  • Ain't that strange? OT personal experience

    I passed a lady in town today. I used to live with her in the 80's.
    She was a buxsom pretty thing ten years younger than me. I was a foreman on a job working 12's doing construction. I came in from work got me a glass of iced tea, she was sunbathing in the back yard. I was admiring her in the window. She came in, got herself a glass of tea. She asked me, "what kind of tricks are you pulling on me?"

    AS she was talking to me, a Crow flew down and got something off her towel in the yard. She then related that some of her silver rings I had bought her were missing and she didn't think it was funny. I tried to tell her I saw a crow get them, that made things worse. WHen me and her finally split up she was still mad thinking I had stolen her rings.

    Today, I was looking for my air chuck to fill a portable tank, looking everywhere and cussing.. I looked down and my pup had laid the quick connect and chuck right at my feet. He must have snatched it sometime.

    DOES THIS JUST HAPPEN TO ME? Is my Karma all screwed up. Does strange things just happen to strange people?

    My dog got rewarded with a bowl full of beer, I got a beer drinking pup. Ain't that strange too? Sometimes I worry.

    Now I am going to have me a few too. Do some cad work on a new invention.

    Dr. Dolittle,
    Too bad you didn't have the pup back when the klepto crow was hanging around - it might have balanced out.

    Legend has it that crows are the bird of wisdom. He might have been doing you a favor. Now your pup is there doing you favors. After all, who knows for sure some other critter didn't snatch it first. Maybe it is all balancing out. Sounds like good karma to me.

            one of my good friends had his dog sparky drag away his best ever prized buck antlers one year. he looked everywhere and never found them. The next spring he accidentally ran the dog over with a big tractor. I ride him about that poor dog all the time. and, if I have a good audience, I tell everyone that sparky was still chained up.

              Around here I'm always having to hunt down the rat nests. 16p nails, bolts, auto bulbs, small car parts; I even pulled a wire brush out of one. I end up having to set out poision then seek out the stink. It's the only way to find the nest.

                Not this time. He did say Buxom, did he not?

                  Indeed he did say that.
                  I lived with a buxom beauty for a spell - in my case she was the biggest pain-in-the-ass ever. Of course I'm probably not done yet.
                  Hopefully David fared better.

                      It happens to me. A couple of months ago I bought a new 18 volt drill, two battery packs and charger with carrying case for $35 US. A real steal! I can't find the charger. I can find any one of the other 57 chargers I have but not that one. It doesn't make any sense. It hasn't left the building and I wouldn't put it far from an electrical outlet. It seems to have slipped sideways into the sock dimension.

                        Yesterday, my dog ran to the shop, jumped on the door and barked one time.

                        I came outside and he was back at the gate bouncing straight up about 4 feet and snarling and barking.. It was the UPS man. It kinda reminded me of a tasmanian devil.

                        I love him being smart, I hate him being so damn aggressive. Especially to people I need.

                        I think he understands about ten words now. He is 7 1/2 months old and I am really attached to him. He really is stubborn too, I got rid of the shock collar since it would hardly work anymore, he'd stop and scratch it where it was shocking his neck.

                          My friend from High SChool, he had a pet German Shepard. This dog would bark at ANYONE that came to the house except for me. Never ever barked at me.
                          I go to Florida to visit my Uncle, his neighbor has a black lab, this dog is very nice to everyone but me. The second the dog see's me, she starts growling and barking and runs away. The dog must sense that I want to blow its head off with a shotgun, and runs away. Ofcourse growling back at her never seamed to help things.
