Um...no thanks, I'll pass on these...
Ain't that the truth!
Lick the glass? I'll try not to!
The following two drawings were in the Student Art Exhibition. They were done by a young lady in a local high school. I thought they both incredible. Oh, to have talent like that!
Where's the beef? Right here, baby!
My friend raises and shows bunnies. What sweet balls of fluff!

We had about 60 Golden Retrievers in attendance with their people, and everyone seemed to have a blast. This gathering was in preparation for a surf competition a bunch of us are competing in next weekend. Get this, the dogs, not the people, will be surfing. Our team is called the Golden SurFURS...pretty catchy, don't you think?
Here are a couple of pictures from our get together.

These are pretty scenes from the lake at 6:30am this morning.
I like seeing things like this....
I don't like seeing things like this!

Thursday was my Mom's 70th birthday. We told her we'd take her where ever she wanted to go. She wanted to go to a casino. Seriously. Cha-ching! Momma wanted to play the slots, baby! We went to a local Indian casino called Valley View. (Yes, surprisingly there actually IS a view of the valley from the casino.) After a delightful buffet of all you can eat goodies, which included Maine Lobster, and crab legs - more melted butter please! -we hit the nickle slots and had a blast. I bet you didn't know I was such a High Roller, eh? We all wound up coming out of the evening a little ahead of the games, that is all of us EXCEPT the birthday girl. She made a nice little "contribution" to the casino in the form of about $140 worth of nickels....oh well, we can't all be winners. Love ya Mom!
Today, my youngest, graduated from Middle School. That's it...I officially (for real this time) feel old. All those other times I said I felt old, I was just joshing....this time, I really, really do feel old. (That is, until something comes up that makes me feel even OLDER than I do today.) Anyway....my "baby" is officially a freshman. The hearts of the boys at her high school may never be safe again. That's my girl!

At last it was my turn to cool off and enjoy the pool, which I did, dog free, for a change.
You can see they weren't too happy with me. Kona looks forlorn...Jack thinks that if he just pushes the tennis ball in, he'll have an excuse to get back in the water...and Jill is contemplating just going ahead and diving in. Harley is just outside of the frame, asleep, having given up the quest for more swim time. Poor, sad, pathetic pups...
I'm one of the lucky ones out there my age that still has my father with me. I know that I am very, very fortunate. My father has had a multitude of health problems in the last couple of decades, everything from a quintuple bi-pass to diabetes, thyroid problems, blood pressure problems, and a tumor on the base of his brain, just to name a few. But let me tell you, my Pops is a trouper. Rarely a complaint, always, ALWAYS a sense of humor, and the kindest heart a person could ever hope for. I am one very lucky girl indeed. Happy Father's Day Pops, I love you!

Any who....I wanted to share a couple of pictures real quick from my recent jaunt down to Fort Worth, Texas (can everyone give me a quick "Yee Haw!") Fort Worth is a fun place with lots to see and do. Of course my main objective was to visit with my brother's family, and watch my nephew graduate high school. But while we were there we did make it over for a quick visit to the World Famous (at least I think it's world famous....) Fort Worth Stock Yards.
Now, them are some horns!
Hey, good lookin....
