Just Some Random Numbers

  • 100-  'Dog years' that my Boston Terrier, Parker, has reached today.
Am I really 100 years old today?!  Now what?

  • 14-  Months since my husband & I decided that Texas is the place for us.  (We haven't made it there yet, but it's not for lack of trying.)
  • 78-  minutes of summer that Seattle has actually had this year, or at least weather over 80 degrees.  Yes, this is absolutely true.  You can read about it here.  My sincerest apologies to those who are melting in the heat in most of the rest of the country...
  • 2-  number of runs the Seattle Mariners managed to accomplish in all 36 of their innings against the Texas Rangers.  Also the number of runs that Texas pitching has allowed in their last 47 innings.  Apparently I'm not the only one who has realized how bad it's gotten for the Mariners.  Yesterday, during a post-game show, a seagull flew over and pooped on the interview table!  I haven't been able to locate a video of this yet, but I KNOW one exits as I saw this myself on live TV.
  • 200-  number of dollars that was paid to have the last of the junk hauled away at my friends father-in-laws house before we cleaned it out.
  • 4-  pictures that were taken of the empty and CLEAN apartment, showing wide angle shots with ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LEFT in them.
  • 1-  annoying and lying new landlady who called declaring that the deposit on the apartment would not be refunded because her husband had to haul away a 'whole bunch of stuff' that was left there?!  I had a weird feeling about this woman from the moment I met her...
Now I'm off to take great pleasure in what is left of this day.  The sun has decided to peek out for a bit, my neighbor is ready for a walk, and I can't wait to see the landlady's face when she sees my photos- metadata complete with GPS and time stamp info.  I love it when I follow a good gut instinct....


    1. Thank you for your positive comment on my blog. I know that the bizarre doesn't sit well with everyone, but that is what has been going on with me. Well PART of what has been going on. Love the numbers format. Good thing you were taking pictures. Good song choice to go with it:-)

    2. wow! What a grand old age your dog has gotten to...and I am sorry about your old landlady. I once had a landlady try that with me...said I had put up border in a rental house..I told her that I would never pick a border that hideous lol. oy. people. And right here it's 95 Today. I can understand how dismal it would be to not have a summer though. Hope you get to Texas soon.

    3. Move to Houston so we can hang out! lol

    4. I wish we'd only had 78 minutes of summer so far. I'm dreading August.

      Also, yeah. The Rangers are on fire right now (yay)! Every team goes through the off years. I'm sure they'll pick back up soon. I can't tell you how many years I've had to suffer through being a Rangers fan. And a Cubs fan.

      Hoping you make it down here SOON!

    5. Awww, your Parker is a sweetie. My mini schnauzer Joey gets a kick out of her neighbors, two adorable Boston Terriers. Cute singularly, double cute in a pair!!

    6. Awe, he sure is the cutest 100 year old I've ever seen!
      Wow, 78 minutes! I'm moving that way, move on over and make room. It's crazy here, an not normal either. We've been in the high 90's! Yuck.
      But I guess I should not complain too much. I have family in Arizona and the norm this time of year is 100+.

      My dad taught me to always follow my gut feelings! Good for you!
