Do you think the likes of Athena, Beth, Wanda, Steve, and others might make a show too?

That would be cool, Mark too.:D

You've come along way since the green shag carpet, my friend.
Don't be a stranger, k? You can hang with us even without your gear.

It is a trick, nothing for perspective in the shot. Really she is only like 9" tall, maybe a bit more

We need to see perspective. Just say'n.:D

Still lurking from time to time.

Whoa, another comes out of the shadows. YAY!!!!

Hi, Steve, *waves* congrats on the Grampy, tis a marvelous thing.


G'Evening folks. My turn to multi-task between here, LR and spreadsheets. I figured it was time to finish up January month-end, what with February's coming up rather soon.:lol:

I heard a report of how the curling has far exceeded the popularity they had assumed it would. It is turning out to be quite a fan favourite. It has at least as much action as baseball. I quite like it too, though would much rather play. :D

Hockey rules are not too tough, if you have any questions throw them out here. I played for many years, and have always watched hockey. I really believe it to be the ultimate action team sport to watch.

We have a beautiful new animal shelter here, and I decided to give myself a tour today. It's really very nice, and it was really time well-spent. I saw lots of beautiful dogs, and wished I was in a position to take a few of them home.

I was struck by a couple things:
1. There are a lot of Pit Bulls/Pit Bull mixes there. Some were just absolutely gorgeous and oh so friendly. I think the reason is that many of the people around here who are most fond of that breed also tend to be irresponsible types. Most of them were listed as strays as opposed to owner surrenders. You sort of wonder why their owners wouldn't even bother looking for them. I have a theory, but won't share it.
2. Jack Russel Terriers must be pretty randy. At least half the small/medium-sized dogs there were Jack Russel mixes. German Shepherds were a close second, although I didn't see any Jack Russel/Shepherd mixes. I guess certain laws of physics apply in dog romances.
3. Some dogs really seem to understand their predicament, and do their best to look pathetic. They can turn that 'look' on and off like a light bulb. Other dogs just love whatever attention you give them, and a finger through the wire is enough to set the tails to spinning like a windmill.
3. Every dog there deserves a real home. I felt very inadequate after leaving. The old dogs touched me the most. Their future is probably pretty bleak.

GAAAAAAH.

Yeah... I, too, made the mistake of visiting the local animal shelter once, many years ago.

I don't know how C@ does it and still stays sane! She's much stronger than I.

I've adopted many furred and feathered (and even a few finned) friends in my life, but that one day I visited the shelter I brought home a mistake. I should have returned him, but I proved even more stubborn than he was. But, it wasn't much of a victory...

I do still think about ol' Phydough occasionally. Sometimes I'll even drop a tear or two while thinking about him. He wasn't evil... He was just misunderstood and mistreated. And, no matter what I did, I could never convince him I had the right intentions.

Still... I don't ever want to go through that one again.

I don't put much out because I don't want to alter their diet(of my azaleas:roll:) but a scoop every other few days keeps them right at my door. The problem is they will tear up the lawn if it's soft and you put the corn in the same place.

watching the bronze medal women's hockey game. It's btw. Canada & Finland. The winner will advance to play the U.S. for the gold.

Hockey's so fast....at least, my first hockey games (watching) were the women's games and I had a hard time following but the men play even faster.

I was trying to figure out what the penalties are...because something that look like penalties (like knocking someone down and skating over them) aren't penalties but I'm not sure what are.

And I didn't know why sometimes a penalty would be called and the player out but no new player in. Dan said that unlike other sports, that is the penalty...unmatched teams.

For what it is worth, Chief, I don't think you should have stayed home. By observing the plight of these pups, you are more aware. By being more aware, you can share that awareness, in many kinds of ways. There are many ways to affect change, obviously we can't all bring home 20 dogs, no matter how deserving. But that doesn't mean we can't say something to 20 people, who may know another 20 people and so on and so on. And then who knows, maybe one or two of those will think twice about not spaying their pet. Or, may choose to do the same thing you did and visit a local shelter and choose a new pet from there. *shrug* We are small in the big scheme of things, but that in no way means we cannot do big things in small steps.

