  Thinking about getting another dog someday - one of my favorites is the Airedale Terrier. I like to think that the Airedale is to men what the Yorkie is to women. :)

This one right above is of President Warren G. Harding with his Airedale Laddie Boy >>> found via Time Magazine  

+ Looking at these photos makes me wish that "Babe" the movie was made into a tv series.  I could easily watch a show about animals living  life on the farm. It would be even funnier if it was made into a comedy...Like Seinfeld, but only with animals. 


>>> bed time, still stalling <<<


Friday night some friends and I went to an art opening at Brick & Mortar here in Salt Lake City.

Colt Bowden, a local SLC artist whom I met through my good friend Riley Pack , a dude whose blog you will definitely want to read for laughs, was one of the artists whose work is currently on display at Brick & Mortar for the next month. By the way, if you are wondering what Brick & Mortar is, it is a local skate/clothing shop ---> which stocks some pretty nice threads and accessories for men!  

Colt did a whole series of bearded men made from skateboards.  It was fantastic! And, I bought a piece which I can't wait to get and hang up in my place.

 The bearded man at the top that has the "sold" sticker underneath is the one I purchased. When I walked into the space I instantly knew that was my guy! :) 

+ Also, I think Colt took these photos? + 

Before I forget:  How I came to know Colt was super random. Last summer when I moved to SLC, I was riding my bike around like normal during the day [probably running errands or what not] and Colt's wife Abi happened to snap a picture of me on my bike which he then took and turned into one of his paper pin wheel collages.  [I am at the top right] Well then my friend Riley whom I had met not too long before that day had said he thought he saw a picture of me at his friend's apt. in one of his works of art.  Riley showed me and it was indeed me! Then Colt and I became friends etc. etc.  - thee end - 

And lastly, I just want to add how excited I am for Thanksgiving. Halloween is a fun holiday but Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorites. As I get older I find myself loving them even more because the feeling to serve others is so strong during this season. Plus, having a holiday that is based totally around thinking about what you're thankful for is pretty awesome.  What I mentioned at the beginning of my post is just a rant, and I will get through it and hopefully things will get better.....really, my life could be a whole lot worse - and I am so thankful it isn't.  

+ Good night friends, it is almost 2 am and I think I am now ready for bed. +

I didn't sleep well last night and I am so tired today...I even tried to go to bed early...waaaaah :)

That exhibit at Brick and Mortar looks pretty cool. I didn't realize it was right by the Hong Kong Tea House. Have you eaten there? I love going there for dim sum. We should get a little group together and go sometime soon.

LOVE those bearded men. I think you got a good one ;)
