I would like to say a warm welcome to 2 new followers: Debbie of Life Refreshed and Princess Judy Palmer of Blog This. Whooee, just a few more new followers to reach my next goal level of 200 followers, and there's gonna be BLOG CANDY! When I get home, I'll take some pictures & post as some added enticements. Thanks for joining me here, and I hope you'll like what I babble on about. Let me encourage my other visitors to check out each of these blogs...not only some beautiful work to feast yer peepers on, but get a few good giggles too.
Since I haven't any cards to share, I thought I would share a couple of photos of the family..those I could get to cooperate with the camera & me. SIL refuses to join in when I'm taking pictures, and the one I finally captured of DH & DD is not all that great. But still, will give you an idea of what they look like in 'at home attire'. (I can already hear both of them saying "You DIDN'T really POST that, did you?"
Dallas was adopted as a 3-4mo old puppy. When she was 2 yrs, DD discovered the folks who had adopted her sister, Reilly, didn't want the dog. So you can guess what happened next. Reilly is the one I'm allergic to, and I have difficulty in telling them apart. I don't pet either one because of that. I only pet Ossie if the other 2 are not where they can see it. (Yes, it does hurt their feelings!). Dallas was extremely rambunctious at first; she loved to chew toes. Now that she's 7, she is better behaved. Reilly basically follows her sister's lead and whatever Dallas is doing, Reilly does too. When you see one, you know the other is right behind.
Charles joined the group about 2 months ago. This is his face when he is absolutely positive that he's going to join you for whatever it is that you may be eating. Doesn't matter, he wants some of it. He has diabetes, so treats are forbidden and he has to eat special food. He much prefers to sneak in & gobble up the greys' food & really snarfs it down. He's also quite a Hoover when food & crumbs are dropped from your plate. He doesn't beg, he just sits at your feet, looking up with this very hopeful expression.
The last picture is of a PT boat that we saw pass by on Christmas morning. This is the first of these boats we've seen on the water. These boats were used in WWII, just in case you didn't already know this! Hope that you've enjoyed the pictures and seeing a bit of my family. Hugs & come again soon.
