Double checking your handiwork sure paid off big time. That would have been some kind of mess, all right. Sounds like it's a good thing that McGinty's mama doesn't walk him all the time, but it's a good thing that she got to see him in action with Becky. It might help her confidence level a little to know that she doesn't have to be a concerned with his behavior as she thought. Of course, that behavior had a lot to do with how you and Becky behaved. What a shame he and the shepherd don't get along. And yeah, rather surprising, too. Maybe the shepherd gets tired of his exuberance. Hopefully they'll both mellow out as the years go by.

Ah, so he's alert to possible physical problems, too. That's even better. He certainly impressed me. Yeah, good luck getting people to see another's point of view. Hah. Sometimes there's a pre-game knee ache, but that's not a bad thing as I can take an Alleve or two before I go. They don't do a whole lot but they do help some. Our kitchen disposal broke the other day, so Chuck went to Home Depot today and got another one. Probably didn't do his hands any good but at least he got it in and it's working. I told him he could have a beer for all his hard work. He just laughed and said "Oh, thank you SOO much!"

Those are good points you brought up, and were true in the two couples I watched. Seems to me that one of the couples had been together long enough to know that the wife's allergies might be a problem. Plus one guy had lived with their cat before hand. Did it just turn into a little monster after it started living with him and his wife? I find that a tad hard to believe. Cats don't change overnight. Regardless, they all seemed eager to do whatever it took to solve the problems. And Galaxy was great to listen to. Anybody with a problem cat or who might be considering getting one should really watch the show. They could learn alot. Well, off to Wally World. My knee's already getting cranky! =)

Oh, Galaxy is great! Just a little understanding about the nature of a cat sure goes a long way towards a good relationship with it. I can really see where those owners were coming from and am a little amazed that they put up with as much as they did from their cats. It's nice that the cats will be happier now and make much better pets. I hope a lot of viewers with problem cats watch the show.

Ah, good old frozen corned beef! LOL! Well, that was nice of her to offer. Being an old(er) white person, I think I probably would have enjoyed that show, too. It sounds like it was done really well. I'll definitely check out the cat from hell show. I'm curious to see how good this guy is. Looks like our cold snap is going to last longer than I thought - three whole days! OMG! I'd better go the store and stock up on milk and bread! =)

Chuck did sleep better but it's too early to see how truly effective the shots will be. He's actually feeling less pain today, too. He told me today the name for his condition is 'trigger finger', so I looked it up. I won't bore you with the details but it's pretty common and fixable. No meat for dinner, eh? Well, you're a good son to go along with it and you can always chow down on some sausage when you get home if mac & cheese just doesn't do it for ya. I hope the Irving Berlin thing is entertaining. Not really my cup of tea but he put out some good music. I've watched the Dog Whisperer before and sheesh, I just end up getting mad at most of the owners. I'll have to look into My Cat from Hell, just to see what this Jackson guy does. Gotta admire anyone who can strike up a rapport with cats! Yeah, Saturday is going to be downright COLD! At least it's only one day, and we won't have to go anywhere.

Scarce is right! I'm glad he had a good showing yesterday. Seems at least some voters are coming to their senses. Chuck's hands haven't improved all that much yet, but it's too soon to really tell anything. He did manage to eat dinner without any problem. Now we'll see how much sleep he got last night. I didn't wake up to find him roaming around the house, so that's a good sign. What's on the agenda at your folks' house today?

Glad you're feeling better! We're getting ready to eat dinner now and I just know I'm going to do a fast fade after that. The news was pretty good - better than we were expecting, really. Even if he has to have another surgery, the doc said it was a minor one and ought to take care of the problem once and for all. Kasich has really gotten my attention lately. I need to do a little research on him, I doubt if he'll get the win but just the fact that he has risen in the polls is encouraging. I'd love to have someone I could actually feel at least fairly good about voting for instead trying to decide between two lousy candidates again.

Did you finally succumb to a nap after breakfast? Better that than dragging around all day trying to stay awake. I gave up and will probably fade around 8 or 9 this evening. As for Chuck appointment, the doctor told him he's got ligament damage in both hands, 'severe' in the middle finger of his left hand and just 'serious' in the pinkie of his right hand. He got a steroid shot in each finger and a brace to wear on the middle finger. He can have one more shot in each finger if this one doesn't clear things up, which he's guessing will probably be necessary. He's hoping a second shot will take care of the pinkie at least and guessing that Chuck will probably end up needing surgery for the other one, as it's pretty far gone. Anyway, it all sounds promising, even if he needs one more surgery. At least there was something the doctor could do today to get the ball rolling. Yay!

