I hope we made the right decision to complete the canal … Continue reading What a trip!

He sat stone quiet as his face turned ghost white. Sensing that he hadn’t planned anything, I sat quietly, enjoying every minute of his dilemma and wondering how he … Continue reading Didn’t Celebrate Mother’s Day At My House
It takes several blogs to cover my interests. Below are the links and brief descriptions: 1.

The day after Christmas, 2012, a Thursday, our ‘new guy’ was transported from Georgia. Southeast German Shorthaired Pointer (SE GSP) Rescue picked him up from a Tennessee county shelter so they knew nothing about his history. Time stood still the first weekend GB came to live with us.
