What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.
~ Mother Teresa

they were all home for their dad's birthday. 
everyone brought him candy and we made tamales
for dinner, along with this vegan chocolate cake
i made them all help roll the tamales
and line up outside to take a photo.
it makes me feel good to think i still can get them
to listen to me at times and do what i ask. 

he gets nervous when the house is full of people, 
even his people, and their dogs. . .  

I say, thirteen is too many dogs for good mental health. Five is pretty much the limit. More than five dogs and you forfeit your right to call yourself entirely sane. Even if the dogs are small.
~ E. Lockhart

happy valentines day to this old man
and to all of you! 
hope your day is full of love.
