my life is changing in so many ways*

* opening line from 'a man needs a maid' by Neil Yong

and why is my life changing in so many ways? because yesterday, Lottie, our eight week old bearded collie puppy came to live with us. she is, of course, adorable

but you don't have to take my word for it - see for yourself:

"there's (d)anger on the edge of town" *


* from 'the end' by the Doors:

lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
and all the children are insane, all the children are insane
waiting for the summer rain, yeah
there's danger on the edge of town
ride the King's highway, baby
weird scenes inside the gold mine
ride the highway west, baby
ride the snake, ride the snake
to the lake, the ancient lake, baby
the snake is long, seven miles
