When Mr. Saveloy, a school teacher, met Mr. Cohen, a barbarian and leader of the Silver Horde*, he very quickly found that he began to like him. His honesty and simply code of right and wrong very soon had Mr. Saveloy wishing he too was a barbarian. Up until that point Mr. Saveloy's greatest battle had been in trying to keep discipline in the classroom. So he became a member of Ghengiz Cohen's Silver Horde.
As Mr. Saveloy (aka Teach) reminisced, having been with the 'Horde' for a while, it was hard for him to remember having ever done anything else.
So ... is it just me, or is it the same for other doggy people? Because I can't really remember NOT having a dog, and can't imagine myself EVER being without one!
Ramble over ... I'm finding it hard to concentrate what with the noise of four dogs snoring.
Although there are quite a few folks logged on in the mornings, nothing much seems to be happening. Anyway, shouldn't the women-folk be hoovering and doing the laundry n stuff?
