Max is trying to stay busy

Hello and welcome back to the kind of boring  Dogpound town.  This does not happen too often but it has been kind of quiet around here of late.  Max got his winter trim and I made the groomer take out all his brown highlights. He was starting to look like one of those teens that put streaks of different color in their hair so they will stand out.  I told him flat out that he was just plain too old for that kind of thing.  Who knows, if I am not firm now, next time he will be asking to get a tattoo.  LOL  I have taken up the guitar [again]…it looks so easy on TV, but I am having problems reading the notes between the lines.  I mean, I can tell the top line notes…and I can tell the bottom line notes…but I have a difficult time telling which line the note is on when it is in the middle area.  Fortunately, the instructor puts the music sheets inside a plastic protector sheet which allows me to use a felt erasable pen to jot down the proper string and fret.  Probably not a good thing in the long run, but right now that is going to have to do unless I can memorize every page and pretend I am reading the notes.  Anyway, since I need to make time for practice, lots more practice, I will cut this short and fill in the rest with some smiles.  See ya around next time.

  • At a recent wedding party someone yelled, “All the married men please stand next to the one person who has made your life worth living.”  The bartender was almost crushed to death.
  • Know why a room full of married people looks so empty? There’s not a single person in it.
  • Hear about the flight where a woman gave birth on the plane? The airline said that the mother and her new $40 carry-on are doing just fine.
  • What do you call a boom-a-rang that doesn’t come back? Answer: A stick!


I have seen something similar to this where they leave out all the vowels…but this is the first one that used numbers to accomplish the same thing.

That is enough for today.  As always be good, play safe and remember a firm foundation will last you a lifetime.  

JR and Max
