One week until Peyton has brother

One week from today one of these good-looking boys will be coming home to us. Susie said "I love them all" so that should let you know how far we've narrowed it down! Green Boy (Checkers) Is such a ham.     Purple Boy Is very reserved and laid back.   Black Boy Is a cuddle bug and lover, but will go and do anything you want him to do.   White Boy Is playful and ready for fun.     Light Blue Boy Is a sweetheart and is very mellow and laid back.   Read more

Memorial Weekend at Niobrara State Park

We had never camped at Niobrara State Park and spent four nights there over Memorial weekend and really enjoyed it. It is a big park with a lot of hills and great views with a nice campsite at the bottom of it. We had some friends camping there and also met several new people. Our routine was pretty much the same every day - hike in the morning, have lunch at the campsite and relax, eat too much for dinner, then ... Read more

Duncan – Heaven just got a little crazier

On Tuesday Duncan decided it was time he left us on his own terms and headed to see Ms. Bailey at Rainbow Bridge. His back legs were weak and internal problems were causing him pain, but he was classic "Duncan" even on his last day on Earth. I took him to the vet at noon and x-rays showed that his spleen was very enlarged and the vet said it could rupture if it got any bigger. At 13 1/2 years old and ... Read more

Carmel Vacation – Coastal Drive and Fisherman’s Wharf

On Tuesday the women went to downtown Carmel for some shopping and the guys took a drive south along the coast and grabbed some lunch. Craig, Rick, and I were in a convertible and toughed out the cool drive along the ocean. There were a lot of old bridges along the drive which was neat. We ate at restaurant along the coast and watched and listened to big waves hitting the rocks. That evening we went down to Fisherman's Wharf in ... Read more
