job I enjoy, a fairly reliable car and so many other things. But most of all, I'm thankful for my family and friends. Love to you all.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Last weekend Kamal and I found ourselves home alone, the rain had stopped and the sun was shining. So we decided to get out for a little while and walk around Port Lucaya, or Ports as my sons refer to it.
Here we are in front of Unexso's docks working our way back to the marketplace. Kamal, who generally doesn't like to have his picture taken (wonder where he gets that from?), was being a good sport and let me snap a couple. He's so handsome!
"What's for dinner?" is probably one of the most asked question in our household. With work schedules, school days, evening classes, social obligations, etc. planning and actually cooking dinner is a challenge. Not to mention, who feels like cooking after a busy day? Certainly not me!
I tried to teach all my sons to cook at least a few things - and they can all cook pretty well actually. Well, this evening when I came home from work I was greeting with the aroma of BBQ ribs. Owen's favourite.
He also made rice and corn to accompany the ribs. Now, I must admit that ribs are not on my list of top ten. But hey, to come home to a nice meal already prepared - I'm not complaining. It was very tasty. Well done Owen! And thanks.
This is Puff. She is the other 3 legged resident of the Humane Society of Grand Bahama. Puff is an old girl who likes to hang out on the walkway in front of the Vet Clinic door. She also likes to bark at the other dogs who get too close and interrupt her relaxation time.
Yesterday afternoon Kamal and I went to Port Lucaya to hang out for a while. As usual, we were walking around the boardwalk near Unexso and saw these. A group of very good size snappers.
There are always a lot of big fish in this area, some that would be good to eat. Like these snappers, very delicious. However, given the amount of boats that dock here, I would not eat anything from this spot.
So they're safe. They probably know that too, since they will come right up to the surface near where we stand.
This week's dog is Roxy. She spends most her days in my office laying on her fluffy bed with her chewed up stuffed animal that she likes to use as a pillow... when she isn't chewing more holes in it. She's very friendly and despite spending a large part of her day sleeping, she loves to go on walks. In fact, she and I have been working on her leash skills. I'm happy to report that she's coming along nicely.
