But pac, they're so cute! Cute, that is, if you don't mind large, mischievous doggies.


If you guys are ever bored and want to look at pretty things, our niece has a website with her artwork: award-winning mosaics and photographs. You can find the site here: Cherie Bosela - Mosaic Artist - News

She has also done some jewelry. The "Shop" link at the top of her website page takes you to photos of all kinds of stuff that she's sold on etsy. She does some really neat things - especially her detailed glass mosaics. If you look at them, keep in mind that this woman had absolutely NO patience as a youngster!

I have a special spot in my heart for horses.

My granddaughter had one and she failed to look up the habits of the breed. They love to bark incessantly for no reason at all. Not good when you are only feet from your neighbor next door.

Talking I am feel on top of the world!!

I had an appointment with my vascular doctor today. I woke up in a great mood. All is well, and my blood pressure was right on! My oxygen level was at 100%. It is always around 97%. I have gained four pounds, but that is okay with me. It tells me I am eating. My sugar level was low. And I am feeling on top on the world. I am even walking without limping. My hip and spine are feeling great, and the arthritis in my fingers is non existent. It has been a long time since I felt this good. Here hoping it last for the whole day.
