MeadowCat On second thought - was chatting with a friend and given that her incision isn't healed up yet, I don't want to risk infection. We'll do some searching at home.

I also have a Bosch dishwasher and love it. Same with Mel - doesn't dry totally, and the wash cycle is longer than my ancient dishwasher, but I really like it. More efficient than my old one.

Good pick 6-7 ---- You know - In the long run - that Bosch is a lot cheaper than the legged kind

melbrod They always think they're better before you think they're better. I remember Capri getting loose and doing full-on zoomies all around the yard at about 7 days past abdominal surgery. And yes, doing that she managed to open up some of her skin stitches (not anything really inside, thank goodness). Having a girl dog can be a...bitch.


B67, I have a Bosch 300 series purchased last year. I'm very happy with it.


My only complaint is that it doesn't dry as well as my previous dishwasher--the plastics stay wet (everything else dries well, but I have plastic glasses for ordinary use)--but I guess that's the direction a lot of manufacturers have gone for energy savings. You do definitely need to use the wetting agent stuff they make.

Since she's okay for "leash walks", I think it will be fine. She wouldn't be doing anything more strenuous than she'd be doing on a walk - I can easily modify any search to make sure of that. I can definitely call my vet to make sure, but...the more cooped up she is, the worse she's going to be at home. If I try to crate her non stop she'll be flinging herself around in the crate, trying to leap around the room when I let her out... I'd have to set up small searches for her at home anyway just to burn up some mental energy!

spocksdad FYI- NYT article being published Tues about Llama Therapy Animals from our Delta Pet Partners of San Antonio organization.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/14/w...t-therapy.html


Spoke with the Rutledge family, llama owner/handlers, at our last seminar. They said they also regularly visit with special needs kids at Morgan's Wonderland theme park here in town:

https://www.morganswonderland.com/about-us/


Spock has never seen a llama in person, but has seen full sized horses at the HADR farm during Doberfest events.

#1 Rule for dogs & horses- don't sniff their butts or you might get kicked! Happened to our previous dog, a rough collie, Nemo, many years ago, on a farm visit!

MeadowCat Good morning, all. Anyone want a young Doberman bitch who thinks she's perfectly recovered from surgery and should just get to do what she wants? Especially one that "announced" her full recovery by jumping a 28 inch gate when she wasn't even really supposed to be jumping on and off the couch yet?

Sigh.

(I suppose, if you like your jobs...)


Questions:

1. Will you be visiting Scott's cubicle regularly to empty his piss-pot?
That might be a bit awkward in the office setting...

2. How the heck did he recover so fast?
Did it have anything to do with your new running & practicing routine for Git Up dance video?

Beaumont67 Beau waiting for 9:00 this morning.
- Andrews old SamSung dishwasher went on the blink...came with condo, few years ago
- likely over 10 years old...so not worth the fixing expense
- so Dad is trying to get son into a Bosch, at a great price & waiting for Customer Service to open up
- there is possibly a 25% Govn. discount re. Energy Star Appliances

JJ got 45% the new basement floor installed yesterday / in the Man Cave & closet.
- Andrew & Dad loaded RubyRed up, for a dump run on Tuesday (when open)

Larry & Kelly heading back to condo soon / finish my sanding & prime hallway.

Andrews electrician Leonel is from Cuba, he also said Bosch is the best dishwashers.
- their grid system is so bad, Bosch is the only machines...that work well, in home country

I don't think there is a camera shop in Guthrie, but I will check. There might be one on the wrong side of the turnpike.

Do you have a Best Buy? Depending on your budget, I'd recommend either the Nikon Coolpix B500 or the Canon PowerShot SX530. Both under $250.

Check in from time to time and tell us the west coast weather report, if nothing else. 'K?

In a sorta related thing, I've noticed that whenever there is a predator/prey in the area--coyote and deer, or hawk with magpies, the prey tends to follow along near the predator as he moves along. The deer will follow a coyote as he moves along; the magpie will surround a tree with a hawk in it and fly from tree to tree after him when he moves to a new perch. I think it's that same concept--if you can see something dangerous, you can make sure it doesn't get too close. He can't suddenly jump out from a hiding place and grab you.
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer!

Nuff said!

