2012 Year of the Dragon

Brian and I went to dinner at Autumn Garden and walked it off at Walmart. We saw a bleach blond with dark roots and pink bangs; skin tight zebra tights with red spike heels; last but not least Mimi blue eyeshadow with massive fake lashes. The trip ended with chocolate mint candy canes %50 off. What a night.

Kona Wildlife

Here is one of my constant swim partners just as curious about me as I was of her.
 Our last day in Kona, Hawaii and waving us Aloha was a single whale who splashed and made our day.

Sandy revisits the Cone of Shame

Sandy somehow cut her left rear paw. It was fairly deep and she just wouldn't let it be. So the vet placed her in an e-collar. This look says it all.

Office Holiday Card

Since our Graphic Artist is incapacitated for the holiday season, I made the office "web" holiday card. I started this as a practice time killer. Course #2 from the left took another job and #6 just stopped coming in to work. We usually take an office photo so this was just a fun replacement. Plus I'm way fatter this year and can draw myself anyway I want. Ho Ho Ho.

Wylie's Christmas Portrait

Our sweet Wylie is photographed trying to talk me into giving her a pig ear. I took the cataracts out of her eyes she is 14ish and so gentle and sweet.

Holiday Stampin up Party

Our Stampin up group held our first holiday party. We all brought a card to make and yummy treats. Dan make a crab soup that was the best I've ever tasted. Corey brought brother Cameron's spicy pretsels and CJ blew us away with her cherry almond dip from Gatlinburg.

 Up in the craft room we all set up our cards and moved to different stations to make 5 different cards.

I started the Nutrisystem so I could re-norm my portion size. I have lost weight already.
 Here is a picture of my "special" cabinet.

Dogs in a Blanket

Sandy likes the comfort of being under the blankets. I have wanted to capture her blanket face for some time. She has had to be rescued before because she turns around and gets stuck. It's a hoot.
