"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it animals are treated." ---- Ghandi

Hi dear friends,

Oh my goodness , it has sure been a windy day today and cold here in Houston too. Today is the Houston Fat Stock Show and Rodeo Parade and I bet all them horsies are cold standing in the wind. I just don't understand....we had the A/C on Wednesday and Thursday & tonight we're gonna have the heater on. The Mommy said it's just the usual Texas weather. If it's gonna be cold it, should stay cold and if it's gonna be hot, it should stay hot.......no happy medium in this part of Texas. Oh well, the Mommy said she wouldn't want to be live anywhere but TEXAS!! But she sure does like to travel everywhere else to visit.

Anyway like a said last night, it's just me and Mommy today. We slept late and then Mommy decided to go get us some breakfast at her favorite breakfast place Denny's. She brought me back a scrambled egg and put some cheese in it for me to take my Sentinel (heart worm/flea medicine). She didn't fool me...I knew my pill was in with it but I'll do anything for scrambled eggs & cheese. It was YUMMYLICIOUS!!

The Mommy took these pictures outside the Denny's. They are so pretty and it looks like spring has sprung but tomorrow they are gonna all be dead. The Mommy is so sad because it is so drab around here right now & once in a while it's nice to see something bright instead of dead grass like in my backyard.

Since its so windy, Mommy said I could help her do my lazy day post with her because it was too windy to be outside. Our poor wind chimes are taking a beating and some have already been knocked down. Mommy say you can never have enough wind chimes so I guess when she finds so spare money, maybe will get some more. She took a little video of how windy it has been.
I'm ready Mommy.

Where's she at?

Talk about ancient. Look at the rotary phone.....I told ya she was old.

In case you was wondering what I was looking at on the screen saver, it's Nikki,
one of Mommy's fosters that would have been my sister had I been nicer to her.
Nikki was very sweet but she took to much attention away from me and since I was the Alpha female behind the Mommy, I wasn't very nice. I am so ashamed!!

So whats happening today you ask? Nothing and it is wonderful. While the Mommy has been loading videos (that take forever) I have been sitting on her lap letting her massage my head and play with my ears. She says my ears feel as soft as a pig's ear......Now wait a minute Mommy....I am not a pig!!

To show you how windy it is today, the Mommy took some videos. Poor, poor flowers.

Not so windy...

Very, very windy...

and here are my poor wind chimes.
Isn't the music pretty.

The Mommy said we are going to spend the rest of the day, between washing & drying clothes, catching up on blog reading. She as been so neglectful of my friend's blogs lately. So gotta go now.

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all.........Mona

Your mom and our mom feels the same way about wind chimes, Mona - you can never have enough of them!
Mom says that she hasn't seen a rotary phone in YEARS! We have no clue what a rotary phone is!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Look at all those wind chimes - they sound so nice.

Mom brought one of those rotary phoes out one day for the oldest grandbiped to play with and she wanted to know what it was??? She had no interest in it at all - she prefers a cell phone.

The flowers were very pretty - we got snow here in the Kansas City area.

Woos, the OP Pack

Kisses and hugs

Hi, Mona & Mommy...

We love your wind chimes...Especially the angel one...

My Mom laughed when she saw the old rotary phone...She wanted to know if your Mom remembers the old Princess Phones...I don't know what she's talking about...Do you?

I'm glad you liked my Memories Slide Show...We made it to post on my Birthday...

It is that windy here today too, but we only have 2 wind chimes. Mom loves them also. We have a phone like that, but it has buttons, so maybe that is like 2 years newer?? lOL
