It's depressing...

.....the weather I mean.  All gray, gloomy and rain on and off.  Poor Oreo spends most of the day on the back of the sofa staring out the window.  I sure hope the May flowers are in abundance with the April wet weather. 
Even more depressing is the bad behavior of people.  There have been two murders within 24 hours here last week.  Police are still trying for figure if they are connected.  How do you get people to learn to deal with problems in a better way.  Life is too precious to use violence to settle a disagreement.  In addition there have been about 6 or 7 hit and runs. One resulting in the death of two people on motorcycles.    Though it was a tough decision to make, I commend the dad that turned in his own son for the death of those two motorcyclists he hit and ran.  I really feel for the man.  Had to be the hardest thing he ever had to do.  
I don't know if I ranted about his before but there is a neighbor on the next street who lets his dogs out without a leash.  Needless to say they seem to think our yard is their dumpling grounds.  We carry a bag for out own little dog so our nieces and nephews little children are not stepping in Oreos business.  They play here a lot as we have a big yard.  Danielle has chased them out of the yard twice.  This morning it happened again and my hubby decided they need that stuff in their own yard.  He took a bag out, picked it up and went over and dumped it in their yard.  LOL!  Trying not to have to report them, but if it keeps up we will have to.
Sorry this is such a downer.  Just had to vent a little. 
One a upnote.  My daughter has an interview tomorrow for a new job.  I sure hope she gets it, as she's not real happy at the place she is at.  I pray it all goes her way.

Wake up call.

It's 4:30 in the morning and a paw is tapping the cheek. Maybe if it's ignored, he will go back to sleep. 
 Nope, a few seconds later another few taps.  Lay still and pretend you didn't feel it. Nope.
Then the scratching that shakes the whole bed starts.  That doesn't seem to be doing the job and getting her to to get up. 
How about shaking the head so hard it sounds like the ears helicopter blades.  Boy she is being stubborn this morning.
Aaaah, I have it.  How about kisses all over her face.  Eureka!  She's sitting up. 
SHE CALLED ME A PEST!  Can you believe that.  I just wanted to go outside and do my thing.  After all, she goes when she wants to.
Now that I've taken care of the morning wake up routine, I think I'll take a nap. 
I'm Oreo and by the way, I'M A CUTE PEST.

Lobster Red

Well almost.  I'm a bad girl.  Did just what the Doc said not to do. Stay out in the sun.  We sat out in the yard Sunday, enjoying the beautiful day, and got my face sunburned.  It really didn't seem like the warm but you know how it is when you don't really feel the sun too much. After all I did have my coat on as it wasn't that warm.  Just didn't have tha heart to take Oreo inside.  He was enjoying it so much watching and playing with the kids.  
I really need to get to more reading.  I have been buying books for my kindle but just don't have the time to sit and read as much as I'd like.  Now that they are taxed at purchase here I don't have to hold back and keep account of every purchase for the tax lady.  Not that I like that there taxed.  Some pleasures should just be free, don't you think?
Went to a benefit for a dear lady that got throat cancer and must say what a success it was.  It makes you feel so good when people turn out and are willing to give for others.
Had a surprise party for my grandson's 30th birthday.  It's funny because his birthday isn't until May, but he's such a nosy little stinker his wife pulled and fast one and had it early.  Well it worked.  He really was surprised.  Fun was had by all.
Oreo is a little stinker.  He doesn't care much for a bath.  I got everything ready and Jack brought him up and I shut the door (he'll try to run).  When he couldn't get out he lifted his leg and proceeded to show us what his opinion was by letting the shower curtain have it.  'Make me take a bath, I'll make extra work for you.'  LOL
Well better get on with it.  Nothing gets done sitting here.  Have a good day.
