 Quotes of the week:

"Grandpa, grandpa, grandpa....." Riley made up a song about me.  Unless it is about her other grandpa.

"I'm not wearing that hat, it is an old man hat."  The Seafood King's granddaughter on my offer to trade hats with her.

"That's not how my dad fixed it at my house."  Aiden commenting on my basketball hoop fixing strategy.

"Didn't you learn anything working in that hardware store?  A phone customer's query when I told him I didn't know any no-cost way to keep his neighbor's cat from peeing on his house.

Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

That must be one really big cat to be peeing on his house. Sorry Merle, I just had a mental picture of the cat actually peeing on his house - like on the roof....

Anyway, should you get a loopy question like that again direct him to the fruit section of the supermarket where he can buy oranges, peel them and put the peel on the doorstep. No, I don't know whether it really works but it should keep him quiet for a while

Squirt the cat with a Super Soaker whenever you see it near your house. It will grow fearful of your house and stay away.
