Hiya it’s me the Border Collie. I was bamboozled. I was tricked into a car ride early in the morning. I shoulda known something was up when Far Side set her alarm and took off with me in the wee hours of the morning…it was a little past 8AM. We had been up and out earlier and were on our second sleep. We often do that. We get up at dark o’clock and go outside together to make sure I am peeing and pooping and then we go back to sleep…feeling much relieved. I take turns waking them up, sometimes just for fun I wake both of them up.
I went to the Dogs Paw to see Deana. I guess I got the works with hypoallergenic shampoo and NO stinky perfume. The perfume makes us all sneeze and get headaches. Cross me off the list!
I missed most of the lawn mowing/leaf mulching. I think someone was driving around like a mad woman trying to mulch leaves as they hit the ground. There is still plenty of them to drag into the house with my fluffy tail.
The fireplace repairman was here, turns out Far Side knew him when he was a little kid. He adjusted the pilot light in the fireplace and tested it all out with some fancy smancy meters…and declared it safe…Far Side will not be getting a bird. Since all the gas problems she has had a bird on her brain.
The other furnace ( High Efficiency Propane) is working just hunky dory. There was some discussion about what temperature the thermostat should be set at…when Far Side gets cold she gets cranky. Far Guy got the propane bill the other day..he said bad word and really bad word..as he was charged $5.29 a gallon. Obviously it was a clerical error, although I heard that Far Side was in that office and complained about the customer service, the price of propane, the leak that they fixed improperly and could still be leaking but won’t be able to repair come winter and just about everything else at that stupid gas company. To hear Far Guy tell it, that office gal was drawn and quartered right there on her desk. No siree you never want to be on Far Sides bad side.
I love her even if she is kinda cranky most days, usually I put my head on her knee and drool a bit and she says “OH Chance” and I know she feels much better:)
