Game Night

 

We have been kind of busy the last few days.  Just trying to stay out of trouble. You know how that goes.  Saturday we spent taking walks and I did my Domestic Goddess bit and ran the sweeper, did a little dusting, and got all caught up on laundry again.  The reason I mentioned walking is because my blood pressure is up a bit, and if I want to stay off the dreaded blood pressure medicine, I must do things to help myself.  Along with walking I intend to be more aware of what I stick in my mouth.  I know before, when my blood pressure was up, these 2 things got it back to normal.

 

Yesterday I talked to my beautiful daughter, Shannon.  It was her Birthday.  Bless her heart, she had her Grandson all day the day before, and got her back out of whack too.  As you can tell, it runs in our family.  Something us big ole tall, Irish people have to put up with.  I have a picture of her and my S-I-L that I want to share with you.

Want to welcome my 3 new followers.  The first is Deano.  I think his site is interesting, but very political, so if you are into that kind of thing, this site is for you.  The next is The Good Luck Duck.  I just read a small part of this one, but do intend to read more later.  The third is RV Adventures.  This is a very unique site, so check it out when you get a chance.  Thanks to all of you for riding along.. :)

 

I also went through my clothes this week end.  I have so many t-shirts that they were beginning to take over, so had to go through and pick out the ones I haven’t worn forever.  I wanted to do this while my little sister was here, but somehow I never got around to it.  I also had some crop pants I never wear.  So look out Dottie, I have a whole trash bag full of stuff for you and Ella to go through next time we are in Paducah.

 

We did go down to the club house last night and played games with some of the other RVers.  Our table played golf, a card game, but there was another table playing some kind of peg game.  I never caught the name of it.  It sounded like they were having a good time though.  I have a picture I took last night to share with you.

Starting right in front, Al, Donnie, Paul, Carolyn, Dave, Nancy, Jack, Walt, Eva, Wayne, and Linda.  I was in the empty chair.  We just played one game, or 9 hole/deals, then we came back home.  It was lots of fun though, and we will be doing it again.

 

When we drove up in front of our RV, we saw 2 of the biggest rabbits I have ever seen.  They looked like a small dog.  Donnie said they are Jack Rabbits, which I have always heard about, but never saw till last night.

 

Here is something that is hard to believe.  The leaves are just now turning down here.  I have proof.  I took a picture.  Not the best picture in the world, but at least you can see what I am talking about.

Isn’t that something? 

 

We spent the morning in Uvalde today.  We had to buy groceries, and I had some Christmas shopping for the kids to do yet.  We have half way decided to get ourselves a little dog for Christmas.  We will of course go to a shelter or Humane Society to get one, but we will give a  donation. We really miss our pets.  It is something we have been talking about for a while, but decided while my brother was still living, we were just too busy to devote time to a new pet, but now we have the time, and feel like it is time.  We are hoping for a medium sized dog.  I would love to have a big ole fat cat, but my allergies just won’t allow it.  Anyway, wish us luck on our hunt for the new member of our family.  Catch you all later… :)

Oh Boy, Oh Boy Oh Boy, that is what some cute little pup will be saying the minute you walk in the door, you will know right away which one walks off with your heart,and the added benefit is dogs need to be walked and that fits into your BP plans. We know you will make a great Mom for the lucky winner, don't forget the pic's. What a great gift not only to you guys but to the lucky pup too.Be safe out there. Sam & Donna...

I like the header picture, but I am guessing you did not take that in Texas.

Your daughter is a pretty lady. Looking forward to seeing photos of your new dog. Thank you for being a rescue person for a dog that needs a new home. Both our Chihuahua's are rescue dogs.

Your daughter doesn't look old enough to have a grandson! Take your time choosing just the right canine companion. Some dog is going to be mighty lucky to get you two! :)

Pets can be really rewarding, but a puppy is a whole lot of work too. We know as we have a 13 week old right now. She is in her crate as I write this!

Make a donation? Dog adoptions here run $85.00, and they want your life history! One even wanted to know how large my yard was! Would the dog be left alone?
I decided NOT to adopt. Then my grand kids bought Kandi for me, from a breeder, pure bred. You usually get what you pay for! Enjoy what ever you end up with. Poodles don't shed, and don't have that dog dander.
