Where Tinker Toys Go

Papa Rooster and I were sitting in the living room talking, when all the sudden he says, "Look at Shorty's horse." This is what I saw:

Bill Clinton In Fort Worth

I went to Flickr to check out my sister's pics and I was floored when I saw this picture of Bill Clinton. My sister actually was this close to him and she took this picture.

First of all, I didn't even know he was in town.
Second of all, I didn't know my sister went to see him.

Third of all, I didn't know Monica Lewinsky was still one of his major fans.

(My apologies to the lady in this picture, but she does remind me of Monica Lewinsky - maybe it's just because she's standing next to Bill Clinton with a huge smile on her face.)

This lava lamp phone charm is cool and useful. It lights up when your phone rings. Perfect for when you can't have your ringtone on. It would be even better if the globby stuff actually moved but it's cool nonetheless. $13.75 at Mathmos

Morning Glories

Via The Presurfer:
"This movie shows the extreme nutational movements of Morning Glory vines. Climbing vines need to find a suitable support on which to grow. This movie shows three morning glory plants at the stage where they have just begun 'looking' for a support to climb. The images were captured at 10-minute intervals."

Dear Dogs & Cats...

To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.

Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years --canine or feline attendance is not required

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:

1. They live here. You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it "fur"niture.)
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids because they:
1. Eat less
2. Don't ask for money all the time
3. Are easier to train
4. Normally come when called
5. Never ask to drive the car
6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
7. Don't smoke or drink
8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions
9. Don't want to wear your clothes
10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and...
11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.

Thanks, Laura

I'm Back

After a 400-mile trip to Arkansas, another 200-mile trip while we're up there visiting family, and then another 400-mile trip home, I'm exhausted. I'm not near as tired as Papa Rooster. He's been busting his butt remodeling our bathroom. He's done a great job. Now it's my turn to texture the walls.

I forgot to mention I passed Hillary Clinton's motorcade or whatever you call it when I was passing through the west side of Dallas. They had I-30 shut down going westbound. There was more cops than I had ever seen in my life. I had no idea what was going on. I had to call Papa Rooster to find out what the deal was. I saw all the cops and then I saw the "Executive Coach" black bus and what looked like a cement truck caught in the mix and then a bunch more cops.
