This summer has been far to rainy and cool for me.  Maybe Blanche enjoys it, but where is summer???!!  I guess the weather makes it easier for Blanche to enjoy hanging out on the porch, doing nothing as she is so fond of doing.

She did manage to oversee the packaging of a delivery to Pawtropolis.  Gotta make sure Oscar's label is perfectly placed on the box!

About town

My friend Lori owns a delightful clothing shop downtown Athens.  She has graciously agreed to put a couple of boxes of Oscar Bites on her counter and see if anyone would like to purchase some.  Never know about a clothing store, but can't hurt to check.  I have been selling pretty well at the market, even though this saturday will be devoted to Blanche and her photo shoot.  Miss October will be having her little spa day on wednesday and hopefully ready to perform on saturday morning.  Hope she is just as easy to photograph as Oscar was.  Of course he was very handsome.  She is one of those "pretty in her own way" little girls, but their personality usually shines through and I am sure hers will.

Cheese Chomps!

A big thanks to Pawtropolis and Athens Locally Grown for keeping me busy.  This week's most popular flavor...Cheese Chomps.  In honor of my wonderful pig Millie, I make them in festive "hog" shapes.  I think she would have approved!

More New Mexico....

Always great to see old friends!

What a view!!!  Can't wait until next time!

New Mexico.....

New Mexico....

Kinda cool up near the top of mountain.

New Mexico 2013

I just love going to visit my good friend Betsy.  She lives with her husband Mark and their dog Morton in Dixon, NM....a really cool place. I have been lucky to visit them a few times over the years and I find something new and different every time....doesn't hurt that she is a great tour guide!  This past time was the first trip that the OB box joined me and believe it or not, I left Morton's treats at home!

One of the first stops....their gallery!  I think the OB box would be a delightful addition to the exquisite works of art that are offered there.

We tried to get a few pics when we toured Georgia O'Keeffe's house, but not anything allowed...not even purses.  So I got a few shots enjoying some hot springs later in the day.

Spaniel update

They are back and better than ever..haha.  Max is fairly deaf and can't see very well and Mia is not a happy camper during a thunderstorm.  They are here to stay so I may as well embrace them!!

Roanoke, VA

Trying to catch up with the Box.  I just returned from a visit to Dixon, NM...I like to think I am an honorary New Mexican..for at least one week of the year!  Anyway, my fab friend of many years, Betsy, lives there and this visit the OB Box got to go.

Before that, a couple of months ago we went to to Roanoke for Rich's graduation gathering.  I had never been and I have to say, it was quite enjoyable.  I got to meet his family, and celebrate a huge accomplishment in his life.  We were only there a couple of days, but had a great time.

We even snapped a pic in T Jefferson's bedroom!

San Fran

Our excursion to CA last October started in Venice Beach and included a trip up the coast to San Francisco...I love the view from one of the best parks I have been to!
