It Was Hard To Say Goodbye To Socks

Have you ever gone against the rules and did something totally bizarre....  ???

 I always wanted a house pet.  Preferably a dog.  But my landlord at the time said, "NO PETS!"

It was the summer of 2003 I believe...  and Gary's daughter Athena was with us.  While he worked, Athena and I visited the pet store.


"Please, lets get him... Please... look at those eyes!" she begged. I was too busy looking at her eyes.
  
I knew it was a bad idea, but I did it anyway. We named him Socks.... and he was with us for a total of three hours, then we returned him to the pet store  from whence he came...  thanks to the level headed advice of my hubby who insisted we'd get found out and end up living in the streets for disobeying our landlord's no pet's rule.


It was hard to say goodbye to Socks... 
 He was so adorable!!


And I am such a pushover.  

Mondays Mug: Noah's Ark

Mondays Mug:  Sight and Sound Theatre 

 Noah's Ark


This mug has high priority and has been my coffee mug for many years. 
 It was an experience I will never forget.  
Have you ever gone to the Sight and Sound Theatre?  There is one in Branson, MO and one in Lancaster PA.  We were able to catch Noah's Ark while it was still playing in Lancaster.  

It was an incredible experience and 
when I left the theatre I could hardly speak!!  

Luke 17:26  And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
