One of the most annoying differences between Mike and me is his opposition to a light, bright, airy, open house. He much prefers that everything be closed, locked, shuttered, secure. It drives me crazy! And when he leaves the house for an afternoon with drinking friends, one of the first things I do is open the doors and a couple of windows and let the curtains blow in the breeze, especially on cool days like today. If we lived in West Jackson, I could understand his insecurity, but our neighborhood is very safe. He reminds me so much of my mother sometimes! Strange how that works, isn't it?
I got up earlier today than I intended, but the dogs started barking and wouldn't hush, so I couldn't sleep. I took a long nap this afternoon, sandwiched between Gus and Jay-Jay. I can always count on them sleeping soundly in the afternoon.
News from the Bishops' conference in New Orleans is looking more like schism with every meeting that is held. The moderate/liberal majority are digging in their heels, giving no ground to the demands of the dissidents. We (TEC) may be kicked out of the Worldwide Anglican Communion after this is all over. I was really hoping the conservative element would honor their commitments to TEC, but that doesn't appear to be the case. It just seems terribly disloyal to me.

The nail on my left big toe finally fell off, the one I killed with a can of soup back in the spring. At least, it grew out a good bit before turning loose. The new nail will be as long as the right big toe in 2 or 3 months, but for now it looks really weird, don't you think? The color of this enamel is "Mustang Sally," a name I can remember next time I go to Holly's Nails. Vrooom! Vrooom!

Cathy, I think your toes look great.

Are your second toes just a bit longer than your big toes? Mine are, as are my son's. You know that means you have a "dominant personality." Ha ha. I'm afraid that is a myth because I am anything but dominant. But, hey, if the mood strikes you, draw back the curtains and let some light in! Tell Mike your toes made you do it!

The left second toe appears longer because of the short nail on the big toe. I've heard that dominant argument and I don't buy it either. My second toes aren't longer than the first toes, but I'm usually the dominant one. Go figure!
