The Good & The Bad

The Bad:

*Last week I went to a Verizon store to pay my bill and because I was paying with cash they charged me $1. WTF is up with that?? The only reason I stopped in was to save a stamp and it ended up costing me 50 cents more. Remember when paying with cash was the preferred way?

*On Thursday when I was driving home I was stuck in traffic. I noticed in my rear view mirror two motorcycles driving up between the cars. I moved my car over more to the middle so they couldn't and one of them purposely hit my car with their motorcycle. I think I was in shock because before I knew it they were way ahead of me. Once I got home there was a small scratch on my bumper. I really don't get some people.

The Good:

I bought a laser pointer a few weeks ago and Ben and Sophie are having a blast with it. Here are some pictures:

I thought this was the cutest picture of Sophie. I have never known a dog that communicates so much with her eyes:
This dog just melts my heart.

We have had an amazing turn in weather this week. Since Thursday it has been mild and there is very little humidity in the air. The past few evenings I have been able to have the window open and it feels great. Both Sophie and I are in a much better mood since it has cooled down.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my Anniversary post. I noticed a theme in the events that I chose and I plan on talking about that in the next few days.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

People are asses sometimes. Sad, but true.

We've had cooler weather too - Yippee!!!

Soph is so precious!

I love torturing our cats with the laser pointer. Reilly could care less. I think he laughs at the cats too in his little doggy way!

ugh I hate when motorcyclists do that- unfortunately in california it is even completely legal to do so "under safe conditions" It bugs the crap out of me!!!

There are so many aggressive people on the road that I don't push my luck. I figure they will kill themselves one day without my help.

The Verizon store here can't take payments!! They can take your payment for a a purchase, but nothing toward the account. Makes no sense to me whatsoever!!

Caroline, my son James is a Jr volunteer fire fighter and we have a scanner last night it had rained and our local police was doing a click it or ticket and a guy on a motorcycle went through the checkpoint doing ninety plus James got ready to go incase they had to go scrape him off the road (although they would have not let James on scene cause he is a minor) but how stupid is that. Some people geesh

That Verizon thing blows me away - I know it's only a buck but I guess I would probably file a complaint about that, that is just ridiculous to charge extra for cash!
