Yeah, the dog is awesome. :-) She is the ship's guardian and for two days she kept away nosey people by just laying around and playing in her swimming-pool (she wrecks one every year). The people have a great friend with her. :-)
You have a great life brother! As many times as you think it's tough, and it is, you have a great life!
There are moments in life I can't complain about, indeed. :-) But I try to keep my head down and paint on. My Calvinistic roots shine through here and there. But not today. I am splashing a bit, just for the @#!& of it. One day of Bourgondic lifestyle. Integrating (for 15 years already!) in my beloved Belgium has its' perks. This afternoon I tried pretty much the best icecream in town ("tried" is an understatement, volume-wise) and now I'm off for duck & noodles. :-) Tomorrow it's back to the chaingang. ;-)