That may be it, mel...when I tried to take pics before, and got too close, they took off on me but once I started talking to them I found I could get so much closer and they relaxed. Like I said, I think it was 2 years ago, a fawn came so close to me I could have reached out and touched it. Its mom was standing there, looking at me, then looking at it, and I stood perfectly still, talking to the fawn and it kept getting closer and closer, sniffing the air, trying to figure out what the heck I was. Made my day

TNfisher A few pics from the hike this morning


Go ahead and laugh but, I discovered about 3 years ago that if I start talking to the deer, they relax and I can get pretty close, and sometimes the younger ones will come up to me (I had a fawn come to less than 5 feet from me once). It's mainly the younger ones (curiosity?) but it works on some of the does as well. I'm not sure if the sound of my voice gives them something else to focus on and they forget there's a human close to them or what but it works, and when you're trying to get closeup pics like this, you take and use whatever you can The last 2 pics here, I was about 15 feet away from that deer and it just laid there and listened to me talk

Looks like once the family sets their mind to it they do their best to accomplish. Good trait...wish I had more of it! Maybe would settle on a hobby
Of all the things listed - I did martial arts the best....when I was younger. Many tournaments that I did ok at. Also helped the instructor. I think some of that training attributed to portions of my neck/back problems But was fun at the time.

SP mentioned her dad did Intarsia - When I looked at some videos - reminded me of stained glass. Which I also tried my hand at.


Reminds me of another story - Wife signed up for stained glass lessons. Turned out the place was just down the street from us. The Saturday came and I was on the computer early wife had left to go up the hill for the lesson. I got a call saying she was the only one there would I like to come up. So I got dressed and walked up to the house. Turns out the lady who was instructing went to the same high school I did in New York a few years ahead of me so I did not know her at the time. Plus it was a big school. Some how both of us ended up in same town in SC. Very small world at times.

Thks Mo for the kind words...I thought it neat, Andrew was interested in half your list of achievements...one time or another.

And KEN, you got Larry laughing.
- we were walking back to my '84 GMC truck, when the fight broke out
- son told fat kid to F-off, your not stealing my 1st base
- a quick Karate block, of the punch and a few seconds later...
- Andrew's foot came up so dame fast...dad could not even block it
- son was trained to kick & punch, straight through target...several inches
- fat bullies side of head went back sideways / in a split second & fight was over
- all the kid needed was a cup cake after he woke up and waddled his arse back to the coaches corner

-------------------------------------

#1 KSF..mastering "thinking outside the Box", at work and in play !!

Yep, Beau had fun remembering the karate stories and Andrew was so driven in competition // Dad always solved his growing up problems &/or personal development, via answering one simple question..."what can I do, to build up his young confidence", which as an adult, he has an abundance of.

Few more of BabyBear accomplishments...
- scouted via Atlanta Braves & Detroit Tigers recommending Scouts, as the top Canadian pitcher at 12 y/o // pitched 4 innings at Triple A tournament in Toronto & recorded 8 strike outs (he pitched hard, and had a natural fastball that would rise 4" in strike zone
- sons batting average @ 14, was 0.542 and on base percent was between 0.750 - 0.800.
- bad rotate'r cuff injury, left the game

Billiards qualified Top32 in Junior World 9 ball championships, won trip to Osaka Japan...and Dad went to.
- won the North American World Speed Pool Junior championships, potting 15 balls in 56 seconds (in the finals) // he also run an 8 ball rack off Adult World Champ
- also won the North American Junior Artistic "trick shot" Pool championships, in Tulsa, OK


Back to Martial Arts protection - Andrew was a skilled Brown Belt, at 12 years old...one under Black belt.
- he use to air round house kick dad in the living room, walking through
- Beau would give his s*it, saying one day your gonna miss...but he never did, and always managed to create enough wind, on the side of my head, to mess up the hair over my ear
- he meet the original bully 4 years later, while Andrew walked home with an expensive Saxophone...2 on 1, son said..."frig, another fight to finish"
- they wanted to see and hold the brass music instrument...and one knows, they would drop it on the pavement, nose first
- so grade7 or 8 Andrew, bent down with confidence...in front of their feet
- there you see it // but they wanted to hold it LOL
- NOPE, Andrew locked the case up, at their feet // got up, turned his back on the 2 and walked straight home
- he owned the much older BULLY, after solid training in Martial Arts
- Andrew had power, speed and control
- and SMRT Dad, built a young lads confidence / and the whole process, helped my own brain injury survivor (70 mph car meets my Ski-Doo collision injury) ...the analytical part, was important (to expand my way of thinking)
- killing 2 birds, with one stone

-----------

Mrs67 I know would like "Stain Glass"...could be a good hobby to take up plus get back to sewing...thks for sharing good story Mo
