Baby Eats Baby


Yesterday, I was getting ready to cook some chicken and shrimps on the grill, and the dawgs started barking, I yelled at them to SHADDUP! NO BARKING! But they kept right on. I walked out to see if they needed a good whoopin, then saw the reason for their excitement. Two cows, a Mamma and a Baby Bull, obviously escapees from somewhere, were in the yard. Some boys on bicycles were there and said the cows were just loose. The boys tied the Mamma to a tree and the Baby Bull stayed pretty close to her. Then the Baby came over and started eating two of my baby coconut trees!! I called the Police to ask who to call about wild cows, and went down there and shooed the Baby Bull away from my my baby trees. Babies Eating Babies! What is the world coming to?
Shoulda had beef instead of chicken!


Two cow posts in a row, whoda ever thunkit?

Late Post

I had an outside broadcast this morning, and had to leave home early, so I couldn't post.

But here I am now.

OI Girl and I had a good dinner last night. It was her birthday. We got dressed up and went out. I wore socks.

Here's some sunset pics from our back porch the other day

alright weekend

It was an alright weekend, I planted a coconut tree and a papaya tree, Hopefully they'll live.
I was whacking weeds and my weed whacker is screwing up, no power, and won't stay running. I cleaned the air filter, which was clean, and cleaned the spark gap, which was clean, and I have new fuel. I did everything in the manual that is says to do, the next thing is take it in. Guess what? Nobody on the island works on them, apparently.
It's a new frikkin weed whacker, it doesn't even have 15 hours on it.

Todays the OI Girls BDay. We're having dinner out tonight at a restaurant she picked. Luca

A Strange And Wonderful New Disease

I woke up this morning and one of my first thoughts was 'gotta go to work' then I remembered it was Saturday.

I was a little worried, yesterday afternoon, The OI Girl and I were having Popsicles, and suddenly, I noticed a strange discoloration on the OI Girls tongue, I'm thinking she has a new and wonderful strange disease!!

Back to the beach pics

After yesterdays refreshing post, I have been requested to "Get back to the beach pics". So here's some:
It's easy to post pics when I haven't got anything else to post about. It's just another week at work. I took these yesterday during my lunchtime beach walk.

I don't know if you want to see this

Remember when the Dawgs had diarrhea? Well I took them to the vet and got pills. One of them started pooping normally. I was telling the OI Girl I never saw the other one poop since I started the pills. She has been saying he poops fine now. But I never saw him. When I got to work, she had emailed me the proof!
Disgusting! I laughed till I cried when I opened the email!

The Movie 'Changeling'

We rented the movie, Changeling last night. Wow.
If it wasn't a true story, you'd never believe it could happen.

I went to bed thinking of it, I woke up thinking of it.

It is a good movie you should watch. Especially if you're a Mom

Good Weekend

Two Four Eye Fishes
Good weekend! Good Valentines Day. I gave the OI Girl a seahorse pendant and necklace, she gave me a box of chocolate cigars.
We went to the beach and diving I took the above pics. Saturday was cloudless, sunny and HOT!
I did get called into work Saturday morning for a couple hours, almost missing my dive. But all turned out well!

Shitty Afternoon

Yesterday when I got home, I found that Sheba had had a major accident in her kennel. A Double Dose of Dangerous Deadly Doggie Diarrhea. Out of sympathy, or perhaps enticed by the heady aroma, Ditto crapped on the back porch as well. . . FOUR TIMES.
Poor Sheba was covered in it, her face, back, tail. She had even gotten crap on the ceiling of her kennel!
I slid the whole thing out on the back porch, donned rubber gloves and swim trunks, got out the garden hose and dog shampoo, and let her out of the kennel. I gave her a half-a-bottle shampooing and took her outside, where Ditto already was. Then I disassembled the kennel, hosed it and scrubbed it. Then I hosed and scrubbed the whole back porch.

When the OI Girl got home, it was pretty much cleaned up, but Sheba was still stinkin' so we gave her another bath, this time with half a bottle of 'No More Tears' baby shampoo.

I think she still stinks.

Poor Sheba was so humiliated.

I should have taken pictures.

Had a pretty good weekend. It was windy but on Sunday the houe was blocking the wind and it was pretty sunny so I got to defrost a bit.

This is my 1111th post. Cool, huh? It's cool because all the numbers are ones! I am very easily amused.
To celebrate, I'm posting more pictures:
Here's a metal frog on our back porch
We had BLT's for lunch Saturday
Another bug
This is a pic of a plane flying over that I enhanced.

(Click to enlarge, especially the bug and the jet. . .And the BLT, and the frog)

13 years and a day

I didn't realize till late last night that yesterday was my 13th anniversary on the island. Now I can say I've been here 13 years and not 12.

It is bloody freezing here today and last night! Wind chill down in the 50's I've heard!

Brown teeth

This morning I went to the dentists for a cleaning.
I was contemplating having coffee after that, but I made a pot and now I'm drinking it.
I'll try to keep em clean this time. I've been flossing like hell, but I get stains.

Blog maintenance

I rearranged my sidebar, and resized a few items to make it appear as a sidebar on Internet Explorer, and not a bottom-bar.

Also I added a link for 365 internet radio.

And if somebody'd write in my Shoutmix chatbox, I'd be eternally grateful!

Pretty Good weekend

It was a pretty good weekend after all. I'm glad The Steelers won the Superbowl because I am still mad at the Cardinals for leaving St. Louis. We had a lot of fun Sunday,
The OI Girl washed her hair.
We cut Shebas hair, but you can't really tell from this pic.
Ditto went out and caught some rays, during the few sunny minutes we had. (He's really a white dog, who maintains a good tan)
And last night I made Cornish Game Hens on the Grill.
They weren't as big as it looks here.
AND the OI Girl had a cigar with me, a rare event. She was very proud of her ash!

SO it turned out to be a pretty good weekend.

Dismal cold weekend

It was another dismal, cold windy weekend.
Didn't do much, gave Sheba a haircut. She handled it pretty well. I can't really tell the difference looking at her, but we took a lot of hair off. Next time I'll cut it SHORT.
No diving this weekend, Super Bowl is today. Good excuse to go out and smoke a cigar somewhere.

This is a cool video, a 1926 Snowmobile.
