What a relief.


It's nice to know my money worries are over...and this just arrived in time since Piper is, even as we speak, having his testicles removed. And you know how expensive vets can be.

I'm not sure what I love most about this sweepstakes that I just won. I'm trying to decide between the part that says "The face of this document has a colored background on white paper", the part that says "The back of this document contains an artificial watermark" or the bits where they put the word cheque in quotation marks. Though it IS nice to see a business finally using quotation marks more or less appropriately.

I have yet to figure out quite how they get away with it, myself.

Ah, the wonderful snip, snip day. Poor pocketbook!

Oh geeze the neutering... oh the poor pup. It will be fun for you guys to keep him slowed down over the next week and a half or so. We lasted all of three days keeping Maggie slowed down.

Enjoy today, the quietest day to date with him ;)

Sorry Dave - but at least I didn't put up a YouTube of the operation itself, eh? Be thankful for small mercies...

oh my gosh I laughed so hard as I just received the same batch of cheques today :)

The thing that frightens me is that bit about "colored background on white paper"? That's actually a security feature, makes it harder to copy. But then, people would photocopy the checks, and the tellers they tried to use the checks with wouldn't know that the check should have a colored background on white paper, so the security feature was DEFEATED! So they wrote it down, so tellers would know.

Because no one clever enough to photocopy checks also knows how to use white-out. Although, maybe that does actually work...hm...sad... :)

Dude, with all those "checques" you could pay for the testicles (ah the vet bills, I know them well!!), shoes & wheel! :)
