No Rick, that would be opening presents too early.

Our day of retribution will be Nov 3rd, 2020. Just 13 months away. At this point the longer Trump stays in office the worse his defeat will be. In the history of voting for s**t there has never been a bigger get out the vote effort than the one being carried out by President Donald John Trump for the benefit of Democrats.

Lie, lie, Mr. President guy,
Ukraine doesn't want involvement and said they won't lie,
Why would you involve a struggling country and US ally?
You think you're really clever and wily and sly,
I'll be dancing on your grave on the day that you fry.

My post to Donald J Trump:

Let's be honest, you were elected because to a lot of the electorate, you were not Hillary Clinton.

Everyone knew you were not successful in life, either as a businessman, as a human being, but simply as a lawless individual, and we hoped that you would just coast for four years and not muck everything up. You were not elected because of your campaign promises - none of which you have completed 2.75 years of your tenure in, any way.

But, like a kid who had never won anything in his life before, you got keys to the proverbial candy store and you could not control yourself and you binge-ate feeding your inner corruption and lawlessness.

Now here we are. You're being investigated for crimes and misdemeanors under the Constitution and the next president will have to undo all of the damage that you have done.

Donald J Trump, you're a corrupt human hurricane and you deserve all of the ridicule coming your way.

There is a guy who lives in my building one floor down that has two dogs and one of the dogs looks like Sammy. Iíve known about this guy and his two dogs for about a year and Sammy and I would run into them from time-to-time.

I havenít seen this guy or his two dogs since before Sammy passed away in early May this year.

Because our elevator is broken (again!) we have to take the stairwell and I ran into him and his two dogs. I mentioned that Sammy passed-away in May and the dog that looks like Sammy was all over me.


The guy told me he was looking for new homes for the two dogs because heís being deployed. He found a home for one of the dogs, but not the one that looks like Sammy. That dogís name is Roxas and heís 18 months old.

The guy offered me the dog that looks like Sammy. I told him I would think about it. I thought about it for 3-4 hours and I went down to talk to him. I asked about the dogís health, diet, barking, age, sleeping habits, pooping habits.

I have made an appointment for Thursday to have Roxas checked-out with a physical exam. Sammyís old vet is literally three blocks away - walking distance.

The main difference between this dog and Sammy is that Sammy had two gold-colored eyes - else these two dogs look like they could have come from the same litter.

If I get Roxas (Japanese video game character name), I'll change his name to Rocksus. It will still sound the same to him. The spelling of Roxas seems too girly. Hmm

Very nice that he likes you. It takes a while to learn the routine in a new home. Be patient. I have to keep my intact male lab separated from our giant neutered mastiff. The big guy just hassles the intact male constantly if they are together. It's a pain in the ass, and the female lab pup not in with the male is getting a lot more socialized than her sister. The point is, they get a lot more socialized if they can spend a lot of time with you or with other older dogs.

Rick, I'm so excited to hear this! Life without a dog is just no life at all. I look forward to hearing about all your adventures with Rocksus!

I'd have said "cat", with the understanding that it was a Maine Coon or similar 20lb monster (they actually grow working brains at that size, it seems). grin Dogs are great too though, good luck, Rick!

Now, my American friends, that there president of yours is making the financial markets a wee bit tricky to trade, eh. Any idea of when you're going to be wrapping up this nonsense and getting back down to the sort of steady, value-focused business that made America famous?

My last trip through was during the January "shut down". It says a lot about the U.S. that the TSA folks and customs people were working with no prospect of pay (I did say "thanks" after I was through). I get the occasional cheeky question ("Now let's see, where have you been, Brazil? Columbia? Venezuela"... "Nope, nowhere quite that interesting."... stamp, stamp) but have always been treated professionally.

I've been to countries where, at the first sign of operational difficulty, such offices were simply not staffed... all day...

Rick, I hope that Roxas/RockUS joins you in life. Moxxie, my son's Pitty, is just 29 months, now. She LOVES Huskies because they are energetic players. Have you ever been to Fort Steilacoom dog park? Hands down, best dog park anywhere. Also, near my house! Meet you there!

Simon, how is it that after 12 years, you're still a newbie? Let's work on that. [Btw, were working on correcting "the error of 2016". Maybe by next January the markets will stabilize. ]

I took Rocksus out for a test drive today. I picked him up and we immediately went for a car ride to the dog park at Point Defiance.

Man can that dog run!!! laugh

By the time Sammy and I moved here, he was 10 years old, and he just moseyed around watching the other dogs when I took him to Point Defiance dog park.

At one point today, all of the dogs were running together in one pack and that was really fun.

When Sammy and I went to Pt Defiance, other dog-owners told me about Steilacoom dog park, and they too said it was the best one in the area. I'd love to meet you there and have a dog day afternoon. smile

Later, I played with Rocksus in the hallway on the floor of my building. Sammy had a Kong tennis ball that was a squeaker. He used to play with it, but as he aged, he didn't have any interest.

Rocksus picked right up on it and we had a good 20 mins of play time after the dog park. I was trying to wear him out, he's very energetic being only 18 mos old.

(A few times I called Rocksus "Sammy." nono I swear, if Rocksus had two gold eyes, he would be Sammy 2.0)

Tomorrow is the Vet. Saturday is all of his shots. Sunday the groomer.

Right now, Rocksus is right by my side and he's sleeping. smile (Sammy was more of a GDI (god-damned independent and he would lie down by the TV, or his favorite spot was in the bathroom because of the tile floor.)) Rocksus is also very affectionate and very kissy. Sammy was very stand-offish and never, ever kissed adults - only children. Hmm

I'm supposed to take Rocksus back to his owner at 5pm today.

I wouldn't worry too much about what name you call him. Roscoe gets called all sorts of things but seldom do I call him Roscoe. Scooby, Gooby, and Goofy mostly but just Boy works fine too.

I like cats too, Simon, but both mine died in June and I don't plan to replace them, it just wouldn't be fair since I'm not going to live as long as a cat. 8 of my 9 lives are over if ya get my drift. When Roscoe dies I'm gonna get an old dog who's happy to lay around all day and doesn't need much exercise. Just like me.
