The Flea Battle

It is flea season here now, and we are dealing with Apollyon's little friends. It has been more difficult than I imagined. She has been on Revolution (inhibits fleas' muscle function)monthly since she was a kitten. And still got fleas. So now we have escalated to the point where she is wearing a flea collar (muscle inhibitor again), has jumped a weight class with the Revolution, and has added Program (a chitin synthesis inhibitor). I bathed her for the first time with Anti- flea shampoo (see photo), and we are using "flea bombs" that fumigate the apartment. WE WILL NOT LET THE LITTLE BASTARDS WIN!!!
Poor kitty!

Accident Prone

This weekend Barb & I were test subjects for a first responder training course.  We basically had to fake injuries and let the class decide how we would be treated.  So over the weekend I:
  • got strapped to a spine board several times
  • facial burns lighting a BBQ
  • crashed my bicycle into a car
  • got shot with a gun in a mall parking lot
  • got hit over the head with a pool cue in a bar fight
  • fell down the stairs drunk
  • got paralyzed by a falling cylinder at work
  • got kicked in the kneecap by a horse.

    It was kind fun pretending to be hurt.  The easiest one was the bar fight because I was unconscious. Plus, I made $60.

    In the real world I Barb & I went to the Mother's Day run & walk.  I ran the 8km in 1:02:47.  Barb did the walk.  I didn't really train much for it and now I hurt.  The race course was here (Opens Google Earth)