I am glad you went and visited. And I bet you made some pups happy with your attention :D

Dan said that unlike other sports, that is the penalty...unmatched teams.It isn't so much what you do, but how you do it that gets you the penalty. If you're in front of another player and get your stick to trip him while you're going for the puck, it's less serious than if you sneak your stick in front of him from behind and trip him while going for the puck.

That. And we've generally adopted older (or reported as older) dogs. We took in Baby (along with BooBoo) as a foster knowing she'd never be adopted. She was missing many teeth, and had a bad heart and seizures. Still it really hurt when she died 2 weeks after we took her in.

Ages and breeds, especially for strays, are just guesses. And Jack Russell Terrorists get the blame for a lot of smaller mixes.

Yep, playing a man short is the penalty. A clean check on someone with the puck is ok, using your shoulder or hip. If you use your stick on the body(hooking, high sticking or cross checking) or your leg (tripping) or checking someone who does not have the puck (interferance) or your elbow (elbowing..go figure) you get a penalty. There are other infractions too.

Seriously, pinch together the cleft area under your nose. Not only does the pain go away in a few seconds but so does the knot that can stay there all day.

If he gets them often though, he needs to eat more bananas. Getting them frequently is a sign of low potassium.

My BIL sent me video of Ryver walking (he turns 1 on April 6 and has been walking for at least a month!) Nikki did not listen. I told her to push him down!Awwww! and LOL!!!

Snaps (so feel free to skip over) from this morning after our Non-winter storm...

*GASP!* I NEVER skip over your posts! Snaps or no!
Lovely snow pics, and nice digi sammich!

We have a beautiful new animal shelter here, and I decided to give myself a tour today. It's really very nice, and it was really time well-spent. I saw lots of beautiful dogs, and wished I was in a position to take a few of them home.

I was struck by a couple things:


3. Every dog there deserves a real home. I felt very inadequate after leaving. The old dogs touched me the most. Their future is probably pretty bleak.

GAAAAAAH.


I should have stayed home. :( Amen. And (((((hugs))))).
It never gets any easier.

Yeah... I, too, made the mistake of visiting the local animal shelter once, many years ago.

I don't know how C@ does it and still stays sane! She's much stronger than I.



It's not a mistake to visit the shelter. If it brings some comfort to the animals, and some awareness to the people, it can never be a mistake.

And I'm not sane.

By her own admission, she cries a lot.^^ that.

For what it is worth, Chief, I don't think you should have stayed home. By observing the plight of these pups, you are more aware. By being more aware, you can share that awareness, in many kinds of ways. There are many ways to affect change, obviously we can't all bring home 20 dogs, no matter how deserving. But that doesn't mean we can't say something to 20 people, who may know another 20 people and so on and so on. And then who knows, maybe one or two of those will think twice about not spaying their pet. Or, may choose to do the same thing you did and visit a local shelter and choose a new pet from there. *shrug* We are small in the big scheme of things, but that in no way means we cannot do big things in small steps.

I am glad you went and visited. And I bet you made some pups happy with your attention :DWell said, Terri. I agree wholeheartedly.

I'm still not sure how a dog will fit into our lives, and we won't make any decisions till we see how things work out with Cinderella. I did see the shelter is looking for volunteers, and depending on whether or not we qualify, or can even work it into our schedule, we might do something like that.Volunteering is good. I warn you though, it is very very hard. You will get attached to dogs that will get put down. (Is your shelter a no-kill?) It's devastating.
But so worth it if you can make their last few days a little better.

Part II: *holds up score card* 10!!!! YAY BECKY!!!


