Happy Birthday Baby Sister!

And you’ll always be my baby sister no matter how grey you get and how many wrinkles appear… not that any are… well, not that you can really see unless you look closely… and that hair dye is doing a great job for the head…

Anyhow, you’ll always be young at heart and that must count for something.

Not something I ordinarily do but…

I had a great experience with a carpet cleaning company here in Anchorage named Thermax Carpet Care LLC. They not only cleaned what little carpet I have left in my house after removing most of it because of animal traffic, but called to let me know that they didn’t think cleaning my area rug was worth what it was going to cost me. Imagine a company so honest they called before costing me a huge sum of money that they could have just pocketed.

Sheldon’s coming soon

The Big Bang Theory has resumed taping. Sheldon (or as we who are his intimates like to call him – Shelly) will soon be back in our homes every Thursday night so that those of us who are completely, unapologetically and forever in love with him will soon have more than reruns to sustain us. Can I get a Hallelujah!

Snowy may be smaller in size but notice that the bigger dog follows him in the hope of figuring out how he won all the toys yesterday.

Oh yeah, and I’m mostly doing this to annoy my cousin Joe…. ok, I may have somewhere between 14 and 60 cousin Joe’s but he knows which one I mean.

Maybe not the brightest bulb in the box

image

I put the cloth bag I use for groceries at the end of the hallway so the next time I go down the hallway to the garage I will take it with me to the car. The bag fell over. I thought nothing of it until I heard Snowy growling and barking. I looked up to see him staring at the fallen bag, growling, sneaking up on it slowly and then running backwards right before reaching it. The bag had him scared to death.

I guess you gotta love them no matter how dim they act.

Oh dear me

Apparently yesterday’s posting has upset the Christian right in town. Oh dear, oh dear. Someone remind me sometime in January when things are slow and it’s dark and cold to worry about this.
