Oh My Dog, I just came inside:
I DO BELIEVE WINTER HAS ARRIVED!!!!!! BUUUUUUUurrrrrrrrrrr.......
It is 6 p.m. and 18 degrees. Light snowflakes are falling.
Prediction IS FOR 1-2" TONIGHT....Sub-zero with windchill
by morning! A high of 15 for tomorrow. A good week of very
cold weather. Thanksgiving Day is now forecast to be 20ish.
Sure glad the Holiday is at my Housie!
I just came in from outside and I was wearing a heavy cabled
turtleneck sweater that covers my butt...All the way to my tail!
Gma was standing on the step,coat and gloves and shivering.
Demanding,I hurry it up,cuz,she wasn't going to hang around.
I didn't waste anytime either,I was afraid my Piddle would
freeze Me to the ground! Thank goodness for my potty station.
I think, we are done trucking outside tonight....
The oven is going and supper is in there. Meatballs,loaded
scalloped potatoes,crescent rolls,mixed vegetables,salad,
vanilla pudding with bananas for the old folks. I'm having
chopped turkey tonight. Gma made turkey salad sandwiches
for lunch. She took half the turkey and left it plain for
Precious and myself to share. A little change to break up
We baked pumpkin mini breads today. Apple and banana ones
yesterday. Yep, I had to sample the pumpkin at lunchtime.
Then Gma said, neither of us could have any snacks this
afternoon. Who made that Silly Rule????????
My Christmas picture cards arrived from Shutterfly today.
They turned out Pawtastic! Even, if I do say so myself!
I didn't know I was so beautiful. Gma saw at photobucket
she can get a canvas of a picture done for $20. She's
thinking she will do that. Hang me on the wall....Now
with all this Cold...I'm sure,we will get to work on
addressing our mails. Gma sure won't go out if she doesn't
have too! The weather like this is just too Wicked for
her old body...BTW- I'm asking Santa Paws to bring me
one of those heated pad for pups....Cuz everytime, Gma
gets off her moist heatpad,I jump on it and curl up!
So toasty and snuggly WARM!
Hope it's warmer at your house than it is at my house?
Have a pawtastic evening... hugs and kisses,mazy

OMD! Well into November and the days are slipping away ....
Since I last popped in,we've started our holiday baking.
Figure we are about 3 weeks behind from last years schedule.
Been working on pumpkin,banana and apple mini breads. Also
busy with cookies....We are setting aside 2 days a week
for baking now. Sometimes 3 days........House smells so
pawsome all the time...
Except for Thanksgiving week.....the day before, baking
will be buns,bars and a pumpkin pie. Cookies pulled from
the freezer... We are serving an EASY HELP YOURSELF BUFFET
with lots of finger foods. This family likes to Graze
all day long...The Games for the day are WAY MORE IMPORTANT
to all of us. The grand-kids have to do, 2 T-days in 1 week.
Gets to be too many heavy duty foods...So, this was Grandma
and Melissa's solution. Everything will be done the day before,
except to bake and slice the ham.
Takes us awhile with our other baking. We send Christmas
boxes out. Also make trays for friends and neighbors.
Leave goodies for the mailman,as I depend on him to
deliver all my holiday mail....I'm still the talk of
the post office,since there are no other Pups around
here,who receive their own mail and packages. I still
think the mailman should carry pup treats too! After
all,when the human kids grew up,the mail carrier left
suckers for the kids. What am I,chopped liver??????????
Even the bank and the credit union have pup cookies for me!
Stacks of Christmas cards are on the kitchen table,but
we have yet to sit and paw some signatures. Start
addressing envelopes. The printed card of cute little
me has been shipped by Shutterfly. Should show any day
Great-Gma wanted a new lazyboy recliner and our
furmily had Gma's sister take her shopping. Great-Gma
chose her chair and half,recliner and rocker in blue
micro-suede. Order will come from the company in about
a month. Fancy Baby,Great-Gma's Black Miniature Schnauzer
will be able to share the same chair....Isn't that pawsome?