That. And we've generally adopted older (or reported as older) dogs. We took in Baby (along with BooBoo) as a foster knowing she'd never be adopted. She was missing many teeth, and had a bad heart and seizures. Still it really hurt when she died 2 weeks after we took her in.


You never know though. We took in Sasha, that old deaf border collie thinking that she would be with us till she passed away, and she has a wonderful loving home now. Miracles happen every day.

Quick pop in cause I'm going to bed soon. Evan is sick again with some sort of coughing fit. He just threw up a little bit ago and I had to wash the sheets. :|

Looks like I missed Deb, Max and Steve. :( Hi! if you all come back soon.

I've been breezing through and trying to keep up.

DAN, love the TROlympic posts....I'm sure to scroll real slowly through those. Thanks for the great laughs....well, except for Bobckey :|.

Really enjoyed all the photos, especially the ones of the furry variety.

Dood you have great timing.
Thank you, thank you.....I try.

Dood, you are SO late.
He was wasn't he? Like by seconds.

Story of my life.
LOL!

Had a lady call me today. I took a photo of her and her husband at Christmas time with Santa at one of our events.

Her husband passed away a couple of weeks ago, and that was the last photo that they had taken of the two of them together. She wanted to tell me how much she cherishes that photo.
Good that she was able to have a recent photo.

That is sad Kit but nice you got the shot. I have had several people tell me how much they cherish a pet picture I have given them after it has passed. I heard an acquaintance's horse had passed awhile back and remembered I had a picture of the person on her horse. I printed it large and dropped it in her box with no note or anything.. She was floored and sent me a gushing note saying it was the only picture she had ever had taken of her and the horse, which she had for decades, off the farm they lived on. She said she knew it was me because she remembered me taking the picture and thinking she wanted a copy. There is a little magic in capturing a moment
Great story Zane.

I'm still doing penance for what Lois considers a lackluster Valentine's Day. (When your wife say, "Don't give me any flowers or a card, she doesn't mean it, and I still fall for it after 50 years of knowing her.) Today's 'punishment' was sitting through two hours of a Celine Dion movie, 'Celine, Through The Eyes of the world. (http://www.thehotticket.net/celinedion/?hs308=CLD012)' It's a special event movie, and is in a limited circulation of two weeks, with only 8 performances in each location where it's being show. She sprung this on me this morning, and I didn't have time enough to work up a believable excuse, so I had to go with her.

The first shock was when I bought the tickets. Instead of our normal $7.00 senior discount, it was $20 per person. I tried to convince the ticket seller there was a good chance I wouldn't live through the whole movie as I am very elderly. He said if I didn't survive to the end of the movie, he would be willing to discuss a partial refund when it was over.

The movie covers her world tour from Feb., 2008, to roughly a year later. It's a documentary, and switches back and forth between scenes from her performances, and backstage tidbits. I suspect she had a big hand in the editing, because all the backstage portions deal primarily with what a wonderful, adored person she is, and how gracious and warm she is to those around her. Clearly the world is a better place because Celine is in it.

Her husband appears throughout, and he's obviously a toady. Their little boy is something else. They're raising him to be a 3-year old girl. He's (I think) 8 years old, but has shoulder length hair, and freaks out when they lose his stuffed bunny. He's just the kind of kid you hope sits in the far corner of the restaurant where you don't have to see or hear him.

Let me be clear. I Love Celine as a singer, but I also think that singing should be the only time she brings her vocal chords into play. Speaking of her vocal chords, there is a scene in the movie where they stick some kind of a TV camera down ther throat, and we are treated to a close-up giant screen image of her larynx at work.

The music, as you would expect, is pretty good, and she dancing and costumes are interesting. Unfortunately, the closeups on Celine are terrifying. That woman must practice gurning in front of the mirror.

Scintillating.

I suspect she has some sort of an unspeakable physical ailment that mandates she stand with her legs spread as far apart as possible. Her skirts are very short, and beyond that, I am left to wonder if the doctor told her to get lots of air or something. It's weird.

