Coffee shortage

I meant to buy coffee this morning for my work coffee pot. I went to the store and forgot the coffee.

I’m going to survive though, I may have to go out for some.

The new do was pretty good last night. Except for eating my orchids and a couple more potted plants. And getting in the garbage. She wants attention, and attention she got. I played a little reverse psychology on her. She was hounding me, constantly wanting me to pet her. Finally I did, and when she got up to wander away, I called her back, layed her down and petted her some more. She got pretty relaxed under my chair. Also, after dinner I took away the water. This morning, no pee on the floor!
Also last night I gave her a bath with the hose outside, and she loved it! I mean she loved it. I can’t wait to take her to the beach, I can tell she’s a swimmer. Also, I think she’s beginning to grasp the concept of toys vs non toys.

This morning I overslept. Like 25 minutes extra. I hit the snooze once and I was out. I was sleeping hard, while the radio played.

At least the new dog lets up sleep.

I dunno

This new dog may be more than I am willing to take on. The OI Girl says she’s doing pretty good for only a being here for a couple of days.

But I don’t know. I stepped in dogpee barefoot this morning.

The dog drinks a lot of water. I’m thinking of taking the water away after supper.

Wota Weekend

This weekend on Saturday, I was setting up my rebreather for a Sunday dive and I noticed my fins were missing. The OI Girls father was using them when went diving week before last. Apparently they were left at the dive site. I went looking and calling but they are gone. I loved those fins, Seaquest Accelerators. Now I’m using some Mares full foot fins I’m not crazy about. It was a good dive though.

Sunday, we were given the dog IO Girl wanted. The owners are moving to Jamaica for school for 4 years so the OI Girl has her dog. Sheeba the Girly Girl. She’s the 50 lb puppy I mentioned earlier
She’s part Akita and part Lab.
Pics coming.

This morning they’re installing our hurricane shutters. If I can just get the leak in the roof fixed we’d be set pretty well for hurricane season.

cats and chickens

This morning I walked the dog and there was a kitten in our yard, I went and got some cat food and fed the kitten. The chickens and the cat were sharing the catfood and I wish I had my camera but I think it’s at work. Although the chickens were at least twice a big as the cat, they would grab a piece of food and jump back like they thought the cat was going to eat them. The cat ignored them.
The OI Girl wants a second dog.
I don’t think my Dawg would never get along with a cat.


Finally a Friday, and they’re calling for increased clouds and rain again. Dammmmmmmn. I feel like I haven’t had a weekend in a long time. Clouds and rain void it out. In my opinion..


The OI Girl’s been a little cranky lately, so I took her out last night to a restaurant she’s been wanting to go to. Mezza
It was nice inside and the food was good, but the service was lacking. We were laughing about it at the restaurant.
It seems like the waitstaff doesn’t have assigned tables, so everybody waits on everybody. Which is another way of saying that nobody waits on anyone!
We probably won’t be going back.

Oh yeah, I forgot, Yesterday, when I went to give blood, they couldn’t get any out of me. They poked both arms, and found nice veins, but my veins roll and collapse, and they only got a little blood then quit after about half an hour! Ha Ha Funny Funny!


It’s been very busy at work, I keep waiting for it to slow down, but it never does.
After all the rain from Dolly, before she was Dolly, our front porch door swelled and is difficult to open. I bought a plane and am trying to fix it. That’s what I did yesterday afternoon.

Also I got a new dive computer, a Shearwater Pursuit. It rocks!

This morning I’m going to give blood.

A Joke For Ya


A blonde, wanting to earn some extra money, decided to hire herself out as a “handy-woman” and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood. She went to the front door of the first house, and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do.

“Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch,” he said, “How much will you charge me?”
The blonde quickly responded, “How about $50?” The man agreed and told her that the paint and everything she would need were in the garage.

The man’s wife, hearing the conversation, said to her husband, “Does she realize that our porch goes all the way around the house?”
He responded, “That’s a bit cynical, isn’t it?”
The wife replied, “You’re right. I guess I’m starting to believe all those ‘dumb blonde’ jokes we’ve been getting by e-mail lately.”

A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.
“You’re finished already?” the husband asked.
“Yes,” the blonde replied, “and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.”
Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50.00 and handed it to her.

“And by the way,” the blonde added, “it’s not a Porch, it’s a Lexus.”

Mini Hurricane

We had a mini Hurricane last night, I rekkon it might still be going on.
My porch railing for damaged when a big ladder fell on it and a chair.. And a lot of my seedling potted plants seem to be just plain old gone!

I guess we won’t be doing any diving this weekend!
