And a WHITER Christmas??

Just listened to the news and they're upping the snowfall prediction -- now 14-20" and some areas will receive more!! Wow...... nothing more to say than -- wow...... Sounds like a LOT of shovelling to do.

A White Christmas?

We don't get those around here too often -- but the weather reports are now calling for a "significant winter snowstorm" in our area, with 10-15 INCHES predicted, and locally heavier accumulations of 15-20" !!!! Wow........ We may end up with snow for Christmas for the first time in many, many years......

Congrats to Morgan and Solomon!

After dating for nearly 4 1/2 years, it's finally official -- Morgan and Solomon became engaged last night! Congrats to both of them! No details for wedding plans yet -- a bit too soon to know. But we will share as plans and dates are set. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures!

Solomon took Morgan out to a very fancy restaurant, rather late in the evening, so by the time they came home and we took these pictures, they were both pretty excited AND tired, as you can see in the pictures!!

Sick and tired of being sick and tired!

Sorry for the lack of postings recently -- I've been "trying" to get sick since last Friday. On Monday I took Mackenzie to a field trip at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, and one full day of activity was all it took to kick the "trying to get sick" into "really being sick". Yuck......

So right now, my world is only the living room sofa and lots of soda and hot tea, trying to break up the gunk in my throat and head. Good thing for the internet, because it's the only way I can "talk" right now!!

Cool picture

On Sunday, I took a bunch of pictures at Mackenzie's Polka Kids dance show at Blobs Park. One of the pictures turned out really strange -- but I kinda like it! Over the years, more than 400 kids have learned how to dance polkas with this group -- so we're calling this rather unusual picture "The Ghosts of Polka Kids Past"!!

Taylor's Grand Adventure!! -- Comical!!

This will probably be a bit long, but it's entirely too funny not to share! So, sit down, grab a hot chocolate or a cookie, read, and enjoy a good laugh at our expense!!


Our family had a lot of things going on today, which necessitated everybody being out of the house for most of the day. We worked everybody's schedules so that somebody would drop by the house every few hours, check up on the dogs (especially Taylor, now 6 days post-spay), and take the dogs out to do their business.

My hubby called me after lunch and said, "Sorry you spent so much money on Taylor's operation -- because I just killed her!!" Uh-oh, not a good way to start the conversation........

He came home mid-day and took Taylor out for a walk (with a retractable leash) around our court. When he got to the end of the court, Taylor pooped in the neighbor's yard. Hubby leaned down to clean it up, and as he did so, the breeze blew, sending a large leaf skittering across the road. Taylor decided to chase it! Unfortunately, since my hubby was leaning over, he was off-balance when Taylor hit the end of the retractable leash, pulling it out of his hand. She ran a short distance, stopped, then looked back and saw the retractable leash "chasing" her!! She took off running again! When she would run, the leash would lengthen, but when she'd slow down and look back, it would start to retract, looking like it was gaining on her -- so she'd get scared and take off again! She ran around the court, then cut across the court and got the leash caught on the wheel of our 50-gallon recycling container which was out on the curb. She was going so hard and fast that she pulled over the container and now was dragging IT along behind her, too!! She ran through the front yard with leash and can in tow, made a hard turn and finally got the recycling container caught on a tree in our front yard, which stopped her!! My husband says by the time he caught up with her, she was shaking uncontrollably, and once he got over being mad at her for not listening, he couldn't stop laughing!!

Oh, my, what I would give to have had a video camera going for THAT fun time!! Now if THAT doesn't pull out her stitches, nothing will!! (And I TOLD that stupid vet she was extremely high-energy!!! I wasn't wrong!!)
