We ran out of rain. It lasted less than an hour. We need it too. We have a 30% chance of some more rain tomorrow.

We need rain in SE Ontario as well. We are in a level 2 drought. It is soooooo dry. Maybe there will be some rain tomorrow night...but what we need is about 5 days of rain--the kind that would ruin one's holiday at the lake...

I just phoned Sears to have them come fix my portable dishwasher. It's old, but on a service contract (yay!). When I used it on Saturday, it piddled on the floor. Unfortunately, we are in the middle of a heat wave and they are giving priority to people who's food is going to spoil or who are going to become ill because their air conditioning doesn't work, so my appointment isn't until next week on Tuesday. They will try to get here sooner, but no promise.

TL--I have a portable DW. It piddles on the floor when I don't turn the water off before I disconnect the hose and then reconnect it the next time. Could that be the problem?

I'm not sure I understand.

When I forget to turn off the water before I disconnect the hose, water squirts all over the place, especially on me. I seldom forget to turn off the water before disconnecting.

It is the first time it ever piddled on the floor.

You need to smack its nose with a newspaper and shout, " No! Bad DW! Bad! Bad!". But you need to catch it in the act, otherwise it won't understand.

I should have thought of that. I did catch in the act.

I stayed awake all night. Fell asleep on my bed about 6 a.m. The next thing I know my face is being licked to death and I hear a loud bark in my ear. Teddy wanted his back scratch.

While Teddy was here I went out to the kitchen and heated up some left over Angel pasta. Teddy wanted some. So I put the dish down for him. I didn't cut it up. Watching this silly dog eat long pasta strands had me and my son in stitches. He left here with a red beard.
