I have tons of these pictures: Jethro with his Teddy We had to recover that stuffed dog, which we bought for a grandkid, before it was destroyed. But the big dude had to have a cuddle first. Now to the pain: Little Dude can't resist a van This is gonna hurt. Hell, it already did. … Continue reading Friday Dog Pic, and a Ride on the Pain Train
Month: November 2021
Today's the day we count our blessings. And I have many. Starting with my beautiful wife, and great kids and grandkids. I'm also thankful for God giving me an amazing mind that can think abstractly effortlessly. Honestly, I'm not bragging. I had a boss tell me once that he was sick of me bringing up … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!
Run by Morons
Stupid, Incompetent, and Greedy morons. I set out to write about this weeks ago, but the stupidity keeps piling in. It never ends. Today the story is that Biden is loosing the oil reserves to combat whatever. Last week, it was a letter to the justice department telling them to look into the oil companies. … Continue reading Run by Morons
Put it in the Box
I have a small SUV that I mostly drive around with the back seats down. And why not? I don't remember anyone actually riding in them. Besides, if I need to drag the dogs someplace, it's ready to go. This way, the seats stay in great shape. But there's a problem, which hit me in … Continue reading Put it in the Box
On Some Level, The System Works
My main 'goto' computer blew a bearing last night with an ominous "POP" sound. Hopefully, it's just a power supply. I'd planned on replacing it, but not right now. It's kind of like idly searching for a new car only to have your 12 year old hoopty blow up or get wrecked in the meantime. … Continue reading On Some Level, The System Works
Funny Dog Pic Friday
I think I'm going to start doing this. It's not like I don't have a few hundred funny moments during the week. I'm not going anywhere, thank you. Every time open my car door Jasper jumps in. Car=Fun, I'm going. Which is hilarious considering the only kind of car rides he's had in months are … Continue reading Funny Dog Pic Friday
Customer Service Part 2, the Upsell
I get crappy service consistently. Mostly it's low paid droids that act as if they are going out of their way to do their jobs and help me. But the other type that drives me nuts is the over-the-top service, especially when they want to run up the tab. Car service is a great example … Continue reading Customer Service Part 2, the Upsell
Cute Dog Pic
Who doesn't like a cute dog? Jasper After a walk and playtime in the morning, the pups find their happy, private places to chill. The two dudes tend to hang together. So what you can't see is Jethro sprawled, literally, halfway across the room on the floor below. What I didn't notice at the time … Continue reading Cute Dog Pic
What Customer Service?
I loathe having to call doctors or companies for nearly any reason. If I can't find it or do it on the web, I'm already frustrated. Doesn't take much for the angry to come out. I'm in the middle of trying to get an appointment for a follow up. And the only reason I'm doing … Continue reading What Customer Service?
A Good Walk
We were away visiting family this weekend, leaving the dogs with my son's friend house/dog sitting. This is infinitely preferable to boarding them. It's vastly cheaper, by several orders of magnitude and it's better for them as they don't have to vary their routine all that much. It also helps that he's been added to … Continue reading A Good Walk
