Just got a call with an automated "Goodbye". A rattling way to start the morning.

Neighbor's dog just ran across the street and stared down my dog. Those electric fence collars work about 90% of the time. I had to wave down cars to slow down so they didn't hit the dog. Finally got them to stay in their yard after yelling like a lunatic.

Getting close to my 2nd battery replacement on my iphone 6s. Might call it quits after that. Or not, we will see.
