TOPIC:  Back to the grind…Desk Dawg

Posted: 9/6/2011, 5:10 a.m. EDTDoggie


So it's back to it after the last big summer holiday.  I've got three complaints about squirrels stealing acorns on my desk, along with an issue with a rowdy cat who apparently had too much catnip over the weekend, and a mailman who is long overdue for mean dog scare.  I have a lot on my plate for the rest of this short week.

TOPIC:  Labor Day…

So here it is, another Labor Day.  Time for dad to crank up the grill and turn good food into pure carbon.  I keep telling him to turn down the heat.  He seems to think you need temperatures approaching those at the surface of the sun to cook a little hot dog and a couple brats.  On the other hand I should keep my yapper shut, because guess who gets the carbonized food products?

Concerning why love happens between two people:


“One of the people has freckles and so he finds somebody else who has freckles too.”  Andrew, age 6


“No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell… That’s why perfume and deodorant are so popular.”  Mae, age 9


“I think you’re supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn’t supposed to be so painful.”  John, age 8


Fun Facts To Know And Yell

... Original Barbie ...


The first Barbie came in a black and white swim suit with the full name "Barbie Roberts" on the box.


She was introduced in 1959 at a New York toy fair and got mixed reviews.


No one guessed she would be the most successful toy ever produced.


Mattel sells over 1.5 million dolls every week - that's two dolls per second.


Over the last 40 years, 90% of all American girls have owned a Barbie.
