Yesterday I took Abbey on a shopping trip along the downton route. The Queen needed a few things at the store and, not wanting to go out, sent me and Abbey. It sure wasn't Abbey's idea of a good time being ties to a parkink meter outside the store. I could hear her whining from inside the store. The next time I have to I go shopping I'll leave the poor pupp pupy at home. She sure isn't used to being tied.
On the way home we met a gentleman and his small og. He must have been new to dogs. When Abbey and me meet another dog I like to let them have a short visit and introduce themselves and ask the owner if their dog is friendly. If the answer is positive I take Abbey over for a sniff. When i did this the gentleman said he didn't know. so I took a chance and brought Abbey over. They 2 dogs had their introductry sniff and greeted each other. I told the fellow that was a dogs way of shaking hands. He replied is that ever neat and thanked me when we left. He should be watching the Dog Whisper and learn that dogs need to be solialized.
I came up with a new landscape idea for the settler project. While looking for something in the hoard i came across a suspended cieling ligh panel. The 2foot by 4 foot panel will make a nice snowy terain, which will even have sparkly places from the frost. with some white quilting fill I have. I can use the fill for drifts. Those poor settlers will have to brave a prairie winter until I can get to the railway club for grass. Maybe they'll be able to tell my why my ancestors stayed here after experiencing their first winter. :) When I find the grass subsitute I'll be able to give them a change of seasons as well a reason for me to dust off the thing. The Queen is going to shoot me with the winchester for tsaking up a space almost as big as a desktop.Soon I'll have to look for a bigger home just for my toys.
