2010 Dec Route--Corrected

This past weekend we went on our December
route. Three 10 hour days in a BIG Budget truck.
It's not much fun so me and momma try to find fun things
to do when we get out of the truck.
We stayed Saturday night in a nice motel with a HUGE
bed. I got to sleep on it! Ahhh felt so good after being
in that big truck for so long.

The motel was  decorated up
 really pretty for the holiday season.
I sat at the top of the steps.
 I really wanted to run down them
but there was two  people in white clothes
at the botton and guess what...
somene was taking their picture too!! 
The man in white had his picture taken with me by the
shiny snowmen. I tried to mark him with nice paw
prints but momma had a fit and scooped me up.
geeze would have looked nice.

Even though it was snowing 8" of snow at home.
It couldn't catch us driving down the road.
It tried but we kept going south and it finally gave up.
But Mr. Wind and Cool kept right up.

downy woodpecker

Ike,  our resident Cardinal, was banging away at our window like usual.
Suddenly there was a similiar bang on the other window. Only louder!
I flew to the door to go out with momma right behind me.
And there was a downy wood pecker crumpled on the ground.
I was just about to grab it when I heard those most dreaded words,
"Leave it." Which means I can't touch it.
But whats she do,  she picks it up.
 Whats up with that? I cant, but she can???!!!

When momma picked it up and it didn't move a muscle. Its  little eyes were closed and
momma started crying. We sat in the sunshine and said good bye the little guy.
But, all of a sudden, one little eye popped open!
We was so excited.
I few minutes later, it moved one wing, then the other.
About 5 minutes later, it moved its feet and started to stand on momma hand.
It clung to her hand for about 10 minutes. Then finally flew from her hand to her shoulder.
Came back to her hand and looked her in the face. As if saying goodbye and thanks.
Then back to her shoulder. Climbed into her hair and then off to his family.

Its that time of year again.
Momma busy with that silly camera.
 I had to sit next to the pumpkins.
Then stand on the pumpkins. 
All the time wearing a pumpkin!!
I figured it out,
if I just do what she says,
I get this dumb thing off quicker.
and get a treat!
* bol bol*
 Happy Halloween,

be full of dog treats!!

Blog Hop Special Edition: Write a Post, Help a Dog! #Dogsrule

Did you know?
Each year, more than 4 million dogs end up in shelters and breed rescue organizations. Pedigree created The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive to help shine a spotlight on the plight of these homeless dogs.

This year the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive is raising awareness for homeless dogs by donating a bowl of food to shelter dogs for everyone who becomes a "Fan" or "Likes" the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive on Facebook. So far more than 1 million bowls have been donated.
Cosmo was among the 10 Pedigree bloggers who attended BlogPaws in Denver, CO last weekend.

Special for BlogPaws West: For each blog that posts about the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive through September 19, PEDIGREE will donate a bag of its new Healthy Longevity Food for Dogs to shelters nationwide. It's simple: Write a post, help a dog.

Thursday, September 16 through Sunday, September 19, the Pedigree BlogPaws bloggers will host a Blog Hop to help raise awareness for the "Write a post, help a dog" effort.

Tell as many of your blogger friends as you can, so we can help even more dogs. And if you don't have a blog, please tweet about this using the hashtag #dogsrule, re-tweet this post, or share on Facebook to help spread the word even further!

doing my part, hope it helps!!!!!!!!

Let's see how many bags we can collect!

Momma's brother......

I am a bit behind in my blogs.
We have been so busy lately, that
I am now attempting to learn to tie knots
so I can tie momma in a chair long enough
to type my blogs for me.

I wanted to tell you about one night last week
when momma went away
(without me! what's up with that??!!!)
She came home smiling big time.
She told me all about her brother Rich and his wife Jill,
*isn't she pretty!". They came up to visit from Florida,
where ever that is!
Momma said I would have loved it.
Balloons to pop!
Seems Rich didn't want a birthday picture taken, but
he should know that if momma has a camera in her
hand, he might as well sit still and get it over with.

July Flood!

July 23-24, 2010
We had two nights all nights of
thunder boomers and flashes!
It was so scary!!
Momma sat up with me all night both nights.
When it was all over they say somewhere between
11-14 inches of rain fell.

Most all the roads around are flooded and closed
because our river winds in and thru town
with lots of large creeks feeding them.
All are over the banks.
Lots of businesses on the south side of town
under water. :(
WE took pictures of just around our house.
You can see them here..

Horseshoe Tournament

One of the nations best horseshoe pitchers,
Alan Francis, shook my daddy's hand.
He was so excited to meet Alan Francis,
kinda like I would be if I got to meet Wishbone!

We were in Danville, IL.
It's an annual Big Horseshoe Tournament.
Also, there, was
a good horseshoe pitcher and bowler,
Walter Ray Williams, but he didn't talk to us.

Even tho momma took me on a few long walks.
We still found time to watch daddy pitch.

Then we watched Walter Ray (in gray),
and Alan Francis (in red) pitch.
One game we actually watched Alan Francis,
throw 92.8% ringers!!
(that's really good!)

But even tho, momma and daddy found that
really really exciting,
I still find this sitting around stuff
kinda boring.

But suddenly, it got lots more exciting!!!
This little birdy decided to join the game.
 I wanted to play with him!
But momma said no... sigh.

While watching daddy, we got to meet another
great horseshoe player.
Bob White.
He is not only good enough to win against,
 Walter Ray Williams,
but he actually makes horseshoes
 for horseshoe playing.
Hey,does that make him a
"Farrier" for horseshoe players???
You can see them at
All in all we had a nice weekend.
And met some more "new friends".
