  1. Forgive me because I am making you so much trables for the translation.

    I am not sure, but I think that this is the same I have.

    There you must copy/paste the link.


  2. Great meme, Patti.. I'm glad your Marlins won. My poor Astros are in LAST place now.. They are pitiful!!!

    I like your tree choice... Neat!!!!

    Have a wonderful day.

    Thanks. That was one of my Dad's favorite sayings and it really is true.

    I can't get that one on my blog, must be something to do with my template, and the ones I can get on are foolish for all the instructions are in English which defeats the purpose. I will keep trying.

    If it weren't for Washington, my Marlins would be in last place. I like that they play hard whether they win or lose. It is early. The Astros and Marlins may rise to the top yet. Gotta love them.

  4. I like this meme. But it's no fair blowing off the funniest thing question - you can tell us the second funniest, can't you?

  5. I'm with rest. Gotta hear the funniest.

    How is Mighty doing with therapy?

    Luckie and I had to visit the vet for refill on her rectal injections of Valium for seizures, or prevent them . I only get three and I use them when she seems to be acting "funny" which sometimes is normal...

    She had a spell Tues a.m. and I used my last injection. She then went out and grazed on grass. Guess she had upset stomach, not seizures...

    I know it is a cop out. But when ever anyone mentions funniest moment, that comes immediately to mind and I can think of nothing else while that is floating around in my head. Maybe I will leave it in my will.

  7. Nitwit,
    Know what you are going thru with siezures. Mighty has them but they are infrequent so I don't medicate. He gets big eyed and gets as close to me as he can when they come on. I wrap him in a towel for he drools a lot and just hold him close. He doesn't lose concsiousness but gets rigid and pants. I know he is frightened and am just grateful they don't happen often.
    Luckie is really lucky she found you.
