As a follow up to this post, I went to see the same client again today, this time in full suited glory and armed with the patented Pupster Power-Point Presentation.
I’ve been practicing my sales pitch and tweaking the slide show for the last 2 weeks. I think I nailed it, I’ll know by the end of the week if it’s Gravy Train or Kennel Ration for the next 18-24 months.
Youngest Pup is just out of frame; I’m leaning over to assist his attempt at giving me bunny ears.

I usually put up my Christmas decorations the weekend after Thanksgiving, and today was a perfect day for it. Last year my icicle lights gave me some trouble with burned out bulbs, so I decided to replace them with new.
I went to my local hardware store, and bought 6 strings of 150 lights, the same amount I used last year. Of course I realized after installing 3 strings, I would need at least one more.
When I went back to the hardware store, the shelves were empty of white icicle lights, all that remained were blue or multicolored. I asked a clerk if he would check for more in the back, but while he was writing down the item number (and not looking very hopeful), a Christmas miracle happened.
Bruce, the Christmas angel, came around the corner pushing a dolly with 3 cases of white icicle lights. Great moments in great timing. I told Bruce he saved Christmas, and I thought I heard a little bell ringing in the background. Attaboy, Bruce.

I took the pupster boys trick-or-treating this year, normally I stay home on the porch with a bottle of whiskey, night vision goggles, an assault rifle, and some Reece’s Pieces to take the edge off.
The last of the candy was consumed after Thanksgiving Dinner. I guess I can take down the Halloween decorations now.
*UPDATE* Mrs. Pupster objects to posting images of the Pupster Boys…photo has been edited to protect the innocent.
