Hands Full Friday Round-Up

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory is a perverse skill. Which it seems our beloved President Joe Biden has in his repertoire. Who keeps top secret documents in his garage next to his beloved Corvette? I might equate the two but the normal… Continue Reading “Hands Full Friday Round-Up”

Approach of Winter Friday Round-Up

Our old boy is sick. You couldn’t tell by looking at him, especially at the dog park. There he trots along with that sled dog long distance gait that he used for his eleven working years. He’s fourteen now with a gray beard but… Continue Reading “Approach of Winter Friday Round-Up”

Bring Me the Dragons Friday Round-Up

The division of labor in our house involves my husband dealing with all canine and feline excrement. He complains about this mightily. But I care not. He spent years carefully tucked behind his newspaper while various toddlers with diapers loaded to the ground waddled… Continue Reading “Bring Me the Dragons Friday Round-Up”

Pet Ears Friday Round-Up

Hercules the Cat carried a full roll of toilet paper in his teeth from the bathroom to the door of our bedroom. We base this, not on forensic evidence, e.g. comparing his bite marks to, say, a certain dog that lives here, but by… Continue Reading “Pet Ears Friday Round-Up”

Staying on the Beam Friday Round-Up

In Milwaukee, officials have taken a courageous stand against porta-potties for homeless people. This seems contrary to basic public health thinking that it’s better to have people pooping in a porta-potty than under a bush, a notion that seems to be widely accepted in… Continue Reading “Staying on the Beam Friday Round-Up”

Stack of Hats Friday Round-Up

My mother bought me brown oxford shoes when I was in third grade and the surprise and embarrassment of those shoes have stuck with me all these many years. I remember this because last night’s writing instructor, teaching about the difference between scene and… Continue Reading “Stack of Hats Friday Round-Up”

11:43 p.m. Friday Round-Up

Beloved sled dog musher Lance Mackey died this week. He was flinty, funny, courageous, and valiant but if you saw him you’d think he’d missed his shift changing oil at the drive-through oil change place on the way out of town. Not that changing… Continue Reading “11:43 p.m. Friday Round-Up”

Love Your Potato Friday Round-Up

It appears that the airbag for the passenger seat of our truck is “off.” So, either this means that the little indicator is wrong or the airbag will actually not deploy if we hit something. Of course, it can’t be ‘diagnosed’ for weeks and… Continue Reading “Love Your Potato Friday Round-Up”

Scratchy Sheets Friday Round-Up

I have a bum knee and it’s added years to my already astronomical age. I wear a brace – the one I bought for $3.18 at the Mitchell, South Dakota, Walmart – so I have that look of an athlete, albeit an aging one.… Continue Reading “Scratchy Sheets Friday Round-Up”

What’s Behind the Green Door Friday Round-Up

Our neighbor asked why we have lights on in our house in the middle of the night and I told her it was because our dog, Swirl, has lost his mind. The incessant fireworks set him to pacing and then to pawing so that… Continue Reading “What’s Behind the Green Door Friday Round-Up”
