Patch’s Last Moments

I kept saying I was going to video Patch singing and talking and I never did. 😦 I did video him one time-the first and last time. I am not very good at videoing-as you will see. You will also get to hear my lovely Southern accent as I talk and sing to Patch. This movie is 2:22 long.

When the Parents Are Gone

When the parents are gone, the dogs will play.

This reminds me of the black lab, Chloe, I once had.

I found the video (the one I tried to post last week) on YouTube!

Why? Why? Why?

Hump Day Humor Fourteenth Edition: Theme~Ponderisms/Ponderings

Why? Why? Why?

  • Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead?
  • Why do banks charge a fee on “insufficient funds” when they know there is not enough money?
  • Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

How Do I Live Without You

How Do I Live Without You

Leann Rimes

School is out for summer and I should be so excited, but I am having a difficult time right at this very moment! I used to always work 2 or three jobs. I kinda wish I had another job right now. I know I have a million things I need to be doing around the house, but that is at the house-and I am alone when Jedd goes to work or goes golfing! Ok-had to let it all out right now! Thanks so much for all of your prayers and support! Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

Singing in the Rain

A parent taped our Kindergarten Program we performed on Monday night. She taped from one side of the stage-so it isn’t the best view of everything-they really did a good job though!

Can You Solve This Puzzle?

Can you solve this puzzle?

You are riding on a beautiful white horse. On your left side is a drop off. On your right side are several ostriches being chased by a lion. In front of you are four large gazelles that won’t get out of your way and you can’t seem to overtake them. Behind you is a stampede of horses.

You Might Be a School Employee If…

Hump Day Humor Thirteenth Edition

Theme: School Employees

You Might Be a School Employee If…

  • YOU might be a school employee if you believe the playground should be equipped with a Ritalin salt lick.

When the Parents Are Gone

When the parents are gone, the dogs will play.

This reminds me of the black lab, Chloe, I once had.

Click here to watch the video-you will need Media Player (I believe) to watch it.

Come on back and let me know what you think!

I am having a little technical difficulties with this-will try to get to work later.

Anyone know how to add a media player video by chance?

  • It’s harder than it looks! Copy and paste into a new comment or post.
  • Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the following…
  • They have to be real places, names, things…nothing made up!
  • Try to use different answers if the person in front of you had the same 1st initial. (WHICH BY THE WAY IS HARD IF YOU ALREADY READ THEIR ANSWERS)
  • You CAN’T use your name for the boy/girl

Don’t Yell Across the House

Dog Tricks

This is really cute (email forward). Tell him to sneeze and see what he does! Love it! I have no idea how they do this: Make sure your volume is turned on and TYPE IN a command and see what happens… sit, roll over, down, stand, sing, dance, shake, fetch, play dead etc. and… it’s also very cute if you type in a command that’s not recognized! Make sure you type in ‘Kiss’ too, but do it last.

Rusty, this looks like you. I bet you can do these tricks too!

Click here: I Do Dog Tricks to play. Come on back and let me know what you think!

I Will Remember You!

I have so much I wanna tell you all-but I just can’t seem to do it right now! I have been so busy and when I am home-it is up and down for us. This song is for you Patch! I miss you so much! R.I.P. Patch!

God Wants Me To Tell You…

My Mom sent this to me on Saturday


Everything that is going wrong in your life today shall be well with you
this year. You have been destined to make it and you shall surely achieve
all your goals this year. For the remaining months of this year (2008),
all your agonies will be diverted and victory and prosperity will be
incoming in abundance. Today God has confirmed the end of your sufferings,
sorrows, and pains because HE that sits on the throne has remembered you.
He has taken away the hardships and given you JOY. He will never let you down.
I knocked at heaven’s door this morning, God asked me… My child! What
can I do for you? And I said, ‘Father, please protect and bless the person
reading this message’… God smiled and answered… Request granted.

So now I am passing it on to you 🙂

p.s. I go to pick up my baby, Patch today.

We had him cremated with one of his babies and we will be keeping his ashes.
