Recovering from the Week-End!!


I just HAD to use this picture when I saw it...
while we were watching our own little fireworks show on the 4th...
this wonderful old bulldog wandered into our yard.
Poor thing seemed oblivious to the fireworks...
but we didn't know where he belonged and we didn't want him
wandering off and getting run over or something...
so we tied him up in my fenced back yard
and one of my sons looked around the neighborhood to see
if anyone was looking for him.

After a bit..his owners turned up...heading straight for our house...
seems he comes to my house whenever he gets loose...
they found him in back of my house just a few days before...
also turns out...poor thing was deaf...so the fireworks didn't
frighten him...he just wanders off on occasion
and turns up in my yard.

anyway...
so much for us making plans.

We were going to the family reunion...that didn't work out...
we were going to the lake...that didn't work out either..(rain)...
so
even though my house isn't really conducive to my
growing family anymore...
we mashed ourselves into my living/dining room
had our fried chicken and potato salad
and played....
'Rock Band'...

So yeah...I'm recovering today....from two days of
my wonderful family...
even if we were all crammed together..mostly in one room...
Rock Band and Rock Band Beatles....
(it was really fun to see my 6 year old grandson singing
'Come Together')
a little bit of poker...
a few minutes of fireworks...
and a very 'sticky' floor...
(popsicles and watermelon.)
But...we had fun....and that was the main thing.

That sounds like the perfect holiday-like Christmas really early! And the dog just cracks me up! My Rainy Days came today, yay!!!!

I can't remember the number of times I woke up looking like that dog! Sounds like you had a nice weekend inspite of the rain.
