Well, since the Superbowl is now is the books, I guess I can start a new blog, lol.
Lots of happenings here. 2 grands on the way (one any day now) and a wedding for our son. Couple of other weddings to attend AND still need to get down to see Mom in FL and Aunt, etc... This year will be non-stop.
Hoping all WU friends are doing well and still check in here and there. I truly miss the old days (and I wasn't even one of the founding members...I do miss ya'll though ;)
Weather has been very, very grey here. We've probably set records for no sunshine, lol. It's dismal. Very much looking forward to maybe just a little sunshine on our travels shortly.
Willow, our English Shepherd is doing well. Almost a year now. She's a handful. She's not real fond of strangers (true to the farm dog strain). Not real fond of new people and I have to be very, very firm with her to make sure I am the boss and not her.
Ok, that being said--She goes to doggie daycare while I'm at work and she is one of the best dogs there! They don't even know she is sooooo territorial here at the home! She's a doll there! Go figure. She is infinitely more challenging than the American Bulldogs I raised. Hardest dog I ever owned, but definitely the smartest and most interesting (primal, actually). More to come about Willow if I can really start dedicating a bit of time to blogging again.
We also have a new kitty who entered our lives this year! He's a hoot! Remy is a grey and white little short hair. He is very, very sweet and is about 8 mos. Must have been shipwrecked or in a dessert in another life...he is absolutely obsessed with water! Anything water!
Well, I'll keep ya posted on the storms due, and hopefully the good news soon! Wish us well with the flight to NV to Nellis and our dau and winds expected Weds...Ya'll know how much I HATE wind! grrrr.
Oh My Gosh! I forgot to tell you about my husband's accident! He's very lucky. He was coming home from the train, and he was T-boned in our little Elantra car by an F-250! It held up very, very well. He has been dealing with a few injuries, but is basically extremely lucky! It was totaled.
We had to buy a new car and opted to buy another vehicle which could get us through the next 10 years, towing boats, grands, etc...Sticker shock!!! Dodge Durango w/the hemi...fully loaded. We absolutely LOVE it! So far so good w/AWD but we haven't really been challenged with it yet this year with any snow, lol...
Ok, ramble scramble....I'll have to post another blog at this rate, because this one just got stupid long...
Stay well all ships at sea, or where ever you may be! Trains are going to bed here, and so should I!
Have a great Feb and let's try to get through the year of weather without any Tornado deaths! It's 2017! We're better than this...We got this! Let's get the word out a bit better, even if our voices are being a bit loud and annoying...maybe it will save some lives in this coming year :) It was so sad to see all the destruction early this year in the southern states. No more! Let's get everyone to pay attention!
