TRANSPARENT THURSDAY

MY EAR
Is transparent with the sun shining through it

WATER

This is the shower in our guest bathroom...the shower lever sprung a leak.
THE REST OF THE STORY
A couple of weekends ago my human sis and her hubby were visiting.  Smarty pants aka human sis came down after her shower to ask if there was a charge for the extra water feature in the shower. Mom gave her the stinky eye while saying it was
ok when I cleaned the bathroom room up before you arrived.
YOU see
When you turn the crystal knob, water is supposed to come out of
the faucet only.  Then you press the lever to turn on the shower. BINGO sis got a surprise. Water came out of the faucet, the lever and the shower head all at one time. Sis said it was pretty convenient to get everything rinsed off at once. MOL MOL
Fast forward...plumber came last week..the leak in the lever was due to a worn out diveter.  He said in his 24 years of plumbing he had never seen one do that.  Usually the leak inside the wall causing a great big mess.A disaster was diverted!! 
Too bad it is repaired I could have enjoyed a refreshing sip for the lever leak.
NEVER A DULL MOMENT HERE.

SENSES

SMELL
Mom's stinky feet


 TASTE
Not that I got to taste them but Dad saw an
easy peasy delish recipe for biscuits in the newspaper.  
Mom made them for his Father's Day supper.
3 ingredient biscuits recipe at the bottom
Dad especially liked them because they are bite size and he
says he can eat more. 

 SIGHT
Our front yard faces North so we don't get lots of sun 
We have 4 built in planters on our deck.
Dad recently bought new plants for this pot
I can see it from my dining room window.  I'm a girl and 
girls love purple you know

Recipe:
3 ingredient biscuits
1- 8oz package of canned biscuits
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 tablespoons of crumbled blue cheese
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Cut biscuits into quarters, arrange in two 8" round baking dishes.
Melt together the butter and blue cheese. Pour over biscuits in 
both dishes.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown
(NOTE:  Mom does not like blue cheese but she likes theses biscuits, the flavor is not that strong).  They are really tasty
too!!

A Garden for Remington

Many of you were blogging friends of Remington,
the gentle Newfie.  If you did not know Remington
Click here to visit his blog.  Beth is no longer posting to his blog so Mom volunteered to prepare a post about his
Garden. 

Rem entertained us daily.
Remington and his Beth were FRIENDS to many.
Remington was only 4 years old when he made his trip to the Rainbow Bridge.   He had been blogging for his entire life.
A handful of Rem's furiends put their heads together
to come up with a way to honor Rem and let Beth and 
Mike know how much Rem meant to us.


January 9, 2009-March 4, 2013 

Our original plan was to plant a tree for Remington with the donations from his friends......
BUT lo and behold Beth and Mike
planted a Garden on the side of their house.
This was Remington's favorite spot to play. 
To quote Beth,
"Each year and with each blossom we will think of him...this side of the house was also Remington's favorite place to play catch."
THANK YOU 
MY FRIENDS."
The garden contains 5 butterfly bushes, 2 yellow rose bushes,
1 Rose of Sharon, 1 Hardy Hibiscus, 2 red, 2 yellow climbing rose bushes (at the center trellis) and to the left of the trellis many day lilies




Remington wore many hats....
and promoted many causes.  His favorite was 
READING!!!!!
We had enough donations to also 
buy books to be donated to a local
school in Honor of Remington.
Beth will take the books to the 
school this fall.


The books selected  won a book award named after
Dr. Seuss (The Geisel Award) which evidently started in 2006
Click on the link below to read about the books and the award

Remington, *My Friend, 
(*Rem's favorite expression)
you will never be forgotten...you touched the hearts
of everyone who knew you.

Run free, chase footballs and catch snowflakes
and most of all keep an eye on the man in the 
MOON
HUGS 
YOUR BFFF MADI AND MOM

MEET MY CABINET: MR.PIP

 TODAY IT IS MY PLEASURE TO FEATURE
MR. PIP
I, love a man in a bow tie, and Mr. Pip
wears it with such style!!

