The Hard Lives Of My Kids

The kids, Teli (nickname Nummy) and Buenagente (nickname Bubby) pretty much occupy my life now. First thing in the morning I make sure they get out for their morning walk – run. I like to get them out early, usually between 5 and 6 AM, before anyone is in the street so they can enjoy freely. I take care of them before I take care of myself.

I really enjoy being out early also. It is much cooler before the wicked summer sun comes out. I love taking pictures at dawn. The sun rises sometimes just take my breath away. The way the lights make the Colonial Zone look sometimes is just so incredible. I so love where I live.

Then after the walk is over, usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours later we get in the apartment. Sometimes Buenagente does not want to come in. He is still a street dog and he likes to check out his area and make sure all is good. Sometimes he makes his rounds in the morning and returns in the afternoon. Sometimes he does his walk about in the evening and returns in the wee hours of the morning.

After we have had breakfast and I settle down to do some work. this is what the kids do. What a life my girl Nummy and the foster boy Bubby have. Oh, and yes, Teli sleeps with her eyes open. Eerie isn’t it?
