Snicker Saturday...Sing A Long

Hey Everyone!
Wow, it's already time for another Snicker Saturday!  This one is an AUDIO version, so turn those speakers up and listen in.   For most of the country I think this is deer season.  It definitely is here in my part of the country.  That means that hunters all wander off to the woods to their deer camps...some actually hunt, some do what these guys are singing about.   BWAR HAR HAR.

Luckily for us, Dad has my whole territory and our hill to hunt in.  No need for a camp.  I can tell you that Mom and I wouldn't put up with that craziness anyway!! BOL  Hope you enjoyed your weekly chuckle.


BTW:  Don't forget to stop over and see Sprinkles, my good furiend Wylde Chylde.  She's having a pawesome contest with a great giveaway!  Click her name to link over!  HURRY HURRY!!

Tune in tomorrow for the beginning of:

Half Full Friday

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I really love the cool Half Full Friday posts that our furiend Sprinkles always does and I keep meaning to do some of them myself.  If you haven't visited her, click on her name above to see her blog.   Anyway, I really want to pawticipate in this.   

Remember how this works...
Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009. We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us. So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives. The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that. They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week. I'm determined to find something good in each day. Are you?  For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.

Here's my list:
~ Even though it was a really long, long, difficult, hard wait...I finally got to open all of my Christmas pressies and they were all wonderful!

~ It wasn't anyways near deep enough to make piles and jump into them, but we finally got a good dusting of snow this week!  It was enough to do a few zoomies in.

~ While my peeps didn't get very many, I sure got a ton of holiday cards!  They filled a whole section of one wall!  Thanks to all of my furiends for sending them to me.

~ I am still deeply saddened at the loss for the Houston Pittie Pack, but I knew almost the instant that the Chip In for them reached $8,000 and I am so proud to be a part of Blogville.

~ Even though for some reason it's taken me furever, I think I'm finally in the swing of doing these Half Full Friday posts regularly now.

Okay, so there's my list for this week!   Thanks for inspiring me to keep at this Wylde One!  You're pawesome and this is a really great series.

Wordy Wednesday From Sarges Mom

Hello Everyone.  Sarge was kind enough to turn Mr Dell over to me for one post.

I wanted to take a minute to thank all of you in Blogville.
I may ramble a bit here, but I absolutely have to get this out in a post.

My Mom started blogging in Aug of '08.  You all know her as Frankie Furter's mom, Lana.  I was surprised at first because she is not a tech person.  Not a big fan of email, cell phones, etc.  She instantly loved it.   I am not a tech person either.  I hadn't owned a PC since the mid '90s and my cellphone is from 1996.  No need for a puter since I didn't email, don't facebook, etc.  In the Fall of 2010, Mom gave me a blog for Sarge.  She created it and set it all up because I was enjoying her blog stories so much.  I started taking my hubby to the library about twice each week to create a few posts and read a few.  I was instantly hooked and surprisingly, so was my husband.  We were both having too much fun to pack it all in at the library with their PC's.  Blogville was so enjoyable to us both that in January of this year we shelled out $600 to buy Mr Dell and then rearranged our living area so that it is the center of our household.   Just for the dogblog.     I think people thought I was crazy for not having a PC in forever, then were sure I was crazy for buying one just for the dogblog.    I don't care.    That's exactly what happened, and why.

Along with not being a tech person, I'm really not a very sociable person either.  I have my husband, whom I adore, my parents, whom I also adore, and Sarge, whom I also adore.  I have a very small circle of friends and co-workers whom I care very much for.  I am a homebody and do next to no other socializing.  Except for one thing.  This blog.  My hubby and parents, Sarge, a few friends, Sarge's blog.  This is the absolute truth.  We moved a family antique to be able to hang Sarge's tapestry so that it is above Mr Dell right in the middle of our house.  That's how important this all is to us.

I'm rambling and not getting to my point.  This blog shouldn't fit my life at all, but other than a few people and Sarge, it is most of my life.  Weird.  I hadn't really thought much about this until the past weekend.  Watching Blogville react first to Tucker's loss of his kitty, Scotsmad's loss of Kendra and especially the tragedy for the Houston Pittie Pack has effected me.  Sadly, we often lose beloved furiends in Blogville, but this is different.  I don't need to detail all of the specifics, you are all following them too.  I can't think of any other group that would act so fast and on such a large scale.  I know we hear about occasional other good deeds in our world, but this is different. 

Okay, really too much rambling here.  My point is that I want to thank all of you.  I need to thank all of you for being such a positive part of my life, my husband's life and my Mom's life.  The humor is so wonderful.  The adventures are so fun to follow.  The scenery and nature where many of you live is so fascinating to me.  The dramas and sorrows that happen are touching to me.  The creativity and talents are amazing to me.   I am totally entertained by everything I find in Blogville.  I am totally inspired and stunned by everything I find in Blogville.   I care more about what happens with Blogville than most other things around me.  I try to describe this all to my friends and co-workers and I know they sort-of get it.  Some even follow us.  But, I'm not sure I can come close to really explaining it to someone who isn't in it like we are.  I'm pretty sure I'm not explaining this very well right now either.  I hope you all understand this mess of a post.  I love my life exactly the way it is and Blogville is a big part of that.  It adds even more joy to my life.  I live a quiet life, but I'd love to have Santa's Sleigh so I could zoom around the planet and meet every single person and pet that has been involved in this.  All of you.    I wish -really, really wish- I could meet all of you.   Basically, please just know that I am thanking you all for being such an important, positive and big part of my life.  Thank you for that.

