A Bunch of Stuff

Hey everyone,
I'm done thinking for now. That much thinking makes my brain very tired.

First I want to send some good vibes out to all those that are going to be affected by Ike. My mom's grandma lives in Arkansas and she called last night to say that they are getting a ton of rain from it. They've already set up a base near where she lives to help after Ike is done being mean. She said there's already a bunch of people coming in that evacuated. My Dad's uncle lives near Houston and they boarded up the windows (they saved their stuff from Rita) and have the generator ready. Grandma wasn't very happy that they decided to stay again, but Grandma worries about everybody in her family and when they're in the way of something big like Ike, she goes into major worry mode.

I keep forgetting to post that I got an award from Ben. Thanks Ben!!!!

Speaking of Ben, if you've been on DWB lately you may know that my mom and Ben's Mom are in charge of a celebration for the 1000th member! Can you believe DWB is that big? My mom and Ben's mom are working on some ideas for the celebration so if you have any ideas for them, be sure to let us know. I'm thinking Mom should do 1,000 posts in 5 days, but she doesn't seem to think that's a good idea or possible. Maybe if we started going on adventures again we'd have 1,000 fun things to talk about!

I made sure Dad brought home the right dog yesterday. It is definately Sasha. Mom was a little frustrated when the weather turned rainy and gloomy this morning because it never fails, whenever she schedules Sasha to get a hircut, it gets cold and then Sasha shivers and whines for 2 or more weeks. It was hot all week until this morning and that's cuz Sasha got a haircut yesterday. Sasha's pretty cute after a haircut, but I do't have any pictures for you because she won't come out from the blankets unless she really has to go outside so Mom hasn't been able to get her picture. Mom set up several blanket stations throughout the house for her. Don't worry about her though, tomorrow and Sunday we're supposed to be back to sunshine and higher temperatures.

Sasha didn't have a belly under that fur so NO DIET!!! WOOHOO!!! Grandma was told to cut back on our snacks though. I say if we're not getting fat, then she's doing okay, but Mom says winter is comign and we're usually less active inthe winter and we both gain weight. I think she forgets how big this new house is so I hve plenty of room to excercise dring the winter. Ohwell, at least we're not going on a diet!

I'm hoping to get back to Artsy Fartsy Fridays soon. I think they're kind of fun, plus it's fun embarassing Mom. She has self-esteem issues so when you guys tell her how cool something is, she blushes and doesn't know what to say. I showed you the tiger and the glacier lake photo which are a couple of her coolest pieces, but I've got some really cool stuff to show you still. We're having a yard sale this weekend and then hopefully she can set up her studio in the garage and get back to work on more stuff for me to show you.

Stay safe this weekend everyone and if you are in a stormy area be sure to post when you can to let everyone know you're safe!! Next week I have a few fun posts planned like a new blog my Mom has started, my new friend and a fun trick I learned with my new id tag (that one's the best, you don't want to miss it!!!)

Have a good and safe weekend everyone!!!

We will have to do some major thinking to see if we can think of anything for the 1000th member. Maybe 1000 paw-prints??

Hi, Kaos!
No diets! That is great news!
I will have my paws crossed for all who are in Ike's path!
1000th Member! I am sure your Mom is preparing something great!
Kisses and hugs

We don't want to think as much as you do. 1000 members are a lot. We are sure that they will come up with a good idea.
We are looking forward to Artsy Fartsy Friday to return.

Hello Lady Kaos!

How exciting that you and your Mom are in charge of the big celebration. We have an idea ... tell our mom to get the Paw It Forward Randomizer up to date! There are so many new dogs who aren't on the Randomizer we are embarrassed for her.

We are on the west side of Ike so we are getting plenty of rain and wind. We hope our house in Houston is okay. It sounds like it was pretty bad there. It is pretty bad here and we are 100 miles away!

Hope your mom's family are doing okay. Paws and fingers will be crossed at hour house.

Our toad relocation program is actually working now. Haven't seen one in a week or more. I think there was just a bumper crop of them this year getting hatched. We've lived in the same house for 6 years and this is the first summer where they've been a problem.
