"Does it bite?" or "Doggie spring fever"

I was at work yesterday afternoon when my cell phone rang.  I was busy so ignored it but then decided I better check my voice mail I heard the following message
" Hi (bark).  This is Ed (bark, bark) from UPS & I'm(bark, bark) trying to deliver a package(bark, bark, bark)  There's this big black  (bark) dog & I don't know if it's safe(bark,bark bark) to get out of my truck.  Please call me" 
I look at the's 3:00pm so Popster should be at work.  I call Ed back & he tells me the big black dog is in my driveway!!!  I tell him to take the package to my neighbor's house.  I then call my neighbor & ask her if Molly is outside & also is Popster's car in the driveway.  She tells me no car & Molly had been barking at the UPS truck.  I asked if she would please go over & put Molly in the house thinking Popster must have left  for work forgetting she was outside.  We have an invisible dog fence so Molly can be outside alone but we would never leave her out if no one was home.  I left a message on Popster's cell telling him what happened.  When he came home from work he walked around back & found the french door wide open & Molly came bounding up from the back of the yard.  It turns out he hadn't locked it & she figured out how to open it!  When Ellen put her back in the house she had closed it but didn't know how to lock it so Molly just went back out again!!

When I got home from work we had the following conversation:

"Molly you are only two & you are not allowed to play outside when no one is home!  Understand? Oh & you must remember the brown tuck with UPS on it & the white truck that says FedEx are Mommy's friends, very good friends so please don't scare them anymore!"

  This is her last night sleeping with one paw over her ear as if to say "turn the d*mn tv down I'm trying to sleep!"  She was exhausted from her afternoon adventure!


  1. Really great story. One smart doggy.
    Do you think you can teach her to iron?

  2. Actually I like to iron & do laundry(my SIL calls me Widow Twankey)...maybe I can teach her to vacuum!!!!

  3. Perhaps it's an English thing cos I like it too but I detest washing floors.

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
