Things That Made Me Smile Last Week

Please click on "The Daily Puppy"!! Proceeds will go to help build a new spay and neuter clinic in Newnan. Having a spay-neuter clinic will help the community and the animals so there's not so many litters born that can't find homes. It is a cause near to my heart..........

A few things that made me smile this week...........

Our new friend Christian applauding himself after blowing out the candles on his birthday cheesecake. Christian was a tugboat captain and played a big part in the building of The Panama Canal. What an interesting man he is, and that's his beautiful wife Michelle there with him. She hand makes stunning jewelry out of semiprecious stones and rocks.

In the forefront here, is another new friend Andreas and his pup Buddy. Andreas is a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Auburn. He cooked a wonderful meal of smoked chicken, beef and pork short ribs, grilled fresh veggies and a smoked cabbage fresh from his garden that was out of this world. Another very interesting new friend who I can't wait to get to know better. That's our great friends the Foster Failures and Prince and I at the back of the table..........

My Border Collie Miss Roxie always makes me smile. I showed pictures of the day I picked up Roxie a few months ago when she was abused and skin and bones. Now she is so beautiful with her shiny healthy coat and she's such a sweet darling girl............

My handsome boy Gus. Gus had the ole "fix" this week, poor guy. I hope he doesn't mind me putting his business out here like this. He is the most lovable oaf and I adore him..........

My beautiful girl Sophie our Rag doll cat. She too is a rescue who was about to be put down if someone didn't take her. She is such a loving girl...........

The next two shots are artwork I received from my gal, beautiful soulbrush, in London. I inquired about her beautiful art and she sent me these pictures from across the pond. I LOVE them and will show them again when I have them framed. Thanks again soulbrush. You're awesome........

I saw this cool old truck beside a dirt road that begged a snapshot........

I passed this old church and couldn't resist a quick snap. Such character..........

I had my hands treated with warm paraffin at the Wellness Fair I participated in Saturday. After coating my hands with warm wax they were wrapped in bags to dry. It felt so warm and wonderful...............

It's going to be another great week at our house!!! Pursue happiness each and every day............it's a decision you won't regret. If you look for beauty in everything, you're sure to find it.
