  1. He’s waiting for me to go back outside.. excuse the messed up blanket. I am using it to try to keep the muddy paws prints slightly less than it would be without it. I’ve already gone through several towels. Lol.
  2. .....and it’s raining.... he brought a Storm.....
  3. Storm’s first whole day went well. He is beginning to learn our house rules. He’s a food guarder. We had an issue when he wanted to keep Gunny from the other food dish. 2 huge bowls of dog food scattered all over and a spat, that brought us both into the room instantly. Later, he toned it down to a growl, which was corrected, again. I know it will take some time, for Storm to understand, there will always be 2 huge, full dishes of food available. And, goodness, what big paws he has. I doubt he is 3, no way. I’m guessing, maybe 1 1/2. Puppy energy and chewing. He will be getting a bath today.... and, the shock collar. (Please don’t be offended, I can’t move fast enough to grab him before he races across the yard.) He needs to listen to me and quit running out to the fence to chase and bark at every car that goes by or try to bite at my hens. And, no! taking food off our plates, or trying to clean an empty plate on the table... More house rules. Poor thing, he’s going to think his name is “NO! “.
  4. Glad you were safe, WE2 Mt_Rider, you get well quickly. The crud is terrible this year. DH got two heavy doses of amoxicillin, because the Z-packs have never worked for us, they gave us both albuterol, but they cost $49.99 each! Nope, wasn’t in the budget. I still have one my old doc gave me, free, in his office. No cough syrup, this new doc. “doesn’t believe in it.” Wow, Miki, that sounded scary. Most the beggars around here, already know to stay away from DH. . Littlesister, I’m grateful you are getting answers for your DH. We didn’t do much yesterday, just keeping an eye on the dogs. Today, I need to go to the store, FedEx will be here around 10:00, then, company a little later. If the last of the tax forms comes in, I’ll crank out the taxes. I used the bottom of a cardboard egg carton, on top of the top of a styrofoam egg carton, to start some tomato and jalapeño seeds. Yesterday 2 homestead tomato sprouts popped up. Many of us have been feeling the need to prep lately. After reading about Joseph, I am feeling the same. Interesting point, is that the gardens are growing better than they ever have. There is always a reason. Lol.
  5. We are home. Met up with the driver, but Storm seemed terrified of me, after a brief walk, he calmed down enough to get into my truck. He met Gunny in our front yard, neutral territory. They played running circles in the yard, while I barbecued. ...taking a water break.... Then, this morning I annoyed them by using my camera flash.. it was worth it. He is extremely thin. Another reason it took 3 months before we could get him. The rescue owner said, Storm could hardly walk from malnutrition, when they rescued him. Storm seems eager to please and craves attention.
  6. Home safe. Nice drive. Stopped to get gas at our regular stop, their pumps weren’t working. Got on the highway to go to the next one, and, couldn’t believe, the next car that passed me, was the driver that brought Storm to me in TX. We rolled down our window & smiled & waved at each other. Lol. Turned out, he has family in Phoenix and was taking a road trip! Well, shucks, he could have brought Storm to us at home. Meh, doesn’t matter, Storm is here. Just a side note, the driver could use a few prayers. Un-spoken, of course, for privacy.
  7. Try to stay safe and warm everyone. Early morning temp in TX was in the 40’s, 50’s by the time I got on the road. 50’s through NM... and 80*F !!!! In Tucson. Yup, that’s AZ for ya. 78* and overcast, when I drove into our driveway. Today, it is sprinkling, 1/4” of water in my rain catchers, indicating it either sprinkled all night or we got a nice downpour.
  8. Didn’t do much today, read a bit, started re-packing my suitcase and waited for updates on the dog. for everyone’s health.
  9. 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.
  10. 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....
  11. He’s already stolen my heart.
  12. Leaving San Antonio this morning... those eyes...oh my.
  13. Louis1, So nice to see you!

    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.
  15. 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.
  16. Pick up in AR.. Canton handoff.. Showing off his “Sit” obedience.
  17. 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.
  18. They are calling this, “Operation Rolling Storm”. Preparing to leave Memphis this morning.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
