Yellow Labs & Shedding

If you have ever had certain breeds of dogs (even cats) you know what shedding is like. I do not wear a stitch of clothing that does not contain at least a few Emma hairs. The cars carry signs of her ride alongs. Guaranteed there will be shedded hair visible on the carpet, wooden floors and tiles a few hours after intense vacuuming. Lately, Emma has been shedding in clumps. She does this in the Fall, before putting on her Winter coat and again in the late Spring. For 10+ years we have put up with this and it is what it is…I wouldn’t trade it.

Emma CollageThis week, my wife decided she had to do something besides the ‘normal’ brushing. So she took Emma out back and sat down to brush out some of that hair. Pretty ghastly isn’t it. And, it leaves no doubt that brushings, vacuumings and lint brushes will never fully conquer the hairs of a Yellow Lab.

Was this the scene of a shearing or a brushing?

Love, Marilyn (Bittersweet Self Analysis by M.M.)

Watched a very bittersweet, provocative special on HBO called Love, Marilyn. I have remarked here before about my fascination with the lady. Like many famous people burned up in the flame of intense attention, she has always intrigued me. If you love Marilyn Monroe studies, then watch this special. It is bittersweet, painful to watch and brings a cloud to the mind, but so worth it…humanity…love.

“The Surgeon Story by M.M. (abridged)

The Surgeon Story is a text written in poem form by Monroe where she describes being cut open by Lee Strasberg and her psychiatrist Margaret Hohenberg…. 

Best finest surgeon—Strasberg
to cut me open which I don’t mind…to bring myself back to
life and to cure me of this terrible disease whatever the hell it is…

Strasberg cuts me open… they cut me open and there is absolutely nothing there—Strasberg is deeply disappointed but more even—academically amazed

that he had made such a mistake. He
thought there was going to be so much—more than he had ever
dreamed possible … instead there was absolutely nothing—

devoid of every human living feeling thing—
the only thing that came out was so finely cut sawdust—like out of a raggedy ann doll—and the sawdust spills all over the floor…”
