Random Acts of Shifeness

  • Quincy update: The fat basset is doing well. We will not know how good until we see the vet again next week but after a few rough days after the surgery he seems to be back to his old self which is nice. Honestly last week was tough because we thought we were going to have to put him down and just having the third roommate back home is awesome. Mrs. Shife and I are thinking of it as a Basset cruise. We extended Quincy's life for maybe 6 months or maybe 2 years but whatever the case may be we are going to enjoy the fat basset cruise with Captain Furry Pants at the helm as long as we can.
  • Speaking of Quincy how come every time I go in the back yard I always manage to step in a pile of his crap but dogs never step in it. I think I might start pooping in the back yard to get me revenge. Or maybe I should pick up his poop more often.
  • I can't recall where I picked up this beauty of a saying - "I am going to scale Mount Rushmore and dick slap Thomas Jefferson" - but if you take that exact phrase in quotes and do a Google search only one website shows up and yep it is mine. You probably could have made it through your day without knowing that but you know how I love to share.
  • And if you are in a searching mood you will see that I am still hanging in there for Ambushed Paddington. If you don't know what an Ambushed Paddington is you probably do not want to know but feel to click this Ambushed Paddington link to learn more. It is under the Shameless Plug post.
  • Thank you to everyone who voted on what shirt I should wear with Baby Shifley during our first photo opportunity. It looks like (C) was the winner. I will have to run it by the Boss for the final vote. And by the Boss I mean Bruce Springsteen. We are very close.
  • Well I have to wrap things up. I have to teach a water aerobics class in 20 minutes. Have a good rest of your day and enjoy the weekend.

I was always more fond of the Angry Pirate myself. I may have already mentioned that in response to your other Ambushed Paddington posts, but who can remember such things?

Glad to here Q is doing fine. Yes, he's so cool he warrants being known simply by one letter.

I'm so glad to hear the Fat Bassett is doing well! I really am. Give him a good squeeze and a kiss for me.

Oh my. I just noticed I misspelled "hear" as "here". Oops. Please excuse my ignorance. I am just a duck after all. Pecking out these words one letter at a time is not the easiest thing in the world you know.

XOXOXO

Don't forget your water wings. Throw an extra dog bone Quincy's way for me.

Oh my god mr.S! I am working in a quiet, respectable library and can't stop laughing out loud. Some local upright ladies are staring at me. A trip to your Ambushed Paddington has me slayed!

I am so glad to hear that Quincy is doing well. And I, too, seem to step in dog shit every time I go into my back yard. It's a huge back yard. Why must my dogs poop right by the door? Huh?

Come on man, no love for the donkey punch?

Glad to hear that Q is doing well. Pick up his shit man, he got no thumbs!

excellent news on quincy.

i wish he could teach a certain furry friend of mine not to step on the presents she leaves me in the yard.

I'm really glad to hear (well, read) that Quincy is doing ok. And it's funny that you mentioned dick slapping Thomas Jefferson. I was searching for that phrase last week and was disappointed to see there were no websites with it. Thanks for adding your two cents to the world wide web.

I'm a bit scared of the Ambushed Paddington thing. What, oh what am I going to find there?

I want to take a water aerobics class. I want a reason to wear a shower cap in a pool.

Glad to hear Quincy is doing good!! Definitely enjoy his company, dogs easily the best pets. As for the crap in the yard I have always wondered the same thing.
