Not a lot of time

There's not alot of time left.

I've been in training. I've been jumping over and off stuff for awhile now.

I've been practicing with my brother.

I've been checked out by the doctor.

I've got my papers.

I never met a snow fall I didn't like. I love snow and can move it in the snow!

I've talked to a coach...he doesn't say much but.....

I'm really hoping I can make the sleigh ride team.

If only this nose was a different color......

Fall walk with the President

Can you spot the dale? He blends right in during the fall.

The president/brother aka. Quincey needs refreshment from his people.

He loves these balls from the trees.

We look good.

Zip it!

Oh yeah Dad zipping it~

Signing their lives away.

These young bucks are going to keep mom and dad safe. We love Ricky and Kelly.

Gear up.....ummmmm heavy gear.

Little safe heads all lined up to the top of the mountain....ok, mountain is a stretch......big huge hill.

Daddy is afraid of heights....we forgot to tell you that.

Beautiful top of the mountain in Pennslyvania.

Safety first....and lots of it!

Daddy crossing the sway bridge. In addition to Ziplining, there were challenges like this. Crossing a sway bridge. BTW, it was super windy.

Mommy getting reading to cross a tight rope 20 feet in the air with just a rope! Ok she was strapped in above her head but it was very challenging.....her arms are sore today from hanging on!

The trees were beautiful.

The gear made them feel like bad asses! BOL>



Comes!!!!! Smiling all the way.

My bad ass P's. (work with me pups....)

Another challenge....

The only way out of the trees is to repel. Very fun!

Their group of tough people..

The only thing I'm zipping are my zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's......

PSU visit

If you've read this blog for any time, you would know we are Penn State Fans.

Matt graduated from PSU circa 1982 - He has wonderful memories and stories of a young Matt. He likes to tell us what he did, where he studied, where he worked and of course where he celebrated his beloved football team.

Matt is distraught over the horrible happenings that recently were discovered. He is devastated for the all families and his beloved Joe Paterno.

It is a very sad time.

Weekend Wonder

This is mom's favorite time of the year. Look at those lovely tree colors!

Look at this lovely Airegirl. Sitting so pretty....she could not have done this....

Teeth marks in the butter. That butter is gonna be in your first batch of chocolate chip cookies, mom!

How on earth did those teeth marks get in there?

Even Roman Spirit is backing me up, mom...he says I didn't do it.

Maybe this little guy did it. Not dad...he likes chocolate chippers. Yeah, I'm sure it's this guy....why would he be praying all the time if he didn't do it? Huh? HUH?

Have I ever introduced you to Ace?

He's a very big white German Shepherd who lives across the street. He's very very very big....but a gentle giant.

Mommy likes him. The feeling is mutual. Slurp!

My Howl-o-ween job

The pictures don't match the story today. But I have to tell you about my new job.

Last night a three foot dragon tried to storm my castle. Well, I wasn't having any of it. Daddy went outside to see this dragon and gave him candy.

What the heck?

Mommy put me outside.....I didn't mind that a bit! I could protect my turf out there too.

There was so much activity in the hood last night I calmed down and was allowed back inside.

I stood guard at the door and when a Star Wars guy, or an Army guy or a princess came to the door I trotted to Mom and Dad and they got off their tushes and went to the door. God forbid they miss a step of Dancing with the Stars....

I didn't bark at all. I actually enjoyed the company and tried to smell everyone. I LOVED when the kids said....Hi Violet!

They love me! I'm a good Howl-o-ween doggie!
