Woo Hoo! It's Humpday and I feel like that "it's bacon" dog! Since I was a good boy Monday and Tuesday, they're releasing me from the home on a 24 hour pass. Little do they know that it doesn't take me that long. On second thought, maybe I'll keep that little tidbit to myself.
Speaking of tidbits and that "bacon" dog, perhaps a graphic might give you an example of how I sometimes react when Humpday comes. While I do not attach myself to women's legs (even though it's Humpday), I can sit up, speak and play fetch. Although I don't roll-over, it has been suggested that I make an occasional effort.
Nevertheless, I'll be going somewhere in AREA 51 tonight, the time and place is uncertain, but that's never stopped me before. As long as I don't look like I'm wandering the streets, the caretakers in the home will never suspect anything.
The Pictures: Strange relationships are the norm in California but not usually in the animal world. Well, my little pinecones, I've found a few that are a little strange but cute as well.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
One dismal rainy night, a taxi driver spotted an arm waving from the shadows of an alley halfway down the block. Even before he rolled to a stop at the curb, a figure leaped into the cab and slammed the door. Checking his rear view mirror as he pulled away, he was startled to see a dripping wet, naked woman sitting in the back seat. "Where to?" he stammered. "Union Station," answered the woman. "You got it," he said, taking another long glance in the mirror.
The woman caught him staring at her and asked, "Just what the hell are you looking at, driver?" The driver replies, "Well ma'am, I noticed that you're completely naked, and I was just wondering how you'll pay your fare." The woman spread her legs, put her feet up on the front seat, smiled at the driver and said, "Does this answer your question?" Still looking in the mirror, the cabbie asked, "Got anything smaller?"
A doctor walked into a bank. Preparing to endorse a check, he pulled a rectal thermometer out of his shirt pocket and tried to 'write' with it. Realizing his mistake, he looked at the thermometer with annoyance and said, "Well that's great, just great... some asshole's got my pen."
That's it for today my little lemon aides. More tomorrow.
