SPECIAL MEN WITH DRAINAGE PROBLEMS

Either Georgia had threatened to clobber Billy Schmidt in the face with a pair of brass knuckles or she had repeated called his cell phone until he finally answered. Within a few hours of informing the old woman of my drainage dilemma, her personal servant maneuvered his old blue pickup truck along... Sign in to see full entry.

WHAT GOOD NEIGHBORS ARE FOR

The night that I found a strange man in my bathtub was the same night that The Monster remembered that Georgia (my 85-year old nosy next-door neighbor) was housing a 1970 Charger in her garage for a Bumfolk County good-ole boy who happened to be a plumber. Evidently, Georgia hadn’t been charging... Sign in to see full entry.

HOW DID THAT GET THERE??

“So you gave the dogs a bath last night?” The Monster growled. He held the coiled steel snake out in front of him as if it were an accusatory finger. My mind reeled back to the prior evening when Sierra had come in from outside sporting a mudslide on her hiney that would have terrified even the most... Sign in to see full entry.

HE WAS HOLDING IT IN HIS HAND

Everything seemed normal that morning. I woke up to find Sinatra curled up between my arm and my side; Sierra was lying by my feet. Ever-so-carefully, I performed my ritualistic attempt at sliding out of bed without the other dogs detecting my movement. If they heard the slightest creek of the bed,... Sign in to see full entry.

THE PARADE OF POOCHES

Though we have lived in our god-forsaken, country-bumpkin house for over five years, I have never quite gotten used to its many shortcomings. Not being able to install a dishwasher drives me nuts. The lack of adequate closet space and cabinets is maddening. And, the fact that every window in the... Sign in to see full entry.

THE PESKY PROBLEM WITH PORK

As far as my six dogs are concerned, my 85-year-old next-door neighbor is as dependable as our postman. Every Monday at about 11:00am, she waddles across our big yard with a bulging plastic grocery bag of goodies for the dogs. Inside that bag are things like a few pounds of bologna, a block of...

IS THERE ANYTHING WORSE THAN WET MAIL?

“The mail is kind of messy,” The Monster said as he tossed a pile of envelopes onto the kitchen table. I bit my lip to keep from saying anything, but one of my eyebrows raised up involuntarily as if questioning him all by itself. He had been telling me for months that he going to fix the mailbox,...

SOMETIMES YOU PAY TO LISTEN TO CELEBRITIES

"See, I told you we could take care of this for 900 dollars!" I chattered excitedly, but as we stood in front of the small red mower, The Monster didn't share my enthusiasm. He had been drug away from the male fantasyland of John Deeres and Cub Cadets, and was now viewing what he would later... Sign in to see full entry.

BUT I'VE DRIVEN PAST THERE A HUNDRED TIMES BEFORE

"Oh my god!" I exclaimed to The Monster. Slowly, the store started to revolve around me. "All of these tractors are running about 2,000 bucks!" "I tried to tell you," he replied. "My brother said it was going to cost us about two thousand." "But, I've driven past both Home Depot and Lowes a hundred... Sign in to see full entry.
