Boca is gorgeous!!! lol - and what a great name. I'm sure her hoomins are glad you let them take him/her home. I saw a video on faceborked ( i think) -- a guy adopted a 3 yr old golden from the shelter - spent 4 weeks training it and when he went to the sotre - he'd take teh golden along. The dog sat out front with a sign - i'm not lost, just waiting for my dad who's in the store. -- that dog wasn't goinna leave with ANYONE but dad. But - the Dad commented, - 5 weeks ago no one wanted him, now after i've trained him for 4 weeks he's wanted by everyone. I have to agree - folks are silly -- just takes some patience to train pretty much every animal. My mom does complain about Copper tho - he's a SLOOOWWW walker. She says he's got the 'boy dog' syndrome of having to sniff EVERY possible spot that some other dog marked before he'll move along. Hope you and Becky had a great day at the beach. **hugs**

OMCC!!! Boca looks just like a dog I returned to it's owner. It was a boy dog named Chester and he was hanging out in front of the neighborhood corner market. I sat down with him, got the girl behind the counter to call the number on his tag and his people came and got him. If Boca is a sweet as Chester was, I don't blame you in the least. I haven't had a dog for years and just holding him and getting kisses was quite a treat!

I was going to mention the donation part but figured that was maybe a little too crass. My sis and I both agree it's way too soon to visit the baby, but Miles was so insistent that she come she was afraid he'd be upset if she didn't. She's already tried offering up advice and counsel but it's all gone over like a lead balloon, so she's going to try and keep that to a minimum and just do a lot of oohing and aahing. I'll have to pass along your "let 'em ripen a bit" comment. She'll get a kick out of that. What? Maybe no Carmel today? Go, you fool!

I had to throw in the smaller glass just to be fair, even tho we both know that was never a viable suggestion. Glad you and your mom enjoyed the movie. I can see where it might be confusing for your dad. The church visit with "special blessings" was funny, to me at least. But if it makes your mom happy, why not? And who knows? =) Are you still planning on going to Carmel? No biopsy results yet. If they don't call us this morning, we'll call them. My sis is headed to LA today to meet her granddaughter. She really didn't want to go this soon as they're still in first-baby panic mode and emotionally frazzled, but her son was so insistent she come that she didn't want to disappoint him. She's flying back on Monday, so I'm sure it will all be fine.

Those two guys are just a hoot! I wish they were on national broadcasts instead of just local. Usually I liked my nanners straight. I sometimes sliced them and put them on my Rice Krispies. They kinda enhanced the "snap, crackle, pop", if you get my meaning. Gotta be careful with those gateway fruits. Plenty more room in the glass always makes it seem like you're getting shorted. Maybe you could try a smaller glass and/or a bigger banana? Or what the hell, just buy two ice creams next time so you can add more and still have plenty left. I like your 'schedule' response. Not only am I not a slave to a schedule, based on your theory, but I now feel much better about my naps! =)

Of course we are! One must take measures to protect what one loves. I don't like 7 am appointments either because it's my quiet time and I usually have other things to do. My nap time is late morning, so I'm ready to go by 1pm. Boy, for someone with no set schedule, I sure have a set schedule. I used to love bananas but I OD'd on them a few years ago and now I don't touch 'em. I'm sure it was very refreshing tho. 8 degrees cooler sure will feel good! I watched the team tribute to Fernandez. Sure was moving. That opening home run was fantastic, too. I see the Giants, Mets and Cards all scored 12 runs yesterday. What are the odds of that happening??!!

I just saw the fire on the news, at least I think it was the same one. They reported that there were a total of 10 fires burning in California. Just tragic. Yep, it was a near thing with the ice cream. Fortunately I was able to rush it to the ER (extra-chilled refrigerator) in the nick of time and it's recovering nicely, thank you! I have no doubt you and Becky would both thoroughly enjoy a beautiful day in Carmel. Those upper 90s are hard to take! Chuck's feeling much better today. His throat's not nearly as sore. Tomorrow we're going to see the pharmacist to discuss his diabetes drugs. I can't imagine that will amount to much, but we'll see. At least it's at 1:00 and not first think in the morning!

Are you comparing the latest pictures to the very young picture of her with Bryan? I wouldn't recognize her if she time traveled over to me. I didn't mean that one, I meant the two different versions of the most recent picture, closely cropped and less so. AFAIK Bryan has never been here and never will be. Good thought though. I have other pictures of the two of them, and they are all from Bryan's Facebook profile. *** (By beckysdad on Sep 27, 2016 at 3:49 PM * I see more of the Syl we knew in the most recent photo. Does Bryan ever visit ICHC? If he does then I'd prefer the former pic with him in it. I think that would be comforting for him.)

I can't figure people out day to day, let alone on a macro scale. Please go to Syl's profile http://profile.cheezburger.com/Sylviag/ and tell me which of the last two profile pictures you prefer. Most recent activity on her DB. *** (By beckysdad on Sep 27, 2016 at 3:37 PM * Good point about the limitations and inaccuracies of online polls and yet my basic premise remains the same. I'd be surprised that the level of motivation would skew towards Trump supporters.)

Seems like every time they show footage of one of those fires, it always looks like bad terrain for fighting them. It seems to be a no-win situation no matter which way they burn. I like your analysis of the debate. Trump is such a mess. I think the ship sailed quite some time ago on him looking open minded on race issues. Women too, for that matter. Hillary and her "mistakes"! That cracks me up. She might have held up better but I doubt if either of them changed very many minds except, like you said, driving the undecided deeper into despair. Boy, you really are an optimist if you thought you could find an article touting the healing properties of ice cream! Then again, this is the web. And we all know how underhanded big pharma is. =) Big accident or something on the way back from the store today. It took me an extra 30 minutes to get home. But the windows were down, the music was playing and I except for worrying about my ice cream melting, I really didn't care. =)

ED " I'm amazed that on political issues respondents skew heavily towards Trump." - ask a professional pollster their opinion of online polls. Here it may prove nothing more than one group is more motivated to answer. When comments were still usable, most all threads tended in the other direction. I place precious little faith in online polls whether they confirm or contradict my opinion.

Nope, no ice cream. I did offer it tho, which I thought was pretty generous of me. The nurse yesterday told him he could eat and drink whatever he wanted, to which he replied that we'd have to stop on the way home for a 6-pack of beer. I assured the nurse he was just kidding. I was going to add that we already had beer at home but figured I shouldn't push it. =) He's still a couple of weeks away from seeing the dietician concerning the diabetes, so he's still avoiding sugar and white foods as much as possible. I've never gone over to that I Can Has Opinion page. I can hardly get on any pages here as they take so long to load and I frequently get stuck, so I just don't bother. If there are that many Trump fans here, I'd rather not know about it anyway. I watched the results on the debate this morning and it sounds like it was pretty much what I thought it would be. Mostly two brats yelling insults at each other and saying whatever they think the voters want to hear without much substance behind any of it. I sure hope you get some good news about that fire. I'm off to the store myself. A good day to drive with the windows down. =)
