Dinahmite, always out front and Tigerbuddy, her partner lurking.

 

 

 

In March 2013,  Dinahmite was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. We celebrated her 13th birthday in May.  July 11,2013 Dinahmite passed.

In August of 2014, Tigerbuddy was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease. The vet gave Tiger a medicine called Vetoryl 60mg. Give 2 capsules once a day. Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 10:15AM when Tigerbuddy went to play with Dinahmite. Tiger had a horrible reaction to Vetoryl which in turn hastened his death.

 

To whom may read this: Cushing’s disease in dogs can be treated with proper guidance and your dog friend can live years more.

I have not been very active on my blog due to too much to list.

Love you both.

 

Enjoy your day!

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.

I decided to make some paper candy canes for our little Charlie Brown tree.

Thankful Friends: Thanksgiving 2012   39 comments


To all those that celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you all are still eating tasty left-overs.

Our small family of five will never forget Thanksgiving 2012!

Before I get to the always delightful Lucca photos let me share a few fall photos from our yard.

 

 

Now for precious, Lucca…

Lucca has an extensive marble collection.

 

 

Lucca is helping repair a lost track from her toy earth mover.

 

 

 

 

The next pic is of Uncle Andy cover monster!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shortly after discovering Uncle Andy, it is time for a nap.

 

While she slept I could not resist the sweet angel face pics a few silly posed photos!

 

 

 

I hope everyone gets time to take a nap!

Enjoy your day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friends Reconnect   22 comments


 

 

Since all of us could not be at the first memorial ride for our friend Jason A. Baines in Lexington, KY Sunday 11/11/12, we did the next best thing we could muster. Sarah and Winnie came to Macon to visit both us and Winnie’s family who happens to live in Macon.

I looked through over 10 years of photos to find the treasures of photographic history of our lives together. Now I must learn how to scan photos, which I am told is pretty simple.

The photos in this blog are from the Macon visit with Winnie and Sarah.

 

Sarah has badass bike skills and many medals in her pocket.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for the pictures that I should have a tripod for instead of all these photos. But it was still fun to try to remember which person needed to take which photo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The bright spot in the recent gloom was the all too short but invigorating visit with long time friends.

 

Enjoy your day!

 

 

Goodbye   7 comments


In honor and memory of Jason A. Baines 1971-2012:

Do not be mad…

Please not forever sad…

Know I ride free..

Just on another journey…

Wheels keep on turning…

Written by me with your wise voice with me: Our beloved friend/mentor/big brother and all around bad-ass person. Ride in peace and thank you for you! We love you.
