My stepbrother had a Doberman that was just about the sweetest animal you could meet. The only problem with him was that he thought he was a lap dog, and he was just a little large for that role!

There have been several nasty pit bull attacks in the DFW area since we moved to Texas, but as I understand it many people keep them for dog fighting, which is highly illegal but goes on all the time anyway, as does rooster fighting (the system wouldn't let me use the other word for "rooster" so I had to edit). These dogs are bred and conditioned to be aggressive, so when one or two get loose from their owners you have to expect trouble. As "sports" go, dog fighting has to be right at the bottom of the list. I don't know what there is in humans that allows them to enjoy such a spectacle, but then, think of the hideous things that went on in the old Roman coliseums. Sometimes the veneer of civilization is distressingly thin.

Hope you find a great home for that puppy!

Fresno Bully Rescue is a rescue for mainly pit-bulls and related breeds (boxers, mastiffs, bulldogs, etc.). The Bully Boo walk doesn't discriminate, though. All breeds are welcome, and the proceeds go to this great organization. I don't have pit-bulls, but have several "at-risk" breeds. I laugh at that, because my dogs are about as gentle as dogs can be. I have a boxer/mastiff mix, a GSD, and a Dane/Mastiff mix. We also have a puppy of indeterminate breed that we're STILL trying to find a home for (doberman/shepherd we "think").

A documentary on EWTN, the Catholic network, said that the Vatican has an extremely high crime rate because of all the pick-pockets that prey on tourists. The Vatican police do their best, but woe betide the unwary tourist who leaves his wallet or cell phone in his back pocket, or who does not guard her purse and its contents. I guess you have to be super aware in such places.

I’ve had my bag or some of its contents stolen in Florence and Venice, but not in Rome, though I’ve spent more time there than anywhere else in Italy. (I probably shouldn’t say that as we’re going there in a couple of weeks — I’d better be extra careful now!)

We were with my mom, who knew something was up and pulled us closer to her (I was 10 and my brother was 12). She tucked her purse under her arm, and had all her cash and important documents in a pouch around her neck INSIDE her blouse. Somehow they managed to get the pouch out, take all her money, and left her passport, all without her noticing while she was on high alert. That's how good the pickpockets were, even back then.

We were stuck in Rome for 4 days with one $20 travelers check. Back then there weren't ATMs everywhere, no cell phones, nothing. Thankfully my grandmother was meeting us there (thus the 4 days' time frame). We were already checked into our hotel and lived on watermelon and gelato until Grandma was there with money. It was fun for us kids.

One of my first Italian words was "Polizia!"

Wow--that's quite a story! How in the world could they manage to get the pouch out from inside her blouse without her knowing it? But I've seen some security videos of pickpockets -- they're nothing if not slick. I guess if you get jostled in public, you should immediately check for your valuables.

One recommendation I saw for men was to put a couple of rubber bands around their closed wallets so they can't slip out of their pockets so easily.

Bead, so sorry you have had a sick kitty along with all the other things you've had to deal with! I'm glad she's home and feeling better. I hope you find garbage cans with combination locks on them. Making limoncello is about the easiest thing you ever did, so if you want my recipe, let me know.

I had no idea the crime was so bad in Italy. Crazy story Dawn! Those are some seriously skilled pickpockets. I bet it was an adventure for you kids, though!

One of my favorite dogs ever was my Uncle's Rottweiler, Rosy. She was the sweetest, calmest dog. I don't really think big dogs are more aggressive though, overall. I truly believe what makes them so scary (and dangerous) is their sheer size and strength. Little dogs can do damage of course, but they have smaller jaws and teeth, and are easier to fight off if you have to. Once a big dog goes red-zone (as Caesar Millan would say), all bets are off. I also think there is a breed of person that is drawn to big, powerful dogs for all the wrong reasons. Those are the dogs that are probably doing most of the damage, due to their owners' attitudes and treatment of the dogs.

I'm declaring success with yesterday's sorting and organizing session at Mom's. We're still speaking to each other too! Actually, it was a lot of fun, and we both felt very satisfied (and tired) at the end of the day.

Bead- I'm glad your kitty is better. Those vet bills are
I've had 2 cats that had to spend time at the animal hospital that is way worse than the vet

3 of our cats are insulin dependent- one is 16.5yrs and the other 2 are 14yrs. One of the 14yr olds takes and injectable arthritis medication and the other 14yr old takes a liquid arthritis med. That stuff is very $$$ as well.

