"who me? mean?"

"who me? mean?", originally uploaded by Hotash.

This is an September shot of Marlee.

She has been having a mean time of things the past two weeks-maybe it's because I haven't been spending enough time with her? I don't know.

She attacked Rain last week and Cali this morning.

The worst part is that Marlee, for the first time ever, (she's never even offered before) attacked Big Kitty!!!

She didn't injure any of them, but man, it sounded and looked awful and I worry- I do not trust Marlee.

We remain frustrated together...

Float on

"A Mendocino County corrections deputy killed himself Wednesday afternoon, the department's second suicide in less than a year.

Deputy Eric Gore, 38, apparently shot himself at 1:25 p.m. Wednesday as three officers entered his Ukiah apartment to check on his well-being, said Ukiah Police Chief Chris Dewey."

hi lisa! - my other red-headed girlfriend
(we are on the same gnome line tonight)

so, i went for a visit last weekend with my bestest red-headed girlfriend (in the usa) and we had a blast.
nothing better than comfortable, true friends (& cold beer)

upon crawling into an open bed i had to find something to read. . .
in the kids room i found a book of gnomes.

the real story is that this very book was given to my daddy by my mommy way back in 1978. during one of my (many) moves over the years i was going to toss this. . .
my girlfriend saved it from the thoughtless tossing by me.
she was more than happy to return the book to me :0

i have to say that i have many, many fond memories of reading (mostly looking at the pictures) this story book when i was little. i have such happiness inside knowing that it was cared for by a loving friend during a time that i did not care.

thank you steph
♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥
i am grateful
to have a friend as dear as you
♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥

Bonanzle!!! with me & my daddy
