Tomorrow I’ll be posting photos of this year’s dog surfing contest – Surf City Surf Dog.
The event was held over the weekend.
I had a media pass stating I was one of the “Puparazzi.”
I haven’t had time to go through all my photos yet.
In the meantime, I wanted to update you on a few other things.
• First of all, thank you to everyone for the outpouring of concern for my sister.
She’s in the hospital still, of course.
I was able to talk to her very briefly last night.
She has a long road ahead of her, but she’s making improvements.
I certainly know a lot about long recovery roads ….
I hope my experience enables me to be a good support system for her (even though we don’t live in the same state).
• Are you one of the many people flooding to Ello?
Ello is a new social network. It’s in beta. It’s still very rough around the edges.
It’s also ad free which is why so many people seem to find it appealing.
I don’t know if Ello will grow or fade away, but it will be interesting to watch either way.
• I’m still struggling to find the perfect boy puppy name.
Mom Newfoundland with “my” puppy.
My list of names changes daily, but here are a few of the current possibilities:
– Higgins (this is the name I had picked prior to meeting the pup)
– Watson (like Sherlock’s assistant)
There are (lots of) other possibilities on my lists.
(For instance, I really liked Ansel – as in Ansel Adams the black and white photographer – but no one else in my family seems to like it.)
The above four names keep recurring on every list though.
Of those four names, do you have a preference and/or any thoughts?
