Dream Dictionary

Do y'all believe in this sort of stuff? I don't dream that much, or at least I don't remember them usually. But I had a dream last night about pumpkins for some weird reason.

At this site, you can look up something you dreamed about and see what it means supposedly.

I used to dream all the time that I was floating. In one recurring dream I used to have, I'd be floating above the bed and then I'd wake up right before I hit the ceiling fan.

And then of course, there's the recurring dream that I didn't graduate from high school and the principal calls me up and tells me I have to go back to high school, like, now - when I'm 35 years old - and I show up to high school naked. What the hell is wrong with me?

'Aggghhhh! Someone dial 911, I'm being mauled by a troll!'


There's no explaining Love.


'Ahhh, the fresh, relaxing aroma of feet.......'

Mad Skills....

'Uh, cat? What cat?'

How to tell when its time to make your kids sleep in their own bed....

'I swear a Big Doberman busted in and just tore the place up....'

'Hi! Will you be my friends?!'

Look What Came To Visit At Our Yard Sale

Well, the yard sale went pretty good. We made close to 500 bucks between us and my mom. The main goal was to clean out our house, and I think we did that.

While bagging up stuff after the yard sale to take to Goodwill, I found this in the 10¢ sock box.

I know it's blurry, but Big Daddy thinks it was a brown recluse.

Then while Big Daddy and my mom went to Goodwill to take all the leftovers, this creature walks up the driveway and starts pacing back and forth at the gate. At first I thought it was an overgrown hairless chihuahua. Then I thought it was a hyena. And then it finally set in that it was a coyote pup.

At that moment, my mom pulls in the driveway and opens the gate and this little sucker walks on in and walks straight to the fence where my dogs were. They start barking and he jumps back and crawls under my car. Big Daddy finally shows up. He gets out of his truck and we yell that there's a coyote pup under my car. He immediately goes to get his gun saying he's going to shoot it. I was able to talk him out of that. I called animal control, which was not open, but their phone system forwarded me to the police department. I tell the dispatcher or operator there's a coyote pup under my car and she says, "I don't understand what coyote means." I said, "It's a ky-yo-tee. You don't know what a ky-yo-tee is?" She understood then. Anyway, the cop shows up and calls animal control. Animal control shows up and gets his pole and manages to catch all four legs and then they put him in a little pet carrier and take him off.

Here he is:

I kind of felt bad for the little thing. I mean, coyotes are pack animals. We heard this thing yelping during the yard sale, but couldn't see him. How did he venture away from the pack and why didn't they come find him? We're kind of thinking maybe he was sick or something. He was acting kind of strange, but I have no idea how they act normally.

Always some kind of drama going on around here.
