Thanks about the lol! You can sure see from that video why I was a little nervous around all those puppies, being only 4 years old, but aren't they adorable little butterballs! I don't remember if Cindy was a leaner. Maybe she knew better than to lean on me, as I wasn't all that much taller than her and probably weighed less. Wow - rain AND thunder?!! And coming in from the east! That's all unusual for you! We'll be nice here til Monday or Tuesday and then it looks like more rain off and on the rest of the week. Sure has been a nice break.

Well, I thought I'd throw a couple of tennis balls out into the yard and whoever brought one back got a treat. As soon as they all saw the "good dog" get a treat tho, they mobbed me. So I gave the others a treat and then put them away for a while until I could sneak the treat giving. Guess I'm out of practice. =) Sure glad to hear I have a few good years left before the "Denny's bug" bites me! Great danes are super cool dogs! I still remember the one we had when I was little. She had 11 puppies and I was actually a little afraid to go into the room they all stayed in. They were pretty overwhelming to a toddler! Boy they were cute, tho. Oh, I keep meaning to mention that Chuck's hands, according to him, are "a tiny bit better". *sigh*

I don't think they would have allowed toddlers into the concert. =) I figured you might have written something yesterday that I never received. Either that or you had a whole bunch of chores to do over at your folks. As it was, I had to run to the post office and stopped by the DMV to renew the Corolla's registration. Lots of waiting in line! Susan called after that and I went over to visit her. She's keeping her older daughter's two pooches for the week while they're on vacation, so I spent the afternoon entertaining the gang while she ran errands. Fortunately she's got a big fenced-in back yard for them to burn off excess energy, tho they all kept wanting to come back inside, probably to see how many treats they could get out of me. =) Today I've got Wally World, but that should be a relatively short trip. I'm holing up at home this weekend! Ooh, the G-men sure gave up a lot of runs last night! Ouch!

The Shark - couldn't remember his nickname. Good pitchers who can bat are great. Sorry about the Giants losing. Ah, Janis! I've seen a documentary about her too - might even have been the one you saw. She's one of Chuck's all-time favorites. Mine too, for that matter. I got to see her perform in Denver eons ago. She had her bottle of Southern Comfort with her, of course. It was a fantastic performance. Yep, car's done and it only took about half an hour. Of course, they didn't have much to do. Afterwards we got our free carwash with no waiting, so that was good, too. Tomorrow I've got to get my sis's b-day present in the mail. I just got her a supply of the Kona coffee from the gourmet foodie shop across the street. We're at the age where we just don't want any more "things" for our b-days, but she loves that coffee. I sure hope it doesn't get lost in the mail!! That would be just too weird!

Actually, I didn't do the last Sylvia lol. I should have been more clear about that. I had some ideas of how to do one but never got any farther than finding a picture and copying down Syl's last message to transfer it to the pic. The "pincushion" lol was all cua's doing. And better than what I had in mind at that. The Dubs certainly do make a lot of comebacks to win games. Glad this was one of them. Wow, Samard... should try not to get so frustrated with one bad at-bat! He did his part. To-do list not as long today but we're going to be taking our shiny new car =) to the dealer for it's "6-month or 5000 mile" checkup and who knows how long that will take. Hopefully we won't be stuck there too long. We're not anywhere near 5000 miles so maybe they'll be able to whip right through it. All depends on how busy they are with other cars. We could always come back but I'd rather just get it over with.
By Fauxpaws on May 4, 2016 at 4:50 AM
Well, I never got a chance to get back on line yesterday, but I did get a lot of things accomplished at least. =) Sorry you had the Overslept Blues, too! I managed to get my Syl lol together but not posted so cua helped me out this time. He should be able to do the Syl lols again full time in a week or so, which is probably a good thing because he does a better job than me. Glad to see you were able to finish that wild and crazy bouganvillea. You're now officially cleared of any more yard trimming duty for at least a week. Mattise sounds like a beauty all right. Those one blue eyes on huskies are always so striking. I made it through two and a half quarters of the Dubs game last night and just couldn't stay awake to watch the end, so this morning the first thing I did was turn on ESPN hoping beyond hope that they pulled out the win. Was I ever pleasantly surprised! Seems Steph will have at least one more game, if not two, to get his knee completely healed now. He sure makes a great cheerleader! And I see the Giants got the win, too! Nice!
By Fauxpaws on May 3, 2016 at 5:46 AM
ACK! Overslept this morning, not that I didn't need the sleep, but now I've got a gazillion things to do and am already behind. Got some more news on Syl via cua and need to make another lol. Those take me a long time to do. Did you make some good progress with that bouganvillea? Sounds like it was trying to take over! That's a shame about your neighbor, Al. It always sucks when bad things happen to good people. I'm glad he has a pooch. Dogs will nevr do you wrong. Mattise is certainly an original name! I like it. Gotta run... TTYL

