The Charlie Bravo Story

Thus quoth the Charlie

Once upon a midnight dreary, I tossed and turned, all weak and weary Banished from the bed onto the hardwood floor When deep beneath the quilts I heard a yarking A heaving sound,  a silent barking Is it a false alarm, or cause to flee these shores? Thus quoth the Charlie; Nevermore.  I dared not peek beneath the covers As odors abiding there are known to hover The ghosts of Alpo past, a foul vapour…
The Charlie Bravo Story

Dad here; I just saw a post this morning that posed the question: "what would you do if you woke up this morning with a billion dollars?" That's an easy one for me: I wouldn't have time to even consider the change in my bank account or the endless tax liabilities it would produce. My new uber-rich status wouldn't matter a whit to Ajax, as the instant my breathing changed as I emerged from REM,…

Dad here; 0500 at the Casa del Whackos and Charlie is taking full advantage of her name day,refusing to do her own post this morning. The rest of the dogs are outside flexing their plumbing, but actually soaking up more moisture on this dewy morning than they are depositing therein, moisture that I know is destined for the bed when they stampede back inside. Since Charlie is obviously on some sort of strike or something,…

Footprints in the cheese dip

Betsy Robb is not a good person. If you will remember, she's the president of the Friends of the Little Rock Animal Village who originally tuned up and played dad like a Stradivarius. This particular song ended with the relocation of Marco Polo de la Horndog to the Casa del Whackos, and life has never been the same. Then dad saw on her FB page that the Sonic now has hot pretzels; they'll be good,…

Grace shall return

Dad here; in case you haven't noticed by now, I tend to find inspiration in the oddest places. Charlie's story is a prime example on this Easter Day. Although much has been made of Zach and I opening her crate, I would suggest that is infinitesimally microscopic in comparison to the sacrifice that Jesus made. His tomb did not open from the outside, but from the inside, and that is how He releases us from…

This too shall pass

Sometimes, it seems like change comes at you so hard and fast that the passage of events becomes but a blur. On the other hand, it also seems that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Everything moves in cycles; without valleys, there would be no mountain tops. Without violent stormfronts clawing the debris from the treetops much like a woman clawing at the bedsheets during childbirth, there would be no room…
