I give Sam massages. He really likes his lower back and hind legs massaged.

I am trying not to be a grumpy old man, but... I watched (most of) the Mariners-Phillies game today and I am getting irate at the lousiness of the umpiring staff. Last week Tony Randazzo threw Lloyd McLendon (Mariners manager) out of two games in a row, mostly "because he was there." Even the other members of the crew were, like "WTF?" Today, the Mariners were starting a rally in both the 8th and 9th innings, and both rallies were ended (including the last at bat) by obviously bad called strikes. (What makes it particularly frustrating is that the Mariners are in contention for a playoff berth for the first time in 13 years.) This is the first time I've actually wondered if there is something going on by the umpires - because the calls were so obviously bad, and so critical to the game - and that really disturbed me. I'm a fan, but not a 'fanatic.' Have other people observed these shenanigans? Or, am I just being a grumpy old man?

Rick, about that adorable puppy massage. If I know puppies like I know puppies, that one was already asleep before the massage began. When they're out, they're out. I was holding a puppy in a sitting position on my lap once, and he fell asleep, completely upright and cute and all. I could have painted a clown face on him and he wouldn't have known a thing.

Not saying I did.

My Bob is a massage therapist and he taught me how give massages and I practiced on him. I give Sammy massages because one of his epilepsy medications, Potassium Bromide, messes with his lower body so I massage him constantly. I thought that doggie massage therapy business might be a good opportunity or me - or at least a part-time side business when I move to Portland next month.

I'm tired of office work. My last job at the school district did me in. I can't do 40 hours a week in an office any longer - I'm too restless for that sort of environment.

I need to try new things in life - or go back to my true love that I have tremendous amount of passion for: high-end restaurant biz

I love good food, good wine, and talking about food and wine, the flavors of food, and the presentation.

I watched this video and practiced on Sammy. He's been so attentive to me since I started giving him this type of massage:



We seem to have bonded even more - if that is even possible. He looks at me with love in his eyes now.
