We purchased so…

Current Date Feb 25 2015:

Followers, if there are any of you left, will know it has been some time since I’ve posted anything on these, or any pages.  I think about writing constantly.  Even with a full life and many changes I struggle to find anything to write about.  And when I do think something is interesting to write about I can’t make it interesting in my head.  So today for the first time in forever I took a look at this blog.  I found the entry below that has been sitting as a draft for three years.  The biggest change since this post is that Sequoia our beautiful Husky has passed away and is greatly missed.  We do have a new dog now who may just make an appearance in this blog, provided I can figure out how to write again.  Until then, I hope you enjoy this trip back three years.  And yes I am checking the flux capacitors.

3 Years ago:

We purchased some new living room seating.  One of which is a massive two seat recliner. The seats recline at the touch of a button. I was worried about having to stand up if there should be a power failure.  Turns out the designer already though about such an event as there is a battery backup.  But what happens if you are cheap and don’t want to spend 8 dollars worth of batteries?  Besides we live in the woods in the middle of almost nowhere what are the chances of a power failure?

The other day I did learn how we would get our lazy butts out of the chair in case there should be a full power and battery outage event.   My wife was on her side of the recliner playing a video game on the computer, half asleep with three of the cats piled on top of her.  I’m on my side, playing a computer game on the ole’ Xbox, half asleep with two cats zoned out on my lap.   The dog is outside on her lunge line.  Suddenly peace is disturbed by dogs growling.  Pressing the button on the chair would take too much time.  I tossed the Xbox controller and just leaped off the end of the recliner which remained in its upright position, my wife was hot on my heels.

When I stepped outside Sequoia was nose to nose with a German shepherd and no, not a guy with a heavy accent herding sheep but the four legged dog.  I’ve got to give the shepherd credit, he stayed just out of reach of Sequoia they could touch noses but that was it.  The dog took one look at me and headed for home.

What is the moral of the story?  We don’t need no stinkin’ batteries. A shot of adrenalin will work miracles in just about any situation.
