Friday and it's Pizza Night

Okay, I did not post as much I said I was going to did I?  I always bite off a little more than I can chew.  However, last week was a start and I hope to carry on.

This week was totally uneventful.  The weather had me in a blue mood.  Rainy and cold.

Penny Loafer has been holding her own ... she has good days and some not so good.  Today is a good one!!  She walking in a straight line ... lol ... and not wobbling.  On the off day's she sometimes takes a miss step and lands on her butt and it makes her really mad!  She looks at me like I pushed her ... haaa ...  if I try to help her she growls at me and gives me the stink eye.  She can get up easily enough ... but I think it hurts her doggy dignity.  Silly girl.

We have a deer invasion.  With this nice weather, they seem to be mating much longer and are forever in the ditches and roads next to the house.  I drive very slow down our long road to the highway.  It's funny I never see any other animals around here except for wild turkeys and the odd bunny wabbit.  I did see some lost dogs the other day.  Our neighbour is a Deerhound breeder and has a huge compound just across from us on the other side of the woods.  Sometimes the young one's like to dig and two of them got out .... they crossed the woods to our yard and sat in my front yard very stressed out ...trying to figure out how to get back to their compound.  They are beautiful dogs, and almost as tall as me.  I tried to point and show them the direction back ... but as nice looking as they are ... they are not too bright.  I called the owner and all he did was stand outside his house and yell...bark bark bark ... and they ran back through the woods as fast as their feet would carry them. You would think it would be loud with that many dogs so near to us, but it's not.  They have about two howling sessions a day (feeding time).  They all bark in unison for about 1 minute ... and then... that's it!  I always time them and it's never more than a minute.  Occasionally they will bark if they hear an ambulance on the highway.

Well, I should get moving and clean up the house.  Also, it's Friday and that is still Pizza night even though I don't work anymore. I think I will make it instead of ordering in.

Take care youse guys... have a nice weekend.

I was going to blame you for our windy, cold, snowy day today, but I don't think this storm originated in Manitoba. The first snow is always so pretty, but the howling wind tonight makes me feel colder than it really is. I will have to Google an image of a Deer Hound as I don't think I have ever seen one. I'm still in a dumpy mood--don't know why. Just ticked off at the world and everyone in it.

So glad you blogged!
It's sad to watch our babies grow old but SO glad Miss Penny is hanging in there! Sweet pup...
We use to have pizza lunch at an old friends pizza restaurant on Fridays. Rollen and his wife Mary are fun people and make the Best damn pizzas.
Rollen's restaurant is called Poppa Rollo's. It's the place Larry and I met for our first date back in '72.
Memories...they're every where!
Happy week friend!