The best part of the movie is the end. I explained to Lois on the way home in the car, Valentine's Day is officially over.

Anyway, I am going to make sure we do flowers, candy, and a dinner next year. For all I know, Wayne Newton is planning a movie, and I'm going to do whatever is necessary to make sure I don't have to go.
Thanks for the heads up.....you should really consider writing movie reviews. :lol:

Wow Chief....no male should ever have to listen to Sealion Dyin'! Just the thought of paying money to be tortured makes my skin crawl.
ROFLMAO!! I've never heard that name variation!

Update. The lady from animal control called today, and I told her I was interested in adopting the Shepherd. She said she already had two names on an interest list, but she would add mine as well. She said Cinderella was doing well, and they expect her to make a full recovery, however they cannot put her up for adoption until they get a court order. Also, they consider her 'evidence,' and will probably keep her until they finish prosecuting her former owner. That could take a couple months.

*sigh*

At least it looks for sure that her life is going to be vastly improved. I'm sure whoever adopts her will love her to pieces.
Well, it's good that her outlook appears to be bright.

Just a couple more events....

The same thing happened to Vincent. Remember him? The little white toy poodle that we got a few months ago?
He was all shaggy and grossly matted and filthy. But oh so raggedy cute.
Then he got his 'classic poodle cut' and looked like a little froo froo dog. :lol: :lol:

He should have bought me a drink first at least before smacking my butt. :|

Well, time for me to head on out. Want to try to get into work early so that I can leave early. And hey....it's supposed to snow here in San Antonio. :rolleyes:

Although, this time, they had to shave him almost completely to the skin to get rid of the matting.

The person fostering him has a white standard poodle with the classic froofoo poodle cut. She is gorgeous, even with that hairdo. :lol:

Yeah, sorta. Mari still gets the contractions...at times enough to where she has to sit down from what she is doing. She already stopped working as doc told her to ask off already since she thinks baby will be coming in the next 2 weeks. We go for the next appointment on Friday....so we'll see what the update is then, unless baby comes before that. :lol:

I bet he feels nice though. A friend in CB had a standard poodle that she kept shorn (without the big top knot) and it's fur was so soft. It was white...so it doubled as a sheep in all our Christmas plays.

I can picture Zane popping a wheelie with a Zamboni.:lol:

ZANE not the brother that called, though that brother is responding well to the antibiotics. The brother that called is youngest that just got back from NZ. He abused his alarm clock this morning, hit the snooze alarm about 10 time before turning it off and sleeping until almost 11:00. 2 weeks in a 19 hour difference time zone plus going almost 36 hours with no real sleep, I think he has some serious jet lag..Lol, gotcha

Nice, huh?

LOL!

Your delusions of grandeur look more like Mickey Mouse ears to me. Just saying. lol, ouch

Interesting turn of events.

Sid gets a crown, and Connor loses his family jewels.


Life can be so ironic.:lol::lol:!

Poor boy....he is probably praying he gets neutered.....can't be any less embarrassing than that haircut!Truth.

Yeah, I can't wait to see him. We couldn't even pet him before because he was so sore from the matting.
He looks like velvet in the photos.

Excellent shots!

that's Smokey the bear hun, have you been smokeying something we need to know about?
:lol:

Chelsea, Capri, and Connor went to the groomers today.
Connor went to his new foster home, and because I am leaving for CA in the morning, Chelsea and Capri went to a different foster home and I'll get them on Wed night.

Their foster family has been sending me photos.

Look how sweet.
And look how BIG Chelsea is. She's only about 3-4 months old.
They cleaned up very well! Lookin' good!

Oh my GOSH!

Connor's foster mom just sent us photos.

(Connor gets neutered on Monday. Ignore the ginormous package there that is so TOTALLY 'in your face' :lol:)
HAHA I got a couple of those kinds of shots! :lol: These guys get to keep their jewels though.
