The Thursday Thirteen...



All three of my pups are still recuperating from their Spa Day...don't they look relaxed?  :)

Thirteen of My Favorite Places To Vacation:


1.Bermuda
2.Key West, FL
3.South Padre Island, Texas
4.Cloudcroft, New Mexico
5.Santa Fe, New Mexico
6.Taos, NM
7.Amelia Island, FL // Fernandina Beach, FL
8.San Antonio, TX
9.Biloxi, MS
10.Toronto, Canada
11.El Paso, TX
12.Surfside Beach, SC
13.Clearwater, FL


You will notice that the majority of my favorites are within the U.S. borders.  In today's world, I just don't have the same desire to venture too far away from our own country.  There was a time when I enjoyed Nassau in the Bahamas and Cozumel, Mexico.  But, not anymore...I am just not comfortable there.

I feel differently about Bermuda though...I feel pretty safe there, but one must always remember that when venturing out of the U.S., different laws pertain!  One must rely heavily on the U.S. Embassy abroad...does the name Amanda Knox ring a bell?  I still really believe that she was innocent and framed.  I cannot even imagine being in a foreign country where they speak a language I am not totally fluent in...and then being interrogated for hours on end.  Talk about frightening!!

Grooming Day!


I did not realize it had been twelve weeks in between grooms for the trio!  I took the first appointment I could get with Teena as I trust her explicitly with them.  It takes almost an hour to get to her house so we left early afternoon and dropped them off at 3pm.  It takes about four hours for them to be done, so we had to go and find something to do while we waited to pick them up.  So, Ben went over to Harbor Freight and dropped me off at Michael's so I could see what was new in the papercraft world.  As it turned out, I got a couple of really cute outfits the Romey and Juliet for the Fourth of July.  Chloe has no use for clothes of any kind...so I didn't get her any.

Then, we headed on over to Bill Gray's my Lake Ontario for burgers.  We haven't been there in YEARS and so much has changed...in the way of building, building, building.  Just who is buying all of these brand new homes??  That's what I'd like to know!!

We picked the trio up about 7 and headed on back home.  We were all exhausted upon arrival and we just wanted to sleep!  

I have wrestled with what I am going to do with my blog.  We have had several deaths to recover from and quite frankly, I am feeling very "down".  I question sometimes whether it is really worth keeping the blog going...especially when I figure in how much time and energy I put in to it...and the money just isn't there.  So, for the time being, I will try to just do my day to day "thing" and see where this takes me.

I have a lot of catching up to do on reading blogs as I have only been in to check on a few of you!  As I said, it has been quite the struggle getting out of my slump.

Hope all of you are ok and hanging in there!

Thursday Thirteen




For those bloggers who have been blogging as long as I have been...some of you may remember the "Thursday Thirteen" theme that we used to do...

We haven't done it in so many years!!  So, I decided to bring it back...at least for today!  

It IS Thursday...so here are...

Thirteen things I like about me:

~I can laugh at myself. Almost every situation has some kind of humor in it!!


~Good spelling. I could win a spelling bee hands down and I have!


~I adore dogs! Maybe I'm a bit partial to Bichon Frises, but still...I love most dogs...big / little / no matter!! They have hearts of gold and they don't talk back or ask for money.


~My thoughtfulness. I love making cards for people for no reason, buying some silly little thing just to make someone smile. I call, I write, I stay in touch. Really I do.


~I can remember numbers like no one's business. I don't know why, but I do. I can remember the Vehicle ID Numbers from all of our cars and the social security numbers of a bunch of people close to me. Some of 'em don't like it, but I can't help it. Perhaps I'm a genius in disguise :)


~It's very easy to embarrass me. I will never live this down. It was always a problem during those "surprise" work parties...you know...meet us in the conference room for a "meeting". Yeah. I didn't go. Used to really piss them off. Maybe I'm just shy.


~Apologies are not hard for me to give if I am wrong. 


~I'm relentless. I will NOT give up if it is something I truly believe in.


~I'm a good friend. Remember the staying in touch thing?


~I am extremely independent. And, I love it. A weekend spent in solitude with no one to bother me is Heaven!!


~I can be very creative. When I want to be. If I don't feel like it, forget it.


~I really love celebrating holidays...it's the little things in life!


~Hope and Faith - Two somewhat abstract ideas I'd never get through the day without.


So there you have it!


Give me your thoughts...should we bring the "Thursday Thirteen" back again?

Easter Eggs! The Throwback...

Almost Easter Egg Time!



I am throwing it back today to one of LadyBug's first Easters with us!  She discovered what hard boiled eggs were all about!


There was NO way I was going to keep her away from those eggs...this dog could LIVE on eggs!!  As soon as she realized that there was an actual egg inside those pretty colored things...she just helped herself!  She would lick the outside of the egg first...which of course made her face turn blue! 


There is no shortage of laughter in this house with these two...let me tell you!!

I still miss my baby girl...every day!

We DO have a LOT of antics around here with three though!

And YES I did color eggs last night...

Happy Thursday!
