Dogs bark...

Sunday, November 11, 2012

The dogs next door get a little noisy, so one day somebody called animal control to complain. When the officers arrived, I heard my neighbor tell them, "Hey, dogs bark. It's human nature."

    Your post reminded me of a Billy Collins' poem:

Another Reason Why I Don't Keep A Gun In The House

The neighbors' dog will not stop barking.
He is barking the same high, rhythmic bark
that he barks every time they leave the house.
They must switch him on on their way out.

The neighbors' dog will not stop barking.
I close all the windows in the house
and put on a Beethoven symphony full blast
but I can still hear him muffled under the music,
barking, barking, barking,

and now I can see him sitting in the orchestra,
his head raised confidently as if Beethoven
had included a part for barking dog.

When the record finally ends he is still barking,
sitting there in the oboe section barking,
his eyes fixed on the conductor who is
entreating him with his baton

while the other musicians listen in respectful
silence to the famous barking dog solo,
that endless coda that first established
Beethoven as an innovative genius.

Billy Collins

  Yeah, and human owners are expected to at least try to teach their dogs when to bark and when not to bark. Sorry your neighbor is falling down on the job.

    I don't mind dogs barking either, but as I know most of your blogs are funny, I re-read it and discovered the "dogs" barking versus "human" nature. BWA HA HA HA!!!! Nice. Keep up the awesome work!

    I'm sorry. sorry I must agree, dogs do bark. It doesn't bother me when they bark, I know some dogs do bark excessively. But I can thank the Lord Honestly that the one time my dogs did, it was shortly after my brain surgery. I didn't feel well and asked my husband to help me to bed, as the surgery had left me totally paralyzed on my right side. Well he closed the door so I could get some rest, after a couple of hours he and the kids were watching tv and the dogs went berzerk. Thank God they wouldn't be quiet no matter how much they were yelled at. They even tried to put them outside and low and behold they tried to tear the door down to get back inside. As it turned out my husband let them back in they then went to the bedroom door and tried to tear it down. I was having a grand mal seizure and not breathing. My family had to call 911 and hold the dogs in the guest bath so the emt's could tend to me and take me to the hospital. So I love to hear those Dogs... emoticon

The sweet taste of long term revenge...

Sunday, November 11, 2012

After 17 years of marriage, a man dumped his wife for a younger woman. The downtown luxury apartment was in his name and he wanted to remain there with his new love so he asked the wife to move out and then he would buy her another place. The wife agreed to this, but asked that she be given 3 days on her own there to pack up her things.

While he was gone the first day, she lovingly put her personal belongings into boxes and crates and suitcases. On the second day she had the movers come and collect her things. On the third day she sat down for the last time at their candlelit dining table, soft music playing in the background, and feasted on a pound of shrimp and a bottle of chardonnay. When she had finished, she went into each room and deposited a few of the resulting shrimp shells into the hollow of the curtain rods. She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

The husband came back with his new girl and all was bliss for the first few days. Then it started, slowly but surely. Clueless, the man could not explain why the place smelled so bad. They tried everything; cleaned and mopped and aired the place out. Vents were checked for dead rodents, carpets were steam cleaned, air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in, the carpets were replaced, and on it went.

Finally, they could take it no more and decided to move. The moving company arrived and did a very professional packing job, taking everything to their new home...including the curtain rods.

    I don't think Boner and the Repubs are ready to compromise at all. The next few weeks will be interesting.

    I didn't have a chance to watch the video yet, but the article had some nice info in it. I'm glad he has a more concrete plan to get things done this term. He is a man who likes to take his time and make sure the decision is right before moving forward (which is a good thing) but some people weren't happy with him because he didn't seem to do much. Now that he has his sea legs so to speak, I expect great things from him! Thanks for sharing. I'll watch the video later. Keep up the amazing work!

Flotsam (Jetsam's out to lunch)

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Q: How many politicians does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Two. One to assure the public that everything possible is being done while the other screws it into a water faucet.



Mother asks little Johnny, as they wait for the bus, to tell the driver he is 4 years old when asked because he will ride for free. As they get into the bus the driver asks Johnny how old he was. "I am 4 years old". "And when will you be six years old?" asks the driver. „When I get off the bus" answers Johnny.

  Yes. Sarcasm is almost a dialect in the northeast. I have seen too many sarcasm fails not to agree with this.
