Aye Panchito!



1. Panchito, my little Chihuahua dog, broke my Canon camera. I had the camera on top of the sofa next to my computer, the sofa where I keep an afghan blanket one of my LJ friends gave me as a gift. I didn’t know that Panchito was cuddled inside of it. When he jumped off the sofa, his little leg caught the strap of the camera, and it fell hard on the floor. Poor little thing, the bang scared him half to death. I was devestated, yet grateful that he wasn’t injured.

I had some really nice pictures that I hadn’t downloaded yet, pictures I had recently taken from an airplane in route to California. No problem, because one of my brother’s that lives in CA. gave me his which is identical to the one Panchito broke. I now have those wonderful pictures, and will share them soon.

2. This same brother is now living with me, because he lost his job and his CA. home. Now, there are 4 of us to make payments on that investment home in Oceanside, CA. It’s getting harder and harder to make those monthly payments. We only hope that the family that’s renting it will be able to keep their jobs.

This brother that’s now living with me (temporary) is not only devastated by the loss of his job and home, but by the fact that his girlfriend who has been living with him for about 2 years, left him. I find it disgusting how she stuck by him in the good times, but decided to haul ass during these hard times. BITCH! She’s been calling him wanting to get back together. I have been pounding it in my brother’s head to have some pride and not to accept the bitch back. I seriously feel he’s listening to me. He better, or else I will disown him for sure, because not only do I DEMAND loyalty, but loyalty for all my brothers!!

I have pics of all my 10 dogs, and will be showing them off when I complete my new romantic domain. Oh, and I'll have all my 20 somthing cats, also! :o)

Pachchito only had the scare of his life with the loud bang the camera made. Had the camera fallen on him, he would have been seriously enjured.

She chose the worst time to leave him. He better not take her back.

Well, look at the bright side, at least he discovered her true colors before the relationship took on a more serious role.

I don't know if it's just me, but it seem like many girls have these fantasy expectations or ideals where tough times don't happen to successful people. A let-me-leave-him-before-I-go-down-with-him mentality. It's a selfish mentality.

And really, a guy who is going through a financial crisis isn't going down unless he has given up. But most of the time, especially today, the average guy was most likely dealt a bad hand and he ended up taking on more risk than he expected, and it all back fired when the economy lost momentum. The average American simply doesn't understand the monetary system well enough to have seen these times coming. Even some of the most wealthiest people have lost a big chunk of their wealth. They're just lucky enough to have that financial cushion to bounce back quicker. But everyone right now is struggling unless you're one of the culprits behind this economical stagnation.

I wish you and your brother the best.

And it's probablly a good thing the flash didn't go off on the camera or your dog might have gotten a heart attack.

Thank you for wishing my brother well.

Thank goodness they never married and had a child. He is heartbroken, but I tell him he’ll eventually get over it. Anyway, she should be the least of his worries. He was spending money as if there were no tomorrow, and now realizes that he should have taken my advice to live as frugally as I have.

Oh Tig, I never thought about that! Had that happened, Panchito would have had that attack, since he’s the biggest scaredy cat in the world!

Yeah, don't buy what you don't need. And use whatever is left over to secure your accumulated wealth.

If that cash is burning a hole in your pants, invest it, don't spend it.

That's as basic as it gets.

Re: Live Frugally
My priority is that Grandpa and my 4-legged kids are well fed! It's seriously becoming more and more difficult.

I pray you're doing well!
So many hearts for you!

With as many pets as you have, I can imagaine.

And thank you. I've got my health, and I have some projects keeping me busy, so I'd say I'm doing alright.

I'm sure Panchito is very sorry, Mommy. He didn't mean to! At least it doesn't really matter...

I'm sorry about your brother. I can't even say how many people I know who have lost jobs recently. The list is ENORMOUS. It's very scary and we know we're only a heartbeat away from it, too (which would mean losing our house, by the way).

I feel sorry for Obama facing what he does. But hopefully he can start turning things around. (My fingers are crossed and my prayers are with him.) I'm tired of worrying about money every minute, believe me...

Hang in there. I'm keeping you and your brother in my prayers.

(hugs)

No, it doesn't matter at all. Cameras can be replaced, but Panchito never! :o)

Yes, very scary indeed! How did we all get to this predicament? It seems I went to bed one night when the world looked peachy, and when I woke up, the world look grey.

I feel sorry for Obama, too. I know he'll do everything in his power to change things around, but I wonder if he'll be able to do it. He has an almost imposible job ahead of him.

Thank you for your prayers; you and the world have mine, too!

So why's Dreamgirl trying to get back with your brother? Did she really realize it was a mistake, or is it that she doesn't have anywhere to live now?

She has a degree and is very much capable of taking care of herself. Perhaps she found that nobody is as nice a guy as my brother. He really love her, but he must have dignity and NOT take her back.

Real friends and family
If they leave when you are down. They are nothing but a parasite. Real family supports the others when they are done. Real family holds against outsiders. Friends stay through the tough times, and help you enjoy the good times. If they are not there when you are down don't even sweat about losing them, you never had them.

Re: Real friends and family
She left him at the worst time in his life, and you are right, she's proven herself to be a parasite.

When he was making good money, and had his home, he had her, and a bunch of friends. Now that he's down in the dumps, the girlfriend split, and the friends can be counted with one hand. I will always stand up for my brother, but I just don't know what I'll do if he takes her back. I pray he never does!

Son tiempos en verdad duros, espero que todo se resuelva bien para tu hermano...

Si, son tiempos tremendos. La mujer sigue hablandole y rogandole que sigan la relacion. Ojala que el siga diciendole NO!

Muchos abrazos!

Good to see a post from you!!!
Hopefully your brother will listen to you, it does show a person's character when they leave you when times are tough, and are only around when things are well. Maybe he'll realize this...hmm.

Thank you!

He IS listening to me, but he will be leaving for California in a few days, and that girl continues to call him to take her back! I hope she doesn't end up swaying him to take her back, because she sure isn't worth it.

Ah Panchito!
Glad to hear that the little bugger is OK. Been out of commission for several days, catching up this evening.

The thing with your brother and girlfriend is so typical of people. Freinds in name only, first sign of trouble and they are gone.

I would never do that to anybody I called my friend.
