spinach gunk: John Buck 41: spinach gunk: How's Buddy?He's not too bad, thanks. His appetite's still a bit weird, but nevertheless he's eating a healthy amount each day. Still likes his prescription food (when he feels like eating that is). Taking all his meds like a good boy. Things still coming out the other end OK. He doesn't want to do much walking these days, we only ever walk as far as the street / front garden of the building now, but there are still all kinds of people and things to sniff and bark at out there so I take him out fairly frequently for his amusement.At night he "walks" with his nose and ears. We go to the end of the path, stand very still, and for a few minutes we sniff/listen as far as we can to the east. Then we turn around and do the same thing to the west. Once we are satisfied that all the pertinent information has been gathered, we go home for a treat and a nap.[img.fark.net image 640x480]
John Buck 41: Sickapie: Got an email last night from the superintendent of my daughter's school reminding parents to dress our kids appropriately during this cold weather. Really? I was going to send her today wearing her favorite gymnastics leotard, but thanks for the heads up, Captain Obvious. Honestly.[dl.dropboxusercontent.com image 202x249]My nephew is a teacher in Downeast Maine. They've had a bit more snow that we have had here and used up their allotment of 'snow days'. His school doesn't get out til 6/20, as opposed to the original end date of 6/6. Not to get all 'when I was a boy' but yeah, back in the day we needed a freakin' blizzard to cancel school.A generation of snowflakes (no pun intended) is being raised. I fear for our future (and not just for this reason).

Honestly.[dl.dropboxusercontent.com image 202x249]You would probably not be surprised at what I've seen kids wear in weather like yours....adult supervision is not always there, unfortunately. At least they're trying.....Oh I hear ya. The one kid I thought of was 2 blocks away who always wears a t-shirt no matter the weather and no coat. Mom walks him to school every day. Looks to be about 8 yrs. old. WTF??WTF, indeed! That's really sad, and infuriating. Those parents are just asking their kids to hate or at least disrespect them when they reach adolescence. The local elementary school has coats to lend. It's a small enough community that the school usually gets them back.[i843.photobucket.com image 300x322]
tigerose: Hey! I made it past my 90 day probationary period! Yay. Now they have to work harder to fire my arse...

exvaxman: Let me add to the good news folks. I missed caturday last week delivering two cats from a nice lady who passed away to her grandson. I spent a couple of late evenings at her assisted living place so the cats could get used to me then drove them "up Nordt" in a four hour trip that the cats were NOT appreciative of. However, they were very happy at their new furever home, and started exploring, using litterboxs, after an hour or so. I got an email from the grandson that they seemed happy after a couple of days. Kudos to the assisted living place letting the cats stay there for a week until they could be moved out without charging rent.
Real Women Drink Akvavit: [1.bp.blogspot.com image 420x340]You ever wonder about the people who post pics on the net, probably just to a group of folks they know, and how they react if they are just cruising around the net "la de la la la" *clicks link* and suddenly they're looking at a pic they posted, like elebenty months or years ago, except now it's somewhere completely different they'd never been to or seen before? I wonder how common that really is.I should start making up back stories for some of them.
catmandu: Hector is a water kittie. I have caught him splashing around in the water bowl and the toilet bowl, not trying to drink, just stick his front paws in and splashy, splashy.Here he is at the sink. He tries to bite the water stream, then tries to catch it and licks the water off his paws. I need to get a Drinkwell 360 (eventualy when i can afford it) instead of using a mixing bowl for water. I think both cats would love it.[i283.photobucket.com image 650x512]
lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 332x591]I'm just throwing this out there for the laughs. Last weekend, one of the guys had a hair bandana for the Seahawks, and took it off during lunch. I put it on for fun, and a manager took this pic. I look completely deranged, but I don't care. :D

lilyspad: predle: There's nothing like being stopped in traffic, looking in your rear view mirror and seeing a Honda Ridgeline coming towards you with no driver. The guy was trying to get something off the floor and sat up just in time to see his car smash into mine. I'm fine, my car, however, is pretty crunched up.[predle576.smugmug.com image 562x450]OHNOES!!!!!! Are you sure you're okay? GAH!!!!
exvaxman: Real Women*blush*. Thanks.In my area I have seen severe differences in upbringings and I as well have a less than stellar view on my semi-urban area for the next generation. Some are awesome, but like the 14 year old who an officer was going to ask why he was not in school that ditched a gun that went off, had an arrest record at that age as long as your arm, I am seeing more and more of that due to disconnected parents. (The extreme far end, obviously). Income does not seem the issue, just the involvement of parents./rant off

I wonder how common that really is.I should start making up back stories for some of them.I understand how people could feel about that.It's hard to believe but the the picture below set off an argument between me and my sister at Christmas.I was showing her the photo at my niece's house on the day, I had said I posted it on fark for something and she went nuts. "You posted that where anyone could see it?""How dare you." etc,etc.This from the person with a facebook page full of real life info and photos. A person who's email address is their real name and has my info posted on ancestry dot com complete with name,birth date and city of birth so she could track our family history. But she was worried about this picture.[grmmmie.smugmug.com image 313x300]
