    The healing process

    OK the Cartoon Toe is healing. The Dog is almost completely healed. Hopefully that’s the end of the crap. A Boxer came up to my house tonight. He had a collar and was really sweet. I called the number but no answer. I figured he lived locally so I hooked him up and started walking towards where he came from. Then my cell rang and it was his Dad. Yeah, I got your dog and I’m walking up Toyon, where are you? I live on Toyon, so I kept going and out comes Rasta Boy. I love freaks like him, but it must be a trip for them. I’m at…

    Cartoon toe

    Every now and again, I get a cartoon toe. This is where an ingrown toenail gets so far out of control that it resembles something from a Ren and Stimpy episode. Appropriate cartoon music should accompany the cartoon toe. I had this one cut out yesterday. It’s always like the lion that has the thorn pulled from it’s paw. As much as it hurts, you love your Podiatrist.

    Can you dig it?

    They say this cat Shaft is a bad motherSHUT YOUR MOUTH! I’m talkin’ ’bout Shaft. THEN WE CAN DIG IT! Oh yeah, who’s a bad mother? That would be me. APA meet yesterday in Sacramento. I opened with 195 since I’d been doing that for reps in the gym. Not a problem. Then comes the second lift. I’d done 205 in the gym a couple of times too. Punched that up no problem. I’d never ever done 210 in my life. So I put down 210 for my third lift and punched that up too. I missed my fourth lift at 215 but it was a good day all in…

    Cranky Doberman

    I got the big boy a Bite Not collar. It’s a plastic turtleneck that keeps them from going after stitches. He’s doing a little better with it, but he is just straight up depressed. He stands in the living room and bitches at me, he couldn’t sleep last night, and neither could I. Oy. Note to women who wear perfume, cologne, too much scent in the gym…Don’t.

    At the end of the week…

    I had an epic free day yesterday. There was a bit of un-needed stress last week. A neighbor’s housekeeper left their front door open while taking out the trash. The pit bull came running out of the house and attacked my Doberman. The owner pulled up just as it was happening, jumped out of the car and pulled her dog off of Beau. $829 later, Beau is home, resting, but pretty damn cranky about this change. OK the satellite dish sucks and the t-shirt tied in a knot is kind of faggoty. He’s hoping that he doesn’t have to wear Daisy Dukes too. Free Day Waffles and blueberry syrup Buckhorn’s…

    Settling in to another BFL Challenge

    Actually the real challenge these days is dealing with an 80 pound Doberman who doesn’t understand that when it’s raining out the back door, it is also raining out the front door and walks are cancelled. It’s been raining since I returned from Rancho Mirage on Sunday. SINCE. I drove into the rain and it just hasn’t stopped. I’m not getting a break at all. I can’t even hit golf balls, there’s no break. The pool is near going over, moss is growing all over outside and I live in sunny California dammit. I really need spring to get here. Beau and me have had it. Weight 206Fat 35.3BMW 35.1

    Loading up the animals two by two…

    My God I’m sick of the rain. I just got back from Palm Springs and the LPGA. Karrie Webb won in sudden death, but I had already left to drive home. I drove into more rain. It has rained ever since I got home last night. My weight is up a little, but not bad considering what the week involved. DW insists on going out every night. He thinks his meds are giving him a belly. It’s his lifestyle. The best meal out was at Ormi & Boni in La Quinta. Unfortunately, Ormi and Boni are getting a divorce and the restaurant is being sold. Too bad. I had Pork…
