A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

Lexington + Monk

Lexington got a clean bill of Health. It is back to normal routine for the dogs. Problem is I dont think they want to go back to the old ways. They are liking the new ways to much. especially Desoto.

Well it was the series finally of Monk. I cried. Not because it was a sad ending. It was a very wonderful satisfactory ending. I cried because I do not think I will ever miss a television show more then I will miss Monk. I am so silly. I called my self idiot several times.


I had a lot of awe moments watching monk. One that stands out (a little background if your not familiar with the show) Monk has ocd. He is very self centered. Not in a bad way. He just has to have every thing the way he is use to. He fears germs and animals and nature and milk and heights and enclosed spaces and well the list goes on forever. For example he will not drink anything but a certain bottle of water. He went a whole weekend in mexico with out food and water because of his phobias.
I promised an awe moment...
Now remembering all I mentioned this was the first episode he met Natalie. Natalie hired Mr. Monk to figure out who was trying to kill her. They really werent trying to kill her. Her daughter Julie went to a museum and bought a fish aquarium kit. It had a priceless rock from another planet that the bad guys hid in the box hoping to sneak it out later. Before they did Julie bought it. Mr. Monk figures it out of course. The same fish is a common fish that Julie wanted to submit to a science fair that had lived way longer then the normal life expentancy of that fish. A few fish life times over actually. At first the science teacher said no impossible. The truth comes out when Natalie tells the teacher that was a pet Julies father gave to her before he went over seas. He was in the air force or marines or navy or army or something. When the fish dies Natalie replaces it before Julie finds out. The teacher feels sorry for Julie and understands how important it is to keep the secret and allows the fish to be entered in the science fair as long as she is not qualified for a prize.
Thats when the bad guy strikes again. He sneaks in and scoops up the rock with a fish net but also catches the fish. Mr. Monk chases after him. The guy falls, the fish flies in the air and lands on the ground along with the rock. Instead of getting the rock and foiling the bad guy. Mr. Monk picks up the fish (remember all his phobias) and runs thru the school to rescue the fish. He accidently puts the fish in a tank of pirranas, but then gets the fish out and puts the fish in a safer bowl. Think about all the wipes he had to use after that.
Thats when Natalie decides to quit her job as a bartender and work for the craziest cookiest detective in the world.
