As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!
If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.
Little doggie gyro farts.
Last night, the Gyro Man was there in his teensy tiny little kiosk when we went to buy printer ink and paper. Most of the time, especially in cold weather, he's closed by the time I get off work. The bulk of his business in winter comes from lunches, not dinners.
It's warm enough now that he's opening for the dinner crowd now. Last night was his first evening open.
He adores Itzl and Xoco, and came over to to give them a slice of gyro meat.
It's their first gyro meat in months.
They only get a half slice each every 3 - 6 months. Mostly because of the gyro farts.
Lethal gyro farts.
Silent, deadly gyro farts.
In stereo. Stereolfaction? Because two dogs.
There is no picture of the gyro farts because - farts. How do you photograph farts? Even the marvelous new camera (it's not a top-of-the-line, but it is an autofocus Canon) can't photograph farts.
I think I'm glad.
