Tell Me Thursday #12

1.       If you won the lottery (a big one... I'm talking stupid muchos cash) what would you do with the money?

Not if, but when, I win the lottery I have plans for the money that will benefit you, my loyal readers.  The money will be used to build and run a retirement community for elderly dog trainers.  There will be a compound of cabins...simple dwelling places that have one bedroom, one bathroom, a small living area, and a kitchenette.  Each cabin will have a front porch.  There will be an indoor/outdoor kennel off of the bathroom.  There will be a special cabin for Karen that has extra facilities for breeding...a honeymoon suite for the actual breeding, a welping room for the birth, and posh puppy indoor/outdoor facilities.   There will be a central dining facility where we will all gather for the meals, prepared by a fabulous chef.  There will be a large training facility with an area for obedience rings and agility courses that has flooring suitable for elderly dogs and people.  And of course plenty of walking trails and fields/woods to play in.

2.       After winning the lottery would you work a day job? If so, what would you do? 

I would continue working my day job as a computer programmer.  How lucky are we to live in a time when we can make enough money to pay entry fees by sitting at a computer all day, writing amusing programs, and eating snacks.  I love my job.

3.       Do you have any auxiliary dogs? Auxiliary dogs are dogs that are not essential to your main purpose (usually tiny, but not always). If you don't have an auxiliary dog what might you choose?

Hmm.  Does Norton count as an auxiliary dog?  He never Qs in utility.  He spends most of his time in the bedroom deep in thought about how to frustrate my every training attempt.  

Does Dick count as an auxiliary dog?  He is less trainable than Norton, but he does bring me food.  Which I appreciate because otherwise I would die of starvation.

4.       Do you have a favorite crock pot recipe (or other recipe) you can share?

Tortilla soup. 
Get a package of boneless chicken thighs. 
Put them in the crockpot. 
Wash your hands.  Wash them again. Ewwww. 
Put a can of tomatos in the crockpot.
Put a can of beans in the crockpot.
Put a jar of salsa in the crockpot.
Put a can of corn in the crockpot.
Cook on low for 10 days (maybe this should be 10 hours).
Invite me over.
Eat with tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream.


  1. This sounds wonderful!!! I usually make mine with ground beef, this will be a nice change!

  2. Is Dick the husband? I always counted my husband as an auxiliary dog. Maybe that's why he's the exhusband tho. Maybe I wouldn't recommend that, not if you like yours. lol!

    That recipe looks lovely. Do you not add any other liquid to it? And does it turn out soupy or stewy?
