Got some painting done yesterday. Looks soooooooo nice - it's gonna look GREAT when it's all done. That cheered me up a bit, as well as finishing up the last of the "broken washer build up laundry" which was mostly bedding. So onto my overdue recap of Monday....
Do you know about anal glands on a dog? If you don't, you are lucky. If you really want to know all about them you can google it, however, let's just say that when a dog is frightened sometimes this noxious smelling liquid brown substance is released from the posterior region. Let me emphasize NOXIOUS smelling. It's not even like a poo or fart smell, it's worse. Anyway, Mr. Big Black Dog let loose on the way to the vet. THANK GOODNESS I had a small rug under him which caught it, but when I got home I threw that rug right in my washer and Lysolled the heck out of the back of my truck. The next time I got it, the sun had been beating down on the truck so I got to enjoy a superheated version of what smell was left. I drove around with all the windows down for awhile, and I am happy to say it seems to have dissipated. I apologize for even sharing that story with you, it's so gross isn't it?
Well the geocaching event was a lot of fun, but alas, no geocoins were released into the wild by DH. Got to put some faces to names of local cachers. DD and I shared a clam strip dinner. (You know, that used to be a staple, but you can't always find the clam strip dinner everywhere anymore. It was good.)
And, for those who don't recognize him, to the right is a picture of my little alter ego, none other than Sheldon J. Plankton, aka PLANKTON from SpongeBob Squarepants. Plankton is Mr. Krabs' business arch rival and the show's resident villain. Plankton runs the restaurant across the street from the popular "Krusty Krab" where SpongeBob works; Plankton's place is called the "Chum Bucket". Plankton's goals in life are to get the secret recipe for the Krabby Patty and to rule the world. He never succeeds long at either though. I don't know why I love Plankton so much. I don't normally like villains. I even have a McD's (or from somewhere) Plankton toy in my truck. You press a button on the back and his eye bulges. It's great!
Some (hopefully) quick errands to run this morning, then more painting!
