Heath Ledger died today. This is a very tragic event for the family and I share my condolences. However, why is it the only thing on the news for the last 4 hours? I understand that he was pop icon in American pop culture, but is it a more news worthy event than the war or the election? Don't get me wrong I follow pop culture as much as the next person but it bothers me that every news personality is discussing this as if it was the only thing that happened today. I saw in a very little box on cnn.com today that 29,000 individuals have been wounded and 3,900 have DIED in

As many of you know we have a dog named Baxter who has been to the vet and the emergency vet clinic several times through-out the past year. When he was three months old we had to take him to the emergency vet clinic because he swallowed his rawhide bone whole. Then when he was five months old we had to take him to the vet because he ate a box of staples. As you can imagine these vet visits cost a pretty penny. This Friday I had to take Baxter to the vet again for another expensive vet visit.
We adopted another dog in November to keep Baxter company that we named Morgan. They get along pretty good but when it comes to bones it becomes war. I normally keep their bones separate so they don't get in a fight but this Friday was different. Mayline and I were trying to leave to go shopping when Baxter ran into Morgan's crate to get Morgan's bones. Then, Morgan ran in after Baxter and a fight broke out in the crate. Mayline had to tip the crate over to get them out. Baxter ran and hides under the dining room table and Mayline finally out him out only to discover that his left eye was all bloody. So, I freak out like normal and think that he might be blind. We then speed off to the vet to have him looked at. Thankfully Morgan just missed Baxter's eye and he just has to take an antibiotic twice a day with some eye drops. I hate to see how I am going to act when we have children if I freak out over just my pets.

We have added a new member to the Bosch household, a fish named Google. I'm still not sure about his name but it was better than the one that Chris came up with. He wanted to name him Spanky. At work on Friday one of my co-workers found a plastic pet carrier filled with five fish outside next to the door. We're not sure who left them there but they had been outside for awhile. This is the most pathetic way of abandoning an animal that I have ever seen. I'm not sure if the person meant to pour them into the pond but couldn't because the pond was frozen over, but it is sad either way you look at it. People shouldn't adopt or buy animals if they can't take care of them. I understand that sometimes you have to get rid of an animal because your child is allergic or something like that but you can always find someone to adopt them. Thankfully all of the fish were adopted by my kind co-workers. Pictures coming soon....

That leads us to New Years Day. Well the Razorbacks were in Dallas for a football game. Somebody said they left their helmets on the bus though. I don't think I have ever been as embarrassed about a performance as I was that day. That says a lot because honestly the Razorbacks have been really bad for a lot of years and I have been a fan for all of them. We had The Willhites, The Gibsons and Munchie over to watch the the game. Munchie made razorback rice krispie treats which turned out pretty cool. Thankfully the game came to an end and Frank and Greg rocked out to guitar hero. Well Frank rocked guitar hero, Greg just kind of came along for the ride. Those were the highlights of our New Years Eve and day. We had fun that night and were embarassed the next day...sounds about right.
