Who gets the time out???

Yesterday was the first obedience class of the new session for  Miss Molly which I am doing with her....Popster does the agility class.  The teacher for this class is Betty who looks just like Dr Ruth minus the accent!      All the dogs but one were taking the class for a second or third time....Molly is not the only she decided to continue on from last session instead of from week one.

After doing some initial warm-ups on leash she split the class in half to do off leash heeling & u-turns.  Of course I'm in the first group & having not worked with Molly off leash in class was a little say the least!  Last session I would have the leash around my neck but attached to Molly's collar.  In fact that's what I started to do but Dr Ruth Betty said "No  I meant off leash!".  We started off down the room & Molly was like "ooh no leash?" & decided to have a "Yahoo Spasz Attack"!  It probably only lasted 15 secs before I was able to grab her but apparently another dog did the same thing so there was bedlam for about a minute!

When it was over Dr Ruth Betty said:
"If your dog does that again I want you to walk right out the door.  You will wait outside until we catch your dog & put him/her in a crate.  When told you may come back into the building but you must walk to the other side of the room & ignore your dog.  After the appropriate amount of time you may let your dog out & continue on with class"
During this lecture Molly is sitting in the perfect heel position listening very intently while I'm like okay now what Nana (that's an expression Josh always used when he was little)!
We did the exercise again & Molly was perfect......go figure!

I was telling Popster about it last night & he said he would have paid money to see me have to leave the building!


  1. Good grief that's a bit mean! Poor Molly. I would have loved to see you leave the building you naughty, naughty dog owner.

    Did you have to mention Dr. Ruth. Her image and voice are now stuck in my head. And the word penis is about to get yelled across the room in the same way that she says it.

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!"

Love Val