Well phooey on the crappy sleeping! I know just how frustrating it can be. I got maybe another 30 minutes of sleep before I gave up. Now I can't quit yawning. grr That 2-day excursion to Oregon sounds like a really good idea. You'll be able to pick up a lot of helpful info that way. Syl's hip is worrisome, but otherwise the news was good to hear. Obviously she's stronger now than after the first round. She's not out of the woods yet but the trees seem to be thinning.

So did you make it through those last few hours? I woke up around 3:30 and am about to head back to bed - hopefully I'll be able to get a little more sleep in this morning, cause if not then I'm going to be sleepwalking through the day! Love the latest Sylvia lol from cats! So nice to hear that she got up and out and is feeling stronger after only a week this time/ Sucks about your little monsters! You'll definitely want to figure the space factor in when you move. Chuck's appointment is for 10 this morning. We're both nervous and excited and ready to get it over with!

It's funny how the pictures can either strike you or not. Sometimes I have what I think is a good lol but then somebody comes along and does it better. Ah well. I hope your newest idea takes shape. Oh boo, you're losing two shows! I feel for ya. A fence to keep the bears out, eh? Wow, that's rich! Haven't you ever been to a zoo, lady? I'm pretty sure they even have bears in Florida, too, tho not as big as grizzlies. She'd be wise to do a little research on the local fauna before they move. Good luck on the nap thing. I've tried staying awake all day to sleep better at night and the evenings are the hardest.

My days and nights have really turned around too, especially since Chuck's had such a hard time sleeping. I didn't make it all the way through Gaga's rendition. We turned the sound off after a while. We could sense what was coming. Manning's interviews have been entertaining, if not revealing. Cam pouted like a big baby during his one short interview. I hope your Becky cookie dough LOL makes it. It was my fav, tho they were all good. I like your latest one, too. Poor Carolina pooches! They were all set for the big parade. =( I need to try and find some lol-making magic. It's been a while since I even attempted one. Just haven't felt too funny lately. Chuck's doc appointment is tomorrow - finally! Keeping my fingers crossed, especially since he can't cross his these days.

Well, that always messes with your morning, doesn't it? Wake up and have to get right to the morning walkies. ACK! The Boss would have been better, no doubt. I watched very little of the half-time show. I think Lady Gaga's eye shadow scared me off. Sheesh, it looked at times like her eyes were bleeding! Carolina's defense did well but Denver's defense was incredible. They had to have been worn out but they kept the pressure on until the very end. I think Cam was in shock when it was all over. You know he's got to be hurting from all those hits. Anyway, I'm glad Manning got his win and can retire on top. Oh hey, look at you with another FP! Way to go!

Oh yay - it's 529 here too! I was looking for GAC but I don't think I went that high up Shelters back then were not nearly as regulated as they are today, if they were even regulated at all. I take it those are your neighbors with the grandkids who like to yell a lot? That's got to suck! Denver's really kicking some ass so far! Oops, Manning just got sacked. Gonna be a real battle!

MsGaga did well with her Star Spangled banner - other than that ugly eye shadow. I knew she had teh pipes --but worried she'd get too 'artistic'.

I figured Curry had some good seats. Who better to beat the drum? LOL Yeah, I really wish there was something we could do for Syl, too. I understand that we can only just sit and wait, but I really hate it. I went through the station guide on our TV and didn't see anything even close to that channel. I'll have to look again later, or maybe I can find it online at AT&T.com. They never send us updates on our channel listings. I've been switching over to the Puppy Bowl now and again. They're all so adorable! One even came from the Dumb Friends League in Denver, which I visited once way back when with my older sister. We were so appalled at the horrible condition the animals were kept in that we both burst out crying and walked out. I'm amazed the place survived. I'm going to see if it's on line too and check it out. Surely they've made massive improvements. Have you been able to air out your house today? You had said the weather should be nice and warm.

The not-so-great thing about being a Dubs fan is that if you get up at 5 after the hour, you have to wait for the Dubs highlights until the next hour. =) I wouldn't be surprised if they show Curry at the game today. I'm sure he won't be sitting in the nose-bleed section. I'll have to look up the Great American Channel. I really would like to see the Bend segments, if nothing else. I'm hoping we get word from or about Syl soon, too. Even when she gets her strength back she'll be busy tho, what with all the work they're doing on her. The waiting is hard!
