Ok ok ok. Now that I've pissed off 3 of the 4 people who read this blog, let me just say this:
Robyn, the "Free Levi" thing wasn't insulting red-necks. I guess I don't that often point it out, but my entire family is red-neck! My sister's blog is called Hidden Springs Hillbillies because she and her husband (who we lovingly call Elmer...as in Fudd) live in a beautiful, perfect little community full of doctors and lawyers, and her husband does things like going out into their yard in his boxers in the middle of the night to shoot the skunk that has been eating their chickens. He skins his deer and elk right there in the driveway. My brother served moon-shine (I shit you not) out of gas-cans at his WEDDING. So I KNOW people like Levi and the Palins; hell I'm FROM people like the Palins. And that is WHY I can find the humor in it.
Mom, I apologize if my thing about McCain's house insulted you. I just wanted to make the point that the man who refers to Obama as "an elitist" owns nine homes and a private jet. Now, I've said my peace and I'm done.
I just encourage all of you to vote for the person you believe will do the most to turn this country around.
Soo....how 'bout them Red Socks?
Now. Why didn't anyone, and I'm talking to YOU CORGI PEOPLE, why didn't you tell me that Corgis devote their substantial brain-power to FOOD FOOD FOOD FOOD FFFFOOOOOODDDDD??!! My best friend from childhood, Kim, grew up to marry a man who came with a dog, Iris. Iris was so food-oriented that she once ate through the nanny's purse to get to a single granola bar. Iris figured out, through trial and error, how to open the trash-compactor. Once, Kim came home to find that Iris had somehow opened the door to the pantry and OPENED SEVERAL CANS OF TUNA WITH HER TEETH and enjoyed the fruits (er, fish) of her labor.
Guess what kind of dog Iris was? Somehow, I'd forgotten this little detail. BB, on her first day with us, discovered the can of fish food and hauled it into the living room before I caught her. She has been seen snorfling up stray bits of bunny food that she finds on the ground. She has grabbed the babysitter's latte cup and tried to run off with it. And yesterday, she found AND OPENED a brand-new bottle of Glucosamine-Chondroiten and ate almost the entire bottle.
I guess the good news is that she won't be experiencing any joint pain for awhile.
