Enjoyed our Florida trip

 Inside Erin's huge house!
 Outside their "mansion"...all 3 boys put up the lights and tripped the breakers 5 times...but it was so worth it.
 Erin and mama being silly at a "candy" store.
 Erin's way of relaxing at the beach.
 The family walking along the ocean!
 Chuck and Holden after Holden's swim!
The Atlantic Ocean.

Don't think we could have had any more fun. Did you notice the "new" sunglasses...we have only eyes for Martini's - LOL! Had a ball but not long enough there. I can see why people become snow birds. I would love to do that.

Best Friends - Thank you all for being there for me!

A smile - is a sign of joy.
A hug - is a sign of love.
A laugh - is a sign of happiness.
And a friend like me??

Shoot...

That's just a sign of good taste!!



   

 

Dog Forums

Why do there have to be such mean spirited people out there that come in and ruin dog forums...they all seem to find each one and than try to ruin it....I have never met so many of them and the lies that they tell amaze me....decided to stay away from them and let them eat each other and leave the good people alone.

You have any opinions please let me know...they all are like vampires and seems to come out of the woodwork....BEWARE.

ONE OF THE SAFEST AND MOST DRAMA FREE SITES OUT THERE IS: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Furbabylovers/?ref=ts&fref=ts


Heard that one that was popular last year and had several hundred people at their meetup only have lest than 7 active total this year....they ate all the others...lol

Beware of  all other dog forums

Absolute Yorkies - How to remove sticky stuff from your Yorkie's Coat

Removing Sticky Stuff from Your Yorkie’s Coat
April 16th, 2010 ·


I promise to stay away from the paint mommy!

TODAY’S TIDBIT: It’s springtime and everybody wants to get outside and fix up their lawns and houses! People are bringing out the paint to repair winter’s wrath. Driveways are being resurfaced. We’re taking our Yorkies for longer walks on the city sidewalks. Why is it that Yorkies’ coats seem to me magnets for all this “sticky stuff?”

Here are a few “undesirable” substances our Yorkies have encountered and what we’ve done for “damage control”:

Tree sap: Almost hardens right away and makes a tangled mess. You can try and wash it out and then rub a little mink oil on the hair while you’re brushing your Yorkie’s coat.

Paint: If your dog isn’t going into the show ring, just let the paint wear out. A few baths over time should do the trick. NEVER use paint remover or solvent on your Yorkie! It’s poisonous if ingested by your dog and will really irritate their skin.

Tar: Cutting it out is your best bet. If the dog has a lot of tar in his coat, try rubbing the tar with petroleum jelly and wiping it off with a rag. Watch your Yorkie to make sure he doesn’t eat the tar.

Gum: It’s disgusting when people discard their chewed up gum on the sidewalk! Try rubbing the gum with ice cubes and then cutting it out. Be careful not to let your Yorkie eat the gum because it could get lodged in her throat.

To make life easier for you and your Yorkie, make sure the hair between and around the paddy paws is clipped away so if they do walk in some “junk” off the ground it won’t get stuck between the pads.

Realty "LIFE"

I'm not a big fan of reality shows...but boy do I enjoy watching and listening to real life dramas.

Right now I am in the middle of watching someone unravel her entire life...piece by piece and it couldn't have happened to a nicer person...she has hurt so many people and continued to do this for years by doing puppymills, cheating on her husband, stealing money from her friends and forum people, lying, claiming to be a christian and so much more and than along came my friend...

and because of my friends' knowledge, contacts and just plain smarts she has stopped this drama and the "survivors" or "followers" cold in their tracks....

I love it...no show can match watching this on a daily basis and watching how each one plays at "world's dumbest"....

will share the whole details when this totally unravels...it is so funny!

It has sex, humor, drama, fraud, lying, cheating, stealing and did I say lying? And the best part is...there are some good guys with white hats that will finally put an end to it all and end this life of drama and crime. Stay turned for the next episode...

OH NO!!!!! NOT MORE SNOW.....





This isn't one of our picture but more of this is heading in Thursday and this weekend. The sad thing is with all the cuts on jobs and city positions...we don't have enough people to spread the sand and clear the streets for us this time...this should be great....not only are we cutting back on police and fireman but now the city workers...way to go mayor....great choices...did you cut your salary too....

Trying to get everything done today and tomorrow before all this hits but it is so cold out there .... will try to get pics of my own snow this time...it was so overwhelming with all the snow and the drifts the last time....most of it all has just now melted and now this.........good thing I have hubby and the 6 furries to hug and keep warm with me....hey maybe that isn't so bad after all....

Planning our vacation trips

We have 3 1/2 weeks and this year the policy at work changed for hubby...he no longer can cash in the vacation time....so that means we have to take the trips....

Cruise, Pennsyvania, Dallas, SanAntonio, Kingsville and more...can hardly wait...

woohoo!!!!!!!!

But, I can't wear myself out too much with all the planning ...I am excited and so are the furs with the plans,
they can hardly wait ......
I think they will enjoy what we have planned, don't you? lol


NO MORE FACEBOOK! TOO MANY VIRUSES

Got rid of my facebook account...had to spend a bunch to fix it this week..guess what the cause of all the viruses was.......yep.........FACEBOOK....so it is gone...figure there are enough other ways to get ahold of me and when facebook even warns about their own viruses than it is time to stop....

We have so many other forms of communication that I can not afford to have a program like that on my computer or phone again....No way~ No More~

My computer runs so much faster now that they are all gone and even removed YM...it made my computer slow and now I feel like I have a brand new computer....how cool....

BUT
The one down side is that the furs have to watch me on the computer more now since it is like a new computer...I love it!!!

THINK IT WILL AFFECT THEM? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

Bathed 6 furbabies this morning

Well, it was long overdue and much needed but with the amount of snow and how cold our weather was here....I had been hesitant to bathe the furry 6.....

Always start out by taking their collars off, undressing them and the 2 that wear bellybands I take that off...and guess what 2 of the 6 disappeared....we have a little house that they hide in when we are playing chase and when they go into it....we can't touch them...we pretend we can't find them and they are safe.

...except on bath day....the top of the roof comes off and I can still grab them....

Got all of the 6 bathed and ended up thoroughly soaked myself. All of mine are small and can fit into my kitchen's double sink...so I bathe and Fred towel dries...and when we put each one down...we move quickly out of the way.........why?

Because they are mad that they were bathed and we watch out for the others around whoever is put down...because they take it out on each other....too funny....

They now smell and look fabulous and are dressed and ready to go....they have their weekly Starbucks outing on Sunday's so they know what day of the week this is...

How amazing that they recognize words and actions and know that we are going to Starbucks....will get pics of them when we are out tomorrow...........

DRAMA ON FORUMS

Why does there have to be so much drama at forums....that has perplexed me for some time...is it because there are so many dissatisfied woman who have nothing better to do than go to a forum and cause trouble...or have an unhappy home life?
the ideal situation is to do a blog and than someone can't be jealous of you, or tell you that you have bad ideas or not like someone just because they are more popular than they are.....women! strange breed!

Why can't women put their big girl panties on and grow up.......
saw tons of friends drop out of sites this last year and this year...not because they wanted to but because someone was jealous of them and reacted.............how very sad to say that is a part of the forum nature..........Better off without them or have them closed down...
already saw three either close or close to closing down and one more more almost there...WoW! And why won't women stop their gossiping and let it go...grab their big girl panties......and move on...life offers so much more...
BUT IT IS ENTERTAINING AND FUN TO WATCH THEM SPIN THEIR WHEELS....REALLY FUNNY AND THAN TO KNOW WHAT REALLY IS HAPPENING! LOVE IT!
