  1. Didn’t do much today, read a bit, started re-packing my suitcase and waited for updates on the dog. for everyone’s health.
  2. I’m glad you’re staying warm, WE2. I’ve been watching that storm move across the states. It got up to 65* here in TX today. Supposed to have some clouds moving in tonight.
  3. Storm is at the hotel where I will pick him up in the morning and head back home to AZ. I’m waiting to find out what time to meet. They were watching the end of the game....
  4. He’s already stolen my heart.
  5. Leaving San Antonio this morning... those eyes...oh my.

    Daniel-J, prepping the dough doesn’t take long to kneed & roll out. 5 minutes or so. Time to pre cook the hamburger and sauce, maybe 15 minutes. Once it’s all prepared, 10-15 minutes in the oven at about 350*F.
  8. Hi Midnightmom, sorry. That error happens sometimes, when we have too many people on the site at a specific moment. We don’t have too many, very often, so, it doesn’t justify the extra hundred per month to increase the usage.
  9. Pick up in AR.. Canton handoff.. Showing off his “Sit” obedience.
  10. You’re too kind, Jeepers. Gunny has developed separation anxiety and they suggested another dog to help him. Thus, DH chose Storm, saying he’s going to be my dog. Since he’s going to be mine, I’m just bragging and showing him off.
  11. They are calling this, “Operation Rolling Storm”. Preparing to leave Memphis this morning.
  12. Storm is on his way, spending the night in Memphis. OOTO, he was chipped when they did his surgery. From what I’ve read, poor puppy was neglected the first year or so of his life, and was extremely thin. He’s come a long way, but, still has a long way to go to get to us. First exchange.... Rest area break... I think his Dramamine kicked in... Here is the partial list Semper Fi Dog Rescue posted. Today he called saying he added a bucket of people treats; gold fish crackers, M & M’s, Werther’s, etc. Travel supplies: Red 5 gallon bucket and lid. Meals in individual baggies. Extra included. Treats. Chew toy. Leash with extra carabiner and a... Rope lead either can be used as a tether to door handles or head rest. OR Seat bel clip tether. Long rope lead for potty walks. Hang on, he's strong. Purple file folder. Medical records and SFDR stickers. Dramamine. Metal food bowl. Collapsible water bowl. Paper towels. Deodorizing spray. Small bags (poop bags) Garbage bags. Large dog bed. He'll be wearing a leather collar (do not loosen). He'll be wearing a dog vest. It has hands and places to clip a lead. Use his collar. Vest is optional if he looks uncomfortable
  13. One Lady came to mom’s house, picked up another, the 3rd had a dentist appointment, so she met us at the meeting, the 4th drove herself. We had reserved tables. They honored all the past Directors and the Mexican CoC Ladies were there also. The Director of the Chamber was there & encouraged more direct contact, communication and participation of the Woman’s department with the Chamber in reaching the community and surrounding areas directly. Something we all have been trying to accomplish. Erm....the Woman’s department was established in 1920. Yeah, it’s been a long time coming. Lol. Our oldest member is over 100 years old and half of the active members are pushing 90+++. Came home and rested. I did some reading, until my eyes got to tired to focus. Mom watched her normal TV shows, News, world news, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and a couple remodeling shows, then, I’m getting ready to crash. I need to do some shopping tomorrow. It’s easier here, all the stores I have to go to are within 10 miles. At home, add 50 miles.
  14. Oh, a full rain coat, can be used as a mat or tent, warm gloves rubber gloves poo bags paper towels phone, connected to the vehicle, will call emergency assistance with a touch of a button.
  15. https://www.mrssurvival.com/topic/52400-whatcha-doing-today/page/245/?tab=comments#comment-462462 LOL! Definitely! Let’s see, I brought a choke chain & short leash. Storm is coming with: Large Dog bed Long leash Dog verst with a hand hold 5 gallon bucket, food, food & water dishes, daily packaged food, chew toys, short leash, + other stuff, I can’t remember right now. The van has my travel BOB, suitcase, personal protection, blankets, warm jacket, heavy shoes, 5 gal. of water.
  16. Yes. He gets on his trip Friday, in KY. His last driver picks him up in San Antonio and will drive him here, spending Sunday night in a hotel & I pick him up Monday morning, just before I start my trip home.
  17. Made it safely to TX. Smooth ride, not a lot of traffic, a lot of big 18 wheelers. Terrible inversion layer, looked like a dust storm, covering all of Los Cruses. Time to get some sleep, CoC installation meeting in the morning, and yes, I will be chauffeuring 4 Ladies.

    New Miles, 2020

    Wow! That’s awesome Snapshot. I’m impressed. I am looking forward to seeing how you do, Ambergris. Friday, the 10th, It said, 2,367 steps, .67 mi. Saturday, Jan 11, 2,249 steps, .63 mi. Sunday, I finished reading a book and didn’t pick my phone up. Seems close to 4 miles for the week. Better than I expected, but my hip is screaming at me any time I try to lift my right leg. (I soooo need Mt_Rider’s chiro, tho, he wouldn’t touch my back either. My chiro X-rayed me and said, no, no, absolutely not. ) Today, is house cleaning day. We shall see how many miles I can get.
  19. Jeepers, I am assuming he has a typical German Shepherd voice. WE2, when we first found out about him, DH said, they rescued him from a family that kept him outside on a chain all the time, she got pregnant and they got rid of him. Semper Fi dog rescue pulled him out of a shelter, somewhere around KY. It made me think of the story you told of your neighbors dog.
  20. They are arranging transportation from KY to TX. Tentatively, I will be picking him up next week. As the arrangements are being made, I’ve gotten a couple more pictures. Looks like he does well in a vehicle. Here he is modeling his new vest. Leash training...
  21. The first pics I got of him.... I’m assuming he’s dog friendly.
  22. After his surgery... poor baby.. Going for his checkup...

    New Miles, 2020

    It’s been a while since we have tracked our daily, weekly and monthly miles. Each of us have a reason to keep going. Whether it is chasing kids, keeping our hearts healthy or just staying fit and limber to keep going. Mine, is because I have a messed up back. Recently, spasms have put me on the ground, wondering if I could get up and walk again. Not fun, when the dog is standing over me, breathing in my face. Lol. So, this year, I am trying to walk more. Walking the dog, thankfully, he is a slack leash heeler. We walked 1.5 blocks and turned around, on 1-2. .46mi. The next day, I took a break because I was sore, only walked .07 mi. Sat.1-4, I pulled weeds, mowed, etc. and walked 2.2 mi. Mon. 1-6, walked the dog 1 square block, totaling the day at 1.4 mi. Tue. 1-7, not much, then, I didn’t have my phone on me. Then, Wed., paying bills, running errands and such,I managed another mile. Today, 1-9, going to the store, errands, and canning, 1.1 mi. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but my muscles are sore and I feel like I have been rung through a ringer. Proves to me, I really need to get back in shape. I let myself go and am determined to try to get back my strength.
