THANKS TO OUR FRIENDS PART 2

I, Sweet William The Scot, told you I got two envelopes last week.  Well the second envelope was from my buddy Oz.  I call him Oz The Great and Powerful because he is so knowledgable.
Why his peep goes to all those conventions and finds out about new products that are good for us and helps with our lives.
 
Now Oz wanted to tell me about Lindy & Company Gourmet Pet Treats.
Why Lindy is right here in my state of Ohio.
To be exact 54 miles up Interstate 75 from my home.  Well if my Lee could drive like she use to before her Vestibular attack and her inner ear gives her vertigo attacks we could hop in the car and take you there.
But since we can't we still want to tell you Lindy & Company was created by Daybreak, a nonprofit in Dayton Ohio, that provides shelter, housing, and support for youth who have no place to call home. Why we know exactly where they are on Wayne Street Dayton's historic South Park neighborhood,  which is on the National Register of Historic Places, because Lee had a great aunt who lived on that street.
We know that dogs and cats aren't the only ones being kicked out of their homes to live on the streets or in shelters.
Did you know that every year in the U.S. an estimated 550,000 kids face the same fate?
Well Lindy gives them jobs.
Their treats run from $5.00 to $8.95.
I got a bag of Apples & Cheese Please Treats.
Now for the taste test.

 
Oh I am a BIG FAN of these treats.
They have cat treats also.
Now wasn't Oz smart in telling me about Lindy. 
Yum Yum
I also got another wonderful card from Lassiter and Benjamin.  Thank You
No I don't have a bandage on my leg but I sure had one sore bum ~ kind of kept a guy from sitting down.
I am off antibiotics as of last Friday and Lee keeps looking for signs of swelling, so far I am definitely on the mend and I  go back to the vet on June 8th.
Thank You everybody who said a prayer for me. 
 
Thanks for being a  friend

THANKS TO OUR FRIENDS

We got two envelopes, yes two. 
The first one to come was from Stella Rose, Maggie Mae and Gussie.
Now I want to thank my friends, The Three Little Pugs, why they sent me a St. Francis dog medal to watch over me.  They must have known that I had given mine away to an old old doggie friend.
Yes I am wearing it on my collar now.
I am getting better each day.
My swelling has gone down.  I have ran the backyard and barked at a deer.
I have went up and licked the hand of the little two year old next door.
Unfortunately the little boy, who was one of our reader students, who hurt me I have not made up with.  He stopped every day for over a week and now stops sporadically.  I hide when I hear him.
The St. Francis medal is so pretty.
Lee has not forced me to see the boy.  She says it has to be my decision that I am safe.
Unfortunately he needs me to forgive him, I was one of his few friends. 
I have another week to take antibiotics.  They are making my fur look dull and shabby.
 
Do I look like the card in the center?
Princess Leah thinks I look like the doggie.  I think so also.
I got four nice cards from Princess Leah, Amber Deweenie, Bentley
and I got to thank Sully whose card was just the darnest, that put my Lee into a giggle fit when it went off in the middle of the night.  We are going to show it to you on June 2nd the date Sarge has set for  Recruit A Pal.

 Now I will show you what was in the second envelope that came from my friend Oz The Terrier next week.
 
Now don't forget The Barkers are playing their first game tomorrow.
We will be at Murphy and Stanley's Blog and Easy's Blog.
I hope the opposing team remembers I wear glasses.

 
Thanks for being a  friend

The Steeple & Update On My Wills

I know all of you were praying as was I for a great checkup with good news.
Sweet William has healed with nice pink skin on the outside but he has and infection which the ClinzGard Barrier Gel, a sustained release antibiotic did not kill..
Now he is on fourteen days of oral Clindamycin.
Clindamycin is used to treat serious infections caused by bacteria.
His gland has moved because of scar tissue to the seven o'clock position which means he will need to be expressed from the inside.  But if the antibiotic wipes out the infection the vet does not believe Sweet William will need surgery.
I have a list of signs to look out for and if they occur I have to get him to the vet immediately but if the swelling goes down and the antibiotic does its work, I don't have to take him back for a month.

We  have a funny side occurrence, well if anything about this accident can be funny,  my Wills now wags his tail up and down not sideways and I swear he grins when he does. 

We noticed that it was the 75th anniversary of United Dairy, so since Wills was such a good boy at the vet I treated him to a dip of vanilla ice cream for 75cents.  Wills did not eat all of his ice cream or the treat stuck in the ice cream so I know he is not feeling well.

ON WITH OUR POST

Do you remember this as a child?

Here's the church, and here's the steeple
Open the door and see all the people.
Here's the parson going upstairs,
And here he is saying his prayers.


HERE is the church (put your hands together)
and :HERE is the steeple (point your pointing fingers straight up to make a "steeple")
 then,: OPEN the doors (open your thumbs)
 and :LET OUT the people (wiggle your entwined fingertips so that it looks like people exiting a church)

Children love this nursery rhyme as it combines lyrics and words with actions
It was probably steeped in English history where the architecture of churches and its steeple dominated the skyline of all towns.

