Diggety dog ...
Yes, I am trying to find an apartment at which I can have a pooch. I haven't abandoned the idea of a DZER-dog, so keep your fingers crossed that I can find a place that allows pets.
This loveable canine to the right is my last dog, our family dog before my mom moved and gave him to one of my uncles. His name is Spots (creative, no?) and he was a great dog. He was a yard dog, and protected my truck on at least one occasion from having its rims stolen. He had a vicious bark, but really was a gentle dog. He had amazing jaw stregth — he enjoyed ripping the husks off coconuts. He was also and expert killer of chickens; if any strayed within his chain-length, it became an offering at the stairs for my mom.
He got along great with all my mom's cats, but didn't like being caught at it. If you walked up and the cats were eating out of his dish, or snuggled up to him, he'd get up and start barking at them, thinking that's what we wanted from him. The cats all knew better and would just give him this, "Oh shut up already" look.
I found this scanned pic a few days ago; forgot I had it. It was taken at my friend B's wedding (she's on the left), at which I was the Man of Honor. On the right is B's sister, F. They're both amazing women, smart and pretty, and both of them have been Guam national bodybuilding champions, as well as South Pacific gold-medal winners.
I'm posting this because I miss them both a lot.
Oh, and to once again show that I rock a tuxedo. LOL
Grin and shred it...
I love to shred things.
There, I said it. I'm admitting to it. Sometimes I bring extra papers and documents home from the office, stuff I don't even need ... just so I can shred it. Sick, but in an anally-retentive fun way!
This is my new shredder; my old one finally crapped out on me. If it wasn't for the move, I would have bought the one that shreds in two directions, resulting in confetti, but couldn't bring myself to spend double the price of a shredder for the double-cut fun.
Yes, after far too long, there are finally some new photos up on DZER's Guam Pics. I'll try to do a better job at updating this page on something of a regular basis.
Random Guam Fact Of The Day:
• Guam's 19 villages each have a patron saint; a few have two. Every year, on each of those saint's feast days, the villages throw huge fiestas, most of which consist of activities and mini-carnivals, gambling and cockfights over the course of at least one weekend, often two. And the food — various homes throughout the village host major fiesta feasts, with table after table stacked with a variety of foods. Visitors are welcome, even total strangers.
