    OMG, I literally JUST got back from the vet where both Bugs and Harry got their nails professionally clipped. It took 4 vet techs to do Harry.

    We fell for the scam that is that nail trimmer that isn’t so much a trimmer as a sander for your dogs nails. Buster the Beagle would have NOTHING to do with it. He was quite sure it was a torture device sent by aliens to remove his feet from his body. Trimming his nails entailed someone, his father, holding his head so the giant snapping jaws of death could not get to me, and then I clipped. Needless to say we didn’t do that very often. The Schnauzers never give me a hassle about clipping their nails. They don’t like it, but they tolerate it.

    Regarding vines and building furniture, I am convinced that if you use vines as caulk, and apply heat via a hair dryer to melt them, you could probably glue your IKEA furniture together and it would withstand a nuclear blast.

    Oh yes! I have to admit I will get professional assistance when it’s time. I just don’t have the will for it. (I would also eat the Red Vines even AS I was using them as crutches.)

  6. I think my coffee just went out my nose!

  7. HA!
