“Love is Where You Find it”

I was wondering if I was going to have a post for today.  I didn’t have any good ideas and no pictures to share. Then this display of love and affection unfolded.  Lilly just adores Petey, and Petey will get snuggles wherever he can.




All Tucked In


The most irresistible dog treat!

While we were on vacation in Oregon we visited a place called Gary West Meats.  They specialize in smoked meats and jerky.  To our dogs delight we bought him some “doggie” jerky.  It is jerky batches that didn’t quite come out right, but who says it isn’t good enough for the hounds in your life.


Petey gets so excited when he sees us get it out of the fridge that he can hardly contain himself.  Here he is watching Glen’s every move, (like Glens Star Wars pajama pants?  :o) )


He has to sit to get his treat.  We also mostly toss it at him cause the treats are so fantastically good he might gobble up your fingers too.


See….I do have a green thumb

This is a weed that has grown in a flower pot that is sitting and being neglected on my back deck….and it bloomed.




“Uhm….my food bowl is empty” (she woke me with the power of her stare)




A Sharp Dressed Man

Yesterday, Glen was an usher in his neighbors son’s wedding.  It was the first time Glen had worn a tuxedo.  He looked good in it :-)Here is a nice picture that he took himself while he was getting ready.ImageI took this one after the ceremony was over.  He looks good in a tux!ImageHowever, this one is my favorite!  To be completely nerdy and quote ZZ Top…. every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man!!Image

Angelina’s wonderful cake!

June is just a busy month what with Fathers Day and birthdays all occurring in one week.  So I asked one of my coworkers, who just happens to make the best cakes ever, if she would make a cake for me.  She really did a wonderful job.  So the cake encompassed Mothers Day, Fathers Day, my step-dad’s birthday and my Mom’s birthday.  It was funny because my mom told me I shouldn’t be spending money on them, they don’t need anything.  Then when she took a bite of the cake she told me I didn’t pay Angelina enough money…..the cake was soooo freaking good!


The cake had alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla cake with strawberry butter cream frosting between the layers……may have to drive over to Mom and Larry’s so I can eat another slice of heaven.


Bentley’s Computer Tutorial

Last night Glen and I went out to dinner with my folks.  We went to Pizza Hut.  It was actually pretty good.  Hadn’t been to that particular establishment in a long time.  They have improved their pizza’s, they are no longer greasy and yucky.  After dinner, we went over to my parents house with Glen’s laptop so they could see all of our vacation pictures.  Their dog Bentley had to be involved too.

My mom showing Bentley how the mouse works.


Bentley seeing if he has the hang of it by himself.


Yep, definitely have the hang of it and thoroughly enjoying the pictures.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
