Woof

Friday, February 13, 2009

Tired this morning when I got home after a hard night. My pedometer read about 11000 steps before midnight, and about 7500 by the time I got home. I usually walk the pups before I go to sleep when I get off work - I was Soooo tired, I just fed everybody, washed my face & brushed my teeth, and went to sleep. I'd set my alarm for 1700 instead of 1800, so I walked the pups when I got up, and showered afterward. Of course, while I was sleeping, Samurai had a couple of crazy spells, chasing the cats. I guess he wanted his morning walk. His yap can cut glass.

  


Walking to CCR

Friday, February 13, 2009

My MP3 player was up to Creedence Clearwater Revival. As I walked the pups this morning, it started slow, so I warmed up to it, then hit a string of faster tunes to keep me at a fast pace. The last 5 minutes were slower again. What great timing! Couldn't have planned it better.

  


Buttons

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

I wear buttons on my name tag at work. Change them up occasionally. Here are some of them:

Our National Health Care Plan - don't get sick.

The lunatics are in charge of the asylum.

There are more of us than you think.

No whining (the word whining with the No slash over it)

I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather. Not screaming in fear like the people in his car.

Support our Vets - no cuts in benefits.

I'm flexible ... just don't change anything.

Keep watching, I may do something brilliant.

Thank you for deciding what's good for me.

Equal rights are not special rights.

Bumper Stickers:

Beware of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

Born again, and again, and again.

  


Wind Chill

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Another lazy day. Really thought about blowing off the dog walk, but their little faces got me again. It snowed very early this morning, and off and on through the day. No build up here in the Duke City, too warm to stick. By the time the dogs guilted me into walking them, it was cold, dark, and windy. 32 degrees without the wind chill - cut the walk short - 20 instead of 30 - 45 minutes. Pups were surprised cause I whipped them along so fast, but they were willing.
