Sunday Question

with 12 comments

During the game on Saturday, I don’t know how we got on the subject, but we started showing odd little things about ourselves… for example, J’s arm looks really odd when she extends it a certain way. D can’t curl her tongue. Some folks can touch their tongue to their nose. I can put my thumb behind the knuckle of my index finger. Most of us have things we can do that we discovered in happenstance, on a dare, or just by being born that way.

What’s something about you like that?

First Match

with 5 comments

images6.jpgWell, it didn’t go like I’d hoped, but at least I didn’t make a fool of myself. My partner and I lost our first match together 6-3, 6-4. I don’t mean to take away from the other team, but we gave away several points with bad shots. We both said that neither of us played our “A” game.

I don’t mind losing when I’m beaten because the other person/team is better, but when I bring about my own defeat, it frustrates the heck out of me!! I made some good shots, and so did my partner, but we were both inconsistent. The other team was much more consistent.

The Post About No Posting

Since I won’t be around tomorrow to post my daily post, I’m posting now about the fact that I won’t be around to post it.

So feel free to NOT post any responses to this non-post. 🙂

Habits and Quirks

with 11 comments

medtees-ocd.jpgI’ve really got nothing of interest to write about, but this crossed my mind last night, so, of course, it becomes blog fodder. 🙂

What are some habits or quirks of yours that, if viewed from an objective observer, might appear to be a bit on the obsessive-compulsive side, or at the least, a quirk? Here are some of mine: Read the rest of this entry »

Growing Tired of the Possum Factor

with 3 comments

images4.jpgOkay, so notice the time stamp on this post. As I begin to write this, it’s 1:40am. I was sitting here watching “The Golden Girls,” and I hear Maggie barking. I go to the window to quietly tell her to shush. As I’m standing there making sure she doesn’t continue, I hear Scout sort of whimpering and what sounds like someone noisily trying to climb my privacy fence! I’m figuring that Scout is probably tearing up something (my fear, a cat) that is trying to climb the fence to get out of the yard and away from him.

My Canine Killing Machine

with 3 comments

For those of you keeping score, Scout is now up to killing two large possums, one medium-sized possum, and one HUGE raccoon. One turtle, fortunately, escaped death—probably only due to the fact that Scout didn’t have a can opener nor opposable thumbs. Unfortunately, I didn’t find the last possum until it was in a very advanced state of liquifying decomposition. I almost didn’t make it through the disposal process.

Goal for tomorrow: Rig fence to keep critters out!
