Happy to recycle my water bottle BUT...

My dog is a sloppy drinker.




That's OK -- Dog slobber doesn't bother recyclers.





Interesting phrase origin of Bible verse "For now we see through a glass, darkly"

The Wife bought a new TV




... and the brightness control doesn't work.

What the heck was that sound last night?

Do you like getting up and getting ready while it is still dark?



No, because I keep bashing into things in the dark, and making sounds.
