Poor Hobo

On my favorite morning radio show The Morning Zoo they often talk about pets up for adoption. They find out there is this dog named Hobo that needs a home or he will be put down soon and Jessica thinks she should get it. So she calls her husband while they are on the air asking him about getting this dog, and Jessica's co-hosts (Frankie and Danger Boy) have to give her husband (Kevin) a hard time. SO FUNNY!!!!

The club of lost snakes

The little woman and I were chatting before she had to get ready for work and she came over to look at Salazar our Ball Python. "Ummmm Salazar isn't in there" she says with amazement.

So I proceed to pull everything out of his aquarium seeing if he found a new place to hide and I just couldn't see him... Nope he was gone. Of course I think the worse and assume he is gone forever, but I found him right where the little woman thought he would be. He was in his tanks stand curled up next to the power bar. I was so relieved!!!!! *puts bricks on top of the tank lid*

Here are some pics of the little dude.


Here he is taking a bath after his adventure to help him finish shedding


I am Canadian

The other day I found out that a supervisor at my work named Joe is also from Canada like I am, and what did it make me think of? JOE CANADIAN OF COURSE!



THE BEAVER IS TRULY A NOBEL ANIMAL! As I always do I get stuck on You Tube by following related videos.... I found this one as well and it brought back fond memories of the mother land.

As he walked back to town Jeff couldn’t stop thinking of her, but knew he had to. “I’m better off without her,” he said trying to convince himself.

Birds sang at the sight of the rising sun, and it was as if time stood still in the quiet town. A perfect place to start over.

Well that's a kick in the teeth.

Olympians are ambassadors and examples for their country.... Poor Cuba



"Cuba's Angel Valodia Matos was banned for life from taekwondo on Saturday for kicking a referee...

Leading 3-2 in the men's 80-kg bronze-medal bout against Kazakhstan's Arman Chilmanov, Matos slumped to the floor rubbing his leg and was disqualified for exceeding a minute's injury time, prompting the Cuban's coach to rush onto the mat.

After a heated exchange, Matos struck the referee in the head with a high kick. He also kicked another official before being escorted out of the arena.

A tournament official announced the life ban for Matos and his coach over a loudspeaker a few minutes later.

"It was an insult to the Olympic vision, to the spirit of taekwondo and for me, an insult to mankind," said Jin Suk Yang, general secretary of the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF)." Source

Sweet!

Gas down to $3.89 per gallon... Woo hoo

So hungry!

Well I'm awake and starving *looks in all the cuboards and the fridge* WHERE DID ALL THE FOOD GO!?!?! *stomps his foot* We really need to go shopping because we have nothing to eat, and the plan is that I will start my diet eating healthier once we have gone shopping. Of course I need food if I want to eat healthier!

So maybe today I will be a bad boy for the last time because this being fat thing is getting old ;)

*plots to drag the little woman off to McDonalds for breakfast*

Stupid morning!

The weekends are a wonderful time you can sleep in.... Stupid body waking me up at 6 am *throws a hissy fit*

I'm still tired but I couldn't fall back to sleep and then I hear Gus upstairs whining and howling from his kennel. So I decide to come upstairs to let him out so he doesn't wake up the little woman.

NOW I HAVE THE HICCUPS... @*#& $*%&*^( #*%$&*$

YAY!

YAY I'M GOING TO GO BUY SOME POPCORN CHICKEN!

Do you want a cookie?

For some odd reason I decided to give the dogs a bath today. Well I guess that the reason isn't so odd.... I can't even remember when the had a bath last. They don't stink and they aren't visibly dirty but I thought what the heck.

*Opens the "treat closet" and pulls out a clear bag full of dog cookies*

WHO WANTS A COOKIE!?! AH ROOO ROOO ROOOOOO says our Pug Gus. As I walk across the house and down the stairs to the bathroom Gus and Chloe are bouncing around me in a cookie frenzy excitement.

We get to the bathroom and without hesitation Gus leaps into the tub when I wave a cookie in his face. Not that he would avoid a bath.... Brings back memories of when he was little when the little woman was taking a bath and I hear screams from the other end of the house... "HELP.... BRING A TOWEL!" I walk into the bathroom to find the dog sitting in the little womans lap in the tub drinking the water. It wasn't her idea of a relaxing bath but the cuteness outweighed the fact she had a wet dog in the tub with her.

ANYWAY I digress... Gus is in the tub and Chloe is still waiting for her cookie while bouncing around. As soon as I turn on the water Chloe runs and disappears upstairs, but I really didn't think anything of it because I was now occupied with the bath.

Gus is finished his bath and I release him to run wild in the house, which he does every time I'm done giving him a bath. *Grabs another cookie* "CHLOE WANT A COOKIE!?!" *WHISTLES* "CHLOE COME HERE.... GET A COOKIE" Normally she would come running but I think she is a little smarter than she lets us believe.

