Free Vet Care In Spokane,WA – Truly Inspiring

What an amazing act of kindness on her part because you know, animals don’t have a choice in this economy, they don’t have any options but to be at the mercy of their owners. I applaud both the vet AND the pet owners for being committed to getting their animals the proper healthcare. I want to find out what Vet Clinic Dr. Tucker runs so I can post a link, does anyone know? 

Doctor Cathy Tucker spends her Wednesday’s at the Mission Free Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Tucker and four volunteers look over pets in the one-room clinic, providing care for pet owners who can’t always afford it.

“It’s close quarters but it works,” said Dr. Tucker.

They don’t have much to work with but every week, they manage to squeeze in 15 patients. Pet owners wait anxiously outside hoping to get an appointment.

“We got here an hour-and-a-half early and they were already lined up,” said one customer who identified himself as “David”.

The Mission Free Veterinary Clinic offers basic vaccinations, neutering of male cats, and treatment of minor infections and wounds.

“This clinic is very important because she helps you for a very low cost or for free,” said Penny Chenoweth about Dr. Tucker and the clinic.

Watch the video here, and here is yet another video.

I Need To Get My Roots Done, Can You Spot Me?

Blondes may have more fun, but being a Brunette is cheaper… 
42-15251618

Denver – “I didn’t have any clients Wednesday so I cleaned one of my client’s houses,” said Tatum Taylor, owner of Denver’s Sanuk Studio.  “The gray-haired people still come. They are your bread and butter — they are not going to give it up,” said Taylor. “The ones that were just highlighting for fun cut me out of their budget. They’re doing their own color and they just go longer in between haircuts.”  Color doesn’t come cheap so many salons said their typical blondes were opting for a darker shade so its more low maintenance.

Traffic Update: Panties & Prophets

I just knew today was going to be a rough commute!panties jesus1

Honolulu: 8 boxes of Gap panties fell off a delivery truck and were all over the highway.  What’s the big deal; can we say “I completed all my regift shopping early this year”?

Orlando: Jesus statues are blocking an intersection and causing all kinds of fuss for commuters.  Honestly, the last thing I need when I don’t use my blinker, slow-n-roll, and violate someone else’s right of way is Ceramic Jesus there watching me. 

All that makes me think that I’m just going to call out tomorrow and play hookie!

Honestly, I don’t even know these people, but I was happy to see someone document their potential blackmail material because ‘No Cameras!’ is rule #1 for my Annual Paisley Gala.

If you are looking for something fun to do for the holidays then this is something I highlyrecommend.   Some will have to try hard to find something to wear while others will just blend – IYKWIM…
