( You all will understand the picture, when you get to the end of the post!)
Becky and Shadow!
Sorry I was out of the loop yesterday. I just came home from work, and was so tired that all I could think about was a nap! And yes, I know that pic in the funny looked like the Olympic symbol, rather that a national symbol. But I was really so tired I didn't think about it. It was the comment underneath I was laughing at anyway!
And we never made it to B & N's to get the latest Harry Potter book. I just was too out of it to make the drive. Well, we'll pick it up later. It's not like there won't be thousands of copies around. And I have to work tomorrow ( since I had the last 2 weekends off) so today I spend cleaning house, before we go to the BIL's as usual. So boring is the order of the day here! Laundry, floors and general clean-up, in the hopes that I won't have to go back and do it all again Monday. Which I have off as well, but that's the day I go get that bone test, and see the Surgeon. I also have to register Kimmie for Kindergarten! WOO HOO! The last of the kiddies in school! I know, I'll probably be sad on the day, seeing her hand in Andy's as they go off to the bus stop. But it also means the end of day-care bills, and that for one I'll be greatful for. $100 a week is going to go a LOOONNNGGG way to lighten the load finacially around here! I mean, after all, I've been paying THAT bill for almost 15 years all in all. I think that's long enough- don't you??
Well, I'd better get busy here. And since that "Friday Funny" was such a dud, you all get another one! Don't ever accuse me of not having a sense of humor! This one I think everyone will like, since most of my readers are avid Dog or Cat lovers.....

TOP 10 DOG PEEVES ABOUT HUMANS
1. Blaming your farts on me... not funny... not funny at all!
2. Yelling at me for barking ... I'M A FRIGGIN' DOG!
3. Taking me for a walk, then not letting me check stuff out. Exactly whose walk is this anyway? 4. Any trick that involves balancing food on my nose ... stop it!
5. Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons. Now you know why we chew your stuff up when you're not home.
6. The slight of hand, fake fetch throw. You fooled a dog! Whoooo Hoooooooo -- what a proud moment for the top of the food chain.
7. Taking me to the vet for the "big snip", then acting surprised when I freak out every time we go back!
8. Getting upset when I sniff the crotches of your guests. Sorry, but I haven't quite mastered that handshake thing yet.
9. Dog sweaters. Hello? Haven't you noticed the fur?
10. How you act disgusted when I lick myself. Look, we both know the truth, you're just jealous
