As soon as I turn on the weather this morning our weather guy says it will be 100 degrees. Blah!

I would love to hang out here and catch up but I have to run. I will try to be back later.

Have a Merry Day everyone!
as long as I do not have to shovel it I love the dream!
It is really chilly here today.

Good morning, friends!!

Hope you are all having a great day so far!

Harlowe seems to be doing better, thank God. She still isn't 100%, but is much better than last night. She is no longer getting sick, and is starting to eat and drink a little. Thanks for thinking of her 💛

I am having trouble catching up on my computer, I keep getting kicked out or referred to the platinum membership page :/ Not sure if they are working on the site, or not. Anyone else having the same trouble?

I will check back & catch up later!

Thinking of you all~

xx

As your Christmas family, we share your loss. It is so hard, and sometimes others don't understand how we can love an animal and feel so lost without him or her. Praying for your daughter and your family.

He was just started middle school. He was up almost all night crying. I wanted to keep him home so bad because he was grieving but being the first day of school he went ahead and went. That morning he seemed okay so we sent him. I know it has to be hard on Vicki to leave like that. I know it's hard on you too to see her hurting.

Happy birthday to Jacob. I loved how you described the friend's spending the night. Boys!!!

Well, the boys are older now, so his buddy is "crashing at Jacob's place" Friday night, not "spending the night with Jacob." I expect to hear guitars till 3 in the morning.

I took Nancy to Jim's shop to see the latest Camaro, and she was actually impressed. Jim and I plan to start sanding the body this weekend, preparing for a primer-coat.

I hope y'all have a great day!

While we were there at the vets, she had a she had died while they were working on her, she was 7 years old and her name was "Bunny B" or Mrs B or just B, as we called her.

She was a dwarf bunny and she was 7 years is an old age for that type of rabbit. Vicki had gotten her when she was in middle school 6 or 7th grade and B was so personable, she loved chips, cereal, she would lay on the couch with us and watch tv, she loved to have her head rubbed and was also litter box trained.

Vicki was so upset, crying, which got me all upset, what timing, the day of her leaving home. B is now buried under a young oak tree that I planted in the yard.
always hard to loose a pet. ((((HUGS)))) to Vicki.
