My Birthday today!!

My birthday is today and I am 76 years old!!!!!!!  I never thought I would get this old!!!  The pictures of me are from 5 years old to almost 76.  The last picture was taken just a month ago when my friend came over for a play date with her dog a Greyhound.  From the pictures you can tell I love love love dogs!!!!  They are a very big part of my 76 years on this world.

Sweet Zoie & Strawberries

Can you believe in the cold weather we are still eating strawberries from our garden everyday!!! We planted (well Tom did most of it) over 200 strawberries in the ground a few weeks ago and one already has a bloom on it!! We kept a few in their pots so we would keep right on getting berries and in case something happened to the ones in the ground!!  The ones in the ground have taken their transplant great and are all doing wonderful!!  The ones in the pots are still giving berries for us .  Some days it is only one big berry some days we have 2 or 4 !!!
The first picture of Zoie is her beside me every morning while I am on the computer!!!  Yesterday I was making soup and while I was busy in the kitchen she was busy tearing up my walking boot!!! The left one!!  She is still a big big PUPPY!!!!!

Love coming your way,  Zoie & Fern

Happy went to the vets yesterday and she had blood work done.  This 19 to 21 year old cat has nothing wrong with her kidney's , nothing wrong with her liver!!! She has nothing wrong with her heart and  lungs either!!!!   Bless her healthy heart she just has ARTHRITIS   !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy is getting alone pretty well with Zoie most of the time !!  The only time we have problems is when Zoie is being too puppy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Love coming your way,  Happy Zoie & Fern
PS Have a wonderful week-end!!!!!

For those of you that have followed my blog for a couple of years knows I have feed the coons out of self defense for years and years!!!  Money is very tight for us now and we just don't have enough to feed the coons and a big dog so I made a deal with the money maker in this family,  TOM that I would stop feeding them food that we had to buy!!!!  POOR coons!!!!  Some have been coming for years!!!  So now that we are eating very healthy and buying organic food from mostly the farmer that grows it I have lots of tops--- lots of greens that I would throw out to the compost bin.  So I thought I'll cook those greens and potato skins and such as that and add a little rice and make them a little stew.  So now I know you all will think I am crazy and I probably am but that is what I am doing so that the coons still have something good to eat and it is probably better for them than dog food anyway!!!  I know I am doing something that I don't have to do!!!!  But I have grown to care a great deal for these wild animals and I know they depend on me to feed them SO I am !!!!!
Zoie wants to get too them but of course she can't!!!   Bambi in her first years here wanted to get to them too!!!   Amanda wanted to two!!!! They both got use to the coons after years of seeing them!!!!

Next Wednesday it will be 3 weeks

We had a very good Thanksgiving!!!!!!  It was just Tom and I and the cat and dog!!!  Tom worked on Friday!!! 

My G-daughter called from Vegas.  She had gone to be with her boy-friend so she wasn't alone.  They were having a good time with friends at his home.

My oldest son called.  He and his wife were at her family's home for the week-end. So all had a wonderful time for Thanksgiving!!!  I called my youngest son but got no answer so I don't know what he was doing!!
That is not new!!! I usually hear from him after the fact!!

Zoie is working out so very well.  She is a wonderful girl and just right for me with one exception !!!!!!!!!!!  I am too old for her!!  I can't keep going and walking all day long and that is what she wants to do!!!!   That is all she wants to do  WALK & WALK & WALK & WALK.   Like I have nothing else to do all day long everyday!!!!!!  I am doing my best and she is trying to let me do other things like cook ect!!!   LOL

Love coming your way,  Zoie & Fern

Zoie is so much NOT

Hi Blogville friends this Monday morning!!!

It has been beautiful weather here.  Warm but not too warm!!!

