Ah; Vacationgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Unk's Troll-free Private Saloon : One Thread
Ah; vacation. I seldom take off time, but I took today off. What am I doing; Fishing? Lounging in the sun? Going to a ball game?
No; I am repairing drywall. The pup is helping me. Now, I am an inherently messy person; the job is inherently messy; pupís help makes it worse. What a mess. I have this joint compound which has an indicator. It is pink when you put it on and turns white when it dries. The pup has now turned white and can no longer move. I can either chip him out and wash him or paint him concrete color and use him as a lawn ornament. The decision would have been easier except for the following fact. I was working and heard this lapping sound. He was drinking ale from my mug. I remember that he preferred a shot of bourbon before bed in cold weather, but I didnít know that he liked ale. Sure, Helen shares a glass with a mule, but that isnít me.

Wow, the eyes are going. I looked at the title of your thread and saw "Ah, Vatican" and opened it with anticipation of something juicy only to find (gasp) drywall!
Well, puppies are often juicy.

Had a dog once that liked to drink beer and would get grumpy if disturbed, but then that was in Florida a million years ago. Missy. She adored Tigre the cat who grew up with her and she was so gentle with him, so I figured it was the heat or the hangover that put her out of sorts.
A lawn ornament would be nice, you could enjoy her without any of the negatives.
But then you would probably have to get another dog and do all of the work training her/him, so, read the container on how to remove the dried paste or give her a spotty haircut.

Z, you must think I'm stupid enough to offer a glass to the mule. He can't get his nose into a glass. We share out of a mixing bowl.

I had a newfoundland that could outdrink any sum-bitch in the county or the state for that matter, beer, wine, liquor it didn't matter he was a four legged lush. The odd thing was, he would turn his nose and walk away from any soft drink.
You could say "he wasn't a chaser kind of dog" : )

Z, My vacation begins in one week, Strange as it may seem, but I have scheduled two weeks of building a stone wall. No pup to help me, however I shall enjoy a glass or two of ale while I work at it.
