You Are a Blueberry Flavored Popsicle

You are a very unusual person. For you, summer is all about adventure and travel.

You are brilliant and bright. Your mind is always sharp and working at full capacity.

You seek out new and different experiences. You get bored very easily.

You are very creative. Of all of the types, you're the most likely to invent a new popsicle.

Hey Sherrie ...where are you?

Right here!

Took yesterday off and went to the beach with my sis and the nephews. Got a mild sunburn on the tops of my thighs of all places..painful but won't kill me. Have other weird spots where the sunscreen failed like the bend of my elbow on the right arm. Don't know how that happened.

We had a great time. There was a nice breeze off the water and for once I didn't have to stay in the sea with the boys. They entertained themselves. We went shell hunting and found some nice ones to make necklaces out of.

But I'm glad to be back at work...feel as if I'm neglecting you guys online...

sorry about that.

Cough cough..sniffle

Oh yes I have Al's cold or whatever it is. I started feeling icky yesterday so I rushed to the drug store and got a high dose of Vit C and some cold meds...I hope to head this cold off...or at least make is not so severe.

Had a nice weekend...went to see Lady BJ in Wilmington. Met her online years ago and we've been friends a long time. We went shopping and stuff. I had a nice time.

I had some things I wanted to write about but feel yukky and sleepy so I'll make this short and sweet.

PS... I got my SS card yesterday. I was shocked the Social Security Adminstration was so fast...sup with that?

Friday, July 25, 2008

hey... it's MY identity

The Social Security Adminstration is in a new building and I had to get a new SS card. So I went at lunch time on Wednesday. The security officer acted like Barney Fife...I swear he was a total riot all because he thought he was so important. He kept telling everyone to make sure our cell phones were on vibrate because 'this is a government building', although no 'cell phone' signs were up. And that's how he ended his sentences: "...because this is a government building." One kid ran all over the place and around our chairs and he told the grandmother "Madame secure that child. This is a government building." I swear I almost started laughing.

There was a partial wall between the waiting room and the 3 windows you were called to--not any privacy at you can discuss your SS issue and everyone can hear you talk to the SS worker behind the window. It has been drilled in my head that we are to keep our SS#'s when I heard the workers ask for SS#s and people answering back with their numbers... it totally shocked me. I could have written down at least 6 different numbers and their private info like..birth dates, answers to secret questions like "what's your mother's maiden name."

When it was my turn I wrote down my number, held it up so she could read it and the dumbass woman called it back to me! She wanted me to tell her what address I wanted my card sent too and I said "The same as on my license" and she called it back to me!! Here I am trying to keep my info private and the SS worker is shouting it out! Drove me nuts! I'm thinking of writing a letter to the editor of our newspaper.

Am I wrong in thinking that our government is a collective ass?

The Dark Knight Movie

My brother and I saw it tonight and it ....


5 *'s... hell I'll give it 10 *'s

Two thumbs up and two big toes up...

It was great ...I know I keep saying it but it's true.

I wasn't all that impressed with the first one... Chris Bale never grew on me and I don't care much for Katie Holmes...

But I must say that Chris Bale was awesome... Heath Ledger did an incredible job as the joker... I forgot it was Heath doing the acting a few times..he really grabbed the joker persona and was a big scene stealer.

The whole cast was great and I know that once this hits the stores in DVD form, I'll be right there...grabbing one too.


He spent last night with me...and is staying with my brother today.

I was really tired when I got home but it's hard to say no to him, so he ended up at my house. We watched some Icarly and then he hit the PC to play some games. He has a huge book to read so I made him get off the PC was such a struggle. He kept defying me.

(We play this game when either or both boys disagrees with me to the point of driving me crazy. I ask, "Who am I?" Their stock answer is 'the adult.' Then I say, "Who are you?" Their answer is "the child."

But ole Will threw a monkey wrench into the mix. I said, "William, who am I?"

He didn't blink an eye, and answered "You."

What a day off!

I'll write about it later ...once I sort it out in my mind. Why is a day off mid-week more exhausting than a weekend off???? I really believe that aliens run our Social Security offices...

Wednesday, July 23, 2008


You know... and I have to explain this to my brother and nephews all the time...that when you buy a PC at a really great price the mouse, keyboard and speakers are all crap that will go out quicker than the hard drive. That's why the whole set-up is so cheap..or partly the reason.

