May 26 – June 01, 2014
Pathetic week for pictures. I don’t even know what was going on, and why I didn’t take that many 🙁
This is my FIL’s dog, Suzie. Pooper. Suzie Q. Adorable.
I’m attached to this dog. She’s getting up there in age. She’s a couple of years older than Ethan, in human years, so it’s unsurprising that we’re counting down our time with her.
I love this dog. I could love on her all day long. She was struggling a bit and I kept her company on the walk. I think she appreciated it. Every time I’d rub her and encourage her, she’d trot a little more, get a little more speed. Some pep in her step, so to speak. She’s not seeing too well, and she’s not hearing that great, but she can feel the love in the pets.
This is my FIL’s dog, Suzie. She seriously is the sweetest dog. About a month ago, her best friend, Molly, was put to sleep (mostly blind, mostly deaf, all for her). So Suzie is now officially a very lonely dog. She used to be super quiet, as Molly was the alpha between the two. We went to Josh’s dad’s yesterday, and she was a whining and shaking and making all sorts of noises. It actually made me smile a little, because its Suzie coming out of her shell, and letting people know what she wants and needs. I think she was also happy to see Madi, her other bestest friend.
Yesterday, we went to Holton. Josh’s dad wanted Josh’s help checking out the Silverado‘s brakes. BTW: its definitely the calipers. I remember that burning metal smell from the Jimmy when its calipers locked up. Considering Josh was pretty sure the calipers haven’t ever been changed, as far as he knows (and I think his dad confirmed that, minus a brake job, several years ago), that’s a long-lasting caliper 😛 It also needs a new/replacement power steering pump. That’s not too bad 😉 The Sonoma needed one too, 😆
We actually spent most of the day outside. Yes, even me! Crazy right? Well, it didn’t really get that hot, and Holton had a pretty steady breeze blowing up until it was about time for us to leave 🙂
Last night, Mark and Julie came over. Mark brought the laptop, so Julie was between us, and we were all comparing phones, 😆 Found out that the Samsung Captivate comes out THIS summer! I get to have a Samsung Android phone. Though it looks like they might not use my current charger connector though, 🙁 Oh well, I can send those to Mom and Dad, since Dad’s Blackjack and Rugged (for work) and Mom’s Blackjack (my old one) use the same connections.
Otherwise, not much is going on in this side of the world. Fireworks for Kids have started. Started yesterday morning, continued most of the day into the night, and started at 7am, and didn’t end until about half hour ago (it’s 3:15pm right now). The parking lot looks like a bomb went off because these kids aren’t cleaning up after themselves either. The biggest kicker: none of them are past the age of 11, and are doing this with absolutely no adult supervision at all, unless you count the adults who look out their windows, or the maintenance guy they’re shooting them off in front of.
