Busy! Gotcha Day!


After a long weekend of football
I thought I needed to take a trip to
PetSmart and get a new toy.  The drive
to LaCrosse was nice and relaxing.

But when we got home it was time for
yard work....


I did get Mike to help me out.

The fairies took a well deserved
break also and Henry from 
Gnomeville read them a story.
Wasn't that nice of him....


Gnomeville is busy as always....


Their apple crop is looking pretty good....


I guess things are starting to come 
around here in WI!
And I  LOVE our house!


Always busy with the yard, house and football....
but I am having fun!

AND
Mr. Ripley's 1st Gotcha Day
was Sunday!
We celebrated with treats and singing!
He decided to do his Elvis impressionation.....



not bad, huh?
Later -- Remington --
can't believe how time flies!
-- out!

Did Ripley sing "You Ain't Nothin' But An Orange Tabby?" on his gotcha day? Hee-Hee!
Your yard is looking good and it's all because of your hard work, I'm sure!

Morning Rem
The gray interior of your car enhances your beautiful black furs!!

Mom and I are tickled pink to see your Gnomes moved to Wisconsin with you and it looks like you have a yard made just for Newfie.

Happy 1st Gotcha Day to Mr. Ripley
and to quote Big E, 'thank you, thank you very much' for the impression.
Hugs from your BFFF

Are you sure it is an Elvis impersonnation?
I'd say it is the Talented Mr. Ripley, by Alain Delon.
They both had such a smile!
You must be the happiest dog in that house!

The Army of Four said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Ripley!!! Mom says you're more handsome than that Elvis dude.

Besides apples growing, your growing gnomes? What kind of seeds to they have? We found an apple tree on a walk in the big cemetery. Lee gathered them up in her big shirt lucky she had on a camisole top.
Thanks for being a friend
