Oh Mercy Mercy me

There's a new girl in town and she's wreaking havoc.

Meet Mercy....

A cute bundle that is about the size of Little Bug and she's only 4 months old. She's also full of energy and play -- and fearless. Unfortunately for her, the other 3 here have no interest in her antics. I thought for sure Bug would be right in there playing with her, but no, she stays away and when Mercy comes near, Bug yells at her. Hanz? well, he just doesn't have time for this crap and is really out of joint. I think he wishes I had rehomed him a long time ago because he's about done with this fostering thing. And then there's Otis. If Otis didn't have his basket muzzle on, he'd have eaten her by now. Of course, he's the one that she wants to play with most and she's just not paying attention to his signals. 

The dog world is interesting to watch in general, then bring a feisty, energetic, barky, happy, bouncy puppy into the pack and there's chaos and stress. But today is better than yesterday and it's actually quiet right now....hmmmm...I bet that means she's into something that she's not supposed to be....she's already had some sock fun....gotta go! 

Have a great day!!

Miniature Schnauzer Nick (aka The Nickster)

Nick is staying with me for a few days while his mom, Sue, goes traipsing around, garden about her gardening trials and tribulations here. 

He's a very good boy but feeling a bit out of his element. Right before this shot, I'm sure he was saying, "Bug and Hanz why oh why are you smelling my ears?" He tolerated it well and then they were on their way. He wasn't so excited about having a camera in his face either, hence, a slightly blurred photo...after about 30 others taken first!! LOL

Have a great day!!!

Bike Week - Laconia, NH

Well, the end of bike week, the beginning and middle was full of rain so I'm glad we planned only for the last weekend there. What a gorgeous weekend it was. We left CT shortly after the rain stopped. Here's me on Friday, posing with our we waited in Chicopee, MA for our friend Melinda to come get us and bring us to the gathering point with everyone else. (I took the wrong exit on the way there--ooops!)

We had a great time. Little time was actually spent at the 'event' and lots of time was spent riding the area, including the Kancamagus Highway. It's been a long time since riding it, and back then I was a passenger. This time I got to experience the curves and swerves with my own wheels under me. I was very thankful that traffic was light, it made it more enjoyable.

One rider of the group, a pretty cool 63 year old that I just met before the ride, sported his custom bike...

Ten of us met up to go. Spending a weekend with the group was fun and easy.

I have to give a shout out to Suzy at GeorgiaPeachez...she spent the weekend in Richmond, VA, at the Vintage Home Market selling her accumulated vintage treasures. Check it out, she had some good loot! It certainly would have been nice to check out in person -- but dangerous!

I hope you all had a great weekend, too!

Heeere Kitty Kitty

Heyyyyy!! didja miss me? I kinda fell off the bloggin' train there for awhile. Due to computer issues, (now I'm having iphoto issues) phone issues, going to bed 2+ hours earlier everyday and filling boxes with stuff stuff stuff for my tag sale...but I'm back to sharing -- like this white Persian. It's HUGE! I found it at a tag sale and had to have her. I had Bug strike a pose with her so you can see the difference. Mind you, Buggy Boo is a petite girl at 11 pounds but you get the idea. It's kind of weird with it's scary creepy eyes (which is why I like it) and awesome at the same time. I'm going to let it visit for awhile but then it might end up on a selling venue.

I also put it out in the yard, but I'm afraid someone will steal it because it's so COOL.

I bet you wish you had a big ass cat to sit in your garden, too. LOL

On other notes -- I've been picking up some vintage sewing machines for Renato the sewing machine guy. It's fun because I get to touch them and buy them and ogle them and not have to store them. Win for him, win for me. Photos to come once I gather them together.

I hope you've all been well and enjoying the Spring season, we've seen lots of rain, it's raining now even, and if it wasn't raining it was cold but then it got hot hot hot! New England weather, why are we surprised each year?

Have a great day!!
