First of all I want to say Thank You to everyone who stopped by my Christmas in July Blog Party yesterday. There was so much traffic and there were soooo many comments! I LOVE IT! Hopefully some of you who visited for the first time will keep coming back to visit!
Now, for the winner of the Santa Bubble Light.... drumroll please......
Happy 81st Birthday Papa!I'm in the string of summer where I have three grandparents birthdays within a month. Today is my paternal grandfather's birthday. Papa had so many granddaughters that when we were little he joked that he would have to buy a tuxedo someday because there would be so many weddings. He has always called all of us granddaughters his "sweet-patooties", and he has called me his "mouthpiece" ever since I graduated from law school. Happy Birthday Papa, we love you!
Lola is still sleeping with me because she is still wearing her pink lampshade collar. The licking is somewhat better and she was able to not wear it for a couple of hours yesterday, but then it starts back. Aaaaggghhhhrrrr! Anyway, she woke up before 7 yesterday morning. I was going to stumble to the backyard to let her out. Luckily, divine intervention made me grab my robe instead of stumbling into my privacy-fenced back yard in a t-shirt and underwear, because this is what was hovering just above my yard.
It was even closer than this (since this is the photo after I darted back inside to locate the camera). Just for the record, Lola is very confused by these balloons. She is quite a watch-dog, but she just doesn't know about these things. We've had a few come over that looked like they were going to sit down in the yard. Lo thinks they are some sort of alien invasion from the sky or something. Once they turned their burners on to get some height, she made a B-line for the house.
