I need to make a run to the store, huh?

Perhaps Google wanted me to prove I was human. I can show a different proof: it was much easier today with the number lock turned on.
I did not ask for this feature. I do not want this feature. And there is this which was provided by FIU Technology News and Alerts:
We have identified Google Images as a vector for transmitting malware through infected image files. As such, we’ve seen an increase in malware attacks throughout the university.
The Division of Information Technology recommends that you use an alternate source for images. Other sources are Bing and Yahoo! among others.
I had previously received a notice from my Norton Internet Security that it had protected the laptop from an intrusion attempt after I downloaded some images of Morkies from Google. Oops.
Charley's dog is a Maltese/Yorkie cross and she is adorable. Morkie. I just wanted to see more dogs like her and nearly got more than I bargained for.
Thank you, Norton. Google, not so much.

I went in for one item. I came out with that one item and nothing else. Against all logic, I know.
I believe I found a reason, though. On the way home, I glanced at the car's digital temperature readout and yelled it aloud in the quiet car as I was driving along.
A 102 degree temperature at 3 p.m. explains many anomalies.

Her owner (he bought her but he has yet to become her master) had told me she won't accept treats from the hand. He has to scatter a couple around his house so she can get them at her leisure if he offers her any.
I had the three dogs sitting in a semicircle in front of me and only responding to each one's individual name when I called it. Tammie's owner was impressed.
She will now "hush" when pointed to and given the command. She is even beginning to WAIT at the door as the other two dogs do. Tammie's owner is even beginning to remember to say WAIT, himself.
Will wonders never . . .

As the action got close to where I was standing with the three dogs on leashes, a desperate squirrel jumped over the top of the fence landing nearly at our feet. He was dumfounded and so were the dogs. Evidently the bird had done some real damage because he had a difficult time climbing the nearby palm and nearly fell off when he had to negotiate the fronds.
Only Mollie, the spaniel, tried to get to him. He was too traumatized to even chitter at her.
Bet he'll leave that bird's nest alone . . .

Today, I propose a riddle: What does low sodium teriyaki sauce, leftover turkey, leftover stuffing, leftover gravy, niblet corn, tomatoes in onion and green pepper, sauteed onions-celery-mushrooms with mozzarella cheese sprinkled atop amount to?
Ha! Desperation Casserole. I'll let you know if anyone dies as a result of ingestion . . .
