Oh dear! She has gone over the edge!

I just came upstairs from the Christmas Party. I had boneless spare ribs, fried chicken wings, 1/2 egg roll and some noodles. I grabbed a large handful of napkins and blotted every last vestige of grease from all the meats and egg roll. I tried to pick the food from the top. I didn't want any that had been sitting in the grease in the bottom of each pan. I wasn't taking any chances. I also had a cup of coffee. They had fat free half and half. All chemicals. I came upstairs and got my regular stuff. I brought a second helping of everything I had back for Spike. He will be here at 7 p.m.

The worse thing about getting a new vehicle these days is re-learning all the electronics. This one has more gizmos on it than my truck did.
Pix!

Do you name your vehicles?

Thanks.
I'm going to miss my truck, but it's time was near (I lease) and they really wanted it. They made me an offer I couldn't refuse. So now I have a Jeep like the other million on the road, lol.

Nice rig Pac. I had a 2003 Grand Cherokee. Had the front seats replaced twice under warrantee. Seat heaters cracked the leather. Mrs D made me get rid of it. It sure road like a dream. By the way.......why is your driveway all white in the pic?

There has to be 10 trucks for every Grand Cherokee on the road.

I was watching Boston's Finest on Cable TNT. It always amazes me when they show a picture of the Boston skyline how our two tallest buildings, the Hancock Tower and The Prudential Building, look so far apart. It looks like there is a mile or more between them. They are actually just around the corner from each other.

Tonight Teddy was nipping on my toes. He was acting like he wanted me to follow him. So I did. I brought up some chicken wings for Spike. He was eating them and wasn't sharing with Teddy. He wanted me to get some of the chicken meat from Spike for him. So instead I cut up a small piece of ham for him. He gobbled that down. It was then that Spike told me he had some turkey and roast beef in his dish at home that he hadn't even touched. Yet to see how he was acting tonight, you would think Spike never fed him. So then when Spike was finished he put the bones and dirty napkins and plate in the waste basket. When we weren't looking Teddy dragged them out and was licking the plate and chewing on the napkins. He got upset when Spike snatched them away. That is when Teddy decided he had enough and got his leash and brought it to me. That didn't work either. I made him go lay down. Usually he will lay down beside Spike, but he was mad at him. So he laid down right in front of me and looked up at me with those big black pitiful eyes. That worked. I called him up on the bed and gave him a good round of scratchies. Sooner or later you have to give in.