The mouse finally died on this pc and I purchased a new one last week at a reasonable price. Now a week later, it's squeaking...I wondered if there's a real mouse inside so I took it apart and there isn't one.

My brother and the nephews keep telling me to fix I'm the Goddess of Mice or something.

I could take it back I guess but I won't. I think it adds character to our PC experience.

A sorta rant

I have a few moments before I run off to do all the fun things I need to do for today and since I was logged in from replying to Robert's blog post about a 'monster' of my youth, I figured I would pop out a post.

Yesterday while shuffling stuff around in my purse to rescue a stick of gum, I accidentally removed my billfold and placed it beside my purse...and when I left work it stayed behind. I didn't notice until this morning when I looked for it to put some $$ in it that was in my short's pocket from the day I had to drive to work at 8 am to get it...and while I was out I decided to gas up.

The closest station from the studio is called "Go Gas" and it's fairly cheap, so there's always a line. You either pay at a drive thru booth or at the pump. Now... I always pull up and go to the tank at the end of the lane. It's tempting to stop at the very first but that means that no one can get to the two tanks ahead of me. So I pull up. It's not hard to up a few yards and the others behind you can pull up and get tanked too.

This morning... while I was gassing up, I watched three cars stop at the first tank on three lanes, knowing there were others behind them wanting to gas up and couldn't because there's no room to pull around them to get to the waiting tanks. I always get a little miffed at people who do this to me... so I silently gave the cars the evil eye and hoped that one day soon they'll have to sit forever behind a vehicle that could of pulled up.

One thing about cars that do this is that they are never in a'll see them searching for change or something on the floor board or they have to talk on their cell phone for a moment or two, while you idle behind them.

I'm thinking about getting a bull horn so that I can yell at drivers and people on the road (like bikes that ride in the middle of the road) when they get on my nerves. Course I'll have to remember to roll the window down when I do this or I'll go deaf...

Tuesday seems like..

another Tuesday.

Boy is this month flying by!! Birthday madness starts July 31 with my sister's birthday. I'm geared up for it I guess.

I'm taking tomorrow off to take care of some business and see my eye doc. So if I don't blog or drop by your place to say hi..well, that's why.

Had a fun week. I made a new friend. A girl named Michele who's retired military and has a plant business. She's close to my age and very hippie girly and funny. She's a good story-teller. We had a light dinner at the Blue Moon Cafe Saturday night and then went to a coffee shop on Sunday. She introduced me to a lot of people at both places. If I do get my own business going, she'll be a great person to help me network and stuff.

I am glad I met her because I wasn't bored all weekend and didn't mind doing some house chores for Al who has been sick with a respiratory bug. I think it came from not having air for almost a week and there wasn't much circulation going on along with the cat being in the house... at least that's what I think. He sounded better today...

and he got roadrunner so now I'll be able to go online at his house. But to be honest, I doubt I'll do it much...Michele has a lot of things planned for us to the theatre and she's going to have a wine and cheese party soon.

I sorta worry that Al will think I've gone 'single' and will find someone while I'm out catting with Michele. He hasn't met her yet. I told him a while back that I was going to find some friends to hang out with while he's working and when he's off, I will be there with him. And I informed him a head of time about doing things with Michele.

When I got back to his house Sat night, I was in a fun and laughing mood...then he came home and was 'miserable.' None of my jobs were received, he grumbled about a lot of things and I had to quell my mood so that it didn't annoy him. I know he was sick and didn't feel all that great, so I didn't let it bother me.

Boy am I rambling on about things.

Back to work...

You Can Definitely Spot a Liar

Maybe you have good instincts. Or maybe you just have a lot of experience with liars.

Either way, it's pretty hard for someone to pull a fast one on you. You're like a human lie detector.

Your Seduction Style: Au Natural

You rank up there with your seduction skills, though you might not know it.

That's because you're a natural at seduction. You don't realize your power!

The root of your natural seduction power: your innocence and optimism.

You're the type of person who happily plays around and creates a unique little world.

Little do you know that your personal paradise is so appealing that it sucks people in.

You find joy in everything - so is it any surprise that people find joy in you?

You bring back the inner child in everyone you meet with your sincere and spontaneous ways.

Your childlike (but not childish) behavior also inspires others to care for you.

As a result, those who you befriend and date tend to be incredibly loyal to you.

You Are an "A-OK"

Your life philosophy can be summed up as, "Whatever will be, will be."

Your greatest wish is to live each day a little better than the next.

You are naturally calm and stable. Some people would call you a rock.

