Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. I have two things to cover. First I want to bring to everyone’s attention something I mentioned in my last article. As a reminder, if you missed that article, I mentioned that my Master had told me last week that I need to get an article in ASAP or they would be forced to run an “oldie but goodie.” I was sure I had submitted an article for the week but you have to listen to the boss, however, I cautioned that my Master had been wrong in the past…and sure enough…after I burn the midnight oil to get that article out, he admits he found the missing article. TOLD YOU SO! Ok, that is out of my system. The second item I want to cover: I want to send a big shout out to the person who sent me a re-supply of animal crackers. They were not in the old style cardboard box [in a bag], but that is OK, I appreciate the effort. Now I did notice something else different, there were a number of bold highlighted statements on the bag that were never present on the old style cartons. What were those statements you ask? Well, I will tell you; ”low fat,” “0g Trans,” “0 mg Cholesteral,” “13 crackers equal 100 calories.” Definitely the sign of the times. Kind of makes you wonder how we ever got this far.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact. – Henry James

SPEAKING PART
Billy’s father picked him up from school to take him to a dental appointment. Knowing the acting roles for the school play were being posted that day, he asked Billy if he got a part. Billy enthusiastically announced that he’d gotten a part. “I play a man who’s been married for twenty years.” “That’s great, son. Keep up the good work and before you know it they’ll giving you a speaking part.”

BUSINESS AS USUAL
An airliner was having engine trouble, and the pilot instructed the cabin crew to have the passengers take their seats and get prepared for an emergency landing. A few minutes later, the pilot asked the flight attendants if everyone was buckled in and ready. “All set back here, Captain,” came the reply, “except one lawyer who is still going around passing out business cards.”

I think that is all I have today. Need to rush down to the post office and get this sent by certified mail…you know…just in case. As always be good, do good, play safe and remember to always keep a copy.
