She had a lost dog on her lap and was driving around the neighborhood asking people if they recognized the dog. She was very upset because he didn't have tags on him. She said she couldn't keep him because she has a dog at home that wasn't good with other dogs. I felt so bad so I took him in until we find the owner. And guess what? He's a yorkie like Molly and Maggie. I'm not sure where I'm going to let him sleep tonight. I'll figure something out. He looks like he hasn't been to the groomer in a while but he seems fine otherwise. He is very sweet. Here are a couple of pictures.

I hope you find his family soon, so nice of you to take him in while your looking.

Good SUnday morning, my Christmas friends!

Jacob has been gone for 3 days at the Christian retreat, and we finally get to pick him up this afternoon! I have to say, I've missed the boy.

Yesterday I cut the grass, cleared the stump & roots from my yard where we took a tree down, did all the string-trimming & cut the shrubs. Then it was time to go to work. Whew!

I went to my brother's shop, but the heads weren't back from the shop. So, we installed a A/C unit in his office. Not a window unit, but a 2 ton system with the outside condensing unit and the air handler in the closet. Years & years ago, I worked for a refrigeration & A/C company, so we gave it a shot. We actually got it mostly finished, but I remember why I didn't settle on A/C work for a living. Too much crawling around in the attic.

Anyway, It'll be good to see Jacob again. I hope ya'll have a great day!

Good morning,

Another lazy day to be here, we are taking a trip to a car dealership because we "won a major award" there, so we are going to see what it is. I am hoping for the $10,000. It will probably end up being a $5 gift card.
Before I went to sleep last night, I listened to the Christmas greeting podcast from December, hearing CM3's greeting, it made me think of her, and how how much I miss her. I hope her furkids are doing well.
I will probably watch some Red Sox and the NHL Draft this afternoon, and then Oz The Great & Powerful tonight.

Wish us luck on the prize.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Good afternoon everyone! Feels like the weekend got away from me a bit... hubby hasn't been feeling well so we've been just hanging around. Another round of RAIN is coming through.. heavy rain AGAIN! It's already the wettest June on record. Hey, at least I haven't had to water!!

I was searching the tv for "Christmas," as I do regularly, and was so excited to see Hallmark movies popping up in July. Wooooo!

hope he had a good time. Our youth were off to pitch and praise 2 weeks ago.
There is also a group of youth out on a short term mission trip to Zambia. A young couple from our church are missionary's there and they have gone for 10 days to help.
