    Morning AB, all.

    Love Giuliani who has them jabbering for the truth he speaks.

    Anyway, sang at 10 am mass this morn.

    Folks, do you remember the fellow in my choir who died? Then my priest dropped dead at his memorial mass?

    This week we get a message that THEIR LITTLE DOG DIED! Cutest little dog in the world....the guy’s wife is also in the choir.

    So last week she phoned me....odd. I can’t think of a single time I ever talked to her on the phone. She talked about this and that....but did tell me her little dog had to be taken to the Vet, that he was very ill. Only 3 years old.....and I fretted. I met this little fellow when I went to visit Merle before his horrible death.

    Today we get an email that the little guy died and my knees buckled. HOW LONG IS GOD GOING TO PUNISH THESE GOOD PEOPLE??

    Now I know it’s not on God....but I’m damn near broken guys.

    I guess that’s why Merle’s wife called me....Ronnie is her name. I didn’t know what to say but had a ball of angst in my gut that something was going to happen to that little dog.

    I guess I could say the dog’s in heaven with Merle but hey, he’s already got our priest up there. is okay here pretty much. Could do without cold, snow and crap but okay. Daughter with Muncheussen had a hysterectomy three weeks ago. Still she goes everywhere with that pillow up against her stomach...proudly...that all the world might know that she has a surgical scar on her stomach.

    Y’all are just going to have to read my book.

    And I ain’t even told y’all about my new writing job, being interviewed in my home, senators calling up my editor and telling them how good I am.

    Which I am.

    Heh. Rudy....he’s the hero this week.

    Thank you for your input.

    Blanca’s pretty good, even now for a 25 pound puppy.

    But she minds food sources with a passion.

    She’s going to be a good dog, I can tell.

    She’s an American bull dog....nice breed...they’re very lazy I am told.

    I say Blanca’s dedicted to finding food.

    Well it’s funny you mentioned this.

    When I first got Jackie she was a real mess. She tore the trash up, crapped all over the place, went wild.

    I began putting her in a crate and after a few months she was much calmer. I’ve only had Jackie for eight months, got the puppy because...well Jackie is very sociable and my daughter’s dog had puppies....

    So I left Jackie lose in the house and she’s now wonderful.

    As for Blanca, I put her in the crate too. Still considering doing it again. I’m thinking you were chastising me for letting my dogs run wild or something. Nobody’s more devoted to her pets than me.

    Way I figure, Blanca’s going after food. Even when I’m home she goes after food. Best for me to figure out what she’s going to get in to with me home or not.

    Also she sits under the cat feeding area....I have three cats....and waits for bits of food to all on the floor to her waiting mouth.

    Of course I had to re-arrange the cat feeding area until the cats must now dine at the top of their tree climbing pole.

    My house is pretty much animal proof but I’d never have considered a puppy so hungry that she would break into a Tupperware storage container.

    Jackie would never consider such a thing but don’t think Jackie’s all that innocent. She joins right in.

    By now I’m almost animal proof but Blanca might see the inside of that crate again.

    Another reason I’m steamed at y’all...not a single one of you tried to talk me out of getting this puppy.

    She’s really not all that bad but she’ll stop at nothing for food.

    First she managed to talk Jackie, my 4.5 yr old rescue dog, into getting into the trash can. Blanca-that’s the pup, can not reach it and before Blanca Jackie did not bother the trash.

    Cleaned that up.

    Somehow that puppy figured out how to climb up on a kitchen stool and now any food on the counter is fair game.

    Of course I moved the stool and the trash can is now on top of the refrigerator.

    Blanca got my lunch tray stored on the counter but alas, no food. She knows that sometimes there is food on that thing and she is really on her last legs...only minutes to live.

    Yesterday I come home and she has a box of clementines all the hell over the house. Well it was on the counter, could be food, neither dog could figure out how to open a clementine...also known as Halos.

    Today I come home and I had my hoody flung over the kitchen chair. Sometimes I store biscuits in the pockets of my hoody. The contents of my hoody pockets, now unrecognizable, were shredded all over the living room.

    Don’t forget the not one but TWO boxes of dog biscuits, treats I give them during the morning exercise routine and stored (formerly) in a bag placed under a kitchen counter that Blanca could access.

    Moved exercise bag up real high but left choir bag under same kitchen storage space.

    Came home and the prayer book was in ten thousand shredded bits of paper all over the floor. The prayer book-missile- was covered with a plastic cover that resembled, as I ponder, the cover to the dog biscuit container so they kept shredding, figuring sooner or later they’d get to the dog biscuits.

