Bailey had her female surgery last week. The Humane Society was nice enough to give us a break on the price. They sent home four pain pills, one for each of the next four days. We mixed the first one with banana and she wouldn't go near it. Turns out she likes the taste of the pills and will take it out of your hand. She just doesn't care for banana... yet. We're trying to keep her calm. Not supposed to let her run for ten days. Ever try keeping a puppy from running? At least there's plenty of investigating to do close to home. The smell of the grass, the first bumble bee of the year. . . she likes being outside. What great weekend weather we had!
Another surgery tomorrow. This time for our first born. He'll get the section of blocked intestine removed so he can finally eat solid food again. Everybody is happy this is getting taken care of, none more so than he. He's hoping to again stay on 2SW at Waukesha Memorial where he had such a pleasant experience a few weeks ago.
Friday wasn't a good day to be an overhead door at my work. A door was pushed in by an electric pallet jack in the evening and the one right next to it was messed up around 10:00 in the morning. I was mostly done unloading the shipping container when I temporarily closed the door to keep cold air out during our morning meeting. When I returned I could barely lift the door and the dock plate was down. The truck clearly had pulled out and backed back in. The driver thought I was done when he didn't hear me for a while. If the door didn't get messed up nothing would have come of it. Instead it turns out the door was the least of the driver's worries. It's a huge violation to pull out without confirmation we're done unloading. Not only could the $10,000 drives stacked four high have toppled - they no longer were secured with straps - I could have been on the forklift between trailer and dock when he moved. Kind of ironic we were all at a safety meeting when one of the biggest violations occured.
There's nothing I can add to all that's been written about the election. I was glad to be part of it, happy to have a greater than 40% turn out and, now, happier than ever that our numbers came out correctly. I've had the pleasure of being trained by Kathy Nickolaus and will support her now. Who hasn't made mistakes? Maybe the procedure will change, but I hope she isn't pressured to resign. One of the best columns written about the situation was Jessica McBride's in yesterday's Freeman. Kathy Nickolaus' press conference is rather interesting too.
You may have heard about the comedy nights at D Mo's this last weekend? Here's something Dobie Maxwell said about it.
I've mentioned I know "Milwaukee Jack" Jack Rosga, so I'll now mention his case has worked it's way through the courts and he was sentenced to 20 years for racketeering and conspiracy to commit violence in aid of racketeering. He was a good customer of ours in my last job who eventually rented space from us and helped us move to Racine. I found him pleasant under a gruff exterior.
That's all for now. Hopefully going to Carroll's Seder Dinner Tuesday. Let you know.
