Happy Birthday! [Huhn!] Happy Birthday! [Hunh!]
So you’ve aged another year,
Now you know that death is near.
Death, destruction, and despair,
People dying everywhere.
I could go on, but I won’t. Happy birthday, Stephan!
Good for you! Some people would have killed it, even though black snakes are neither poisonous nor aggressive. I just wouldn’t trust any snake to not bite if it felt threatened by my dog.
There’s very little personal info on a Kindle e-reader. Just books, usually. (A Kindle Fire is a different matter.) And how would this be different from any other device? Do you not use a smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC, etc.?
Aagh! I thought it was bad when my Sophie got interested in a black snake just off the porch as we were heading out for our walk one morning, but at least she didn’t touch it before I pulled her away! Were you able to catch and remove it while it slept?
I thought Bucky could never understand anyone else’s world. He’s more than a little egocentric.
Hmm. When I went to grad school in Toronto, I was told Boxing Day was when everything went on sale.
Me too. I’m still laughing hard enough to make my eyes tear.
No, he was still working on it. Texting the bartender to bring it out!
They would need to invite the homeless before the abandoned buildings deteriorate into death traps. The city won’t want to be liable if the building collapses or burns up, and it probably can’t afford to fix buildings that are in bad shape, which could cost more than building new and might endanger the construction workers.
In rural areas of the U.S., dogs without homes may live long enough to form packs, and their pups will be feral unless taken in by humans when young. I know feral dogs form packs even in urban areas of many countries where there is little or no animal control. But how many dogs die in this process? Many, if not most, stray (not feral) dogs would not survive long on their own these days in urban and suburban areas without human help.