My human sis went off to do some of Gma's shopping for
her last week. Boy, is it nice to have little Elves to
help out! We can keep our little mini bakery going along.
We have a brand new Petco in Bismarck. Haven't checked it
out,yet! So now,Pet Smart will have some good old fashioned
competition! I can hardly wait to go shop for my Secret
Santas....Gives me so many ideas for my Santa Paw List!
The only other stuff we've been doing is the same old
same old.....clean,then dirty stuff up! Wash the clothes
then dirty them up! Cook,cook and cook aaaaaaaannnnnddddd
EAT it ALL UP! Then we start all over again........
Sunshine today and 42....the cold weather they predicted
a few days ago...missed us! Yippy!
HAVE A PAWSOME WEEK
HUGGIES AND KISSIES,MAZY

It's Sunday morning,my hooman sis and McKenzie will
be here after church for pancake brunch and some games.
I LOVE cakes,scrambled eggies and real bacon! Thank you
Kenzie for your social calendar or Gma wouldn't be making
brunch! Yippy for Tweenies! She had 4-H sewing on Friday,
due to NO School. Championship football game on Saturday.
BURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Glad I wasn't there! A windy 30.....
So she didn't come home with Gma and Gpa...Sent another
sweater to mend with Gma.
Jaxcen and Gpa have been deer hunting all weekend. Saw
plenty of my beasties! Gpa sighted his gun in,but is out
of practice. He had 3 good chances and missed! 3 more
weeks to fill his tag.
Jax's was so excited about the hunting.He was up & dressed
at the crack of dawn! 1st. there was kitties and bottle
calf chores. Graining older calves and haying the cows.
Jax's played with me a little Thursday night but was late
when they came home. Friday & Saturday mornings, HE IGNORED
ME!!!!!!! I WAS LIKE MOLDY OLD BREAD! NOT THE IMPORTANT
PRINCESS I AM!!!!
I got over it, since: 1) they brought a half of steak home
for me Thursday. 2) He has energy to play at night with me.
3) Venison beasts is for my freezer! That means,I eat most
of the steak....
Gma found this great liver training treat(just too small,
I think! only pea size) She bribed me to pose for pictures.
So while they were gone in the cold...I posed and posed!
Saturday Gma and I downloaded the photos,chose a card,made
my Christmas card. Doing it early, we had Free shipping!
Gma never got to the errands and massage on Friday. I was
munchin' on my beggin' strip and she returned in a pickup!
Her puter on the car,started flashing low tire. She barely
made the neighbor's place. He was putting air in and the
air was coming out as fast as it went in....Gma left the
car and came home. After chores,Gpa,Jax's and Gma went to
get the car. They had to put this funny little tiny tire
on....Gma limped home! Supper was late that night.
Saturday morning they called their local Farmer's Store.
They had tires for her...Off she went! Leaving me by
myself yet again! It was close to lunch time when she
returned. Put grocery away and we waited for the guys.
Had a take and bake pizza for lunch, our little grocery
store makes. It was delish! I had a tiny bite!
Saturday afternoon Jax's was here. Gpa had to help
with some cattle at our friends. Our friend has to have
a major back surgery just before T-day. (If not, the
Doc,says, it won't be long and he would be paralyzed)
My Gpa will be up there 3 times this next week working
cattle. Gma says, those will be some baking days, cuz
it's just her and I. Jax's and I played puter games
and WII Resort. After supper, Gma and Gpa played WII
bowling with Jax's. On the side Gma was playing stuffies
All weekend, Everyone went to bed extra early! They
were tired! I had to go to bed too! I had plenty of
naps.....A doxie can always sleep and snuggle! So it
was okay! Gma and I have just been running out for a
second for piddle breaks. The Canadian Cold front has
arrived....By Monday it will in be 20's for high and
single digits for nights. Mid-week,suppose to return
to normal temps.,which is now 40's for November.
