Near the Corner of Bedford and Main

...No one uses hindsight when cleaning up after their dog, though we all might be better off if we did

...Walt rinsed his eyes first and then let the cold water run over what was left of his hair. "One of the few advantages of going bald," explained Walt, "it's easier to get stuff off your head."

...Watching a dog drop stones into a fish pond and try to catch the resulting splash in his mouth is entertaining at first, but not particularly helpful to the local fish population.

...Cradling his mouth, spitting blood, and holding a tooth in his hand, the next words uttered were, "Don't tell your mother." As if she would not notice this bloody mess walking in the house.

..."Obviously Mother Nature feels I haven't truly apologized for electrocuting my dog."

..."Where's the best place for ribs?"

"You want Mostly Franks, and no, they don't sell hot dogs."

Words of Wisdom and Observations

...When you consider all the flammable items inside a garage station service bay the boys were darn lucky to escape with just a pair of missing eyebrows.

..."Tofu just sits there, like a twelve year old boy at his first school dance."

...When you melt your shoes because they're too close to the fire and your feet don't know about it, it's time for bed.

...Jake was unquestionably Walt's dog, but even a dog learns to keep his distance when Walt is engaged in home repair.

...Word of a good-looking, knock-out, unmarried Latin dentist from out of town travels just shy of light speed.

...But friendship in males is similar to the experience of childbirth: You eventually forget the pain and often go back for more.

"They're both really good books."
