What A Dog!

Our dog, Mocha, flew a kite last Saturday....and not just any kite either...a Spiderman kite with a very long glossy baby blue tail. Of coarse she wasn't aware that she was doing something brilliant, although I like to think she knows she's capable of setting the bar higher for the rest of the hounds in the neighborhood. She was trotting along, on her steady eleven year old legs, looking for bushy-tailed rodents when my husband decided it was high time Mocha learned how to fly a kite. She proved to be a much better student than me, she takes direction better,doesn't give up, and doesn't care how foolish she looks trying. We fastened the string under her collar and she took off across the hill, she kept it up for at least five was really something! Mind you, I can't prove it... but my husbands cell phone sports a photo of her doing exactly that...honest! Sometimes Mocha simply amazes me...I'd be bragging about it, but she's very most Mutts are. Next week end ...maybe roller skating....

How cool is that! I love clever dog tricks/stories. I have two teacup poodles, I think the kite might take them for a ride instead of the other way around. LOL

My Favorite Photo

My Favorite Photo
I'm the twin troll on the right
I was born a twin, although I was the first one to appear, so maybe that makes me the normal one. Anyway, my mother was fond of Toni perms in the 50's and thought our straight blond hair could reap the benefits of that products curly promises......questionable! The hair solution was so nasty all the windows and doors had to be opened, any food product left out on a counter had a slight mystery flavor, the cat stayed outside for a week. And the end result...well, my twin and I refer to that period as the "duelling Bozo's"

"Absolutely gorgeous--even better than the photo! Lightning-fast shipping, impeccable packing, friendly correspondence. A perfect transaction."

"This is BEAUTIFUL!!! And it had the best shipping packaging of any thing I have ever recieved in the mail."


"Such a lovely creation! It arrived so quickly from overseas and the seller is very helpful and accomodating. I would love to own another one and I'm sure I'll be back to make another selection soon! thank you so much for all your help!"