LOL <groan> It would be nice for women if they could just pop out a baby like that without the wait, but where's the fun in that? Birth control would be worth it's weight in gold. Yeah, sis has a large yard to mow. She also takes a good number of breaks to jump in the pool and cool off. =) Still, I would much rather have a place along the lines of what you're thinking about. She loves it tho, so more power to her. The sun keeps trying to pop out but it's not making much progress. It's nice and cool out at least. Very nice on the balcony.
By Fauxpaws on May 2, 2016 at 10:20 AM
I was talking about just the grassy yard part surrounding sis's house, not all the fields. She'd never tackle those fields herself. Mowing her lawn alone on a riding mower takes several hours. Wow, I sure hope that dad didn't decide to actually move his family to a farm! Too funny! As for the single mom, she really should think about the future. Maybe she should spend a couple of days with my sis to get a feel of how much work is involved. I don't think I'd want to be wiping old George and all of America off the game map either! What's life on Alpha Centauri like? Is it populated with good looking female aliens? =)
By Fauxpaws on May 2, 2016 at 6:30 AM
Klay is amazing, any way you look at it! I think you're right when you say even you would be tired of all this rain. It's been at it all morning again but it's finally clearing out. Here anyway. Looks like sis is in for another wet day. I can only imagine what her grass looks like, and she's got a really big yard! So have you finished your new house plans yet?
By Fauxpaws on May 1, 2016 at 3:12 PM
A double win day for your teams! Klay was great. I think I heard it was his highest score ever? Lillard was really good, too. Didn't see any of the Giants game but glad to hear they won. It really has been a wetter than normal spring around here. I'm amazed people aren't sprouting fins.
By Fauxpaws on May 1, 2016 at 10:46 AM
Sure right about the Thunder! I hope the Dubs are ready to play. It's way too wet outside to play. 5 and a half inches of rain will take a while to dry out. I need to get the flower pots set out along the walk in front of our house but they'll be rain soaked and heavy so that will have to wait. About the only thing I can do outside today is clean all of the debris out of the birdbath and hope we miss most of the rain tomorrow. Talked to my sis and her daughter, who's up visiting for the weekend. They got a ton of rain too but no damage. Just a muddy mess everywhere.
By Fauxpaws on May 1, 2016 at 4:26 AM
Well, if the Spurs keep playing like they did last night, you'll get your wish. We've had more thunder around here than showed up at the game last night, apparently. Just gotta hope Steph gets and stays healthy. Yay for nice weather! I'm ready!
By Fauxpaws on Apr 30, 2016 at 2:14 PM
No major messes in the yard, just some additional clutter. I'll have to get the leaf blower out again next week and do some blasting to clean up the driveway and walks, but that's easy enough. I saw the Giants' score but figured I'd not mention it to you as you'd no probably already seen it and said a few choice words. That Spurs/OKC series will definitely be a good 'un. Will you be rooting for Oklahoma? The sun's out and it's really nice. Maybe those storms they predicted for later won't materialize. That'd be good! I saw the big blowups at the Trump rallies yesterday. I thought it was funny he had to sneak in and out!
By Fauxpaws on Apr 30, 2016 at 6:54 AM
Yeah, it was a mess here, but it could have been worse. That really sucks about your rose bush! And just when you'd gotten them all in place again. Can you stick it in a pot and see if it will grow back, or is it not even worth it? Chuck probably has some opinions about the draft but I haven't paid it all that much attention. I did see the Tunsil thing. How weird, and stupid, was that?!! You're right about the hacker tho. Miami said they were already aware of the incident and I think it was a good move to go ahead and take the kid. I would certainly hope he's learned his lesson, dumb s**t. I DID see that about Walton in the paper this morning! I'd imagine it'll take a few years before he can get the team the way he wants it. I hope he does well, too. Just not THAT well. =)
By Fauxpaws on Apr 30, 2016 at 6:29 AM
Well, the storms are finally gone, for now at least. We might get more later this afternoon. The power flickered off and on several times yesterday but just long enough to mess up the alarm clock. It went off early this morning for a while too. I think that was from the wind. At least that was the worst thing that happened. I see Portland won and the Giants got pounded. Ouch!
By Fauxpaws on Apr 28, 2016 at 7:02 PM
I've never been too fond of strawberry shortcake but I sure could eat a big bowl of chocolate dipped strawberries with nooo trouble.. That's a good idea your mom had about the Manhattans. Worth a shot maybe. I'm about ready to hit the sack and it's only 9:00. That's what a 3 am wakeup and no nap will get ya. Just a ball of fire! =)
By Fauxpaws on Apr 28, 2016 at 1:26 PM
I could do strawberry, especially with Hershey's syrup on it, but nothing would ever make me buy spumoni. BLEH! I managed to stay awake enough to only get two cartons, chocolate for Chuck and chocolate mint for me. That should last us until my next trip. =) Too bad that medication isn't doing much good. Probably good that it's keeping his alcohol consumption down at least. A 3-shot Manhattan would probably knock me on my butt. Of course, he's bigger than me and probably could hold it better but still, I hope he doesn't go stronger. Falling really could be serious! Do you think your mom can keep him in check?
By Fauxpaws on Apr 28, 2016 at 7:11 AM
Going 7 games would be great. I guess you can always hope, even if it makes you a little sick to do so. =) Sleep walking is probably a bad idea, not only for the bad dreams but I'd probably end up with 20 cartons of ice cream and nothing else. I can't stand to watch much of the draft either. There's always a draft grading of each team in the paper after it's over and I keep that to help with our FF football picks. And even that isn't always so helpful as they always miss some hidden gems that go in the later rounds. I have a feeling you'll come up with a good Plan B. How did the doctor's visit go with your dad?
