Out of Retrograde!
Praise the Gods of Skipperosity...
Mercury swings back to direct motion today...
Corny, New Age stuff there alright , my friends,
but when anything goes DIRECT from RETRO
that's gotta be a good thing.

Focus on Skipper: (by The Deb)
The Great and Powerful Skipperdoodle is such a
gentleman. A born follower, he is the Jeeves of
Schipperkes. He is one of those dogs who knows
when his owners are coming home. He will wait
at the door as a sentry while everyone else plays
and lazes in the yard. He entertains us morning
and evening with dances that include pirouettes
and skitters and tapping reminiscent of the great
Black vaudevillians. And throughout the day we
are treated to variations on that timeless classic,
the aria "Please May I Trouble You For Another
Biscuit, My Dear." And when Melanie recently
forced a mouse from its hiding place and neither
she nor Jordan knew what to do with the poor
thing, Skipper expertly dispatched it. (Thanks to
Mr. Jeff for discarding the corpse.) Skipper
also has the uncanny ability to know when one
of us is contemplating making popcorn - one of
the few "human foods" he will allow himself.
What a guy!

The Deb here to report that as with every year in
the high desert an Autumn chill has acccompanied the
hot air balloons. When the wind is right the balloons
float right over our house, causing The Amazing
Skipperdoodle to warn us with a deep woo-woo
whenever the gas jets are used. I wake to this growl-
bark we Schip slaves know so well feeling warm and
cozy all over to discover that I have been spooning
NOT with my lovely husband but with Mr. Entitlement
himself, Jordan! Meanwhile, The Divine Miss Mellie
proves yet again that nothing is more important than
her beauty sleep. Who can blame her? Such a face!
A face just MADE for begging! (See below/right.)
Thankfully, our eldest (Skipper) is on duty to fend off
intruders drifting above, who upon hearing him
don't hesitate to make a very slow getaway.
