The neighbor dogs have successfully defended themselves from the horrifying monstrosity that is the Push-Reel Mower. They don’t seem bothered by the electric mower, and I’ve seen them ignore other folks’ gasoline machines… Maybe it has something to do with the whirling, spinning blades at the back. Or maybe it makes a high-pitched squeek that drives them insane. In any case, they were following me along the fence line, barking furiously at the wheels of the thing while I was trying to do some back-yard maintenance. Rather than have them die of an apoplexy, I figured the lawn can wait until they’re back indoors.

The Wife Guest Blog

Especially when a similar effect can be achieved with the slightly more time-tested suffix “-O-Rama”.

Spine in a bottle

Just a quick image to share with y’all. I have no idea what’s going on here. It’s a line drawing from a sketch that a doc dropped off.

Personally, I think it’d make more sense if the neck was more bent in part ‘A’ and less bent in part ‘B’, but I’m not the one with the expensive letters after my name…
