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.




Enjoy your day!

The Garden   4 comments

The garden will soon be level with rich soil.

 Lasagna layering in the garden is a great way to create productive vegetable growth as the compost continues to decompose.

    We decide one more truck load of top soil will suffice with  Jungle Growth dirt purchased at Lowes.

Hearty grows wishes to our potatoes, red cabbage, brussels sprout, red and sweet carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens, rutagaba plants, butter crunch lettuce, red and sweet onions and the asparagus bed!

Otis is a big help!                                             

 The garden is happy. Enjoy your day!

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.

Fireside Sunday Dinner   Leave a comment

Ummmm…Sunday dinner. What’s it going to be? Let’s start with a recipe from ” Joy Of Cooking” page 583. My version of the casserole-roasted chicken with forty cloves of garlic satisfied all four of us. This is a picture of a new recipe to me for red and sweet potato au gratin.   The foiled covered pan below is the garlic roasted chicken.

I round the meal out by opening some garden grown and canned peanut beans from my Mom’s garden and a bunch of sautéed spinach and buttered bread complete the meal. The fire is a nice addition to the lovely aromas wafting from the kitchen.

A fun evening indeed!

 How can a person not like dogs?   

The pic of Tiger below is enough to melt anyone’s heart.

This is a question that I can only think of a few justifications. Maybe a traumatic incident with a dog would make a person harbor ill will towards the canine breed. My other opinion is the person is not a caring individual.

Let me show you smart wonderful dogs I am luck enough to call my friends.


  The picture of the first dog was a friend we met in Yatesville, GA. He has a home, but loves to visit with passers-by.

      Jr does not understand why he can only look in the window and not be inside with the six-pack of dogs. Rescue animals or give to rescue groups.
