Rescued!

On Sunday, Elaine needed someone to go with her to Charlotte to pick up two dogs. One is a white Pomeranian and the other is his buddy...a Schnoodle. Mom, Dad and I went with her to get the two adorable dogs. Here they are back at her house.

10/15/2008 Update! White Pommie was adopted and is doing very well in his new home. The gray Schnoodle is still with Elaine. She has named him McGruebber. He is the cutest thing you ever saw but he does have a little territorial problem that Elaine is working on. He may or may not be able to be adopted out. She can't adopt him out to someone with an aggression problem unless said person knows a lot about dogs and how to assert themselves as the leader of the pack. McGruebber loves his new Mommy and gets along well with all the other doggies. But when other humans get too close to him or his Mommy, he gets growly and barky and has snapped. This dog would be put to sleep in any humane society because they can't take the liability of adopting out a dog that shows any aggression. But Gruebby is safe and will have a home even if it means he stays with Elaine and Ronnie. They love him and he loves them and is happy. They know how to handle his problem.

11/25/2008 Update! McGruebber found a new home and is very happy. He is doing real well!

Labor Day On The Lake

Stan took Aaron, Evans and one of their friends fishing on Lake Bowen yesterday. They had a good time together fishing and swimming but then the boat refused to crank up and they had to get a tow from the lake rangers. Stan jokingly calls his boat the S.S. Mishap.

Here is Aaron.


Stan's big catch!


Here is Evans.


Aaron and Evans swimming.




This was all Aaron caught yesterday.


Now here was the big catch of the day and Stan caught it! He was tickled! I wish he would have brought it home and I could have fried it!

First High School Football Game This Year

I think Friday night was the first football game of the regular season for high school. Our nephew, Aaron, plays on the Broome High School Football team. I was too tired to make it down to York to see them play but Stan went. Stan's brother, Kenny, is Aaron's father and he went, as well as Stan's mother and sister...Aaron's Grandma and Aunt Angie. Here is Aaron's cheering section!
