Hound Birthday, Shocking Karaoke, & Mother

Our loyal hound, Baxter, turned 2 yesterday. We celebrated about as much as could be expected for a dog’s birthday by giving him a piece of bacon with breakfast, taking him along to Home Depot, and letting him run around the Bartholics’ backyard at night when we went over to visit.

What better way to celebrate a birthday than a swim in filthy murky pond water?

Also this week, Karaoke League #3 came to a merciful end. Our team was horrible this time, finishing in last place. I guess it didn’t help that the girl on our team dropped out after two weeks and we inherited a castoff from another team. Nevertheless, we had fun, as is the goal. In our team’s finale, teammate James decided to spice things up while we sang Nazareth’s “Love Hurts” by passing out dog shock collars for us to wear, allowing the crowd to shock us with remotes. Once I realized the shock was so small I could barely feel it, I agreed to participate and we just overacted. But the crowd bought it and thought it was hilarious.

Lastly, happy Mother’s Day to my mother, Marcie Ann Glanzer, who received a special decadent treat in the mail from me and Lauren. Here’s an old photo of Mom I dug up while at home recently.

  1. That’s an awesome picture of me…I look like I was stoned. (I wasn’t). I just finished the last of the berries and they were delicious! I give them a high rating for anyone who is wondering if Sharri’s Berries are worth it or not. Thanks again!

  2. Come to think of it, my dog was 2-3 before she quit being total disaster, too. She ate every cell phone, computer and every cord that went with it, the vaccuum cleaner cord too. awesome. She only occasionally digs through the garbage now. Not so bad!