    Oh, before putting the exercise bag up high, now hanging from ceiling, I replaced with another bag that zipperd up, figuring they never figure out the zipper.

    Two sets of dog teeth tore that new cloth exercise bag all to hell and again they ate an entire container of dog biscuits.

    Now choir bag and morning exercise bag hang from the ceiling, all stools are far away from the kitchen counter and the trash, as I said, is on the refrigerator.

    Blanca feels there is not enough food in the world and she’s liable not to make to the next day.

    And Jackie the rescue dog? That was once such a good dog?

    Well she tells Blanca to behave but then joins in the fun.

    I am here all day today, got nothing major going on except taking care of crazy daughter but she’s okay.

    Beyond is pretty good. Got a new puppy.


    Cause both dogs-this includes Jackie my 4.5 year old rescue dog-managed to get into my morning dog biscuit treat box and ate-from a container bi enough to hold a loaf of bread, EVERY DOG BISCUIT INSIDE!

    Also, puppy loves to eat cat poop and this is a challenge. call it nothing I call it Islam. You get money not to say the name, I call it Mooslimb radical.

    Serious folks, this administration only makes themselves look so stupid.


    Guys this story has plucked my last nerve.

    Let’s see, what did this guy lie about?

    How about dead bodies floating by on flood waters that were nowhere near him? Goodness how about the trapped puppy he saved as a volunteer fire fighter? Or was it two puppies?

    Oh there’s more, there’s much more.

    This guy is the height of arrogance, to just march out there and lie to us as he pees upon our feet and tell us it’s raining.

    Anyway, I’m here....was interviewed last week for writing for a new Blog....IN MY HOME THEY CAME!

    And my Sunday talk show Blog post, the one that the fine, fine Humblegunner hated so much....IS THEIR VERY FAVORITE!

    Morning AB, All. Singing at the 10am mass this morning. Then have to go visit daughter who had a hysterectomy Friday.

    Ah yes....this daughter of mine with a love of illness, hospitals, pain an cancer, drove me nus, telling me she was going to di, that she was filled with cancer. She had a couple of dermoid cysts removed from her ovaries, no sign anywhere of cancer, four trips to the ER proceeding this fine, fine hospital stay.

    After they took her to the operating room I told everyone, EVERYONE, that she has Muncheussen syndrome and to watch the IV lines....

    The medicos were shocked, yes they were, but the ONLY way to stop this....folks she likely didn’t even need the operation she had but one random trip to a GYN that se dgoes to doctors four or five days every week and finally found a doc who “found” something. patient with me....the whole thing is just so weird. What could I do? A randome GYN plucked from the phone book and in Dover Delaware found a cyst on her ovaries...half the women in America have these things I am to understand.

    Then it was frantic here, ER trips (where they always patted her on the head and sent her home)...SO I TOLD ON HER. I TOLD THE MEDICAL PEOPLE WHO SHOULD KNOW THIS FOR GOD’S SAKE!

    Oh, they do....they know Muncheussen...or FACTITIOUS disorder....and the only way to make them do their job is to tell them what’s going on.

    I visited yesterday and she looks great but she tells me she’s the Name of the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost, it gets so damn old.

    Anyway, will be watching the talk shows and hope to join in on this thread conversation.

    I don’t know if daughter is coming home today....she tells me no....heh. Well hell she’d stay until Christmas if she could.

    I’m glad you asked.

    Actually very few pregnancies stem from rape. Not many more from incest. It’s just universally understood that women must never have to bear the child of her rapist and a young girl of 12 or so should not be forced to have her father’s baby.

    All you need is one commercial of a little girl big with child with a sub text to the effect that the republicans think this baby should be forced to have a baby.

    So they always exempt pregnancies allegedly caused by rape or incest.

    Problem is..anyone can just say they were raped. You want an abortionin the ninth month you just say you were raped...maybe say you were held hostage.

    So they require a police report and at this point it’s just to complicated.

    I think it’s a bad Bill. Needs to be worked on.

    Jackie acts like she had pups but I dunno.

    She acts motherly towards Blanca but could be cause she is female.

    Jackie was in amazingly good health when I got her....still is. But she was spayed by the SPCA right before I got her so very possible she had pups.

    BUT she doesn’t let Blanca suckle on her though Blanca would like to I think.

    I’m not making this up though I might be mistaken about her intentions.

    But I just put both rescue dog and puppy outside. For now the puppy thinks the deck is quite big enough for her while Jackie wants her to coome outside and run around the yard.

    I know from experience, tell me I’m right, that when feeding multiple dogs each should have their own bowl, preferably apart.

    So I did.

    Jackie has been, as expected, growling and protecting her food. That little puppty is hungry, however.

