Haaaaaaaappy New Year!
First of all, to all of y'all who possibly thought that Bo was acutally yawning in that last picture, as opposed to singing, as I so specifically informed you, I present Exhibit B:
Bo and Dig wonder: Is this burning? An eternal flame?
Or should I just call a doctor?
Anyway. I hope all of your holidays were happy, and that everyone had a good New Year's Eve and all. Our holidays were all awesome. For Christmas, Dukay got me a new guitar. And, that was...well, it was funny, actually, because I have never actually played a guitar. Not one chord (I recently learned that they were called chords)! But Dukay can play pretty much anything, and I have always, always wanted to learn how. And I was jealous. So he got me a gorgeous, shiny, inlaid gee-tar of my very own, and he's going to give me lessons!
People! Isn't that an awesome gift? Isn't it ever so thoughtful? Yes, it is.
And, from the Parents of Doxie, was received the brand new shiny high-powered camera of power. And, um, we all know what that means.
Yeah. Photo entries. Coming your way! Sorry!
But, silver lining, because! Now, you get to see the only existing photograph of Bo: Man Of Action!
Bo ears busy!
See? That made it all worthwhile.
I can't really show you any pictures of the New Year's Eve festivities, but you can take my word for it that things were off the hook, as the kids like to say. When you have a party that involves one guest uttering the phrase, "Reindeer are the dolphins of the land," and who also puts on his wife's dress before jumping dramatically into the lake at precisely 1:11 a.m. (he was going to do it at 12:21 in homage to the Mayan calendar, but then he remembered that 1:11 means something, too, so 1:11 works), and where said houseguest also stays up until 7 a.m. cleaning the kitchen, going so far as to fashion a trap for any vermin, a fact which he then must share with his wife, waking her at 7 to whisper, "I cleaned up everything, and I even left a trap for vermin," prompting her to inform the others upon waking, and whereupon a search was performed, and lo:
Trap For Vermin
..and also in attendance are dogs butts and embroidered pants:
Butts and pants, butts and pants!
...and also you have procured fireworks with names like, "THE PATRIOT ACT!!!" or "SHOWERS OF LIBERTY!!!", which contain, we have been led to understand, "THE MAXIMUM POWDER ALLOWED BY LAW:"
MAXIMUM. POWDER. Allowedbylaw.
...well, THEN, PEOPLE, RIGHT THEN: you may have had an awesome New Year.
And Bo is fucking exhausted.
Hope everyone has a safe and happy 2006!
