Did you see it?

Skywriter over NOLA today!  

We hate it too...

Sorry kid.

Puppies Behind Bars: Puppies Behind Bars

I have posted about this program before and just got an email from them.  I think this is such a win/win situation.  I would be willing to bet some of these inmates have never had the blessing of being so unconditionally loved.  Actually, I think you can live a lifetime in the free world and never have the true experience of that.  Unconditional love is amazing but I can't imagine how they must feel when they have to let them go but I am sure they know they are doing so to better the lives of all involved. 

Puppies Behind Bars: Puppies Behind Bars trains inmates to raise puppies to become service dogs for the disabled and explosive detection canines for law enforcement.:

My sweet little girl loves to be outside.  I hate that she has bricks vs grass to relax on.  Perhaps one day she will have a big huge yard and swimming pool to enjoy...

Can I have some cheese or sprinkles?

Barb update...

Walking Tink today... we may be all clear!  Fingers and paws crossed.

They went to Jazz Fest again...

What are we going to do today Ms. Pamela?

Don't tell them that we are both out...

Great reminder!

ER Dr. Daddy

Hard worker, loves me... lets me walk these people for one hour almost every day.  He is THE BEST!

Fair enough...

Someone sent me a private message on Facebook...  

 Someone just sent me a PM to ask how I know Derek. Derek is my little baby brother. We are all adopted and we adopted Derek when I was 9 years old. He was my living baby doll and I am so proud of all that he has accomplished and continues to accomplish. Post Federal Flood, he helped with NOLAPC when I was in a bind because he knew how important this company is to me. I still have clients who say... "only in NOLA would you have the pleasure of having your dogs walked by a Grammy Award winning Jazz Musician. He would do any thing I asked and likewise. I love him with all that I have.


Mommy is off playing...

So we get Ms. Pamela to play with!

That is pretty familiar to me too...

Funny how that works!

We want to skip to the cookie part!

It is Friday Mommy!


Still waiting... Oh my!

I am 1 today!

Happy Birthday to ME!  

I totally said that... when I was able to walk the babies.

My cancer hurts today...

I need positive vibes, thoughts, prayers and extra cookies.

Good morning NOLA

Ms Holly

Today is the day Ms. Holly told Mommy she is ready to rest.  Sleep little girl... Remy will be waiting for you.  You are a beautiful, graceful, sweet baby.  Until...

What the kids are saying...

"In my kitchen" =  in my space, my bidness, etc.

Your welcome.  Here to make us all a little hipper than we were yesterday.

Not just #nolajazzfestproblems #dogwalkerproblems

"What we could use is more rain" said no one ever in NOLA.

Raining cats and dogs again...


I have no idea...

Push presents!

Firstly, I think I need 8 because I never got one for these two. So next year I am going to need 10. Just giving fair warning. Start shopping!


This is a huge problem! I don't think that is how it should work!

You know you are from Louisiana when...

1. Your sunglasses fog up when you step outside.

2. You reinforce your attic to store Mardi Gras beads.

3. You save newspapers, not for recycling, but for tablecloths at crawfish boils.

4. When you give directions you use "lakeside and riverside" not north & south.

5. Your ancestors are buried above the ground.

6. You get on a green trolley car to go to the park and a red one to the French Quarter.

7. You take a bite of five-alarm chili and reach for the Tabasco.

8. Every once in a while, you have waterfront property.

9. You sit down to eat boiled crawfish and your host says, "Don't eat the dead ones," and you know what that means.

10. You don't learn until high school that Mardi Gras is not a national holiday.

11. You push little old ladies out of the way to catch Mardi Gras beads.

12. Little old ladies push YOU out of the way to catch Mardi Gras beads.

13. You leave a parade with footprints on your hands.

14. You believe that purple, green, and gold look good together.

15. And you don't think twice about eating something which has all three of these colors. In fact, you love it.

16. Your last name isn't pronounced the way it's spelled.

17. You know what nutria is but you still pick it to represent your baseball team.

18. No matter where else you go in the world, you are always disappointed in the food.

19. Your town is low on the education chart, high on the obesity chart and you don't care because you're No. 1 on the party chart.

20. Your house payment is less than your utility bill.

21. You don't show your "pretties" during Mardi Gras.

22. You know that Tchoupitoulas is a street and not a disease.

23. Your grandparents are called "Maw-Maw" and "Paw-Paw."

24. Your Santa Claus rides an alligator and your favorite Saint is a football player.

25. You cringe every time you hear an actor with a Southern or Cajun accent in a "New Orleans-based" movie or TV show.

26. You have to reset your clocks after every thunderstorm.

27. You're walking in the French Quarter with a plastic cup of beer.

28. When it starts to rain, you cover your beer instead of your head.

29. You eat dinner out and spend the entire meal talking about all the other good places you've eaten.

30. You decorate your e-mails with purple, green, and gold.

For reals?!

Why "free to a good home" on Craig's list is a bad idea...

Paws crossed for 45.  Jackwagon.

Action shots!

What does it say Ms. Pamela?

I may have a smile but I am not happy

I have had enough of this rain...


I really do not want to go to skool today! 

All smiles!


Tink is still helping Mommy get better but still waiting...

A view of Jazz Fest....

Gosh - that is a great photo!  
Why do they call this Cities of the Dead again?

Hang on... need to smell!
