Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments?

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post.

* I have a new blog for the rescue group. It's still in the beginning stages, but if you would visit, blogroll it, spread the word, and just generally help me pimp out the dawgz, I would be forever in your debt!

* Our annual Gator Walk for March of Dimes is in November. We do this every year in honor of Dysfunctional Dad's firtborn son, Baby JW, who died from complications of prematurity. So, it's fundraising time! For the next 2 months I will be annoying you with requests for donations to this wonderful cause. (and if anyone can teach me how to make a 'sticky' on the bottom of each post during this time....that would ROCK.)

* If I'm blogging from home, there is a dog in my lap, always. My sweet old girl, Suzie, comes tottering up as soon as I sit down in front of the computer. She puts her front paws on the chair and just looks at me until I pick her up. She doesn't whine or anything, she just looks at me. I pick her up, and she immediately falls asleep in my lap. And there she stays until I get up. She is fourteen years old and those of you who have been reading here for a while may remember that she was a foster who I couldn't let go of. She's such a sweet, sweet thing.

* I am coming up on my 200th post, and my one year blogiversary! What shall I do? I need to plan something exciting......

* Spa Day is tomorrow. Friends, I am so excited! A day for me. Lovely!

* My puppy picture did not win the contest I entered, and I am so offended. The winners were not nearly as cute as my picture is! As if.

* I am so glad Autumn is nearing. Sure, it'll still be hot here until late October. But I love the fall festivals, fall decorations, and everything that is Autumn. Love it!

* I got 47 comments on my last post and I cannot describe how much that THRILLS me. It's mind-blowing to know that 47 people read my disjointed thoughts and are kind enough to leave me their thoughts in return! I truly appreciate you all! xoxo

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Yes, depression is sadly very common. If only everyone got the help they needed. If only.

OMG that pic is so cute! And I love hot dog dogs (that's what we call them). I work for a rescue too, and the one day we received a request for a douche-hound. Took them a while to figure out they wanted a dachshund!

You can see pics of my pup at

Fall is my fav time of the year. Crisp cool autumn nights, but it keeps staying hotter here in the south later every year and I am disgusted with hot summer weather right now. 95 degrees is not pleasant, c'mon, it needs to get cooler soon.

47 posts my goodness, that's a lot. But you are a good read.

Your Susie reminds me of our doxie from my childhood. If anyone sat down, and crossed their legs (making a hole with their ankle over their knee) Bridget would poke her head thru, arch her back and push up until she had landed in your lap. A lot of work on her part, but hilarious to watch. I love doxies!

Tammie said...

Autumn is a great time of year. I just wish we could hop right into spring after fall. There's something downright creepy about the end of February.

Jo-Jo said...

200th blog?! How exciting! Try a give away! (snicker) We all love those!

Casey's trio said...

You had me at "spa day!" Hope it was divine:)

Lauren said...

47? You rock!

Chel said...

We support the MOD, too. Our Eliza was a preemie, so we're very grateful for all MOD does.

And 47? Seriously. I'm lucky if I get 47 comments a month. Sheesh.
