YES to dogs.

And Ed the Dog, a rakish and scruffy mongrel who was more or less a stray until we adopted him around 1990 or so:

De Pin Up Club.

(I thought about this Dutch 'sex' programme on public TV. Not porn, but naughty nonetheless. From around 1988, I think.

I guess that would be absolutely impossible nowadays. Not that we became extremely prude again, but there seems to be a sharp divide between real porn (actually available for free everywhere), and what's acceptable on ordinary stations.

You can google it, but it's NSFW.)
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

My husband laughing
Listening to Radio 4 while batch cooking
Holding five kittens like a bunch of flowers
Watching a kitten's ears flap while feeding it. bottle of milk
My cats sleeping next to me on the bed
Finding good conkers
Going out drinking with the expectation of getting mashed and dancing
Finding great clothes in thrift shops
A Bradford curry after months without one
Driving listening to music at a ridiculous volume
The sea
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.

Doesn't happen much these days for me. I have more neoprene on when I run than someone who's into S&M.

Fridays are good.
