Random Tuesday

Things I've learned so far today...

in a pinch you cannot use the telephone as a television remote...no matter how far apart the two are.

you cannot spray expensive perfume on your odorous dog and expect her to smell any different. Even if the perfume and her name are the same. (Amazing Grace).

dishwasher soap does nothing for laundry...do not substitute.


  1. All very useful things to know :)
    had no idea about the phone and remote deal.

  2. My brother fell out the other day when the phone rang and I answered the remote... that doesn't work either.


  3. Oh no, JJ...I'm not sure I even want to know how you came to all of these realizations. But, ummm, thanks for sharing??? BWAHAHAHA!

  4. bounce dryer sheets will make a stinky dog smell better... rub the sheet on the dog :)

  5. HAHA JoJo, thanks for the morning giggle. The TV remote also doesn't work to shut your children up either! Believe me i've tried it!

  6. While putting away towels the other day, a used dryer sheet fluttered to the floor. I picked it up as Fenway walked by. I wiped it across her back and viola...she smelled Mountain Breeze fresh!!


  7. ...and no matter how crazy you think your wife is, you should listen to her when she says dish soap (as in wash by hand) DOES NOT belong in the dishwasher!

    I've done the remote/phone thing more than once. :P

  8. LOLOLOLOLOLOL.. Thanks for the laugh Jojo. I have tried those things myself..LOL. I use febreeze on my dogs.. They look at me like I am stupid, but it does help..LOL.. Esp the one for pet odors.

    Hope all is well your way. We are having a winter storm right now and it's cold out there. Lows below 0. UCK!!!


    God Bless~

  9. Great post. Perfume and dog odour do not go well together. :-)

    Enjoyed my visit and thank you for your comment on my ice fog post.
