All my Grandchildren are Dogs

Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms of the world. You have probably made your
journey to the mecca of your childhood today. It is a good thing to honor
our parents. It doesn't seem to matter how old we are, if our moms are still
alive, they can reduce us to blithering thumb sucking snotty nose idiots with one
look. That is their job. It shall always be their job. Moms never take a vacation.
It is a 24-7 job for life. Let me elaborate.
I happen to live up the hill from my folks. I am past 20 plenty years of age. I have grown children, all in their twenties. They are all neurotic and dysfunctional I am sure. They survived my cooking and my logic which is only logical if you are me. Which means that I am a Mom of some standing. Hooray, I have done my job. Yet, my own Mom calls to remind me to lock and double bolt my doors and to let me know that it is raining. Like I said, 24-7.

I don't really like children. Which seems a dichotomy since I love my own.
I have one child that is married, the other two are significantly tied up. I have been told for years that I will enjoy having grands. I have seen the evidence of hard nosed gals with years of experience of child rearing. Can't wait to be free of kids, only to have a passle of grands to be disgusting over.
I don't have grands. I have grand dogs.
Let's see:
I have Annie, Misty, Elliot, Elisha and Sundance.
My quiver is full.
I can't have favorites can I? But I do. I love Annie, Misty and Sundance. I prefer Elliot and Elisha in the corner cage. They are too rambunctious for me. I love them, too, just prefer my dogs sedate and quiet.

The Humble Arts is having another RWB auction on ebay. For the remainder of the month, our artists will be having auctions that are red white and blue themed. This week we are also adding to the RWB theme by throwing in some fun Halloween things as well. Just go to ebay and type HARTS07 in your search browser. We'll leave the light on for you.

Here is one of my listings for the week:

Beautiful grand doggies there! I was reminded recently of this saying, passed on from mom..."Be a blessing". As young kids, we would walk out the door... other words, don't do anything I wouldn't approve of..ha!

Thanks Ladies
I really need a good pic of my Sundance. He is a beauty too. And what a love!

One of your "grands" looks like our dog named Georgia. She's a Border collie/Australian shepherd mix and talk about rambunctious--in the early days here, her life wasn't complete unless she was jumping or chasing or herding something, anything, everything. But now that she's 11 years old, at least she's learned to go with the flow and that birds and cars and children can get along without her.
Have a great day!
