Suck It Up... And Enjoy!


Is It Possible To Teach an Old Dog New Tricks?


Dear Dan Flanders,

My name is Gracie and
 I'm six years young.  
My dilemma started last
 week when I visited what 
I thought would be an 
enjoyable and fun
 Dog Park in Frostburg.  
I ran and I played 
and soon became tuckered out. 
Enter Miss Goody-Two- Shoes 
with her Newly washed and 
styled puffy white fur and shy
 little 'are you talking to me?' attitude.
  After smelling her out, 
I did a brief little snap at her 
nose, just to make 
sure she understood who 
was boss.

She didn't. 

Now I'm going to Obedience School.
 How can I get out of this?

Sincerely, Desperate Dog 




Dear Desperate Dog,

You can't be terrorizing other dogs!
 It's in the doggie rule book.  
Take a look at yourself in the 
mirror and tell yourself you're 
better than that

Now suck it up... and enjoy! 
You might like it...

Dan Flanders


Ready for School

Dear Diary,

Note to self:  To get even with Mom for airing my dirty laundry on blogs and Facebook....  Remember to just act opposite of how she says I am.  She'll keep shaking her head and trying to explain to everyone that I really am aggressive and socially retarded.  But nobody will believe her.  

Obedience school was good. 

 And I think Mom learned a thing or two.  

Gracie.



Monday's Mug

 I'm noticing that some of the blogs I visit have themes according to the day of the week.  

I like that.  

That is why I'm putting aside Monday's to tell you about my mugs...  the ones I've collected and  displayed on the ledge above my kitchen cabinets.  


They hadn't been down in... forever.



I found a dead bug in one.  

Time to give them all a bath.




Today's feature mug:

These, hubby found at an antique store 
when we first met.  

He fell in love with them 

and they represented him, 
with his daughter Athena

 and me, 
with my daughter Lindsey.
