Cats & Dogs






Most people are either cat people or dog people, not often both. When Ira moved to Canada we lived in a village and I had a dog ( Buddy, my Jack Russell Terrier ). I started to feed a cat that was a stray, well by the time we left that house and moved to Ontario I was feeding about 15 stray cats. I digress, when Ira moved to Canada she did not like cats or dogs, after about 6 months Ira went from not wanting to give the cats table scraps to buying food for them at the grocery store. I would say Ira is both a cat and dog person now.


 



My Daughter Amy who is definitely cat cat person, named every stray cat that dropped by to eat. I think some cats just dropped by to get a name.





I love all animals, and enjoy sitting and having a cat or dog around. I let Buddy ( our Dog ) sleep at my feet. Ira tells him to get down and he comes to me to hide under the blankets, he is like a furry foot warmer.





Our youngest is a dog person when she was little we gave Buddy ( our dog ) some left over Japanese food, ( our youngest daughter loves baby corns ), to our surprise we found buddy and her sitting side by side eating these left overs. Sharing 50/50, well She got the baby corns and he got the rest !

Parasol Umbrella and NCIS

I watch my wife crochet and I fall asleep, I go with her to buy yarn and I want to fall asleep. I am not a crochet person, but I am truly amazed by the quality and expertise she employs to make her parasols.

Being a guy, I do not even use an umbrella, and the thought of an umbrella looking thing made of fabric that leaks when it rains, just baffles me. I know women like to look pretty and fancy, so I guess I get it. Until Ira made one and then I thought that this looks so cool, not that you would see me using one, well I might if it had blue tooth and a Calgary Flames or Miami Dolphin logo.


Each handmade crocheted parasol is made of lace, oooh sounds sexy already, okay when the wife mentions lace, everything before it was blah blah like Charlie Browns teacher, but after it is as clear as kindergarten teacher reading about some baby duck crossing the street.

My Wife and I watch NCIS and Abby often has a black parasol, which makes Ira like her even more. I hear Abby is so cool, did you see that parasol ? When me and a few friends are watching TV and some hot babe is on TV, the guys say wow did you see her ? I fear my response will be no I missed her, was she holding a parasol ?

 Happy Feet !


I remember when the kids were young they were so cute. I also remember paying my oldest who was about 2 years old at the time to check her baby brother diaper for pooh. She would say no daddy its empty or Eww Daddy come quick. Once she got older no chance of her checking the new babies diaper.

With all that said, Ira makes incredible animal hats for all ages, check out her website...

If you can work with your spouse you can do anything !

I am currently making a website http://www.irarott.com for my wonderful wife.  I appreciated her and all the works she does, but some how no matter how hard I try,  when she says I don’t like that redo that page or by the way here is 2 different size images to fit nicely on this page or nah I like it better before ( meaning the way I originally had it was best ).  My eye begins to twitch, and I think meat cleaver or chainsaw, then she flash a smile and say thank you for all your work and I am like a school boy, happy and giddy and all I can think about is how much I love her. With all that said you have to check out the website  http://www.irarott.com
From the Website you can follow her Blog, Twitter and Facebook updates as well as her 3 Etsy shops.
Thank you to my wife for putting up with my unique sense of humor and my bizarre comments I make in public to complete strangers. Hey , if I think it I say it.

Happy Valentines day ! I even found a nice

My Dad

I love my father as all sons should, I respect him and I think he is a good man. With that said now I have to write a few humorous stories at his expense.  Since he has gotten a hearing aide,  I found out he is a lot like a light bulb after 60 whats its just a waste of energy !
My Father is a caring person, so much so on his wedding day driving back to my grandfather house he spotted a mother skunk and her babies.  Having decided that baby skunks don’t spray, he got out of his car and proceed to try to collect this cute little skunk for his newly wed bride. What a kind generous and yet misinformed gifted.  As My grandfather knows oh so well baby skunks can spray. My father arrive at my grandfather house in his tuxedo smelling of skunk, by the way the skunk got away :)

They way my brain works



Went to pay for a few things at the store, I was told stuff my card in the bottom of the debt machine, I didnt know the debt machine was into that.


Have you ever bought gas and when you go into pay the guy inside say do you have gas ?  I  do  not know how to respond, no just indigestion  or pull my finger and find out !

I heard on the news that Pluto and Neptune’s orbit cross every few  hundred thousand years, which made me think, eventually Pluto is going to shove Neptune into Uranus.

Went to the doctor the other day, I read a sign ” If you cough wash your hand and wear a mask” Which led me to think, last time I was in a doctors office and coughed he wore the mask and washed his hands.

Hello Hello Hello , it is empty here thats why there is an echo

Well this is my first post, everyone want their first post to be awesome. Hopefully I can get a few followers, if not it will be like talking to myself and I have never been a big fan of that.
I will be talking about sports, humor, random stuff I think, what happened to me, my dog, oh and of course http://www.irarott.com  my wonderful wife’s web site.
