A few of MY favorite posts:

I partially started this blog for myself but also for other people to read. Then Mom moved to Charlotte and it's kind of became a window into our world back in Tennessee for her. She's missing out on our adventures (or the opportunity to go with us) being in Charlotte and this way, she can still be somewhat of a part of it.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't care whether people enjoyed reading my blog b/c I DO care. I want this to be a fun place to visit. I would like to be one of those bloggers that has something witty, catchy or interesting to write every day about to BRING those people in, but I don't. I have my moments from time to time but most of my stuff has turned out to be kid/family trip oriented more than anything and while that isn't exactly a problem, it doesn't make for interesting reading for people outside the family.

Oh well, I'm continuing on. I've enjoyed these last two years blogging. I've enjoyed the friends I've met along the way through their blogs and I hope to "meet" many more. I'm going to try and be more consistent and write more often.......I'm going to get my 20+ drafts actually finished and published and I'm going to stop worrying about how they "sound". I'm going to kick my OCD in the tail and tell it to go on, let me blog about whatever pops into my head and not worry about it not fitting a "theme".

If you're not a follower or subscriber yet and you actually enjoy my rambling, then please, by all means, click that follower button on the right or enter your email to subscribe so you'll get notified when I post and if you know someone that may enjoy, send them my way. The more the merrier! (That's how I've found a lot of the blogs I follow, by reading someones blog and they link to someone else.) Comment too! It's nice chatting. :-D

And b/c I can't leave a post picture less, I'm including these 3 funnies b/c they each kinda fit my life. :-D

Happy Blogging!


  1. Happy Blogiversary!!!!! I should check my stats. I never look at that LOL! I bet it's interesting. The comments do count your replies. I'm enjoying reading your blog. :D Looking forward to your drafts being posted. Perfectionism is hard to let go but you can do it! I'm perfectionist too btw.

    1. Thanks! :-D You should check them! It's pretty fascinating. I think so anyway LOL I'm glad you're enjoying it! And perfectionism IS hard to let go, ugh....soooo hard but I'm working on it. :-)

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK.

------------------------------------------------------------------------ FAWN TO FAWN OR BRINDLE ONLY
Pedigrees of FAWN or BRINDLED Danes should not carry HARLEQUIN, BLACK or BLUE upon them -------------------------------------------…
