Our town passed an ordinance against that last year; people can't leave their dogs tied up outside for more than 3 hours at a time. We can call Animal Control and they will give the owners a ticket.

Our town's barking law says you can complain at the 20-minute mark. Unfortunately, most days it's easier for me to put up with the barking from the dogs than it is from the female owner who really IS a *****! Her husband is an and has the patience of a saint.

Yeah...well...she and I aren't exactly on the best of speaking terms...

I've tried, honestly I've TRIED. But when everything you do (take food over, loan tools, etc) is seen as "you don't really like me, you never have" I figure it's time to really not like her. You probably guessed by now she's not the brightest crayon in the box, the sharpest pencil in the drawer, the sweetest cookie on the tray. See "The Ring Toss" incident above.

My back hurts, so I'm sitting around with my Magic Bag, but mine says Sac Magique. Their FAQ says not to heat it more than 4 times a day. Phooey, I'll have to switch to an electric heating pad.

I'm cleaning the bathroom--it smells of pee. I suspect the boarder misses the toilet. Why should I have to clean that up??? Grrrrrrrr.

I'm trying to wait till it cools off enough to walk Beagle. My car thermometer got up to 103F today. I think we'll be walking in the dark.

I am walking on the clouds tonight! I am giving thanks to God for my DA, my parents, my family, for my DC family, my nice University, all of the wonders of this nation, and for the new car.

I believe that sometimes I forget to be grateful when I become overwhelmed with large decisions. I feel badly of that. I want all of you to know that I am grateful for you, always.

Your friend,
~Cat
