I’m sure many of you, my BFFs think I’m dropping the ball (which I really rarely do) & not diligently pursuing my duties as editor, publisher, printer & journalist of these unique journals, the Todo Chronicles. But this is not so. It’s just that I’ve been swamped with other duties & responsibilities in addition to Todo Chronicles. Great Todo understands. I hope you do.
However, as I said, my responsibilities have increased. I’m having to juggle more balls in the air. Now we often take our Walkies with other tasks & assignments to accomplish. For instance, this AM, we hadda walk to the drug store, not for drugs, but for greeting cards & wrapping materials. We wanted to make a pretty package for our newest new neighbor. Her mom & dad moved in right next door to our Domain. Takoa & his family moved on. We were sorry to see them go but glad of our nice new neighbors. & then just 2 HWs ago, Little Mariella was whelped. She joins to older brothers. We are happy to see little kiddies moving into our rather Senior neighborhood. So we wanted to give Little Mariella a penny bank so she can start saving for her education. Never too early.
We also like to take our Walkies over to The Pond. We like to deliver various articles like calendars & greeting cards, wrapping materials & other stuff the residents might like to receive as Bingo Prizes. They like that kind of stuff. I like to go by & say hi to all my friends, young & elderly.
In addition, now that it’s campaign season once again, yet again, (does campaign season ever really end? You tell me.) I’m left with extra Guard Duties at my Domain while Mymi goes off to help out with the election. We, here at Todo Chronicles, support Mrs. Clinton bc we are aware that her family is K9 friendly & has some dogs of their own. The other campaign has not gotten back to our requests to know the names & breed of their K9 family members. Not that the breed is especially important. Just an means of identifying said various K9s.
But guarding My Domain while Mymi is away against any & all Bad Guys that might want to enter is my specialty. So far I’ve been successful. No Bad Guys enter on My Watch.
In the meantime, I heard Mymi say that this election is so important she’s not gonna go to the Valley of Casinos & Bling until Thanksgiving which is in the HM of November after the election. Halloween comes before the election but she will forgo the trip this year.
Also hadda keep eyes out for the Greenwaste he PickUp truck. The PickUp Drivers have bypassed my can 3 times recently. Perhaps bc I’m not out there to flag them down & say Hey, don’t forget our can. But those trucks are so big & noisy I’m never sure how effective my efforts are. But a dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do.
& then there’s my AuntieGoodie. She’s been really sick & hadda have an operation. She’s home now. Alla her friends & family are chipping in to visit & make meals for the family so she can rest & recuperate. We’re happy to help my AuntieGoodie. We make our specialty, Taco Soup. I dunno what’s in it but it smells PlanetPluto-y.
We’ve hardly had time to check out my Fave TV show, DWTS. But it’s week 4 & they just had a double elimination last night. Babyface & Vanilla Ice went; got voted off. Not sure I understand these unique Human names for one another. Before that Gov. Rick Perry got the Boot. He couldn’t dance as well as a dog so it was justifiable that he got the Boot.
So alla these tasks & responsibilities just mount up & some things just hafta take a back seat to others. But we try as hard as possible to stay on top of things & hope for your understanding.

Didja hear the news? It’s Olympics time again! This HY the Awesome Games are being held in some place called Rio de Janeiro. That’s some place way far far away from here, my state, the Great State of CA. Why it’s further away than FL-land. I’m quite familiar with the trip to FL-land so it’s hard for a Little Dog such as myself to imagine how long it must take to get there. Plus I heard Rio is not even in the US of A. & I would have to get something called a Passport to go there. Not sure I could secure a passport without the Powers That Be recognizing a Dog’s Rights as a Citizen of this country.
Be that as it may, it’s hard to believe that Olympic Time is here again. I been observing Olympic competition for a number of HYs now. 1st ones were in Beijing, which is in China . . . another place far far away & which I prolly won’t ever seen with my own eyes. Those were some opening shows & ceremonies. Lots of the color Red, which is especially attractive to those of us in K9 Nation. Blue too.
The Climate Change Segment of the opening ceremonies resonated most with us, here at Todo Chronicles. Anthropogenic Climate Change is 1 of the themes of this year’s event. They are talking about Climate Change brought about by human activity & well, we, here at Todo Chronicles, couldn’t agree more that humans have to face the music & slow climate change before all the shorelines of the world, along with many of the smaller, low lying island, disappear & humans & all other land living critters will suffer bc there won’t be enough room for all. & that’s not to even discuss what happens to all the sea critters. Humans just don’t know, which must come as shock & surprise since mostly humans seem to think they know or, at least, can predict everything.
At any rate, there was a brief video with the opening message:
*O:-) angel  “Promoting world peace is the basis of the Olympic spirit. Today there is an urgent need to also promote peace with the planet.” 
*:-B nerdThe video, narrated by Brazilian Academy Award-nominee actress Fernanda Montenegro and British Academy Award-winning actress Judi Dench, featured Ed Hawkins’ visual spiral indicating rising global temperatures, together with an animated projection of rising sea levels on places that included Amsterdam; Dubai; Lagos; Shanghai; Florida; and the city of Rio de Janeiro itself.2016 Summer Olympics opening ceremony – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Think Globally. Act Locally. & enjoy the Games of the XXXI Olympiad. It’s a real & welcome break from all the blather of current & unending Presidential Political Season, which, contrary to popular opinion, did not end in the HY 2012.

4TH OF JULY #240

Happy Fourth of July!
Happy 4th of July everyone. All my BFFs & beyond. On this the 240th anniversary of the birthdate of our country, the good ol’ USofA. The time when we declared to form a more perfect union. & we’re still working on that. That’s the good news.
Here in My Community, we started celebrating early bc we just couldn’t wait. We had the cannons roar. Rockets Red Glare. What sounded like bombs bursting in air. & choppers circling from above guiding & assisting where needed. & announced over the aircraft loudspeaker system. Trust me, even with my deteriorating sense of the auditory, I heard all the celebrating.
Tonight, tho is the Big Event! Fireworks Parties. Fireworks Shows in big places, like our own State Fair Grounds. I bet it’s gonna be at least as loud as last night. But I’m prepared! Mymi n me, we have an agreement. I’ll remain on duty, here on the Home Front  if Mymi leaves the TV tuned to the local PBS station show I can enjoy the music & celebration without being afraid it’s gonna knock down our door.
Happy 4TH of July everyone.