Zoie is not like Tinker was at all.  Zoie does not want to be alone out in the yard!!
She wants to be with me at all times and Tinker was so much more independent
Zoie is showing no interest in what is on the other side of the fence.  She is happy to chase the smells in the fence!!  So much better!!!
I surely hope Zoie is in her forever home!!!
I hope you all have a good week!!  It is going to be a very busy week and I am going to take time off the blogging this week.  So I 'll be back next Monday
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!! I hope it is  wonderful for you and your family!!!
 Love coming you way,  Zoie & Fern

10 Days with Zoie

Well friend Blogger doesn't want to load pictures today.  I'll try again after I  write Zoies  up date.
Zoie has begun to settle in here really well.  She loves me to death and I love her to death too!!!  She has totally wrecked all of Bambi's toys but two.  A unstuffy toy and a tug-a-war toy is worse for wear but not totally destroyed!!!  She has been using Bambi's mattress that is really too small for her but she will have to make do for a while longer b/c Tom didn't take in much $$ this week so her mattress has to wait!!!!  More toys too will have to wait!!!!  She gets by tho she has critters smells to chase.........  
 Now Blogger loaded the picture!! 
Have a wonderful week-end Friends!!!!  WE plan too!!!!

Zoie is one year and 5 months and one day old!!

We got Zoie's medical  records finally .  This little girl must have come in season one time already.  She was born June 16th 2010!!!!   We will have to have her spayed soon.  She had been checked for heart worms last January but not given any heart worm treatment.  So we will have to have her checked again and then start taking heart worm pills once a month!
That photo of her~~~~ she was just standing there so pretty and I clicked the shutter and she had just started to squat!!!  LOL  I didn't get the pretty stance!!!   lol
Se is my girl!!  She is working out so well so far.  She is such a good girl!!
I have not been to everybody's blog to thank you for your comments,, but I am trying!!  I am spending so much time with her out in the yard  and then there is HOUSE-WORK!!!!!!!!!!    Not that I clean-- Really, but I do cook and garden!!!!

Zoie had a play date

Yesterday Zoie and I had company.

 When I gave Tinker back to the rescue group it broke my heart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I wanted another dog and I knew it had to be a bigger dog so that the dog would not be able to dig out of the fence so easily!!! Of course I wanted another sight hound!  I was in touch with a retired Greyhound rescue group but nothing was happening.  One of the group knew about this Weimaraner that so badly needed a good home.   I waited for 2 weeks for some one to show me me a dog or even just say hey we are very busy we haven't forgot you. But no one did. So I said we would see the Weimaraner.   The rest is history!!
Remember I told you all that I developed a thyroid problem about 18 years ago.  This lazy thyroid causes hair loss though out the body.  I told you that my hair has finally turned gray and that I am going to be 76 years old next month!!!  Well you all have seen pictures of me when I was younger not of me now!!  I see pictures of myself and I think oh my God I look so old!!!  Then I think WELL YOU ARE OLD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am going to show you me now!!!!!!  I don't feel like I look!!!  I feel like I use to look and Tom tells me he still see the girl I use to be not the now me!!!
Yesterday we had a play date with a new friend Elaine and her Greyhound Kristy!!
They came about 1 Pm and left after 3 pm. Here are the pictures!!  Loading pictures on Blogger are not what it use to be!!!
Kristy loved me so much and there was a little jealousy coming from both dogs!! But soon the dogs were enjoying each other and  being together in there running around the yard !!!  It all ended very well!!!

Good morning Friends of Blogville.
Yay I got the picture to load only one!!! I did everything the same way as I did it then it loaded 2 of the same picture!!!  So I guess it was just Google.  ( I am very Dyslexic today!!! )

Zoie day 4

I don't know what I am doing wrong with this 2 pictures loading at the same time thing, do you,, that are the same picture????   Strange!!!

I want to thank you so much for all your comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I wish I had the time to answer each one.  I have this new dog of the start of day 4 and she is taking up all my time and will for at least 2 or 3 weeks. She was in need of so much attention!!!!  She is loving all the love I am giving her!!!  I am walking and playing with her so much more then I would have been able to if it were not for Tinker!!!!  Thank you Tinker.   I wish I could have 2 dogs!!!!    B/c  Zoie is not going anywhere I am not!!!!!!!!!!

Zoie with some pictures (hope)

Hi Blog Friends,
This is as good as it gets for now!!!  The top pic I took yesterday  and it is the only one that had all of her in.  The bottom 2 Tom took last night in the dark.
She is a big big girl.  She is so very sweet !!!    She is as tall as I am!!  Zoie is here b/c she needed a home so badly.  She is probably too big for me but I am going to try very hard to make it work.  She is still a puppy and I know it is going to be hard for me!!!  I am going to give it my best shot!!!!!
I'll try for better pictures tomorrow.
Love coming your way,  Happy (not happy)  Zoie and  Fern
