A Whole New Year

Hello everyone,
Its been quite some time since I have written anything on here, so I figured it was about time. Hope everyone had good holidays I sure did. Christmas was great, and New Years was too. John and I celebrated two years together on New Years day. We just recently sold The Greenhouse which was really good news. Its shaping up to be a good year I think. Hopefully lots of good things will happen this year. Savannah his daughter will be married this year that will be an exciting time for her. I can't think of anything else at the moment but life is looking good right now and thats the way we like it.

Monday without rain

            Hello all,
                   Its been quite a while since I've written on here. We have been doing all sorts of things. Anything from dealing with lawnmower problems, to cleaning up our deck area of vines and debris. Our furry little critters are glad to have it not raining this week.  We went to a friends boys graduatuion over the weekend it was nice to see everyone.
The geenhouse that his daughter runs is really flourishing this year. They've got all kinds of landscaping jobs to do. And the shop itself is doing good this year. She and her fiance and all who work there are doing a great job. They are really making a name for theirselves.  

It will be nice to be able to do some grilling this week without getting wet in the process. We are doing hamburgers tonight and probably some tater tots. Its always nice to be able to cook outdoors. It makes for less mess, and grilled food is always a hit. And its nice to spend time outside.

We have lots of projects to do this summer. I think we will stay quite busy. The next thing I want to do out on the back deck is repaint it. That will make it look so much better and help preserve it in the process. And I don't mind painting so its a good project.  Also we want to clean up an old flower bed back there that is overgrown with vine and other things that will make it look lots nicer back there after we do that. Thats just a couple of the priojects on the choppping block but its enough to stay busy with for a little while.

Have a good day,
              and as always
        Happy Tailwagging!!!!

Well its another Monday,what is it about this day that always makes it seem blah? We never look forward to it, and are glad when its over. This day gets the worst wrap of all. It's a cold day here in Kansas today. I think spring decided to leave for a couple days and let winter come back. At least it was a nice weekend. We visited a customer of his over the weekend that bought a race track in Missouri. It was the first shoot out race there for the year. It went really well and we had good time seeing friends and watching the action. They had one wreck but the guy wasn't hurt so that was a good deal. And actually didn't hurt the car too bad so I'm sure he will be back out sometime this season. I got to see my first top fuel car in person that was cool. You sure do feel it when they make a pass. Hope you all have a good day!! Happy Tailwagging!!!

Hi all,
Its a somber day in my house today. Yesterday we had to put our boxer Sadie down. She was getting worse so we had to make the call. I have to say its already lonely without her. Its never an easy thing to do. But its the worst when you've had them for a lot of years. She isn't suffering though and that's the main thing. She will be greatly missed. I guess they say time heals all wounds, it just takes a while when they're deep. She was my loyal companion for a lot of years this was my turn to be loyal to her. She gave me ten good years and they will always be remembered. Saying goodbye was tough but then it always is. Well anyway here's a toast to Sadie may she rest in peace. Happy Tailwagging!!!!

In memory of Sadie
November 1st 1999 to March 24th 2009
We will miss you!!!

Good day everyone,
Well our big girl is hanging on ,we're just taking it day by day with her. She has had a stroke, and couple of seizures but she's holding her own. She has a ways to go to be normal again if she ever will be but she has a will to live and as long as she has that she's got a chance. She doesn't appear to be suffering so we are giving her the best care we can. The vet told us to put her on baby aspirin to deal with the seizures so we did that. As for the stroke part only time will tell whether she will regain what she has lost or not. She circles to the left alot .P.artly because of focusing problems with her eyes. And also partly because of the brain activity or lack there of that stroke victims deal with. She also hasn't wagged her nubbin since this happened, and she hasn't barked. Its really kind of weird but hopefully she will come out of some of this and be the dog that we love to play with again. Have a good day all!! Happy Tailwagging!!!

Our Furry Companions

Hi all,
Sorry its been a while life just hasn't been all that exciting. But now our boxer Sadie is having some problems. And we're not totally sure whats going on with her so I'm concerned. You know you never realize how much they affect your life until you don't know what to do for them. They are always there for you. And when they get at that age when they have health issues. It is tough knowing that theres going to be that day when you have to tell them goodbye. I hope that day is later than sooner but you just never know. To all you animal lovers out there love them as much as you can while you can. Happy Tailwagging !!!!

Good afternoon,
Its a lovely day outside here today. Its a nice change to see sunshine and have it be halfway warm. We have a busy weekend planned. Tomorrow we are going to Wichita to the swap meet at the coliseum. Saturday night we have a party to go to in Oklahoma for his car organization. I think both will be a nice time. I started a new Lisa Jackson novel yesterday. I haven't gotten to far in it yet, but so far its pretty good. So far Sadie hasn't had anymore seizures which is good. We have been working on the firewall in the car, trying to get it smoothed out for when it gets painted. I got in the baking mood today. So I made some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Cookies always seem to be a big hit in this house. They always dissapear quickly which is good that way I don't eat to many. Have a good evening all and Happy Tailwagging!!!!
