Me and the Muppets

I actually wanted to title this post "Blurred Lines" because I knew it would get a ton of hits, but not necessarily the ones I wanted.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, Google it.

That cord you see in the blurry image above is my link to Japan for my classes.  This weekend I held my two Saturday morning classes away from home as I was dogsitting for four nights.  In order to get proper lighting for my glorious image I needed to move to the kitchen of the house I was staying in and the owner provided me with a super long cord for my necessary hard wire link. 

And I, of course, DID look glorious.

The muppets, oops, dogs I was watching were quiet as mice in the background.
You can see why I came up with the muppet reference.

Two sweet Wheaton Terriers, the second one quite old and needing daily meds, hence my overnight stays.

Hardly a hardship.

An appropriate staircase for my glorious self to ascend each night to a comfy bed.

A gorgeous backyard view

Beautiful sunsets each night

I was excited to see a friend from home. Staghorn fern. Several of them, just like my big old one, "Bananas".  If I had known they could survive in this climate I might have risked an encounter with the state border police.

The muppets did a lot of this.. it was not a hard gig at all.

There's my cord again!
Such sweet dogs.

What a posh job you have... cute pups to keep you company, moonlighting with the pups, teaching a foreign language (foreign to them, english...ha!) and staying in a bed and breakfast atmosphere. I have envy. :P

Does sound like a great gig alright. The dogs look so soft, were they? Do they shed much or could you tell? Glad you had a good time with them and in such a lovely home. CG

What sweet pups. I know the owners are thrilled that you were there to care for their babies. What a gorgeous view.

It would be nice to live in a place where you are able to watch sunsets like those.
One thing about your jobs. Never a dull moment.
That long cord, now that is something else.
Mice home, great location.

The Muppets are adorable. And not a bad place to spend a few nights!

Oh, every time I use Skype I desperately try to maneuver the camera so that my double chin doesn't show!! It drives me mad!

I have just enjoyed reading your recent posts.
Wow, what a great beach fire you had for your son's birthday!
I love the two muppets, indeed, and it was nice to see sweet Bumby in her shades. I am glad Panda and Sadie get to play now and then on the green space.
Happy New Year, and Hugs,
