Some of you who have seen my rantings, have brought it to my attention that I tend to be a wee bit “cranky”. Go figure. Every once in a while I come across someone who’s done something to merit a special “shout out” from me for being “Crankier Than Dave”.

This inaugural “shout out” goes to none other than my lovely wife Vicki who was indeed, “Crankier Than Dave”.

Vicki was tending to the flower gardens around our home when a woman and her dog came strolling down the sidewalk. The woman watched as her pooch wandered into our yard and pooped. The two merrily walked off leaving the steaming pile of dog poop where it was deposited.

Vicki seeing this, went into the house and grabbed a zip lock bag. After picking up the pile of dog poop she began chasing the woman and her dog down the street yelling… “Excuse Me! Excuse Me! You forgot something!”

Well, nearly a block later, Vicki caught up with the woman and promptly handed her the bag full of her dogs’ poop, turned around, and marched on home. Not able to stop myself from giggling about the whole thing got me “the look” as if I was the one who pooped in the yard!

Hey Vicki! This special “shout out” is for you, for demonstrating that you were indeed “Crankier Than Dave”. Congratulations!

    Poop in my front yard and leave it there and you’ll likely discover those “issues” first hand! 🙂

    LOL! We have 3 dogs of our own and a 4th one when one of Jenny’s pups comes over for “play day”. Plenty of poop to go around.

    Dogdoo.com is pure genius… who ever thought that one up deserves a nobel prize… seriously!

    Gotta say, i haven’t laughed so hard since watching the trailer for the new japanese game show that whacks you in the knackers if you lose…

    They oughtta have a model that spontaneously combusts upon opening… lol… just what is the world coming to?

    As for your cranky wife, i have a special place in my heart for her after that performance… and i will tell you why.

    My own girl friend lives in a town house complex, and one of the strata councel members has a hate on for me. Now realize, this woman has never even met me…

    Anyway, to get back at her, my girl friend has her two kids take turns placing a paper bag full of dog turds at her front door step and lighting the bag on fire then ringing her bell… lol.

    Some peoples children…. lol

    The genius of today. I laughed so hard that I was left shaking like a shi***g dog.

    If I could afford it I would send one to all my enemies. :}

    Dave your wife is quite right. Where’s the chocolates, wine and sweet music. After all she has to put up with Cranky on a daily basis !!!!!!
