"A dog, I maintain, is a very tolerable judge of beauty, as appears from
the fact that any liberally educated dog does, in a general way, prefer a woman to a man" -- Frances Thompson

Hi my dear friends,

I am back home, finally, where I belong with the Mommy but I am not very happy because she went & left me at Jody's for an extra day....a whole extra day!! I'm not saying I didn't have a good time with Jody and everybody else, but I missed the Mommy soooooo much! She got home yesterday afternoon and asked Jody's Mommy if I could stay with them until today because she was exhausted. We can't post any pictures tonight so I'm just gonna tell ya what happened. Tomorrow, if blogger is cooperating ,we will have some pictures to show you just how much as missed the Mommy. I cried & stayed by the front door until it was time for bed Friday night and then Chris had to come & take me to bed. I didn't eat hardly anything while I was at Jody's house but as soon as we got home, I gobbled down a Beneiful beef stew dinner in record time. Then I found out that Tippy, my little doggie cousin, got to sleep with the Mommy Friday night and that she got BACON for breakfast Saturday morning. The Mommy even took a video of Tippy eating bacon!! How rude!! I never get bacon!! and how dare she cuddle with MY MOMMY!!

Now just why was the Mommy exhausted? Not because she lost all our money "it was only $250.00, Mona" but because she, my Aunt Pam and Shirley stayed up all night talking. Why? MY AUNT PAM WON $10,000.00!!!!! Yes, it's true. She was playing poker, the Mommy only plays slots, and won the Poker House Jackpot. I don't really understand but it was something about her having 4 of a kind and getting beat by the only hand that could have beat her, a straight
flush. Aunt Pam got $10,000.00, the straight flush got $5000.00 & everybody else at the table got $800.00. Does anybody understand this? Well anyway, the Mommy and Shirley had already gone to the hotel room when Aunt Pam called with the was exactly 12:09 am. Shirley was so excited, she said she didn't think she would be able to sleep, but the Mommy had no problem & went to sleep. At 2:30 am, the Mommy cell phone went off & guess who it was? Aunt Pam!! She was too excited to sleep and wanted to know if she could come over and talk. My Uncle Sonny didn't want her to go because they were given cash and he didn't want to leave the safety lock unlocked so she could get in with the key. FINE!! she told him "I'll just stay the rest of the night with the girls"
Now if any of you know 3 Italian girls like these 3, you know that they talked until 5 am & then went to sleep. "Mona, there was an electric storm too!!" OK...there was a storm that knocked out the lights from 3 am until 5 am and who can sleep during all that thunder & lighting. So that was her excuse for mot picking me up last night. I forgave her, of course. because she is the Mommy, after all.

Sorry we couldn't post any pictures but maybe tomorrow, if the hurricane in the Gulf doesn't come this way, we can post some pictures.

Love to all.....Mona & the Mommy too!!
