"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Musical Monday: The Dog Song

You've already seen him, haven't you?

Bo the Portuguese Water Dog, the White House's canine inhabitant.

I keep calling him Bo-bama.

Please note that he's black and white--like Ruth and Jewel. To say we're chuffed is putting it mildly. But now they're after me to get them some paper flower leis like his.

In honour of Bo here's The Dog Song by Nellie McKay, a perfect description of how dogs enhance our lives. Such a fun tune! The morning after seeing this very Letterman performance, I ran out to buy her debut album...been a fan ever since.

Woof woof!
