This past Saturday the 13th, Tony and I participated as volunteers in the wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery.
The link to my blogpost about it on my other blog (and the link to the pictures we took)
We unfortunately missed the opening ceremony because the Metro was a mad crush of volunteers heading to the cemetery, and we had to use our phones to take pictures because the entire pack of extra batteries we'd bought were useless :( but it was still an uplifting, moving, awe-inspiring event to be a part of, honoring our nation's fallen heroes.
A friend in Australia refers to her dogs as 'the 3 Amigos', and now that Bo has joined our family, we have our Own 'Three Amigos'
Brownie,Riggo and Bo
It was hilarious this morning when I tried to do my stretches for my back (I hurt my back the end of August)..I normally do them in a room where I can close the door, since I lay on the floor to do them..but all three dogs were napping, so I thought I'd try lying on the floor in the front room.
Is there such a thing as 'too much love'? I think so,LOL, at least it felt that way this morning when as soon as I laid on the floor, I suddenly had the 3 dogs plus one of the cats decided that my actions meant I wanted to play with them...I was literally 'rolling on the floor laughing' while trying to fend off the affections of all of the pets, ha ha.
I gave up and decided to go stretch in a room where I could shut the door!
Bo,Riggo and Brownie
Well ,it's always fun to have pets. and this Used to be My couch, ha ha.
yikes, haven't posted since Feb!
A lot has happened since then, our trusted Ford Taurus was on it's last legs, so we got a new car :)
and, as the husband says, the monthly Payment to go along with the new car!!
We're both excited, this is a 2013 and that's the Newest car either of us has ever had!
Son Ben and his fiancee Emma got married! ( on our anniversary, so I'll never forget Theirs,lol)Welcome to the family,Emma! so happy for you guys !!
Son Dustin came to visit, and we took No pictures whatsoever,lol.
and, after 7 long years, I Finally (thanks to the best husband in the world :) have a clothesline!!
which may not seem like that much, but I Love the smell of clothes and sheets,etc. after they have hung on the line :) the previous place we lived you couldn't have clotheslines..you never know how much you want something until you can't have it!!
Other than that, I have not been having the greatest time healthwise, I've managed to have 2 pulled leg muscles a month apart, which stinks, because I do a Lot of walking as a nurse, plus this second injury has also meant I won't be able to volunteer at the 2014 Face of America bike ride :(
but aside from the health glitches, life continues to be blessed and we are happy :) Hope all you and yours are the same!
