Is this Weird?
My soil's pH is confused. It doesn't know which color of Hydrangea it prefers.
I don’t know why I do it because mentally I'm insulted and emotionally I’m suffering. But, I’m weak and do it again and again. I look watch the Craigslist Pets section. I get angry and sad and other things. But one thing jumped out at me the other day—a trend that is puzzling.
One good thing about the pet listing is that you can post your lost pet and some are even found and returned. I was reading one of those ads when the light bulb came on. All over Southwest Missouri, Boxers (dogs) are jumping their fences. That in itself is not unusual, but lately with sooo many boxers escaping, I’m wondering….
Where have all the Boxers gone? (Imagine this question to the tune of Where have all the flowers gone? playing in the background. Just do it!)
The photos of the missing dogs look like happy well cared for dogs, so, why are they leaving? Are they Tweeting each other? Are they a part of a Flash Mob? Will they be dancing somewhere in unison? Are they meeting to protest? Are they planning a takeover of CL?
My beloved Boxer, Suki Aki (1990-2000), jumped the fence once and plowed through it once. But, the last time she did it, Suki immediately ran to the front door and knock on it (don’t ask me with what, but my mother-in-law heard her). She and my daughter let her back in.
Suki really didn’t want to leave home for good, now did she? Of course, she didn’t have a cell phone or a Twitter account or “things” might have been different.
Confused Hydrangea bushes and runnaway Boxers. It's weird. As my sister use to say, "Some things can be explained and some things can't."