    So Blanca eats out of her bowl, gulps it all/down. Now I gave the puppy considerably less than I gave Jackie, but of course.

    So the pup ate all of hers, on the deck where I put the bowls on opposite sides. Jackie left half of hers and went down the ramp for a jaunt around the yard.

    This surprised me because Jackie, hey, she don’t miss too many meals.

    While Jackie jogged around the yard Blanca went over and began eating what Jackie left. Jackie would glance over, as if checking that the puppy was eating what she left.

    Hey, it could be my imagination. But I do think Jackie left half of her food for Blanca, yes I do.

    They growl at each other, don’tmistake, but they play together quite well and I can’t quite get over my feeling that Jackie is quite a happy dog with a Blanca in her life.

    She’s an American bull dog, now about 8 weeks old.

    She slept with me last night. She is solid white; her name is Blanca.

    Jackie loves her. Never especially wanted two dogs but daughter had nine pups and Jackie, the rescue dog, was very lonely. With rescue dogs you never know their background. I was told her owner died. But I can tell Jackie was raised...I dunno, in a nursing home or something. Her original name was `jackson`...I think that was probably her owner’s last name.

    Jackie loves people and other dogs. Jackie loves me and hey, you get a rescue dog you gotta have patience. But she needs another dog.

    They’ve both been playing this morning. I can tell Jackie loves Blanca.

    They go outside together and tomorrow we’ll spend time outside during morning exercises.

    It’ complicated but thanks for your interest.

    s a genuine IBM. It’s heavy, bulky...I bought it used for a hundred bucks.

    I reallty liked the thing but time for me to move on.

    Just don’t know where to move on to.

    I don’t know what to say AB

    I purchased Norton, I backup....I do play a lot of games, but I can play the same games on my Kindle.

    I am on the Internet a lot.

    I don’t do x-rated sites.

    I estimate I’ve had about five serious virus in as many years.

    I’d sure like to know what I’m doing wrong.

    Thanks much RG.

    I have fought virus forever and I’m tired ofsome Russian somewhere taking over my computer. I don’t need the bother.

    And I’ll tell you something else. my computer needs are much less than in my past. Example, I am using my Kiindle and am able to do most of what I need a computer for.

    Of course I need a computer....the Kindle ain’t enough. Point being I need the Internet, a good word processor and a program to doctor up pictures.

    My days of needing a spreadsheet and database....yada, yada....are done.

    As for the puppy, it’s an American bull dog My son-in-law, no longer living with my daughter, got a male and female dog with plans to breed them. They broke up right around the time that the female got pregnant, poor thing less than six months old.

    She had ten puppies,,,,,one died, nine lived.

    Daughter, God bless and did I tell you she is the sickly type?

    Anyway she had big plans she was going to sell the puppies at almost a grand each.


    I took one because my dog, a rescue dog that I adore and who has been a great dog....but she NEEDS another dog.

    I never thought a puppy....that’s why I got Jackie.4 and a half years NOT a puppy.

    Daughter is never going to sell those puppies but they are quite beautiful. computer,new dog...Happy New Year

    Guess who is on Fox news Sunday? Mine senator...Chris Coons.

    On Keystone pipeline....what?

    Wants congress to NOT over-ride the president’s veto.

    Let me tell, Delawareans WANT that pipeline.

    Morning AB, all.

    As always, thank you AB for doing this thread and thanks to yonder thread participants for your aid in Sunday political talk show interpretation.

    Two big new things in my life this week. Neither is really bad but there is temporary disruption in my normal routine.

    I’m at an age when disruption in routine is a big deal.

    Got a new puppy and the hard drive on my computer, in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost....died.

    Boom....dead. I know a dead hard drive.

    Yeah I got a backup but surely you all know a backup doesn
    t nearly do it. You got to re-install all the software and you only get five installations of thereabouts.

    I am typing right now on my Kindle, on a little teeny keyboard while I have big, fat fingers.

    I am going to buy a new computer but here’s my quandry...I AM SICK AND TIRED OF FIGHTING VIRUS’.

    It’s a virus here,/malware there. I purchased Norton and it missed a recent `malware` attack. Norton did fix it, had a tech take over my computer and took three hours to fix.

    Point is I’m thinking of an Apple computer.

    I am so sick of these virus taking over my computer. The recent malware attack killed my hard drive cause that’s what it does.

    Any suggestions of a new computer?

    Been watching the events in France last week. Also watching General Dempsey, a man who never much impressed me.

    You are exactly right. Who says we have to preserve some creepy religion or dictator?

    If we have to go in there you are going to do it our way.
