It's been a long week. I've been off for it all, since my company takes the week between Christmas and New Years off, worldwide. Nice. I've tried getting as many projects done as I could, one small, one big per day. I have a stack of tile in the garage - the floor for the … Continue reading Job Satisfaction
Tomorrow is trash day. So before I got busy on my afternoon project, I emptied the trash in a bag to take out. But I didn't notice that Jasper had followed me back into 'officer territory'. The bedrooms are off limits to the dogs, and are the realm of Bonzai, my ancient cat. Must have … Continue reading Jasper “F-s” around and finds out.
Herself bought the dogs a few small rawhide bones to keep them occupied while we had guests over for dinner after Christmas. Far as I can tell, the only part left is the knot from one end. It's about the size of a golf ball, maybe smaller, and there's no reason on this planet it … Continue reading Funny Stuff
Christmas was a huge day here. First all the kids and grandkids were coming so we had to board Jasper and Aria. Jasper is a spaz and the grandkids get scared of him. Aria really doesn't like little people, and not being able to hide in her crate in quiet, she gets unpredictable. Well, unpredictable … Continue reading A big day, all around.

The series got me thinking that I plan on roasting some beasts for Christmas dinner, and I may need a new carving knife. Hell, I'm a guy. Any excuse, right? I have a cheapie … Continue reading Finding a Carving Knife
I'm sitting here editing tons of video. So I have time on my hands. As long as the audio plays OK, I don't really have to stare at the video the whole time. Thank God! This stuff is dry as toast. I was pondering a Christmas post, but as usual those on my blogroll do … Continue reading Merry Christmas
Jet will guard my wife whenever she's in the front yard. Usually he does this by holding vigil at the side gate. I guess here, he has a better view. Interestingly, he'll watch me for awhile if I'm out there, but will get board and lumber off to snooze or play with Jasper. Also funny.... … Continue reading Fun Dog Pic Friday
I had a job interview the other day. I'm not really looking, but I had a request from LinkedIn, I had interviewed with them in the past, so I figured, why not. The requestor is a pretty well known network security shop, after all. Indeed. I found out though since the same damn thing happened … Continue reading Should’ve Known Better
ZMan had a great piece up today about our interesting times. He has epic moments of clarity from time to time. On top of the normal problems they face; they have a president who is so out of his mind that mocking him seems cruel. A big part of his low approval numbers is an … Continue reading What He Said.
Not giving it up Of all the toys my dogs have, the one thing that will keep them entertained for hours is any sort of ball, usually a tennis ball, stuffed in a sock. Easy to throw, they have a blast with it. One of the local talk radio guys down here had the best … Continue reading Funny Dog Pic