Oh Yeah! Gma woke up to Precious puked in the sunroom!
No coffee in her and she had to take care of that! I
quickly went from Princess to Queen of the throne!
Yippy Precious,Way to Go!!!!!!!
Here's barkin' at you pals,
See ya soon!
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy

Making some progress on the fall list that seems to never end.
Gma told Gpa, if she doesn't get started on the baking SOON....
There would be NO GOODIES for the Holiday Season. What NO GOODIES!
This has NEVER happened and WE WOULD ALL DIE! THIS FURMILY CAN'T
MAKE IT, WITHOUT THEIR DAILY SUGAR HITS! ME INCLUDED!!!!!
Finally the last 4 windows are washed. Upstairs of house cleaned up.
Followed by the interior of the car...So car is ready for winter.
Gma had to put it through a car-wash in Bismarck,as now too
cold to use our very cold well water.
We sure miss the car wash we used to have in town.
We did this on Wednesday. Monday and Tuesday regular stuff
plus a supply run. My goodie box had Walleye filet in it.
She wouldn't let me set in the car and put masterpieces on each
window glass and leave the butt heater on and radio going for me,
so pouted and demanded to go inside....
My plush loveseat awaited.
GMA LIED TO ME!!!!!!! She said,last week,NO MORE RAKING! The old gal
could hardly walk,bend or use her hands and arms anymore...Well,
she gets up this morning and Jerks out the broom,dustpan and leaf
rake. Out we go in the temperature of 40...clean up the leaves
from front and back steps. Sweep the patio of leaves. Then rake
over by the garage...Around a couple big trees and then off to
re-rake the front yard. As the willow leaves were covering the
ground. I GOT IN TROUBLE,as I wondered around looking for left
over barn kitty food... She called me back several times and I
came. Then she'd get busy and I'd sneak off again....Looking for
more kitty foods. I also sneaked into the shop with a work
sweater on and rolled the greasy stuff! I was out an hour,bored
by then,so I came inside. She only worked a couple hours and
quit. (Only cuz, grand-kids are going to be here and she wants
McKenzie to sign Christmas cards for her. Help her with some
Jaxcen will be with Gpa for his 1st. time deer hunting. Gpa
bought a pair of spy glasses for him to see the deer a long
ways away! They were also invited to go goose hunting in the
morning, if they want too. Deer season opens at noon. Gpa isn't
real big on hunting,like he was when he was young. Since Jaxcen
is interested and his Daddy doesn't hunt. Gpa will be teaching
Jax's how. Things he will remember when he is all grown up.
THEY ARE GOING AFTER THE GRANDKIDS TONIGHT.
EATING OUT WITH HOOMAN-SIS,HUBBY AND GRANDKIDS
BEFORE THEY TRUCK BACK UP THIS WAY. For FUN Gma
is going to a wine tasting night next Friday with
her daughter. Been ages since they did something
together without the rest of us. What the Moms
are doing something without being tailed by the
rest of us???? I OBJECT TO THIS!
Then you can put in your order for the wines,
you like for the holidays.I don't know what is
so COOL about this, but Gma thinks it is great!
Had no trouble drinking the bottles given to her
last Christmas. Well gotta run so she can clean
up for tonight....
See ya later pups!:D:-h:B~d..mazy

Hey pals- How's everyone doing? Can you believe it,it's
November 1st.? We turn the silly clocks back this weekend,
so the nights can be even longer! Now, where's my magic wand?
I'd like to turn the CALENDAR BACK TO.......LET'S SEE...HUUMM!
I THINK LATE MAY WOULD BE GOOD FOR US!
A REALLY BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL THOSE CUTIE DANCING SKELETONS..
They sure make my page pretty! I'm so sorry I missed
Halloweenie Day! You can guess what we were doing? Oh come
on,guess! YEP, WE WERE CHASING LEAVES ON THE 30TH AND 31ST.
