Friday Funnies

I have this problem with stray dogs; I can't leave them on the side of the road. Even though nine times out of ten, the dogs I find have been dumped from a passing car, I always have this image in my head of a distraught owner calling for the dog, children crying for their lost pet, and doggie mates whining for their friend. So when I saw the puppy in the road at dusk the other night, I just knew it was a lost puppy and not a dumped dog. After all, who would dump a small dog? So I had to stop. Well, I had to stop because it wouldn't get out of the road, so I guess I should say I had to save it. A small dog has less than a 1% chance of making it through the night outside around here, even inside a fenced yard. This one had no chance at all.

Scrap Happens

People often give me an odd look when I tell them my hobbies are gardening, quilting, and woodworking. Gardening and quilting, yes, but woodworking? But there are some similarities with quilting and woodworking, and one of them is scraps which seem to multiply like rabbits. I'd rather not have scraps, both with quilting and woodworking, but I can't throw away workable pieces and they come in handy too.

Friday Funnies - The Cat Scratcher

Soon after the new fence was built, the cat lost interest in his normal scratching posts and decided the fence posts were much better. I sprayed them with a cat repellent.   I sprayed him with water.  But nothing seemed to keep him away from the posts.

(almost) Wordless Wednesday - There's Probably an Interesting Story Here

2013 Google Earth streetview

Looks like it ought to be on an isolated ranch or on a mountain, but it was right in the middle of Rusk, TX.  Looks like a one room house.

There's No Rock Like a Faux Rock

In case you've been wondering why I haven't posted about anything I've been doing lately. That's because I've been too busy doing it to write about it. I've been making faux rocks.

Friday Funnies - A Troll Under the Bridge?

When we went to the Texas State Railroad last month, we decided to go into Rusk to see the longest footbridge in the country.

July 6 Is as Good a Time as Any for Resolutions, Right?

I didn't find that I made any resolutions this year, probably because I know I have trouble sticking to them. So I made a resolution to declutter yesterday and began today.
