Back home. Joikuspot is working quite well. It's like having a good dialup connection.

I had a lovely day with Katie yesterday. We went out for lunch with a friend. At fourteen months, Katie is already a lady who lunches. She loves eating out. She sits in her high chair and charms all around with her smiling dark eyes. She had fusilli pomodoro and ate a huge quantity of it for one so small, following it with ice cream, which she had only had once before. When I gave her the first spoon of it, she pursed her lips and you could see her thinking, what the blazes it this? By the third spoon she was loving it.

She is starting to speak. What does a doggy say? Answer - oof oof. All other animals go roar.
Carpe diem. Savour every moment.

Katie sounds a real poppet, I look forward to meeting her one day.

I relished the look on my babies faces the first time I gave them chocolate. Quizzical sucks, soon followed by the biggest grins they had ever produced, albeit somewhat chocolately :D
There are some exquisitely joyous moments amongst the sleep deprivation and mind numbing tedium of caring for very little ones :love:

This is Pip. He's two years old. He's a Doberman who lunches. What does doggy say? Well, it depends on his mood. But usually it's:

"Hi, howareya? I'm a dog. Jump up. Smell nice. Hi, who are you? Isn't life great? Don't like him. AGGH! BIG SCARY HORSE! What's that in your pocket? Hi! Wanna run? Wanna play? Wanna lick willy. Where's Mum? Wanna share this bone? Hi! I'm a dog! Isn't life great? Gonna chase that moorhen. Bored! BORING!!! Hey! Hey!!! Waddya doing? Going to sleep now. No - piss first, then sleep."

I'm really not sure this is the right forum for me! :hilarity:

Why be nasty about an earlier post about somebody enjoying lunch with a child? I don't get it.

Nasty? Well, I suppose it wasn't very nice. I've never been an "ooh! look at the darling baby" sort of person. Dogs, however, I've got a great deal more time for.

Would it have been better without the emoticons?

Hundovir, I enjoy many of your posts and the way that you often offer a different and interesting perspective on things. Fwiw I would not like to lose you from here.

I can understand babies and stuff not being somebody's 'thing'.

And I tune in to liking dogs. I like them myself.

My point was only partly about the tenor of the post (maybe I should have said unpleasant instead of nasty? I dunno.) It was more about how unnecessary it was.

Somebody who is very well liked and respected here posted about the simple but profound joy of being with a small child. Not your thing? Cool. But to go out of your way to demean what they posted is something I find hard to understand.

If you wanted to express how you feel about such things, it could easily be done in a depersonalised way that does not treat another persons feelings pejoratively.

Or you could simply express those things that give you joy. I am guessing that folk around here, even if they do not share a love for those particular things, would delight in the fact that they bring you joy.

Just musing. Not wishing to chase anyone away.

You two have reminded me of the great W C Fields:

"Any man who hates children and dogs can't be all bad."

Love his humour, but don't share that particular viewpoint, though. Love dogs, quite like children. :shrug:

No real reason to post this other than it's a great picture of huskies racing in Scotland
and to change the subject...
