<font face='Comic Sans MS'>dog breath! my dog had been on a walkabout and came home running towards me looking very happy. i bent down to greet her and she came up to my face. i almost threw up when i smelled her breath. she had found a nice and juicy (that´s disgusting to us) poop in the woods.
tvm i´m wondering why i agreed to go on a weeklong tour to a still-open-for-the-season ski hotel and leave the pre summer heat at home.
oh now i remember, good money. still...there´s snow there...
so i´m leaving on a train at 3 am(!) tonite.

Listen to YesJo, Stout. She looks like an expert on dogs.

Dogs can be really weird Stout, my dogs thankfully don't eat poop but one eats paper towels and tissues and toilet paper all the time. I'll catch him and he looks and me guilty and tries to walk away. What is that? I hate dogs that eat poop, it's disgusting and they have bad breath.

TVM, I'm missing out on a lot of posts here until my next day off (Friday).

My earlier post in this thread about campaigning to reinstate my local station's rock show has been snowballing bigtime! There is a petition being signed at local gigs, an online petition (www.roughjustice.info), a ton of research on my part finding out about the inner workings of UK independent radio, and a database of approaching 60 people (and growing daily) who I keep in touch with via email. Hoping for a meeting with the station's programme director, (who has been overwhelmed with the reaction to the axing of the show!)

My yahoo group thing never took off though, but just as easy to send emails to interested parties.

Anyway, will catch up here in a few days <img src=pix/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well,Jo,I think it`s because you haven`t given us any indication otherwise. As long as you don`t eat poop, this is all fine for me. I`m still shaking my head at that thought. And to think my girl was always trying to thrust that dog in my face to lick me. Yuuccckkkk!!!!
TVM, I`m just enjoying some quiet time while posting. Time away from the NYC ratrace demands quiet time. Quiet time is rare like the golden nuggets the settlers found out in California during the mid-1800`s. I`m not talking `McDonalds' either. The ones that pay big money,not the ones that are fake,processed shit from God knows where.
I think I`ll stop. I`m still sick over seeing what i saw with my girl`s dog. Christ,I worked in the O.R. and never got skeeved,but dirty picnic tables in the food court of a mall gross me out and a dog eating turds does the trick. Yes,I`m a bit of a germophobe.

TVM I'm really tired. Husband woke me up at 9:30 am (right as I fell asleep) to let me know that after months of searching he had found THE VEHICLE.

I cussed at him, tried to go back to sleep and couldn't, so I called him back. After hearing his description of the vehicle I agreed that we better jump on this opportunity and make a deal.

The vehicle is sitting in our driveway right now and he's washing it to his little heart's content. It's a 1999 Mercury Mountaineer, has leather seats and kick ass stereo system (tested with Sound Chaser, complete with cha cha cha's for maximum spousal annoyance). It was even under blue book price. Haven't signed the papers yet but we will, tomorrow or Saturday.

Can't wait to get out of that lease. Never again!

Got a busy weekend planned, so I may not see you guys for a couple of days. Or I might, just not as much as normal. Like you guys would even notice if I stopped posting for a day! hee hee

PC, fighting hubby for keys to the new vehicle

TVM I'm hoping y'all will keep my 7-year-old friend Philip in your thoughts. Phil took a spill off the monkey bars yesterday and - get this - broke his femur. OUCH. That's the big bone in your leg that runs from hip to knee.

School just let out yesterday, so it looks like Phil won't be having much of a summer.

He was in surgery last night and they got his leg put back together, four pins and lots of morphine later. Hopefully he will get to come home sometime today.

