Sharp Ears

I don't know if anyone else has a dog that hears this intensely but I have to share about my dog Katie. She can be in the kitchen or living room laying on her bed taking a nap and I can as quietly as possible pick up my walking shoes to put them on. I don't know how she knows but as I walk to the couch in my bedroom to put my shoes on... I hear her up and whining at the door. She has learned that when I put my tennis shoes on it is time for a walk. I've tried over and over again to not make a sound but somehow she hears me every time! Anyone else have a dog that hears everything that goes on?

Cause for Thought

My father celebrated his 90th birthday on Sunday. It's a real miracle since he had a quintuple by-pass a few years ago. No one in his family has lived past 50 due to family health history. So it's a miracle for him to celebrate his 90th. And then my neighbor had a heart attack the same day we are celebrating with my father. Wow... it just makes me grateful for each day my father is with us.

Hooray it's Saturday!

Off to work on my latest mosaic diner and then spend the day with the kids. Anyone else out there love to work with tiles or glass?

It's Friday the 13th

Why does Friday the 13th have a bad rap? I've always had great days and no bad luck on these days. Looking forward to a great day!

Would love to start a poll to see what kind of pets everyone has. I'll posted a list for everyone to post on or just comment. I'll start off and tell you that I have a St. Bernard/Great Dane mix (all 135 pounds of her), two parakeets, one Beta fish, one lizard and one hamster. If my kids had anything to say about it, we'd have more. Do you have pets?
