Tallulah turned 12 (not 32?) and continues to entertain us with her deft impersonations, one minute Glinda, the next Elphaba.

We started boot camp for Teddy the 6lb teen dog. He continues to have the heart of a lion (and body of a bunny) and he gets frothy angry when he sees the big dogs, especially when they disrespect him by peeing in front of our house. The dog trainer said he was very spoiled and it's going to take a lot of work to get him obedient. (Please don't fire us like the piano teacher did! Don't give up on us Tammy!)
On Monday Kevin took the boys to what for Oaklandish people is the Emerald City - A's baseball. I thought I'd seen the end of watch-sports-like-it's-your job when I flew out of New Zealand at age 25, but here I am living in Oakland which has three top US sports team; the A's baseball team (immortalised in Moneyball) the Raiders football team and the Warriors basketball team.

The sort of thing I hear all day long: "The A's lost in the fourth quarter on a Steph Curry interception." Or something like that...When the flying monkeys come, let them take me.
