My son is away in Istanbul, Budapest and Vienna, leaving the little dears in my care. The double leash my son supplied extends six feet in opposite directions. Using this,I become the object of a truck pull. Or the rack. Then they run laps around me as if I were a May Pole, neatly ensnaring me. One good push and I am down for the kill.
In anticipation of their two week stay, I purchased a combination "wacky walkr" that claims to reduce pulling. It does keep them abreast but that intensifies their ability to drag elderly objects.

It will come as no surprise to anyone but myself that my external hard drive died. The tech said, 'well you have backup for it, right?'
'Back up for my backup? How could I, every damn portal on the computer is filled, where would I plug in another back up?'
'No,' he replied, 'backed up on your computer.' This rapidly devolved into a bad "who's on first?" routine.
It has not been a good day.
