Max is clear

Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound.  I had a bit of a problem with my refrigerator this week.  One day I noticed the freezer door was not completely shut and of course my freezer was less than freezing at that time.   Believing I was just delinquent in making sure I shut the door I paid no mind to it till I found it open again the following day.  I really did not think Max was able to reach the top freezer; I figured he had learned his lesson the last time he tried and fell off the ladder. LOL. Anyway, with some experimentation I discovered that when I shut the bottom door the top door would pop open.   I figured the magnetic seal must be going bad and I would just have to remember to shut both doors from now on.  This became tiresome very quickly, so I did some more recon in my freezer and I discovered that there was a half opened carton of Texas Toast and the flap was just brushing against the door.  It was providing just enough pressure against the door to allow it to shut properly but enough spring to force the door to open when the bottom door was shut.  So Max is in the clear…for now.

A sportswriter interviewed a college football coach about his star player. “He’s great on the field,” the writer noted, “but how is he in the classroom?” “He makes straight A’s,”  the coach responded.  “That’s terrific!” “Yes, but I have to admit his B’s are a little slanted.”

A nephew gushed to his uncle after the holidays, “Thanks for the electric guitar. It’s the best present ever.” “Can you play it yet?” his uncle asked. “Oh, I don’t play it,” the boy replied. “Mom gives me a dollar a day not to play it in the afternoon, and Dad gives me $5 a week not to play it at night.”


My sister-in-law had worked as a waitress at an Atlanta restaurant. One day, a large family came in to eat. In accordance with the restaurant’s policy of serving large parties, the tip was automatically added to the bill. After she presented the bill to the father, she heard him bellow, “Gratuity? Who ordered the gratuity? I told you kids that we weren’t going to order dessert!”

That is a wrap.  As always be good, play safe and remember to focus on finding the answer.  

JR and Max
