The things one can find at Ikea

We were shopping at Ikea in Frisco yesterday and this is one of the items we saw...

To me, it looks like someone figured out what to do with all their recyclable pink vibrators or they were trying to capture another use for udders!

Mauled squirrel

So, I wake this morning around 7:15 a.m. and hear this "chirping" sound downstairs in the backyard. I figured it was a bird freaking out at seeing our dog out back.

I came downstairs and was getting my shoes and socks on in the sun room when I see my dog out back by the tree. I look to see what she's doing and it turns out that the chirping was not a bird but instead a squirrel wailing for survival.

My dog is picking up the squirrel, shaking it back and forth a few times and then letting it go. It's quite an amusing sight but nonetheless, I had to get her to drop it and leave it alone so I could get her in the house and do something with this ailing squirrel.

She wasn't trying to eat it. She was purely playing with it. Now, how she got it in the first place is unknown but I patted her head for her first varmint "kill."

Of course, what kind of proud owner would I be if I didn't take pictures of her accomplishment.

Email humor 10/04/2007

Email "chain letter"

This was worth posting but it certainly didn't fall under "Email humor for the day"...

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here.

Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.

We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
          —Theodore Roosevelt 1907
