It's the middle of October 2013, and it feels like we're living life in fast-forward. I could swear that it was just summer, when we drove the Sweet Sweetheart to camp, while the Good Boy started his first job, at the age of 12, as a counselor-trainee at a local day camp.
A few weeks later, we delivered them both to a sleep-away camp in Malibu, and then a few weeks after that, we all flew out to Florida to celebrate our cousin (nephews)'s Bar Mitzvah, and to help with construction on my Mom's new home in Boca Raton.
Oh, by 'help' I mean, we walked through the place and put in our 2-cents. That's about it. Thankfully, none of us actually wielded a hammer...

Disclaimer: My wife would most likely advise me not to publish this story. She would be correct about that, of course, not only because she's smarter (and better looking) than me, but because she's always right about these things. So, having said that, here goes:
I'm driving down Mulholland toward the freeway. It's about 10am on a beautiful, sunny day on a particularly picturesque part of the San Fernando Valley. The road winds down the edge of a mountain, following its contour, and I get a glimpse of God's country.
Actually, I know it's probably NOT God's country because of the sinfully high income taxes levied on the residents who live in these parts, but anyway... I must have driven down Mulholland a million times and...

I'm driving down Corbin Avenue in Northridge, CA, something I do every so... Never. It's not a bad place, actually. It's just that I usually don't have any reason to be there. Except today. My Mom is in town for a two-week visit and I've just driven her to a lecture given by a friend of hers.
It's a hot day in Southern California and the sun is bright, yet it's "just" around 90 degrees, not more. It hasn't rained here in several months, and probably won't for several more. But that's okay -- I like it like this.
I'm in the car with my wife and kids, who are on summer vacation for the past week and haven't yet started camp. We're searching for the...

And so, my friends, once again we find ourselves sharing our home with a member of the household who walks around naked all day and pees freely in the yard.
No, it's not me (thankfully). It's Indy (like Indiana Jones), our new female German Shepherd who bears more than a little resemblance to a wolf, but is gentle as a lamb.
Actually, I have to admit that I have some doubts that she's really a dog, because of the following observations:
1. She hasn't attempted to eat my children.
2. She hasn't attempted to eat me, my wife, or any of our friends.
3. She hasn't attempted to eat our shoes, socks, or furniture.
4. She hasn't destroyed our home.
Well, at least not so far.
So after months of research...
