in town here you have to get a permit to do anything, then if your building isn't up to date on the codes you have to rebuild.   there are a few businesses that are literally falling apart because they don't want to go through the headaches and expense.  the guy that owns a muffler shop said that his building was built in the 50's, back then everything was "up to code"  his roof leaks pretty bad on the back side but to get a permit to do that he'll have to have the whole building inspected and his wiring and plumbing will have to be brought up to date.  which really would be a good thing, but it all works now and is safe, he just has fuses instead of circuit breakers

DeanT - Posted - 05/16/2012:  07:26:11


Our city only lets us have three pets total. Yeah right...

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/16/2012:  10:11:54


I don't remember if we're limited to two or three but I'm nervous that someone might notice the cat in the window changes colors.

dat - Posted - 05/16/2012:  10:25:59



just get some hair dye and dye them all the same color

DeanT - Posted - 05/16/2012:  10:51:30


we have 7 animals. Only the three dogs go outside and are registered

OM45GE - Posted - 05/17/2012:  04:21:23



We've just got Toby the Springer. I'm more worried about my insurance company than the city. They're getting so restrictive about dogs and liability.

dat - Posted - 05/17/2012:  05:55:30



why would the insurance company have anything to do with anybody having a dog?

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/17/2012:  07:16:10


If your dog attacks someone and you get sued, sometimes that's covered under personal liability. Similar to if someone slip and falls on your sidewalk or whatever.

If you have a dog that is "known" to be aggressive, often you're required to have an additional rider on your home owner's insurance to specifically cover any dog bites or attacks.

Where my parents live, owners of aggressive dogs need additional insurance, need to keep the dog in a kennel with high fencing and a roof, can only have the dog out in public if its wearing a muzzle, and a couple of other things. Unfortunately, all that needs to happen for someone's dog to be labelled as aggressive is if someone complains that the dog is aggressive. So if your dog is barking at kids who are throwing rocks at your dog, their parents can complain about your dog and you have to follow all those rules.

DeanT - Posted - 05/17/2012:  07:32:53


Nothing like that around here... and theres pit bulls everywhere

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/17/2012:  08:06:32


I saw an article about a chihuahua that now has to wear a muzzle when his owners have him out because he bit someone.

I saw two articles about it. One basically said, "You've got to be kidding me. Like a chihuahua is that big a threat?" The other was praising the municipality for enforcing the law even on chihuahuas.

I tend to agree with the second article. It bugs me sometimes that so many people are focused on pitbulls and totally ignoring the gazillion other dogs that bite people. And while a chihuahua won't kill you, I still don't want to get bitten by one.

dat - Posted - 05/17/2012:  08:15:54



Some of the worst biters I've been around are chihuahuas, they can be more aggressive than a bigger dog

Yeah.  And I've met some pretty awesome pit bulls.



I really dislike breed specific legislation/rules.  Around here it's hard to find housing if you have a pitbull or a Rottweiler.

dat - Posted - 05/17/2012:  09:33:21



even the pit bulls I trust more than the little ankle biters that sneak up behind you,  I've been around a lot of different breed of dogs and all of them can or will bite, then again all of them could be the sweetest dogs

DeanT - Posted - 05/17/2012:  10:30:28


A greyhound would have to get off the couch to bite someone

dat - Posted - 05/17/2012:  10:55:02



about like a lab, you'll have to open it's mouth  and stick your hand in then squeeze their jaws togeather to get bitten by one normally

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/17/2012:  13:23:02


There's a dog book I like that splits up things like guard dog ability and watch dog ability, because the author feels like a dog can be a good watch dog (ie: barking to alert you that someone is nearby) without being a good guard dog (ie: trained to attack an intruder).

I don't remember exactly how he phrased it but he was describing bulldogs and said something like, "If you can motivate them to get off the couch and go after someone, once they grab hold they won't let go."

I wish I could remember the exact phrase because it was really funny.

He also was extremely negative about all the "teacup" dogs. "If you want something that small, get a hamster."

 THAT IS FUNNY

DeanT - Posted - 05/17/2012:  15:46:12


I held a t-cup yorkie a few weeks ago. I couldn’t help but wonder how a brain even fit in that little head.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/17/2012:  16:25:35



With Toby we have to worry about him licking someone to death! Niffer is right though, the insurance companies are worried about having to pay an enormous claim if your dog disfigures someone.



They're also worried about trampolines and swimming pools. I figure they ought to worry about me going nuts over all the questions they ask.

DeanT - Posted - 05/17/2012:  16:47:55


I remember standing on the hump in the car so I could see out the front window. It didn’t cost extra insurance to do that. I wan’t to go back to 1960 and never come back.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/17/2012:  16:50:01



I used to like to lie on my back on the shelf behind the backseat and look at the world go by through the rear window. You would get arrested if you let you kid do that today.

DeanT - Posted - 05/17/2012:  19:45:29


YEP!!! And riding in the back of a pick-up...waving at the cop, because he was one of your dad’s friends. And he waved back.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/18/2012:  04:13:03



Sitting on Dad's lap and steering the car. I remember Lyman Hill the police chief waving to us as we went by.

those were great days,     I used to ride around with my nephew standing in the seat next to me, he remembered that and talked about it at his wedding.  he barley missed the car seat law.    riding in the back of a truck down the highway was great, untill it started raining

DeanT - Posted - 05/18/2012:  07:52:23


I’m surprised they haven’t put seat belts on kids swings at the school. Heck, my stupid city banned dodge ball in gym class. I loved dodge ball... those little suckers could sure sting!

anybody play golf?




