As Seen On TV!!!

July 28th, 2018 - 11:11 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and As Seen On TV lovers…

Have you seen these on TV?


Well my AC went out on one of the hottest days in bassethoundtown.  Unfortunately, we were babysitting Romeo who does best in temperatures in the low 60s.  Well, that never happens at my house but regardless I rushed out to Walmart to see if these things work.


I got us each one because it says on the box, “personal cooling system”.


It comes with it’s own “mood” lighting…

Which I guess is a good thing because without AC – one is not in a very good “Mood”.


I also found these really cool sunglasses at Walmart!  That helped my mood as well…

Daisy Lynn quickly learned where to sit in front of her own personal cooling system…


Thank goodness I did not need a new AC.  The repairman came the next day and we were back in business.

The Arctic Airs all in all are not that great and I would suggest only in an emergency.  I did keep them because they got us through a few days.  You really have to be sitting right in front of them to feel anything and if your air is humid they don’t work.

That being said, Daisy Lynn did hog a fair amount of the personal cooling systems.  LOL

More loving cool air and personal hounds later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, Romeo (Chaps and Emma ATB on cool rainbow clouds…)



Ya seen one Yacht ya seen them all…The Lily Book Tour wraps up Charleston, SC Blog 3 of 3!

July 27th, 2018 - 8:08 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Lily Book Tour Lovers…Wow – I am really dragging this out aren’t I?  I had to laugh because when I started writing this I thought of the olden days when people would get home from a trip and invite friends and family over for a slide show of their adventures.  Half of the people would be sleeping and the other half were acting like they cared.  So funny!  So, whatever half you are in thanks for coming to our slide show.  hahaha  By the way I still do slide shows for friends and family;)

So, we are now wrapping up Charleston, SC.  We absolutely love this city.  There is so much to do and so much more to discover.

After we got home from the carriage ride we gussied up and drove down to Battery Park.  Keep in mind you could probably spend at least a few days just in the park and it is perfect for walking hounds!  I am standing in front of the Pink Palmer House that was bought for 6.5 million back in 2016.  We parked a few feet down the street and walked past all of the mansions.


This is what it looks like from the water view.  It is so pretty.  We had a perfect time and the weather was great.


This is where I wanted our carriage ride to go but it turned out better for us on foot.  We went at our own pace and wound up at white point gardens in battery park.


Everywhere you turned there was outstanding beauty.  We only had a day and a 1/2 and we needed about 5 days to do it right.  Still, we got in as much beauty as possible.

Right around the corner from where we parked is a section called RAINBOW ROW.  We had to see that.  My pictures did not turn out so, I borrowed one from the internet to show you just how cute this street is.


Then we did what you do in the later afternoon – you head off to the Mega Yacht Dock.


OMDOG!!!  So much fun.  There were lots of mega yachts and even more dashing young men polishing mega yachts.

This one came in from high seas due to weather – They were flying the New Zealand flag.


It was time to head on out – we had dinner reservations at Circa 1886.

Daisy was ready to turn around.


I was in agreement with her and said, “Ya seen one Yacht ya seen them all”… We were laughing so hard it hurt…

More loving laughing later…Cat, Grandma, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB in little rainbow cloud yachts…)

PS – I have to do a blog on Circa 1886 – People rant and rave about it but we thought it was awful.  Our advise – Skip it and don’t waste your money.






Hot To Trot – or should I say, Haute To Trot? hahaha

I actually cannot believe this took so long.  Great deal for such a cute item!!! LOL

This actually sold to a cocker spaniel!!!

More snoods later…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Hot To Trot Snood Lovers…


This snood was designed by me and exclusively sewn by our #bassethoundtown seamstress Susan Gabbard.

OMDAWG can you even believe the hot chili pepper fabric?  Hot to Trot for surez.  Susan turned me on to this tucked away fabric shop in Cincinnati.  The woman who owns it designs the fabric and has it made.  Howl cool is that?

Can you say waddle?  Can you say Dog Show?

Come on…

More loving Haute Couture for Hounds later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, Grandma, (Chaps and Emma ATB) never eating hot peppers!!!


Can the residents even believe it? Our Mayor, Daisy Lynn Rudert is 6!!!

Howllow Fellow Basset Hound and turning 6 lovers!!!  Wow, our Mayor is 6 and we really celebrated in style.

Here is her official birthday portrait…

Can you say, “bassetude”?


She rules the roost here in #bassethoundtown and we bow to her every demand.  Today she got a piece of extra crispy bacon in her breakfast bowl!


Then Romeo had to get in on the action and the bacon!


We had so much fun today and really all of this month.  We just got back from another Lily Book Tour and I have not even finished blogging about last summer’s tour.  Where does the time go?

I am going to slow down year 6 and make each moment count…


We will continue to make a wish every morning and not just on our birthdays!


Thank you fellow residents for coming on this journey with us.  We are so thankful to have such a great town.


May all of our wishes come true and we all have a safe and happy next trip around the sun.  6 years old – here we come!

More loving birthday wishes later…Love, Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB ready for our next trip around the sun!)
