Ya gotta buy yourself "Kiss Me, I'm Vaccinated!" paraphernalia. Then you can sneeze wherever you want without judgement. :)

For the dog, have you considered frisbee/catch for Moxie? My GF just got a pup of her own... tossing the frisbee is wonderful if I want to be 'lazy' about exercising the absolute unit of a dog. Helps that she's a golden retriever, so its an instinct to bring the toy back. For a Lab (hoping Moxie plays more in the Lab side of the gene pool), fetch needs a wee bit more training, but very do-able.

Still reading through the article, but a certain francopoli comment has some warrant here.

Crap. Right after Mother's Day too... My mom's gonna be pissed when I break the news.

Just another 1/3 of a beer in the Pub for Cinco de Drinko?

Imagine writing an article about Solar and Wind Energy, then not talking about Wind Energy. Smh.

1. bippity : Biden’s commitment to Wind Energy - specifically offshore wind.

2. boppity : The rise of a major player in American Wind Energy

3. blam : USGS’s database of existing WF. Doesn’t account for the rumblings of U.S. offshore windfarms

4. kablooey : Local Texan reaping benefits of converting his oil rigs to wind turbines.

Nice beard!!

That (very scientific) method adds a whole new layer of meaning to the phrase “pucker up”.

On a serious note, I’m in the habit of flipping my pillow/changing its sheets when a certain house cat decides to sit upright on it. Maybe the fear of pink eye a la cat isn’t veritable after all. 🙌

Gih! Shame on me for assuming.

    traffic is either people who live there or people who run/bike through (which is how I know it best)

Lovely... you looking far from where you’re currently settled in? “A city” sounds as though its out of the way.

Quite the opposite side geographically. We’re swamp people through and through.

EDIT: Whoops, pressed submit too soon. Anyways, insert pun about Florida here. Tesla of the South is a gorgeous white German Sheperd mix.

We honestly have no clue how people make it through real winters. The sun and heat is vital to us... otherwise, I bet Seattle is wondrous in summer.

This was the first song to pop into my head. :) My gf's neighbor has a dog named Tesla, so I hear that tune in my head more often than not.

Also a close third...

I am no homeowner, but a few in my circle have recently become some. Those ten months may be how long it takes to find the house. It never hurts to idly look or get e-mail updates. That seems to be the way (realtor or not) friends and family happen upon their latest permanent addresses.

My brother has been on the house hunt for around a year, and during that time has found an SO who’s been on the hunt just as long. Funny enough, they’ve toured the same houses/looking for the same characteristics before becoming an item. Puts them both in an interesting spot since they seem to be a good fit for the long haul... but now the matter of moving forward with both of their personal goals (of homeownership) needs re-adjusting in the frame of a life together.

No doubt others here will have more to add, with more life experience to boot. Maybe or maybe not this pub, but I’m interested to see where it goes! Excited for you.
