Yesterday I was a dog. Today I'm a dog. Tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. Sigh! There's so little hope for advancement.
Charles M. Schulz (1922 - 2000), (Snoopy)

PARAPROSDOKIANS (Winston Churchill loved them) are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and frequently humorous:

1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.

2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

5. We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public.

6. War does not determine who is right - only who is left..

7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

8. They begin the evening news with 'Good Evening,' then proceed to tell you why it isn't.

9. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

10. Buses stop in bus stations. Trains stop in train stations. On my desk is a work station.

11. I thought I wanted a career. Turns out I just wanted paychecks.

12. I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

13. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

14. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

15. Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.

16. A clear conscience is the sign of a fuzzy memory.

17. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

18. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.

19. I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

20. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

21. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

22. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

23. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

24. I am neither for nor against apathy.

25. Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

26. I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather, not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

27. How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

28. Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

29. The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

30. Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won't expect it back.

31. Hospitality: making your guests feel like they're at home, even if you wish they were.

32. A bus is a vehicle that runs twice as fast when you are after it as when you are in it.

33. When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire Department usually uses water.

34. Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go.

Re: Sunday - 02/03/13 11:46 AM

Super Sunday ya'll puppy

Who is gearing up for the game? I'm heading up to make some dips when I finish this post. Son is up there now making guacomole. He has a friend coming over to watch with us. Before I go up to cook though, I need to vacuum. The dogs have contributed to the hairballs quite generously.

After the vac and the dips, Soot and I will start on the 2nd loft. I don't think we will finish it today in light of the Super Bowl timing, but that really won't matter cos the boys are supposed to go to mom's tonight. This one will be easier as we learned the do's and don't's on the first one. We both have very sore tight backs from yesterday, but that is ok.

It's supposed to be a beautiful day but don't think we will have time to take the 4 legged ones walking. We shall see.

Last night Soot and I came down to watch Pirates with son and the boys. About 1/2 way through I looked over at the couch, and there was son asleep with the Per next to him on the couch asleep and the Cully on the floor next to the couch asleep. It was really cute.

Back later wave

Well, it's 11 am and my huge pot of chili is almost done, a dozen pork chops are done, everyone has had their breakfast protein shakes, Peter's lunch is packed and he is off to work, hubby is at the club, and I threw in a load of wash. I am finally ready to sit and start my workday. Are we having fun yet?

Gail, how many more treatments? Prayers you won't have any more sick days. hearts

Hi Boomies!
Been sick for a week, but think the worst is over. Still left with a bad cough.
Made it out to the market for badly needed items, and now washing my bedding, while watching the Puppy Bowl. No football in this house.
It's a grey, gloomy day. We sure have missed our sun so far. Kitty half-time now, gotta go!
Enjoy your super bowl day, or whatever!

Re: Sunday - 02/03/13 06:51 PM

It's terribly quiet around here. The Superbowl must have started. I'm not watching. I'll just check in from time to time. Getting some yard work and vacuuming done today instead. I'll watch the infamous commercials later on the internet.

The SealCam is working well. Today, the same 2-3 protesters were there, this time with 2 beach umbrellas (huge) and 3 chairs, a guitar, loads of other 'packs'. Before long, all the spectators who were respecting the rope barrier, got sucked in by the protesters and there were now 20-25 people and children on the wrong side of the rope.

Then the camera panned over to show a park ranger quietly talking to small groups of people, who immediately went back to the correct side of the rope. He did not interact with the protesters, but the camera zoomed in close on them and stayed there. At one time it looked like the male was trying to feed the seals. That's a strict NO NO. One huge seal got right up to his hand. Could have lost that hand! That was just before the ranger stepped in.

Now the protest group seems to be packing up and moving on. Way too much fuss and endangering people and animals to 'prove a point'. Hope it all calms down now that it's getting towards evening. Seal need to lie on the beach and sleep and they only give birth at night. Neat, the camera is a 'night vision' so we can watch. I'm hoping to see one born.

Off to not watch the Superbowl.

Re: Sunday - 02/03/13 06:58 PM

Andrea, hope you get to feeling 100% quick.

Sorta, maybe they need to turn the cameras off so the protesters get bored and go away. So sad.

Back to the corner again....

Hi guys,
Watching the Super Bowl. I'm rooting for the 49ers because my sister lives in San Fran. Doesn't look promising for them though. They just scored a TD but have a ways to go before they catch up. GO 49ers!

Ana you need something to do my Dear. You have much too much time on your hands. rotfl Really. You're making me tired. PLease slow down.
