We got one. I think there are at least two more in there. But, he won't let us near him anymore. I guess the first one hurt him too much. He can't use that foot. Looks like I will be spending my day off at the vet.
Which leads me to another vent. lol. I have to wait until the propane technician comes to fix our tank. Seems we have had a leak for quite a while. Three 900 dollar fill ups since Christmas. I am going to have to fight for some kind of credit. It probably has been leaking for months.

Holy geez Rock! Hoping things get better in a hurry for you!

PF, Re: saying sorry about that and making another appt, yep! I didn't need them to admit it was their mistake, I don't really care. What p!ssed me off to no end was the implication by ALL the desk staff that this was MY error and their snotty attitude. Really, has all common courtesy disappeared? When I deal with people (and I do it all day everyday) I am polite and pleasant until someone is rude to me. Its not that tough a thing to do. And I don't take out my irritation with one client on the next!

Katie, geez louise! What an organizational nightmare. Take those little appt cards though, they are your "proof" if any clerical staff make an error!

LP, you have to call THEM to confirm? Weird. Admittedly, I don't see specialists often so I am not a reliable source, but all my interactions with them have been very smooth.

And honestly, I'm an adult...so are they, neither of us should need to make a call and confirm an appointment. If an error is made, lets not point fingers, lets just move along and fix things.

Rock, give your poor puppy a hug from me when he will let you. Would he let you soak his paw in some warm water with epsom salts in it? That might help get the quill out.

Things are better. The Propane Tech came by and found a major leak in the tank gauge. He said we should get a big credit. The dog is starting to use his paw a bit. I never had a chance to go to the vet today, so we will see what he is like tomorrow. He is dragging his toys out of the box, so he can't be too bad. lol

What a beautiful Pup. Hope he gets better soon. Those quills can be nasty.

Glad to hear things are going better Rock. Yes, that is one beautiful doggie. Dogs and porcupines, what a PITA. Is it his first run-in?

We've got so much frozen crap in our two refrigerators the freezer doors don't close properly. This was like the third night in a row that I've come home to discover both freezer doors ajar. I dumped out a third of the frozen goods out of each fridge onto the kitchen counter. My wife buys them and stuffs them to the max. Next week I'll get to the non freezer portion of the fridge and also the pantry. Talk about hoarding crap. At the end we end up throwing out have of what she buys. I'm fuming tonight. My wife will come home from work in a few minutes and see about 30 lbs of frozen stuff dumped on the kitchen counter.

that same thing just happened to me, roadfix. the freezer door was open just a bit, but it was like that for days. everything inside the freezer had a layer of frost on it.

and my wife wastes food the same way. she thinks it's ok to buy stuff, freeze it "before it goes bad", then throw it away when we need more room to continue the cycle.

btw, don't put defrosting things on the counter. put them in the sink or you'll get water and blood all over the place.

I just cannot believe how much food we end up throwing out......especially produce. I asked my wife last night to please not buy any food for a month.

I am doing much better, throwing away less, saving money and have room on the freezer for unexpected bargains, by shopping by the week. It's been working for me and I am saving enough that I can purchase better quality. I also buy bananas every other day...they have a very small wondow of when I can tolerate their flavor and sweetness.

It does help that the grocery store is on the way home from work!

Well, for my wife that makes it too easy for her to stop off and buy unneeded groceries. There are a couple of supermarkets, a Trader Joe's, and a Costco on her route back....That's not good....
