All my g-babies are in school except 2 yr old , Buddy, Bubby or Bubba dub (some of his nick names), and 3 yr old Emmie Sue Sue. Yes those are nick names (they are silly but I give silly names to all my grand kids). I have these 2 four days a week and pick up 3-4 other g-babies from school those days. I still have my hands full but I am just beginning to feel I have a little breathing room!
You may have noticed that Family Home and Life has disappeared; well it is still there! I didn't check my blogs email for a few months, my domain name was not renewed because credit card on file was expired. They want a whole lot of money to renew so I'm not going to. I attempted to renew with a blogspot address but won't let me use my domain name Family Home and Life. It is now found at https://familylifeandhome.blogspot.com/. That's Family Life and Home. Also doesn't show up on search engines, but you can paste address into title bar and it works....I hope ;) I just couldn't let it go; too many hours and memories there! My banner is still the same, hope that's not too confusing and I hope I can work it out one day. Stop over and say hello so I know you can still find it ok? Thanks!
So I want to tell you a dog story and I will post some pics of the kids while I tell it ok?
Years ago, we had 3 dogs, a large Brittany Spaniel, a medium size mutt, and a Chihuahua. They had run of the house and our huge fenced back yard. One of their favorite past times would be to stand at the fence that faced the road in front of our house and watch for people, cars or other dogs going by so they could bark and do other dog things.
The mailman most insulted our Chihuahua by brazenly walking up to our house to place mail in our box. Of course lots of barking ensued. The 2 bigger dogs soon learned the mailman meant no harm and barely paid any attention to him but that Chihuahua just couldn't let it go. She realized if she wanted the other 2 dogs to bark with her she really had to exaggerate the danger of that mailman. She would run to the fence fast as she could then run back and forth from the other dogs to the fence barking with all she had to get them to help her.
Then she found that if she timed it just right she could get the big Brittany Spaniel to run to the fence along side her, and if she barked crazy and loud enough the Brittany would jump the fence and go after the mailman! The Brittany would soon lose interest though with out the Chihuahua by his side egging him on.
Of course it was enough to scare the mailman, the result the Chihuahua was looking for. And there she would be, on the safe side of the fence, quiet and still now, since she had the 2 other big dogs doing the dirty work for her. She would quietly walk back to the house her business finished, and the Brittany would jump back over the low fence while getting yelled at by the mailman and me.
Sometimes I meet people just like that Chihuahua, in fact I have one in my life right now I'm dealing with. The trick is to remember when ever Chihuahua's start barking, be quiet and don't bark along with them! And for sure don't run with them toward the focus of their wrath. Hmmm. Know anyone like my Chihuahua? I bet you do!
