You've given me an idea. I just may have to get one for Spike to put on his dashboard. I am sure I can dream up an imaginary reason such as for Happy Anything Day. His birthday was last September. Too late for that.

I am really surprised that he has even expressed any feelings for this show. I think the English part of his father rubbed off on him. Stiff upper lip and all that rot.

On my MSN page I just saw a picture of a blind dog with his own seeing eye dog. Amazing, so sweet.

Snip take your meds!!! You dont want to end up in the hospital. We have a friend who almost died of that. It can get nasty real fast. Take care of yourself.

we have a new ordinance in c-ville which states homeowners will be fined if they have not cleared the snow from their sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowfall. yet, 1/3 of our c-ville residents are still without electricity, and many don't have cable or high speed internet service since yesterday's storm. most of our schools have already announced closings for tomorrow. the city will send out crews to clear walks of snow after 24 hours and charge the residents.
is this common practice, fining folks for not clearing their sidewalks? this is the first i've heard of such a practice.
oh, and i forgot to mention that voluntary snow-cleaning crews are supposedly being created to help those folks physically unable to comply with the snow removal requirement. except that, nobody has signed to volunteer their snow shoveling services as of yet....

When I lived in the city and had a sidewalk it was supposed to be kept cleared. Grass and hedges could not be over a certain height. All those city ordinances that people just seemed to know. Yes, I'd say it's common practice.

Take care snip. A bad cold can get the best of a person. Take care of yourself! Do not forget those med.'s I"m sure alot of people need you to be around for them.

I am anxiously waiting for a call tomorrow from the doc. to let me know when my surgery will be. It's been keeping me up at night thinking about it.

Well, Snip, I think I just joined you in the "flu" club. Can't keep anything down, chills and fever.

No coughing blood though - you need to see about that one my dear.

Yes Mom
I'll go to the clinic today. My medical only kicks in next month. Don't have a R1400 to go to hospital unless I steal something (and that ain't gonna happen!)
