Morning all:

Quote Of The Week:

“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.” Herm Albright

”Oh What a Beautiful Mornin’” and the coffee is still brewing. The wait time is always fertile territory for dreaming the ‘big’ thoughts. One that just swept through my mind is that I’d organize an Una Paloma Blanca singing contest during our vacation in Canada. Possibly a little later I’ll wander over to the park and practice a Slim Whitmanesque style yodel – a cappella of course.

This week was amazing as far as property rental goes. One tenant moved out and the next day Marcia rented the unit. Not only rented, but to the aunt/sister of two persons of note. Buried in these paragraphs are the clues which will guide you to whom our new tenant is related (drop me a note should you feel that “You’ll Never Know” and desperately need answers). Oh, “Good Night, and Good Luck” Dirk you say, this nonsense will put me in the “E/R”.

Talking about tenants, we’ll shortly be losing Adrianne and Tevita, but I’ll let her give the details on her blog. Let me give you one hint, “Come On-a My House”.

Marcia is already in full packing mode getting ready for our week in Canada. What this will mean is that we have to get a sitter arrangement for the cats. I think that A & T will actually spend the week here to provide for critter company. One major concern has been our old female cat. Always very tiny she is now a rib-cage covered with fur. I fully believe that she is on a steep decline and have already placed a shoe box in reserve.

Marcia, on the other hand, has not given up hope, and in the process has discovered the secret to immortality—Tuna fish. Three times a day the little beast gets a teaspoon of Tuna from the can. I don’t know if it’s the water the stuff is packed in, the tin residue from the can itself, or the bits of bone, but the difference is remarkable. Already our tiny feline is living 40% longer than she should have, last weekend killed two squirrels, and recently has tried to start up an affair with George Clooney.

We are bringing a case of three pound cans of Tuna to Canada. For human consumption only! Breakfast, noon, and night.

Make it a great week everyone. Wherever you go this week do so safely. As Henny Youngman’s Doctor advised when Henny told the guy that he’d broke his leg in two places, “quit going to those places.”

Cheers,
Dirk
