Surprise Surprise

Merry Christmas....


no, no, no, guess that'll never do.


Happy New Year??


A little late but, more reasonable.


At least it's not Happy Easter. ; ) Although some might argue I'm resurrecting something from the dead which might warrant that kinda greeting. Two months is an awfully long time after all.


Considering what I was talking about this time last year, I should fill you in that the ever-elusive demo tape DID in fact come to fruition long before 2007 came to a close. So the 2 things that I wanted to accomplish (as written last January) were complete before the year ended. Funny how we measure time and achievements like that huh? Before the next 365 days pass I'm going to do this, this and this. Sounds a little silly. But we all do it in some form or fashion I guess.

Anyhow, the demo has already received some positive feedback. I've just got to get it heard by more people. I'd post it here, but I don't know how to post audio on Blogger, or even if that's possible. At any rate, I'm proud of it. : )


Ted and I are doing well. With the ups and downs that come naturally of course. But "still together" is what matters most at this point I think.


Therapy seems to be my latest theme to follow. He and I are in couples counselling (have been since early November) and I just started seeing a cognitive therapist. So far, so good.


On the doggie front, we got Porthos in the 2008 Basset Rescue calendar. He's one of 3 pooches for December. And looking ever-so-handsome. (This is the winning photo.)

Anyhoo... that's just a little update of what's going on behind the deserted Everything But Poopie fort.

I hope everyone is doing well. I'm sure there'll be plenty o' surprise to see a shiny new entry here. : )

Much love.




"Right Next To The Right One" by Celine Dion

What if we were meant to be together
What if you were meant to be the one
I could hide a million years and try to believe
That any time the girl in mind will come and rescue me

'Cause you're the fire, you're the one
But you'll never see the sun
If you don't know, you're right next to the right one
And I could call it many names
But it's myself I need to blame
If you don't know, you're right next to the right one

In the end you've got a friend for lifetime
Truly there to truly care for you
I know you cry a million tears so I want you to know
That a pretty face can take you places,
you don't wanna go

'Cause you're the fire, you're the one
But you'll never see the sun
If you don't know, you're right next to the right one
And I could call it many names
But it's myself I need to blame
If you don't know, you're right next to the right one

So in the end it all depends on whether you'll find
Warm embraces when I replace the one you had in mind...

'Cause you're the fire, you're the one
But you'll never see the sun
If you don't know, you're right next to the right one
And I could call it many names
But it's myself I need to blame
If you don't know, you're right next to the right one

John, if you have your demo already in digital format, email it to me and I'll put it up on iandouglas.com and send you the link to add to your blog.

If not, if you want to send me a copy of it, I'll digitize it, and put it online and show you how to add it to a blog post.

Welcome back to the land of the (Blog)Living...!

Glad to hear all is going well, or better, and so on.

Porthos looks Fab! and a Calendar poser ... my my but you both must be proud!

I went to see a Cognative Therapist for a while (9 months) and she worked wonders!

So I guess if I keep nagging you there'll be another post in 2 months?

;-)

Ian, that's so sweet of you to offer. I'm gonna take you up on it friend. I need the help. Thank you.

And Shawn, you don't have to nag, but I must admit it helped. ; ) I won't take another 2 months. I promise.
