Looks like someone else gained some weight over the holidays. I think I know that feeling.

Who you calling chubby?

Not At All Wordless Wednesday~ January 2, 2019

2019. Just the sound of it sounds promising, doesn’t it? But it’s not at all natural to type  just yet, let alone say and it will probably take a couple of week’s of practice before I scribble over 2018 on checks in favor of adding the correct year.

Happy New Year, Blogville. We at the Ranch hope you survived the ‘howlidays’ and they were full of joy. Between all the special food, drinks, and good cheer with friends and family, you just might want to hold off looking for that bathroom scale just yet (you may remember I thought of hiding mine here as a viable strategy for that fudge holiday weight gain).

Enter the period of time where making resolutions is the blueprint we often begin the new year. Welcome, resolution month. I’m not big on making resolutions preferring setting goals with a specific plan, but I do try to become more conscious about healthy living and eating. How can you not? With the arrival of bitter cold temps in the single digits with windchill over the past few days, outside exercise has been limited but here’s a strategy that might help.

Snowmen humor

Have a wonderful first week of 2019. Your slate has been wiped clean to create a whole new direction where you can go. What’s your plan? And if you make New Year’s resolutions, do they work for you? Any tips to share? Here’s to a happy, healthy 2019!

Nearly Wordless Wednesday ~ December 19, 2018

Hard to believe it’s almost Christmas. The crazy frenetic pace may be getting to you so take a moment to enjoy a smile. I know exactly how that little guy felt just a month ago. The only thing missing is a mango margarita.

Monday Musings ~ December 3, 2018

Eep…is it really December?!?! It just doesn’t seem possible, does it? If you were out holiday shopping this weekend, you just might a bit like this. Then again, if you’re like me, you probably feel that way whenever you’re out and about. *Sigh*

Here’s wishing you a great week.

Monday Musings ~ November 5, 2018

The weekend is over and now we wait for the endless election to be over. Sam here. But first, a smile. I’m thinking this Twitter strategy should be used for all the incessant ads. If you have not yet voted, please do so. While every election is ‘impawtant,’ this one will set the direction our country will take over the next two years. For those who have voted early, humble poodle tail wags.

And now in the it’s-not-too-late-to-think-about-the-howlidays category, we note the following post from our avian pal, Kismet regarding the card exchange. We sent our email in accordance with the instructions because Mom likes to mark things off her to-do list. So right after you vote, email Kismet, ‘kay?

Remembering Madi

While we didn’t know Madi, we do know that she was beloved here in Blogville. Today as Sam and I are visiting patients at West Pines, we are participating in a remember Madi blog hop hosted by Raz and our fur-iends, Rosy and the Gang.

The loss of a beloved pet is always hard and we know she will be greatly missed by her friends and family. Had we known Madi, no doubt we would have had oodles of poodles fun following along her ‘pawsome’ adventures. But because we didn’t, alas we have no personal smiles to share per se, and offer some remembrance poppies from our garden instead with the hope her family finds comfort from tender memories.

Pirate Party Wednesday

We are joining the Speedy’s Annual Pirate Party event today. Sam isn’t  keen on getting dressed up as you can tell here, but he adores Speedy and is always willing to walk the plank for fur-iends.

So ahoy, mateys. Don’t be a scalawag today.

Avast Ye Mates…

Many of you have contacted me about the issue of your comments disappearing on our blog and some of you have indicated that some of my comments have been pillaged off to your spam folders. We’re working on it with the nice blokes at WordPress and hope you’ll be patient while they try to figure out why Akismet thinks I’m a bot. Shiver me timbers…I’m not even Russian. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!

Monday Musings ~ July 2, 2018

July already? Yikes…hard to fathom the year is half over. Where the heck did those first six months go?

After a mild weekend temperate wise, we’re back into sweltering status along with most people on the East Coast. My advice…take naps, lots of naps. I’ll be there as soon as I drink my coffee. Stay hydrated and enjoy your week.

Wordy Wednesday ~ June 20, 2018

It’s Wednesday again, so best to pour yourself a cup. You still have a couple of days till Friday. Till then, it’s ok to make room for the official start of summer.