WE RAKED,TUBBED,LOADED,HAULED LEAVES. FINISHED PICKING UP
ODD STUFF AT THE GARDEN. LOADED UP STICKS. THEN WE TOOK THE
MOWERS OUT AND WE MOWED THE YARD. THE PROPERTY WEST OF THE
CIRCULAR DRIVEWAY, WE MOWED AND MOWED AND MOWED! WE CHOPPED
THOSE NASTY LEAVES INTO MULCH! WE DIDN'T RAKE THEM! GMA'S
OLD BODY IS SHOT!
NO TICK OR TREATORS HERE....SO IT WAS A DAY LIKE ANY OTHER.
EXCEPT, GMA SAID,' WE ARE DONE CHASING LEAVES!' IF November,
would be nicer weather than October:we'd rake up the yellow
willow leaves when they fall. They are in my fenced in front
yard. It was only 37 on Wednesday and 45 Thursday. Today it
is 41,gray and drizzly. Mr. Sunshine sure hasn't been outside
much this past month. I did supervise for 2 hrs. on Thursday.
I got bored,found tractor oil to roll in....then,I found
stinky calf poop and then I had a yap fest with the little
tiny baby kitties...I just don't understand why my play bark
scares them????? Gma was carrying a cherry stick and said,
'quiet or I'll spank!' When I was quiet the little kitties
didn't run and hide... WowZer! Maybe there is something to
just wagging my tail and not crowding the babies???????
Gma says,' this weekend I can catch up with pals and my
groups!' Yippy! It's my turn to be 1st.,instead of the
work! I gotta go now and help Gma put a turkey in the oven.
Yep,a whole 10 lb. bird and it isn't even Thanksgiving!
Must be a celebration of being Royal Pup of the Day at
PDPC group and I missed it chasing darn, nasty, wet,
old leaves. If, I'm having turkey for supper on a regular
day....Gma must be up to somethin'?????????????????????
GMA,WHAT SNEAKY THING ARE YOU PLANNING ON DOING???????
I'll get back to ya, when I figure out what she's up

The grand-kids just went home. They were with us this weekend.
Gma and Gpa went to get them on Saturday morning. McKenzie had a
birthday sleepover at a friend's on Friday night. She didn't want
to miss seeing me, like the last Time she wasn't with her brother
They took them to lunch at the Dairy-Maid. They had yummy stuff
plus ice cream! They didn't bring me any ice cream but Kenzie
brought 1/2 her chicken wrap to me! Gma took the lettuce,chicken
and cheese off the wrap...I had that for lunch! It was so very
Pawsome! I think next time they should take me along. Go through
the Drive-up and eat in the car....Then, I could order lunch too!
I was so Happy to see both of the kids! They taught me a new
game called keep my squeakie squirrel away from Mazy! I was
tricky and ever 4th. or 5th. toss,I managed to grab it! Honk
a few times and then we started again. We also played my
favorite hide and seek with some stuffies. I can find them
in really hard places. I'm 6 so no peeking!!!!!
I helped Gma play her pieces in the dominoes,skipp-o and farkle.
Gma let them make their own homemade pizzas for supper. We
used Gma's homemade pizza sauce. It was yummy! Kenzie helped
mixed up the dough and cut up veggies. Jax's helped Gpa with
the bottle calves,barn kitties,pasture cattle and calf chores.
Gma and Kenzie,put a Santa hat and scarf on me...bribed ME
with the tiny little soft Liver treats...then they posed me!
Trying to capture a Christmas picture we like for our cards.
I did pretty good but Gma says, she will try some more and
use the BEST one....We had caramel rolls for breakfast,hot
dogs,nachoes,apple slices with caramel dip,assorted cookies
for dinner. It was ALL Yummy but Gma said, she couldn't
eat this kind of kids food everyday! She needs her veggies!
Said, she'd gain a zillion pounds with so many carbs......
The WORST DAY THIS WEEK was THURSDAY...GMA, FIRED ME !!!!!
