Come with me on our anniversary date.  We went down to St. Simons Island.  It was very relaxing.  Not too hot, the breeze was very nice.  The husband did some reading while took pictures and watched people.  I even caught one gentleman sitting on an interesting looking tree.  I wanted a picture of the tree and he was sitting there.  🙂

My husband and I sat for a while watching people on the pier fishing, without much luck.    It was a nice relaxing date.  We need more evenings like this.  Just to relax and be together and remember each other.

Gauge loves to play with a ball. As long as it is round, or sort of round, it is a ball to him. My potatoes, my onions, tennis balls, the neighborhood golf balls, pine cones…I am telling you, anything sort of round is a ball to him. He loves it! And plays for hours!

I grew up with small dogs, usually Pekingese. The rest of my family has Chihuahuas, but when I married my husband we decided that we would get a larger dog. Our first dog is Roscoe. Not pictured in these images. He is designer, okay, mutt. Sharpei-Labrador. He is amazing smart. When he was young and we were both working, we could not stand him being lonely so we bought his pal Enos, definitely mutt. Labrador and something else, my vet calls him a dachshund on steroids. You will see their pictures soon. Daisy Mae and Gauge are our papered English Blockhead Labradors. They are amazing and lovable. Big teddy bears! Dealing with infertility, they truly are my babies.

 

 

Do Not Even Think About Touching My Bone!

Let me introduce you to Heidi. Heidi belongs to my parents. She is my younger sister. 🙂 I sure do love her like one. We had a fun photo shoot today.

The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree 6-5-1The Giving Tree

I hope to get a better picture of our climbing tree, this makes it look short. (I added the larger picture today.)  I lovingly think of it as “The Giving Tree” as Shel Silvertein talked about in his children’s book.  Mimosa’s typically only live about 17 years.  Our mimosa has lived 45 + years.

I know that is because the love we give it, and it gives in return.  Many an adventure have been lived out in this tree.  It was a boat, a castle, a home, a school bus, a school, a space ship, and anything a child’s mind could imagine.  His sturdy limbs once even saved us from a neighborhood dog attack.  As Granny yelled, “run to the climbing tree” when a Doberman jumped the fence.

Several generations have climbed it.  When I was 19 and broke up with my first very serious marriage talking boyfriend, I went and climbed this tree and cried.  When I moved back home after being gone for three years, one of the first things I did was climb the tree.   I could not get as high as I once could, but I could still climb it.  He has a disease now; but he still blooms year after year.  When the grandchildren come, they still visit him.  I love this tree!
