This morning, our first-floor smoke alarm started chirping.

Mrs. AOW can't reach it to replace the battery. The one neighbor who used to help us out with these things has moved away.

She phoned her cousin-in-law, but he won't be able to get here for hours.

I guess I'll be sleeping on my one good ear so that I can't hear the damn thing making racket. If I sleep on my one good ear and snore like crazy, I'll be able to get some rest. I need some rest! PT wore me out yesterday.

Cats and baths

Cameo watched this video. Cameo does not approve this video.

Our cats HATE baths.

But when I was a kid, our cats loved swimming in our backyard pool. Go figure!

Wheelchair road rage

This guy has issues:
A disabled man used his 4mph electric wheelchair to smash up a Transit van because two workmen had parked it outside his house, a court heard.

Kurt Baron, 40, caused £2,000 of damage to the vehicle's bodywork and narrowly missed a mother pushing a pram, forcing her and the baby into the road.

He also deliberately crashed into barriers round a manhole where the two Electricity North West engineers were working before threatening them with a claw hammer, Burnley Crown Court heard.

Baron, who is wheelchair bound after breaking his back in a fall from a tree, admitted possessing an offensive weapon and criminal damage, but avoided jail.

The prosecution said his wheelchair rampage happened on October 30 last year after he had a row with a blind friend in his house in Nelson, Lancashire.
He takes out his rage on himself too:
The court heard Baron had stabbed himself in the leg with a 12 inch knife while in his house and he told the court 'Over the last five months, a lot has changed. All I want is a normal life.'
Glad that I'm a mellow guy and not like Kurt Baron!

Of course, if I had tantrums, Mrs. AOW would put me in my place. You don't want to know how - and neither do I.

Time for humor

From The Ultimate Bathroom Joke Book:
Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home, and when he grows up, he'll never be able to merge the car into the highway traffic.

The problem with trouble-shooting is that trouble shoots back.

A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

I always cook with wine. Sometimes I even put some in the food.

If it's the psychic network, why do they need a phone number?
