Happy Birthday Maggie

Saying for the day:Properly trained, a man can be dog's best friend. ~Corey Ford

We are having a birthday party for Maggie today. She is one year old.
I have had a lot of dogs over the years but this is the first one with a birthday party. In fact I think this is the only one with a birthday. The others just sort of appeared. But Maggie has papers. She is registered. She has an official birth certificate. This is her real birthday.
The weather is cooperating the temperature has gone all the way up to 15 above zero. The house even feels warm again.
All my children and grandchildren will be here for the party. Maggie is very popular.
Pennie took here to he groomers yesterday and got her all prettied up. She is ready for the big day.
So, Happy Birthday Maggie.
Maybe now she will stop chewing up everything and act like an old dog.
But I doubt it.

News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is just a little strange. The people of Pigeon Falls have a problem. They are afraid to try to open the box that could end the siege of the trees. Two people tried and were knocked unconscious in the process, one from the Fly Inn and the Pastor of Last Lutheran Church. Both are alright today but people feel that if the Pastor wasn’t good enough who will be ? There is that nice old lady who has neber said an unkind thing in her life an d has been kind to everybody but she has a bad heart. If she isn’t the “ pure of heart one” the tree could kill her. All they have to go on is the driblet and the Monk chickened out before the end so they don’t know if there is a happy ending or not.
While they struggle with this problem Dr. Fortress has arranged for a helicopter to bring more food and essentials and to lower the food without landing ( helicopters are expensive).So there is no fear of starving at this time.
Homeland Security is sending somebody to look over the situation after Eino threatened to call CNN and tell them Homeland Security was failing again. Now if he could just find some way to blame this on an Arab he might get the US army to come and help. These could , of course, be terrorist trees sent by some fanatic.
Tommy UK has set himself to find somebody “pure of heart”. He has read the driblet so many times that he knows it by heart. But there doesn’t seem to be a clue there as the nature of the person who qualifies. So he is at the library reading philosophical and theological books. He is looking for an answer to what makes one “pure of heart”.

Today's Link-Nameless Life- You may want this watch if your a geek.
It was a great day. I spent the morning cleaning up my blog. I added a way to read the elf stories and took off one of the awards from last year I thought was already gone. I worked on my links but those changes won't show until Monday or late tomorrow. Then Pat and the boys came and Peter, Lori and the lids. WE went out to eat at Country Buffet. Then I played canasta with Betty as a partner against Lori and Pennie. We won one and lost one. Peter brought the DVD of the Forest Park Trojans winning the state championship. AS a former school board President it was a real joy to watch. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Happy Birthday to Maggie. Haimish and Alexander would sent their best wishes, but where Haimish is Anti~Social and Alexander has become a big chicken, I doubt they'd be good company.

A blessed Weekend is wished for you, Betty and your family and Maggie

Happy (late) birthday to Maggie!

I wish I could send you guys some of our weather. Today was gorgeous and sunny at 60-ish degrees.

I may be the only South Texan hoping for snow...