COMMISSIONER OF WARDROBE AND APPEARANCE
1.          Please introduce yourself, tell us your age and a very special trait.

My name is Pip and I am about 15 years young.

Likes - cats, green olives, fancy costumes, peanut butter, eating paper towels, barking at deer, watching Oprah, and contemplating life from the safety of my mom’s lap.

Dislikes - stairs, basic commands, hot days, getting my nails trimmed, my prescription low fat dog food, being away from home, and long walks.

I share my home with two cats, one rabbit, and a couple of humans. My special trait is (insert drum roll) …I may look like a dog, but I’m secretly part cat.  

2.         If you had an alter ego, who would you like to be and why

I would like to be a superhero because I like the snazzy outfits I love to help peeps and furry friends around the world.

I’d also love to be a big dog for a day. Do you think Brother Roo would trade places with me for a day?

3.         What do you like best/least about where you live

I live in the Midwest and like it just fine …however, my assistant would like to live on one of the coasts. She says I would love the ocean and mountains.

4.         Who are some peeps/furiends you’d like to meet and why

Oh brother, this list is going to be LONG. I have already been very fortunate to meet fellow blogging buddies: Sugar, Bunny and Morgan, Jazzi, Two Pitties in the City, and Neeko.

I would love to meet any and all blogging buddies, but especially: Frankie and Ernie, Puddles, Roo, Sally and Alien, Phantom and the Woos, Molly The Wally and Pip, Sarge, Corbin, Marg and all her furries, Mayzie and Brudder Ranger, Maggie Mae and Max, The Krusty Krew, Asta, Goose, Bert, Bertie, the Piappies, Dommy, Sasha, Bart and Ruby, The White Dog Army, and of course, MAYOR MADI!

Madi here...Pip was my date to the Valentine's Day Ball 
 Talk about hot to trot he was most dashing in his Tux


5.         If you could give one piece of random advice what would it be?

When life gives you lemons, eat ice cream or cheeseburgers or french fries or peanut butter sandwiches

6.         What do you do for fun

I like to ride in my stroller and watch the world go by.  I also like to bark out orders at my assistant and sleep on the couch with my feline sisters.
7.         What is the first thing you do each morning

The very first thing I do is bark until my assistant wakes up and sets me on the floor. I used to be able to jump on and off the bed, but not anymore. The next thing I do is pee …sometimes before my assistant has a chance to get dressed and take me outside. Bawhahahahahahahaha!

8.         What is the first thing you notice about a new friend

Their heart – if they are kind-hearted I welcome them with open paws. Oh, and a good sense of humor is a must!

9.         Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name.

I was abandoned like trash on September 10, 2001. I was left in a dirty carrier outside a pet store near Wrigley Field with multiple untreated health issues – many of which I still struggle with today.  Early on, I was terrified of everything – new people, other dogs, going outside, etc. But with a loving family and the support of my feline sisters, I eventually blossomed into the confident, sharply dressed, happy dog you know today.

10.        What is your absolute favorite food

Well geez, where do I begin ...I love anything and everything! With the exception of my low-fat, prescription dog food, I’ve yet to discover a food I don’t like. Bawhahahahahahahahaha!


BONUS:
Pip as you know your are this Cat's Meow.  I love everything about you...in particular you are one snazzi dresser.  So tell us when you discovered you loved clothes?  did it take you long to develop you own style such as the Bow Tie....and you hats that you wear.   Oh and what is your yearly clothing budget?  MOL they don't call mom Nosey Rosey for nothing.

Well, I have always loved clothes …it all started on my first Halloween with my family. My assistant dressed me up as a dinosaur. I was quite shy back then, but something about that costume made me feel safe. In my younger days, I used to actually dance on my hind legs when my assistant brought out my costumes, bow-ties, and t-shirts.

Budget …what budget? You can’t put a price tag on fashion, my friends. There does, however, seem to be some discrepancy in our house about my wardrobe budget ... My papa is quite frugal and my assistant, well, not so much! My assistant and I  go for the don’t ask, don’t tell philosophy when it comes to my clothes.
