I am a sucker for lost dog stories! A friend posted about a dog her friend brought home from a hunting trip. The dog kept showing up at their camp sight every night when they were hunting in Nebraska. The guy, Mark, couldn’t just drive away and leave her there so he brought her back to North Iowa although he already has three golden retrievers and lives in a small town with a small fenced yard. The dog is a deerhound, staghound, Irish wolfhound – something very big and very loving. Who knows? Here she is! Meet Blanche!
Mark brought her to the farm today and I believe it will work out. Telly and Hazel are fine with her, she cares nothing about the cats or chickens, won’t go into the barn, but also won’t come into the house. I have put a dog bed outside for her and it’s breaking my heart to leave her outside because it’s getting colder. But I can’t pick her up and drag her into the house!
The Bengal cat named Siri came back tonight for a two week visit in the quilt shop. No problem there. She hangs out on the top shelf just out of my reach.
I spent all afternoon outside cleaning up houseplants and succulents before I move them back into the house. Each one was sprayed with malathion to kill any bugs that may have made a home in the plant during the summer.
And now Little Red! I had no idea I wanted a cute little ride but I saw a small black pickup last summer that I admired and recently mentioned to my friend, Bob. He found one in Albert Lea, MN, about 40 miles away. These little pickups were made in 2003, 2004, and 2005 only before Chevy discontinued making them because they weren’t as popular as they had hoped. The Chevy SuperSportRoadster, SSR, is a hardtop convertible. With the push of a button the hard top collapses into the bed of the truck! It’s amazing! Little Red might be 17 years old but has only 14,000 miles on it. And not a scratch or a chip on it anywhere!
Here it is in the showroom as a convertible.
If you’re really interested in the SSR, go online and learn more – I had no idea! I just saw a cute little pickup! As it turns out, that cute little pickup can almost do tricks!
The next time I take the hardtop down, I’ll take pictures.
So that’s a lot that’s happened in my life lately. And I am exhausted so goodnight, All!