So we had a skiff of snow on Tuesday and the leaves were
covered Wednesday morning but melted in the 1 hr. of sunshine.
Thursday morning it was a heavy frost....Cold,gray,wet leaves,
temperature was only 30's.
Gma put the red sweatshirt on me, took a laundry basket with
a full size winter blanket in it ...Plus one of my fav. velour
blankies outside. I was not touching the ground,there was no
wind......BUT, it was MAD-DOG COLD! I jumped out 1 time to,
catch 1 cat...I knew she had a whole bag of treats......
HOWEVER, I couldn't stand it! I begged to go inside! I did
my doxie yodel,danced on my hide leggers and ran to the cattle
room door........Not once, but 4 times.....HEY,CAN YOU SEE ME?
I'M NO LONGER BLACK AND TAN,I'M PURPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gma said," You are some supervisor! You are suppose to keep
me company and help keep me going! I'm NOT having a good time
out here,either! There is NO ONE Else to do this!" She Fired me!
Took me to the house! Didn't give me the treats! Her sneakers
were wet! Put on snow boots....Stayed out from 12-7p.m.
She did manage to rake the whole yard and pile up 40 huge
piles. Was trying to tub them, when Gpa came home from helping
neighbor with his cattle. It was already 4p.m. Gma was cold
and had many piles left to pick up. She told Gpa to leave the
stock trailer for them to be loaded. She didn't want to rake
the same leaves twice! Gpa started helping her at 5p.m.
Gma could hardly move by time supper was over............
She was a mess for 2 days......The weekend visit with kids
let her body regroup for the next round! ZILLIONS STILL OUT
THERE....PROBABLY have to rake another 4 times.
Monday/Tuesday cold and in the 30's. Good chance of more RAIN!
We will be doing our big cleaning. They have to make a run for
tons of kitty foods....Yet AGAIN! If I could push a cart, Gma
would send me with Gpa! I get to watch stuff here and stay warm!
Thank Dogness for the potty station! I will not do my business
in a COLD,WET mess with a 20-30 mph wind! Gma can't take it!
She is suppose to stay out of the cold! Slowly, the fall list
is being whittled down.
This time,grand-kids didn't run off and forget their 3 big boxes
of chocolate chip,peanut-butter blossom and monster cookies in
the freezer. Gma also made them banana bread. They took onions
from the garden. A bag of apples,Grandma had too many! She already
froze some for baking. Plenty to dry some for Uncle Troy.
The Highlight of my week was: ALL THE ENERGY THE GRAND-KIDS
BRING WITH THEM.....After all, I live with 2 old people!
Sometimes they are so very boring!
I think, it is about suppertime...If not, Gma...may I have
a snackie??? It's been about 2 hours since I ate something!
Hope your week was Pawtastic!

Thank Dogness, it is Friday! Gma can go get a massage and
stop being a Crabby Abby! Rain mixed with high winds and a tornado
watch last week: made Gma cancel 2 wks. in a row! Suppose to
rain today and Sunday...Tornado watches in October are not
OCTOBER 2013 is NOT going down as our favorite Fall month!
Every time we turn around it is RAINING AGAIN! The temps.
are running about 20 degrees cooler than normal. Lots of
strong wind....1 day this past week, it made 59. 60's are
normal for this time of the year. 1.5" rain on Monday....
rained ALL day! Drizzles on Wednesday. Way over 5" this
month. We are pushing 30" of moisture for 2013. NEED
TO SAY NORMAL IS 15" PER YEAR. (TOTAL MOISTURE)
Sunshine has been limited to a couple days. The gloomy
gray,cold,wet is dragging our HOUSE DOWN! Makes the
outside work very difficult. Ground is so soft, Gpa is
having a hard time moving and hauling hay bales off the
fields. Gma and I are having a very tough time with
our yard-work,windows and spraying for bugs. We are sure
our PAWS are webbed and we are looking very duckish!
