What!!!  Dog Poop Problems AGAIN??
Good Grief!  We have to say it again, "PLEASE PICK UP AND PROPERLY DEPOSIT YOUR DOG POOP!"  Why is this a never ending problem?  Now, get this....sometimes poop is picked up and then left lying in poop bags along the EE trails! What's up with that?!!  Do these people think we have poop bag pickup in EE?  We don't!!  The Poop Patrol is positively prostrated.  Words fail us....

          Poop-------------->  Bag--------------->  Your Trash       

ME: (sobbing my heart out, eyes were swollen, nose red)...I can't see you anymore. I am not going to let you hurt me like this again!
TRAINER: It was a sit-up. You did one sit-up.
Thanks Neighbor Jim Sollars!
You know you're old when you go to bed at the time you used to go out...
Thanks Neighbor Barbara Copeland

I wonder what my parents did to fight boredom before the internet....
I asked my 17 brothers and sisters, and they didn't know either.
