Pics from Australia my Son and DIL took

My DIL had to go to Australia for part of her school degree and attend a poultry conference over there. So my son decided it was a great opportunity for him to get to go also since he would only have to pay for his plane ticket, the school was taking care of her expenses. They were gone for 2 weeks and got some really nice pictures. Some of my favs I am posting here.

My Kids Left for Australia

My son and daughter in law left this evening for 2 weeks in Australia. She had to go for part of school where she is getting her PHD. So the school is paying for her to go. My son just had to buy his ticket and come up with some extra spending money. They both figured if he didn't go with her while her way was paid they would probably never get another chance to go. I talked to them when they were leaving the Atlanta Airport for LA. There they have a 3 hr layover then get on the plane for Australia. They will loose Sunday cause when they get there with the time difference it will be 7am Monday morning Aussie time. I told them I wanted lots of pictures of Kangaroos and Koala Bears and stuff!! I just pray they will have a safe trip there and back. We have it set up where we can actually talk over the computer, kind of like skype but another program my son uses when he plays WOW (World of Warcraft, I think it is.)

Tomorrow d/h and I are going to go out for breakfast and then head up to Williamsburg to the outlet mall and the antique mall there. Taking the doggers too since they can ride in their little cart and go in both places. Heres a pic of them in their cart from Vacation back in Feb.

My Company is gone!

Had my DIL here since Wednesday, my son was not able to come. She was here for her little sisters graduation. Her mom had found them the cutest little kitten that came into the spca where she works. Just what they need another cat, they already have 3 plus 2 dogs but couldn't turn down this little cutie. My pups played alot with her but now she has to go to Alabama to their house and meet the big yellow lab and the bulldog...that should have been interesting last night. We took her to the airport with kitty in her little carrier that she could take on the plane with her. Shes a real cutie!

Rest In Peace Sweet Baby Dog

I knew it was time but I didn't want to let go. My heart is still very heavy this morning and its so quiet not hearing him bark when a strange car comes down the street or there is something out of the ordinary going on. No more pain, no more suffering...I had to do that one last thing for him and let him go. It hurts so bad.

103 temps ~ already sick of it!

Its been just horribly hot here and even hotter this weekend we spent in Charlotte, NC. Heat index was 108 today and more of it for tomorrow. Seems too early in June to be having these kinds of temps.

Enjoyed out little weekend trip down to Charlotte, NC. My son and his wife met us up there from Alabama and we spent the weekend at a hotel there. Went antiquing but didn't find much of anything. Seems to get harder and harder to find good stuff. D/H treated both me and our daughter in law to new purses when we stopped by an outlet mall. Hers is a Coach and mine is a Dooney. We sure enjoyed seeing the kids but it just went by too fast and wasn't long enough!! Here are a couple of pics from the weekend!

My Favorite Tree

I have always loved the weeping willow trees. We had one when I was a kid but they planted too many trees for the size of the front yard and that one was so close to the house and got so big they had to have it removed. So finally I decided I wanted to get one for my yard. We planted this alittle over 10 years ago and it was just a spindly little thing. It has grown into a huge gorgeous tree and thankfully we planted it away from the house so it can get as huge as it wants to!!

Since I had my camera out I had to get a couple pic of my doggies. Megan didn't even wake up from sleeping under my desk. Marley and can't sneak nothing by those two!

Va Tech Hokie Birds

We were in Blacksburg, VA last weekend Home of Va Tech and since my daughter in law graduated from there of course we are fans so had to go to the bookstore and get T shirts etc. She wanted a couple of new ones since she likes to wear her VA Tech shirts at Auburn Univ. (cause once a "hokie", always a "hokie" where she is getting her PHD. Anyway since the last time I was there seems they have all these 5 ft tall Hokie Birds all around town suppose to be 75 different ones. We were in a hurry so I only got pics of 2 of OH and btw...they cost 7500 bucks a piece!!

Dogs and booster shots..

Yesterday I took both Megan and Morgan to get their shots updated since they were due but didn't plan to do it all at once time. Tried to book them several weeks prior to their regular groomers and no way could I get an appointment and of course their shots had just run out about 2 weeks here I go to a new groomer to get them in and of course they want updated shot records...which I am fine with that and think its a good thing. Just didnt have that much money set aside for all of it. Total bill was like $ Megan ran much higher cause she is a siezure dog on meds and they have to do an expensive test on her to check her levels since now she is on potassium bromide and has been for 4 years. They do a yearly testing on her and the test is almost $200.00. Well Ok I did they call me today and say the blood samples were not picked up last night and they need me to take her back to get a fresh blood sample...of course no charge..LOL...the cost of that test, they should come here to my house and get a blood sample with the price of gas..anyway...will have to take her back another time and they have to stick her again to get the blood for the test...I am not happy since, I had reason to be over there near the vets and had all this have to go back another time for the same thing I already did...its about 45 miles round trip but I will do it for her/Ms Megan!!!

Dog Harness Vests and Dresses

Something else I like to do in my spare time other than psp is making dog harness vests and dresses for my 3 pups. A good friend of mine got me started on them and the possibilities are endless. I like to make alot of them using second had baby clothes. No two are ever alike and you kind of have to figure it out as you go along to make it work. Of course the ones for the girls are cuter cause they have ruffles and bows. But I have made some pretty cute boy ones too! Here are some of the latest ones I have done.

And my Boy.

I know I am nuts but I just love making them...LOL