Testicle Therapy: Two women were playing golf. One teed off and




watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a foursome




of men playing the next hole. The ball hit one of the men. He immediately




clasped his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and




proceeded to roll around in agony. The woman rushed down to the man, and




immediately began to apologize. "Please allow me to help. I'm a Physical Therapist




and I know I could relieve your pain if you'd allow me," she told him.




"Oh, no, I'll be all right. I'll be fine in a few minutes,"




the man replied. He was in obvious agony, lying in the fetal position,




still clasping his hands there at his groin. At her persistence, however,




he finally allowed her to help. She gently took his hands away and




laid them to the side, loosened his pants and put her hands inside.




She administered tender and artful massage for several long moments




and asked, "How does that feel?"




"Feels WONDERFUL, " he replied " but I still think my thumb's broken. "

I was golfing with friends, and one of the guys had his beer knocked out of his hand by an errant golf ball...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/21/2012:  09:25:49



I've never taken the game up. I have too many hobbies already. I do like watching it on TV though.

dat - Posted - 05/21/2012:  09:37:41



I never have gotten into the game, I have played about 3 or 4 times,  not serious though.   once we got within 10 or 15 feet of the hole, we called it close enough.  we tried to not hold everybody else up and let them play through. 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/21/2012:  09:40:45



I don't even know if I could swing a club with all the shoulder surgery I've had.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/21/2012:  09:43:25


Back when I was in high school and my younger sister was in grade school, she went to a local elementary school on the first day of spring break to fly a kite (she loved flying her kites) and another neighborhood kid was hitting golf balls there and one of them hit her in the head and she ended up in the hospital with a concussion. Had a beaut of a black eye, too, that was mostly healed by the time she got back to school. So it pretty much ruined her break but she didn't get any sympathy from her friends.

I don't think she flies kites anymore.

She was in a car accident this weekend. Got banged up but mostly she's bruised. Her car is totalled, though.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/21/2012:  09:50:32



Sometimes the real hurting doesn't set in for a few days.I hope she feels better quickly.

dat - Posted - 05/21/2012:  10:05:07



hope she is doing ok, hate to hear about that, a car can be replaced, glad she wasn't hurt bad

DeanT - Posted - 05/21/2012:  11:10:45


Dang... glad she’s ok!

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/21/2012:  13:56:42


She said yesterday she was so sore she didn't want to move at all and the cats didn't understand why she didn't want them walking on her.

I remember when I had a horse fall on me, I got up and walked away from that accident but the next day I hurt like hell and could barely move. I suspect that's what she's feeling like right now.

dat - Posted - 05/21/2012:  14:20:00



I've always heard that the 2nd and 3rd days after you feel more of the hurt

DeanT - Posted - 05/21/2012:  16:14:26


My sister’s horse broke my ankle. Well... ok, I did it... by not hanging on!

OM45GE - Posted - 05/22/2012:  04:11:49



It's not the fall that hurts. It's the sudden stop at the end.

DeanT - Posted - 05/22/2012:  08:06:17


in my case, it was the horse stepping on me after the sudden stop...

dat - Posted - 05/22/2012:  08:21:13



THAT COULD RUIN A DAY

DeanT - Posted - 05/22/2012:  09:22:26


especially out 5 miles or so from home. Long ride home!

dat - Posted - 05/22/2012:  09:43:59



I guess you could say  "that's what memories are made of"    I think it's better to go out and do stuff even if it doesn't turn out well than to sit around and do nothing

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/22/2012:  09:52:26


The day my horse fell on me was a bad day for it to happen. It was 4H show week, so the woman who owned the barn was at the show and not likely to be back until after 10pm. And I was supposed to be working that evening, so my parents wouldn't have noticed I was missing until late. And no one would have noticed at work because they were all at the show, too.

I was lucky. I got up and caught my horse and then caught her again when she ran off when I was trying to take her tack off. Then I started driving home and my car broke down. I knocked on this woman's door and burst into tears when I asked to borrow her phone.

Long day.

DeanT - Posted - 05/22/2012:  10:33:34


That was a long day! I’ve had days like that, but that was in basic training...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/22/2012:  12:19:51



I do physician and executive recruiting for a big biopharmaceutical company. One of my candidates had about a year gap in her work history. When I asked what happened she told she had been driving across country to a new job. She was sightseeing in North Dakota and her jeep fell down a steep hillside when the roadside collapsed.  She broke her leg, an arm and some ribs. Nobody knew she was out there. She managed to crawl up the hillside over the course of two days and lay on the side of the road for another day before a rancher happened along and found her.



She had newspaper clippings of the story. That was a long several days even before she spent a year in rehab.



 

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/22/2012:  14:43:48


Wow.

One of the things that scares me about living alone is what would happen if I fell at home, especially on a weekend.

Probably the biggest influence on me and my riding and knowledge of horses was a woman named Deb Ellis. She had an undiagnosed heart condition and died one day in her shower. I don't know how long it was before someone found her.

Used to creep me out when I lived down in Virginia that my creepy landlord might be the one to find me in that situation.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/22/2012:  15:15:01



Do you have a creepy landlord now?
