Post 200

This is the State Farm building I was at for 2 days in Coral Springs.

Boy what a week. Busy, busy, busy. You all know I went to South Florida to train a new receptionist. I went to Coral Springs and my son Wade got to go with me. I wouldn't suggest it as a vacation destination. BORING!!! Poor Wade had to keep himself occupied while I was at work. I'm glad I was only there a day and 1/2. He did find a 2-story flea market that had a car museum among other things. So that kept him kind of busy. Of course he brought me lunch and ate with me the first day. I got to leave at 2 the second day so we just at on the way home. We did find a rather interesting restaurant to eat at, though. It was called the Big Bear Brewing Company. What a fun place.

Here is a not so good picture of Wade outside the restaurant.
This was Wade's hamburger. He didn't put anything on it. He said it was great just the way it came. I got chicken tenders that came with BBQ sauce and HoneyMustard.

This was mine...enough chicken to feed an army.

A couple of lushes. Wade and I ordered the Beer Sampler. We got 8 different kinds of beers to try. I sipped all 8 of mine but only like 2 so that's all I drank. Poor Wade (yeah, right) had to drink all of his and 6 of mine. It's a good think they were small, lol.This was one of the cars at that museum Wade went to. You could sit in this one and have your picture taken.

And for those original Miami Vice is the car Don Johnson drove in the show. Not a great pic I know, but Wade tried his best. I didn't have a chance to go there.

Friday was the 13th. It was also the 17th anniversary of the first date with my husband. Our first date was also on a Friday the 13th in March of 1992. The rest is history.

And now I have to introduce the newest member of the family. Actually first I need to explain that we had to get rid of Tinkerbelle. She was just too much for this small house and yard. She had our yard all dug up and she kept escaping. But the icing on the cake was when we got home from work one day and she had Hut's chair in the living room all tore up. She was a great dog....she just needed someone to give her more attention than we could and someone who had lots of room to run. Plus kids. She loved kids. Well we took her back to animal control and they actually had had some other people interested in her when we adopted her and they were going to get in touch with them. So I'm sure she has a great new home.

I have still been kinda mopey though, since I lost Miss Piggy. Tinkerbelle was just too big. I needed a smaller dog. Well we went yard saling on Sunday and some people were giving away puppies. I really didn't want a puppy, what with potty training and all. But there was one and she just had to come home with us. She is a Chow/Curr mix. She won't be large dog, but she won't be a small lap dog either. She is beautiful and smart. Already she won't potty in the house. She does potty as soon as I take her outside. So she is going to be easily trained. She is only 4 weeks old. And here she is........

MOLLY MARCH. Molly because it suited her and March because that's when we got her.And another pic of the baby.

I just wanted to mention that my nephew, Griffin, is in a Trike/Bike a thon at his school to benefit St. Jude's Children's Hospital. The link to my Sis in Law, Missy's link is on my side bar. If you haven't already checked it out....head over that way. Please make a donation if you are able. She is also selling some cute things to help raise funds. Check it out....go on now....time's awastin'

Just look at my beautiful sister-in-law Bonnie and handsome nephew Wade. I'm so glad to see a picture of the two of you together.

I've never been to Coral Springs (which coast is it on?) ... but I'm glad Wade found something to occupy his time.

The beer sampler looks interesting ... lol ... I'd never try it though because I do not like beer.

Glad you were able to spend some quality time with your sweet boy.

Molly March is adorable ... you didn't even say anything to me about her! Shame, Shame ... LOL ... just teasing. Don't you know if we got a dog I would be shouting it to the world!!

Thanks for the little commercial about our fundraiser ... we've raised $70.00 so far!!