We took these pictures before Sweet William The Scot got hurt.

Well here is the door!

Well here is the steeple!

Well open the doors!

The church is gone!  Where did the church go!
I am so confused!
The church and the people are gone!
I, Sweet William The Scot, guess someone beamed them up!
Bawheheeee

The Walnut Hills Presbyterian Church's impressive Gothic Tower still stands.  In 1819,
 Rev. James Kemper helped to establish the First Presbyterian Church of Walnut Hills. The remaining tower of the church still exists today.
It is alleged that but for the presence of Mr. Kemper and his family in our town and ready to begin building a church, and his example of rallying people to take care of the sick, wounded, weary and distraught army of St. Clair, most of the people coming to Ohio would have stampeded south.  He was held in high esteem among Native Americans for his bravery.

Nudie Nudie Nudie and Update on my Wills

Update ~ My Wills is getting better and on Friday the vet will decide if he needs surgery to remove the gland that was badly hurt.  Wills is off of pain pills but still has antibiotics.  He has wagged his tail some.  He has been very receptive to my treating his wounds.

Now on with news from our Nati City.
This happened on April 12th ~ before I was hurt.

Nudie Nudie Nudie I, Sweet William The Scot, saw a Nudie!
I was screaming look Lee look.  Well Lee looked and the car stopped.
See we in Cincinnati were told on the news that Photographer, Harvey Drouillard, who has made his name taking pictures of nude models in front of well-known public landmarks across the country, had made Cincinnati his next stop.
Yep Great American Ball Park on Opening Day.
Here is a link to the funny cartoon that ran in our paper.
http://www.wcpo.com/news/opinion/harvey-drouillard-and-his-nude-models-are-about-to-become-part-of-our-opening-day-scene-so-relax

Look Out Boston you are next!
We saw the nudie in this very spot.
 
Drouillard said “Once I found out all the history -- like the Underground Railroad, as soon as you crossed the Ohio River you were free -- the whole city is about freedom and expression,” he said. “So I was like, ‘There’s no way I’m skipping Cincinnati."
Yep the nudie went up these steps.

Drouillard initially recruited volunteers via an ad on Craigslist.
He has also recruited a “getaway driver,” as well as people on the ground who have already taken photographs of the city for planning purposes.
For baring it all, volunteer models got an 8x10 photo, food and beverages courtesy of Goodfellas Pizzeria and “an adrenaline buzz they will never forget,”  Drouillard said.

Why do I have to put my bum where the nudie was?
I don't have my scarf on, OH NO I am a nudie!

He is coming back in July for a huge group shot right in the center of my city.
He didn’t know about the conservative nature of Cincinnati.
So much dark history, if you will, happened specifically in Cincinnati. A lot of the obscenity laws in the entire country are based on things that happened in Cincinnati.
Robert Mapplethorpe and Larry Flynt had contentious court battles here.

If you want to see the nudie we saw well the link above will show her half way down the page fourth row on the left.
 
She was at the Elsinore Arch (also known as Elsinore Tower) a registered historic structure in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Constructed in 1883 for the Cincinnati Water Works. It's said to be inspired by the Elsinore Castle (Kronborg) featured in Hamlet.

"He said the photos are not meant to be vulgar, it's not meant to be obscene or pornographic. It's really meant to be about the art. I hope people aren't shocked, you know. If you see us and you don't want to be in the shot, just go the other way."

Well I, Sweet William The Scot, went the other way with one eye open till they left.

My Sweet Wills

Several of you got in contact and asked why I, Lee, had not put up a picture with my post last week.
Some of you already know the answer.
My camera is full of pictures of our Nati City and a very strange happening but my heart was not in a place to look at them.
 
On April 17th in the evening my Wills got hurt.
Skip to bottom if you are squeamish.
I did not want to bring it to the forefront and I wanted the Mayorz Marathon to run as my post as I was committed to doing.
Then when a blogger had a dummy spit directed at us well which I thought was only toward us (turns out two others also) I was not going to play the poors us woos me card.

Bottom line I don't know if Sweet William The Scot will need surgery.
If he does I have been informed it will not be a great outcome.
His puncture wounds, abrasions and lacerations have been debrided.  Some where injected with ClinzGard Barrier Gel which is a sustained release of clindamycin over 7-10 days.  Some have surgical glue on them and others are open.
Two of his favorite children, one from our past reader program, came to play with him.
Sweet William has always loved kids and I think somewhere in him is a little boy.
They truly did not know what they could do, nor did I.  It looked like a simple blue plastic water gun.
Oh they come in yellow and orange I have found out $19.95.  Well they are these air guns but you can put pee gravel dirt any crap in them that fits.  Will got peppered at close range.  Will is hurt in his private soft tissue area and one of his anal glands took a direct shot and tore it.
Will is in a lot of pain even with taking Deramaxx a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain med.
Will is frightened of everybody but me at the present.

