Am I Back?

Hmmmm, that IS the question to ask.

I'm back posting all those drafts I started but then never hit publish. I HAVE to back post. The posts can't be months after the event occured. I don't expect anyone to go back and read them either, it's ok. Of course you CAN go back if you want to. I could even link them here to make it easier. But how far do I go back? Not really sure when I disappeared.

This seems like a good place to start: Dates are when I posted these.

Newest Remodel: New Couch ~ March. 18
Discovery Museum ~ Oct. 18
Introducing Zoe ~ Oct. 21
Fall Festival ~ Oct. 24
2nd Shopkins Swapkins Party ~ Oct. 27

And with all those back-posted, it doesn't look like I disappeared but I did haha.

So, again the question is: Am I back?

I guess kinda, sorta. At least for the time being.

I WANT to be back but we'll see how this goes. It should be easier since I got a new laptop (thanks Mom!) for Christmas. It's a lot smaller and easier to transport. Phones are awesome but they're just not meant for blogging (at least not with me behind the screen LOL)

I've still been reading everyone's blogs. Still rarely commenting tho haha. I'm apparently great at keeping up with blogs, just not so great at commenting on said blogs or being a blogger. Oops.

So, no promises that I'm back for good. Maybe only sporadically at first, especially since it's time to hibernate, so not much happens that's blog "worthy" but I'll do my best to get back in the blogging groove. (Seems like I've posted something similar to this very post. I'm a creature of habit, what can I say LOL).

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…

The Official Illustrated Standard of the Great Dane Club of America, INC. 1945
(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

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. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:
------------------------------------------------------------------------ FAWN TO FAWN OR BRINDLE ONLY
Pedigrees of FAWN or BRINDLED Danes should not carry HARLEQUIN, BLACK or BLUE upon them -------------------------------------------…
