Random Tuesday Thoughts 7/13/10

Hi Everyone.  Thanks for stopping by.  I'm playing along with Keely today on RTT.  Check her out!

Meet Bonnie and Clyde.  Bonnie is the black and tan one.  So last Tuesday I was getting my hair done (what gray?) when I got a call from the rescue.  Jackie had just rescued as many dogs as she could but there were these two puppies scheduled to die at 1:00 (it was almost noon).   I couldn't let that happen.  So they are at our house.  They are freakin' adorable!

Puppies are a lot of work.  I called the rescue today and asked (sarcastically, of course) "do you know how much work two puppies can be?"
They don't feel sorry for me.  They have 17 puppies at their house.  And there's no room at the shelter.  That's why they needed a foster home for these two.

A five and a half hour drive takes a lot longer than 5 and a half hours when two of the five people in the car have diarrhea.

We went to a wedding this weekend.  It was the son of hubby's cousin (which makes him his second cousin, I think).  So the kids wanted to know how they were related to the groom.  The best I could do was "kin".

While in Kansas we visited on the the "Seven Wonders of Kansas" as voted on by Kansans and listed in a magazine or something.  It was Chicken Annie's.  Chicken Annie's and Chicken Mary's are both famous, must-stop chicken houses in Pittsburg, Kansas.  We always went to one of them when visiting Hubby's grandma.  But it's been years since we'd been there.  Not sure the kids were all that impressed, but I was really glad we went.

I'm ready for school to start.

Thanks to all the facebookers who voted for Hope Rescues in the Chase Community Giving challenge.  They were able to pick up one of the $20,000 grants.  But they won't have the money for about 6 weeks.  In the meantime, donations are down over 70% and they have lots of vet bills to pay.  Any fund-raising ideas would be most appreciated.  If you have a good idea, let me know and I'll pass it on.

That's it for me.  If you'd like a puppy, let me know and I'll hook you up!
And go see Keely!

Damn those are cute pups. But no, I don't want one. You know me, I get to play with twenty to thirty dogs a month. That is enough.
