Spring Photo Shoot

It's been so long since I last posted about about the polar vortex visiting us that it is now spring.  Thank Goodness!!  Complaining about the heat and humidity is just a few weeks

I took advantage of a beautiful day to get some new pics of the pups.  Thumper is always a good sport and gives me plenty of photo ops, but Lightning is like a sulky teenager and must be bribed to cooperate.

Please enjoy.  I haven't had the drive to blog much lately, but I have enjoyed reading a lot of yours.  

If you don't mind, let me know what your favorite picture is in the comments and why.  Photography is a hobby I've been trying to get back in to, and I'd really appreciate some comments about what works.

Thanks for stopping by!    


Is that a LIZARD?!?

Azaleas - did you know that they have a scent?  I didn't until I smelled them today.

Oh crap she's got the camera.
I am NOT going to look at the camera....
I will - Take my picture!

Yes, he's got some gray starting to show on his face.  He seems too young for that, but he's still a puppy at heart.

I am NOT going to look at the camera.....

I am NOT going to look at the camera.....

Did you say "inside"?  Is this torture over?  Really?

This is my serious can I go inside?
And I'm certain I've earned a milk bone for this.
Now I have to go inside.
I really being outside better.
 Guess I'll make the best of it and take a nap.

Polar Weather

The polar vortex came to visit.  We are not used to truly cold weather.  We did not believe the weather man when he said the temperature would not get above freezing.  But he was right.  Moms car had icicles on it when she left work, and the yard has ice, cold water, and icicles.  Going outside is not fun.  We want our summer back.  

Hey mom-can I have a litter box?  My toes can't handle the cold!

By the way, the weather channel lied.  The temperature stayed 29F all day.  Our local guys got it right.

Monday Mischief: Yeah, You Caught Me!

For the first post of 2014, I thought I'd make it a funny one.

During the holiday, we were out of the house for awhile and had left the dogs out of their crates.  They are usually good dogs these days.  It seemed innocent enough.

My son had gotten back from a hiking trip the day before, and while unpacking his bags, he left a ziplock bag of goodies out.  Somewhere.  He says it was on the kitchen counters.  I can't tell you for sure, because when I found it, it was on the dining room floor in shreds.  I found a granola bar on my bed, Thumper in his grate with a granola bar between his paws, and THIS mess (see below).  He even ate what was left of the beef jerky and what was left of pack of hamburger buns.  I can not imagine why he dragged a bag of potatoes from the pantry.....did he think they were balls???  Picture quality is not great, but this all happened too fast to whip out the Canon.  Iphone had to do.

So here we go.....a new year, new mischief.  Let's laugh about it.
