I was making a funny. Open the link. The headline said "Elderly man..."

No sense of humor around here. The title of the article, "Elderly man shot and robbed at home".

And now that I think about it, the elderly are targetted for crime such as mugging and burglary.

Sorry, did not get the humorous implication.
Yes the elderly are targeted for crimes, so are the not so elderly, women, children, banks and gas stations.

Thats my point, crime happens everywhere, "Even" in your own home.

No fun involved with my back, sorry to say.

But being vigilant about icing it every 60-90 minutes yesterday, starting at 4:30 a.m., has paid off and while I'm store and moving slowly, it's MUCH better. I am thrilled with the progress. I'm at least 50% better, was last night. nick called me before bed, and I got up to answer the phone and realized I'd gotten up without having to use my h ands/arms to help get me up.

Is anyone else loving these Geico ads with Mtumbo? Nick told me he had a rep for being something of a dick on the court, which makes me like the commercials more.

That seems pretty normal. Once in the morning. Once when you get home. Once before bed.

We have a dog door, so I don't always keep track of when she goes in and out. Peeing that often I can see. The other... The clean-up seemed to take forever.

My mutt craps once a day, on occasion twice. Only time he did it more than that was when he ate a chicken carcass. Maybe case of the runs also.

Dickie hates going at work. He says the men on his floor are pigs, so he has to travel to the executive floor to poop.

He's actually made friends with the big, big boss that way. They're on the same poop schedule.

Nothing yet. We keep hearing conflicting reports. Anywhere from 4 - 12 inches in my area tomorrow. My husband already called out for tomorrow. He works outside at the port and has plenty of vacation days to use. He is itching to use his snowblower :)

My ex-husband used to say the same thing.

Jasper was the opposite; where we lived when we first lived together, he was close enough to drive home from work to poop.

Speaking of poop, I feel like crap.

that's wierd. I don't want anyone in there with me. We have one small stall and one nice big handicapped one. If the handicapped one is in use, i try the other floor or come back later. Its rare that someone sits down in next stall while i am going. But i have heard the door open and close with no one entering. They obviously want the big stall too