You feel one with the world. You are a spiritual person, though no one who knows you would guess it.

Weekend Reporting

Had a fun weekend. Al is sick though...I hope I don't catchy it. Made a new friend. Made a yummy dessert (see cooking blog) and am working my tushy off...

so I'll write more tomorrow.

TG.. TG..TG ...IF

Yippee... it's Friday. I'm taking tomorrow off and am so darn happy. Even if it's Raining right now and my truck window is cracked a little and it's probably raining on my seat.

It's Friday.. let's do a TGIF dance. Anyone know a fun one to do?

As happy as I 'girls' aren't. They hate the bra I chose for today. Let's hope there's no plan for a mutiny. They talk amongst themselves too much as is...

I've been downloading some free audio books online. If you want to know of one site that has free audio books (mainly the classics) let me know. I've downloaded "Treasure Island", "The Turn of the Screw--by Henry James", Stuff by HG Wells, etc... I love listening to these stories when I'm too tired to read at night.

Anyone been catching any of the "Fear Itself" shows? I've seen a few....and last night's was really good: Zombies! I am afraid of Zombies and almost didn't make it through the show. The ending was really good!

I have a confession to make. I secretly want to see Mama Mia!

Thursday, July 17, 2008


I had a great time with William yesterday. He was in a talkative mood and he talked while I had an early dinner. (He had already had his). One time while talking about his mom he said, "you know my other mom, Lisa"...his other mom! It blew my mind.

Anyway, he told me a long drawn out story that was funny and very well put together. He even did some dialogue between characters. Then I told him one and he loved it. I realized at that moment that for my challenge I would write a children's book... an adventure sort ...see if I can make it funny and exciting. The boys seem to really love my I think it will be a success.

Dad's been fighting with his doctor's office chicks and the local pharmacy. They can't seem to communicate regarding his medicine refills. Every month he waits until he's got two pills left in a prescription and then calls the refill in...but there's no refill and the pharmacy has to fax his doctor and so on... I told him today that he knows this is going to happen and not to wait so late to get things filled. I really have no patience for whining about things you can control!

One of my cousin's is really the worse for telling stuff without knowing if it's true. I guess I believed her on this certain situation that she spread some misguided untruths about because it is such an important thing and I would like to think she would be really sure the info was correct before saying anything. Heresay should be a crime... lol... oh boy there goes all the politicans in the world.

I'm sort of goofing off today with an old restoration order that the lady is paying $5 a month on. It's a very damaged piece and I'm about 45% done...and she overs over 60% on I just work at it once a month for a few days. She's on a budget and the cost of living has increased rapidly this she's not able to pay as much as she used to. I do the work and never pressure her for more money. I guess that's why I'm not rich as some people could get doing my job. But I believe in being fair.

I like it when I'm labeled as "Weird"

What Your Sunglasses Say About You

You are funky, freaky, and as weird as weird can be.

Your taste in everything is unusual and downright counter cultural.

You need to be shaded from uptight, judgmental people.

You feel sunniest when you can kick back and relax... without a care in the world.

Gil Grissom... no more on CSI? He's the heart of it. I could stand Sara being gone and it pains me a little that Warwick is dead...

but Gil..

I realize William Peterson is an actor and needs to try new things but it won't be the same without him or Warrick. I understand Sara is coming back.

I guess it will be ok..I'll adjust. I have to remember when Gil took a leave for a few weeks and they had the new CSI guy show up for a few episodes and then killed him once Gris got back.

Maybe I'll survive.. maybe CSI will too.

The Phone Rings

Around 4 or so, the phone rang yesterday at work. The caller ID was marked "Private." I answered, "Good afternoon, TLC studio. May I help you?"

A very smooth masculine voice said, "May I please speak with Sherrie Rose?"

I was silence for a moment. Only relatives call me "Sherrie Rose." I was curious so I said, "This is her."

"Hi there. Do you know who I am?" (I had no clue.)

"Your voice sounds familiar." IT did but... it could have been a voice from anyone I had dealt with at the studio or outside the studio... or in Greenville or ...wherever...the voice had an intimate quality and I assumed it was someone I might have dated a few times, because I remember all my loves--great and small. And he was no great or small love.

"It's Mike." (I hadn't dated a Mike in a looOOoong time...and how he got the studio number...well I don't know that part).

