Oh Bug, I know just what you mean about the clothes. For so many years everything I owned was geared around dog shows. Pockets, colors, etc. Then one year my kids bought me a ticket to Utah Symphony. I did break out into a sweat and tore my closet apart throwing clothes everywhere. Dogs do that to you - ruin your social life, your wardrobe and certain friends and sometimes family.

BTW, I need you. My daughter is going to show Bodhi this Spring and we need help.

I like what you have done.

I was going to ask as well, how do you sell a house and attempt to buy another at the same time? I can't take that kind of stress, unless I have tons of money in the bank. Which I don't.

This house is my first house and it made me a nervous wreck just going through the house buying process while living in a rented FEMA trailer.

Thanks SP!

As for buying/selling at same time is hard I think. Once we put this house on the market we hope to get a contract relatively soon. Once we do we shop harder for one we like. In contract put words around if our house sells. Not sure about the contract for buying our current home.

Yes would/will be stressful. I suppose the back up plan would be to put stuff in storage and rent until we find something. That is where the money would go...and no don't have tons in the bank either

Neighbors across the street put their house on the market last Nov. Sold in 3 weeks. They found a new one in a week or so. Both houses closed out in Dec....They moved out same day as new people moved in. Which for them also was a bit of stress.

Good morning everyone!

So I know I am in the extreme minority here - but since yesterday's chirping paint roller Mila has been getting on the extra sofa. We went out to supper yesterday as we were tired from cleaning and painting so didn't want to make something.

Mila was on the couch. Got up this morning with her and I went to the restroom before taking her out....came out and looked where she normally is - sitting in the middle of the rug or at the door waiting. She wasn't there. She was curled up on the couch. So had to shoo her off and take her out.

Good morning Modm ! Looks like you and I are the only go getters this morning

Isn't that Joey a real Looker ?? That Aunt Bug sure whipped him into shape , didn't she ?? Could it been from Bug chasing him around for messing with Leon or Clark ? Maybe he's scared to goof up - lol - Scared stiff ???? LMAO

Aunt Bonnie - your words are so true ! I don't know how many these we passed up to take care of our best friends - really ticked off some family over my dissension sometimes - lol you know what ?? I don't care !

Modm - Had to laugh at the Chirping roller - Back many years ago , when Kasia was here - every time of juice would flicker - it made the smoke alarm chirp a few times , Kasia would head to the door and want out . Or out here in the office , it took her all day to settle down .

Lots to do today - something happened to the water softener - salt tank is half full of water - did check the drain and it appears to be ok , so its probably in a
valve someplace .

Everybody have a great day

Oh, I get it! Well, I'm multi-talented. My grandmother used to tell me I was a flibbertygibbet. ROFL! The truth is, I'm just curious, and I like to know the how and the why of everything I come in contact with. It keeps me busy and out of trouble, at least.

Boo! Hiss! I have a love/hate relationship with purslane. It's a horribly invasive (and ubiquitous) weed here, and I can't tell you how many hours I've spent ripping it out of my garden. But then I decided to find out WHAT it was, and it turns out not only is it edible, but it's as high in Omega-3 fatty acids as fish. Funny thing, out here on the prairie, where there are no fish for hundred and hundreds of miles, that a plant rich in Omega-3 would be so abundant. (Mother Nature always provides.) So I ate some, and it's not bad - kind of light and lemony, and succulent, so very refreshing on a hot day.

It also seems to provide a really nice living mulch in my garden beds and containers, so now I don't hate it anymore. It drinks some water itself, but stores a lot in the leaves, and the shade keeps the soil cool and damp so I don't have to water as often. When I do have to pull a bunch out, whatever I don't eat I toss to the chickens, and they seem to like it a lot. Even the cows will eat it if I put a pile of it in front of them.

Good morning everyone. Surprise, surprise, the weather folks were WRONG. Yesterday they were claiming we'd have plenty of sunshine today with no wind but what did I see when I took Mocha out this morning? Clouds, snow flurries, and that wind is blowing pretty good. Made for a fast potty break though.

Our dogs have always freaked when the microwave beeps when the power flickers. The reason is every time that happens, MY negative energy shoots through the roof!

