Back To Work

Mom has to go back to work today. I am NOT happy. I LIKED sleeping late last week, snuggled up to her under the blankets as she read or just stayed in bed. I am NOT looking forward to being ejected from the bed at 6:30 am. YUK!

Mom Says

That I am NOT a saint. She wanted the container from the Lindt chocolate truffels cuz it was cool and I shredded it. She was NOT happy with me. sigh.

I May Be A Saint

 But apparently the Spring Flingers think Lucky is the sweetest, and most lovable and smooshiest.

Well, okay, if you like that kind of stuff.

I Am A Saint

Yes I am. I totally am. Marcella says so and therefore I am. Anyone want to argue with her? Mom is trying but mom is losing. lol

Spring Fling

A bunch of pug bloggers decided to get together on the East Coast and Mom decided to take us down to Connecticut for the festivities.

Here I am with Marcella. She thinks I am a saint. Santa Rosalia de la Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro aka Roxy♥
Here is Lucky getting some loving.

And even more! Marcella wanted to take Lucky home to San Diego. Mom said no way!

Here we are for the group photo. I think there were 21 or 22 pugs present.

When mom went to check into the hotel without me, I didn't move until she came back. Wilma's mom and Punchy can vouch for that fact.

And here I am behaving very well. Mom says I am being anti social. Dad says I was probably scared of all the new people and pugs.

And here was our lovely hostess, Miss Wilma! We had an awesome time meeting everyone and talking and I didn't steal ANY food.

Tuckered Out

Mom, Lucky and I are pretty tuckered out from our weekend away so you'll have to wait another day for all the "news". Sorry.

Having Fun

Don't mind us, we're having fun down in Connecticut and we'll be back to tell you all about it tomorrow. Hope PlusOne and Dad survived without us!

She Did IT!!!

Yup, mom gave me a bath. A horrible WET bath.  I have no idea why.

Do you think I needed a bath?

Mom Says

That since we are going some place special this weekend, she may need to give me a BATH!!!

The Boston Marathon is the country's oldest marathon. Runners from around the world come to Boston to compete. Yesterday, the beautiful, tranquil Patriot's Day was turned to chaos as bombs exploded near the finish line. The ONLY consolation is that since the marathon had reached the 4 hour mark, the areas that were bombed were NOT as crowded as they were an hour before (at 2:00 pm, the crowd was over ten deep on the sidewalks) and that police and  emergency personnel were already on the scene in force to make certain everyone had a safe and enjoyable day.

A friend of ours was 20 feet from the first bomb. He rushed to the scene, saw someone who needed help and used his Boy Scout first aid training to help them until a wheelchair was procured and they could be taken to an ambulance. He said his ears were STILL ringing five hours after the blast.

Lucky & I are sending our thoughts and prayers to all the victims of this violent crime and we hope that the combined law enforcement agencies catch the person or persons who did this very, very quickly.

All Done

Mom plans on replacing the steps, as well. But she will do them one at a time. It will be easier. She also plans on replacing the railings.
Or at least the TOPS of the railings. The rails themselves are fine but the tops look yukky! No more worrying about painting EVER again! Woo Hoo!

Almost There

In the beginning...

This is the before. I know which one I like better.

If The Sun Doesn't Shine Today

then we are NOT going outside. Yesterday we had rain, rain, heavy rain, sleet and SNOW!! Yes, you heard me, SNOW!. So unless it is sunny and warm today, Lucky and I are on strike and are NOT moving from this nice warm spot. For anything! (well, maybe for food, but NOTHING else!)

Friday, April 12, 2013


I can't even go there. We probably won't get snow, but we are supposed to get SLUSH which is worse than snow. I am going to start calling this the winter that will NEVER END!!!!

April Showers

Thank goodness it's NOT snow! Enjoy your day and hope you don't get too wet.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Mom is in the proverbial doghouse because she forgot that last Friday was our fur cousin Millie's SEVENTH birthday. (dum dum dummmm). Here is Millie on her new "kitty condo". I don't know why one cat needs a condo, but then, I'm not a cat.
Happy Belated Birthday, Millie!

Working Hard

Mom worked very hard on the front porch deck yesterday (even though she got a late start). She forgot that DESTRUCTION takes more time than CONSTRUCTION. All she has to do now is rip one piece from 5-1/4 to 4-1/4 (this is the piece that butts against the house, and then she can line the others up and boom boom boom and she'll be done. Well, maybe not that easily, but still...

Hardly Working

While it WAS nice and sunny yesterday, it was also WICKED windy, Mom wouldn't have been able to last outside too long before turning into a human popsicle. So she postponed the deck until today. Hopefully it won't be as windy today.

Mom's Project For Today

Mom is going to replace this porch today. She doesn't like the fact that she has to paint it EVERY year and it also gets a lot of abuse from snow, ice and shovels. Check in tomorrow or Monday to see the finished product. I will, of course, be snoopervising from inside the house, enjoying the sunshine but not a hint of cold air. (Right now anything below 70 is cold, lol)

Mom Says

That this is a good approximation of her today when PlusOne decided that he already stopped at the stop sign (behind the car AT the stop sign) and he didn't need to stop again. THAT'S never going to happen again.

In other words, PlusOne's hearing finally came back. lol