So I go upstairs looking for Chloe and she is hiding under the little womans desk hoping that she would protect her. She wouldn't even come out for a cookie! So I had to take her by force so I could torture her give her a bath.

Now Shelly is the only dog left and her bath will take longer because I will have to brush her for about 30 minutes first.

"I don’t need you" Jeff said to himself, knowing that no one was around. "You have him… why are you calling me." Jeff starts to dial her number, but coming to his senses and in a fit of anger he throws it as hard as he can into the creek.

"NOW TRY AND CALL ME!"

Group Therapy

Last week on my favorite radio morning show The Morning Zoo they asked for some advice for one of the listeners. She found a diamond engagement type ring in her husbands car and when she confronted him about it he didn't have an explanation, and just said "I have no idea where it came from."

I think that he would have had a good story planned if he really was cheating.... but I would tell the woman that if she doesn't already have a reason to not trust him that she should take his work for it.

What advice would you guys give?

Robbed of a medal


Tonight I watched the finals for the uneven Bars in the Olympics. It was very frustrating! He kexin and Nastia Liukin's scores tied and the tie breaking rules put the Chinese gymnast (He kexin) in the gold position with the American winning Silver. Now this isn't really what annoys me. Silver is still awesome and the rules put them in that ranking..... but I really think that the breaking of the tie should have been the disqualification of He kexin.

THERE IS NO WAY SHE IS 16.... The documents have been provided to prove it but I wonder what they would do to get her in even if she was underage...... Oh Maybe LIE! *twitches*

Mmmmmm Popcorn Chicken....

*Stares at the Maverick Popcorn Chicken box*

135 Calories
4 g Fat

Wait.... did the box just move? Of course not

10g Carbs

OKAY THAT DEFINITELY MOVED!!!! *opens the box* AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH A MOUSE!!!!! Okay it's not that scary because it was supposed to be a mouse. I think it's odd that the pet store gives you the feeder mice in a popcorn chicken box.

100% White Meat. No Trans Fats

Snake snack

Since we realized that Salazar only wants to eat live mice we have had to drive past the Petsmart near our house to a Petco 15 miles away... Stupid Petsmart doesn't sell feeder mice.

Well today was the day to feed to snake and we thought we would try this little pet store and see what they had. COOLEST PET STORE EVER!!!! They have all sorts of birds, snakes, lizards, turtles, fish, etc.... AND FEEDER MICE!!!!!

At the same time we were getting the snack mouse there was a tattood man biker looking man with long hair getting some mice too... Turns out he lives close to us and also loves animals (especially reptile type ones). He even tried to sell us a Monitor lizard. It would be cool but we really don't have room and/or need for one.

I like meeting fun characters on our errands

Who is this?

As I'm heading to work last night I feel my phone vibrate... I assume that it's the little woman sending me a last love text before she heads to bed and I start work...

But it wasn't....

Random Texter: How you doing beautiful?

Me:
I'm great who is this?

Random Texter: Johny you forgot about me? Tall dark handsome *and apparently full of himself*

Random Texter:
You don't remember me

Me: I haven't had this phone for long... Who do you think I am?

Random Texter: Sorry I just looked at the number saved the area code wrong and I almost sent pictures WOW so sorry.

It would be so very disturbing if he had sent me the pictures I thought he might send someone he calls beautiful.

Dirty Laundry

I head outside to edge and mow the lawn and as I'm putting new string on the edger what do I hear... The hillbilly neighbor lady talking screaming on the phone to someone about the pipe in their front yard and who should pay for it. We found out earlier in the month that there was a leak in the pipe brining water from the main line to their house.

Now overhearing this conversation isn't that big of a deal but she is ALWAYS out there talking on the phone to someone about something so loud that the whole neighborhood can here... I prefer to keep my conversations private

*shrugs*

Manic Monday

How would your friend describe you to someone who has never seen you?

Easy Going and funny

Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why?


My wife might not be the Hulk but I know that she would do anything she could to protect me because she loves me *cheers*

If you died or went missing, who would miss you?

I think the answer to the last question would tell you that my wife would!

Scattering the bits of the photograph on the ground he reached into his pocket to retrieve his ringing cell phone. His heart jumped when he read the caller ID, it was Sarah. He quickly answered but in a moment the pain came flooding back again, and he quickly hung up. Her second call was unanswered.

‘Dear Sarah, SCREW YOU… HOW DARE YOU THINK YOU COULD…’ Jeff stared at what he had written. With a grumble he cleaned the paper with his eraser and sighed deeply.

Jeff reached into his pocket and retrieved a small picture of a beautiful girl blonde girl and started to cry while he tore it up.