Then he went into all the things that had happened to him over the past 15 years...and I slowly remembered him--he was sort of a flame but...we never made it past 1st base--and my feelings towards him had been more on a friendship level than anything else. He had a bitter breakup at that time in his life and said a few things to me one day out of bitterness to women that ruffled my feathers. Once I am rubbed the wrong way, I am sort of done with a person.

From the sounds of what he said, his life hadn't changed any and he was still in a bad relationship or maybe at the end of it. I waited for him to get to the reason he called.

"...I am sick of her and her indecision between me and her ex-husband, so I took down my box of old address books. You know me, Sherrie Rose, I never throw anything out... and I went through them all, made a list of women who stay true to themselves, are honest and giving...and "Sherrie Rose" was at the top of a 3 name list."

He fell silence and I realized that was a high compliment from him so I said, "Thank you." And said nothing else and waited.

"So what have you been doing for the last 15 or so years?"

I said, "Working."

He asked, "Is life good?

I said, "Wonderful."

He asked, "Is there a man in Sherrie Rose's life?"

I said, "Yes."

He asked, "Is he solid? Is he sticking to your heart?"

I said, "Blissfully."

In a rush he said, "May you have a happy life, Sherrie Rose."

I said, "OK" and hung up the phone.

Staring at it I realized that another guy at the end of a bad relationship had let his fingers do the walking through his little black book(s) and found my name, called to see if I was available and now that he knows I'm not, is probably calling another woman using the same tactics.

I don't think I have ever done that, except a few times when I had heard some bad news about the person and called to express my sorrow or grief for them. But I've never looked to the past to find a replacement for the last person. I've always wanted to move on to the next love. I guess some people like to stay in familiar territory and so...they seek love with those women they once knew, ignoring all the reasons why they broke up with them in the first place.

Now I could have taken the time to get back at him for the things he said that caused me to say "Go to Hell." But I didn't. From what he said, he's been living it for a long time now.

I told one of my friends about the phone call and she laughed. "Sherrie, you gave him one word answers. That's so funny."

I felt I needed to answer him but I didn't feel he needed to know my private life. He lost that privilege years ago.

You Have a Fairly Strong Willpower

Temptation doesn't get the better of you all that often.

If you set your mind on a goal, you'll do your best to achieve it.

And while you don't have a perfect record with willpower, you do okay.

If you fall off the wagon with something, you're usually not off the wagon for long.

Pheww... this is reassuring

Your Bedroom Personality: Healthy

In the bedroom, you are open, honest, and giving.

You are the ideal partner in many ways! Anyone is lucky to be with you.

You see physical intimacy as an opportunity to grow and connect.

You are up for experimentation, but you don't require it.

Horror Scope

haha.. should have read this first, before starting a new project:

July 15, 2008

Scorpio (10/23-11/21)

Your ambition is growing larger than your current schedule can actually accommodate right now -- so you might find it pretty difficult to fit in any new projects, today. Maintenance is going to take up more of your day than new brainstorming will, but you will find a quiet comfort in it -- it's going to be a nice change of pace from all the hustle and bustle you've been experiencing for so long. Concentrate on finishing things -- you'll love checking things off your list.


The Husband last night... what a great story and truth be told, I hated it ended! I will read it again sometime.

I've also been reading the Narnia collection. I'm on Prince Caspian. Boy, the movie sure was different in many ways... I guess they had to jazz it up a bit. I really don't care much for Queen Susan. She gets on my nerves.

Stumbled across a writing community and joined it.. hopefully I'll have time to participate... since I don't do yahoo groups that much and I don't chat much, I should power that engery into writing. I hope I can find time.

It's up to me to take control!

Monday, July 14, 2008

The Husband

A really good read! I'm almost finished and am surprised it's so good. Dean Koontz can be a hit or a miss. I read The Darkest Evening of the Year a while back and though it's plot wasn't easy to disassemble, it was also very hard to get into the characters. I was sort of disappointed in it.

I truly think the Husband will make a great movie if they don't change it too much.


The nephews are really big on the show on Nick. So am I. It's way better than Hannah Montana. And so much funnier... even Mom likes to watch it.

The boys spend Friday night at my house... we had a watercolor lesson. It kills me how both of them expect to have the same results as I do when I paint...hell, I've been painting for 43 years...yes I could the formative years...they were my best.

Anyway, I got off track there... Saturday morning, they spent a large amount of time on the ICarly website. I was ironing a cotton top or a pair of shorts... can't remember ...but my back was towards the computer and I heard the ICarly crowd say...
" can pick your friends...and you can pick your nose...but..."

