Happy Tuesday and Much More

Happy Tuesday You might see a lot of this girl's pretty face ! It has been twelve whole years since a girl graced this phamily.  This love bug likes sleeping. She may be dreaming or thinking why did I leave the comforts of a heated swimming pool? HaHaHa! She is so cute.
Sandee do you think Maxine is not an environmentalist? HaHaHa!
So Brody doesn't have his motorcycle here but he was carrying these pom poms that belong to his sister Addy. Maxine made me think how much Brody loves Roger's big hog. So he has a miniature version of a motorcycle. He loves the sound of it. He is 100 percent pure B O Y !
Still thinking about Memorial Day and what it stands for. If you know me, you know I LOVE baseball. I could live and breathe it. Unfortunately the times today took away my beloved game. But I came across this quote Charlie Blackmon ,an outfielder for our Colorado Rockies shared in honor of Memorial Day yesterday.  "Those who have long enjoyed privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them. " Anytime someone says we have to many privileges in America a cold chill run down my spine. Arguing about our constitutional rights also runs my blood ice cold. Live without any of it for one day and please tell me how you feel then. I could repeat prior Memorial Days and remind myself and everyone how my mom's cousin lost her only son (USMC) to the Vietnam conflict. How my grandmother's cousin gave her only son to fight in WWII (USN) and he too, lost his life, as a submariner. He was near Pearl Harbor that fateful day. Please do not destroy and erase history. These men gave their lives so we may have ours today.  A friend (USA)who came back from three tours of Afghanistan remembers those he fought with every Memorial Day, that did not have the luxury of returning home. They gave their all for all of us. Please do not disrespect them with ignorance by erasing history.

Appropriate words for those who never made it home. 

You see my badge for Tinkerbell on my right side bar. She was a lost girl Memorial Day weekend 1996. The kids were outside, we were getting ready to barbeque. We heard a blood curdling scream! Thinking someone lost their arm we went outside in our backyard to see the kids with this tired and dirty little poodle. She was hungry and looked like she was traveling a long distance . We thought we would feed her and help her go home. Nope. That night she jumped on the hubby's side of the bed and remained with us until her untimely passing May 26, 2010. She became Rebekah's best friend. Going everywhere she went. We learned a woman must have abused her. She was afraid of women and also car rides. A while before her passing she ran away. Something in her made her bolt occasionally. We searched for two weeks before a woman said she came into her yard and she allowed her to stay. She had been sunburned badly from being outdoors and looked as though she fought with something wild!We took her to the vet and did all we could for her. We found out she had liver disease. My friend Barb suggested I blog about Tink. So November 1 2009 I started this journey. Missing Tink always, she was a character and had a neat personality. It is hard to imagine ten years have gone by since she left us. Waiting patiently at the Rainbow Bridge with all those fur babies who left before us. "Dogs speak, but only to those who know how to listen." Tinkerbell you would have loved Tuesday Show and Tails.

Aw, what a beautiful baby. They sure grow up fast don't they.

No Maxine isn't an environmentalist. She's funny though.

I'm sorry you've missed all your baseball this year.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Anne. Big hug. ♥

Tink was a real cutie and we love seeing the wee Princess. Brody sure looks happy with his discovery!

Your little girl is so, so pretty!

Those who never came home have my respect always.

A dog will break your heart every time, they can't help it.

That Brody seems to get cuter by the day (er, blog post)! Don't you love to gaze at new babe's faces and try to envision what they'll look like in a year … or 10.
Tink's story has touched my heart. Anyone who could abuse a little animal deserves a special spot in Hell. Thank you for giving her such a wonderful life!
