Ewok took over the bathroom yesterday.
Yes, really. He’s only a ten-week old puppy and I couldn’t even get through the door to take his picture – there was so much “dog beauty stuff” everywhere.
I couldn’t tell you what dog beauty stuff is, all I know is that there was a lot of it…
It’s the time of year when walking in the garden without a crash hat is dangerous.
The local squirrels are harvesting pine cones, which involves the cones being knocked out of the tree and then falling 200ft before thumping into the ground.
This example is from a Douglas Fir. You can tell from the mouse tails.
Watching Arsenal v Celtic (second leg) for breakfast, thanks to tv.arsenal.com.
Harvey (aka Ljungberg aka Arshavin to his coach) did Sounders Camp.
”Good, very good” was the assessment “but not as good as Scott’s Hot Shots!”
Day three in the little Ewok house and Fay is starting puppy training with a discussion about who is taking who for the walk.
Later, Ewok entertains with his best chewy impression,
before later chilling out with his toys in the evening sunshine.
For those asking, Ewok is a boy Labradoodle, or, to be slightly more precise, an Australian Labradoodle.
Last minute final snap…although if we’d realized the flight was going to be a day late we might have taken a couple more. Nice one BA.
The boys had the car packed with mountain essentials: DS; Play Mobil; water (with ice); and a safe full of money (plastic).
The drive down provided great views, of monster classic trucks
and cute kids.
But once successfully past the antique shoppe and garage sale trap of Eatonville, things started to look a tad murky.
The view of the mountain at Paradise left everyone speechless.
At least the summer meadows were in full Jessica-style bloom;
the guide service hut had melted out since our last visit;
and all that cloud kept the water falls flowing.
The ‘flat head’ and ‘cone head’ impressions went down well.
A lovely day – or so they claimed [ed].
Well it’s done. RTM  was at the end of last month, party yesterday and GA  is later in October. W00t! or so I hear they say.
On to Window 8?
Posted from a Windows 7 build (as have most of the other c r o s s o a k posts since early 2007, but don’t tell Fay that).
 RTM – release to manufacturing  GA – general availability
Why the long gap? Ecosystem readiness my friend, or in plain-speak, making sure all the other stuff that comes with a new PC works in harmony with the new Windows.
H made the salad
and we flew the wing to get some shade over the deck
which helped to diffuse the light to capture omnitechnews
and the other H’s delightful puddings
