THE GOPHER MAN’S COMING!

April 30, 2008

I am sorry I haven’t blogged in awhile. I have been busy tracking Jonesy, Tinky and Sissy. They took off with Dennis in some underground contraption to find a gopher kingdom. I found out that they caught a gopher and found their way back up to the surface of the earth. I think their crew wants to interrogate the gopher before they come back. 

I have also been busy tracking a gopher in my yard. I have been trying to get a gopher out of my yard for about 2 3 months now. As you know I have tried almost everything to get rid of that gopher but everything has failed. I was hoping that Dennis and the Gopher Broke would swing by my place first and get that pesky gopher out of my yard first before they ventured out to find the gopher kingdom.

I finally gave in and called an exterminator. I couldn’t find one that was having a sale on gopher eradication  so I had to apply for a loan at my bank in order to pay these guys. They will be here Thursday with a follow up in a week from Friday. I asked them, why the follow up? Here is their answer. The gopher(s) move around and may vacate the burrow. They follow up in a week to see if they got ’em.

My bet is the gopher will still be here next month.

ICE CREAM PARTY

April 23, 2008

A few days ago mom gave us some ice cream called pralines and cream from Baskin Robbins and is it ever YUMMY!  This is sooo lip smakin’ delicious! 

I CAN GET THAT TONGUE THING GOIN’ TOO!

I THINK JONESY HAS BRAIN FREEZE. HIS EYES ARE BULGING!

SISSY, PLEASE DON’T TALK WITH YOUR MOUTH FULL!

This ice cream stuff is really dee-lishus! How do you make this stuff?

THE “REAL” RUSTY

April 19, 2008

I found the cutest picture of a Yorkie sleeping in a car seat the other day. This little doggy reminded me of my little bloggy friend Rusty at Chasing Squirrels With Rusty.  I posted the picture on my blog and all my bloggy friends agreed that this little doggy did look a lot like him. 

Rusty’s mom saw my post and thought it would be a great idea to take a picture of Rusty in a car seat too, and posted the picture on his site. Oh my gosh…..was it ever cute! Rusty is much much cuter than that old imposter.  I want to trade Tinky for Rusty. Hey, Rusty…you wanna come live in California?              

*THIS IS THE REAL RUSTY!

THIS IS THE IMPOSTER “RUSTY”

Oh my gosh, seeing all these little doggys in car seats wants me to bother my son for more grandchildren!

I LOVE YOU THIS MUCH

April 18, 2008

Here’s an award that I have never seen before. And wouldn’t you know that Beth at Around The Funny Farm would be handing this out. I love it, and I love Beth’s blog. She is a country girl in Pennsylvania, and I am a city slicker in California. We belong to “The Mutual Admiration Society”. We seem to love each others blogs. I love her humor and her lifestyle. Although I am a bit jealous because she seems to have much much more fun than I do. You should stop by her blog and say, “Hi”. And tell her I sent ya.

Isn’t This Award Cute?

I am going to post it on my Awards page. If you would like to see all my Awards, just click on “Awards” at the upper right hand side on my sidebar.

I am going to pass this Award on to some of my great bloggie friends:

  • Gina at Gina’s Public Diary. I don’t think Gina has missed one of my blog posts.  She is my most loyal reader and is the sweetest woman you would ever want to know.
  • Sharon at Hustle Hag. She is also a long time reader and she has given me numerous awards. I think I will give this cute Award to her. She is well deserving.
  • Joy at Joy of Desserts. She gets one because she is my bestest friend. She is honest, loyal, and I have learned a lot from her.
  • Mercedes at  Mercedes World. I can’t describe Mercedes enough. She is always so full of energy and must be doing a hundred things at once. She is a lot of fun.
  • Tony at TazBlog. I can’t help it, I have to give him this Award. I loooove his blog. You gotta go over there right away, he is sending Flat Tony around the world.
  • Cara at Deed Fried Apple Pies. She is a military wife and her blog is so interesting. I feel like she is my friend. We have a lot in common.

I hope you like your Award that I have bestowed upon you. Feel free to pass it along.

WHO IS THIS?

April 15, 2008

I came across this cute little picture of a doggy all buckled up and sleeping in the back seat of a car. This little doggy resembles a dog we all know and love. Let’s see if you can guess who this little guy looks like.

Let’s see…this little dog lives in Texas, loves to chase squirrels and his little human nephew. He loves Sonic drinks. He used to get into the pantry where the trash was kept by nuzzling his nose against the door. His mom had to fix that. Until they put a cat door on the bathroom, he liked to get into the kitty litter box and get him a few “tootsie rolls”. Can you guess that this looks like our little buddy Rusty?

AN AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE…

April 15, 2008

Well folks, I don’t want to bore you, but I just have to tell you I got another award! This Excellent Award was bestowed upon me by Joy of Joy of Desserts. As all of you may or may not know, we are real life friends, AND SHE STILL LIKES ME! Heh heh… Joy of Desserts is her new blog at Blogspot.  Don’t go over to her Joy of Desserts site unless you want to gain a few pounds on all those yummy desserts. My favorite is the Sprinkles Cupcake recipe that she has. They are to die for!

Anyway upon accepting this Award there are some rules.

  • Upon accepting the Excellent Blog Award, you agree to award it to 10 more people.
  • Link back to the person who gave you this awrd.

I am going to get greedy and accept this award even though I don’t have 10 people to give this to. I dont think I even know 10 people! Everyone I know has accepted this award at least once, and maybe twice and I don’t know if they would want another one.

But, maybe I missed someone, and if I did, please grab this award and run with it, plop it on your post, thank me profusely, and link back to my site.

Hey, if you want to see my Awards, just click on my sidebar where it says, “Awards”!

AND THE WINNER IS…..

April 11, 2008

As you all know, I posted a picture of a dog and asked my bloggy friends if they would like to put their own caption on the picture. I had a lot of responses which were all very funny. I tried to decide which one I liked the best so I could post the winner! I just couldn’t decide who had the best caption, so I had my co-workers decide for me.

The ballots were transferred over to the CPA Firm of Jones, Siss and Tink for their tabulation of the results. No one knows the results of the caption competition until they are opened up by me. Three envelopes have just been handed to me.  Here are the final results for the MERITORIOUS SERVICE TO THE CASE OF BLOGDOM AWARD!.

THE FIRST AWARD GOES TO DENNIS AT DENNIS’ DIARY OF DESTRUCTION!

I WOULD LIKE TO ASSURE THE VIZSLA OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE THAT I NEVER USED STEROIDS!

THE SECOND AWARD GOES TO GINA AT GINA’S PUBLIC DIARY!

“I EAT CHIHUAHUAS FOR BREAKFAST”

AND THE THIRD AWARD GOES TO BETH AT AROUND THE FUNNY FARM!

“WANTED”

If you choose to accept your award, you may copy this picture and put it on your sidebar with your winning caption! Or you may choose to ignore it and go on your merry way. There is no need to post about it or  thank me in your post.

I want to Thank everyone for playing this little game with me. This is what makes you all so special to me.