One of my favorite television shows is Pitbulls and Paroles. DW and I watch every Saturday while the season is running. I'm a bit scared of all big dogs, because when they jump up they are taller than me and most of them weigh more than me and I get nervous about getting knocked over.

One of my best friends has boxers. They are very sweet, but they get very excited to see me, so when I go to her house I call her from the front porch to come escort me through the welcome committee of 3 excited boxers.

They have learned that they will get pet by me when they don't jump

WOE: JUDDD Maintenance.
Start Date: 2011
Just back from the Live from the Met broadcast of Macbeth. Completely remarkable - what a cast - from the leads down to the chorus.

I've only now consulted the reviews and believe me - even this one understates it.
Critic's Notebook: New York goes mad for Anna Netrebko as Lady Macbeth | Atlanta News & Opinion Blog | Fresh Loaf | Creative Loafing Atlanta
Quote:
Critic James Jorden wrote in The New York Observer that [Netrebko] delivers a performance so exciting it propels both artist and audience alike "to the brink of madness." At a performance last week, an audience member yielded to that delirium and was totally unable to refrain from shouting out his adoration for Netrebko during the middle of a scene. Bloomberg critic Manuela Hoelterhoff was able to collect herself enough to write of her admiration for Netrebko's "invoking the agents of darkness" in her "man-mashing" costume. The normally cool-headed and analytical New York Times critic Anthony Tommasini wasn't immune to the general madness and was only able to reassure himself at the very end of the show that there was indeed a clear line between stage performance and real life. "During curtain calls, it was startling to see the fearless Lady Macbeth vanish," he writes, "and Ms. Netrebko, all smiles, look girlishly happy as she waved to her fans." Fans, no doubt, who had to leave the Met and go straight to check themselves into Bellevue.
Netrebko was some Marlene Dietrich come Za Za Gabor incarnation. Completely charismatic, vulnerable, voluptuous, and eventually consumed by her own lusts. During her intermission interview, Netrebko was utterly charming and gave a good account of how she managed to harness evil and lust in her mad scenes, then, in her glamorous outfit, scurried away to get ready for the end of intermission, inadvertently revealing the fluffy, backless slippers she's slipped into during the interval (for much of the performance, she's a barefoot temptress).

I don't know how even the chorus managed to unhinge the audience. The women and children played the witches in ordinary, everyday clothes, plain knits with twee embroidery and ankle socks with librarian spectacles - but somehow, their limb angles and fingers were just enough off-kilter to unsettle you. The children were innocent, yet terrifying in a sort of Henry James' Turn of the Screw sense. The women and children were completely glamorous and light hearted in the courtier and ball scenes - to be frightening in the Witches' Sabbath scene - yet heart fracturingly vulnerable and pathetic in the Refugee scenes.

These broadcast performances are astonishing. I'm so excited about the upcoming Marriage of Figaro, Carmen etc.

I recently saw that my theater is showing two productions of Frankenstein. In one Benedict Cumberbatch (Shelock Holmes in Sherlock) is the dr and Johnny Lee Miller (Sherlock Holmes in Elementary) is the creature. In the other, they switch. I'm not sure which one I want to see, maybe both.

My biggest concern is either show will keep me out past 9:00 on a school night.

Thanks, LCG and Carly for your concern for my kitty. She's still pretty droopy and while she isn't upchucking, she still has diarrhea and does not have much appetite and has lost some weight. She tried to jump up on a dining chair today and almost didn't make it, so something is wrong, but I don't know what other tests the doc could do. She hasn't had any fever, but that doesn't always mean much. As my friend said, they can wear you down with these episodes. You love them so much, and want to do what's best for them, but they can't tell you where it hurts.

Carly, it sounds like you know all about vet bills! A geriatric kitty can be quite an expensive proposition, and require a lot of care. Our Birman, Amanda Jane, lived to be almost eighteen, and was on arthritis medicine, kidney medicine, thyroid medicine, and I forget what else when she developed congestive heart failure. The vet started describing how he could drain the fluid from her chest and put her on a heart medicine that would unfortunately interact with the kidney medicine, and at that point I reluctantly decided that she, DH and I had all had enough. It broke our hearts, but DH and I believe that that is the last favor you can do them, and from that point on we'd have been keeping her alive for ourselves, not because life was good for her.

