Dear J-

Once you get over the idea that there’s something inherently harmful in the dirt then you’ll see the joy in digging. Until then, though, we’re stuck watching him plow through dirt and bark alike, messing up any kind of carefully placed pile anywhere he can (I have taken him out of gravel patches up and down this block).

The Olympics continue apace; instead of the increasing dejection of the men’s team yesterday the women’s team seems to be feeding off success after success. I’m not sure that means the women’s program is stronger than the men’s, or that they’re mentally tougher, but it’s more like this: failure starts to creep into your head and reproduce. It sounds trite, but to be successful, you have to be successful, even if that means setting small goals.

So yeah, tremendous joy here, right?
