It's his 3rd Anniversary!

This is our dog, Murphy.....

About three years ago (after losing our dog of 13 years) we went here looking for a dog to foster to help fill a sad space in our family. We took Murphy home with us as a project dog and were to work with him and get him ready to be adoptable. After just a few weeks, we decided that there was NO WAY that we would let him go and it has been the best decision ever!

He is a 3 1/2 year old Tri-Color Australian Shepherd and smart as a whip!!

Happy Anniversary Mr. Murphy! You have been the best son and brother, ever.

OUCH!!! My head hurts!!

Too much studying!!

I am on the chapter about muscles and my poor brain (what is left of it) can't take anymore!
I decided to play a little hooky from "online school" and come over here for some fun.

I got my online newsletter from the quiliting guild that I belong to (Delta Quilters). They are going to make some quilts and give them to Veterans. They are calling them "Quilts of Valor" and the goal is to wrap as many war veterans in quilts as we can. We are to make various star blocks in the colors of red, white and blue. Each block is supposed to be 12 inches. The woman putting this together told us to go to this website to pick the one that we want and they will supply the fabrics. Have you seen this website before? Just about every block that you can think of and AWESOME directions too! I am giving consideration to the one called "Rising Star."

Sorry no pics husband is the techie in the house and I need him to download my pics. Should be this weekend.

So until then, have a GREAT day and thanks so much for stopping by!!
