Rain, Rain Go Away

There is nothing to do when it is pouring rain outside. And I mean POURING. Sigh. Well, at least tomorrow is April and MAYBE we will start getting some decent weather. Then again, the old rhyme of April showers just may be spot on. Phooey!

Trying To Be Easy Like Sunday Morning

Lucky is fed up with the bad, nasty, cold, miserable, NOT SPRINGLIKE weather. I can't say as I blame her. sigh

Mom's A Liar

You know that photo of me enjoying the sun yesterday? Well, there was no sun, yesterday. Only rain. There was some sun on Thursday, so mom was hoping Friday would be sunny, but nope! No sun. So Mom's a liar. Plain and simple. I am sorry to break it to all you. I know you probably thought better of her that that. Sigh. It breaks my heart as well.

Fabulous Friday

Yup, any day with sunshine is a fabulous day. Especially when it is a Friday!

Thankful Thursday

Lucky and I are very happy that this storm (nor'easter) stayed south and east of us, nailing Cape Cod and missing us completely. Except for the wind. I swear Lucky and I would have blown away without Dad, PlusOne and Mom to look after us when we were outside. Thank goodness for them!

Blogger Pain Tuesday!

Well, turns out it wasn't mom's fault. It was Blogger. All of a sudden they don't want to upload videos. Pains! Mom had to upload this to yout#be then embed it here. lol

Recital Monday

PlusOne had his annual spring recital with his cello teacher yesterday. Here he is. Meanwhile, Lucky and I stayed home and slept in the sunbeam. That was nice. I hope we get more sun!

Oops, guess the video isn't working. Will try again when mom gets home. sigh.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Today we are going to PlusOne's cello recital. Or rather, mom, dad, memere, and pepere are going to PlusOne's cello recital. We get to stay home and sit in the sun, if there is any.

Saturday, March 22, 2014

Oh Saturday

Oh Saturday, you showed up at the exact right moment. Too bad you can't stay around, for like a week or two.
PS Happy Anniversary, Memere and Pepere! 27 years, that's awesome!

Tired Thursday

Mom is feeling tired and blue, so we are going to snuggle with her. After all, almost everything can be cured by a good night's sleep next to a warm pug.

Pet Peeves

One of mom's biggest pet peeves is poor grammar. Bad spelling, poor punctuation and not knowing the difference between there, their and they're, as well as are, our, your and you're drives mom bonkers. She received an email today that took the cake. Mom had asked  the manager of their sister store when she could log in and work on one of the computers. The reply she received went like this:

Ok there on do OhTwoEight (the computer's name) first that is Roberta's blah blah

It seriously took mom a minute to realize the message was saying this: Ok. They're on the computer now. Do OhTwoEight first blah blah.

Which didn't solve the question of "Could she get onto the computer in question?" because if they were on it, mom couldn't log in. Mom decided she was just going to wait and deal with the problem late. Sounds good to me.

YOUR friend, from way up here in cold New Hampshire, sending this out THERE to all my wonderful blogger buddies and THEIR families hoping THEY'RE all staying warm,.

Happiness Is

Green beans for your birthday. (Preferably garden grown super fresh green beans, but when it's the middle of the winter, I'll take what I can get.)

PS Happy St Patrick's Day

Hoping For A Sunny Saturday

It has been cold and windy lately. Lucky and I want some nice, sunny weather. I don't know if we'll get it, but we're hoping. I have not given up hoping for green beans either. I'll keep you posted on whether or not I get them.

Keeping An Eye On Mom

I am keeping an eye on mom, waiting to see if she pulls out a bag of green beans JUST FOR ME. So far, there has been no sign of them, but then mom doesn't do the grocery shopping, dad does. Hmmm, I may give her one more day and then I will shred every kleenex in the house, and believe me, we have at least 5 boxes downstairs and 3 upstairs. That's a lot of kleenex to shred, but I'm up to it. After all, I AM the Devil Dog!

Ticked Off Thursday

I am no longer worried that my mother forgot my birthday. I am now ticked off that my mother forgot my birthday, How DARE she forget me. ME! The love of her life! The apple of her eye! The object around which her life revolves! I am mad. I am incensed. I am ticked off. And I don't think I will forgive her any time soon. Especially since she has NOT made it up to me in extra treats or green beans!

Worried Wordy Wednesday

Yesterday was my BIRTHDAY and Mom FORGOT!!! Can you believe it? She FORGOT!! Should I be worried? Is she planning on getting rid of me? Re-homing me someplace else because I keep getting into trouble food that she doesn't want me to eat? Because I maybe sometimes every now and then misbehave? I am so worried. I am now TEN years old, double digits, maybe mom doesn't want me anymore???

Tattle Tale Tuesday

You're never to old to enjoy a box, or a tiara.

 To get a hug from your pug

Or from your dad!

Mom wants to know why it is that Lucky and I are loved more than some people's children, and many more people! PlusOne's girlfriend threw him a surprise birthday party yesterday (it was a rousing success) but at the party were two of PlusOne's friends and they can only be described as unloved. (One of them told mom they weren't loved because of the price tag involved. Can you believe it?)

Mom doesn't get it. She knows that she and Dad may not be the most perfect parents (who is) but they sure love PlusOne and he knows it. He is secure in that love. These kids were not. It makes mom mad and sad. I guess mom shouldn't be surprised, if people throw their pets away because they are "difficult" or "untrainable" then it isn't much of a stretch to figuratively throw a child away because they are "different" or "high maintenance".

Daylight Savings Time

I do NOT like Daylight Savings Time. I don't like ANYTHING that takes away an hour of my precious sleep. How dare they! Give it BACK! NOW!

Sleepy Saturday

I think that PlusOne should stay home from karate (hard to use those hands of his, all scratched up like they are) and stay in bed and sleep late with us. What do you think?

Friday, March 7, 2014


PlusOne slipped on ice or tripped on the broken walkway at his friend's house and went flying, landing on his hands! Mom was in the car waiting, (seatbelt on) so she couldn't get out of the car fast enough to get to him. He sat in the back seat with his girlfriend so she didn't see how bad his hands were until she picked him up for cello lesson. It was a very gentle lesson. OWWWW!

It's Cold!

It's cold, so I am heading to bed early and staying there, where it is nice and cozy. I wish mom would stay in bed with me, but she has this dumb work thing going on. Work. Phooey. Just like cold, phooey. I want the lamb March is supposed to be and not the lion it is being now.

Mom has been blogging since August 18th. 2007. Almost seven years, can you believe it? This is the first photo mom posted. It shows Lucky swimming.

What you can't really see, is that Lucky is swimming really, really well! Amazing, huh? I do not like to swim. At ALL! Can you tell?

Yeah, mom had to carry me out of the water. sigh. Oh well, I am great at other things. As I am sure you are all aware.

Happy Birthday PlusOne!

PlusOne is seventeen today. Mom can't believe it. She blinked and now look at him. sigh. Happy Birthday PlusOne!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Yup, it's Sunday morning and I am doing my typical chilling. Hope you are able to do the same!

Oh My, March

It's March! Which means spring is around the corner (actually they are predicting snow Monday), but I am going to ignore that and dream of spring. Yup, I'm gonna dream about warm sunshine as I lay out on the cement in the backyard. Sounds nice, don't you think?
