I Have The Best Daughter In The World!

I say that I have the best daughter in the world because she is always willing to help out an animal in need. Many times she goes above and beyond to help them.

Tonight we drove by an area where a house was torn down that used to have a lot of cats running around and sleeping on the porch. The house was torn down a few weeks ago and I stupidly thought that whoever had lived there must have made arrangements for the cats. Whether it was the person who used to live there or the person in charge of that person or whoever, they did not. We discovered the cats there this evening. She drove right to the store and bought cat food and a water bowl for them.

We went back and they all ran into the woods that surround the house. To our surprise we found that someone had been leaving food for them. Then we walked around behind a big tree into a nice little shaded spot and there was a lot of old empty food containers and cat food bags. It looked as if someone was trying to keep them fed and watered. We did wonder if a homeless person might have been staying there also. It was getting dark so we couldn’t really get a good look behind the hedge of trees and bushes.

Tomorrow I will call our No-Kill shelter and pray that they will for once have room for animal that I call about! At least we know they have enough food and some water.

So I have to say it again, I have the best daughter in the world! She is an animal hero.

Peacock Inspired Shirt From Goodwill Best Thrift Ever

I love it! I consider this to be my best Goodwill find ever. It is 100 % silk although I am sure if it’s Peta approved to wear silk anymore. Do they really make those little worms work like slaves and steal their silk? I didn’t go looking for silk, I just came upon it. I certainly wasn’t going to pass the shirt up I found it. So I am very sorry to the worms who made this shirt. You did a beautiful job. My photo does not do it proper justice.

Gunsmoke’s Dodge City – Melody Ranch

A good friend of mine has written a book about Gunsmoke’s Dodge City before the fire that destroyed the background used from 1955 to 1962. Please read more about his book on his website, The Alien Publishing Company.

Important Information About Dangerous Household Cleaners

Pretty much every common household cleaner that we use is on this list. So just in case someone did not see this article I wanted to put it out there again. I know that some artsy/crafty people have been using Citra-Solv Cleaner for their artwork so I thought you should see this information.

Silly Dog

This is Darla being a silly dog. She ran and jumped onto the bed covering herself halfway with the sheet and waited for me to come by and look at her. I was amazed by how long she sat there waiting for me. She isn’t usually that patient.  Then I was supposed to go in and attack her and wrestle with her.

Never Give Up

This story of a long lost dog will inspire you to never give up if your dog goes missing. A microchip and an animal hero were the keys to this beloved baby getting back home after six long years! And this story comes with an extra dose of happy to it! So remember, never, ever give up if your dog has been lost or possibly stolen.

One of the most important things you can do is too visit the pounds and shelters everyday. I know that when people just make a phone call that is not always sufficient enough. You have to go and look with your own eyes! And put out more flyers than you think are needed. Never give up!
