96. That’s what the temp is today. Took Cocoa into PetSmart for his grooming. the Grooming Salon’s phone was ringing off the hook. I learned that the weekend before a holiday grooming salons are BUSY , so be sure to get reservations to get your pet groomed. I don’t know why this took me so long to figure out. Tasha at PetsMart did a really good job with him.
Jeneration X is a funny book about growing and away from our childish, Generation X selves, by one of my favorite author’s Jennifer Lancaster(Jennsylvania.com.) Generation Xers were the generation after the boomers and just before the Gen. Y. They grew up in the 80’s with hair bands, the Preppy Handbook, Acid wash jeans, Jordache, Calvin Klein and Lacoste shirts with flipped collars (Pretty in Plaid, Lancaster’s trip down preppy lane- too funny). While Lancaster is deeply influenced and pokes fun at her own preppiness and failure to launch into full fledge adulthood, she shows us a true sensitive side as she chooses to rescue pit bulls and kittens. In her book, Bitter is the New Black (must read) we meet Maisey her first pit bull rescue. I used to be very afraid of pit bulls and from reading Lancaster’s work, I have learned that they are loveable, so all of you maligned pit bull owners may enjoy a book that isn’t just about pit bull aggression or sainthood, but shows them as loving and sometimes naughty pets. Jenneration X is not a “Pet Book.” Lassie isn’t rescuing Jimmy from the well; pets are part of the story, but not the whole story. Well taken care of pets may prove that we may be on our way to being pretty good adults at times and save us from ourselves see one of Jen’s below:
Reluctant Adult Life Lesson: If you’re in the midst of a midlife crisis, you could buy a convertible, have an affair, or upgrade your cup size. But you’ll probably be happiest if you save a dog’s life.
Ok not pet related but I looooved Jen Lancaster v. Panang Thai Curry—Panang Thai Curry is a little B* which results in:
Reluctant Adult Lesson Learned: Being a grown-up means not staying in an abusive relationship…even if it’s just with your colon.
