Hi everyone.

Yesterday turned out to be a productive day. I cleaned my house. I have not felt well in so long, it really really needed a good cleaning. I am not done, but it's 75% of the way there. It is hard to be the only one who does the cleaning (and I know I am not the only one who deals with this- even the married folks must feel the same way at times). But, I like my house to be presentable at all times, and with animals, it takes some perseverance in the face of weakness!

I got Lucy 2 a new friend yesterday. Headed out to Petco- it was MOBBED. Apparently there was a Rabies clinic going on. I saw so many Puggles- Lordy. How anyone could want a Puggle...

Anyway, Ricky 2 is a dark blue, I guess you could call him a blue jeans coloured boy. Lucy 2 immediately took to him, and within hours had herself squished against him. He is rather shell shocked still, but he will come around.

Today besides work, I have to get the oil changed in the car, and Danny needs his Rabies vax. He needs this so he will be set for the fair- all dogs must have this. As to getting ready for the fair- I have it down to a science. Drop the two crates in our area, cooler, and fan if necessary, and that's it. Not too much to do.

The Bull riding is back this year. Very cool. I love it. I especially love the cow boys in their jeans :)

I will work hard not to eat too much junk. That's hard, but I will try!

Danny will get loads of socialization, and Lucy will love people doting on her.

I never did get that lawn mowed, so maybe I will see if my nephew can do it for me while I am at the fair. I was going to do it yesterday, but the ground was too wet from all the rain we have had. Has not been a particularly "pretty" summer for my yard. The bugs are as bad as ever as well.

Well, I guess this is enough for my disjointed post.
