By the time she left there were 4 balls, a rawhide chew, a scarf, my Dead Fred Pencil Holder, 3 highlighter pens, 6 torn up tissues, a stuffed cat and dog, two half eaten biscuits, an empty water dish (dumped for the umpteenth time), a snow boot and several pieces of paper all over the floor. We had fun.
Oh, sweetness! Jack Russels are a LOT of work!

That was in just two hours and I took her out twice for a wee bit...I finally figured out how she tells me she's gotta go. She gets really quiet and I have to turn tolook at her and she just sits staring at me. We made it all the way outside the second time First time, the rug inside the door got wet.

Oh, geez, Addie. This is the new scam du jour. Scammers sound like desperate relatives (Gramma, my wallet's been stolen and I'm in an Italian jail) and try to get money from unsuspecting seniors. Hang up!

Smart dogs are, how shall I put it, difficult. I had a Siberian husky. She was really smart and she was such a bitch. She knew she wasn't supposed to chew her leash, so when we had a visiting husky, she chewed through his leash. I was very fond of her even if she was a bitch.

I've been asked to speak at our youth Service Conference (which I coordinate lunch and dinners for) regarding hospitality as a way to serve others. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I have spoken to the youth group several times before, but usually with my hubby and smaller groups. There will be around 30 teenagers, their 20-something leaders and a few adults who wander in to see what is happening. Probably close to 50 in total!

My smile is that to them I am not just a pretty face, um cook!
