a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Tuesday Morning...

and, again, I am awake early. I can not blame this on the full moon. I blame it on my mind, it wakes and won't stop thinking and sleep goes out the window.  You would expect someone that thinks so much to accomplish a lot...not the case.

There is a taste of fall in the air, and I am not ready.  The summer was too blasted hot to even allow me  to pretend I enjoyed summer. 

I had a gentleman offer me a white, deaf Boxer yesterday for free, full of puppies to come, boxer puppies. He did not mention the deafness but when I asked, knowing this is common in white boxers, he admitted it. You would have been proud of me, knowing my weakness for anything canine, I said no.  It was good, he did not have her with him, I would have caved instantly.

Another missed football game last night...in Yellville.  The game began before I left work. Papa was there for support.   Another win, a big win and yet Andrew is disappointed with no touch downs.  He did have a two point conversion, a forty yard gain in one play, an interception and lots of tackles.  I try to tell him, each person in an integral part of the team, and everything that is done, adds to the success of the whole.  Sometimes, this is a hard concept for adults, much less a fourteen year old.

My followers are growing and that is a delight! Thank you.

I am proud of you even though the boxer is my favorite dog. But, that would be difficult taking care of dog AND puppies.

I didn't know deafness was common in boxers, so I wouldn't have asked and may have ended up taking in a deaf dog. Thanks for popping into my blog and commenting. Much appreciated. I'll be back, which may be a scary thought, as I hit the follow option here. ;)

Lord, I bet that was a "No" you choked on! Congrats.

You need to tell this 14 year old that anyone can score a touch down, then ask him if they would have scored had he not done..... You fill it in...Sorry use to coach.

I love that photo by the way :D

Like your top photo...is that a dandelion?

Pat said...

Wow. I am proud of you for saying "no", although it would have been even HARDER if he had the dogs with him. I love that photo!

Congrats on the win!

Good for you Mom to resist.. We are afraid our Mom would have said another deaf dog what is the problem?
We are so proud of the kid.. Sorry you didn't get there to see it.. You need to have Dad tape it!!!

I tend to get less done when I spend half the night thinking.
Congratulations to Andrew! It is a hard concept for anyone.

And yes, congratulations on saying no to the deaf dog. *hugs* ♥
