We had another nice sunny day here in New Mexico. The birds, squirrels and chipmunks were gorging out on the seeds that momma put out for them. In fact, today marked the second time one of the "guests" knocked down the larger bird feeder and helped themselves to the bounty within. The humans didn't see who has been doing this so when it was discovered momma righted it back up and this time tied it to a tree - LOL. And speaking of feeding the outside critters, momma discovered it is cheaper to buy a huge bag of whole or cracked corn instead of seeds as it lasts longer. The blue jays really like the corn as does the squirrel. The woodpeckers and smaller birds continue to eat the regular bird seeds so everyone is happy.
The weather forecast is for snow come Saturday and possibly even Sunday but then more sunny skies.
We have been begging momma to let us open some of our presents that secret Santa's sent us so she let us open one. It was filled with lots of really yummy stuff for the humans. There was three kinds of cookies (daddy grabbed the chocolate chip ones and said they were the best cookies he has ever eaten!) and he wouldn't even give me a tiny sample - can you believe that? Momma, who loves peanut butter, tried the peanut butter candies and then couldn't stop. Yup, she really enjoyed them, but at least she shared a tiny piece with me because I too like peanut butter. These candies were super soft and melted in ones mouth. I can't seem to stop thinking about them because they were that good.
Also in the package were three types of breads, fudges even wrapped pressies for Puffy and me (we have to wait until Christmas until we get to open those).
We received another package for a different Secret Santa but momma is making us wait until Christmas to open it. I just love getting pressies.
I would also like to thank everyone who has sent us a Christmas card. This year momma taped them up on the French doors in our bedroom. She choose this place because it's easier to clean the tape residue off glass than walls - BOL. All the pretty cards hanging on the French doors make our bedroom very cheerful. I tried to convince momma to hang so Christmas lights on the same doors but she refused - what a spoil sport.
Hugs and kisses,

Today as the humans were coming back from the mailbox, daddy drove down the road that is behind our house. Momma was riding shotgun in the passenger seat and off to the left she spotted something moving about. It was a flock of wild turkeys crossing the road.
Quick, look to your right, there is something over there...
Daddy stopped the truck and sure enough there was another flock of wild turkeys headed for the trees. Momma did have her camera with her and tried to take a picture but they were too fast for her. Daddy put the truck in park, and tried to follow them on foot, but they crossed onto someone's property so he had to turn back.
It looks like there are still plenty of turkeys for the taking if anyone wants to come hunt them down.
Now, on to the computer. As you know, momma has been having lots of problems with her computer. She was going to buy a keyboard to plug into her laptop but couldn't find any that she liked at Wal Mart so instead, she bought a new computer. This one is a DELL and it came with Windows 8 loaded into it. Too bad momma doesn't know how to use Windows 8 - BOL, BOL.
She has been on the internet all day long trying to learn how to do stuff - BOL, BOL. Maybe by next year she will have it all figured out.
Hugs and kisses,

We hope that we are back now...Daddy tried to disable the touch pad but in doing so, it also disabled the keyboard – BOL. The only alternative was to upgrade he windows program in hopes that installing it into the computer it would resolve the issues it had, or to leave the keyboard and touch pad disabled but add a plug in or wireless keyboard to momma's labtop. The cheapest fix was to leave the keyboard and touch pad disable and use a wireless add on keyboard that also has a touch pad. Daddy “loaned” momma his wireless keyboard with touch pad to use until they get to town and momma can pick out the kind she wants.
Anyhow, the curser issue appears to be resolved for now but daddy warned that he wrote a program that disabled the touch pad on momma's computer and he isn't sure if the computer will signal out this program as a virus and disable it.
Enough about the computer issue, this morning I begged momma to let me outside to do my business out front because it has the nice sidewalk Puffy and I can walk on without getting our feetsies muddy. We we allowed out for a brief time until we started barking our heads off. Momma wasn't happy about having to come outside and get us because the temps got down into the negative readings so it was pretty cold outside. She called and called but only Puffy went back into the house, I stayed outside barking, so momma had to come out and physically pick me up and take me back inside. About 10 minutes later, momma was in the kitchen and she happened to look out the nice picture window and not more than 25 feet from the house was a huge coyote sniffing around the yard looking for something for it's breakfast. Yes pals, it was making it's self right at home and even ate some of the crackers momma had put out for the birds earlier in the morning.
Momma got some pictures of the coyote stalking one of the Ravens that was also eating the crackers but hasn't downloaded them yet. She said she would post the pictures on my page if they come out.
Hugs and kisses,
