The Three Colors of Labs

I might just as well rename this blog my dog blog......hey, but it's MY blog I can post what I want.....Anywho...this yellow lab is TANK....isn't that a great name???? He is my god daughter's dog and we had him for the weekend. TANK and Clancy had a GREAT time playing ball together....And I love that I have all 3 of them, the chocolate, black and yellow lab together. What a hoot!

A rant.....

My younger sister and I are a lot alike( is our older sister like us...she just hates to admit I am right on this!!!) one way are we ALL alike....and that is in rules......Many times in life, whether it is work or play, there comes a point where a line has been crossed.....and then you get the CHARMING side of our personalities....we claim we get this charming trait....bluntness.... directly from our dad ....

My sisters and I all have professions that have rules.....and we follow them. So don't be surprised when you are trying to get around the system...whatever it is....because you are "SPECIAL", -and I don't mean like Clancy is---or you're ill, or hormonal or frustrated or think the rules are for all but you........and we chose to remind you that there are RULES to follow and because YOU failed to plan for them.....this, in no way, makes it ok for you to yell, scream, be disrespectful, ungracious and flat out mean ....and think we won't make a comment on it....Because you would be WRONG. Here's a little tip for is hard to make me(us) feel guilty over YOUR bad behavior. Take responsibility for your bad behavior and apologize...or's an idea.....behave in the first place.

The inlaws or "outlaws"

I married a man that is the oldest of 10. Here is a picture of all of us in laws at the most recent family wedding. We did this picture by marriage other words...when you married into the family...I am the first (#1) daughter in law -and as it works out...the oldest in 3 months....#5's wife is only a few months younger than I am(she is in the pink dress) and we are both the same age as brother # 6....tells you I married an older man! We constantly tell each other that all 10 of the kids had the good taste to marry well! This is our Mother-in-law with us and we all agree we have the best MIL ever.(For those of you that can count.....sister #2 was actually married first but that marriage ended after 25 years in a divorce and brother # 7's wife was unable to come in from Singapore).We are a very International family--In order from me.....I am from West Virginia, K- Maryland, B-Chicago, O-Beijing, K-New York, G-Shanghai, S-Indiana, and J-from Germany (L-who was unable to come in from from London via Vietnam)....All 10 accounted for! OK Mom....did you keep up? I apologize for the picture as it is not very good quality....

A FIRST place dog!

AWWWWW. Look at me!!!! Aren't I special??

Who would've thought that Clancy would come in first place in his dog obedience class as well as the most improved dog in the class?? Certainly not me....especially after his styrofoam escapade!

A gaggle of groomsmen


I could have used this for ABC Wednesday for "G"!! (lol) Here are some of the groomsmen from the wedding. I think they are pretty darn handsome if I do say so myself! They are all cousins and my nephews...unless you are going by blood and then only my sons are related to me and the others are my HUSBAND'S nephews....but I don't count things that way!.

Just when you think you have him trained......

How much fun do you think Clancy had with this Stryofoam while someone was in the shower?

Nowhere NEAR as much fun as I did when I cleaned it up I can assure you (sarcasm added)......
