Just a little sad

For the first time, I've had to delete a comment on my blog. Someone tried to use their comment as a means to get others to come to their blog. That wouldn't bother me, but it was porn related. I did not want that associated with my blog. That someone would use my blog that way, makes me a little sad. I should expect it, but this is the first time that has happened. Oh well. Sadly, I am sure it won't be the last.

At last, Sonic!!!

Finally, after being patient for nearly six years (that's how long I've been in Florida), there is a Sonic less than 15 minutes from my house. I guess it's been there almost a month, but I just found out last night. (It's not in the town I actually live in, but the town next to mine.) Anyway, we went last night and I am so happy. I love Sonic and it's one of the things I've really missed since I moved to Florida. And I am not the only one who wanted one. We've heard people were camped out for opening day. I know it was busy last night. Anyway, I just wanted to share how happy I am about Sonic being near by.

Goodbye Amor

These pictures, taken last week, are of Amor and her mate Poseidon (Po). Amor is the lovie with yellow coloring. Day before yesterday Amor passed away during the night.

Amore came to live with us after she was already an adult. We were in a pet store in Melbourne, FL and there was Amor. Her owner, who used to work there, was giving her up to make way for a nursery (don't get me started on that one). So, Amor was for sell for $50, which included her cage and toys. She was so frightened and I felt so bad for her that we paid for her and took her hom. But I'm afraid ww were never able to conquer her fear of humans, so after about a year, we had the opportunity to adopt Po and we took it. They have been madly in love ever since.

I am so sad that she has passed on. Amor was never mean, inspite of her fear. And even after her and Po became a couple, she never became the mean, bitey bird that I have so often heard about. Amor was just a very sweet bird and she will be sorely missed. Amor is not alone on the other side, as Micron and Valentine are waiting for her, as is Lady our bassett/beagle mix.

I do worry about Po, he looks so lonely in that cage. In awhile, we will probably seek a new mate for Po, but not right away. I really do believe he'll want another friend. Po and Amor were such a cute couple.

Goodbye Amor! We'll miss you!!

Great Customer Service

For you digi scrappers, I just wanted to post about the great customer service I got from Blue Flombingo. I had some problems downloading the files I purchased, but they really went out of their way to make sure I was able to get all of the files I purchased.

It seems like these days you only hear about bad customer service, so I wanted to take a moment to mention the good customer service I received.

Help Save a Dog

Daisy is a dog who doesn't deserve to die. She is a puppy whose owner made a mistake and left her alone outside a store. An elderly lady came outside. The puppy got excited, jumped on the woman and the woman was hurt. Notice I didn't say bit or attached, just jumped on her like most puppies would. Now, we can debate the actions of the owner all day, but the dog was just being a puppy. So, you may ask, what is the crime Daisy committed? She is part pit bull. And so, it has been determined she needs to die. Although if a full-blooded poodle had behaved in the same way, no one would be saying this. So, please take a moment to read more about Daisy by clicking the link below and then sign the petition to save her life. They are trying to gather 1000 signatures and I'd like to see them meet their goal as Daisy does not deserve to die.

Yes, I have been gone awhile

My husband was really sick at the beginning of the year and I just didn't have time or blog. Since then I just haven't had the desire. However, recently, I've wanted to get back to it, so here I am. Now, if I only had something exciting to tell you about. lol However, I am going to try and stay on the blog train here and will be back soon. Hopefully with something to talk about. :O)

Now, to get back to scrapbooking...
