We have had such a great day! Armando, Laci and their 4 kids came about 1:00 and even brought us lunch from Hardee’s! The puppies were a big hit as you can see by these pictures!

And here is Armando with Telly.
Armando was Telly’s previous owner in Mason City and I met him when he was working for River City Fence. While they were installing my fencing he kept telling me his dog would love it here on the farm and I kept saying I can’t take in everybody’s dog! He said he had taken the dog in when a friend didn’t want her anymore but Telly simply wouldn’t stay put in his yard! She kept jumping his 4′ fence. His persistence paid off and after several pleading calls from him I agreed to take her. She remembers him immediately! He has since started his own fencing company – Martinez Custom Fencing in Mason City. We keep in touch but it’s hard to find the time to get together – he is sooooo busy!!!
So that was my day 1-6. Then Sam and the kids came to meet the puppies – oh my, such fun!
Here’s Lucy – see Owen looking down at the puppies in the dog bed behind – he must be deciding which one he wanted to hold.
I cut off Lucy’s puppy, I see.
During all this puppy time, Aidan, age 10, was driving the golf cart. Armando’s kids must have put on about 50 miles this afternoon – it’s a big draw, those golf carts!
So it has been a fabulous day but I am exhausted. I haven’t gotten to sew anything all week however so tonight’s the night to start. Let me catch up on the Dirty Dozen before I close.
I am mesmerized by this quilt by Kay! I think I have Blanche Young’s book where this came from. Kay is having knee surgery on Monday – best of luck to you, Kay! You’ll do great!
And here’s a great little $5.00 pattern found in our online shop called Pumpkin Spice.
A friend sent this today and I thought all of you would like it, too!
I have to close with sad news – we lost Betsy today. She had 10 great years, more than most goats can say. It was a good day for me to be distracted. RIP, Betsy!
