Dog Days of Summer

Poco is in trouble with a branch of the United States Government. It has been alleged that she bit the mailman. Mind you, these accusations are contradicted by eye witness accounts at the scene. Where is the justice here? What happened to "innocent until proven guilty"? What about due process? Does she not get the opportunity to confront her accuser? Poco is feeling very disenfranchised because of the oppression brought on by this decision. Does this look like the face of a criminal? I think not. What I do think is that our mail man is lazy and doesn't want to walk to our door anymore and what better excuse than to blame a perfectly innocent and defenseless animal of a crime she did not commit. Poco will now throw herself at the mercy of the court of public opinion.

The Weather

  • My 1991 Toyota pickup just went past 200k miles. That's good.
  • I'm driving it because my car won't pass emissions. It need as catalytic converter $400. That's bad.
  • The Check Engine light which had been illuminated for some months actually went out the first of June (the tags expired in April) so I headed for the testing place to see if it would pass. That's good.
  • Two blocks before I got there, the light came back on. That's bad.
  • My truck runs fine. That's good.
  • The air conditioning went out on it June 2. That's bad.
  • I'm saving my money to get my car where it will pass emissions. I should have it fixed by winter time. That's good.
  • The heater doesn't work my car and it was going to be $400 to fix. That's bad.
  • The heater in the truck works great. That's good.
  • Right now its July and its hot. I don't give a damn about how good the heater works.
