Just a quick FYI

For the time being, if you need to call Todd, you'll have to call my phone, as his now out of commission, until we buy a new one. Side note, anyone have an old Verizon phone we could use so we don't have to buy a new one? It should be an old one that you really don't need back, as it's highly probable that it will one day meet the same fate as it's predecessor, that of Death by Dog Water.

The joys of Two.

Don't ask me what the draw is, but for some reason Oliver finds it fascinating to abscond with random articles (sometimes his own toys, books, shoes, sometimes random household junk, sometimes small electronics, i.e. cell phones, PDAs, PSPs, remote controls, cordless mouses...) and scurry stealthily up to our master bathroom, where the dogs water was safe for a blissful 3 seconds, and make like Michael Phelps. But here's the weird part. He then grabs the little swimmer out and pulls up his shirt and sticks it, dripping wet and cold, on his bare belly.


Yeah. Either that, or sometimes he just sucks the icky disgusting dog-backwash water off.

Oh, and while I'm on the subject, if you're at our house, you might want to leave your valuables in your car. Unless they are waterproof. Or you are looking for an excuse to get a new one...

the joys of two :) check out ebay. You might get a good deal on one there.
Glad to know Todd is still improving.

This is a random comment again form me James who got to your post from CR's blog. Anyhow I once heard that if you put small electronics in the fridge after being emerged in water that it will sometimes fix it as a fridge sucks all the moisture out of things... It worked on my bosses IPod that had fallen into his hot tube 3 months earlier. After a week or so in the fridge it worked again... It’s worth a try.
