Good 29º dog's water frozen morning. The moon phase today is a Waning Gibbous.
Looks like as far as weather goes we will have 40% today then 50% tonight then 70% tomorrow chance of rain, dry on Friday and Saturday and rain on Sunday. Good thing, as Sami's 5th birthday party is Saturday! The Princess can't have rain on her party!
Yesterday was another 'computer' day. I installed the printer/fax, Word Perfect, Business Cards, Roxio, greeting card programs, etc.
By the time a woman realizes her mother was right, she has a daughter who thinks she's wrong.
Four years ago PJ, on her way home from a pet-sitting project, found a big black lab on the freeway off-ramp. She called me and we got him into my car. I would have kept him in a heartbeat, he was BEAUTIFUL and one of the best looking black labs I had ever seen. But, my back was a problem and I was due for back surgery so my friends Tammy and Gary in Modesto said their dog had died January 27th and they were looking for another dog to be a pal to Jaco, their chocolate lab. Perfect! I nicknamed the dog, Mr. Big Stuff.
( Click here: Mr. Big Stuff Sung by Jean Knight - YouTube ... this was sung in jest often by a ret LASD, Bobby St Clair... a very funny guy!)Anyway I drove him to the half-way point, Redding, and met up with Tammy and Gary and gave them Mr. Big. He and Jaco are best friends, have to be touching when sleeping, play and enjoy life.
Mr. Big is now Sideways. Gary named him that because of the way he sits! LOL.

Williams said goodbye to Hollywood around 1970 and followed his interests into a job in the actual world of law enforcement, spending 25 years as a reserve officer with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, and also working at the San Diego Police Department and the Los Angeles Police Department.He said he formed a mountain-rescue team, taking dead and injured people out of the hills around Topanga Canyon, and worked with a partner as a plainclothes officer on Malibu Beach."We had more felony arrests than any other team," he said.But there are some mysteries relating to Williams' second career that he will not discuss, like the seven years he spent working for the federal government."I'm not supposed to talk about that," he said.
Van was in the first academy class I was in, but because of the "strict moral code" (LOL) the department had and I was "living without the benefit of clergy" with Jerry, I was dropped until we were either not living together or married! (After the wedding nups I went back)
UGH! She didn't even have a chance!
Yesterday I was watching a young coyote up in the pasture. I was in the house and when I coughed he heard it! What ears they have! He turned and looked in my direction~
All I know.Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
