summertime, an' the livin' is easy ...

gershwin lied.

summertime livin' is damn hard. i was checking my calendar this week and i am busy every weekend until september! birthdays, bbqs, picnics, gigs and trips are eating up my free time. where is the me time? and more importantly, when do i do laundry?

plus, there is the always the lawn.

i think 'goober' is sabotaging my lawn mower. i was mowing the lawn yesterday, and every time i came back outside, after taking a break, he suspiciously ran away from the general direction of the lawn mower.

i woke up this morning, and not only had 'goober' snuck up onto the bed last nite, he had maneuvered himself so that he had his head on the pillow next to me, he was stretched out and his paw was on the remote control. if he was snoring, he could have been a bad date. :)

It's Snickers here...I've broken into Miss A's computer...hehehe...
Don't fool around near the lawn mower, it's VERY dangerous! I'm all for sabotaging things, just ask Smudge the cat! I sabotage him quite regularly. Hehehe. But if you bust the lawn mower, your human may have to buy a goat to work on the lawn. You don't want to live with a goat, now do you??? Goats can't even fetch for crying out loud...

Woof, woof, woof.

That Bjork song has intruded its way into my brain from the first listen and won't leave. Beck, The Donnas and the rest! Excellent.

Goober is obviously making sure that his position as alpha male is secure.

Good Times Roll - great retro way to start the weekend!

I agree with you, summer means having a hard time doing all those things, but I'd say that it's quite nice.

The parts about Goober made me laugh a lot, maybe that he hates the lawn mower?

goober to snickers.. "i will kick any goat's butt"

barbara - now i'm worried that goober has been peeing on the lawn mower. perhaps a hose down is necessary.

i never even realized what a great weekend starter that was! i must have been sick.

evelyne - yes it's hard but fun. :)

he sure barks at it a lot!
