My advice for today: never take time for granted.
As in, don’t assume your smartphone clock is always right. Like I did this morning.
I could turn off my usual 6:30 alarm (because I hate alarms) and check my email, Facebook, etc. before I woke up the dog, who I could hear snoring on his pillow.
A lazy, relaxing start to the day.
When the two of us ventured out into the living room some 45 minutes later, the DVR clock held a surprise —
It was 5:45, not 6:45 like my phone seemed to think.
A quick check of my phone’s clock settings revealed that the “automatic date and time” selection that links your phone to the network time was unchecked.
I don’t know how that happened. I certainly didn’t do it. But consider this post an opportunity for you to double check your smartphone settings…
And get all the sleep you deserve tonight.
My dog Rory turned 16 last December, but he has the appetite of a puppy.
Translation: he’s become a picky little shit.
I’ve tried rewarding him with treats after he finishes his dinner. When that stopped working, I gave him the treats first. Then switched to different treats. Then changed his food. Then his bowl. Then started hand-feeding him.
I’m willing to do the work.
Last week I learned a trick from my vet. I don’t know why she has been holding out on me for so long, but it got him to eat like gangbusters.
She recommended chicken flavor with broth. I applied said smear, and could barely get the dish on the floor before Rory was face-deep in his dinner.
I was a very happy Mama Dog.
You can be, too.
Back in my improv comedy days, we had a mantra:
There are no mistakes. Use everything you are given.
The members of the Pinellas County sheriff’s department in Largo, Florida subscribe to the same motto.
And it took two months for anyone to notice.
With a ‘no mistakes’ attitude, Sheriff Bob Gualtieri just announced that the rug will be sold at auction with the proceeds benefiting a local animal rescue organization.
Appears the rug was right all along.
Your life is a reflection of how you sleep, and how you sleep is a reflection of your life. — Dr. Rafael Pelayo
My dog makes my life great (and we both sleep like babies).
