Blue Suede Shoes

For a squillion or so years, Dad has worn white or black sneakers. Yesterday he went wild and crazy and bought a new pair. 

Oh yeah, he bought a white pair too.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

We're going to relax while Mom is busy cleaning out the cellar and doing some more banging and drilling.
It's call a day of rest for a reason, Mom!

Super Weekend

Lucky and I plan on doing lots of sunbathing this weekend while Mom does lots of clutter cleaning. I sure hope Mom doesn't get so into it that she tosses Lucky and I out by mistake!

Yup, It's Summer

The first thing Mom did when she got home last night was put the bedroom air conditioners in and turn them on.
We're gonna sleep great now!

Mom and her BFF Blondie went out for dinner last night. They have been friends for 36 years. Can you image that in dog years? That's like a gazillion!
Anyway, the above photo was taken on Mom and Dad's wedding day. It has always been one of Mom's favorite photos of Blondie.
Here is the other.

I barked at Blondie last night. A lot. Mom told me to stop being a brat.
I wasn't being a brat. I was telling Blondie that she may have known Mom longer, but Mom loves me more.

I am not sure WHAT Mom is doing, but there has been a bunch of banging coming from the breezeway (a part of the house that connects the back porch to the garage). There was the sound of a saw and a drill and then more banging. I'm not sure I want to venture out there to see what Mom is doing. It may not be safe, lol

Mom thinks I look like a lemur in this photo.

Nah, I don't think so.

New Faucet

Mom put in a new kitchen faucet Saturday. The other one was leaking so Mom decided enough was enough. She bought one of the new fangled ones that have the hose in the faucet and with a press of a button you can get spray or stream. Putting it in was easy, as it screwed in instead of trying to use a wrench in a three inch space. Mom REALLY liked that part of it. 

As for me, well, you can see that I didn't really care WHAT Mom did as long as I was near her and in my bed.
It's such a tough life I lead. lol

Student Show

Last night was the Student Art Show at the Institute of Art where PlusOne is a student. 

Here is PlusOne by his still life titled "Moving Still Life"

 Auntie would like it and so Mom has graciously said Auntie could have it. Memere wants PlusOne's charcoal self portrait and Mom wants his oil self portrait. She said NO ONE BUT HER was getting it.
Auntie said "But of course!"
Mom has to laugh though. PlusOne's girlfriend likes this piece as well. 
Auntie vs Pretty Girl, hmmmm, I dunno about that. lol

What Do You Want, Mom?

Just because you have to wake up and go to work doesn't mean I have to get out of bed, does it?
If so, who decided that? I never agreed to that. I should have a say, after all, it's me we are talking about so I should have a say.
Just saying.

TV Thursday

So, Mom has watched several Season Finales and liked some of them. DiNozzo leaving NCIS was well done and since he's gone, so is Mom. Castle ended well although for a minute Mom thought it was going to be worse than the Sopranos ending. 
Criminal Minds ended pretty typically and that's okay, except Mom and PlusOne miss Morgan.
Hawaii Five O was okay, sort of silly, but then, so is the show. Scorpion is beyond silly but Mom likes everyone BUT Walter, lol. She loves Toby and Happy and Sylvester.
Limitless hasn't been renewed (yet?) and Mom and Dad both wish it was.
Supergirl is moving to the CW and that's fine with Mom and Dad, as they like that.
Big Bang was funny but Mom is tiring of that. Mom gave up Agents of Shield but watched at the end to see what happened. She most likely won't watch it next year. 
All that's left is The Flash and mom is REALLY mad how this week's episode ended, but she loves Cisco and can't wait to see Zoom eat dust.
So that's Mom's TV review.
What do you watch and what do you think of what happened in your shows?

It was 57 degrees yesterday. Too cold for me! Today should be a little warmer at 67 degrees. The weather guessers are saying we are going to have a HOT summer this year. 
Oh dear, I guess I can't complain about being a little cold, can I?

Enjoying The Sun

Mom and Dad worked outside this weekend, and while yesterday morning started cloudy, it ended up being sunny (but slightly chilly). It didn't matter. I still enjoyed my sunbeams as Mom and Dad cleaned the back yard.
I hope we continue to have sunny days. I am enjoying them.

Sunday, May 15, 2016

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Mom's sewing patches on gis and Lucky and I are chilling. The day can't be any better unless we moved to a sunbeam.

Super Saturday

So, Mom and PlusOne saw Civil War last night. They both liked it. They were both on Team Cap. Mom thinks Tony Stark is a dope! Black Panther is cool and Mom loves Falcon and Ant Man.

Mom got her computer figured out. She will migrate to Windows 10, she just didn't want to do it yesterday!!!
As far as Lucky and I go, we're fine, chilling and enjoying snuggling with Mom.

Friday, May 13, 2016


Somehow Microsoft forced an update to Windows 10 on Mom's computer. Mom can't find her photos and she is too tired to deal with uninstalling it. But you can bet Windows 10 will be gone real soon!

I Think

That I like having PlusOne home from school. As I get older, I like to snuggle more and any family member who has a spot for me soon finds me in their arms.
I am glad my family is so agreeable to my wishes. lol

Tattle Tale Tuesday

There should be more of this soon. today is PlusOne's last day of his freshman year of college.
OMG, can you believe it?

VET Report

According to the VET, we are very healthy and happy, with strong hearts and shiny, soft coats. I have a little problem with my spine and one back leg swings out, but it doesn't stop me too much. Lucky doesn't let much stop her, and charmed the VET and the vet tech.
We got extra treats and got to go home and be safe for another year. lol

Happy Mother's Day

This is Mom and Memere circa 1964?? lol
Happy Mother's Day, Mom, Memere and all the other mothers out there!

We're Going WHERE????

Mom is taking Lucky and me to the VET today. YIKES!
Where can I hide!

Friday, May 6, 2016


It's been raining off an on all week. I thought this was supposed to be May! You know, spring flowers May, nice weather May, sunny May. 
It's been none of the above.
Excuse me, could we have Spring back, pretty please.

Mother Nature's Staff

 PlusOne had a project for his design class. They had to do a 3D item from nature and it had to have a written component. So he made Mother Nature's staff. There is writing on the globe and it is about 5-1/2 feet long. When he walked in with it, his teacher said "Well, that's a surprise." 
He did very well on the project.
 Mom is so proud of him.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Mom's epic fail!
Mom has been trying to grow some avocados. So she put toothpicks in them, and stuck them in water. Two months later, this is what she's got.

NOTHING! To stem, root or whatever!

This one is even older.

And still nothing. Mom has gone on the internet, watched videos and everything and she has NOTHING growing.
I think that's an EPIC FAIL, don't you?

Hugging Your Dog is BAD???

Well, I'm not so sure of this. If I didn't want to be hugged, would I keep climbing in laps?

Sunday, May 1, 2016

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Mom was not able to sleep late the last three weekend days so she is TOTALLY sleeping in today. Lucky and I are planning on joining her.
We don't want her to get lonely. After all, one in the bed is not nearly as warm as three.
