I'm not saying that what I am doing is wise, but I have not watched any news in a month. In fact, I use to watch a couple of hours of TV every night. My favorite shows are Home improvement or the cooking shows, and NCIS. I never missed an
episode, if I could help it. But since I decided that the news only upset me and I made the decision not to watch , my TV viewing has also taken a dive. Then I discovered , courtesy of a Grandchild, Netflex and Amazon Prime. I am hooked. I have seen more interesting
programs and movies in these few weeks than I have in a year. Today I watched Caesar Millan train killer dogs. I almost wished that I could use some of his pointers on Noodle, but Noodle doesn't qualify as a killer. Noodle came to us docile,socialized and
impaired. I didn't hear him bark for a year. Now he barks when he gets really excited, which doesn't happen often. If he has one bad trait , it is that he thinks I am going to relent on the begging at the table. He is so blind that he will beg at a place
where no one is sitting. I feel for him, but he still isn't getting anything at the table. He is a slow learner. But sweet.
