Friday 5: Who Put the Pomp in the Pomp Bah Pomp Bah Pomp?

Who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong?

This week’s mood. I appreciate that St. Patrick was over my shoulder while I ate.

That’s going to be in my head all night…

Happy Friday! I worked from home today which means that this afternoon I worked from the patio chair in the back yard. Not a bad gig if you can get it.

Both dogs had vet appointments. Murphy received FIVE shots on Monday to start his journey as an adult dog. Ollie went back last night to get his ears looked at again. For those who care about dog ear infections, the yeast count is way down but one ear is STILL inflamed, so we’re switching him to a steroid ear drop for a month. Then he’ll go back to the vet. If the inflammation remains, he’ll stay on the steroid drops once or twice a week forever. His sore neck doesn’t seem as sore, so he’s coming off of the pain meds. If he’s tender in the neck again, he’ll go back on, and pain management might be his new reality. His followup is in a month. The goal here is to get his ears clear so he can get his teeth cleaned/extracted because they are causing pain as well. Once all that is finished, he’ll be quite the refurbished pooch.

And we’ll probably have to sell the backyard to carnies in order to make the mortgage. Good thing we don’t have a HOA.

The Alma Mater

I mentioned before that WM is taking grad school classes — he’s going to my alma mater, Rowan University*. On Saturday, we took a trip to the University’s library so WM could take some books out for his term paper. He checked out 18 books, which dashes any desire of mine to go back to school ever. Ever! And I love books!

Oh man. There has been so much built there in the (takes out abacus) MANY years since I graduated. There’s a whole downtown where we had just a few shady bars. And there’s a brand new library.

We mugged in front of the sign.

When I attended, this was only a sundial!

Old and new…

While WM was checking out his dozen-plus books, I noticed this beauty — an old RCA television camera which is part of a larger exhibit which was closed that day. I’d like to think it was a nod to my Radio/Television major.

Another shot from inside the library of the Rowan logo.

We were the only ones on the third floor of the library. As we were leaving at 1:30pm, we FINALLY saw some students walking around the quad. And then it hit me — they were just waking up. 🙂

As we are Old we were ready for our second meal of the day. We ended up at Iron Hill where even the beer menu was taking sides for the Super Bowl.

*Although I attended a few names ago.
