Kickass howls at the moon
Kickass, the doorstop dog, joined the keeper this morning just as the “Wolf” moon was setting over Mazomanie, and the urge to howl was overpowering, more so, it seemed, for the keeper who apparently needs to express his frustration about being unable to do anything about many things, nationally, internationally and on the home scene. All of his life, the keeper has had to live with a family story about his childhood reaction to the news that a baby sister was being welcomed into his family. Standing by a window with Grandma Stokes, the keeper is said to have reacted to the news by saying, “Look at the moon.” Grandma liked to tell that story, and it always seemed to get a laugh. When the keeper is finished with his howling at the moon this morning, that is what he plans to do—laugh!
