The DUMB "Smart Clock"

This Emerson Alarm Clock Radio will never let you wake up late again. The dual-alarm AM/FM clock radio with SmartSet automatic time setting system is the intelligent alarm clock radio from Emerson! This AM/FM clock radio automatically corrects the year, month, date, day and time as soon as the power supply is restored, so there's no need to reset after an electricity interruption. Features AM/FM radio, slide-rule tuning dial, rotary tuning and volume controls, one-touch radio on/off switch. large, easy-to-read red LED clock display, adjusts from Standard Time to Daylight Saving Time automatically.

Does anyone else own one of these???? You'd think it would be terrific - right WRONG!!
Now they have changed daylight savings the "smart clock" does it on the wrong weekend!!! If you are too dumb preoccupied to remember to set it ahead so it can change back to the correct time it can be a problem! Especially when you work Sunday & have to be up! Luckily my dog knows how to tell time better than my "smart clock"

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