MON.- rained, crazy woman drug the canner out again!
She canned 21 jars of spicy tomato sauce. She sent
25 lbs. to a girl friend up the road. She sent apples
to our house. WAS A VERY LONG DAY! Only about 3 dz.
tomatoes left ...Yippy!
TUES.- I was on guard duty,while they made a daytime
supply run to Bismarck. Too WET for Gpa to do his
work. Wasn't dark when they returned. The old folks
weren't POOPED OUT! They returned with pup treats!
It was cold and gray, so I slept ALL DAY and was
ready to PLAY the Evening away.....
WED.- Spent the morning peeling,slicing and freezing
apples for pies,bars,cake,breads and muffins. We
bundled up and went outside. Worked 3 hrs.
Cleaned off the patio and 2 sets of stairs. They were
plastered with sticks and soaking wet leaves. Then
we picked up sticks around the yard. We have filled
25 bushel and half tubs full of debris in the last
2 wks. (Wed.-10 tubs was all we could do)60 yr. old
cottonwood trees make a HUGE mess!
I was muddy and had to have a tubby...Yippy!!!!!!
I love the Blow Dryer to warm me up!
THURS.- We stripped our bed and changed the sheets.
Did laundry and All our big cleaning for the week.
We hauled stuff to the basement to store for the
winter. Gma rearranged and cleaned 2 freezers. We
hauled some begonia to the basement. Great-Gma says
let them dry out and sit the winter. Water toward
spring and our beautiful double red,yellow and coral
flowers will bloom another year. (Never tried this,
but Great-Gma does it all the time)
FRI.- We started the day with 28 degrees,gray and
cold. Drizzles......Spent our time today,catching
up on snail mail,business calls and some online
shopping. I didn't see any PUP stuffies being ordered.
Also Gma was messing with a Christmas scarf and
Santa cap.....Trying to figure out, how to do a
picture of ME! Time is slippin' away and will need
to order my pics soon...Several pals are signing
their cards already! WOWZER! Gma thinks my card
should have Halloween,Thanksgiving,Christmas and
New Year's on it! Then if, she is still poking
along.... My card will cover all of 2013...It's
somethin' we're thinkin' about.... Well, it's
lunchtime and then her appts.
SAT.-catch up all the laundry and chores still
SUN.- More rain is coming....they are leaving me
to keep an eye on Precious. They are going to sneak
away for a few hrs. Instead of staying here and
workin' on their fix-it list. Gma says,"they
both need a break!" Grand-kids are stayin'
the last weekend of the month. So their Mom
can go to a scrap booking weekend. Always FUN
I hear Gpa....gotta go and snag some lunch!

As you know pals, I told you, grandson and his Mom were
comin' for a sleepover visit. We crawled out of bed early
to do the big moppin' and scrubbin' on Saturday. We Zipped
through, thinkin' about playin' games and takin' a badly
needed weekend. A Rest and Recuperate session. Rain made
it possible for Gpa to take a break too! Ground too soft
for haulin' bales.
It was a little after 10 and we headed outside. Hoping
to pick up sticks before lunchtime. The rain and wind
on Friday had again plastered our yard and patio. We hung
with it for 90 minutes. Didn't finish....Gma's squatter
wouldn't squat anymore. It was only 45, she was froze
out! I had on a sweatshirt but kept runnin' to the door
wantin' in.... About time for lunch, in we went!
Gma was washin' her hands at the kitchen sink and I
raced across the kitchen...grabbing something off the
floor....under Gpa's kitchen chair...I shook myself,
threw it, across the kitchen,ran to grab it....Let
me have it again,was all I could think about!
Gma said, "Mazy, what have you got????" She turns on
the lights and jumps back! She screams! OMD,OMD! A
GARTER SNAKE IN THE KITCHEN!!!!! How did it,get in here?
She had everything moved to vacuum and mop the floor.
Gma is backin' up, I'm grabbin' the snake,bitin' it,
shake it and throw it.....What FUN I'm havin'!!!!!
