Park Day

It seems as everybody is celebrating spring by going to the park for “Park Day”   For one, I went to my back yard Scottie Park.   Take a little tour with me. There’s always something to chase-Kaci come back here and leave that lizard alone   We have all kinds of Scottie stuff decorating the park […]

Kaci-the great hunter

Kaci loves to chase anything. I remember when I thought I could get a bird (ah, puppyhood). One of the things Kaci chases is lizards. She’s never gotten one that I know of. I got one, bit off the tail and the lizard ran away. I think the tail grows back. It’s a hoot to […]

There was a card with a beautiful picture of Stuart Kyla was almost crying when she read it. “Oh, thank you for thinking of […]
