    The rabbits running in the ditch

    Today, I’m opening with a public service announcement.  I know we have a lot of visitors from Colorado, so here we go. I’m still looking for Jago my five year old male Dobermann natural ears and long tail. Last seen west of Aurora Reservoir in the Denver Colorado metro area on August 25th. Someone may be keeping him on purpose, or may not realize he is being searched for? There is a SUBSTANTIAL reward for his safe return or for information leading to his location, NO questions asked. He is tattooed and microchipped. He is probably still in Colorado, BUT he could possibly be in another state by now Call…

    All the strings and strokes in the ocean

    I don’t know who I’m more ticked off at, Bill Gates or me.  One of us is stupid and the other is an ass and it rotates.  The new camera is super cool, but I misread the settings.  I thought “L” was lowest, which is what it was on the Canon Bubba dragged through the house on Sunday.  It means LARGE.  The pictures came out 3 mgs each.  I didn’t notice it because they dropped so nicely into the BPO and I sent it out.  The doc was 83 mgs.  All I can say is thank God I caught it and it didn’t go out.  My broker would have skinned…

    Sweet confusion under the moonlight

    I love Bubba, don’t get me wrong. He’s a goofy soul that needs an owner like me. No question about it. Right now I would like to kill him. I think I mentioned that he got under my desk yesterday and got tangled up in the wires. What I didn’t know was that my digital camera was attached to one of the USB wires that he was tangled up in. When I said “Bubba! Get out of there!” he did, with the USB cable and my digital camera attached. It followed him down the hallway and when he turned into the kitchen it smashed into the wall and snapped off…

    Say I’m the only bee in your bonnet

    OldTitleGuy likes to get me wound up first thing. This story is has been replicated throughout the State in varying degrees. I know one who’s about to get her comeuppance. I couldn’t be happier. If, with all that’s going on we can’t get the dirty EO’s, real estate agents and loan officers out of the business than what good are we to the consumer? I mentioned the other night to some wine folks that Foley Wine Group needed to be boycotted. I love people who don’t take my word for it and go out and do their own research. I’m not kidding. I really respect the tenacity. Generally, those folks…

    It’s been a while since I first saw you

    This time last year I had just gotten home from driving to Red Bluff to pick up a little Red Hot Rod Dog. She’s not the same dog that hopped in the truck that day. Back then she was so insecure that she’d look at me and pee. She hasn’t done that in over six months. Even when I raise my voice. We had two accidents (one each) in the house last week after I got home from Reno but those were the first in several months. She listens like a good girl. She comes when I call her. She walks perfectly at heel, does an automatic sit and she’ll be taking…

    It’s nobody’s business but the Turks

    I’ve got nothing.  So it must be time for the Google keywords of the weak week. annual report of alliance title company -actually they weren’t publicly traded so you can’t get that anywhere.  God knows I’d have it if you could. dog food power struggles -I have no idea bootleg cab -The question is do you mean gypsy cab or Freemark Abbey’s Bootleg Cabernet Sauvignon.  I’m going with the former. template for bunny sake art for 3 and 4 year olds-Don’t give children Sake tina lemieux denver, co -she’s the poor schmuck that had to take all of the Mercury Companies calls. lydia mondavi -She makes fun wine. still want…

    Nothing’s going to stop me but divine intervention

    Holy crap! It’s a new year. My dreams a lot of the time are like a Fun House. For the last month, Beauregard has been in nearly every one of them. Running free. After he died, Xica was in a bunch of them and she’d been gone for three years. My dreams involve falling and haunted houses and unseen evil forces. But last night Gavin Newsom vacuumed my carpets. He took off his jacket, tossed his necktie over one shoulder and vacuumed the carpets at the Farm. No shit. Now when I worked in San Francisco I’d run into him on the street now and again. (He’s really tall…oh hell…
