Is it Bad? I'm sitting nursing a beer and resting after putting siding on the shed. Here, See? Proof!
I went out and took a bunch of garbage to the dump. Mostly it was boxes we've been storing in the shed for years. But it was also a ton of sheet rock that the builders left in the shed...it wasn't in the best condition and it kept my new door from opening all the way. So, I got rid of it.
The day would have been more constructive, but my morning was fouled.
Toby was excited that I was working outside. I opened the back gate so I could back the truck in. He rushed past me, I assumed to pee on things. When i turned back, he had gotten in the cab through the opened driver's side door. I unloaded the ladders that i hauled around for a week and then began loading garbage in...he was still there. Waiting for a ride.
I finished and we got going. I decided he could go with me, since he obviously REALLY wanted to go for a ride. I got within blocks of the dump and felt for my wallet...not there! ARGH!
I turned around and went back to the house and rushed in for my wallet. I got it and off we went again. I got to the dump and was just getting ready to pull onto their scale when I noticed a little pink sign: CASH ONLY. There were some muttered expletives, which Toby kindly ignored and I made an emergency U-turn and headed for town...I arrived at the bank and realized I had a check to deposit and so i did that AND got some cash.
I made it to the dump again. This time all went smoothly and I got rid of everything. I came home and tried to work in the house again...it's a beautiful day here...see:
Toby, all this time, had accompanied me everywhere. When I was in the alley, he stayed close by...only straying further afield to pee on things. More than a few times I looked down from the ladder to see him sunbathing just a few feet away. As far as working at home goes, it was a pretty good day!
This is the before picture:
Now, I really should get up and finish that laundry and maybe get moving on dinner...
Here is proof that Toby sunbathes:
Until next time!
