We Laels met in Colville, Washington, at the Eagles Club, this past weekend, as we have done for years. It’s always a good time–my family is big on storytelling (go figure), art work and just generally performing. The younger ones sing or read original poetry, and some of the elders do, too. One of the highlights was Uncle Larry’s humorous eulogy–for himself. These Laels are a creative bunch, I’m here to tell you, and funny, too.
Not to mention interesting. Cousin Sheri plays a “psycho nurse” (her term, not mine) in John Carpenter’s remake of “The Ward”. She’s also done some voiceovers for Disney, but we love her most for her comedy. She’s hands down the funniest member of the family, and in this outfit, that’s saying something.
We have lovely, crisp fall weather today. Sadie-beagle is feeling fiesty, now that she’s slim and svelte, and we played a little fetch this morning. Interestingly, Sadie always thinks I should do the throwing AND the fetching. Her part, evidently, is just to bark and look cute.
It’s a dog’s life around here.
