Close up, this litte puppy really does appear to have fuzzy ears! I hope you find a sweet place on your layouts for him/her? I've hand painted this sweet critter for you to 'adopt' into your family - much less trouble than a real puppy, though I know its not the same.


Thanks for all your warm comments - we had a nice time with our daughter and her boyfriend over the weekend. Admittedly, our visits are too few and far between but hopefully this will change. I took time off from packing to just enjoy their company. We had a nice dinner out together and cuddled up for a movie!

We took 'the kids' out to the new house - and Dan helped Miles move a desk into the basement. The desk is a handsome and well made piece of furniture which was built at the hand of our friend Roger - remember Roger and Marie who periodically supply us with pics of their Alpaca? Roger has quite the talent with furniture building and is very generous in his skills. He's often created some item for the school which makes life neater and simpler. Thanks Roger!


it will be fun to float about - if I'm not online you know where we are...

Our current landlords arrived home yesterday so the process will all begin. We've been in this place for 9 years so there will be a bit of upgrading required - but the hardest part of all will be leaving this comfortable nest will be living apart from Elroy and Linda. I know I had to hold back the 'happy tears' when I talked with them yesterday - and I am sure more are queued up...

So, in saying this, I best go and continue my packing/cleaning cycle...


Today in History:

1792 - Congress establishes Coin denominations of United States.

1935 - Watson Watt granted a patent for RADAR.

I did hear a few interesting articles on the radio over the weekend, two of which I will share with you! The first article ... well, I will let you decide for you. Ok, it was an article - that if you are a baseball fan you will like... for the rest of us we might be scratching our heads here... apperently you can now purchase urns (for your ashes if you get cremated) and from AUTHORIZED dealers eg: funeral homes, you can have a team logo emblazoned on your urn... ok....

The second and third articles you can actually listen to - (I love npr!) This first one is a very sweet article about a book which was recently published about people's teddy bears. I mean who can't love a teddy? I hope you enjoy, you can listen HERE

The third article is not for the queezy of stomach as it is about 50 Foods To Try Before You Die... some of them are NOT nice! You can listen HERE



Just Some Cool Graphics

This site is a great time to kill some time playing with the interesting graphics - not for slower computers!
