Settle down with a drink and some dramomine

 Monday night, he was scared to death of the cats.
Petey is our granddog, and daughter and grandson drove to Mobile Alabama for vacation, so Petey stayed here.
 Monday night, he was scared to death of the cats, who have no clue what a dog is, think they are just strange cats.
Bubba kept trying to play, and Petey would have no part in that.  I finally put the cats in their bedroom, so he could calm down
Tuesday by noon, he'd decided that if they kept a bit of distance, he could sit in the floor. 
By Tuesday night, he decided that Bubba  was tolerable, and they
could get a bit closer.
Soon we were playing chase in and around the old chair.
Now we can actually touch, without being scared to death,

where did he go, he was right there.

Oh, there he is, I'll hide.

off we go again.

Booger wants to know what the heck is so interesting about playing with
that long haired cat.
He only wanted to comb his tail with his
front paws, and give him
a bath.

Photobombing 101

I found a vase that I really liked, the colors are stunning, and I had to bring it home.

I promised my friends that I'd do a couple of photos of it, so they could either laugh at my taste, or OOOOH and AAAH
along with me.  
So off I go to a flat surface, that none of the family 
will show up and bother me,
the washer. 

I fixed a 'curtain' behind the vase
and reached for my camera...
First shot, 
Bubba says Hi.

OK so now you get the idea, Bubba has no intention of
leaving the room.
May be getting sleepy

No, just licking his chops.
Ok now, Bubba, it's time for you
to move along
and let 
finish my 
photo shoot.

Thanks Bubba, now I'll hide the vase
so you can't knock it over.
I love these colors, now to find a spot that it can sit
for awhile.

WOMAN OF COURAGE by Wanda E Brunstetter

When Amanda Pearson's fiance tells her on the eve of their wedding day, that he no longer wishes to marry her, but is in love with her best friend, instead, she decides to travel to  the northwest to a Quaker mission set up by some people she knows, and work teaching the Native Americans about God.  Her father sells their home, and goew with her, hiring a guide to show them the way.  Little did they know how dangerous and hard travel would be, and how many heartaches would hit so close together.  Surrounded by an unfriendly war party, Amanda grabs her father's Bible, which had fallen out of her pack, and suddenly the war party started backing away.
Gravely ill, she is found by Buck McFadden, son of a white man, and Two Feathers, a Nez Perce` woman.  He took her to his friend's cabin, where Jim's wife who was the daughter of a Medicine Man took care of her, until she was well.  Then she asks him to either guide her, or find her a guide, to go on to the northwest.

I'd give this book 5 stars.  Ms Brunstetter has managed to compine action, descriptions of beautiful scenery, courage, and romance, along with a Christian story.  

I was given a copy of this book to read and give an honest review.  No other compensation was given.  All opinions expressed here are my own.
