In an effort to add some discipline to my easily distracted mind, I am creating this blog to practice writing and photography on a somewhat regular basis. The title comes from a story about my Irish Grandfather. When I was a baby every time he saw me he would ask my mother "Does he still shit in his pants?" It sounds like something I would say about a baby and it makes me laugh every time I think about it. BTW, YOU CAN CLICK ON ANY PICTURE TO SEE IT FULL SIZE.

October 6 Meter Reading
My gas meter is in the far corner of my basement. Because we are rarely home when the meter reader comes around, I have to read the meter and enter the numbers online. Today I got an e-mail from NiCor saying I must have read the meter incorrectly. The numbers I sent them are too big an increase over last month. Imagine that, they warned me I was going to be over billed. They suggested I take a picture and sent it to them.(Probably because they think I'm either too stupid or too blind to read the meter correctly) Since I have to contort my constantly growing fat ass into something resembling the letter S to read the meter, I decided to take a picture of it. I found my mistake right away and e-mailed the picture to NiCor. Just another warning sign that I'm getting closer and closer to a dirt nap.
