Mixed Up Friday

 
It’s another one of those days when I have a bunch of stuff in my head that I don’t know what to do with.  The only way to get it out of my head is to write it down.  Hang on, it’s might be a bumpy ride . . .
 
  • ·        Why, why, why is Dr. Phil involved in the Anna Nicole Smith thing?  Does he think that he can make sense of the crazy mixed-up mess?  I want to ask Dr. Phil . . . "what are you thinkin’?"  This is seriously affecting my respect and affection for the man. 
  • ·        "How come we can put a man on the moon but we can’t figure out what is in the dog and cat food that’s making all the pets sick?"  That’s a quote from Dad from Tuesday night.  
  • ·        If one company in Canada is making all these different brands of dog and cat food how can Iams and Eukanuba expect their customers to believe that their dog food is better than the Wal-Mart brand?  Another quote from Dad . . . and something I didn’t think of until he mentioned it.  I might have to seriously re-think whether it’s worth it to feed Blacky and Luci the high priced Iams.
  • ·        The AC in my building is still broke.  It’s probably 80 degrees in my office right now.  I’ve had to get out some of the summer clothes a little early so that I’m not roasting when I’m at work.  There’s just something really weird about wearing light summer clothing in Ohio in March.      
  • ·        Hubby has a cold.  He’s not a very good patient.  I’m not looking forward to this weekend.  Wait and see if I don’t end up with the cold in about a week or two – just in time for our wedding anniversary! 
  • ·        Heard a song on XM radio that I could have sworn was something that Mom made up to sing to us when we were little.  She used to sing "I love you a bushel and a peck" and I thought she made it up just for us.  She would do that sometimes.  Lo and behold it’s a real song.  I heard it on the 50’s channel yesterday.  The song "Bushel and a Peck" was sung by Perry Como.  Perry Como happens to be Mom’s favorite all-time singer.  Yes, it’s still stuck in my head! 
  • ·        The Kroger store that I go to each week has installed the new e85 ethanol pumps at the gas station.  My brother is a service writer for a General Motors car dealer and told me that I have to be careful not to accidentally put ethanol in my car instead of gas.  It won’t do a whole lot of damage to the Dog Mobile, but I’ll have to drain the tank and the clean the fuel system.  Just what I need to add to my irrational fear of accidentally putting diesel in my car . . . .
  • ·        It’s raining again.  The yard is a swampy mess.  Luci’s having a grand time slopping through the mud.  I’ve discovered that baby wipes are a great way to get mud off dog feet!  Blacky is a nervous Nelly and won’t go outside if there is thunder and lightning . . . unless Mommy or Daddy go outside with him.  I was outside this morning at 5:30 in my jammies and hiking boots with an umbrella over me and Blacky so that he would go potty.  Do you think maybe the dog is just a tad spoiled? 
 
Thanks for listening.  I feel better now . . .

    Pam,
    1. Totally agree with the Dr. Phil thing. Thought he was above that kind of thing.
    2. Dog food thing.  My vet told me years ago when we had our first dog, that Pedigree was just as good as any of those higher priced foods.  I\’ve fed Pedigree ever since(dry only).  Makes you wonder if those companies are just slapping different labels on those cans of food!
    3.  What we won\’t do for our four-footed babies!!!!

    So there are gas pumps now that only pump out ethanol? What would those be for? (Just curious. I didn\’t know there was such a thing. I thought ethanol was something that was being added to gas, not something that, by itself, was useful in cars).
