2 Thangs Before the Blog

When one live lives in rural NC a firm appointment is before dinner (lunch) or after dinner. It is then assumed that 4 hours either way of noon is on time.

All the women broke out their leather boots yesterday. I swear some I saw are going to have a vacuum lock when they try and pull those boots off.

And now on to our regular blog already in progress....

Haley was barking loudly this morning around 3 AM. I got up to comfort her and asked her to stop barking.

At 3:30 AM the barking continued. I got up and rebuked her. Surely this will work... after all the governor of SC was rebuked and all is well now..

No, at 4 AM the barking continued and I got up and gathered the pack and called for a formal censure. Rarely have we called for a censure.

The last time we had a censure was 1998 when Peaches uprooted the Hibiscus and shook the root ball flinging soil all over the house.

I hate to be this severe and harsh but by golly if Congress can deal out this kind of punishment every 20 years then I should too.

The house is quiet now.

WARNING - Side effects may include: gas with oily discharge, headache or diarrhea.

Heh heh -- at least you know the difference between censure and censor. Shame on me. I'm sure the man was simply nervous and tripped over the pronunciation.

That boots things. My only warning to the ladies whose calves presently swim in knee high boots ---- Sister, stay off the elliptical trainer before you too have calves the size of canteloupes.
