Quote of the Day

I just couldn't own being Irish.
John Patrick Shanley

I've two huge German shepherds who are my boys. They're called Biscuit and Buster, and I love them to bits.
I never do the cute thing with animals; they are interesting shapes. I just use their profile. Because German shepherds are so easily recognizable, they would fall outside my purview.
