The only one I've seen (dad tickles kid, kid asks gun question) seems to do the exact opposite of what they intended. I would think, that if the kid has to ask, Dad's doing a pretty good job of keeping the gun/s away from the kid.

This is one of those events in life that makes you want to kick a can over.

Took my husky over to the oncologist for her check up and to do lab work to get her ready for another round of chemo ( low dose oral pill) to keep the bad stuff away.

Well I was walking around the parking lot kicking stones just killing time. You know it is bad when one of the techs come out almost instantly and tell you that the Doc wants to talk.

OUt of chemo for two weeks and the stupid crap is back in her lymph node.

We are going to try this new stuff that is an oral dose and not as hard on the body. Doc says it has about 75% clearance rate. (Lack of a better term)

What really sucks is that for the last few weeks she has been normal and acting like she did a couple of years ago.

The Vet told me finding that mass blew her away because everything else is great and her playing, demeanor, appetite is the exact opposite what you would expect.

Just one of those things that sucks.

I haven't seen any of those. Are you on a coast or a hard blue state? Here on the great plains, if that question was asked, it would be followed by, "Cool, can you teach me how to shoot?"

Are they on cable or local channels?

I just looked up the commercial. Gayer than Liberace's goldfish.
And they claim that 8 kids a day are shot by a firearm left out in America. 8? That's 2,920 kids a year. I don't buy that.

One of the many advantages of not having cable.

Today I am filled with hate for:

1. Airport cab stands,

and

2. Hotel local numbers that call forward to the national call center.