Gma is shakin' like a leaf and back peddlin'! She backs
up and shuts the doggie gate......OMD! Gma, the snake is
the size of a pencil! The doggie gate won't stop the snake!
Silly OLD GMA! Then Gma says,"I don't want you to take it
into your cave....That's underneath a chair in the livin'
After I threw the snake a dozen times, Gma is still
screamin' " LEAVE IT!" So I back-off, she slowly
approaches with a fly swatter:pokes at the snake....
EWH! It's not DEAD!!!!!!!!!! It MOVES and she jumps back!
Her heart is racin' and she is shakin' and I'm yappin'
LET ME AT IT! I'LL KILL IT FOR YOU!
The way the old lady is carrin' on, you'd think this
was a Cobra out of the Indiana Jones Movies...about to
bite her! She's so FUNNY! Slowly she creeps up with
swatter,slides it under the snake...NOW WHAT?????
She wiggles the swatter....snake is playin' dead....She
grabs a red solo cup and slides it in. Puts a stretchy
cover on the cup. Sits it on the counter. She wants to
show Gpa and then he can get rid of it... He's not gonna
Gpa comes in, Gma is still shakin',heart racin' and red
in the face. I'm struttin' and yappin' and tryin' to tell
him what's goin' on! Gma tells him, he doesn't believe
her.....she says, look in that CUP! He looks and WOWZER
it is a garter snake. Only the size of a pencil and maybe
10" stretched out....
They decide to leave it in the cup and show Jaxcen when
he arrives. They sit down and have a bowl of soup. Jax's
comes, listens to the story...He looks in the cup,so does
his Mom....are you sure we want to sleep over?????
We sit the cup on the counter and start playin' games.
Later Gpa and Jax's are goin' outside to do chores. Gpa
wants to know where Gma's PET is????????Gma says,"in the
cup?" He says, No,there is nothing in the cup!(The guys
were goin' take it outside and release it.)
Gma thinks, they are pullin' her leg,goes to look and it
is GONE! The plastic stretchy wasn't a tight fit. Gma
didn't think, it could crawl up the side of the big cup.
Especially after the way, I worked it over!
They start movin' stuff and lookin' around the counters.
Gma could have put me on the counter, my snout would have
found it ASAP! Anywho,the snake had crawled into a plastic
basket, that holds some kitchen thingies and a zip bag
of milk-bones and busy-bones. Gma and my hooman sis are
havin'a hissy fit NOW! Gpa catches it and takes it out...
We have no idea how it got into our kitchen??????? All
Gma's drama is due to her snake phobia! When she was 6,
the neighbor boy put a garter snake down her shirt. Her
shirt was tucked into her shorts! She FREAKED! Almost
all snakes in Alabama were poisonous...She had some
encounters with cotton-mouths,water-moccasins and rattlers
when growin' up.....SSSSSSOOOOOOOOOO,she isn't rational
where snakes are concerned!
I'm her HERO cuz, I didn't let the snake get her! I didn't
let the snake get away,either! Gpa rewarded me with
venison nibbles for lunch, while they ate boring soup!
Took Gma a couple hours to get over the EWH FACTOR!!!!!!
Had a FUN-TIME with Jaxcen....We played Pass the Pigs,
Farkle,Dominoes and Skipp-o. We made the vanilla popcorn
and they even shared with ME! Ya'll know,what a sweet
toopher this little doxie has. Nobody shared their pancakes
this morning....I HIT the JACKPOT! There was 1 strip
of bacon left and they gave it to me! Pretty PAWTASTIC
WEEKEND! Snuggle and playtime,sweets and treats,chased
a few cats and had some crisp cool fall air.

Hi There Pals-Princess of the Ponderosa,
Reportin' the Prairie News. Last weekend
was Gpa's 63 rd. Barkday! He is older than
prairie dirt!I didn't get any cake! Gma made
a nasty chocolate one. I did have pumpkin
cookies and busy-bones.
