FINALLY!!!!! I got a picture of Emma kissing Chaps!

September 26th, 2008 - 12:12 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and kissing hound lovers: OMfreakingG! I have been trying and trying to get a picture of Emma kissing Chaps and it has just been totally elusive. Someone is always in motion and the picture comes out looking like blurry fur. May I present: THE KISS, slurp!

It kind of looks like a nudge, but it isn’t. It’s a real kiss. OK, maybe I missed it again. I will keep trying. Bummer.

She does it all the time, so it should not be that hard!

More kissing later…..Cat, Chaps and the kissing Emmers!

Emma Rudert, BHT – Employee of the week!

September 26th, 2008 - 11:11 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and Employee of the Week Lovers! Yes, our Emma is employee of the week. She has spent her week helping others and bringing joy to all around her.

This honor holds many perks. She gets the best parking spot on the couch. She is first in the dinner line. She gets to have her picture as the screen saver, and she is also awarded belly rubs first.

I will have an Emma health update later today. There is no real change. I have a few IOI (Items of Interest)!

More EOTWs later! Cat, Chaps and Emma

I heard this song on the way home from the jewelry store yesterday and just got addicted to it again.
Man O Man those were the days!

Then I got home and started singing it to the kids. Good thing the windows were not open! LOL
