#TBT Pause for paws.

Remember that time when Milan and I were walking in downtown Cincinnati by P&G’s daycare, and Milan thought a plush dog in the window was a real dog?

Milan was the friendliest dog. Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made lasagna for dinner tonight…

And there was garlic bread. I love garlic bread. The lasagna was really good too. It’s been a minute since we’ve had lasagna. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿโค๏ธ

Remembering Ernie Banks.

Five years ago, Cubs legend Ernie Banks passed away…

Mr. Cub was one of the greatest of all-time. ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿฆ•๐Ÿปโšพ๏ธโค๏ธ

Words of wisdom.

I just try to be kind and nice to everybody everyday because you don’t what other people are going through.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘โค๏ธ

It’s what’s for dinner.

For dinner tonight, we had another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared House Chef Express meals. This one was Cheesy Chimichurri Chicken with corn and potatoes…

It was a little on the spicy side. But it was another very delicious meal. We really like the Kroger Prep+Pared House Chef Express meals a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿโค๏ธ

Good morning from Northside.

We were up and moving super early this morning. Genifer had to be to work early for a training academy that she helps run. We were up so early that the moon was still out when we were walking the dogs before we left for work…

It’s a shame too. I bet this was going to be a very pretty sunrise morning too. Oh well.
Good early morning from Northside. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Two years ago.

Two years ago, my nephew Edgerton sent us this amazing little piece of art entitled, โ€œOctopod for Shellington & Captain Barnaclesโ€โ€ฆ

And it’s still one of my favorites and it’s still hanging in my office…

I adore this little piece of art.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ

Good evening from Northside.

A morning run around.

We had the day off work today for the MLK Jr Day holiday. This morning we got up early to run some errands. We planned on stopping to get coffee at College Hill Coffee Company in College Hill…

But they’re closed on Mondays. We picked up a refill of Mack’s allergy medicine from his vet down the street in College Hill. And then we headed over to Rookwood. We finally got coffee and hot chocolate from Joseph-Beth Booksellers. We had a couple of exchanges at J. Crew. And ran through Home goods where we saw an awesome Josh mug. You don’t see Josh mugs very often. This one will be on its way out to Boston as soon as I can find a little box to put it in…

After we were done running our errands, we had lunch at Rusty Bucket. It’s funny it seems like every time we’re over at Rookwood we end up eating lunch at Rusty Bucket…

It’s nothing fancy. It’s just really good. Genifer’s been on quite a quesadilla kick lately…

Making it two days in a row. But we shared the first one so… I had the same sammich I order every single time we go to Rusty Bucket, Chicken Finger BLT...

And we shared a piece of strawberry cheesecake for dessert…

I ate all the strawberries and whipped cream. Genifer ate the actual cheesecake.

Other than our errands, we didn’t do much else today. We walked the dogs and watched the Lakers-Celtics MLK Day NBA game and that was about it. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Today, we remember the legacy of a great man. We honor The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr… a man who dared to dream while standing fearlessly in the face of adversity. We celebrate the man who taught us to dream while still loving others…

โ€œWe may have all come on different ships, but weโ€™re in the same boat now.โ€

โ€œAn individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.โ€

โ€œLove is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.โ€

โ€œOnly in the darkness can you see the stars.โ€

โ€œEverybody can be great โ€ฆ because anybody can serve. You donโ€™t have to have a college degree to serve. You donโ€™t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.โ€

Martin Luther King Jr.
