California Bichons: Muir Woods

On Wednesday, Amy and I decided to venture out into the wild and see some trees. Here in California, seeing trees is an interesting enough prospect to occupy an entire afternoon. This is because California has some damned impressive trees; redwoods here can be 1000+ years old and 300 feet tall. Our chosen place to...

California Bichons: Jelly Beans With Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan and I have the same taste in jelly beans. The average jelly bean takes 20+ days to make. These were just some of the many exciting things we learned yesterday on our visit to the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, CA.

How To Beat the Heat With Bichons (Take Them For Fro Yo Of Course)

This week, Max and Jack are staying with the Morgan grandparents in Towson while Tom and I are in Chicago. We never have to wonder what the dogs are up to; my parents are diligent about sending photos, most often of the dogs lying around the house. On occasion, however, they decide to take the...

Cats, Cooking, and Color Palettes

On Friday night, Tom and I had dinner at our good friends Judy and Nathaniel’s “new” apartment. I put the new in quotation marks because they’ve been living there for at least 6 months, but every time they have a party or invite us over, we turn out to be busy. So, Friday night was...
