As everyone knows we are the proud owners of "Cider the wonder dog" she is our last real pet (the fish and turtles don't really count, because if one dies you could go right down to PetSmart and buy another one that looks just like the one that's dead). "Cider" is getting up in years and her legs don't work as well as they used to. When I saw the "PuppyPurse" I knew this would help her through the winter of her years. Just throw her in the harness, sling her over the shoulder and off we go. Now the kids will have to beef up their shoulder exercises due to "Ciders" 60lb weight, but I don't thinks it's nothing that they can't overcome.
Next up, students. Back when I was a wee lad we learned to remember the planets with the following phrase: "My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas". That worked nine planets nine words, simple. Now with eight official planets we need a new phrase and I have come up with it "My Very Erotic Mistress Just Showed Up Naked". Granted it's a little rougher but times have changed and education has to keep up with the times, I'm just doing my part.

New twist in bizarre tale – creep
treated at transsexual clinic
BY MATHEW SCOTT in Bangkok
and ADAM LISBERG in Boulder, Colo.
DAILY NEWS WRITERS
The creep who confessed to killing JonBenet Ramsey had another bizarre secret up his sleeve in the months before his arrest - he was visiting a surgical center that specializes in sex-change operations.

It appears that we are now catless (if that's a word). "Zippy" left out of the house last Saturday and has not been seen since. She has spent the last few weeks acting very strange, sleeping in front of the toilets, letting out strange noises and walking in and out of everyone's legs. "Goose" is thinking that she went away to die, the rest of the family is starting to believe this as well. "Zippy" was a decent cat as far as cats go and was 13 years old, in this house that's a record for a pet.
I took a couple of days off this week and managed to put a dent in the mess that resides in the basement. I installed a pull-up bar so that "H" can practice his monkey boy stunts.
This week also saw the start of school for the kids. "H" headed out for his first day of middle school. No picture of "Goose" because she left way to early for us to see her out.
This is going to get really weird (as if it's not weird enough already) before it's all over.

No this is not one of those cheezie contests where you have to buy 35 different items thats total cost is equal to 3 iPods, this is legit.
Kris (with a K) & Betsy host a three episode per week podcast direct from Naperville IL (one of the top cities to live in I might add). They are funny, and I know funny and are worth a listen. They are approaching their 300th episode and want to add 300 NEW listeners by that 300th show. So what better grassroots marketing campaign than to give something away. In this case they are giving away iPods, four of them.
Now for the un-knowing you don't need an iPod to listen to a podcast you can listen to their show right from their website or download it and listen of your mp3 player of choice, it's that easy.
Even "The Wife" enjoys listening to them and is somewhat really caught up in their adventures.
OK, so why and I pimping this? Well if you click on the graphic above it will take you their 300 by 300th page where you will fill out some new listener information at the bottom of the page you will see my name as the referrer. If you are the 300th or if your name is drawn, both you and I receive an iPod. Pretty easy, huh................
Give them a listen and while the whole show archive is superb a great place to start would be show #235 "The Vacation" show.
They are just like you and I only funnier

Leave it to the fine folks at "Duluth Trading" to solve it with their long-tail shirt. Now this shirt has been out for a while but now it's improved: thicker fabric and no more scratchy neck tag. Man why didn't someone think to remove those neck tags about 15 years ago.
Buy you one of these, cut the sleeves off and you're ready for your debut on "COPS"

OK, I'm not 50 and I didn't write this but that doesn't make it any less funny.
1. Never under any circumstances take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

I am not flying this week, thank God, imagine the headaches that are happening at the security lines as you read this. But here is my concern TSA is seizing all of our liquids due to the possibility that they might explode. So now what does TSA do with there suspicious liquids? They throw it into a whole big trash can full of suspicious liquids that might possibly exploded. That's gotta be the safest thing you could do right?
Just think I figured this out on my own and I don't even work for the TSA.

I bought a new toy (if that's the right word) for myself, a set of "HOIST" dumbbells. 10 - 75lbs of adjustable iron in 5 lb increments complete with a nifty stand. This takes up less space than 14 sets of dumbbells and less chance of stubbing my toe on one of them.
I looked at the "Bowflex" dumbbells nice design but (3) negatives
- Real expensive and I mean real expensive
- They only go up to 50lbs. (not that I'm that strong)
- They're plastic, if you drop them they crack
