paws and effect

When I’m working in the yard, Roxy-Doxy (a.k.a. ‘rockhound’) definitely has her own agenda. Her agenda does NOT involve helping me with the chores.

See?! She’s found the perfect stone! Isn’t this thrilling? ****yawn****whaterthechances??

As I dutifully unload my car of potting soil and plants, the Doxy has another plan for my day.

Yeah Roxy-Doxy…. I see your perfect rock. Nice. ****sigh****Rock=the cause
You’re gettin’ mighty close to the edge with that rock, wiener….don’t drop it!

Doxy….it’s gonna fa….. Uh-oh.

The effect.

The ultimate effect.

Pick up rock, throw rock into the bushes and repeat. The rock-drop never loses it’s appeal. Ne-ver.

You can imagine how much I am getting done…..

Spring love to all.

Super Sunday

What a week! Not one I want to re-live anytime soon.

Like much of the country, West Texas was in Old Man Winter’s icy clutch last week. Temperatures below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Wind blew for three days straight 40 to 50 mph. Wind chills registering -30F!!

The Texan and I did battle with no gas (not the stomach kind, the house-heating kind), no water in the house because of frozen pipes, and a big water leakage freeze-a-palooza with our well. The Texan is seeing money signs flying around possible replacement of the well. 

Checked out some of our cattle at the grow-yard yesterday. Lots of the young cattle didn’t make it through the cold blast. Some of their sad, lifeless bodies were drug to the side of the yard. Other bodies were still littering the pens.  The owners and employees of this cattle grow-yard looked drawn and weary.  They’d worked their butts off under unbelievably bitter conditions to save cattle.  Talk about good people….they are my heroes.  Crazy storms…..s**t happens.  Let’s keep on keepin’ on.

But hey, we’re still here and we have lots for which to be grateful.  Today it is snowing, and it almost seems warm compared to the frigid weather of just a few days ago.  We desperately need this moisture.

To kick-off your Super Sunday, I’m sharing this little, short (har-har) video. It gives you a taste of what it’s like to live with a highly interactive wiener dog. She’s doing what she was born to do. Perhaps it will make you smile??


Now….lean back in your recliner. Light the fire. Gather family/friends and the young’uns around.  Grab your favorite adult beverage and scoop that chip deep into your favorite carb-laden dip.  Savor this Sunday.  Eat a brat for me, will you?
Highly interactive love to all.
