Just when I think my life is about as strange as it can manifest, I get an email from my daughter today about her dog, Simon. Since I couldn't add to the retelling, I just pasted the contents. BTW, Bryan is her husband.

"Did I tell you that Simon can get on top of our fridge? We came home one night and he had eaten the cat food up there. Couple days later we found two empty bags that used to contain frozen veggies. Apparently he learned how to open the freezer. Bry came home several days later and the freezer was still open and the dogs had just finished sharing frozen wings. Soooo.....he's a crap head (the dog). Anyway, love ya, talk to you later."

"p.s. Almost forgot---the oven door was open on Friday. He bakes now :)"
