Schatzie Memorial Candle

This came today and really touched my heart. My friend Sue sent this beautiful 'Furry Angel Memorial' candle in honor of my Schatzie, my German Shepherd girl who passed away recently.

Capone chillin'

For Dog on Thursday, I thought I'd post this picture of Capone looking cool in his pink shades.

Computer problems

I was offline from last Monday until yesterday afternoon, due to a computer problem. When our neighbors were cutting down a tree in their yard damaged by a recent ice storm, we got a power surge through the phone lines. Our phones had no dial tone and sounded dead. So, we waited for four days until the AT&T guy came and said there was some sort of problem in the house, then left without coming in, because he said he'd have to wait for another work order. Gee, thanks for that, we thought.

Anyway, since we are on dial-up, our modem was fried. Thankfully, the hard drive and monitor were saved by our surge protector. Our computer guy switched the part out yesterday, so now I'm back up and a-runnin'.

Maizy all Dolled Up

I bet this made you either smile or do a double-take!
My daughter Brittany dressed Maizy up and took this cute picture,
which I thought would be perfect for Dogs on Thursday.

Things have been pretty dang hectic around here all year, for one reason or another.

Kentucky was hit by a terrible ice and snow storm, the likes of which noone can remember ever seeing in the state's recorded history. Two weeks and some still have no power. We were without electricity for a week, no phone or cell signal for five days. We brought in a kerosene heater that kept us warm, and heated up a mean pan of beans for supper. The National Guard actually stopped by our home twice to check on us, a surprise since we live out in the boon docks. I've never seen anything like this ice storm, and hope it doesn't happen to this severity again.

Before that, we all had a bug that kept us sick in bed for a week. At least we were feeling good when the storm hit.

Sorry about being away so long, but it was kinda unavoidable. Rest assured I should be back blogging at least once a week from now on. Kick my butt if I don't!
