Our Charlie Brown Christmas Tree   28 comments


Since the candy canes melted all over our tree decorations back in 1997, we haven’t bothered with a  Christmas tree. On a whim, we decided to put up our own Charlie Brown kind of tree last Thursday.

 

Our GA pine Charlie Brown Christmas tree

We cleaned out a corner of the living room and went to find the perfect tree. The perfect tree is the first one I saw. Easy! After finding a tall and wide vase and round stones to stabilize the tree, we begin to rummage around the house for the tree decor. We find cardboard and foil for the star and man in the moon and use three bits of foil to create round ornaments using paper clips to hang them with care. Large gaudy earrings make great light weight sparkle. I find sewing notions in red and gold to drape on the tree. Some saved silver ribbon gift packaging works great for tinsel. The tree skirt is an unfinished quilt piece. We also found three small ribbon and a few bits of fake holly leaves and berries to add to the tree.

Welcome Home Brandi: Eight is Enough   10 comments


It is no secret that I love dogs.  Our  youngest boy Otis is happy to greet Brandi before the other six dogs get to make her acquaintance.

Brandi is ready to play chase with Otis.

Brandi is a terrific young pup!

 

Enjoy your day!

Kong vs. Otis   Leave a comment


Otis is a young strong chap with impressive jaw strength.

As with all bullies, he needs a durable fun toy.

The Kong never had a chance.

 All About Animals is a no kill shelter for dogs and cats in Macon, GA. The ‘new’ address is 101 Riverside Drive Macon GA 31201.

Let me introduce a few of my friends in need of a forever home.

Marigold is full of love. She is a self admitted lap dog. She does get lonely if left unattended, but who can blame her?

Julius is ready to go home with you. He is a playful boy.

  I cannot recall this funny guy’s name. The picture sums up the happy-go-lucky attitude.

Leo is outstanding. How can you resist such a handsome fella?

Miles is a hunk of a dog! He has lots of energy.

If you are interested in sponsoring, fostering or adopting a cat or dog in the Macon area, I suggest you e-mail All About Animals for more information on all their furry friends waiting for you. The address is allaboutanimalsmacon@yahoo.com. The phone number is 478-621-5116. The All About Animals web address is www.allaboutanimalsmacon.org.

I am so excited about our latest rescue friend. His name is Otis. He will be in-house Saturday! Lucky number 7.  We met Otis while helping spruce up the new shelter Saturday afternoon and fell in love. End of story.

Enjoy your day!

I have six rescue dogs that have been found all over the southeast one by one over the past 13 years. Fishfood found us in the spring of 1998 on a Houston, TX side street. Dinahmite came to us as a tiny puppy from the mountains of East Tennessee in the summer of 2000. Brutus whirled into my life shortly after the disaster left by Hurricane Katrina in late summer of 2005. Tiger made his début to the pack due to his lack of interest in hunting wild boars in middle Georgia . The choose was simple. Tiger got a bullet or he join me in spring of 2007. Roger, a Georgia street dog, decided that I would make a better home than under the bushes in the spring of 2008. Willow wiggled her way in by surprise attack. At a flea market in Georgia, I stooped to pet a vendors puppy to realize that she was free to a good home. Willow being a full-blooded pit made her a target to an unkind life style. Willow fell right in with the other five of my pack mates in the fall of 2009.
