All His Life He Tried...

Goodbye My Sweet, Precious Hannah...

I post this through tears and with an extremely heavy heart. Yesterday Hannah went peacefully to Rainbow Bridge.

Her tiny body could no longer fight off the ravages of this horrid incurable AIHA (Auto immune Hemolytic Anemia) disease that consumed her so quickly. We had to make the decision everyone dreads for their furbabies.
Since I struggle with the thought of taking a life, I was on my knees yesterday morning, asking the good Lord to somehow tell me we were doing the right thing. After witnessing her deterioration within a few hours, we knew we were.

This has been devastating to us and I ask that if you pray, to please continue to lift us up in prayer to help heal our aching hearts.
Also, please keep Darla and Gracie in your doggie prayers. Darla has been with Hannah since we brought them home as puppies. She is wandering around our home looking for her sister. It's heart breaking.
:> (

But I am truly grateful we have been blessed with almost 11 glorious years with her. She has taught me so much, yet never uttered a word. ♥

They Are The Champions, My Friends...

Tomorrow is Presidents Day and these two are #1 in my book!

So if you're an American and you have the day off with pay, please don't take it for granted. Remember to be grateful.

Most Know How I Feel...

about celebrities, their entitlements and how they get away with everythin' and anythin'.
I must say, I really got a giggle out of this one.

Have a great weekend, remember to enjoy nature and please continue to keep our Hannah in your thoughts and prayers.

Still No Diagnosis But...

After my hubs insisted she be put on a thyroid medication along with a steroid, Hannah went from near death's door to this!

We are still waitin' on more blood work results so she is definitely not out of the woods yet. But she is moseyin' around the kitchen and even barked today.

Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
Thank you. ♥

Prayers and Positive Thoughts Are Greatly Appreciated...

for our lil' Hannah.
She is very sick. We're waitin' for the pathology reports from her blood work.

Darla hasn't left her side. She is such a good big sister.

Have You Seen...

a lil' feller about 2 feet long, rather hairy, in need of a dental plan, stated he didn't see his shadow last Wednesday which means spring is on its way, is from Pennsylvania and goes by the name of Phil?

If so, tell him to put down the whiskey glass and look out his lil' groundhog window.
Does this look like spring is on the way?

Oh well.
Think spring and enjoy nature.
All is groovy.

I've Got A Question...

If you knew you had to sing a very important national anthem in front of 111+ million people, wouldn't you make sure you knew the lyrics to that particular song backwards, forwards and inside out?

Yeah, that's what I thought. Me too.
Unfortunately Ms. Aguilera didn't get that memo. I wonder if she ever flubbed the words to Lady Marmalade? I'm guessing Giuchie, Giuchie, ya ya dada can be quite a mouthful.
For the record, I think she has a fantastic set of pipes and is extremely talented. But last night, I was extremely disappointed. Maybe she should have written the lyrics on the palm of her hand.

Now I'm not a football fan and I don't know much about the game. But I will say I can't believe the Political Correctness BS in sports. GB Packer Nick Collins runs (which seemed like an eternity) to make an awesome touchdown and in his excitement he reacts and the ref gives 'em a penalty??

Are they afraid of hurting someone's feelings? Give me a break.
Obviously they haven't seen my reaction after getting a hole-in-one at the Putt-Putt Miniature Golf Course.
My arms and legs flail as I scream in victory. Heck, if I had cymbals I would clank them between my knees.

I don't have much to say about the Black Eyed Peas half time show. Maybe I'm too old.That whole "futuristic" thing never worked for me except for Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Next came Slash... Man, I would LOVE to take a pair of scissors to his hair. That Fergie gal is quite the looker but her singing ability is something to be desired. Unless instead of live, she's better on Memorex. Truthfully, I would have preferred to watch Tom Petty's 2008 Super Bowl Half Time Show again. OR have needles in my eyes. Hmmm... It's a toss up.

Next topic... The commercials. Three million dollars for a 30 second time slot? Really? Wow. I could think of better ways to spend 3 mill but to each his own.
So all that hype and for what? If it wasn't violent or sexually explicit it was dare I say... pure stupidity? Yep, I dare say.
I can't imagine sitting next to a wee one when the commercial for Teleflora came on. A young guy talks about his girlfriend as having a "nice rack" as Faith Hill listens. (Faith darlin', are you that desperate? You have three daughters for Pete's sake. I thought you had more class than that.)
Then there was the Doritos finger suckig', pants stealing stalker guy which totally creeped me out. HomeAway catapults a "test baby" against a glass window and a gal whips a can of Coke or Pepsi (heck I can't remember which one) and knocks another gal sitting near her clean unconscious and these are supposed to be "funny?" What is happening to our society?
As far as the majority of the others all I have to say is, "Please don't insult my intelligence."

Before someone get their wears in a wad over my comments remember... You may be right. I may be crazy. But it's just my opinion. (And I'm having a lil' fun)
Can't wait for the next Super Bowl.

It's Super Bowl Sunday...

Wonder who I'm rootin' for?

As I mentioned before I'm not a footfall fan but I hope Green Bay wins strictly because of those cheese-head hats.

Enjoy the game.

Super Bowl Funny...

I am not a football fan but I sure got a giggle out of this! (I love his skinny lil' legs)
Have a great weekend all.

The Next Time You're Feelin' A Lil' Down In The Dumps...

Repeat after me:

"I wish I was a glow worm, a glow worm's never glum.
'Cos how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum!"
~Author Unknown

Hang in there. Spring is on it's way.
