Sunny, But Chilly

The mornings and evenings have been sunny but chilly. I think it's time to break out the blankies to keep ourselves warm. Is it chilly where you are?

Finally Friday

We are both thankful it's Friday, but bummed it's the end of summer. sigh It does seem that as you get older time goes by much faster.

Too Tired Thursday

I am not the tired one, Mom is. Because, well, someone and I am not mentioning myself here, might have um... how can I say this, had a little accident... just a little one, on Mom's side of the bed right before she climbed into bed. And since it was wet-ish, Mom might have had to find another place to sleep. It's not like she couldn't find a place, there is a spare bed in PlusOne's room, and besides, Mom says that's not the point. The point is... well, I don't know what the point is. Hasn't Mom every spilled anything before? Okay, so it was in bed, on her side (Dad slept fine) that's still no reason to be mad at me. Right????

Tattle Tale Tuesday

I cannot tell a lie. After the really cool, comfortable weather we've been having, a hot day like yesterday threw me for a loop. I wasn't prepared for the hot, sticky day we had. I didn't really want to cuddle with mom (unless it was in the air conditioned bedroom) so I waited until bedtime to cuddle with her. I don't think she minded.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Today's mom's birthday. Happy Birthday, Mom! This is her 2nd grade class photo. She hasn't changed much. But what I think is funny is this...

Remember that old saying that goes something along the lines of a dog and her owner end up looking alike? I dunno, what do you think?

Happy Birthday, Mom. We love you!

Hoping For A Sunny Saturday

Here's my "hopeful" expression for a sunny Saturday. Do you think it is "hopeful" enough?

Friday, August 22, 2014


I know, I know, it's a river in Egypt. It's also what I do when it is raining out. Like it was yesterday. And it wasn't just raining yesterday, it was chilly as well. Not normal August weather. While this may be God's way of preparing us for winter, I am NOT amused. And I am thinking about De Nile! Yes I am.

Thinking Thursday

Don't I look studious? I am thinking. About what you ask? Well, that's for me to know and you to find out. lol. Really, it's nothing serious. Just wondering when mom is going to let me have more green beans. It's important to know these things. I have to plan my day, after all. I hope none of you have heavy thinking to do. It is very tiring. lol

The Good News

It's NOT broken, fractured or cracked or anything else. Just sore. Phew. PlusOne was not looking forward to 6 weeks of not being able to move his thumb! lol

Monday, August 18, 2014


These are MY green beans. Aren't they nice looking? You know what the problem with them is? They are on the other side of the fence and the neighbor is EATING them! Said neighbor even posted this on Facebook!
"Love living next to neighbors that not only share their tools when we need them but also "share" their green beans through the fence"
They're MINE I tell you, MINE!

PlusOne got kicked in the hand Thursday night during sparring. The doctor thinks he may have a fractured wrist. Considering that this is really the only thing he's ever hurt/sprained during his 17-1/2 years alive, mom thinks that is pretty awesome. By his age, she had stitches twice, broke her wrist once, broke her ring finger, sprained both wrists, smashed her knee into the metal edge of a cement step, falling UP stairs, down stairs and went head over handlebars on her bicycle.

Gee, I'm amazed mom made it to adulthood!

It's been beautifully chilly the past few mornings, and boy does it feel nice! At least that's what mom says. I guess I'll be okay with it, as I am not a real big fan of hot hot hot and humid. Still, this is fall weather, and I don't think anyone here is ready for fall just yet.

Happy Birthday, Lucky

Lucky is 11 years old today!

It seems like yesterday she and PlusOne were both pups!

Now she is the princess of the house, spoiled rotten, but still sweet as can be.

Today is also the 29th anniversary of the day Mom and Dad met. Oh boy! That was like forever ago!

Can't you tell? lol

Words Mom Wasn't Ready For

Hey mom, can I take the car?

Nope, mom wasn't ready for those words at all. This is the only thing PlusOne should be driving/riding. Even Memere said she wasn't ready for PlusOne to be grown up. sigh

And to top it off, he got his first PAYCHECK yesterday as well. Waaaaaaahhh.

Wildly Opposite

Today there are two wildly opposite feelings going through us. On the one hand...

Today is Dad's birthday. Happy Birthday Dad! We love you. (Especially since you give us food that mom never would).

On the other hand
Robin Williams has died. Mom is bummed. She and Dad loved him. Mom remembers when Mork & Mindy came out, and they both watched The Crazy Ones. Mom hopes he finds peace now.

PlusOne Goes To Work-

Someone is going to work ALL DAY today, training at his new job. Boy, I am SO glad I am a pug and do NOT have to go to work. I thought PlusOne had it easy, but apparently, when you get old enough, you have to start working! I wonder if I am old enough? lol

Easy Like Sunday Morning

PlusOne had an exciting week, this week. He got a job and his driver's license. All the excitement has tuckered Lucky out.  Me too. I think we'll just sit today out. lol

Somebody Passed

Somebody got their driver's license yesterday. Look out everyone!!! lol

The Driving Test

PlusOne is taking his driving test today. Lucky and I are bummed we can't go along and be his good luck charms. Then again, mom's not going either. lol

Thursday, August 7, 2014


It was one of those days yesterday and mom is feeling blah! She really needs to be more like me!

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Mom messed up. Some of the green beans she planted are BUSH beans, not POLE! Which means I can reach them. And eat them and eat them and eat them. Heh heh heh! I am looking forward to this!

One Down

So, PlusOne passed the written portion of the driving test Friday, but they didn't have any openings for the actual driving test so he is taking that Friday. Mom expects he'll pass easily, as he is a good driver. She's not sure she can handle how quickly he is growing up. It seems like yesterday he was this little cutie patootie hanging out the car window almost like a dog, lol. Boy, time sure does fly when you blink.

Sunday, August 3, 2014


You know, looking at this photo, you would think Lucky is the most overworked dog in the world, so overworked that she passes out at the first possible moment. But I ask you, how can she be overworked? She gets carried practically everywhere. PlusOne ooohs and aaahs over her constantly, cuddling her every chance he gets. She gets all sorts of attention and petting from both mom and dad and she gets bits of cheese and crackers that I NEVER get. So I ask you again, does she look overworked to you?

Summer Is Here!!!

GREEN BEANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday, August 1, 2014


PkusOne is going to the registry tomorrow to take his written exam for his driver's license. Then it's the actual DRIVING EXAM!!! Look out everyone! PlusOne's driving!!

Actually, PlusOne drives very well. He even stopped going to school with a friend of his because the friend was driving TOO fast for PlusOne. He has also driven Memere and Pepere around quite a bit, so he is a nice, safe driver. What it really means is that he's growing up, and that freaks out mom more than anything. lol
