Most dogs as you know don’t like baths. Louie now he will get in the shower if you make him but he’d prefer to be dirty. The other day I was going to take a bath and he was laying on his lion like he does. He has had this lion since he was 6 weeks old. It's like his moma, it's a big lion too. I said Louie you want to take a bath. He jumped and looked at me turning his head to the side. So I said come on let’s take a bath. He ran to the bedroom and waited on me. I went in the bathroom and kept telling him let's take a bath. He stood at the door looking at me. I started the water and you’ve never seen a dog run so fast. He was gone before I could turn around. I was laughing so hard. I went to look for him and there he was on top of Dale and looking at me like I was a crazy women. I don't think you could have pried him off of there. Dogs are a lot of trouble but they are so much fun.

I don't have my pictures yet but when I get them I'll post them. We left Friday morning at 8:30 am. We had 6 cars on Friday. It was a nice trip up nothing went wrong. When you travel with old cars that's a great thing. We stopped in Seminole and then in Tatum. Lunch was in Roswell at Farley's. I have to say Roswell is an interesting place with all the Alien's around town. After lunch it was on to Ruidoso. We stopped at a road side Fruit Stand and got some really good jelly. We finally got to the hotel about 2:30 NM time. It was nice about 60 degrees and NO WIND! All of us went to eat which it ended up there were 28 of us. That was some crowd, one of the biggest we'd ever had up there. Saturday morning we all got up and headed to Cloud Croft for the Great Pumpkin Race. We shopped and rolled pumpkins down the hill. And yes I rolled one too. It was so much fun. I can't wait to get all the pictures. This time I didn't take them the guys did. So I got a break and just had fun. Saturday night we all walked across the street to Mountain Annie's, none of us had a clue what were in for but it was wonderful. We had a meal and then George Staerkel and his wife and a guitar player played for us for 2 hours. They were fantastic. George is the one that originally sang When the Lion Sleeps Tonight and he was awesome. He played 18 different instruments. We're tyring to get them to come here in May for a big car club Founders Tour. Sunday we all got up and headed home. It's fun to go but great to get home to my doggies.

Okay of course everyone knows about Lilly and this last weekend they posted some of the cutest pictures of her. I know I'm the Grammie so I have to think that.
After this weekend I hope to have some really pretty mountain pictures to post. And a lot to tell about our trip. We want to take the Mustang since the Chevelle is sick. Always something these days with my cars. The Chevelle needs different tires that don't make you feel like your in a big viberator, plus we found out the headers are on the starter. I guess that's why the starter gets hot and wont work. Of course we thought this problem was fixed until we drove it to Andrews with the new tires on it. That's when we knew we'd made a mistake with the tires. It was like holding on to the steering wheel and I mean holding on. So the headers are coming off for regular pipes and new tires or on order. It's only money. The Mustang is in the shop getting it's fender repaired after I hit the dang pole at work. Head up butt moment on that one.

Had a great time in Dallas last weekend. We went to a festival and the biggest Pumpkin Patch I've ever seen. There were 20,000 pumpkins and a house made of pumpkins. Lilly has grown so much over the last 3 months. She crawls fast now, has a new tooth and another one on the way and loves her mom. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Okay I've come to conclusion today that I have some kind of bad karma on me. First The mustang gets hit in the parking lot by a big truck. Then recently I got rear ended in the Mustang. Then today backing out of a spot here at work I hit the dang stupid pole. Before that it was in the shop for a battery problem not once but twice. And the Chevelle got hit in the last 3 months but is now at home fixed, some other car hit it while we were having the AC fixed. Luckily for me this last time is the only time that was actually my fault. Yes I did go home and cry when I finally made myself look it. It's already been to Rogers Ford for an estimate of $850. So I think I need some good Karma to come my way.......

Okay it's been a while but here I am again. This last week and weekend were very busy. First I got sick sinus again. It's just my time of year to get it. Stupid Grass and Weeds. Then it was time for our Car Club to have their Grand Ole Tour. SO we had to get 75 books together for all the people that came. And yes I had to do it on my sick day. But we got it done. Thursday we went to Odessa and greeted everyone and took lots of pictures of some really great cars, 1930's on up. We had a ice cream and hamburger evening Thursday. Then Friday it was tour time. We took the Chevelle and led about 10 Model A and Model T's from Odessa to the Petroluem Museum in Midland. We could only drive 45 mph with them. The Chevelle really wanted to go faster but we had to led all the little cars. It was like a moma goose leading her chicks to the water. After the Museum we went through down town which was kind of scary with them to Sam's house for lunch. Everyone was so impressed with his house. I have to say it's something. Definitely a guys dream place. Then it was back to Odessa. That evening we had a Style show and dinner at the hotel. The style show had about 10 or more people in it dressed in old time dresses and outfits. It was something. The dresses the ladies had on were just beautiful. Finally it was time to go home I was tired. Then Saturday up and at em again. Back to the hotel for a Ladies tea. We had Greenie the clown come and speak an she was great. She was funny and serious and just so much fun. Who'd of thought we'd all love a clown, but we did. Then it was off to the mall for our car show. There were about 50 or more cars there. There were car games and just lots of fun. Andrea was here so she and I went to the mall for some serious girl shopping. To bad my feet started hurting so bad. Then that evening it was back to the Hotel for the final dinner. We had 2 singers come sing Elvis and Roy Orbison. I know different but they really did great, especially Roy that guy was something.
We had several raffles at the dinner and Andrea wanted this huge duck. She didn't win it and was so disappointed, but the guy that did win called us back and gave it to her, you talk about excited, I've never seen her jump up and down like that. So now Ducky is at San Angelo with her. If she'll ever send me a picture you can see how hug this duck is.
Finally it was time to go home. I think Sunday I just lazied around. What a busy few days........
