Well, my wife has been in Texas with a couple of her long-time female buddies at some sort of a knitting retreat they meet up at every year in mid-October. Before she left, she fixed me lots of goodies to eat that all I would have to do is pop into the microwave. She left me with some simple wifely instructions like "stay out of trouble, if you can." Well, for the most part I have. I've been out to eat three times, bought a new photo printer for my computer, and just today I obtained "Julio". Julio is a 10 week old Chihuahua and I figure he will fit in pretty well with the two house beagles and the 5 outdoor cats. I think my wife is going to be surprised at how well I have done in keeping out of trouble while she's been gone. I pick her up at the airport on Sunday evening so that leaves only tomorrow for fun. Sunday morning I will clean up the house a bit and shave. Julio is at the vet's right now getting worked over, shots, a bath, and whatever else he might need. I figure right now he has only cost me about $50.00 an ounce. Yep. The wife will be surprised.
