Peek a Boo

She is so beautiful. Just look at the color of her eyes, If I didn’t know better, I would say that had been photo shopped. It doesn’t really matter though, because the picture is beautiful to look at.

I have always loved horses. Most girls do as kids, and then when they grow up, become ambivalent about them. I have retained that love and always will have it.

Pets Dying

Unfortunately part of being a loving pet owner, is losing them to death. It is like a part of your family, and a piece of your heart goes with them. One of the cats my Mother, “rescued”, meaning she snatched it off the street because she didn’t think it was safe with the family that had it, died this week.

He was run over by a car, and she has been very distraught. We all have, but none of us, but her had the courage to go scrape him off the road until today. Thankfully Little Uno is now buried, close to our house in the woods. We will miss you Uno, you will be missed.

Martha Stewart

Recently I was watching some old episodes of the Martha Stewart Living show. The one that I particularly enjoyed was the one where she featured animals that have been know to possess high IQ.  This was a fascinating segment.  I was surprised to see this type of topic on her show.  To my knowledge Martha Stewart rarely features animals on her shows.

During this particular segment she featured camels, parrots and multiple other animals found in Madagascar.  The animals featured from Madagascar were mostly from the Marsupial family.  The parrot featured was able to tell the differences between shapes and colors.

The part of the Marsupial family of animals that makes them super intelligent are their tails.  As for the camels I cannot recall what their “specialty” was.  All I recall from the camels was that the camels with one hump are from the Middle East while camels with two humps are traditionally found in China.

Birds Talking Smack

I do not know why I think this is so funny, but it makes me laugh. I guess because there are always people who want to call other people names.

Sometimes I get into a spirited discussion – well, sometimes it is a full blown argument, I admit – and when someone starts calling names, that person who is calling names is the loser of that discussion.

No A/C

Now that it has gotten real hot and humid, the air conditioning on my Tahoe has decided to go out. I am not sure how much it will cost to get fixed but I have to get it in the shop to find out.

None of our vehicles right now has working air conditioning and that is a bad deal all the way around. It was 95 degrees today and they say that it is going to be even hotter tomorrow, I have to get the air conditioning fixed in one of our vehicles soon.

Each summer we hear stories about people leaving their kids or their pets in their cars during the extreme heat. It breaks my heart. I don’t understand why anyone would think that this would be acceptable. I think that those who are found guilty of this type of behavior should be punished in the same manner as the victim was treated.

Animal Voiceovers

I couldn’t stop laughing at this. I have always loved watching nature videos but when you add a human context to them it makes it ten times more enjoyable! I guarantee that anyone watching this will laugh at some point. If they don’t then they must not have any sense of humor. The large white birds laughing are my absolute favorite!


As a kid, one of the best things about Sunday was getting the Sunday newspaper and pulling out the comics section. On Sundays the comics were printed in color! And most of them were 3 or 4 times as long as the ones in the daily newspaper.

My favorite comics included Peanuts and Garfield. How interesting that my favorites are about a dog and a cat? I just realized that!


I love the new Expressions look. I can take the wrappers off of the spray bottles and leave them out, and you can’t really tell right away that it is a spray can. The different user looks really good sitting on the table as opposed to a plug in stuck in the wall. The Starlit Evening fragrance is my favorite for now, but I have so many to try yet.

I am going back to Walmart next week when I do the grocery shopping and see what others I can try. One of the best parts is that it helps significantly with the smell of the dogs when they come in from the outdoors. I am always trying to get rid of the dog smell in the house and this makes it much easier.


This is one of the most beautiful colts I have ever seen. I absolutely love his markings. They are so unique.

I will bet that he will sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. I hope to one day see pictures of him after he has grown up. I am sure that I will. He is like living art to look at. I just love horses.

Stalking it’s prey

It almost looks like it is stalking you from the picture. I love cats and big cats look so cuddly even thought they are not remotely so. Sometimes though, I still want to give them a great big hug.

I envy the people who work with these kinds of animals and get to do exactly that.
