Thanks, Pac. I didn't know that.

Since I have no reason to buy dog food, I am unsure of the answer...doesn't Purina make kibble for small dogs that would work? Lordy, here I am being nurse to dogs.

There are many manufacturers that make small sized kibble, some do it automatically for all the varieties they offer and some do it just for their puppies and small breeds foods. Really though, any size kibble will work. Smaller kibble isn't going to help if the dog is missing teeth or anything. The dog may just find it *different*, so associate it with a treat until they get used to it. You can also try soaking it in water to make it a mash, which will actually help start the breaking down process and be easier to digest. Especially a food like Purina, which is hard for a dog to digest anyway.

Woo-Hoo! I just bought another pistol
I have been looking at it for two days, but the serial number and information just wasn't jiving. They called me on my cell phone yesterday to say they had misread the serial number and to give me additional information, but I didn't get the message until this morning. I'm lucky someone else didn't snag it because they had updated their website to include the correct information yesterday.
It's a pistol built in Argentina and used by the British Special Forces in WWII. I'm stoked. It's in cherry shape

I just placed another order for a pork belly, too.
That will be in today at 1:00

Sounds like pacanis is having a good day! Sounds like fun pac.

I am going to work up the energy to go clean out my eavestroughs. They overflowed pretty badly the last storm and I've been keeping myself WAY too busy to go do that. Yuck. Gross job.

I'm also going to make time to read some library books and to eat some salmon I smoked. Then I'm going to work. Big day folks, big day.

Alix, I've never heard this term before. Learned something new today! Around here we call them gutters.

Huh, must be a Canadianism. Whatever you call them, I don't wanna clean them!

I always hated the task. We had a one story ranch so it was relatively easy. Still hated it.

I grew up in central New York and we had eavestroughs and downspouts.
