Alex and Elsa

Good morning,

Our grandson, Alex, picked Elsa up and I just started snapping the camera...
Elsa liked the new vantage point.
That's Penny in front of Alex.

Elsa likes being held.  She soaks up all the attention she can get.

Another Bread Day

Good morning,

It was another bread day here.  This time it was cheddar cheese bread. 

I decide what kind of bread to make when I look in the kitchen to see what's available to go into it.  We like any kind of cheese bread here. 

Yum!

Hanging Out with Mom and Dad

Good morning,

A sleeping dog is a good dog.  Elsa played hard one evening, then dropped on one of the dog beds in our sitting room.

We can hear her sleep, too.  She snores.

So cute!

Joint Venture Ribs

Good morning,

Kjell started these pork ribs (rolled and standing) on the smoker, but the rains came and drove him inside.

We brought the ribs in and I finished them in the oven.

So, these are Joint Venture Ribs and they were delicious!

Frog Dog

Good morning,

Having dogs is such a pleasure.  Each of our four is so very precious.

Our baby, Elsa, is still a "floppy puppy" and gets herself into such darling positions.  This frog position is one of her regulars. 

So cute!

I hope you're not overdosed on puppy pictures!

Tumble Visit

Good morning,

Our four pups were very excited when they realized Catherine had brought Tumble over to visit.
Tumble is our friend Erica's Brittany.  He came to visit us almost every weekday morning when he was a baby for socialization with other dogs and people while his Mom was at work.  It was much more fun than staying at home.
That's Tumble in the foreground.  He's all grown up now and is showing in Conformation.  He is well on his way to being a champion.  We are as proud of him as his Mommy is.

The pups enjoyed having a play day together.

Lunch with Good Friends

Good morning,

We enjoyed another lunch the day after having lunch with Catherine and her staff.  This time the cast of characters were, from left:  me, Lynne Glandorf, Kjell, Teresa Olsen, Gary Glandorf, and Tor Olsen.  These are friends from our years at sea and we always enjoy getting together again. 
We had lunch on the "North Coast of Kentucky" at the Greyhound Tavern. 

This was such a fun day!

Let's do it again soon!
