Black is the new black

So, Friday's checkup with the plastic surgeon went well, my lip is healing well. I'm supposed to exercise it by practicing smiling. My Wife doesn't think I can do it. Poo.

Friday night, we got the call from Greyhound Friends for Life. Saturday, we drove up to Auburn CA (two hours each way) and picked up Buddy and Poppy, our new greyhounds. Go take a look. They're huge, they're QUIET, they're curious, they've already learned "Out of the kitchen!", which took days to drive into Bogey's head. We got keepers.

Sound like good doggies.

But why the thread title? I hope your lip hasn't turned black. And if you're referring to the hounds, maybe "Black is the new grey."

*Everything* has been touted as 'the new black', or 'the new thirty', or 'the new something'. I just thought it was worth pointing out that black is still, for all intents and purposes, black.

Funny that I should read this right after posting about D.W. Griffith's Intolerance. I'm trying to work that in: "Intolerance is the new..." -- bah, nothing. It just doesn't compare easily to other movies.

I'm so glad you have new friends, and they have a 'forever home'.

We're still discovering each other.

Today, we loaded them into the car and took them to a coffee shop where My Wife likes to hang out. When we got home, Poppy jumped out of the back seat and headed inside. Buddy would not come down from the back deck. Tail down, head down, backed away. We figured he was afraid of the jump, so I picked him up (80 pounds if he's an ounce) and set him down gently. He turned around and leapt back into the car. He wasn't afraid of anything, he wanted to go for another ride!
