This is my buddy Thomas. . . not his best picture I must say. He is in desperate need of a bath and hasn’t been combed in a few days. He’s a good country dog though. If we are outside he’ll wander around the lot and enjoy the benefits of being a country dog. . .. those little dried nuggets which fall off the tractor wheels that were once cow manure. . . are now cow manure tasty treats.  And he loves to roll in whatever the neighbor cats leave for him.   Not forgetting another bit of fun is finding anything dead and lolling about in it too. . . .

But he is a fun dog who loves life with us. .. . English Springer Spaniels think that life is one big party and it’s all there just for them!   I have worked with the English Springer rescue America for a number of years and think its a good cause to donate to.  One of our Facebook friends was selling these “Span-dannys” online and I just couldn’t resist getting one for Thomas.  Isn’t it handsome?

If you want one let me know and I’ll get you in touch with the lady who makes them.   It provides love, shelter and hugs to all Springer Spaniels who are rescued!

Here it is all but 10 days before Christmas. . . and I have no ideas for the Holiday. . . Except for going to Mass of course! I’m so disorganized. . . . I’d love to hire one of those organization goddesses to help me get my act together. . . even if it were only for a month of two. . . .
I know that it may seem strange to some folks, but I”m a bit of a mess.  I don’t pick up everything . . . . ..A long time friend told me once. . . “when you are done with something put it away and then most of your cleaning is done”. . . . Okay but what about all this dang junk mail that keeps showing up?  No one else will deal with it but me . . . and the laundry? Why am I the only one who will wash towels and sheets?  Wash the dog?  The heck you say. . . . .

And who’s going to post on FB? oops. .. did I say that? So maybe I need to get off this thing and get something done you say?  How would you read about my dramatically exciting life?  How would you know that we recently de-horned the babies in the pasture and gave them shots? How would you know that we got our first fake Christmas tree in nearly 20 years?
On that last point . . . It was so easy to put up and decorate.  I don’t have to worry about water!!! It’s hard enough to remember to water house plants. . . .And I have one which desperately needs repotting. . . It keeps drooping in the little pot isn’t jammed in to. .. .poor thing is just crying for a larger pot. . . .guess I ought to get one, huh? and then more soil and then find the time during daylight hours to do the deed. . . .  Do I sound like I have ADHD?  Or is it ODC. .. or CDO  which of course is in the proper alphabetic order…  Oh Lord, please don’t let me be one of those little old ladies who has to make paths in her house to get to the door!!!!!      Amen. . . . .

I’ll see you after Christmas!!!!  May the Blessings of this Season be with you and your Loved Ones. . . . Merry and Holy Christmas to all my readers. . . all 10 of you!!! God Bless you all……
