Climb up here and sit on this table – in the middle. Don’t let your feet hang down where the sharks can eat them! Hoist the sail Matey, we’ll catch the wind just right,” I call out to my grandsons through cupped hands around my mouth.
I drove along Hunt Highway punching the cruise control button in and out as those stupid Pinal County speed limit signs went from 45 MPH to 35 MPH to 25 MPH and back to 45 MPH. How stupid is that – actually it isn't that stupid because they raise a hell of a lot of revenue this way. The entire county is nothing more than a gigantic revenue enhancement speed trap. An army of “meter maid” type sheriff deputies has descended on the East Valley to harrass and degrade the good citizenry and avoid contact with “bad guys”. They actually swarm in feeding frenzy groups of three or four at a time rushing up and down the highway pulling over their victims of organized legal extortion. And we voted for a Sheriff who ran on getting rid of radar vans! Boy, were we misguided! Talk about unintended consequences - we got nailed there.
I recently read a posting by e-mail from a fellow pet owner who had all sorts of recommendations for setting up “cleaning stations” around the house to deal with various pet deposits of urine, vomit, and hairballs. They incorporated multiple spray bottles, assorted cleaning fluids, and several types of wiping and blotting materials, all packed neatly into little plastic carrier trays.
