His and Her Choices

By
Home Inspector with Charles Buell Inspections Inc.

Life is full of choices,

Don’t you think?

 

Some are easy,

Some not so easy.

 

Sometimes we wish we had chosen more wisely,

Other times we surprise ourselves how correct we ended up being.

 

Some argue that choosing may be the only power we really have.

Others argue that we have no choice.

 

Sometimes other people think they know what is best for us,

As if they don’t have enough choices to make of their own;

And of course we “wonder” about the half baked choices they make.

 

It is sad to see people let choices slip them by,

But even that is a choice.

Isn't it?

 

We move from decision to decision,

Hopefully learning,

But often we end up going down the same tunnel,

Expecting the cheese that someone else has eaten long ago.

 

Other times,

Choices are much clearer cut.

Hope it's not a gas fire. LOL  I love the photo, I though we were going to be in closets and you fooled me for sure.

Are those the separate bathroom arrangements for girl dogs and boy dogs?

Richie so true

Fred, I can just see the fire person dealing with this :)

Tammy, I am always taking people down the less trod path :)

Nicole, that is the norm isn't it?  Oh, you mean real dogs?

Don, good question---do we need a third choice?

Hi Charles - Funny, but my dogs can't read and they're mostly color blind. And isn't that a fire code violation?

Charles- Will cities now have to supply both hydrants?   I'm sure someone will legislate that.

Charles,  You see some interesting things in your travels.  This is a good one.  I wonder if the dogs know the difference.....

It's so refreshing when I make a decision rather quickly and don't second think it. Rare, but refreshing!

Dick, a fire code violation because of the colors no doubt :)

Kathy, of course---not sure what to do about any other possible choices though

Belinda, doubtful.

As a side note these hydrants are not functional and are installed outside a veterinarian's office

Sharon, I hear you there---sometimes those gut reactions are sound

William, a good point indeed

I can see where "he" can use the blue one, but how does "she" use the pink one?

Nice use of the hydrants to protect the gas meter.