Do You Ever Think About Taking A Side

If the Pilgrims had not broken away from England how would the world look?
If the American Revolution had not taken place would we be under a monarchy?
If the North and South had not divided where would America be?
How would Europe look had World War I not taken place?
Or if World War II had not happened and England stood alone would all of Europe have become a dictatorship?
Censorship now there is a debate.
Yes we all have our blogs.  On your blog do you allow freedom of speech?
I am on the other side of the Susie and Sidebite issue. As a blogger I don't like to be threaten and they said "if he ever finds out who left a negative comment" (well what does that imply?) and
"OH and comments are turned off, cause we just don't care what you have to say now, and we are saving you the effort to unfriend us! Oh wait, many of our followers didn't come by anyways!. "
Think about that all 153 members ... you didn't come by! 
They actually listed who they liked I believe nine names, were you listed??
Sweet William The Scot left them their first comment on Saturday.
But we got very negative feedback along with other bloggers in e-mails.
We had not left them enough comments even though since Lee was in the hospital we have only gotten three comments from them.
So I took a stand dropped out of their blog and after several more negative e-mails blocked them from my blog and yahoo account. 
Yep Lee is now aka YOU SHIT!
Guess I had better get my poop scooper out to use on Lee.
I have never blocked a comment on my blog nor have I deleted comments I did not particularly like other than advertisements.
I was Susie and Sidebites second follower and did a major part of their photoshopping prior to Lee almost dying last fall.  I called them my bestest friend and now that is a common term around Blogville just like 87.
Please when you read a post is that blog really saying something positive and maybe start questioning before leaving a comment.
We were simply not going to say a word and go on till Oreo Cookie Jar ran a one
sided post and deleted our comments.
And for those of you who read my comment which was up for about one hour, well loved your e-mails.  The dummy spit phase made us smile again.  Several said they had to rethink their comments that they left Oreo.   One said I am one of those "who never comments" at their blog.
One said maybe he is right to leave Blogville.
Yes we got wonderful e-mail.
If you talk behind someone's back it is bound to come out.
Respectful yes we should be Respectful of one another.
Respectfully
Sweet William The Scot & Lee
Psss ~ Yes comments are on this is an open dialogue.

Mayorz Marathon Mile 16

I, Rockin Wills, got to get to the
 Mayorz Marathon Remote!
 This is Blogville's one and only Non Serious Radio Station Howl at 469.5.
We are doing a live remote today covering the Marathon.
I'm your DJ Rockin Wills The Music Professor on the scene.
 If you want to come on down the Howl is at the corners of Heart Break Hill and Runners Trots Drive.
Yep this is Mile 16 for these runners.  It is the you, yourself with the mile.  Called the Isolation mile. 
We will be seeing the runners thinning out now.
Your DJ was in a race once. Within minutes after the race started I was the last of the runners. It was down right embarrassing. That fat cat Marty was in front of me, second to last, was taunting me. He said, “Hey dog, how does it feel to be last?” I replied: “Do you want to know?” and I dropped out.
Yep I embarrassed that cat.  No one plays this DJ for a fool.
Think I will play a song to raise up the runners spirits because that old Despair Mile 19 will be hitting them soon.
The first of the runners are coming into the square.
video
  After this mile these runners are no longer Glucosed up.  
Oh I feel sorry for those Pupsters that still have their junk if their body glide is gone.
They will be lucky if they can still feel their junk after this tough marathon.
If they have not been neutered they will have wished they were.
And those kittenestes why those manicures and pedicures are going to be ruined.
Their nails are going to turn black and maybe fall off.
(click for full screen) 
The center of the pack has reached the square.
Cheer those runners on.  Ring those cow bells! 
  HOWL HOWL

Ahead they have
Despair around mile 19!  Why even their teeth will hurt!
Then they will HIT THE WALL around mile 22!  They will be crying they have never been so tired!
They got to dig dig dig deep!
If they make it to mile 23 it will be Affirmation!
Elation mile 26 right before they collapse.

Do you get why at the start the runners have a Blogville Police car behind?
Why that's to make them keep running so they get .... Tired!
Then
Do you know why the Cop car goes ahead?
Why by running behind the car they get .... Exhausted!
And they say it is for your protection!!!!!
Yes your DJ Rockin Wills is giving it to you straight.

It looks like the last runners are going through now! 
Cheer those runners on ~ Ring those cow bells.  HOWL
Last runners are through.
For continuous live coverage of this grueling first ever Mayorz Marathon I am turning the mike over to Blogvilles one and only Taffy, where from her vantage point she is seeing the first of the runners coming through.  Take it away Taffy.
Well that's it from the HOWL's live remote.  Till next time I'm your DJ Rockin Wills saying RUN
Keep Howling  
"Do what you want, dig what you do, 'cause that's what life is all about"
