Deadliest Catch...

The aged one has spoken. The old, long-winded, train-chasing, lawnmower loving, grandchild-spoiling, son-torturing father has written a comment on my blog. This is a momentous day. He wanted to see my pictures, but only slowly took the step of actually looking at the few I have posted on-line. I am so proud! I shall reward him by showing him the whole shebang when I get the chance.

There is another reason that this is a momentous day. The new season of Deadliest Catch began tonight. Over the years we have become increasingly fond of this Discovery Channel show. By we, I include Cora only incidentally, it is unclear whether she enjoys it quite as much as I do, though, I would never say that she does not, since she seems to have no issues over me watching it.

Today, I worked maintenance and painted. It was not a bad day, except for one thing. The dogs escaped…again. The city dog catcher knows my in-laws, and he knows my dogs belong over there, if not in my yard. He took Toby to my mother-in-law, she called Cora. The dog catcher called my father-in-law. My mother-in-law called my father-in-law and my boss. Cora called me. It was about 930 when everyone began to tell me the dogs were out. Oh, sweet joy.

It is a wonder the dogs survived. It was, indeed, a deadliest catch...the dogs should not have allowed me to catch them. they wallowed in the misery of being caught.

I like the show, too. I guess we have some work to do to try and dog proof the yard until then they are grounded!! It is pretty bad when the dog catcher knows your dogs and Toby just jumps in his truck to go see Pepper.

It sounds like your dog's are becoming the talk of the town. Everybody is talking about the dogs and the dogs are lapping it up.
The next thing you know, those dogs are going to be running city hall. "Toby for Mayor" Yeaa !!!
