On yesterday’s walk with Chester along the Red River, I found a Catbird singing.  He was perched in a dead tree where I have managed to get a few other bird pictures this year.  The birds that sing in the trees with leaves are much to hard to find for pictures, so I appreciate it… Continue reading Catbird

White-tailed Deer

As I mentioned yesterday, Chester and I found a couple of White-tailed Deer at Birds Hill Park.  I was driving past the parking lot for a trail named White-tail Deer Trail and I glanced in (as I always do), but this time I saw 2 deer on the trail. I was already past it by… Continue reading White-tailed Deer


After the scare Chester gave us in early December, it looks like he is responding to the increased meds and we hopefully have the seizures under control now.  It has only been 12 days since his last seizures, so we’re not out of the woods yet, but I am feeling much more confidant  now that… Continue reading Chester

New Year’s Resolutions

If you make New Year’s Resolutions – now is the time to decide what you are going to change or improve in 2012. Getting fit and losing weight  are the 2 most common ones that I see at work.  Stopping smoking is another common one.  Learning to control your temper is a good one for… Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions

Post a Day 2011

Back to Normal (whatever that is)

OK – Christmas is over, the madness of Boxing Day is over and today it is time to go back to work.  We still have New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day ahead of us, but those days don’t normally cause to much of a difference in my life (other than I get a day… Continue reading Back to Normal (whatever that is)


Christmas is over for another year.  Actually, I ate more than enough to last me for a year – but amazingly enough I woke up hungry this morning. Chester  has now gone a full 7 days since his last seizure.  I know we’re not out of the woods yet with just 7 days since his… Continue reading Random

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas I hope you have a day full of family and friends and lots of food.  🙂 Once the turkey starts cooking here and I can smell it, I know how great all the food will be.  I am one who can never get tired of turkey dinners. The temperature here is amazing for… Continue reading Merry Christmas

Bath Day

When you have a dog who hates baths – bath day is just one of the evils of life.  🙂  Chester hates baths. A few years ago, I purchased a dog bath from Costco.  You can see it in this blog from 2008 when I first got it.  It is a wonderful bath – gets… Continue reading Bath Day
