Thanks for the advice about therapy reading dogs. I didn't know about that. He's just 29 months old, but he loves our Westie. In fact, he loves our dog more than the dog loves him back, I think. Buster is annoyed with our son's new ability to disturb his sleep. : )

Hi Jim...Nice to meet you. I'm a retired cop. Retired as a lieutenant, so I've had many conversations with attorneys. All pretty darn nice conversations too. Have a great day...Oh, how did you do on the test? :)

Love that red/white/blue golf cart there Jim!! Some good looking gals in there and a nice looking dog too.

No, I don't know anything about that Southern Heights church. I tried the web site once and it was gone. I guess they had one and let it go and never took that part off their sign!!

Dear Jim,
you are encouraging with a gentle smile.
Liked your surprises.
Guess they remember Mr. D over at Isle of White. The consert arre stilll reunnning on TV..for good and worse.
We'll be in London from Sept. 9th till 14th. (Tickets are bought, so now the argy germs better be gone. Serina has got a new streptococcus attack, but she's tough and will not give in. Thank you for asking and praying.
God bless you both at home and on your extended vacation.

I'm confused...why are you over here and not at your regular blog place? I thought you went away for awhile. Glad I found you...maybe if I read instructions. Duh.

Poor Adi the prop dog ;) So exactly what organization would make such a large "drop" sign?

nice pics. i especially like the first one. the way you have shadowed the person on the right draws the eye to the left...very cool.

I can't find the bone yard Jim........

 
At Wednesday, August 29, 2007 10:53:00 PM, Blogger Mrs. Mac said...

I rechecked the google search and should have typed "something's eating my roses" ... instead of "something IS eating my roses" one little goof up and you get on my case ... sorry.... just kidding .... keep me on the straight and narrow ... true to my word ...

Rachel, don't worry, you aren't in the Bone Yard. To find it, look on my other blog, http://jimmiehov.blogspot.com/

Right under Videos, Poems, and Music. You will have to highlight to see most of them.

Awww Jim I haven't been reading anyones blog. Just been so crazy busy here. I have to get up at 6am to get Sam to his new school and then just picking everyone up leaves me not much time.

I don't want to be in the bone yard so I am going to make an effort to read.

I loved your pictures especially beautiful Adi.

I hope you enjoy Scotland and the Ilse of Man. Very beautiful place. Shout a hello to the Brits for me.

Take care Jim and hugs xxx

P.S. Are you going to Blogstock 08?

Hi Jim!
Thanks for not giving up on me all this time.
It has been one busy month but I think that I will be getting back on track in the next little while..
I might even be able to get caught up with BP's story.
What was Adi doing at Mrs. Mac's?
Don't you dare deny it either Jim because I saw her there cooling herself in front of a big fan with her ears just a flying!
I left a couple of threats for you in my comment there too!
Well I better mosey on now.
I am trying to find the Curious Servant.
Somehow I have mislaid his new blog and I am wondering how he is doing..
Take care and give Mrs. Jim a hug from me..Love Terry

Thanks for alerting me to the wrong date on my blog. I have fixed it,, and don't blame Blogger this time.

You are welcome, everyone! Those who complimented, those who asked, and those who thanked. You know who you are.

The first two pictures were taken in Italy.
First one was at Castellamare, Sicily.

The second was down the hill from Taormina, Sicily.

The Adi by the Bag Drop picture is from our subdivision, while Adi and were walking. It is the place to drop off yoiur golf clubs if you want to rent a cart from the pro-shop.

Bag Drop reminds me of the signs at our Hickville Airport that say Bag Claim. When my parents arrived once, my dad saw the sign and said, "I'm here to pick up my wife."
