20 January 2009


From today he will no longer be the president-elect. No longer will we have to ask ourselves whether change is possible and whether or not we are ready for the future.

The future is here. Change and progress happen today.

Today Barack Hussein Obama becomes the 44th president of the United States of America.

I haven't been able to say this for eight years, but today I can say it. Finally, I can say it, "He is my president."

Climbing Trees

Today I went looking for Milo.

Mind you, he was in our back garden and he was supposed to be out doing his business, so I wasn't expecting anything out of the ordinary.

Maybe he'd finished and maybe he hadn't, but whatever he'd done he was doing something else now... he was climbing a tree.

That's right, my bloody dog was climbing a tree.

A frickin'

He was about a quarter of the way up, just as cool as you please, looking over the fence into our neighbor's garden.

Crazy-ass dog.

Unfortunately, I freaked and called his name instead of running indoors and grabbing the camera, so there's no photo. Just the one of him doing what he's doing now.

Good grief.
