Hello Friends,

Christmas is a few days away, and my dad and I really hope everyone enjoys their time with their loved ones. It’s a beautiful time to coexist with family to express all the joy, happiness and love within us.

For this week, we will share our last post for this year since we will be out of town for a while. First, I’d like to say that time really passes you by when you’re having fun! It has been 3yrs that I first made my blog/page, and throughout my mini expedition, I have met some interesting people, and made friends along the way. I hope the internet still exist next year so I continue writing on my site. You can also check all the post I have written on the right column. Also, if you get a chance to check out the website on a computer you should! I had someone send me a message telling me how she didn’t know the website on the computer and the website on a phone could be any different. Yes, there are some differences for sure! But here are some links from the past years that I’ve written during the holidays. Click on them if you have time to waste!

These next upcoming days strike a nice balance of celebration and jovial festivities. With New Year creeping up, I am forever grateful for another great year in the books and eager to welcome 2019! And you should too!

Some semi disappointing news though. My dad opted out to take me to the park because his buddies from college were in town. I was a bit upset, but I also understood where he was coming from. I haven’t seen my childhood friends since I left the lonely streets. I would love to hang out with them someday, especially Layla. Do you remember her?

I gave my dad permission to go, but begged him to be back early. I get worried when he gets home late because I get these ideas that something bad happened to him. I don’t know what I’d do without him :(

Dad - “Linus, I’ll be back early, don’t worry about it. Plus, these friends have taken care of me before and I am sure they will do the same if need be. I haven’t been out for a long time and I’ll be honest, I’m really not in the mood, but I haven’t seen my friends in years and they are in town!”


Me - “Ok that’s great to hear. But if you need anything, just text me. I’ll be playing with my Ipaw all night.

Dad - “Sounds good. I’ll send you updates with a picture so you know I am ok.”

Me - “Yea! That’s smart!”

I couldn’t imagine how it was back then without telephones. I would be sooooooooooo stressed and worried. Telephones have facilitated the way we communicate very effectively. Keeps people in check!

Dad -”But first I am going to get a haircut.”

Me - “Dad, I can cut it for you. I pawmise I won’t mess it up and you won’t need to shave it incase I do….”

From the long hair..


To short hair in a flash! Dad wasn’t too happy about his new look! I apologized and he quickly forgot about it.


Me - “Dad I see you. If I had you that close, I would be licking you and kissing you until I ran out of saliva. But that’s a way of life for us puppies!”


Dad - “Easy now, keep your distance big guy. We don’t kiss friends, or just anyone.”

Me - “I know, I said if I was there. I wish you listened more!”

I can’t believe my dad never listens to me especially with his big ears. You would think otherwise but nope. Incredible.


Dad - “Linus, thanks for letting me go big guy. I’ll admit, when the clock hit 8pm I began to get a little anxious. I feared I wouldn’t have enough time to grab an Uber and make it back to the library before they closed.”

Me - “So you bought them a drink and ran away to the library?”

Dad - “Yes and no. I talked enough sense into myself that bizzarrely I lost my mind. I was so confused after talking for so long that I wasn’t sure what I was doing anymore or what to say. I had to think quick. I refreshed my mind and explained in details of my fantasy. A story about a young man and an implacable mountain he needs to climb in order to get rid of his fear of sand. Like the Tenere portion of the Sahara, the largest desert in the world, he felt he was going through dark nights of the soul. In order to weather the storm and soften his heart, he had to let it all go. All of it.”

Me - “What in the world are you talking about dad??”

Dad - “This. 2018. Second 00:15 - Minute 03:30”


Me - “Just remember dad, difficulties are welcomed not to obstruct, but to instruct.”


Because it’s our last post before the year ends, we wish everyone an amazing Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We leave with this in mind…

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” - Rob Siltanen

And that’s a wrap!

Until next year my friends,


Sincerely, Linus