Before they could finished and with my back still to the computer, I piped in "You can't pick your friend's nose."

Immediately after I said it, they said it. William and Ben gasped..." did you know that?" William demanded.

I said, "The eyes in the back of my head saw it coming."

Ben said to William, "I told you she was pyschic."

"That's right.. I'm psychic..."

I walked out of the room into the hallway where my brother was standing, leaning on a crutch. He shook his head at me...

Upon seeing him I continued in a softer voice, "Or it could be that I've heard that joke before."

Hip-no-technical .........Freaky Me!

Nephew William is at work with me today. He decided he needed a change of routine, so he asked if he could come to work with me. I said he could but he would have to stay the whole day because I had things to do. But in all honesty, I will take him back to my house if he wants to go, because it's only a 5 min drive and I can put a note on the door.

He's become more interactive with all of us this summer. Yesterday he demonstrated his new hip-no-technical dance. He hummed as he danced a really cool little routine and I realized I knew the song, but wasn't sure from where I had heard it. So I asked where he learned that dance and he took me on a very wild ride to the internet... yahoo kids..where there's a game ... a Mr. Bean's Holiday game..if you saw the movie then you know there's a scene where he dances to music hoping to get money. And if you know anything about Mr. Bean--it's gonna be hilarious. So..I watched William make Mr. Bean dance and it was so funny I had to get up and dance just like Mr. B.

Hip-no-technical Freaky Me!

My sister doesn't like Mr. Bean. She says he's freaky. I say he's only getting his freak on.

Here's the link to the game... why not take a moment to get freaky with Mr. Bean.

Wednesday, July 09, 2008


I'm sorry but I'm in a blah mood this week. I think it stems from work... getting tired of the same ole same ole and yet not able to change it for the moment.

Plus another issue is pressing..and a few of you were emailed about it. I really don't want to write about it here because I'm afraid my blog will pop up in a search due to the issue and I sorta like those who live around me in the real world not find it.

I wish with all my heart that the world wasn't so cruel and heartless. I don't think I've ever really realized just how moral free so many people are. Life has no value and what little you have can be taken away in a flash.

So.. you can see where my mind is today and I'll leave for now and pray that a laugh will live within me when I return.

You Are As Cool As They Come

Rational and relaxed, no one could accuse you of being dramatic.

You roll with the punches, and nothing ever gets you too worked up.

You are able to maintain perspective and see the big picture.

And even if you're emotional inside, you don't let it show.

You're great at keeping it together, and you're rewarded for that.

People see you as an ideal friend, employee, and partner.

You Have Very Healthy Relationships

You are an amazing friend, partner, and family member.

You always take other people's feelings into account, and you're never selfish.

Your relationships are based on mutual respect.

You respect the people you love, and you only love people who respect you in return.

You Are Bold When it Counts

You don't make a big fuss about getting what you want... unless it's really important to you.

Then you're as bold as you want to be. You just go for it!

You're often up for a little excitement and adventure. Well, as long as the cost isn't too great.

You enjoy risk, but not for it's own sake. Let's just say you've learned a few lessons about risk in your life.

Back in the Saddle

My weekend was really relaxing. Al got off at 7 Friday and we grilled steaks. He didn't have to go in to work until 1 pm Saturday... so we had a nice breakfast/lunch and off he went. I worked on my little table...sanding the old paint off and filing down the bumps. In between breaks I watched Monster Quest on the History channel.. I do love that show. They had a marathon running..and I had seen a few of the shows, so during those I went back to sanding my table. One of the neighbors that lives across the street and two houses over always has 'suspicious' activity going while spying on them, I didn't pay attention to what side of the sanding paper I had down on the surface of the table and started to sand.... my index finger...not the table... have a rather nasty sore over the first knuckle. I washed it with soap, then pour peroxide over it...trying to get all the sand granules out of the pretty much kept me from doing much else...

like working on a tattoo design for a friend of mine... he's not getting the tattoo until the fall but I wanted to get it done before then, so I can move on to other stuff..

We had a lot of rain over the weekend and I had to wait for a storm to blow over before going to the store to get stuff for supper... I spent about an hour and half in Wal-mart. What's up with that place...I swear it sucks you right in and you've spent more than you planned too...

I cooked some excellent meals this weekend... and enjoyed Al's charming company. It was great and I had a hard time leaving him yesterday...

