Tremendous storm blew through our neighborhood last night. It blew off our chimney, it downed hundreds of trees in our park and in yards. Most of the exit routes from Como Park are blocked. It's awful to see all the beautiful huge old trees in the park uprooted and lying across the paths.
I'm writing this from my mother's apartment, 10 minutes away, where all they got was a little rain.
If you want to see more pictures and read a little more about the storm, you can go here, to my family blog.
Riley spent most of the night quaking in the bathroom. I gave him a melatonin pill, as recommended by the famous Lo, but it didn't really stand a chance against the powerful winds, the lightning, the thunder, and the rain.

i logged onto Sitstay to order more macho stix for the boys, and i got this sad message:
Macho Stix, Super Macho Stix, Halfo Macho Stix, and NotSo Macho Stix are discontinued. (Let’s all join in a collective “sigh” and a couple of “Oh, no, you’re kidding me!”)
Yes, the raw product is entering the human food chain outside the US.
The good news is, if they are ever available again we’ll tell you right away. We’ve been carrying the Machos for you and your dogs for almost 11 years. We’ve had fun with the humor and making up great names for them and our dogs have enjoyed this great chew. Now it’s time to move on until they cycle back around again. We continue to bring you the very best in dog goods and edibles. Thank you for your loyalty and your business. – Darcie Krueger, President
whoa whoa whoa. hold on there. let's look at that message again. the raw product is entering the human food chain outside the US.
that's more alarming than the thought of boscoe being deprived of his favorite chewie. because we all know what the raw product is, right? bull penises. that's right. bull penises.
and bull penises are now entering into the human food chain outside the U.S.?
ok, the US does a lot of stupid things, but we are not stupid enough to feed ourselves bull penises. no, we are just smart enough to know that we should leave those for the dogs. i know i have quite a few international readers on this blog...who of you will step forward and claim bull penises for your country?
post recipes if you've got 'em.
