So, I watched this "guest" in my house washing their hands the first time. First pouring on the Dawn dishwashing liquid - which is a big no-no in my house since I have anti-bacterial pump hand soap available even at the kitchen sink and since Dawn dish washing liquid isn't exactly cheap - and wash their hands for about 3 minutes.

About 20 minutes later, this individual comes back to the kitchen sink and does the same thing all over again.  And again.  And again. And again.  I could hardly contain myself, I wanted to question this person as to what, exactly, it was the caused them to want to wash their hands 10 times in a 5 hour period of time?  One of my tenants who also observed this behavior simply labelled it as a compulsive disorder and that was that.

To live with someone acting in that manner all the time would drive  me crazy.

Whatever, just the odd things you see in life that I just have to comment about.

Meanwhile, I am cleaning out the larger fish pond filters every couple of days now.  They get full of fish waste pretty quickly.  It may be that I was allowing too much time to elapse between cleanings and they were wallowing, literally, in their own waste.  Without researching it online one would conclude that can't be good for any living thing.  But, after doing the research anyway - had to look - it's even worse than I thought.

Let's just say here that cleaning out those filters isn't exactly the first thing I want to do when I get home from work.  Yet today, I spent an hour cleaning out both of them thoroughly.  IF that is the reason they were kicking the bucket, that potential problem is going to be eliminated.

I am considering going up the hill this coming weekend.  I really need to have a discussion with my mom about this dog situation.  It really hinges on her.  I am firm with my dogs, yes.  Great Danes are obstinate and stubborn.  They push the limits.  Not just once or twice, they just like to push the limits.  Prince especially.  She doesn't get what having 3 dogs is like, she has one that is a complete handful but it's only one dog.

I like my dogs, if I didn't they would be goners.  I have always loved my dogs.  But, they aren't going to just run me over and do whatever they want.  There are doggy rules and these dogs are WELL aware of those rules.

The political scene is beginning to humor me.  The idea that Romney is now leading - barely - in the polls with all the negative ads coming from the Obama camp is entertaining at the least.

An appropriate ending not possible, time for bed.

G'nite.
