Shopping on Date Night

Kolby Fehlberg-BurnsComment

Husband and I went to Home Depot the other night to pick up a few things he needed.  I wandered around looking for stocking stuffers. As usual, I finished first and was waiting for him by the checkout.

I guess I was too close to the stand because I was asked over and over if I was in line. I moved down a bit but was still asked that.

Again, I was asked "Are you in line?"

"No, I am looking for a husband. Oh, I know it's Christmas, but I'm not shopping for a husband!"

"I have one." I said.

The guy said "That's funny!"

It was our 31st wedding anniversary. Dinner and Home Depot.

Thanks for listening.






A Little Peace on our street

Kolby Fehlberg-BurnsComment

This support for a real estate sign had been here for months with no sign.

Then this banner appeared.  I like it.

But now they came and took the post away and left the banner discarded.

It was a nice place to stop and look around and feel at peace.

Too Bad.

Thanks for listening.



Nope, don't like changes

Kolby Fehlberg-BurnsComment

We have a dog, Sadie, and a cat, Lilo.  Their food bowls and mats were getting old and nasty, so yesterday I set out to get some new ones.

Here is Sadie with her kayak.

So I went to a bunch of stores looking for ones where Sadie might not spill as much water and food.  Unlike our last dog, Rissa, she won't eat what falls out of her bowl.  She does however eat any other crumbs she finds around the house.

I found this one. Perfect. It's metal, great color, can be cleaned up easy and repainted when it get too gross.

Yesterday, running into the house after a day on the kayak, Sadie heads for her bowl.  Dead stop and about face!  Doesn't want anything to do with it. She won't even go into the kitchen. Hasn't eaten since yesterday morning before the big switch.

On the other hand Lilo, the cat, got two new white bowls with a clean mat. Doesn't seem to have a problem with them.

Sadie doesn't like change.

Thanks for listening.
