Trip to PetSmart

Saturday after Chistmas me and Amber took the babies to PetSmart. She got a new border collie puppy for her upcoming sweet 16th birthday. And of course I took Jethro and we trucked off to Kennesaw. The babies had a blast seeing all the stuff in the store and being admired by all the other pet lovers that ventured out to town with their furbabies. Jethro and Rudy got new name tags for their collars and a charm to go with them. Then they sacked out in the back seat of the tahoe and slept the whole way home.

Tis the Seaon To Be Jolly

Tis the season to be jolly as you can see I broke out the Christmas horse shirt for work. Even work doesn't keep me from my had me pose in front of our little office tree, she did a pretty good job........Thanks Tina......Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas I know we will.........

All in a Weekends Work

This past weekend we finally manage to get the new mattress, box springs and 2 dressers delivered on Saturday morning. Woot Woot.....We are so excited about getting them. Merry Christmas to US. We did some winter cleaning while we were rearranging the room getting it ready for the new stuff. We finally got the floor tiles down and they look great. Its amazing at how much stuff you can accumulate in 21 yrs of being married and living in a single wide mobile home. So me and Earl did some winter cleaning and got rid of a bunch of stuff. Got the flooring down, the bed up, mattress and box springs in place. Manage to get the bed made and Earl just fell back on it and his response was "OMG......this is wonderful" which translates into "I did good"

Made a late night run to the Walmart for a new feather pillow for me and then back home to jump in the middle of the bed.......Needless to say we slept so good. Best nights sleep we have had in years. And our backs felt wonderful. Which was the whole purpose of getting new mattresses. We went and did some Christmas shopping at Sackett's over in Jasper and picked up a few things then stopped at Bargin Barn on the way back. Finally got the horse shower curtain we had been wanting. It looks slowly coming together. Still have a few other things on our list of things to do in the house to be done but we are slowly getting there. Hope ya enjoy the pics.

Murray Internal Medicine Christmas Party

Peggy, Tina, Mandy, Cindy, Robin, Dr Minor, and Me
Our wonderful Chef

Robin, Peggy, and Tina

Me and Robin

Today we had our office Christmas party and it was awesome. Dr Minor took all of us to the Japanese Steak House where we sat at this little bar and they fixed our food right in front of us. It was amazing to watch. The chef was such a character he had us laughing the whole time. I opted for steak and shrimp with a side of rice. It was the best rice I have ever had. I will definitely be going back there with Earl.

After we ate we all exchanged gifts and snapped a few pics. Dr Minor gave us all a Christmas bonus and I was very touched by mine since I am low girl on the totem pole. It really is like family working there. I wished I had went to work for them years ago. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Earl goes back to the Dr tomorrow afternoon to see what his new bloodwork shows. Hopefully everything will check out alright.

Eventful Evening

Well last night turned out to be an eventul evening. It started when we got a call that our son had cut his leg at work. So we check him out, doctor his leg and come on home. After being back at home playing on the computer I decided I had to go to the store (for whatever reason in the pouring rain) and I came upon a girl that had flipped her vehicle. Thankfully she was ok and so once emergency personell arrived I was going to continue on to the country store. Being the FurMama I am I took Jethro with me so he could go for a drive with me on my jaunt to the store. Now keep in mind its cold, its dark, its pouring down rain and I have been on the side of the road being a good neighbor when I jump up in the seat and go to put it in drive AND THEN I catch a wiff of "OH NO DOGGY POO" (the last thing you want to smell in a closed up vehicle). Yes Jethro had done the deed in the Tahoe.

Not only did he do the deed in the Tahoe but in the DRIVER SEAT and not only did he do it in the Tahoe and in the driver seat but I SAT IN IT....I thought OMG this is not happening. But when I got out and looked OH YES IT DID happen.....I could not believe it. Normally Jethro is very good about stuff like that so I don't know if he just had the urge really bad or the sirens of the fire truck and ambulance scared it out of him............Trust me I have a whole new respect for SCARED THE CRAP OUT OF............because it happened to me.............

