The Mystery of Marley

Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a true story.

We have a cousin named Marley who is surrounded by a deep mystery.

Late one evening, it was close to Christmas, our Uncle Den and Auntie Kris returned home from a people outing with friends.

As the opened the door they could hear some not human noises.  They crept carefully into their home (we might have done this different).  In the center of the entryway floor sat a large crate, the noise was coming from this crate.  They slowly approached the crate and peered in. (Does this really seem wise and safe?)

Not to fear!  Inside was the cutest puppy ever, our cousin Marley.

That is when the big fight broke out.  The deal was no more puppies and they accused each other of bringing a puppy home.  (People are not very smart, they were together all evening so a third human had to have brought that puppy into their home.)

Well they couldn’t kick a puppy into the street so they decided to keep him until they could decide what to do with him.  One day turned into two, days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months and Marley has been there now for years.

Auntie and Uncle never did figure out the giver of Marley had to have a key to the house….  Us dogs can keep a secret and we won’t ever tell.

Henry, Roscoe and Monty

P.S.  Our Mom really had nothing to do with the Marley mystery but because she is our Mom so she does know who the culprit is and has promised not to tell.  Don’t keep secrets from your Mom.

Mystery Selfie and Donating Blood at the Lafayette Peach Festival

imageI received this selfie  last night and I have no clue who these people are.  I don’t know any of the people that were copied on it.

They look so happy I decided they needed a story.

Meet Andrea Anderson, Andrea Breeze, and Josh Banter.

They’ve known each other since first grade. They grew up in the small town of Lafayette Colorado, a suburb of Denver.   There was only one elementary school and their class was so small they went to first through six grade with the same kids each year.   The teachers always sat their students in alphabetical order, three kids to a long desk.   It was always Andrea, Josh, and Andrea at the first desk.   They became best friends.

The little town of Lafayette where they grew up had its first peach festival in 1999. Andrea, Andrea and Josh have been going to the peach festival every year since then.   It was a place their folks let them go when they were kids without supervision.

They still pig out on peach smoothies, peach cobbler, peach pie, and the newest addition peach pizza.

There are tons of vendors there and every year Andrea Anderson buys a new ring, Andrea Breeze buys a new necklace,  and Josh gets a barbecue turkey leg.

Even though the temperature this year was in the 90s, Josh was wearing his signature T-shirt and long sleeves.  His secret is that he’s got some tatoos he wishes he could get rid of it. He has one right at the base of his throat and many on each arm so he always wears a T-shirt and a long sleeve shirt.

One other thing they always do? They always donate blood at the mobile blood van.

Well what do you think?  Should I send them a link to this blog post and see who they really are?
