Dad's making steady improvement. He requested a Checker's hot dog for supper which I gladly provided. Hopefully, we're still on a path for him to go home sometime this week.
My toilet tank in my downstairs bathroom is cracked. The good news is that it didn't crack completely and flood my downstairs. The other good news is that I have a home warranty, so it'll only cost $60 to get it fixed.
The bad news is that I have a home warranty, so the process to get anything done is a little more complicated than not having a home warranty. However, I had the guy who came out today to check out the cracked crapper shut the water off to the toilet so that even if the tank cracks completely, I won't have water everywhere.
When I was going back to work after meeting with the plumber, I saw a stray dog wandering down Calder Avenue a few blocks from my house. There's a leash law in Beaumont, so when a dog is out wandering around it means that somebody is missing a dog.
The unusual thing about this particular dog was that it was in complete compliance with the law...it still had its leash around its neck. He also looked perfectly happy to be out and about without whoever was supposed to be on the other end of the leash. He had a big silly dog grin on his face as he trotted down the street.
I considered turning around to see if he would get in my car so I could check his tags or something, but then I decided that if I picked him up, I might interfere with whatever dog plan he had and really get him confused and lost.
Godspeed, Mr. Doggy. I hope you found whatever you were looking for.
