Anyway.... to my point. My husband and I wanted a Cardinal jersey, of course. We didn't want one of those cheap ones with the iron on numbers. We found a guy on Phoenix's Craigslist selling them for a price we could afford. We bought two of them and had them shipped Priority Mail.
........ My husband calls me this morning and asks: "Are you wearing your Cardinals Jersey right now?" I said: "Yes, of course!" "Well, guess what?"
My husband told me that the FBI just arrested some guy in Surprise, Arizona selling counterfeit jerseys on Craigslist. I watched the news and found out that's the same guy. I am wearing a counterfeit jersey - oops!

Howling.... Loud Howling.... I follow the sound to one of the bathrooms and find Bandit howling at the rug shampooer in the bathtub. Normally I leave it outside to remind the dogs that 1. If the rug shampooer comes in the house, someone is in trouble! 2. If the rug shampooer comes in the house, everyone goes outside and the dog door is shut!
Last night I had to use the rug shampooer. I didn't feel like putting it back outside. So I put it in the bathtub - I forgot it was in there. Bandit found it!
Bandit saying... "Mom, I found it! I found that big bad thing!" Hoooowwwwl "Someone please call 911 there's a rug shampooer in the bathtub" Hoooowwwwl

I was trying to get a feel of what "size" Bandit is. Bandit is now 5 months old and well over 55 pounds. The manufacturers make cute things for my little Papillon, Trixie. They make nothing for a growing Rottweiler!
After the two guys come to give me estimates for the new driveway, ( because we can't fit three big trucks on the current driveway) I going to head out to find proper Cardinal attire for the BIG day!
I love being retired. I finally get to take care of the fun things in my life.
God's Blessings to all **

I use to voice my very strong opinions on my blog. I figured it's "my" blog! I would reread the posting and then delete it. I'd think.... does anyone really care what I think?
I have eight grandchildren! I am so proud of all of them. None of these wonderful children were ever considered being aborted. Which gets me to my point.... The first thing on the new president's agenda is to sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). There are so many things that need to be addressed, our economy, our jobs, the mortgage crises, etc. There is no way a Christ Believing - Born Again President could sign this Act. But that is not what was voted in as President for the USA.
Was he voted in just because he is "black" ??? The media ( don't even get me started on the media) had him portrayed as a messiah. :( As he is sworn in today, I remember to "trust in the Lord." God has a plan!
Above is a picture of one of my grand daughters playing the piano during their church service. I am blessed!

My husband had Saturday, Sunday and Monday off, but.... Today they told him he was mandated to work. That also means the grandkids won't get to see the ocean ( this time).
I am excited.... and nervous.

Yesterday, I was out and about looking for the new office furniture. Among the many stores I went to was Costco Home. I didn't find any furniture but... I did find these cool looking "critters" for the new block fence we had put up last year. I took pictures of them to show my husband when he got home. While in the the store taking the pictures, the clerk asked me questions about where I would put them. I was thinking the "critters" around the pool and the big sun out on the front of the house. She said: "Boy, your house will stand out from the rest." I started laughing! I showed her the pictures I had taken of houses in my neighborhood. After she saw all of them (especially the "fish" house), "Where do you live?" I told her. Her eyes got big and said.... :)

This house is one block South of the "big" house. It is built into the ground with dirt and then the small peek-a-boo roof on top. Very unique house!

You're thinking.... "Couldn't you find a truck in Arizona?" Yes, but not like this one. $47,000 worth of bells and whistles! Now we'll have three trucks in the driveway. Looks like we'll have to do some driveway reconstruction.
So California Here We Come!
