Good news from DR DANISE.

DR RLP - Don is still selling guns, but has stopped advertising on television except VERY late at night now and then.  When one of his clerks gets shot, he just closes that store and opens another one across the street.

I'm totally zonked.  It's really hot here, in the nineties.  I did get a package, so I went and picked that up.

I also had an interesting e-mail re The Brain, and we'll see where that all leads.

I misread the Anthony Quinn thing  - blame it on Jose or Rio or my Youth or the Bossa Nova, but don't blame me.

Has anyone heard Jamie Cullum's version of "Blame It On My Youth"?\

I was surpised to find that Oscar Levant was the co-writer. I never thought of him as a songwriter, but a pianist and famous neurotic wit.

News to me, DR EDISAURUS.

I think MR BK and DR CP should be a team on TAR.

I have found it is very easy for animals to learn to use pet doors. We have two neighborhood cats that just walk right in and make themselves at home.

One night when my DH was out of town, I heard a noise in the kitchen. I went in and saw a round furry animal that I thought was a dog, with his face in a bowl of dry cat food, chomping away.

I didn't want to scare it so I snuck into the bedroom and got my glasses, came back and discovered it was a HUGE raccoon.

It turned out it was a female, very pregnant raccoon who could barely fit through the cat door. She was just as afraid of me as I was of her and she had a hard time getting back out of the door.

After a month or so, she returned and started bring her baby raccoons in with her. It was cute until the first morning I stepped in a puddle of raccoon pee.

We would always know when they were in the kitchen because we could hear their nails clinking against the cat dishes as they washed the dry cat food to moisten it.

I learned later that raccoons can spread rabies through their saliva, and since they were sharing the water bowl with my ancient cat, that was the end of their nocturnal visits.

Before I took to locking the door, through, they pulled off some impressing feats, like dragg a whole bag of Science Diet almost all the way out the cat door. (When they couldn't complete their task they just ate the food out of the bag, like a feedbag!)

I've only ever seen one racoon - in Toronto.  Cute.

BTW = For those that remember - DiT in well and happy.

Of course I live on a continent that is Rabies free.

(I wrote in continent first).

Did anyone else used to smoosh up a slice of Wonder Bread into a big ball?

I only used be able to do it with bread borrowed from friend's sandwiches, as my mother wouldn't allow the stuff in the house.

Beleive it or not, my DH worked on a film about this very thing, called THE BREAD SQUEEZER, made by some friends of ours who have since moved it NY. (We got to see them when we were there last month.)

You can see lots of squeezing going on:

The continent is not dementia free.  I put my trousers (the draw string casual type) on backwards this morning. I didn't realise until I looked for my handkerchief. At least it was before I left the house.

MMMM  DrawString.  Doesn't he post here?

My father was a Baker.  I know nothing about bread squeezing or bride squeezing.

My sister wore her hair plaited when she was a youngster. I remember braid squeezing.

Oh, my God! Maybe my experience wasn't so unusual. (the things one learns on HHW!) I'd NEVER mess with a raccoon! Those guys are aggressive! (At least the ones I've encountered.)

It's probably too much of a squeeze to mention I like David Lean's film. "This Happy Bread".

I can think of only two maother/daughter teams (no counting any on the family edition.)  I think DRs Laura and Sandra would make a good team.

For the relationship team, I would pick DRs Tpunk and Rodzinski.  I would have picked Ann and Jed because of their seniority here, but they're getting married this week and I think TAR could be a potentially disasterous way to spend a honeymoon.

If I had my own pick for a teammate, I would choose DR CillaLiz for her brains and stamania and good company.  But I think I would drive her crazy because--typical guy--I would hate to stop to ask for directions anywhere ("JUST READ ME THE DIRECTIONS ON THE MAP!!!!")

So who says you would be driving?   ;D

Of course, it was the best way to eat it....after I ripped off the crust and threw it away
