Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

In Arrears...

We are seriously in arrears thanking Oskar and Emerald for these amazingly wonderful awards. We apologize for our tardy and overdue thanks; to Emerald, for our Doggie Bloggie Award, and to Emerald AND Oskar for the Most Versatile Blogger Award. Huge Hugs to you both!!!!!

The Bloggie Doggie Award requires that we:

1. Thank the pupper that gave us the award and link back to them -

2. Name 10 things about us -

3. Pass this award on to 15 blogger pals (or not-yet-pals)

4. Comment on the blog award recipients

5. Heheh: Have fun!

So: what we are gonna do is have moi, Sammie, tell 5 things about me; then, Avalon will paw 5 things about her. Here goes:

1. Since Emerald told us we got this award cause we loves the water so much, I guess it's no secret that we adores swimming!

2. Most of my pals couldn't possibly know how much I loves foodables or even non-foodables.

3. And I can't imagine that y'all know how much I loves chasing my kong hehehe!

4. How many of you know that I have this propensity for eating poo? Especially horsie droppings?

5. I absolutely loves my Dad and am all over him when he gets home at night. (He always takes me for a walkie, which I adore.) And here's Avalon:

6. I like duckies.

7. I absolutely tutely am in loves with my sisfur, Sammie.

8. Good things happen when Ma puts us in the car.

9. I have a passion for and even know what the word, COOKIES, means.

10. I love my home and everything in it and that means Sammie, Mom and Dad.

And next, we are honored to accept this amazing award. We must:

1. Write 7 things about us - since we just told you lotsa stuff, we're going to embarrass Ma and have her do the telling hehehe!

2. Pass this award onto 15 blogger pals.

3. Link back to the givers of this award and comment on the Blog award recipients.

Okay... here goes...

1. I love being semi-retired!

2. I am horribly disorganized. Since I tend to procrastinate, this is definitely a problem.

3. Life here is very dog and grandchildren-centered, which makes life somewhat hectic at times!

4. The next year will have to be intensely focused as my husband is retiring in September 2011, and we'll be making a lot of changes. You'll hear about it in the poor dogs' blog!

5. I am frustrated by not getting to our bloggie pals' posts as much as I'd wish - ironic how I take the pups out to play, take photos, and then race back to upload and blog, when I really should be doing the laundry or something.

6. I'm dying to find software for movies! That works!

7. Someday, I wanna unnderstand about Photoshop!

And that's it, kids! I'm gonna be a wimp and ask, PLEASE, that for anyones who do not have these awards to kindly take them and tell us a little bit about yourselves, your doggehs or your maiden aunt?? We love hearing about your foibles and loves!

Congrats on your awards - very nice ones!!! We are also way behind in thanking and posting about awards.

Great sharing - we haven't had any water experiences but we love watching all of yours. And Avalon - that word "cookies" is truly a magical one. And Mom, your life sounds a lot like our Mom's all the way from dogs and grandkids to impending Dad retirement.

Have a spectacular weekend.

CRAP! I keep getting blogger errors on my comments! Since this is the third time, my paws are getting tired, so let me just say I liked your last two posts a lot and hopefully you will get this one.

We always like reading stuff about our bloggy friends. If you want to talk software for movies (do you mean videos?), drop me an email and tell me what you want to accomplish.

We did the bloggy tell all with a Versatile blogger award posting. Here is the link.
