This pretty much sums up why I'm more of a dog person than cat.....

There's a reason the saying is, "be the person your dog already thinks you are." Cats are indifferent. The statement would just be confusing if cats were in it instead of dogs.

Happy Friday!

Still a dog person, despite 4 cats. I'd rather be greeted with enthusiastic slobbers than four cold stares that say, "Who are you and what are you doing in MY house?"

Purring, rubbing against you, even an occasional "love bite" are indicators your cat wants food. You're just the waiter.

dogs can be at least equally nagging (and less subtle) about food, going out, coming in, etc.

This week he landscape crew while weedwhacking along our fence line, managed to chuck a handful of gravel into the rear window of the minivan, shattering it. So now I needed a window - and probably a new mowing service. Last time I found a "used" window on eBay for $75, but now they're up to $125 - plus shipping. That's about half of what a new one costs, so JK started calling around to local junkyards to see if they might have one. Yep, first call to one of our local junkers found one, $50. Meanwhile, I was on another line, trying to line up an installer.

It seems that our local tint shop that has replaced windows for us in the past was the low bidder at just over $150 for a matching tint and the install. Just over $220 (with tax) for everything, all I had to do was the pick-up and delivery. Glad I went to a pro, that big chunk of glass is glued in place, and it doesn't want to come out easily. The whole tailgate had to be stripped of interior trim and insulation to get the new glass into place, but they had it done in an hour. I was still scrubbing the mastic off my hands when they announced it was ready. Dodged a bullet there, my quote from the same shop for glass, tint, and installation was double what we ended up paying.

Here, it starts getting a little weird. Talking with the shop manager he found out I had been in the video business. After a little questioning, I found he needed a video of his auto glass operation - they're part of a larger window and mirror company with stores all over Houston and wanted a video for their website. Since I'm officially out of that business, I directed them to a longtime friend who owns a much larger video company than mine, and after a couple of phone calls, the deal looks serious. My "commission" should more than cover the shop bill and still buy JK and I a nice "date night" out.

As if our good fortune ended there, after almost five years of yeoman service, our small microwave quit. It's a cheap one, but it gets a lot more use than it's big brother, since it's easier to use and more convenient. JK started shopping online while I began troubleshooting the problem. It turned out we'd had a power hit that got only that one appliance; unplug and reconnect to power (basically a reboot), set the clock and we're good to go.

I call that a win. But credit where credit's due, I'm going to church this weekend.
