Waiting for Spring

This is our Saturday market it opens the first Saturday in April and I can't wait. This has been a very long winter and it's not over yet.
Looking at these picture makes me feel like we will make it to see the sun and flowers in the near future.

Rescuers who have saved hundreds of dogs from stinking, filth-choked puppy mills over the past few days have made an eye-popping discovery - most of the animals are pregnant and due to give birth to roughly 1,500 puppies.
I am so mad or sad or both over 600 little puppies were found just south of me . You can see the story on KOMONews .com in Seattle Wa. How can people do that?

My Sister Dorothy

This is my sister she is a year and a half younger then I am and she has breast cancer.
She is taking oral chemo now but her last one was a newer radical one now she has chemo induced nuropathy in her hands and feet and she can't hold on to things like the phone or a fork.When she walks she said it feels like she has on big foam slippers.They tell her it will go away,but it has been almost a year since her last treatment an it hasn't gotten any better.
Her son lives with her and helps her with things she can't do. He is really good to her.
They have two furry friends Aurther is a standard poodle and Cammie is a sweet little toy poodle they are good company.
Please say a prayer for her.

Happy Birthday John

I told myself when I started this blog I would try to write every day. Well things happen my mom was here for a week and a half. I took her home today her room is nice and dry now.
Tomorrow is my eldest sons Birthday. The picture is when we lived in North Carolina he was 18mo old he is sitting on a load of "bacca" that is ready to go in the drying barn.
It is Hard to believe he is going to be 54 they grow up so fast(LOL).

Sunshine maybe tomorrow

Coming out of Fred Meyers today there was a glimpse of what I think was the sun it has been so long since I have seen it I was not sure. The weather man said we are going to have some rays over the next few days. I hope so we have been in the dark since before Christmas.
I am looking forward to spring.
