Please take a moment to remember why we are celebrating. Thank you to all veterans, past and present. I appreciate your service. Remember, freedom isn't free.
Yesterday, DSO, Ernestine and I headed to Columbus, Ohio, for the 20th annual Ohio Pug Rescue reunion. Pugs in many colors and sizes. Lots of snorting going on but no snarling. Pugs are just the sweetest things :)
This shirt cracks me up. I found it on the internet a few years ago.
Born December 7, this sweet baby girl's name is Pearl. Get it? She was going to her foster home but foster mom Kelley said she wasn't going to be leaving. She has the most unusual coloring and such long legs, but what a cutie patootie :)
Gotta love those pug tongues.
The pug on the left was the first grey pug I think anyone has ever seen. Mom was white and dad was fawn colored. I bet there was some hanky panky some time in the past . . . lol.
Ernestine was pretty tired on the way home and we were stuck in traffic for over an hour and a half due to a vehicle fire.
It was a gorgeous evening for a plane ride. I think it's been two years since I put on my big girl panties and went up. It was smooth as glass. No bumps whatsoever. Wonderful.
The round thingy is the Rose Garden at Lakeview Park, two blocks from my house.
Northern Ohio is totally flat.
Landing. I always breathe a sigh of relief.
The California trip is quickly approaching. We leave Wednesday eve. Usually by this time I've at least made a packing list. I've been too busy doing yard work. Got 20 bags of mulch down. Bought 6 more today and I could use many, many more. A bag of mulch sure doesn't go far.
A few more pics from the gardens. The irises have started to bloom and they are simply beautiful.
Sweet Siberian iris. One of my favorites.
I have never had more than a few flowers on my dogwood tree. I am thrilled this year.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