Bad news is, no health insurance right now. <img src=pix/icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>

He's a tough little kid, and I'm sure he'll be up and running around before he's medically cleared for it. A real chip off the old block, he is. Stout, I think he has a lot in common with your mom. <img src=pix/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

TVM i'm feeling lucky me and the wife are alive and uninjured. Coming back from an afternoon's shopping last Sunday, waiting to turn right into our village, we were rear-ended in the car (Ford Escort) by a drunk doing 50-60mph in his Passat, shunted across the road, clipped a Merc going the other way and ended up on the verge. Not a scratch - no whiplash, nothing. Got out the car, it was trashed front and rear. Nobody hurt, but the police and paramedics were furious with the piss-artist. His wife turned up with a small kid to sort him out. How can these idiots do such stupid things?

So, have sorted out all the Insurance details and so on, hired a car while I wait for the dosh (a Fiat Punto - I hate it!), and have been poring over the details of what the safest (European) small family car is to buy. Suprisingly its not a Golf or Volvo, but a Renault Laguna (2001)is the only car getting 5 stars in the Euro NCAP Crash tests. So I want one now!

Wierd thing is, I was playing "Fragile" at the time. And it was my old Nan's Birthday (although she's been with the Angels since 1986). Perhaps she was watching over us?

That's it for the week, i'm off home.

Enjoy the weekend!

Simon

I feel a big 'thumbs-up' to your Nan is in order Simon!

I remember when I got knocked off my bicycle when I was about 15 - the bike was written off and I was fine; but about an hour after the event I got the shakes big time. As a result, that occasion was the first (and only) time my mum <i>made</i> me drink a large brandy!

Glad you and the wife are okay <img src=pix/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

Thank god you guys are o.k. and thank god Phillip is going to be o.k. Some weird stuff around here happening also. There has been accident after accident in the place where my husband got hit last week. My neighbor died and another one got critically injured.

PC, I didn't know you had children! How many, how old, boys and girls?

Sjeffs,glad to hear you and your wife are okay. YesJo,sorry to hear about your neighbor. And Changer,sorry to hear about your Phillip He`s young and he will bounce back ok. I`ll say a prayer.
Speaking of my mom,she is not 100 percent with that ankle. I feel she should get it checked out,but she never listens to me.
TVM, I should have been out with a few of my co-workers,but a few of them begged off. Every once in a while we get together over drinks and rip the shit out of the management. `Ripping' is fun,be it `Pablum Phil' or the shitheaded managers you work for.
I have loved ones that are not feeling well and my mgt. fails to see that. They tried to get me to work the whole day tomorrow while the rest of the guys would only work half. Saturday is usually a half day for us at Fed Ex;easy overtime. But why should I be the only fool who has to work the whole enchillada when there are vets who seldom work a Saturday? Fortunately,I was able to convince them of my situation and they broke it down to half. There is definite favoritism in this jailhouse and they should rotate the Saturdays amongst the other 44 couriers. My mom is not feeling well and my girl has been sick for quite a while. I`m never around enough for them as it is. This is not what I wanted to do,but when you are pressured like that,you cave in. `We need you', `We need you', is similiar to being told you have to do it,right?
And these snakes have classes within the organization on how to manipulate people. Friggin` scary.

It's OK, Stout; Philip is the son of a family friend and sometimes I feel like he's mine! <img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Jo, I don't have any kids. Just a husband, 2 cats and a dog - three boys and a girl (cat).

Simon, glad you're OK. I hate drunk drivers.

<font color=red><font face='Papyrus'>Let me echo Perp's comment regarding your mishap there Sjeffs. It would appear that you're very much the fortunate son. Speaking of Creedence, I'm listening to "It Came Out of the Sky" @ TVM. Also @ TVM, I'm relishing the notion of three days off...YEAH!! R & R city!!

TVM I'm thinking you people who have a 3-day weekend suck. <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Yesterday I did the "corporate wife" thing (which I hate doing, BTW) and went with hubby to a picnic sponsored by someone at the jail.

Oh my God. I've never felt so out of place in my life. If you can picture me shooting skeet, you've got a great imagination because I can't picture myself doing it but I did it yesterday. Did it badly, but I did it. Give me a rifle over a shotgun any day. At least a rifle has decent sights on it.

