Agree with Finn, this deserves a bump.

Why?

Well, when it comes to storms, my girl, Angie's safety comes first, my animal friends, second, and my own third.

Why?

Well, not sure about the cat, but I know the dog would put his life on the line for us, never giving it a second thought.

How can I owe him any less?

It's all about love.

He loves us without question, without motive, unconditionally...just because.
We owe them!

Dogs are the best people!

Sorry you're still sick...darn. I figured
you'd be up and fiesty by now. Did they say
why your ears are doing that??
Everything here is about the same..just
hanging in there, you know.
Well, Girl, you better get better soon or
how will you get back to Colorado? Maybe,
maybe you could check in here a bit more often?
There are people on here who miss you and you
don't need to hear to be able to stop in and
say Howdy, right?

{{{{{{Finn}}}}}! Sorry, I rarely make it to my blog anymore. FB keeps me busy. LOL I hope you're well, and ty for the bumps :)

{{{{{Katttttttt}}}}} My sister-from-another-mother! I am sorry I haven't called but I can't hear out of my right ear and am deaf in the left. lol I went to the ENT yesterday 'cause I'm still sick. Between the coughing and not hearing (no vibration of the left eardrum at all), it's very difficult to have a telephone conversation. How are you?? How's your friend?

Hey, Girl..Happy 4th of July!!

I hope everyone keeps their dogs safe during
the fireworks. It's really scary for a lot
of dogs and so many of them run away and get
hurt or picked up and taken to the pound.
They won't mind staying home this one night.

I understand crazy..and busy!! There's no
deadline..I'm just so happy to see you on
here again. I don't go on Facebook, so you
were just invisible to me. Missed you.
Call when you're not crazy..oh, wait..then
you could never call..LOL..Call when you've
got a few minutes to relax. Yeah..that's
better.:-)

Oh, man..you didn't even get "the probe"?
That's just sad. You are right...not enough
laughter going on. Well, if you ever do decide
to return a phone call, I will be on the
other end of the line for you.:-)
Major, Giant, Colorado HUGS to you, Girl!!!

Kaaaaaaat, my long-lost sista-from-anotha'-motha'! Oh, how I've missed you! I'm so sorry I haven't called back - I do think of you very often, Don can attest to that. My mom doesn't even hear from me until she e-mails to say that she's hunting me down if I don't call her. lol

{{{OGal}}} Great to "see" you, too! Nick is doing wonderfully, he just got back from a few days in Grapevine (outside Dallas) with his dad & dad's family. He got to see my sister & her husband while up there because my parents were up at the same time - he actually rode back with them. lol He has a very busy summer, helping my dad with yard work & lots of band camps. :) Thankfully, he is still an awesome kid even at 15!

I'm doing o.k. My positive, optimistic attitude isn't as prevalent as it used to be, but it is definitely still winning the battle over the pessimistic & negative. It's probably time to bring out the big guns - like laughing so hard with CoKat that the neighbors consider calling the men with the white coats that tie in back, or like kind words from you! This is the best I've felt all day, and I mean that :)
