    I’ve always said the Habner’s spoiled that dog!! She chews up his milk bones for him and spit’s ’em in his mouth too.

    I feel a bit sad seeing this cartoon, it reminds me of someone I know.

    I’ve known a number of people who seem to think their dog has no legs of its own.

    I hope the Yak Gyros are not all gone or overly crispy, got so busy at work I couldn’t even peek in the Tiki window, but now I’m home for about 7 and a half hours before back to work so a bit of tipple and a gyro if any are left then off to bed….. laters!

    Oh Red… I fell asleep and didn’t see you when you came in.

    Got here really late myself… but there was plenty of gyros still on the spit.


    If you have to get home right away you can take some with you…. I think it’s still fine.

    The Habner’s got Eddie from the lady down the street, when her dog Pippa had puppies.

    He was only 6 weeks old, and cute as a button.

    She showed them his dainty little paws, and said it proved his father was the feral chihuahua who lives in the Bradley’s tree.

    Since they “knew” he’d only ever weigh12 or 15 pounds, tops, they bought that pack…
    and an adorable little blue dog sweater that says “Killer.”

    Scooter gets around!

    They gave up eventually on the sweater, and gave it to the Hanson’s cat.

    Bev…. you never said about your appointment…

    I’m really sleepy right now, but yeah…
    the thing you saw when Linda’s link was missing IS what I was talking about…

    but it’s so small I was wrong about what it actually looks like
    and the icon I mentioned isn’t even around any more…. sigh….

    In IE you’d see a little red

    in Firefox a tiny blue square with a white question mark,
    and in Chrome a tiny one of these…. which I managed to capture and enlarge.

    (They are wild and NOT easy to trap…
    I sat out there in the cold with a tiny icon net….
    had to feed it wth an eyedropper to get it big enough to view…

    now shhhh….
    don’t scare it away….)

    RedKid's Image Hoster

    When you put exclamation points around some bit of code, it signals to your browser that it’s supposed to display a picture.

    But the link she posted didn’t GO to an image….
    so your browser puts up its particular brand of symbol for “hey, I can’t show you a picture from this junk!”

    This Chrome one seems to represent a tiny picture with a break in it.

    And have we settled on Saturday, everybody?
    Seems like a good idea, considering the storm.

    It’s after Halloween is over, but the good news is the candy and decorations will be half price!

    Stel, Dogsniff, Storm, Red…. and everybody else back East…. stay safe and dry…

    and welcome back, Linguist…. keep forgetting to say.

    I’m heading to my loft in the salon….
    the Monkey’s on the night shift…
    Ballard St. feels like a safe haven…
    sleep well, everyone.

    re: Ballard St. therapy…

    “The one at the local Ballard County Mental Health and Window Washing/Lawn Service
    Group? Yes, I believe this time of year he does spend extra hours clearing the leaves off their clients lawns. He will allow up to 7 minutes of therapy per lawn though, for regular clients if it’s a simple borderline personality disorder. Full blown personality disordered persons must be treated solely at the office. They’re usually lined up around the corner and down the block all the way to the Bait and Donut Shop.”
    As someone who used to work on a psychiatric crisis team many years ago, it was always my experience that Borderline Personalities required more than the now-standard 7 minutes….back then, the minimum was 12 ½ minutes. My, we’ve come a long way! As usual, Ballard St. remains in the forefront of innovative medical treatment.

    And, oh yes!…who hasn’t been lulled into not minding a bit of wait, as long as one can have a donut or two while browsing some fresh worms and nightcrawlers…
