April 1 st.

Today we got a call from a relative, saying they were going to tax pets. It did catch me off guard. I told the wife, that that is totally impossible.

Taxing pets. I thought, bad enough you have to get a tag every year, and pay 20 or so bucks just to say you have a pet that stays in the house all day. Now tax them. But, the wife laughed, as she was caught in the trap too. It was just an April Fools joke.

An April fools joke, is always best when it comes from someone who never dishes out a lie. Or, maybe it is better coming from someone who is always spewing out speculation that never proves true. In the latter scenario, you tend to believe it more, while not believing it at all. Because they always dish out stuff, like: The price of gas will be 3 dollars a liter tomorrow. You say, alright, where did they hear that from? You know it is impossible, but it is not April fools. It is just a regular day in your life, with someone you know that always spews out 50 % truth and 50 % speculation. You got to love these people, though. It always tests your ability to sort reality from fiction. How fast can you do it.

I am glad April fools is only one day a year. But, for some relatives, it is every week or every day. It must be a roller coaster ride, all the time.

Have a good day,  till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
