Where does this holster attach: hip, leg, under the arm/shoulder?

on the flip side, there are some things I and we cannot readily do because of our doggie and the care she requires.

i can't just pack up and attend a faraway pistol match, as she won't walk with Mrs. DAB.

we can't just take a weekend trip somewhere by ourselves either. no way we could leave her in a hotel room all day as we explored someplace.

so there are pros and cons to having a pet more complicated than a gold fish in an outdoor pond (my original 20 have multiplied to about 100!).

Yes, it is nice not to have to worry about the dogs while I'm away. But I miss them greeting me when I come home! I'm planning to wait tell I retire to get another pet....unless I rescue a squirrel

.....that all seems to go out the window when the right little furry face comes along!

Good Morning everyone! .....thanks for the coffee Wendy, but I'll skip all that sugar and go for some fresh fruit instead.

our cistern pump died saturday, so today i have to diagnose what is wrong. start with the power, make sure it has some. then i'll likely have to get into the cistern (presently full of 36" of cold water) and disconnect the pump from the piping, pull it out, document what type/model it is, and then order a new one. it's only 2 years old, so it should not have failed already.

old pump removed from cistern, new pump ordered, should be here in about a week. then have to reverse the whole process and do the wiring. yippee.

and yes, the water in the cistern, 36" deep, is very, very cold. major shrinkage.

receipt says we got in August 2014. so almost 3 years now.

it was too big for what we use it for. so down one size this time. a Leader Diverton 1000 should work nicely.

When our last dog died we were going to wait awhile, too. I passed by our groomer's shop and remembered we had an appointment coming up, and stopped in to let her know Taffy had died. She told me she had a dog coming in from a rescue group she donated her services to.

She told me I really needed to see this dog. So when she called me two days later I went over to see her. She was just finishing up grooming her. She was skin and bones, and covered with flea bites. She had been living on the streets and probably would not have survived much longer.

She placed the dog on my lap and she put both her paws around my neck and hugged me and licked me all over my face. We adopted her that afternoon. That was in 2009. She weighed twice as much as when I met her after a few weeks of a good diet. Best dog I've ever had. We think she is about ten years old now.

We were without a dog for two days.

chevy dealer some years ago: our trucks are very dependable.

ok, cool, i'll take that one.

someone selling extended warranties recently: chevy trucks might fail, and are expensive to fix.

mine is fine, i'll save my money and fix it when it needs it.


same discussion applies to other things you buy. manufacturer tells you it's a great product. sales clerk pushes extended warranty at check out.

what is it? is it good or bad?

Easy money for them to sell extended. How many time does the extended warranty not get used? Not as many as you would think, I'm guessing!

Paid for an extended warranty for my truck. Have had to use it once so far. Glad I had it. Still good for another yr. Appliances - I don't waste my money on extended warranties. But that's me.
