April 4, 2017

The universe seems to be conspiring against my blogging efforts lately.

I’ve been very busy, but I’ve also been getting absolutely nothing done.


Frank had all sorts of skin problems so he had to get his Newfie fur cut short for the time being.

Newfies are not supposed to get short haircuts, but it was necessary in his case.

Frank The Newf looks ridiculous with his short hair. I laugh just looking at him!

Frank seems quite happy with short hair.

I honestly think he LIKES it.

He probably doesn’t know he looks REALLY silly?

Fred is getting groomed this week, but he’ll keep his long coat because he doesn’t have the skin problem/s Frank has.

I’ve been continuing to look at model homes.

I’d like to move somewhere with an ocean view, but it isn’t likely to happen yet.

In the meantime, I know I need to remodel and update my current house but I don’t even know where to begin.

I continue to look (and look, AND LOOK SOME MORE!) at model homes to get ideas.

One thing I really need?

A giant sized doggy door.

Right now, there’s no place to install one and I spend my entire life (well …?) letting my gentle giants in and out, and in and out, and in and out, and …!!

I have a painter scheduled to paint my outdoor deck and the wood trim on my house.

But, I had to delay the painting because I have two new babies I couldn’t leave homeless.

Baby hummingbirds in their nest.

My painter wanted to come power wash the house and begin prepping for paint.

But, if he power washes the house the nest will be destroyed so the whole project has to wait.

The babies will be out of the nest in about two weeks.

Once they’ve flown away, he can power wash to his delight.

These are the babies of the mama hummingbird who I found flying around upstairs in my house.

I’m glad I was able to rescue her because she was able to return to her nest, and she now has two healthy babies.

I’m still checking on April The Giraffe a few times each day also.

Can you tell I like animals?

As of writing this, April has not delivered her calf.

(Perhaps she will have had it by the time this publishes?)

I’m also still spending a few days each week at PT where I’m doing “gentle strengthening” per my surgeon’s orders.

I have photography jobs pending, so I suggested to one of the aides yesterday she should tell Paul Newman how REALLY strong I am.

She laughed (!!!) at me.

(There is NO fooling Paul Newman – that man sees and knows EVERYTHING.)

I’ve also had a lot of family stuff going on lately ….

Like I said …. busy, busy, busy ….

But, sometimes it feels like I’m just spinning my wheels.

    If you keep Frank’s large black spots, and reverse the white with black flecks to black with white flecks, Frank and my English Cocker Cassie have very similar markings when clipped. Except Frank is probably about five times bigger than Cassie!

    I feel like a dog door for those two is just a door anyone can enter it would be SO BIG! haha
