Redefined by Cancer

Yay!  What a relief to get good results from a mammogram!

Some days I feel like I am on a roller coaster.  I have been waiting at the highest point of that roller coaster for over a week for the result.  Anxiety building. Today I coasted down the tracks, an exhilarating and happy ride to the bottom.  Anxiety gone!

Happy weekend!

Stitching for Charity, Nancy’s Angels

We we worked this summer knitting these kits.  Children’s hats with cute stuffed animals on top.  These are donated to two elementary schools in our community.   These schools have a high percentage of disadvantaged families. The children don’t have basics like a warm hat for winter mornings.

I spy a Bronco hat too.  Hopefully one true fan will want it!

Competition and Today’s Haiku

My human brother brought this home for Mom.  She immediately hugged him and put him where I can’t reach him.

  • a new intruder
  • try to usurp my cuteness
  • i resist and win!

He isn’t handsome enough or cute enough for a photo shoot with Mom!

2017 Operation Christmas Child

Your gift shoeboxes are are due to the distribution center this week!

Mom figured out how to track our boxes so we will know where the recipient lives.

Our boxes might go to children right here in the USA, or anywhere around the globe!

I wish we could have kept the pink doggie!

Rescue doggies to shoebox recipients. Merry Christmas!

This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Whoa Mom!   A big bunch of treats this week.  One of the stores was having buy two get one free!

Freeze dried chicken hearts! Yummy!

More turkey feet, yay!  Mom got sucked in by the advertising promise “Wag More Bark Less”

Extreme dog treats do not include our regular daily dog treats.  Mom is at the pet stores more than grocery stores!

Roscoe, Monty and Henry wishing you Bone Appetit!

2017 Operation Christmas Child

Henry here with a blog post about what we did this evening. Me and mom packed our shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.

Me, Roscoe, Monty and Mom, all give up a little bit of our treats so we can send a couple of shoeboxes full of goodies to children who may not get anything for Christmas.

We did one boy and one girl shoebox. Mom gets the plastic shoeboxes so the kids can use them forever.  We put wash cloths, small towels, bandanas, t-shirts, school supplies and toys in each box.   Mom put Kleenex!  We put pencils, crayons, colored pencils and two small notebooks.

My favorite is the pink stuffed doggie!  We couldn’t put a live puppy but this is pretty cute.

I also loved the balsa wood airplane some lucky boy is getting.   He can dream of being a pilot some day.

This year mom is going to try to figure out how to pay for the shipping online so we can track where our boxes go.

Rescue doggies to shoebox recipients.  Merry Christmas!

Warui Kozo and the Futon Yokai

Henry here with a guest post.  I am sitting on the doggie futon in this picture.

Here I am playing with a Halloween toy, doesn’t the futon look okay?

Well Mom caught me pulling some stuffing from the doggie futon.

She said I was a warui kozo, a bad stinker or brat.  I tried to tell her that the Futon Yokai was possessing me but she would have none of it.

The Futon Yokai is incredibly clever.  It has possession of the doggie futon and is enjoying tormenting me.  You would think it would want to protect itself.  But no, it is also a warui kozo and even if I shred the doggie futon to oblivion and it loses its home it is happy if it gets me in trouble.

Bad bad Futon Yokai, I hope Mom can feel its presence soon so she’ll understand what is going on….  You believe me don’t you?
