It's a rainy morning here at Cruft Manor. To bring you up to speed on the latest developments, here's a quick update.

We got a dog. Err, well I should say, while I was off at NAB in Las Vegas, Michele and the girls got a dog. Michele has the story and picture over on her site.

I was not 100% in favor of getting a dog at this time, but you I've learned not to fight the inevitable. The dog is very cute, but I was suprised to find that Michele saved a dog with no tail.

I don't know if the dog lost it's tail, is a strange no-tail mutant dog, or her breed of dog has no tail. I don't even know what kind of dog, young Piper is. All I know is that a dog without a tail is strange.

Next on the news front is Mira losing her teeth. Yes, at 6 years old, Mira has lost both of her bottom front teeth.

Even Michele had to admit, Mira is no longer a baby, she is indeed a big girl now.

On the household tech front, the old Whirlpool dishwasher slowly died. For several years, it has only worked in Heavy Wash cycle and no other way. We bit the bullet and with the advice of Papa Tony, we bought a Maytag washer with Jetclean® II and Quiet Series™ 300.

In the brief time the old dishwasher was removed, I snapped a picture of the empty space in the counter, revealing the layers of paint and age in our 56 year old house.

Lastly, the trailer for Serenity, the movie based on the show Firefly, is out. Check it out.
