Stiffy brought forth a martini glass,

I'm thinking this diaper thing is not such a bad idea. They could be useful on my long commute, especially when I get stuck in Boston traffic. They might make my khakis look funny though. I'm sure Coco would let me borrow one or two to see if it is worth while. Not sure what I would do with the tail hole however.

For those of you who happen to use a Mac, could you please let me know if you can view this. I want to make sure I am formatting videos in such a way that they can be viewed with Windows or Mac. Thanks in advance!

I plan on celebrating by dressing up the dogs in Revolutionary War garb and having them re-enact the battle on the front lawn. Should be fun.
Ok, so I know this post is going nowhere. I've picked up some sort of bug and although I am sitting at home in my computer room, my head is floating off somewhere in the kitchen. I will more than likely spend my day on the couch, watching television and trying to drown out the noise of the muskets. So much for celebrating.

Then there's the quarters. My mother seems to have gotten the impression that I collect state quarters. She'll hand me over three or four that she has put aside for me. "You must be getting close to having all 52", she'll say, while the whole time I'm thinking about how many minutes I can get in a parking meter for 75 cents. Yes, close to getting all 52 - they must have added a couple of states when I wasn't looking. And of course there will be the rolls of regular quarters for which we will have to go to the bank window so we can cash them in. Last visit she had only one roll but it was enough to merit a trip to the teller.
I'm not sure what is on our agenda for today. But I know one thing. I had better get my arse in the shower before that phone rings. For as much as I may make fun, I know our time together is precious. Tick toc.

1. Could you please pass the kiddie h'orderve?
2. Can you get me a new fork? This one has something on it.
3. Response to 2 - Well, I tried to wash it but I couldn't fit him in the dishwasher.
4. The "I've got your nose" game seems to have gone a little too far.
5. Little Billy won the pie eating contest by a nose.
6. Does anyone have 4 marshmallows?
7. That's the problem with buffets - not enough hands to carry everything back to the table.
8. You think that's bad. You should see where the spoon is.
9. It's all fun and games until someone gets a fork through the nose. Then it's just fun.
10. What the fork?
No worries my friends, the little bugger turned out to be ok:

So I decided I am creating my own sticker. On it will be a picture of me, lounging by the pool, with Belle and Stiffy approaching from the background, fetching a tray of beer and snacks for me to enjoy. And under the picture the caption will read - "I Love My Golden Retrievers".

V-One was doing a promotion at a local pub the other night. In addition to having a yummy Cosmo, French Martini, and fresh squeezed grapefruit and vodka, we also got a cool V-One hat and t-shirt. And honestly, this is really good stuff. I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it. Go V-One!
Looking forward to seeing you at your martini tent at the Eastern States Exposition this fall!

- You can sit by a sunny window.
- You can get a living, 5 pound lap blanket, to keep your legs nice and warm.

The riding lawn mower has a flat tire. The grass is high. And I'm worried what folks are starting to think. All I need now is to lose a front tooth or two and start blaring the theme from Deliverance. Maybe throw an old washing machine on the front lawn.
The best neighbors in the world, McMeaty and McCheesy, came by to lend a hand. I had not taken the tire off yet because I thought I would need more tools, specifically a jack, to lift the mower high enough to remove the tire. So when I got home tonight and McMeaty told me he was successful in removing it, the first words out of my mouth were "Did you have to jack it off?" See, I told you I was tired. I quickly corrected myself and stated "Jack it up I mean, jack it up". Jack off, jack up - it's all the same when you are sleep deprived. Luckily McMeaty and McCheesy are so good natured. I didn't want them to think I was getting a little too personal there.
Oh, and case you were wondering about the nicknames - it's all perfectly innocent. But if I try to explain that now I don't think it would come out that way. Good night.
