I think I am getting old. For the first time in my life I have found myself complaining about prices of things. I have never really done that before.

This morning a made a reservation to have my two dogs boarded for three nights while we are out of town. $400!! I start doing the math and realize I can get them a room at the Embassy Suites for the same price and that includes breakfast and a free evening happy hour.

Secondly, I am craving pudding now. Getting old stinks.

You need to find a trustworthy kid in your neighborhood. Probably be 90% cheaper.

Get older or die. Pretty much the only choices.
You believe in an invisible god, and dismiss people who say they are trans? Really?

You don't have to make a choice. Most people get to do both.

Ah, but with age comes wisdom.

Or is it rheumatism?

Yeah, but the dogs can't enjoy the breakfast and the free evening happy hour. 😉

Speaking of getting old and pets ...

Gee, if someone happens to live alone and have a lot of cats...if they die at home they can rest assured that the kitties will not starve for a week or two.

If attractive cougars do not still exist, you are old and running out of options.

that has happened to people who have had exotic large lizard type pets ... to *someone* anyway that I saw a program on. He got bit deep into his flesh and tried over the counter medications to treat it ... died ... and I won't go on

My wifes uncle lived in rural Idaho in a cabin that was only accessible in the summer. He passed away in the cabin in the winter. In the summer they found him and his dog dead and estimated the time of death aboutthree months earlier for her uncle. They believe the dog lived much longer off of the uncles body.
