Left alone with big fat Fanny, she was such a naughty nanny

At the risk of having so little today that I might have to flash the girls, I have a link from OldTitleGuy that I think is rant worthy. He’s always good for getting me going.

I have noticed in the last few days that Rita has finally got the weight on her properly. Her ribs aren’t sticking out and her hips are now covered with some meat. It’s been a long hard fight getting that dog up to snuff weight wise, but we’re finally there. I switched her food again to Nutro Ultra and I’m supplementing it with cottage cheese (that was actually Beau’s cancer cottage cheese that he never got to) and ground chuck. I was just remembering yesterday when I took her down to the Mt. Diablo Dog Training Club two days after I got her. Rich, one of the assistants took one look at her and said “Take her back home” Rich, she’s going to be fine, just trust me on this. Her tail was tucked, her eyes were wide from all the other dogs and she barely knew what to do. We graduated seven weeks later. She wasn’t where she is now, but her tail was up, her eyes were bright and alert and she was a different dog. She used to cower and sometimes if I raise my voice she’ll just hit the deck, but for the most part, she’s a confident young dog now. As soon as the next cycle begins, I’m going to get her into the first rung of Obedience Ring training. I think she could be very good.

Yesterday I did a crossfit workout.

  • double unders
  • clean/squats
  • dips
  • double unders

It was a butt kicker. I’m off for a powerlifting workout now with an hour of cycling tonight. Monday’s time was 1:07, two minutes off of the previous 1:09. I’m praying for no wind tonight and see what kind of time I can really post.

I’m hearing there’s bloodletting over at Dinty Moore. The final numbers aren’t in yet, but it’s not good.

Let the rat race run

It’s been a while, so here’s our google key words of the weak week.

  1. how did the founder of eas, and the bodyforlife bill phillips dad die in may 26,2007 (I haven’t heard about that)
  2. i used to do a little but a little wouldn’t do it (for the record, those are Guns and Roses lyrics)
  3. contra costa county buyer pay (this isn’t a professional site, this is where the professionals go to play)

  10. intellius (in case you missed it, they came here and righted a wrong)

Yesterday I shaved 2 minutes off of my weekday route. I had another screaming head wind coming down Ygnacio. It seems that little dump messed with my head a little bit. I took the down hill at around 20mph. There’s another guy I see all the time that does a similar route. He blew by me on the downhill. He probably didn’t fall on his ass last Saturday. Speaking of which, I have a monumental bruise on my ass. The kind that leaves a lump the size of a baseball in your butt cheek. I also jammed up my right shoulder. I think I landed on the shoulder itself. I know I tucked my head and there wasn’t any scratches on my elbow or my hand, even though I had gloves on, no gravel in the gloves. There’s just no bruise on the shoulder, so I’m not sure exactly how I landed. Besides on my ass, I know I landed on my ass. I’m starting to loosen up again, but it’s been a slow moving couple of days.

Coconut telegraph

The Coconut Telegraph has been rather quiet. We did get a report in about the Financial Title Company picnic. Apparently a low key affair with the Hauptmans staying quietly in the background. There’s all sorts of articles out there about how we’ve hit the bottom of the bubble and things are settling out and such. I think this is true and has been true for about two or three months. Now everyone just has to figure out how to do business in this market. (Here’s a hint, it’s like it used to be, prior to 1997) The Countrywide takeover happens today, so last week was an awesome time to trot out all the charges and lawsuits against them. Trust me, they did it all. At some point there has to be culpability from the executive teams for what these mortgage companies did. It’s time for another series of Club Fed perp walks. And I’ll leave you with this which I found over Bad MLS photo of the day. One of my favorite real estate sites.
