Naughty or Nice

Were you Naughty or Nice?
Did you do the Snowflake Shake?
Did you Whack a Penguin? 
Because you sure did something to drive old Kris Kringle to drink!
Yes all you dogs out there Kris Kringle does not want those cookies and milk ~ he wants the booze.
You had better watch out because when Kris Kringle gets upset we get a whole lot of albino brain jiggers dumped on us.
Yep they are coming down!

Another Nati City Christmas Tradition

I have showed you many Christmas traditions in Nati City but I have never shown you the center of my city at Christmas.

Tyler Davidson Fountain ~The Genius of Water.  
It sits right in the center of my city.
It is regarded as the city's symbol and one of the area's most visited attractions.  It was dedicated in 1871 and is the centerpiece of my city.
The 43 foot tall fountain is cast in bronze and sits on a green granite base.
The inscription "To the People of Cincinnati" appears on its base.
At Christmas the square holds a giant cedar tree like Rockefeller Center.  Nati City has a big lighting ceremony.
Hi, see me here?
Behind the cedar we have an ice rink set up where you can skate everyday and into the night with the gorgeous tree lights.
The building behind the tree is where my Lee worked for years on the 45th floor and in the lobby stands this tree. 
The lighting is very funny because of a glass ceiling that goes up two stories till the upper floors in the building start.  This is where Santa comes.  He is suppose to be here at noon so I get my picture taken with Santa. I'm first in line can you tell.  Lee wanted to get here early for me.
Where Lee ate lunch today had these gorgeous window boxes and Lee sat at this window so I could see her and I got leftovers.  I always order leftovers which was salmon today.


Well I have more Christmas photos I will show you next week.

BOO!


Is it just me or is it getting dark?

BOO!

How would you like to have this ghoul and tarantula living in your neighborhood?
The ghoul had a leash on that tarantula till someone took it, now it can roam free.
Guess I will do my potty in the next yard.

Budweiser Clydesdales

I, Sweet William The Scot, went to see the Clydesdales and hear all about this hitch from Merrimack, New Hampshire.  
This is the lightweight at 1800 pounds and last to be hitched.
A single Clydesdal hitch horse will consume as much as 20-25 quarts of feed, 40-50 pounds of hay and 30 gallons of water per day.
Merlin giving me the one eyed look.  Every time I got close to him he would hide his head.  Every time I started to walk away he would neigh.  Then finally he looked me in the eye.  He was comical.









Admiral the biggest horse on this hitch coming in at just over 2,000 pounds and muscles does he have muscles.
Look at those tails I would not want my tail tied up in a knot with a bow.  
It takes just fifty minutes to get all the horses manes and tails tied pretty. Why it takes that long for Lee and me to get ready.
The harness for these magnificent animals are over 140 pounds.  Lee could not lift one.
It takes awhile for the whole team to get hitched together and Admiral the first one to get hitched has to stand there and wait and wait for the other seven.  He has patience he never moved.
I got parked in the shade where I could see everything and watch Lee.  Because of my liver issues I am not fully vaccinated this year as those vaccinations have to go through your liver.  
I had my rabies and my titers were good for my other vaccines but I am not getting canine influenza vaccine this year so Lee is keeping me out of the spotlight as I am so social and everyone wants to pet me.

Guess Who I Met Today

Do you know who this is?
Her Mom was with her.
She cannot get up there yet!
She is looking to see what's in the back.  Bawhehehe
Maybe she wants a cold one!
Or maybe she is looking for a way down.
She has to be tied in because she does not have her manners yet!
She is Lily, the new Budweiser Clydesdale Dog out of Merrimack, New Hampshire.  She is a puppy and this is her first tour.

I, Wills, have been quite sick for along while ~ not in pain ~ but that dam surgery well the anesthesia that they gave me almost killed off my entire liver.  But finally my liver values are coming down.  I had to have a liver ultrasound and biopsy of five spots and blood drawn and tested every week then now I am every month.
Bad Vet should have never used that anesthesia on me.
Lee said goodbye to $3,000 to help me and she told me there would never be any money in my piggy again.
I am just starting to do things again.
I'll show you the Clydesdale horses next time.  One took a real liking to my Lee.

Parrot Day for Kismet

Dam that Bird, Kismet, fooled me again!  I thought he said Parrothead like fans of Jimmy Buffett, Margaritaville and I got all dressed for the party.

Happity Hippity Hoppity Easter


Our painted card 2019



I think the bunny brought the world a basket with all the wonderful flowers blooming.

Our Lilac bush is full of flowers and the butterflies are here.
          We can smell the fragrance when we open the kitchen window.
Our Spirea flowering shrubs on the hill are in full bloom.
The delicate Blue Bells are just starting to open.
And the hundred tulip bulbs that we planted are flowering finally without hobbit stems.
We have every color of tulips.

Spring has been kind to us this year with no late frost to kill the flowers.
Wishing you the kind of Easter
That touches your heart like a prayer and blesses
your life with the gift of amazing grace.
Best wishes for a joyous Easter
