Return of the Shocking Squirrel/ It's important to have a sense of humor

Tom making a funny face
One of the things we learned is that it's important to have a sense of humor in every situation. No matter how serious things are, try and find something to make you laugh. We do that all the time. If one of us is grumpy for some reason, the other will smile a goofy grin and stare at the grumpy one until we both crack up. 

This morning, as I was about to head out the door to walk the dogs at 7:15am, I heard a loud "POP" from outside. As happened just 1 month ago, a SQUIRREL climbed onto the transformer outside... and he was electrocuted, shorting out all the power to our house and the surrounding houses. 
   Needless to say, after walking the dogs, I returned to a house without electricity so I couldn't telework. That meant running around the house, getting dressed (again) for work, getting the dogs situated and heading into the office. SIGH. 
   When I got there, I let Tom know about it, and he said "Well, at least the squirrel won't be bothering the bird feeder anymore."

Even people running for serious positions (whether you support it or not) can be funny!  This article was in the Huffington Post. Humor is the key to a better world. 

Hillary Clinton's 404 Error Page Is Perfection
If the idea of a punning president makes you uncomfortable, then we've got some bad news for you. Hillary Clinton stands a pretty good chance of becoming president, and her new website shows she's not afraid to bring the puns.
Check out the site's 404 page, which appears when you try to navigate to a page that doesn't exist:

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
