@achewood There’s no Day for apologizing to our parents for all the stupid shit we put them through. Perhaps because we never finish before they die.

Also, The Minutemen's version of Bermuda makes me want to run through walls angry and crotch first.

Oh I am all about the balcony these days.

Oh hells yeah, that's exactly how I did The Fonda show in Hollywood back in April, by myself and straight to the balcony.

Inev, it's possible to work around the schedule issue and you've already started taking a good step by not making it a 'thing'. There's some pressure/guilt to the sleepytime schedule issue that can cause problems. Spouse is a nightowl and I spent too long trying to keep up with her. We finally got comfortable with the idea that she can have some quiet personal time to enjoy and my sleepy ass can go to bed and neither of us have to feel bad about it. It's an accomodation with each other you have to work towards over time.

Also, I really like Bob Mould's album Beauty and Ruin so here's a nice song from it that's in my 'rock out on the way to work' playlist.

Also, I've been listening the shit out of The Interrupters lately.

Nice acoustic version of one of my favourite songs of theirs.

I finally said fuck it and took the Keith Morris route:

If I gotta go, I buy my ticket, get a good viewpoint and rock out by myself.

It's cute and all but I can't help but worry about a duck in the house because the3y shit like every 3 steps or 7 breaths and a roomba smearing duck shit around the house is nightmare fuel.

But I'm weird.

Vacuum bagging up the home made turkey broth.

Just another way to make delicious ass stuff out of a turkey carcass. Spouse used the InstaPot with some vegetable peels and various seasonings. Pressure cook that stuff and then separate out the bones and discard, the meat goes into a tub for enchiladas, the skin and vegetable peels and cartilage goes in a tub and gets added to the dog kibble (they go nutz for it), and the strained off stock gets frozen and packed in two cup servings. 24 cups of broth a carcass, so far.

I made quinoa with onion, celery and mushrooms using the stock for liquid the other night, it hella makes a difference in tastiness.

I just realized we've raised enough pigs to make recalling the correct name for the hog the bacon I just gave a guy is difficult.


Time flies when you're raising bacon, I guess.

Also, I about shit my ##### and died last weekend. We were working out back so we let the hosss and goats out to roam and stretch out. Coco the thoroughbred was dashing across the yard and Gidget the pregnant goat ran under her and got kick-rolled.

The poor goat got up and stood there stunned for a minute and then went back in her pen where things were safer. Goats are pretty fuck*ng smart, sometimes. No permanent harm done, fortunately.

BTW, Mickey is back to being his little love-sponge self and is tired of the cone of shame and itchy where his hair is growing back in. Watching him eat out of his dog bowl with the cone is frikkkkkin' hilarious. He has to angle the cone down and over the bowl, so from the outside it looks like a cone sitting on the floor with the back half of a dog sticking out.

With chomping sound coming from the inside of the cone. Classic.

Nah, it was only one company, but it was in line with the other ones I've looked into in the past.
I think I'm spoiled by having an unusually healthy run of dogs, is what it s.

Now hosss? Those fuckers should come with insurance. Fortunately I found a good vet who's reasonable if I truck them to him. I pay $40 for the trailer instead of the vet's $250 home visit fee now.

Ohhhh, also I found a vet that will let me bring him a sandwich bag of poop and then for $45 he'll look at it under a microscope and tell me the animals parasite load and what, if any, type of dewormer to use effectively.

P.S. Gidget is 48 days pregnant with about 100 to go. Over on the FB I belong to an Achewood sub-group of animal raising people and a poor gal there just had pregnancy related complications and lost both of her does and the kids. This gives me nightmares.

I checked into the pet insurance angle two years ago when my MegaLoCorp started offering it as an added package, but was disappointed that the annual cost plus the deductible/covered percentage made it an expensive proposition. Like, this last bundle of cost came out about equal with paying for coverage the last couple of years.

Am I missing better market options?

Don't get me wrong, I totally went all math on it and decided that amortizing the surgery cost over about 10 more years of the dog made it a value proposition...the little shit.