LCG, I'd love the recipe for limoncello if it isn't too much trouble. How lovely to have your own lemon tree! When I was a kid in Southern California my grandfather was a citrus grower, and anyone who hasn't tasted ripe citrus fresh from the tree has missed a wonderful experience.

SlowSure, that sounds like a performance to remember for a lifetime! DH and I used to listen faithfully to the old Texaco-Metropolitan Opera broadcasts during the season, but these days I don't even know who the current stars are. But I just Googled Anna Netrebko and found a video of her singing "Vieni, t'affretta" in the final dress rehearsal for "Macbeth" on September 20. Holy smokes! She ranks right up there with the best of the best!

We love our babies and right now their quality of life is still good, but we know the time will come where hard choices will need to be made

It has become quite chilly here. I'm not pleased!
My last day at my current job is 11/14.
Then we have our vacation- trip to Florida and 1 week cruise.
On 12/3 I start my new job.

I'm not a fan of starting this in December, but I am ready to get started.

I hope your kitty is on the mend Beadelia. We had a beloved labrador named Max that sure kept our vet in business. It started just a couple of weeks after we brought him home when he got out and went next door and tangled with a donkey. Yes, a donkey. It seemed to never end after that.

We finally lost him last fall. I was sure we were going to have to put him down, but he just went out one afternoon, laid down under his favorite bush, and passed away. He was my son's dog really and it was hard on him, and all of us, but not as hard as if we had to make the decision and make that final ride to the vet.

Gina our puppy is a Lab mix and he's a clown! I'm guessing they don't grow out if that? (lol in a way, I hope not ).

Well I sneaked back into JUDDD over the last week and feel great doing it.
I stayed off here about it, but I wish I'd never stopped lol.

Max never did. We still have two female labs and one is a goof and the other is very calm and serious.

Max was smart too. He liked to take the three food bowls and hide them behind a bush after he and his co-dogs finished eating before I would come pick them up. One day he saw me coming and looked at the three bowls. I knew he was thinking he could never get to the bush and back three times to take all three (his usual MO) so he thought about it for a couple of seconds, stacked the bowls up, picked all three up in his mouth and took off!

I still can't believe how easy this is,I tried LC before but after a while I would miss my mac and cheese,pizza and doughnuts and I would fall off the wagon so to speak.

With JUDDD though..I CAN have those stuff and more on my UD's and since nothing is forbidden...I seem to not crave it as much and am satisfied with a reasonable amount.

I used to weigh myself once a week but now have started weighing after every DD to see how I am doing and by reading other peoples posts I know that my weight going up and down is nothing to worry about and to just keep going on..
Same here. I can do LC for 2 or 3 days, but after that I have to add in salads and veggies at least. Now I have some favorite breads and pasta I don't want to give up for long periods of time. JUDDD is an amazing WOE!!

Aw thanks, Yam. I was stuck in the 260's for the longest time, but happy I never put one of those pounds back on like I had many times before. It really has taken a lot of time to figure out what works for me. Basically its low carb with a DD or two per week.

How are you feeling? When is your next doc appt? I think you've told us but I forget.

We leave for California NEXT Saturday and I am giving myself permission to eat whatever I want as long as I do my best not to overeat. But I just don't stress about it anymore. Life is too short! And anyway, when I stress I eat!
I'm so impressed and proud of you for not putting back pounds when you were stuck. That's the hardest part of this journey if you ask me!

Are you going to southern California? In November we are going to Pacific Palisades for a week. I can't wait. It looks so beautiful and we will be close to the ocean.

My next doctor's appointment is Thursday morning.

I've been feeling really good for almost a week. Knock on wood! ha! So, hopefully I can get my next and hopefully last two tests scheduled and successfully over with and move on!

We've got a busy week end planned next week end. Our house in the boonies is in escrow and we have to box everything up, clean out closets, and are having some friends and U-Haul trucks come and clear out the furniture and heavy stuff.

I am a bit stressed about getting it all done. And, I'm sad because I love that house. I know when I walk in the door I will feel my usual emotional attachment to the home and I'll probably cry about leaving it for good.

But, it's time for that chapter to be over.

I have to be careful not to over do physically. But, DH and DD will be there to hover over me and not let me lift everything. So, it will work out ok.