I finally managed (many years ago) to have three dogs who weren't afraid of thunderstorms (a Dobie, a Lab, and a mutt), until this one particular storm that went over the top of us. Lightning hit the plumbing vent on the roof, went down that pipe until it became PVC, then jumped over a foot to the refrigerator on the porch, and from there, through the wiring to the breaker box. Two light fixtures EXPLODED. I am not kidding. There was glass everywhere, and I absolutely freaked out. I was screaming at the dogs to stay out of the kitchen (tiny shards of glass all over the floor and some embedded in the wood cabinets) and they didn't know whether to sh*t or go blind. Our PHONE WAS MELTED. The aftermath of that was not to be believed. The TV went all wonky with big fat stripes of color and of course, both computers got fried. The stress level in the house was intense. But we got the mess cleaned up, and eventually got all the damaged items replaced (including the fridge, which was also fried). Days later, when I was getting a pan out of the back of the bottom cabinet in the kitchen, I found shards of glass in it. And those doors were closed when the fixtures exploded, so the glass went through the tiny crack of the opening, apparently. Scary stuff.

Anyway, from that point forward, if any of those dogs heard thunder off in the distance, they started shaking and slobbering and trying to climb up on my head. Zipper wasn't here yet then, so all she did when something chirped or beeped was shiver and back up to me, wanting me to hug her and hold her until the storm was over. Whenever we had a storm warning, she and I BOTH would take some melatonin or Benadryl or something else to make us sleepy and not so stressed. I used to love thunderstorms when I lived in Oregon, but since I've lived here, I've learned to fear them. Missy is pretty good - she's still scared, but she's a tough little girl and she manages to control it. Jasper, being a Pyr, is naturally afraid of loud noises (thunder, gunshots, trucks backfiring), so when he hears a rumble or a bang, he hides in his house until he deems it safe to come out.

Ha. No, I can turn the button on and get a very faint sound. Must be a problem inside the computer as the cords are all connected.

I finally managed (many years ago) to have three dogs who weren't afraid of thunderstorms (a Dobie, a Lab, and a mutt), until this one particular storm that went over the top of us. Lightning hit the plumbing vent on the roof, went down that pipe until it became PVC, then jumped over a foot to the refrigerator on the porch, and from there, through the wiring to the breaker box. Two light fixtures EXPLODED. I am not kidding. There was glass everywhere, and I absolutely freaked out. I was screaming at the dogs to stay out of the kitchen (tiny shards of glass all over the floor and some embedded in the wood cabinets) and they didn't know whether to sh*t or go blind. Our PHONE WAS MELTED. The aftermath of that was not to be believed. The TV went all wonky with big fat stripes of color and of course, both computers got fried. The stress level in the house was intense. But we got the mess cleaned up, and eventually got all the damaged items replaced (including the fridge, which was also fried). Days later, when I was getting a pan out of the back of the bottom cabinet in the kitchen, I found shards of glass in it. And those doors were closed when the fixtures exploded, so the glass went through the tiny crack of the opening, apparently. Scary stuff.

Anyway, from that point forward, if any of those dogs heard thunder off in the distance, they started shaking and slobbering and trying to climb up on my head. Zipper wasn't here yet then, so all she did when something chirped or beeped was shiver and back up to me, wanting me to hug her and hold her until the storm was over. Whenever we had a storm warning, she and I BOTH would take some melatonin or Benadryl or something else to make us sleepy and not so stressed. I used to love thunderstorms when I lived in Oregon, but since I've lived here, I've learned to fear them. Missy is pretty good - she's still scared, but she's a tough little girl and she manages to control it. Jasper, being a Pyr, is naturally afraid of loud noises (thunder, gunshots, trucks backfiring), so when he hears a rumble or a bang, he hides in his house until he deems it safe to come out.

Are you talking about the volume on the computer Aunt Bonnie --- OR on the video - I think it's on the lower right side of the video - you can adjust there too If the one on the Video is turned down or off then you won't hear it .

I have the volume button on the video link turned up as high as it will go. Must be in the computer?

I have complained to Rich, but he keeps forgetting to look at it. I give him grace and refuse to nag.

"8 ways to turn the Windows volume up or down"
https://www.digitalcitizen.life/7-wa...th-pcs-tablets

I have no idea what any of this means; the article itself is rather obtuse. I just wanted to jump into the conversation with one of my usual "helpful" hints.
