I don't know why I find this funny


I don't know why but there is just something really funny about this..."pack of angry Chihuahuas attack Officer"I would expect perhaps a Mailman but not a Cop.
Maybe the body armor should cover the ankles.....
" Little did Elliott Ness and his Untouchables know but the dreaded Chihuahua Gang was coming up the back steps"

Twas the night before Christmas...A Horse Vets Christmas Story



Twas the night before Christmas , and the coldest one yet

One last farm call to make , for a tired old Horse Vet

The horses were snuggled, and tucked in their stalls

Where the only thing moving, were the mice in the walls

Their feed buckets were hung, by the stall doors with care

In the hopes that The Horse Doctor, soon would be there

Out in the paddock, there arose quite a fussin’

The hot wire was on, and someone was cussin’

I ran to the window, and stuck my nose through the curtain

“I think that’s the Doc", looks like he’s limping for certain”

From out in the barn, came the faint scent of Brandy

And he was passing out meds, as if it were candy

Some Bute for your lameness, Dexamethasone for you

Antibiotics for that one, and some Banamine too

As he walked back to his truck, he screamed as if shot

“I reckon he forgot, that the wire was still hot”

I could still hear him fussin’, as he drove down the hill

“Merry Christmas to all, I’ll just send you the bill”

Winter WonderLand


The summer of surf continues as the winter of surf. The down side is " IT"S COLD". The water temp is now down to 65 degrees and falling towards the 50's (and I live in Florida). Air temp in the 40's this morning but we still went out, and it reminded me that I have been off the weights for over a month. Paddling out in a wetsuit keeps you warm ("er") but the last 20-30 yards through the waves was some work. I have the weekend off emergency duty so it was still good to get out. December is tough but Feb is the worst. Heres hoping the swells keep coming , you can follow whats going on at "the surf-station" web site. Tory does a great job of doing daily reports, even on the cold days.

Awesome Christmas Display


I've seen alot of "Grizwalds" over the years but this is without a doubt the absolute best. Whoever this is has way to much time and is clearly a techie. To keep the neighbors from going nuts the music is played on a low power radio transmitter and you tune to the frequency in your car. Turn the sound up on your computer and listen to the "Trans Siberian Orchestra".....this is cool.
Theres nothing quite like bright flashing lights that makes one harken back to a simpler time and place.....NOT.
