"You need pie. And Walter."
Usually, my Sundays begin with walking Ebony with some dog friends and their mommies/daddies at the Bark Park near here. It got postponed today, because Ursula's mom threw her back out a couple of days ago and wasn't up to the trail at 8 a.m.  By this afternoon, though, she was sufficiently up to the task (thanks in part to a remedy of painkillers and bourbon), but she and the doggie needed a ride.

I picked them up and we were there for about an hour.  Lots more pups running about in the late afternoon, even as the moon rose and the place eventually got dark.  We left to the sight of the almost-full Supermoon coming up:


Ebony is such a creature of habit. Because it was nighttime, she whined the whole way home, I suspect because she associates rides in the dark with the V-word.  Also, she's off her feed again (as she was for the day after we got home Thursday).  She had a good time, though.

Speaking of vets: I mentioned the other day being stood up for two late-day client appointments. I didn't mention where the second of them was:



This restaurant is right off the 90 in Batavia, and thus makes an easily recognizable landmark for meeting people halfway between Buffalo and Rochester. I waited a good 45 minutes before the absent and nonresponsive client never showed, and the waitress, who was also very busy with veterans taking advantage of The Deal, was very kind about checking up on me, so I didn't want to leave the table un-turned.  Fortunately, this place has an entire menu of pies for your consideration.

Remember the scene in the first Men in Black, where Kay needs to explain everything to Jay so he doesn't think he's going completely crazy about everything he has and is about to witness?  I've been feeling a lot of that since Tuesday night, so I ultimately decided to take Kay's sage advice:



And not just any pie, mind, but two boxes of this almond cheesecake heart attack:



We had them tonight- there was still birthday cake to be finished first- and they accompanied our return to the world of Blunt Talk, Patrick Stewart's Engage!-ing series playing a Piers Morganesque British news host on US cable.  Six have aired so far, and we caught up with half of them tonight; the remaining three are ours anytime, then we can watch the final four as they air between now and 11 December.  This season's storylines have been a bit sweeter and have developed many of the secondary characters quite nicely.  So if you're looking for something different, this might just Make It So:)
