ONE FACT AND ONE DREAM, we need you! If you don't want to look like a homeless bum edition....

Go to comments and tell us your fact and your dream today! Don't think about it too hard, just whatever pops into your head!

Now mine: Fact is, the teaset below is super dooper and i need to use that decoration scheme AGAIN AND AGAIN and again!
Dream: I don't need to dream of nice weather, holy cats, so nice out, 70 and sunny today, and warm expected for several days! The polar bears are crying.....and a mosquito bit me inside the house this morning...but other than that, I love it :)
But, for real, I dreamt somebody gave me a huge fish tank and I spent the night trying to figure out how to keep them alive....

(teaset by Gary Rith)

Penny and I went over to Cornell yesterday to pick up the wife and meet a dog walking CLIENT of mine. You will recall that although I will walk my own dog free of charge, I have a secret sideline as a DOG WALKER and PET SITTER and CAT WRANGLER. I started this because so many people ask me to dog or cat sit, and I like to usually, but ahem, giving me a bag of dog treats after 2 hours work or a pair of souvenir glasses from New Jersey? NO, I was really feeling like people were taking advantage of my time and good nature. I have a fee schedule, I go to your house at your instructions, wherever that might be, and I will wear out your pup with fun times......

I see myself here and its like "shave from time to time, Gary, or people will be wondering if you are a bum..."

Dream: Jeff and I build a home and studio on a perfect piece of land. The house can be small and filled handcrafted furniture, pottery, and lots of art. The studio can be BIG, with a place to keep everything organized.
Fact: Our home is small and filled with pots and art... our studio is small and very messy!

Fact: I have a million pieces of pottery I would like to make.
Dream: Making them.

For some reason your pictures from today are not downloading, so I am using my imagination for the teaset!

My neice has a dog-walking/sitting service and it turned into a full-time business and she had to hire other people to meet the demand!

Dream: I was running with a bunch of people in band uniforms.
Fact: While that was an odd dream, I was annoyed to have woken up as I had just gotten back to sleep!

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen said...

Fact: I slept late and feel better but like a sloth too.

Dream: that while I am on my dog-less walk today, the people near my neighborhood come out while I'm walking by and give me their sweet dog. She stands at the fence almost every day when I come by waiting for me to pet her. Their yard is gross and I don't think anyone pays attention to her. I want to take her but dog thief, I am not.

Fact: laughter strengthens your pain tolerance. Learned that today from a comedian.
Dream: I really really hope that when I get back to Syracuse the weather is nice and not gross and wet like it was when i left

FACT: I am on my way towards a weekend full of softball and HOT sun!
Dream: I wish you and the Misses were my neighbor....I could use a good/reliable dog 'wearer- outer'!!!