Gpa had down time...was able to take it EASY!
We had a Big Blast of winter! The temps. went
from 70's to 50's to 30's in 2 days. The SNOW,
yes SNOW,missed my house by 25 miles. Capitol
city had 10". Our moisture came as RAIN. We had
2.6" with lots and lots of high winds. Leavin'
our yard plastered with sticks and branches.
Saturday, the 5th., Gpa's B-day, we lost our
power for 3 1/2 hrs. Due to wind tearing power
lines down. There went the TV Gpa was watchin'.
It was only 35 outside and the house turned
COLD...Gma and I snuggled under 3 of my blankies,
sat by a window and read her library book.
Saturday night, it dropped to 30. Our 1st.
FROST here at my house. Kinda late!
We drug tomatoes into sunroom before the frost.
Gma had 15 catfood flats filled. They ripen
quickly through the big windows. Gma gave
away a bunch and also canned some this week.
We have another bucket ready to can. Yep, she
had put canner away...but dug it out AGAIN!
We have picked up 12 big tubs of sticks this
week. Raining this morning and the wind has
plastered the yard once again! We just did
the job,late yesterday after finishing our
cookie and bar baking. Grand-kids and Gpa both
out of cookies! We spent 1 1/2 days this week
baking cookies. Made 32 dozen and 1 pan of
crispy peanut-butter bars. Grandson and Mom
are comin' tomorrow to visit. After Jaxcen
plays a football game 130 miles from home!
They are stayin' over for games and such.
Jax's ordered chicken strips,fries,cucumber
salad and corn for supper. Requested Gma's
pancakes and bacon for Sunday brunch.
Kenzie won't be with us this time. She will be
in Minot with her other Gma, at her Aunt Amy's
house watching the twins. They were 1 yr. in July.
McKenzie has now caught up with Gma and is
5'6" and only 11 yrs. old. Her basketball is
almost over and lost only 1 game. Gma and Gpa
froze their butts at Jax's football game on the
3rd. Yippy they WON against Gpa's home town!
We spent 2 days washin' windows and have 1 day
left to go! The garage is still waiting for its
big cleaning. The usual laundry,meals and cleanin'.
Gma took me to the Vet for my nails.Rode to town
with her and rode home with Gpa in the pickup!
1ST. for auto switcher-roo.... They both had errands
and both had to have a FLU shot. Then Gma went on to
the hair appt.,library and grocery store. Gpa and I
came home and piled up more plants in the garden.
I caught a garter snake,a mouse and some big hoppers!
Today is laundry day before Gma goes for her massage.
She cancelled last week...as she wasn't goin' out in
the hard rain and 45 mph WIND! We don't know where
all our time goes?????????????? We are pickin' away
at the fall list. We know we are makin' progress but
it just seems so SLOW! Gpa sold 50 yearlings yesterday
and they did really well...We are so Happy!
Both Gpa and Gma are Pooped out, but pluggin' along!
Myself, I'm nappin' alot.....Wearin' t-shirts and light
sweaters........I don't much care for the cooler temps.
September was beautiful and warmer than normal. So far
October is cooler than normal and WET!
We send our prayers to all those in South Dakota that
received the 3 and 4 feet of snow last weekend. Gpa
heard of 1 rancher who lost 200 stock cows in the
blizzard! We know of at least a 1,000 homes who are
still without electricity. We heard on the news that
the repair to power lines and poles would cost:
ARE YOU READY FOR THIS????????
OVER 15 MILLION SMACKEROOS!
as the Toast and Roast Doxie,I am so Happy the
SNOW missed my house....Dryer just buzzed!
Gotta Go! Gotta Go! HOOOOOOOOOOOTTTZZZZZZ clothes!
I have HOT LAUNDRY!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE HOT LAUNDRY
ESPECIALLY ON WET RAINY DAYS...
HUGGIES AND KISSIES,
CRAZY LAZY MAZY
