There’s a flutter of activity around here.  The fur-girls are wrapping up a week at the office.  Sissy still jumps up on the door, and Gretchen has actually gotten yappier  decided she’s a very aware watchdog, but as always, they’ve been a pleasure to have in the office. 

12-08 but Gretchen STILL assumes this pose every chance she gets

Tomorrow, we have a special celebration for what would have been my maternal grandmother’s 100th birthday.  She really wanted to live long enough to hear Willard Scott wish her a happy birthday, but it wasn’t meant to be.

In honor of Sadie’s big win, there’s a photo of my grandmother playing with my mother’s Scottish Terrier, Wallace.  My grandmother is actually the one who got us all hooked on terriers in the 1970s with her terrier mix named Pepper.

No Black Friday shopping here.  I might need to run buy enough CDs to burn six discs with a single photo, but I have to re-read the application requirements; surely, they just want one digital copy of the photo?  

What do you have planned for this post-holiday weekend?

    Just caught up on your posts for the week. Glad you guys had a good week, and I’m happy that Gretchen seems to be getting happier riding in the car with you. Today is my son Dan’s 24th birthday, and I already baked the cake! Woo Hoo for planning ahead! Shopping is easy. His truck needs brakes. I have a card and a checkbook. How much easier does life get? Have fun at the beach; I hope the weather’s good to you!

    On what would have been my Grandfather’s 100th birthday, everyone from his kids down to his great grandchildren each went out that evening, wherever they were, and ate ice cream sundaes, vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce and peanuts. That was his favorite. He would have loved the idea.

    I’ve been spinning and watching the Iron Bowl game. So far, it’s been a very interesting game. I’m hoping the second quarter is more of the same. 🙂

    that is a great photo of your little bugger climbed up on your shoulder.

    Who’s going to occupy me next week while you’re at the beach? Pouting already. Granted I wasn’t as good as normal about keeping you occupied and entertained this week 🙂

    Have a lovely weekend. Ours will be quiet, sewing, puzzle building. g

    I love that Gretchen can sit right up over your shoulder.

    Hi Channon,
    I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I think it would be so much fun to take Charli to work. I bet your dogs love it. No one wants to stay home alone :>) I love that picture of your grandmother. You can bet she is smiling down on you.

    I did the whole BF thing and got most of the shopping done. Still trying to finish up stuff for the bazaar. Doing laundry. Trying not to be overwhelmed.
