Happy New Year!

Hungry Eyes

My Father doesn't seem to mind that his Joe keeps a close eye on his plate.

Joe's reaction was much like mine as the day progressed and there was no electricity.  The Houston area endured high winds last night and today resulting in numerous power outages.  So no Christmas dinner at home this year,  Dad and I went out to eat but we made sure to bring home doggy bags.

There's Always Holiday Drama

 You try and make nice and feign interest.
 But then someone brings up the past or says something wrong.
 The head butting starts.
 Then it escalates to outright violence.
There's just no making nice.

Okay I Love Joe Too!

Off The Road

 I took my Father and my babies on a road trip to the hills of Arkansas last week.  It really kicks my butt.  I have a newly discovered respect for people traveling with children.
We left here in rain and it rained for over half the trip.  I had to keep telling myself that the area needs rain bad.  During the week, the weather was mild and then turned frigid within 12 hours with wind gusts over 45 mph.  There was a bit of flying snow but it had been too warm to amount to anything on the ground.  Joe was glad to be at his home and have the run of a huge yard.  My girls loved the cooler temps.  Lucy struggled with all the stairs.  Her arthritis is quite evident in these cases.  We had a gorgeous day for travel back to Texas yesterday.  It's good to be back and have the trip behind us.
It seems like the holidays are over for us now.

Have A Happy Weekend!

Running Fits!

Run, run, Rudolph, Joe is what I found myself singing at the dog park as I watched.  As long as he has been living with us, he still shuns us in public.
 He does a "run by"  just so we know he's still in the park; I suppose.
He's like this for an hour or so.  Then if no new faces show up he slows down a bit.

Hot Dogs By The Fire Pit

It finally turned a bit cooler here this week.  I had been wanting to have a fire in my cheap little pit from Lowes that I've only used 3 times in as many years;so tonight I got home from work early enough to get it started.  I would welcome many more weeks like this one this winter.  I know the pooches would be equally happy too.