Sending my love and appreciation to all of you.
Sarge's Mom

Christmas Pressies...finally

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I've been waiting for absolutely ever to get to start opening my Christmas gifties!  Sagira sent me a package when she met my Mom last month and I've been impatiently waiting EVER SINCE to get to open it.  My Peeps finally came to their senses and said I could open one giftie, so I picked Sagira's.  Here is all the action:

OMD the Beggin Strips were delish!  I got one of those right away.
I needed my strength to properly initiate that pawesome new, green toy!
Boy, is it fun.  It bounces all crazy-like and squeeks super loud.

Thanks so much for my wonderful pressies, Sagira!  You're a fabulous shopper and a super-great furiend.   Merry Christmas to you and your whole pack and I hope you have an amazing 2012.

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I think it's time for official introductions.  I know some of you have been curious about this, so here are the newest members of my pack.

Yes, my weird Mom actually adopted these two.
They live in my house with us now.  Strange, huh?!?

ON A MORE SERIOUS NOTE, please see the Blogville Community Calendar for details about the Memory Quilt that WHN from Dachsies with Moxie is making for the Houston Pittie Pack.  She is asking us for pieces of fabric with special meaning so that she can sew them into the quilt. 

I have sent WHN my most favoritest Chief Of Police bandana to be used for this.
It will be my honor to have this material included in the memory quilt.

My dog has a flea.

My husband is a turkey.

And I'm playing possum...

Sorrow In Blogville

Hello Everyone.
My heart is heavy today, my furiends.  I'm sure many of you have already heard about the loss the other day of our sweet Kendra from Scotsmad.  Now, our loss is amplified by the news of the terrible tragedy for the Houston Pittie Pack members Guero, Coco Chanel, Tiger, Lucky and Shelby.  If you haven't stopped by with words of support, you can click on their links above.  I have updated our Blogville Community Calandar with the following related announcement from Pip and Mayzie and Princess Coco:

Pip is organizing an Occupy Your Couch protest event. Send your couch potato pix to him at mrpippipATgmailDOTcom and watch for the posts on 12-3, 12-10, 12-14 and 12-17-11.
In support of the Houston Pittie Pack who has suffered a terrible loss, Pip is holding a Comment-A-Thon on 12-17-11 the last day of this event.  Proceeds to benefit our furiends and honor the memory of Guero, Coco Chanel, Tiger, Lucky and Shelby.

Also: Mayzie is announcing a Chip In to help the Houston Pittie Pack family.  Here is the addy for this event.  pittiepackfirerecoveryfundDOTchipinDOTcom/sandrasDASHfireDASHrecovery.
Also:  Princess Coco is announcing a Comment-A-Thon for the Houston Pittie Pack starting at midnight tonight.  Click on her name to activate the link to her blog.

Please stop by to pawticipate.  Thanks Pip, Mayzie and Princess Coco for being such inspirational furiends.
How strange that I received the Christmas card from Scotsmad the day Kendra left us and in today's mail for me was the card from the Houston Pittie Pack.  Like a last touch for good furiends before their journey.

My heart goes out to all of us who are sorrowful.  Sending mournful howls to the void.

Hey everyone!
Wow, I've been running the Blogville Commuity Calendar site for awhile now and I thought I should check back in with you, my good furiends and see what you think.  I'll take any questions, answers, concerns, complaints, suggestions with welcome paws!  BOL  Be honest, please.

It has not been hard to run, so I think I'll keep it up if you all find it to be valuable. 

I have had a few suggestions already.  Frankie felt it would be better if it posted every day so it would always pop up fresh for the followers.  Great idea and I'm doing this already!  Thanks, Cuzz.  Good one!  Someone else asked if I could add barkdays, blogaversaries, gotchadays etc.  I thought about that and even tried to start a list, but it seemed really long and I wasn't sure where exactly to put this.  I agree it would be really nice to have, but I basically gave up on this one.  Maybe I'll think about it again over the long, boring winter and try another shot at it.   Also, Sugar gave it a great makeover awhile back and it looks better.  Thanks Sugar for helping me out!!

Here is a badge that my good furiend Bailey made for us to use.  Feel free to use it if you want, I think she meant it to be for anyone.  Thanks, Bailey!!  I really appreciate this!

So, this was longer than I intended.  All I am really looking for is some honest feedback.  So, paw it to me!

PeeEss:  Speaking of events, don't forget to check out my 12-10-11 post for details about My Peep Is A Flake coming in January!