So after I showed all these bubbas I didn't fit in by being unable to hit one single clay, they decided to introduce another game that I wasn't even given the opportunity to try. They put a johnboat out in the lake and whoever could ping it with a golf ball won some sort of prize. Guess what, I don't play golf either. I guess I sucked so bad at shooting that they figured I couldn't hit the boat with a golf ball either.

Then we sat down to a meal of banana pudding, baked beans and smoked wild hog. That was the best part of the day. The hog was pretty good, and so was the banana pudding.

We took the dog with us and I was getting really upset because all these bubbas were salivating over my dog. You could almost see them plotting to steal him when I wasn't looking.

You see, Hunter is a hunting dog - blue tick hound through and through. You can tell who's a hunter because they don't ask his breed; they already know. Usually you have to train dogs to tolerate gunfire, but my baby dog didn't even flinch and he was standing right next to the people that were shooting. We were quite surprised because this is the dog that barks at everything that goes by the house that makes the slightest noise. But gunfire doesn't bother him. Just try to figure that one out.

Then there was this big discussion about my hair, because someone my husband works with was in the corrections academy at the same time I was in the police academy. Back then my hair was short and now it is long. I didn't think this was a big deal but they did. "Oh, it's so pretty!" OK, whatever.

Toward the end of the three hours of torture, the dog and I were both getting overheated. I put him in the truck with the air on and hubby went for an airboat ride. That was the only thing I had the slightest interest in doing and it was the one thing I didn't get to do. Airboat rides are cool!

So, I was definitely out of my element. For all my bitching, it was OK. But I made sure I cranked a <img src=pix/icon_yes_yes.gif border=0 align=middle> song on my way out of the parking lot - Release, Release to be exact. <img src=pix/icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

At TVM I'm happily at YT working my way thru the threads and trying to post coherent messages.

I had the week from Hell, work, my daughter was in her 2nd grade play, they did The Little Mermaid, and Kinsey was the cutest little bubble fish to walk the stage, had to see that on tues. and thurs. nites. On thurs, I also had minor surgery in preperation for major surgery, so I wasn't in a great space to see the play that night. Then on friday had Kinseys 8th birthday party, and all the running that entails. Stupid me, I picked my niece up at the party and immediately regretted it, couldn't wait to get home and get horizontal. Today, baked chocolate suicide brownies, started spring cleaning then went to a bon fire at my friends house. It was great to just relax.

I was going to chat, but decided to do the messages first, and chat tomorrow nite. See ya all there!!!!!! <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=pix/icon_yes_yes.gif border=0 align=middle>

At TVM sitting proudly before I go to work having survived my mate's stag do which was an all day event around London. Highlights include him calling his wife to be from a very seedy strip joint telling his prospective wife how much he loved her as <i>Pantera</i> "She will rock your balls" was announced as the next act over the tannoy. She did and I haven't seen a pole put under so much pressure in my entire life <img src=pix/icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle> but we didn't stay long, somehow that stuff just didn't keep the good humour flowing.

Probably better than that was spending half an hour in Marks and Spencer choosing a lacey bra for the false breasts he was wearing. He didn't look too feminine without one. Having said that he looked pretty awkward trying them on with his hands and feet manacled like that<img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.

Afterwards he dropped his kebab on the floor in the taxi and gingerly scraped it back into the pitta bread. It seemed very funny at the time but when we got back into the house he left it on the table and his brother on seeing it said "Aren't you finishing that?". I feel quite guilty now that all we said was "No" . . .

Simon.

TVM I'm glad I had MY trainee tonight because one of the other training officers got into it with her trainee. I've never seen that particular training officer bare her teeth with a trainee but the trainee had it coming because she sassed her training officer. Bad move!

Anyhoo ... mine's going to do very well. I had a major attack of nerves right before I left the house to go to work but I grabbed disc 3 of the YesYears set and cranked it on the way in. By the time I got there I was fine. <img src=pix/icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>
