Everything Is 'Spacial' In Its Own Way

Ruby Two Shoes

This girl was one of the sweetest I have ever had the pleasure of loving. Ruby belonged to my daughter, son-in-law and little guy. We will miss our grand Greyhound. She is at the Rainbow Bridge now. Sad smile

My most heart felt sympathies go out to my oldest Daughter and her family as they have lost such a beautiful, gentle girl today. (tons of hugs to you guys!) She will be greatly missed.  Run free Ruby, without pain and may you have every large, fluffy stuffy at your feet that your heart desires. We love you. Always in our hearts.

There is always a lot to do and see when we go to this Festival! We have a great time. Even more interesting are the people who attend. My own family along with others are among the ‘interesting’ looking folks.




Tis the King himself out and about with the commoners.



Odd Character who popped in and out of our day the entire time we were there.




Little guy busy striking a deal with the local Blacksmiths.



The Father & Son catapult team working out a master plan to bring down yonder castle! 



A local Celeb doing his job. Meet Angus.



Angus has quite a following including Little Guy.



The Queen makes an appearance!


And what the heck is going on here?




Whew!!!!  And whalah… a new belly dancer is born! Smile


Annnnnddd she’s a lot braver than I am, then again she is also nearly 25 years younger. Lookin’ good. I’m guessing she won’t be wearing it to any parent/teacher conferences, but excellent for the Ren. Fest!Winking smile


AND some other interesting people!






What kind of hat is that? LIttle Guy experiments… he totally decided against it.

It was a fun day, lots of good food, and “Huzahs, lots of $20.00 for the King.”

This is a site put into motion by an old friend of mine. She began the ‘Celebrating Greyhound’ magazine back in the day. I have contributed to the site myself and just came across it again. Filled with information, knowledge and inspiration it is worth a visit.

Hi Marcia! Keep it going…I hope all is well with you and yours. Hugs to you!

Fidget decided to force his way into my lap, figured I’d been on my computer long enough. After being proud of himself he looked over at my laptop only to find the laptop was not real happy about being replaced by a kitty.

He stared back at those Owl eyes looking at him for sometime, before dozing off. But I have to wonder just a little bit about the inner workings of his mind while he was staring at the screen.

This is how Mandy has decided she likes riding in our camper. This started recently. Matter of fact, it started on the way home from our last camping trip.



I don’t necessarily feel this is the safest way for her to ride and am not even sure why she suddenly decided to do it as she has soft dog beds, yes more than one, strewn about the aisle of the camper to lay on.

But if she is happy, I am happy.

Fun Stuff

Black and White Tights Dance

My Dad sent this to me via email and it was pretty cute. Thought I’d share it. Kind of fun! Have a great weekend!

Cool Cake

A co-worker of mine mentioned a Cup Cake shop in town that had gluten free cup cakes. Matter of fact, for fans of Cup Cake Wars on the Food Channel, these women actually won their challenge on the show doing gluten free cup cakes.  So, being that I am a Celiac we went on over to this shop and had a couple of scrumptious cup cakes.  I should have taken photos of those, but we ate them so quickly it didn’t occur to me.

However this was one of the cakes they had displayed there and I don’t think it was gluten free as they sell regular cup cakes and cakes there as well.

This is a Nightmare Before Christmas Cake.  Very cool!
