Dead Fish, Dead Birds and a Bath Day for the Dogs!

Going to church, like I did when I was a kid, equipped me with two very important things:  loads of Catholic guilt and a firm grasp of the signs of the Apocalypse.  A small scale apocalyptic sign I’ve discovered, is when in an effort to save money you take over the bathing and grooming of your four canines.  This is one of my goals today and I’m looking about as forward to it as a budget retreat with poetry readings.  But it has to be done and I’m determined to make it fun for me and the dogs.  This will be achieved through the blessings of a strong Tom Collins and large-sized Milk Bones.  And seriously it could be so much worse, it isn’t like thousands of birds are falling dead from the sky Read More and thousands of fish are washing up dead Read More on the shores of the Arkansas River for Christ’s sake.
Another goal that directly ties into the goal of the dog washing by assisting me in procrastinating toward reaching that goal, is a Dyson calendar for a friend.  She needed some convincing about the benefits of the Dyson vacuum Read More.  She has since purchased one, but that won’t stop me from making a pin up calendar highlighting the WOWZA factor of the vacuum.  Unemployment allows for such ridiculous uses of your time.  I did however find myself seriously cracking up at my photo shoot.  This naturally prompted me to share some with you.  If this doesn’t make you want to buy a Dyson vacuum then you have no soul.
