Don't Bother Wiping Your Shoes

This is Loki. Here's the story. For awhile now I've been wanting another dog. However, I had pretty specific stipulations if I was going to have another dog because having a puppy is like having an infant, and yes, I want another child very badly, but I'll wait for that stress until I have a baby. But my ideal dog would be already potty trained but not yet a year old so I could train and raise it up with our family. It would have to love children and other animals and be able to mix into our family. I can't be a bother to anyone since we already have Sasha who so loves to lick you to death and jump up to dance with you because she gets so excited to see you. I definitely don't need 2 of those. So I've looked at the humane society, Craig's List, the paper, kept my eye out and just figured after looking forever that if God wanted me to have another dog then He would bring the dog to me. Afterall, my expectations are a little unreal. Then, on Monday, Sasha had a vet appointment and since our doggy doc was so impressed with her health and personality she offered me a dog. Whoa! And this is what we got. I know it's meant to be since it was a gift from God!
This is Loki. When he was born, he and his litter were dumped. They were wild for the first 2 months of their lives. Then they were rescued. My veterinarian has fostered him until he could find a home. He's been taken to several different places before and ended up back in foster care. He's not what he looks like. He's the sweetest, most tame, calm, respective of you, absolutely cuddly adorabley perfect. HE'S ONLY 9 months old!! And, he's already potty trained. Did I mention he's got all his shots and he's neutered? He loves to play with Sasha and will allow my daughter to roll all over him. I've never heard him bark or seen him put anything in his mouth other than food.
Now if that's not an answered prayer then I don't know what is!

R: Yeah mommy, I love you as hot as a fire in heaven.
K: *blush*

This is what we found when we walked down to the bridge. I knew it wouldn't last too long with the river being up about 20 feet. Usually it's about 20ft. below this road on the bridge. I figured we'd come back the next day and see if it's still there.
UH!? Guess it's not there today! So....where is it? (Looks like the waters went down!) This pic and the one above are taken from the same spot.
Oh! There it is! Can you tell that's the same bridge. Talk about damage. Good bye neighbors! People 'round these parts won't be stoppin' by cuz it's convenient no more.
That looks creepy.

Date night fun

Jason and I had a date night last night. Our daughter had her first real sleep over at her friend's house so we decided to go out for a good steak dinner. We chose the one and only Latham Saloon about 15 miles east of us out in the country. I would call it a one stop light town but I'm pretty sure there are no stoplights; and I can't call it a one horse town because I'm pretty sure horses and cattle are the only within miles of the town. Not one person in the place was without their buckles and boots. It was a warm friendly place and they served the best hand cut rib eye around. Places in boonies like that are very well kept secrets!

To see what Jason and I do when there's no kids around, check this out!
