(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday ~ December 26, 2018

Cuppa yummyAs you look around after Christmas with your morning cuppa to reflect on what just happened, we hope you experienced a ‘wagnificent howliday.’ Between all your family get-togethers, football, basketball and the never-ending bowl games beginning soon, are you starting to look forward now to thoughts on the New Year celebration? I’m still in a food coma status and think the cleanse will begin sooner rather than later. Gah…from where DID all these sweet treats come?! Any one need some fudge?

Happy Howlidays

Nearly Wordless Wednesday ~ December 19, 2018

Hard to believe it’s almost Christmas. The crazy frenetic pace may be getting to you so take a moment to enjoy a smile. I know exactly how that little guy felt just a month ago. The only thing missing is a mango margarita.

Think this could this count as a Christmas tree in a pinch? I’m so not ready.

Nearly Wordless Wednesday

The election is over, there were some tough contests producing winners and losers. Now the hard part begins. Governing. To those who are disappointed, I urge you to continue to fight for your principles. To everyone, I urge you to be kind and definitely no gloating. We have a long way to go to heal a country that is quite fractious. That said, I will be reflecting on the various outcomes while rejuvenating my spirit by joining my family at a ‘secret location’ beginning this weekend. I can’t make promises that I will be able to stay connected next week or whether or not posts will be published but I’d love to hear where you think I’m going from this photo in the comments.

If you’ve been meaning to but haven’t gotten around to it yet, be sure to check out the E-shop. New items were recently added. Any order placed before the weekend will be shipped this week. Otherwise, orders thereafter received will go out once I return. Make sure you have a great rest of the week.

Not Quite Wordless Wednesday ~ October 31, 2018

From our house to yours, we wish you a “Yappy Howloween.” While Sam is totally done wearing any costumes after the weekend’s festivities, Elsa was not equally as game for a shot in the limelight. This witches hat appeared for a brief second, just long enough for the shutter to release. Then it became a ‘toy’ and we all know what happens to Elsa’s toys. 😈 We hope your celebration is full of smiles.

Happy Howloween

Almost Wordless Wednesday ~ October 24, 2018

Sam & ER nurses

Sam drew a bit of a crowd yesterday in the ER Dept. Two more doctors and another nurse joined the group right after this photo was taken. Dang, if only he liked people, although this might actually qualify as a harem in some books.

Happy mid-week. We’re back at West Pines today hopefully bringing more happiness.

Horrible Bosses on Wordy Wednesday

Over the past weekend it seemed apparent I needed some serious comedy after a weekend hospital visit to rejuvenate so I spent some time cruising through the On Demand list of comedic claptrap and came across Horrible Bosses (2011) with Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis. No, I did not watch much of the Bronco game…remember I said comedic, not horribly tragic (could there be a worse team in football right now?). This fun release is 106 minutes of pretty mindless silliness that made me smile at some of the lines. Having worked for my own version of a Horrible Boss back in the day, I began to wonder if I was being a horrible boss to the Ranch hands after handing out today’s safety memo at our morning ‘Editor’s meeting.’Elsa & Sam ~ editor's meeting


~ SAFETY MEMO ~

To:            All Ranch Hands
FROM:     Resident  Horrible Boss Management
Date:         October 17, 2018

It has come to the attention of management that adherence to promulgated safety concerns are being ignored. Safety of management on daily walks is paramount to the continually providing of benefits (meals, treats, romps in the snow, endless patience on potty breaks during winter weather, etc.). See New Rules and Poodle Rules for specifics.

Henceforth it would be most appreciated if (a) Sam, you didn’t walk in front of management on walks and (b) Elsa, you would not walk behind management’s back to get back into simpatico balance while Sam executes his “let’s cut in front of management” move, simultaneously.

The weather has gotten significantly cooler and gloves are now the accoutrement du jour for walks, please note it will take time getting used to holding two leashes, two poop bags, while keeping everything upright without slipping on wet leaves (or worse) with gloves. No doubt management will make the necessary adjustments with time and practice but your cooperation during the transition would be appreciated.

Please contact Management if you have any concerns or questions. Remember the door is always open to the bathroom since personal boundaries were abandoned years ago. Thank you.

Signed,
The Ranch Manager


What do you think the odds are that the Ranch hands will think I’m a horrible boss and do you think there’s any chance they’ll comply with the latest safety request? Yeah, I thought the same thing. Maybe I should remind them that I’m not a dentist.
