The Day Off Project

Today was my day off from work, so naturally I had a project to complete. The mission was to unload this pickup full of mulch and transfer it to the area beside the driveway.

This is actually my second load of mulch. I had already transferred a load of mulch to the designated area on a previous day off. So, I knew what I was getting myself into - alot of work!!

Naturally a project of this nature needs a project manager. I am fortunate to have two well qualified project managers.

"Hey Fred, shouldn't we be doing something of a managerial nature?" "Nah, Ralph, two things to remember. First we get paid by the hour. Second what we are doing here is team building. They can't ever fault you for team building, Ralph."

"Hey Fred, I think I hear the taco truck coming. You having tacos today, Fred?" "Nah, Ralph, I brought my lunch today. It is 5:00, yet, Ralph?"

Project completed. Right on time - 5:00. Thanks to my excellent management team!!

The Dachshunds

Perhaps you have noticed the dachshunds have not had much face time on the blog. Of course it is not that I prefer the big dogs over the little dogs. It is just that the little dogs have issues with the camera. They don't like to be still, or even look in the direction of the camera. So you can definitely forget about cute poses!

Exhibit 1 - We refuse to look at you!

Exhibit 2 - Still not looking!

OK, I'll look, but I'll put on my worry face!

I too will look, but it does not make me happy!

Hey, Waiter!

Yes, I would like the large plate of nachos, and an ice tea. Shouldn't I have chips and salsa by now? You aren't expecting much of a tip, are you? Hey, waiter, look at me!!

Sleeping on Shirts

Her favorite thing is to go into His closet and arrange His shirts - the ones laying on the floor waiting to go to the cleaners. The next step is to lie down on them and nap. She loves Him. I do too.

Gus has a rash on his belly which he has been licking every evening for a week or so. It is not pretty. I've got some stuff to put on it, which he promptly licks off. I thought about putting a cone on him, but he hates the cone, so on went the muzzle. He promptly lay down and began snoring. I really need to train Gracie to accept the muzzle like I did with Gus. Sometimes they need to keep their lickers in their mouth.
