The newest addition to the Cranky family I named Sarah.  Go figure out why on your time.

I saw her Wednesday morning in a neighbor’s front yard, lying in the grass and observing the passing traffic.  Because I needed to get to work and on the road to Troy, I did not stop.  The guilt ate at me.

When I got home from work on Thursday afternoon I saw her again, running in the street.  I put my other dogs, Annie and Jessie, into the back yard and then walked down the street to where I had last seen her.

It took some time to coax her to me but eventually I was able to scoop her up in my arms and walk home.  She had no tag or collar.  On Friday morning I took her to the veterinarian and she received a clean bill of health.

Introducing Sarah.

My girls.

My girls.

My veterinarian thinks she is about six months old and probably a Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever mix.  She is sweet as the dickens and a brat in the sense that she pesters her older ‘sisters’.

Deadbeat Joe Biden

Via my former economics professor:

From an accountant who has done work for Biden.

Family, I feel an obligation to honesty and truth to share with you some facts. My Father and Mother instilled in me the values and morals of treating people fairly and always being honest. If you purchase something, you pay for it. If you borrow something, you give it back.

I have been “stiffed” three times in my 30 year professional career by someone who I rendered services to, gave a finished product to, but who refused to pay for those services even though they acknowledged the services and products were correct, were what they asked for, and were never challenged for not being correct. I am lucky in having only three, but those three hurt badly.

Joe Biden was one of those people. I worked on his 1988 Presidential campaign financial disclosure engagement. I busted it for him and got everything right. He stiffed me for over $15,000 worth of work. He refused to pay once he dropped out of the race. I did similar Capitol Hill campaign financial disclosure work for Bob Dole, Pat Buchanan, and a Democratic candidate for Ambassador to New Zealand. All of those folks paid even though they lost the election or did not get the appointment. That type of work is very demanding and very tedious because your efforts are scrutinized by Congress. Biden did not care.

I am on the Board of Directors of a company that owns a majority position in a private jet management company in Northern Virginia. They manage jets for businesses and rich folks. They also charter planes to the public. This past winter John Thompson chartered over $250,000 worth of air time. He paid every penny.

Joe Biden, in his latest unsuccessful run for President, chartered over $150,000 worth of air time. He PAID ZERO.

He continues to refuse to pay stating his race is over and he is out of money. He never once complained about his flights. Joe Biden is a rich man. He could pay.

Joe Biden is a liar and a cheat. I know it first hand.

Character is what life is all about. Joe Biden is a man of bad character and sets a bad example for America.

I feel compelled to share this dark side of a man who asks for your vote and trust.

Best Regards,

John McCain and Barack Obama somehow ended up at the same barbershop.

As they sat there, each being worked on by a different barber, not a word was spoken. The barbers were afraid to start a conversation, for fear it would turn to politics.  As the barbers finished their shaves, the one who had Obama in his chair reached for the aftershave.  Obama was quick to stop him saying, “No thanks, Michelle will smell that and think I’ve been in a whorehouse.”

The second barber turned to McCain and said, “How about you?”

McCain replied, “Go ahead, Cindy doesn’t know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like!”

Deep Purple — Smoke on the Water

I just love this song and this particular presentation.  It rocks, in a classical way.

I know.  I know.  I’ve probably posted this video at least four or five time.  Not sorry.

I Kissed A Girl — Turn it Off!!!1!!

For the past few weeks we’ve been working in a town south of Montgomery.  One of the radio stations from Dothan plays the Katy Perry song I Kissed A Girl over and over.  STG I heard the thing five times in an hour.  SHUT UP!

A while back The Hostages had a parody video of this song that just kills.