In another life, you could have been a great novelist. You have a knack for describing things in an interesting way.

You are comfortable in your own skin. You don't have hangups about your body.

Not very surprised at this one. :)

You try to learn, travel, and understand.

Being a part of the whole world is important to you, and you're always working to be more internationally focused.

Hits and Misses and...BBQ

Well, I am so happy this work week is almost over. I've decided to take a long weekend, because I could use it.

I've been busy with some restoration work that will appear on my website later. I'm almost finished and plan to leave work once I'm done. There are two projects that will be waiting for me first thing Monday...but I'll mentally prepare myself for them so I can pop them out like a bad pimple.

If you've noticed my avatar, you'll notice she's got shorter hair. Mine has been driving me crazy with it's long length and I had it wacked to my shoulders. Much..much cooler. I think I must have been out of my mind to think I could go until my birthday without cutting it..geez it would have been almost to my butt. Glad my sanity returned.

Ben and I were playing 'interview' yesterday. I asked him questions and he would answer them, such as 'What's your favorite vegetable?' His answer was "strawberries and apples." Course I naturally corrected him. Most of the answers were normal for a 6-year-old...

Then I asked him which he would rather do "kiss a girl or kiss a frog" fully expecting him to say "kiss a frog." But oh no...not Ben, he said "I've already kissed a girl. I kissed Abby ____"

I looked at him over my glasses and said, "You kissed Little Miss Abby." (She's been his girlfriend since they were like...3)... he started giggling. So I continued, "Go get me the phone. I'm calling her mother. Abby has to live in a tower now. She kissed a boy before she was 21."

Mom heard me and she laughed... "She's a little Princess and has to live in a tower for the brave Knight Ben to rescue."

I shook my head, "No, she has to live in a tower because Ben kissed her."

I watched Ben's reaction to what we were saying and I swear that little bird was so proud of himself...for kissing a girl.

William and I watched Lazytown this morning..I swear I could totally devour Sportacus in one breath.

A few people have invited me over for BBQ's and stuff tomorrow. Not sure which invitation I'll accept. Al has to work tomorrow and Saturday. He's off Sunday and I wouldn't be surprised if he isn't planning another golf day with his unreliable pal R.L.

Hmm... maybe I'l find some fireworks some place...

Enjoy your weekend, everyone.


Happy 4th of July!

be safe out there...xxooxxoo

I finally have my restortaions up.

What Your These Fireworks Say About You

You are focused, single minded, and intense.

You don't let others see your intensity often, and when they do, they are quite surprised.

You burn brightly, but you also burn steadily.

You have the endurance to get the one thing you desire most.

You Are Extremely Charming

When someone talks to you, they feel like they are the most interesting person in the world.

And for you in that moment, they actually are.

You truly care about the people you're around, and it's obvious to everyone who meets you.

You are open, warm, friendly, and welcoming. You epitomize charm.

Sometimes I make a lot of sense

Here's something I told a friend that rings true:

Life's too short to whimper about what could have been, especially when there's so much that could be.

Go Dog Go!

Al sent me to Pet Smart to get some cat food for the Cat. I was amazed at all the dogs in there with their humans, buying stuff or just hanging around. I saw no shoppers with cats or rabbits or birds or snakes...just dogs... big ones mostly.

I carefully walked by them, worrying if I should make contact with the huge dogs that were almost eye level to me. It amused me a little how one petless woman kept walking up to dogs, asking their humans if she could pet the dogs. Hmmmm...wonder if I can do that at places I see a handsome man with a woman... what would the woman do if I went up to her and asked, "Can I pet your man?"

As I walked through the parking lot after making my purchase, I spied a small 2-dr compact car. I noticed that it was sorta rocking a little, so I slowed down to take a peek. Outside the car was a lovely young lady urging a huge black great dane out of the car. It was half in and half out, wagging its tail in the face of a small baby, around 2 months old. The baby had a 'WTF?' expression on its little face. I bit back a laugh. I got in the truck and watched the lady finally get the dog out of the tiny car and tell it to 'stay.' It stood watching me as I laughed. Then the lady struggled to get the infant out of its car seat. What a funny sight as the trio made their way to the store...the dog pulling the lady and the lady trying to keep the jiggling baby on her hip. How brave she take a trip to the pet store with a horse-dog and a squalling baby...all in a compact!

If I ever own a dog, I guess I'll understand the allure of taking it to the pet store with me. Until that day comes...I'll have to settle for taking my pet rock along.
