We also had Invisible Fence installed for our dogs; they're learning how to use it now. Our oldest dog, Banjo, is having problems. He hates it, and gets confused easily. The middle dog is very smart and is getting it well. The youngest dog is stupid, but it's amazing what those shocks can do to make you "get it." :-) This summer we'll have a much nicer yard to enjoy, with the dogs essentially free to roam, and a nice-looking hill.

  • There's two guys outside now shoveling a huge truckload of mulch into wheelbarrows to put on the hill. Man, I am sometimes glad I get to sit on my butt for a living. :-)
    • I oftentimes have the opposite thought of "man, I'd like to go back to more manual labor." Usually this occurs after buying new pants or playing soccer with the kids.

      And sometimes when debugging...
