Winter sunshine but c-o-l-d! here.
brought Ali to dog run..
hands numb on return, could hardly drive...

El and other animal lovers here,
would like 'your' take on this>

every morning when Ali gets up, I put her out,
and before she goes out, she *insists* in
finding ANYTHING to hold in her mouth, when she sees me, be it an old sock-a ball- a morsel -
a piece of cardboard- broken toy
an old bit of chewed bone > ANYTHING..

I just wonder if it some kind of instinct
and if so, what might be behind it!-

kinda like when a cat brings in a mouse,
isn't it meant to be a trophy and they want to
present it to the master!

El,
Thanks re the poem,
glad you enjoyed it..

I saw you mention movies recently,
I went to see SKYFALL,
very good indeed,

007 hasn't lost his sheen.

Wishing all the regulars here a
pleasant restful wkend.
or their little way of trying to make the owner
feel appreciated!
Good day Grace...or in the case here evening. I have found that my dogs have their own quirks and personalities. I forget if Ali is a lab. If so they do tend to retrieve---anything. My beagle and mix have other patterns and quirks. Sometimes it's the breed and other times it's just the animal.

The bar in which I watched the game (we don't have Sky) was the same - in uproar over some of the decisions. I know as rugby supporters we are supposed to accept the ref's calls, but some of them were virtually criminal negligence!

I hate to say it Tony, but my point about bad refereeing is
very prominent today, both in the game you speak of and also
a football match where Manchester City were awarded two penalties which basically should not have been given.
Are these referees laws unto themselves?
Juest teasin' about the huddling btw....thoroughly enjoyed last
week's game.
The England Australia game was a hard fought match. Can't blame the Aussies - anyone who has played the game knows you play the ref, and that's what they did. If he doesn't call the infringements of the laws, you carry on infringing!

Was that referee noted for his bias Krypteia,
Tony? Might sound a silly question but isn't there the means to check by way of camera as to
the validity of the ref's decisions, would be
interested to know.
Be thankful that you went to Twickers last week
Krypteia, rather than this.
Just heard that Man U lost. What a day! At least
Ireland won, one good thing.
Well, I'll be off, an early night tonight, catch up with some reading in bed.
So Good Night everybody, if I don't see you tomorrow, have a nice weekend. Have one anyway!
In both soccer and rugby, one of the first laws of both games is that the referee is the sole judge of fact and law (I used to be a ref for both games). Has to be that way, or you'd end up with anarchy on the pitch. Rugby does now have the "fourth official", a video feed to which the ref can turn if he is unsure. Only used in point scoring situation to determine if a ball has been grounded for a try, or as in the fiasco yesterday, whether the ball has passed through the posts for a conversion. It wouldn't be feasible to review every decision made, the game would go on for hours!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. I will be watching my sons team practice that morning cause we have our next play off game Friday night. Too far for me to travel which breaks my heart. Its his senior year, it may be his last game :(
My other two kids are going off with Grandma Thanksgiving day so it will just be me and my oldest. Not cooking a big meal for us. We may just end up a Waffle House lol. It will be the only thing open here.

Tks RM,

Yes, Ali is a lab crossed with a collie,
tall, jet black, just the giveaway 'collie' patch
of white in the chest area and on the tips
of the front paws, VERY bright and alert..

The beagle is so cute,
must bring you hours of joy..

As you very rightly say,
they all have their own quirks,
like humans too, I suppose..

A close friend of mine has a dog much like Ali,
but cannot let her in the playground with others
as she is SO possessive about the ball, she starts
a vicious fight if ANY other dog catches it!
whereas Ali will peacefully share with all dogs -

then, opposite to that, my friend's dog is fine with
humans & will go peacefully to any person to be patted..

whereas Ali can be very unpredictable with 'people'
*especially* men and can become quite
snarly with someone at a moments notice,
NO way of telling in advance,
tho' she loves kids and cats!! wags her tail at them!!

just an example of HOW different they all can
be, like you said.

Good morning El and Grace and all in the kitchen. I had a wonderful time yesterday. I went to a gun show and walked away with $1,000 and a new rifle I git a great price on. I sold some old guns I don't shoot any more. I sold a Swedish Mauser made in 1905. I bought it new packed in grease 20 years ago for $100. You used to be able to buy these military weapons for next to nothing as government sold off their old WW1 arsenals. 15 years ago I could buy a new AK-57 for $80 now they go for $600 :) I am going back today with a canteen made in 1917. I bought it for $1 in a garage sale and will sell it for $60 :)
