Sidetrack, Ick, and Maggot went to KC for a soccer tournament and to pick up Smelly for Thanksgiving break. (See pic). I was in DSM graduating the Exec MBA class. Batty was home tending to the hounds who proceeded to take over. They commandeered the couch, and tore Ducky to shreds. Ducky was the favored stuffed animal for Addison since she was a year old. She assures us that we will be able to repair it... We'll see.

Speaking mod ducks, I turn into a lame duck as we swing into the final three weeks of school. Once class finishes up, the holidays will be in full swing. As of January 2, 2013, I move into a flex-time schedule, pick up a second class, and will seek a retained part-time entrepreneurial business strategy gig. A new professional chapter will begin. And so it goes...

New Math?

Looks like Gumpa is helping Big Dawg with homework.  Of course we're not sure who I is schooling who.

Ellie comes home for T-giving this weekend. The DSM EMBA class graduates. Peanut is keeping the homefires burning while Sidetrack, Maggot and BD head to KC for soccer and Beaner.

This cat needs a break from the pace. Next up... urban chickens to be approved by the city council.  And so it goes...

Girls will be girls

Peanut had some friends over last night.  Chaos as usual.  No body got hurt, and nobody died.  Great kids, and so it goes...

Comings and Goings

Continue to travel. Am in NW Iowa right now, and here is a picture of a field driving to and from. Fall is in the air.

This afternoon I mow the lawn gets mowed for the llast times in 2012. 

When I return home, my father-in-law and brother-in-law will be there.  It'll be nice to have some extra testosterone around the house... if only for a few days. 

Big Dawg continues to do well in school, keeping up with his sisters. News from KU is good and/or not bad. We can tell Beaner is a bit homesick.  We look forward to seeing her in two weeks.

Woofables moved the bakery to a larger facility.  Still a few loose ends there, but at least we are scalable.  Lots going on here, and so it goes...
