Kickass, the doorstop dog, joins the keeper with the following plans for Oct. 26, 2023.
*The keeper will not be joining the “thoughts and prayers” parade regarding the Maine shooting as he is both “thinking” and “praying” impaired in such matters and has been for years.
*The keeper and Phyllis will also try to avoid the TV images of mutilated children’s bodies from the scenes of the ongoing wars and will instead view photos of their own grandchildren living close enough for occasional hugs.
*The keeper and Phyllis will continue to fend off smooth TV production pleas to give money to malformed kids, abused dogs, tigers, wild horses and hungry homeless but will give a personal helping hand locally when it seems appropriate.
*Despite a weather pattern justifiably labeled “unpleasant,” and the prospect of a cold winter approaching, both the keeper and Phyllis are so damn glad to be around on this Oct. 26, 2023 that they can hardly stand it.
*They invite you to join them.
