We got an unexpected gift Sunday evening. Bonnie’s new mama has to have surgery so can’t keep her since she’s a single mother and will have no help. She loved Bonnie and really hated to give her back, and I can understand that….Bonnie is a real sweetheart. In the picture above she was telling Ronnie how her heart was broken, but Ronnie told her not to cry because Daddy still loved her. By the time I got home from work Monday morning at 6 A.M. all her tears were dry and she was so happy to see me that she tinkled on the floor. Now that’s happiness there, bubba! When’s the last time your spouse was so happy to see you that they tinkled on the floor? …That’s what I thought.

Last night was the last night shift I’ll have to work for a week, and I’m not saying it was my worst ever shift at work, but it was up there in the top 5 or 10% of my almost 28 year career at this place. We had problems stemming from places in the company that I wouldn’t even have been able to point to on a map which boiled down to trouble for us. Then, while we were shutting some equipment down it caused something else to go haywire, and then the shit was on the rest of the night. The general consensus was to go straight home and hit the hooch. Liquor might not make last night any better but a good stiff drink could make you feel better all over , and help you to come to terms with the situation that caused the stress to begin with. Carried too far, it could actually make it worse or even get yourself fired.

When I was younger and stupider, I’d just take it out on others. I think I’ve taken it out on others enough. So it’s time for us all to take the blame for our parts and let others do what they were responsible for. That way no one gets blamed for it all. I HAVE SPOKEN! So, there!

Update at 6 P.M.: There is a new gentleman coming for Bonnie tomorrow evening.  He sounded so happy that he’d found her.  He has a 15 year old daughter who’s wanted a dog for a while but he kept putting her off.  He said tomorrow is her birthday and when she wakes up she won’t have a present but she’ll have one tomorrow night!  Wow, how cool is that?  And they have a pet door and a huge fenced yard and he’ll finish all her medical.  Sent from Heaven?  I hope so!!!!!!!
