   Ole buzzard posted on Photography  Gram, you were asking about coffee table books on one of my posts. I just came across this one, and just based on the description of the book, it is one that I would add to my library. The Norfolk and Western was the very last railroad to dieselize in 1959. It was primarily a coal hauling railroad, and management did not want to "poke a thumb in the eye" of their biggest customers by dieselizing.

   Bettijo  My husband was President of the National Association of Railroad Passengers for many years. He was a big steam locomotive fan and probably more knowledgeable about trains that anyone who ever lived. Once (in late 50s early 60s ) the N&W was running the last Class J through Virginia. We went to watch it. I was leaning out the passenger window taking movies while he was driving. The track ran alongside the highway. I kept saying "he is getting away, he is getting away" and hubby kept driving faster. A highway patrol going the other way, did a U turn and pulled us over. We spent the night in the local lockup on "reckless driving" charges. Wonder how fast that J was traveling. Oh, I almost forgot, a trainman was leaning out the cab taking OUR picture of getting arrested. Bet he got a laugh out of that.

   Ole buzzard posted on Jokes  I just received an audit on my tax return for 2013 back from the IRS.
It puzzles me! They are questioning how many dependents I claimed.

I guess it was because of my response to the question: "List all dependents?"

I replied: 12 million illegal immigrants; 3 million crack heads; 42 million unemployed people on food stamps; 2 million people in over 243 prisons; Half of Mexico ; 535 persons in the U.S. House and Senate; and one useless President.

Evidently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.

I KEEP ASKING MYSELF, WHO DID I MISS?

   Ole buzzard posted on Sports  Packers scored an ugly win over the Falcons tonight. After being up 31-7 at halftime, the final score was 43-37. The Pack needs to learn that there are two halves to a football game, and they need to play both of them!

   Ole buzzard posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  Our little Mabel had been acting out of sorts for a couple of days, so we took her to the vet. He had seen her a month ago for her routine wellness exam, and while her blood sugar was a little elevated, he didn't think it enough to be concerned. Well, we did a more comprehensive blood workup, and this time her blood sugar was way out whack, and it turns out our little darling is diabetic. Today is her third day on insulin, and she is back to her mischievous self!

   BirdsNest  Poor baby, it is miserable being a human diabetic. I hope she does well on the insulin, give her a big hug from Bird and Hagar. Good call to take her to the vet and get to the root of her problem.

   Ole buzzard  I think sometimes we drive our vets crazy. Yotty and I are so attuned to the pups that we are at the vet's at the first sign of any trouble.

   Balogreene  Mabel, it's not so bad being diabetic. Just those shots, and hopefully, your own special food, and lots of love.
We too drive our vets crazy Buzz, but, they are glad we do, we catch things early, while they are treatable, usually. But, it is hard to go in and say, "She just isn't herself, nothing too specific".

   Balogreene  Squished nose dogs always look sad, in my mind. They have big round eyes, and their mouths naturally go down. When they are playing or whatever, they do smile. But our Shih Tzu often looks really sad right after breakfast when she comes for love. While I scritch her, she looks concerned. It' just something I've gotten used to.

   Gerty  I once had a little dog(Bogart-an Australian Terrier ). Little Boggie was a diabetic---and what a trooper. Never a whimper from his insulin shots. Lived a long and happy life.
Wishing the same for adorable Mabel!

   Balogreene  Christmas 1976, my first apartment (and tree ), and my first cat (black, named Loki ). I had a 4 foot, table top tree. Every night when I came home, Loki had knocked the tree down. So, I began putting it in the bathtub and closing the bathroom door every day, then putting it on the table, so I could enjoy it in the evening. When I finally rented a house, and wanted a "real" tree, my dad wrapped a loop around the top, and fastened it to the wall so Loki couldn't knock it down.

   Escaped commieny  Our first Beaglie and Amberglo a Chesapeake retriever played tag and took down our tree, I had forgotten about that until your post. That is the same look on their faces, Who Me? Not Me! Not sure if I can put up a tree this year, I usually put it the front window of the guest room, but have the DH in there.
