Here's to keeping it simple

Maybe this is a sad basis for date night, but between a bath for Inez, a bottle of white hauled back from our trip to Mendocino, and a dinner of Wisconsin cheddar, local oyster mushrooms from the farmers' market, and salad greens plucked from our very backyard, this is honestly the most fun I've had in weeks.

Sounds good to me! Especially when the dog is as mellow about being bathed as Inez seems to be.

That's so funny, because she *hates* the water. She used to cower in a corner whenever we ran the bath, but now a snap over the tub and she hops right in (with her standard Eeyore disposition: Go ahead, do what you must). I guess it always cracks us up a little -- esoteric dog-person humor, of course -- but a good laugh goes a long way these days.

When I was a kid, we had a mess of ugly, mutty country dogs, and my cousin Kerri and I loved nothing more than giving them all baths. (My mother has the patience of a saint.)

When the world goes to shit on you, I say go back and do what made you happiest when you were a kid. Dog washing is way up there on my list.
