Gotta get my ducks in a row......

I took this photograph today after work. These little beauties live in the stream that runs by the back of the building.

They like hot dog buns. Stale ones. You know, the ones that are left over with that whole"one bun more than a hot dog" thing?

Sooo, I get to thinking about what a bad blogger-buddy I am. I mean, I have 2 friends that I'd like you to visit and I haven't even mentioned them yet.

"I need to get my ducks in a row"..I thought...(I wonder if I need "quotation" marks when I'm "thinking"? And why do I "think" in italics?? Hmmmmm...)

OK, so one is Betty. She lives in Arizona and knows my sister Kathy.

Betty loves dogs, animals, the beautiful dessert and the remote-controlled-jet-builder-flying Mr. N.

Her blog is a wonderful mixture of her rescued pups, her humor and her kindness. Please stop by and welcome her at

Then I recently met a new Grandma - her name is Deb and she actually lives close to my kids....and I am not the least bit jealous....or envious...or sad....or lonely...

Her fun blog is

And a big thanks to Brenda at She had given me an award - and I am nominating all of you who so kindly stop by and leave fun, interesting and loving comments. You rOcK!!

And then there's Karin, the blogger formerly known as 'madrekarin' - she's taking a blogging break and hopefully, when the spirit moves her, she'll be back..She sent me this simply adorable necklace -

Even the packaging was delightful....many, many, many thanks!

I sometimes think I am just about the luckiest person in the world...then I remember, "Oh yeah...I AM!!"

OK, so now all my ducks are in a row....have yourself a wonderful Thursday and remember to wash, brush, floss and flush................and call your Mother! (even if she's in Heaven.)

You are too kind with your words. Thanks for mentioning my blog, although I'm "runnin' on empty" for ideas today. I'll either have to think harder or just put in some of my favorite dog quotes.

I've been to Deb's site and love it. I'll go by Brenda's and check it out.

Love ya.

Hahaha! It me, the "formerly known as" gal. I'm so glad the necklace arrived! (And safely.) Wear it with a wink in your eye and a chuckle in your heart! :)
I'm off to read these new blogs you've shared. I love finding new blogs.
Take care, friend.
