What do dogs dream of after the temperature drops 40 degrees in one day?

And Especially A Time To Sleep…

A Time To Sleep

Ecclesiastes 3

1   To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2   A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3   A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4   A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5   A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6   A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7   A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8   A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.

I Welcome You to the New kurtbrindley.com

It is with heavy but happy heart that I say goodbye to my old me – the novels, the poetry, the short stories, the haiku – and say hello to the new me!

A me that only wishes to blog about that which he loves most, not counting his lovely and loving wife and children, of course…

And that which I love most, not counting you know who, is My Dogs & Ramen!!!

Let’s face it, my writing efforts just aren’t cutting it. Have you bought one of my books?!

No, of course you haven’t.

So why deal with that stress and frustration when I can do something here that I truly enjoy…

And that is to embrace the inner Pet Lovin’ Foodie in me and begin posting pictures of my dogs and all the ramen joints that the wife and I love to seek out and enjoy!!!

So, without further ado, let’s get this party of a new blogging format started, shall we…

Since you all know my dogs Aurelius & Zeno, two loving but highly destructive Plott Hound brothers, I shall commence my new photo-blogging journey with a picture of Baltimore’s newest Ramen Joint TenTen Ramen

Ramen-joint

As I wrote to my friends on my private Facebook page, which probably didn’t include you, TenTen is hands down the best ramen joint my lovely and loving wife and I have had the pleasure of eating at in the States.

Yes, even better than any in New York City.

Mmm, delish...
Mmm, delish…
Look at that! Hungry yet?

In following issues I will discuss the history of ramen (you cannot imagine how exciting and full of intrigue it is) and we will have an in-depth conversation with the man behind TenTen Ramen.

Stay tuned!

And because this blog is also now dedicated to my dogs as well as ramen, I will share a few shots of my boys with you.

I should add here that, even though I will no longer post literary things here, after reading more about the Clean Reader app, I have decided that I am going to endorse their efforts after all, instead of opposing them. The founders are good Christian people with good intentions. So, since I am no longer opposed to censorship in literature, I feel it is best for me to be more prudent with my photography and edit over that which may be offensive.

Well, I hope you are as excited about my blog’s new direction as I am. Wish me well!!!

Have a Pet-Lovin’ Food-filled day!!!™