Dawn: Wow! I can't imagine how the pick pockets got your Mom's money when she had it hidden like that! You're right. Shows how clever and determined the thiefs are.

When we were in Istanbul we were warned over and over about pick pockets and we were super careful.

We have been to Italy several times. The Vatican once. I don't think I carried anything with me. DH kept his wallet in his front pocket and was very vigilant about guarding it. We did ok.

The one time we did get robbed during our travels was in Disneyland, of all places!!! Our kids were small and we were busy enjoying their glee. I don't remember ever taking my eyes or hands off the baby stroller, but at some point when our toddler and young daughter were on a kiddie ride and we were waving and oogling, someone took off with our brand new video camera and a bag of our stuff.

They were probably disappointed to find diapers, baby clothes and a baby blanket in it!!

Not as disappointed as the thieves who stole my FIL's man bag.

Like most men, his wife ended up carrying everything that wouldn't fit in his pockets. However, she put her foot down and insisted that he started carrying a man bag after he had an ileostomy.

So, the thieves made off with his man bag which solely contained his spare stoma care dressings, spare bag etc....and his clinical waste bag for his, ahem, waste items, while he was out and about...

She hasn't had any fever, but that doesn't always mean much. As my friend said, they can wear you down with these episodes. You love them so much, and want to do what's best for them, but they can't tell you where it hurts.

LCG, I'd love the recipe for limoncello if it isn't too much trouble. How lovely to have your own lemon tree! When I was a kid in Southern California my grandfather was a citrus grower, and anyone who hasn't tasted ripe citrus fresh from the tree has missed a wonderful experience.
Poor girl, she must be so weak from all the being sick. I sure hope she gets better real soon.

Limoncello (courtesy of Giada). This makes a whole lot, so you could definitely cut down on the proportions if you wanted. It's also VERY sweet. I usually use 1 1/2 to 2 cups of sugar. To your taste!

Ingredients
10 lemons
1 (750-ml) bottle vodka
3 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups sugar

Directions
Using a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the lemons in long strips (reserve the lemons for another use). Using a small sharp knife, trim away the white pith from the lemon peels; discard the pith. Place the lemon peels in a 2-quart pitcher. Pour the vodka over the peels and cover with plastic wrap. Steep the lemon peels in the vodka for 4 days at room temperature.

Stir the water and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Cool completely. Pour the sugar syrup over the vodka mixture. Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight. Strain the limoncello through a mesh strainer. Discard the peels. Transfer the limoncello to bottles. Seal the bottles and refrigerate until cold, at least 4 hours and up to 1 month. (My note: It keeps much longer than 4 months and just keeps getting better!)

That is one smart doggie!

Do be careful with yourself Yam! I know it will be sad to say goodbye to that house.

Nobody's chatting yet this morning? Well, I'll get things started. Today may be the last "normal" day for me for awhile. I'll be slammed with keeping up my own work and home, and working on Mom's painting/remodeling job for a couple of weeks, probably. Maybe more. I may be scarce around here, but I'll try and pop in when I can.

Hope everyone's well and having a good Monday.

Carol!

Not much going on here today. My ankle feels pretty much back to normal, so I'm planning to do the Bully Boo walk if it stays well. I got Lily (the Dane/Mastiff mix) a cheerleader costume yesterday. Imagine this costume on a 140 pound black dog. I may go back and get the Boxer/Mastiff (Tesha) a football player costume. It says Wide Retriever on the jersey.

They already have no dignity, those silly mutts! They take after their mommy.

Those costumes are funny.

I have never dressed up any of our pooches, but one had to have a little skin surgery once and to keep her from chewing at it I put a Snuggy on her instead of the cone. It was leopard print.

Nothing much going on here today, just work. I have little on the calendar but a whole lot of piddly little catch-up jobs.

Best of luck, LCG, and I hope you and Mom are still speaking after it's all over! You are a good daughter, and it sounds like you and your mother have a good relationship. And thank you so much for the recipe!

KeirasMom, I'm glad it looks like you'll be able to make the walk.

Slow, oh, how I wish I'd been a fly on the wall when those thieves opened your FIL's man bag!

Yam-Yam, having had to sell a beloved house and leave a beloved location (as well as cherished friends going back to my teens), my heart goes out to you. But as you say, sometimes it's time for the chapter to be over and for us to move on to the next. Was this your primary residence or a second home?

So glad you are feeling well!