More Rain and Jethro

Well its still raining. Only now we got lightening going on so I am waiting for the thunder to come rolling in here. We have had so much rain poor Jethro thinks he needs to grow fins or webbed feet.....So being trapped in the house with Sissy and Sara (chihuahua and toy poodle) (the old girls) that don't play like they use to, has been quite boring. Having to entertain his self while daddy and brother play cards and mama is busy on the computer has been interesting to say the least. Left with his stuffed babies and chew bones has been very boring to him.
So with mama p0laying on the computer I have grabbed the camera to take some pics of Jethro being

More Rain

There seems to be an endless amount of rain in store for us here in the northwest Georgia area. We have had so much rain in the last few months its unreal. We need to build an ark on some days. But they are saying we are gonna have mixed precip this weekend.......woot woot.......we will see what happens....

Christmas Parade

Oh my gosh it was sooooooooooo cold but it was fun. Me, Earl, and Ethan along with some other family members and friends took part in the Christmas parade this year and we were bundled up like eskimos. It was 40 degrees but the wind chill was frigid. Kramer was decked out with his jingle bells and glittering hooves. We had our santa hats on and made our way thru town. By the time we got back to the saddle club I could not feel my toes. It was great to ride thru town and see all the faces of the kids waving and hollering MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of us. The floats were fabulous and the kids that took part in the parade were troopers with the temps as cold as it was. Me and Kramer jingle and jangled thru town. We had a blast.

We Got Snow

Well we got some snow even tho it was only a light dusting it was still snow. I was tickled. I love to look down thru the woods when we get any kind of snow because it seems like you can see forever. Its amazing how the snow just brightens things up. There was snow on Ft Mountain too. It was becuatiful. I hope we get a bunch more this winter.

Christmas Parade Tomorrow and Snow Tonight

Earl. Me and Kramer
Ethan and Tuff

Earl and Michelob

We are getting ready for our annual Christmas parade here in the big town of Chatsworth Georgia tomorrow night. I am so excited. I always look forward to the Christmas parade because we ride our horses in it. Break out the insulated overalls and the heat packs. Those heat packs are the best thing since cold cereal. You can stuff them things anywhere you have an opening in your clothes. Last year I had them in my gloves, down my boots, and inside my shirt. So parts of me stayed warm however the rest of me proceeded to The horses are decked out with santa hats, glitter on their hooves, and jingle bells. The horses love it as much as we do. Plus on top of being excited about the Christmas parade we are expecting a dusting of snow. For our area thats like the tooth fairy coming to visit. It is few and far between. But this early in the winter to get snow of any kind is fabulous in my book. I will post pics of any snow we get and pics from the Christmas parade tomorrow night. But I thought you would enjoy seeing some pics from last years parade.

Sunny Days

We have had so much rain this past fall, at times I thought we were gonna have to build a ark and we live on a thanks to the rain we had beautiful color this fall but it didn't last long enough. The rain came back in and beat the leaves off the trees. Some of the stubborn leaves held on but I wish we had more sunny days like in this pic I took on my way to Jyl' was beautiful. Nice mild temps and a gorgeous back drop.......

Where Do the All the Geese Go

I work part time at a Drs office and I usually go in around 12:30-1:00pm. Well as I got to work yesterday I heard the honking of alot of geese. So I look up and there is this huge V shape of all these geese. It was amazing at the formation they have. Now my question is Where do all the geese go? I mean if you think about it all kinds of bird fly south for the winter, but have you ever thought of where they all go. I use to live in Florida and have been there in the dead of winter and I don't remember being swarmed with all kinds of birds and geese. Doesn't make you wonder? So the next time you see a bunch of birds or geese heading south for the winter just stop and ask yourself where they are going...........

Sissy turns 12

November 28 my chihuahua turned 12 yrs old. Earl calls her the red headed step is a sweetheart. Of course she can be yappy when she wants to be and she does not tolerate little kids anymore. But most of the kids and adults know when they come to our house you have to be very supportive when you pick Sissy up because she has a deformed breast bone. But she is my girl.........Happy Birthday Teensy Jane.....aka Sissy

Riding a Bulldozer

Brittany, Blue and Leigh Ann

Me and Blue

I went over to a friends place the other day and I got to ride a big percheron horse. was awesome. It was like being in the clouds and riding a bulldozer. You definitely have to have a step stool to get on these boys or be very tall which I am But I could not have asked for a more gentler giant. His name is Blue and when I galloped him up the hill it was like the whole earth shook. The power this horse has is amazing. I am use to riding quarter horses so for me to get a chance to ride a gentle giant was just way too cool. The lady who owns him, Brittany Edgerton, shows at our local saddle club in the english classes with these giants and it is so graceful to watch her put them thru their moves. I was so grateful for her letting me take one of them for a test ride.
