Getting ready

This time of year there are things we need to do to get ready for the colder months ahead. Gibbs figured that now he's got less fur to keep him warm he should try out a hat to see if it would fit.
Too bad I couldn't get a better picture of him. He wasn't quite sure it was his style or not.

Everybody loves a parade

Last Saturday was the fair parade. Some of you may remember that this goes right by my house so I just have to go sit in my front yard to watch it.

I dropped Gibbs off at the groomer and then went and picked up my son and Presley so they could come over and watch the parade. While we were waiting for it to start we watched a bunch of people come up the sidewalk and choose my front yard to park their chairs in. There were some other people coming over to watch too so I had bought some donuts for the all the kids. I took the donuts out so the kids could each pick one and went in the house to grab something else. When I looked out there was the kid who was with the group I didn't know helping himself to a donut. Well alrighty then.

On  to the parade. Just a few pictures

The marching bands are always a treat.

This band was led by their eagle mascot.

We discovered that Presley did not care for the clown

She did have her parade wave down pat though.

New man

No I haven't started dating. The new man is Gibbs. The old man was looking very scraggly

Saturday morning he went to the groomer

He no longer looks like a homeless dog.

The last time I took him to the groomer it cost me $25.00. This time it was $42.50. I don't know if the cost has gone up that much since the last time I took him or it was because he was so bad. Of course this is a different groomer than I went to before also.

Finally fixed

For several years now the door on the back of my house that goes into the basement has been seriously messed up. The storm door has sat crooked and then the winter before Wade passed away the handle on that door broke and he rigged something up temporarily so it could still be opened. This is what I have been dealing with.
Not only did it look hideous but it was rather embarrassing.

This is the redneck door handle I've dealt with.

On top of how bad it looked, last winter there was a lot of cold air coming in through that door. This year once the mortgage was paid off I knew I had to get this fixed. Finding someone was a real hassle but I did finally find someone. He told me he was really busy but would squeeze me in as soon as he could.

He finally came yesterday.
