Oh Happy Day!

Today is a very special day to me. It is Mr. Décor’s birthday.

Some of you are well acquainted with Mr. Décor. You know that he is a man of honor.

Visiting a grave of a friend at Arlington and telling his son about sacrifice.

It’s no secret that he is the man behind the woman who writes this blog. He often comes up with post topics and is always ready to lend a hand with DIY projects particularly if they involve lumber and chain saws.

The native American settlement at Jamestown.

But it might be a secret to some that he has a wonderful sense of humor.

If you are thinking about bringing another member into your family this holiday season please consider a shelter dog.

They are kind, loyal and perhaps may have a face only a mother could love, but love them you will.

How blessed I am!

Mrs Gunn,

Please send our wishes for a happy birthday and the best trip around the sun your Fly Boy {Man} has experienced! One day the four of us will be able to toast good times in person. :)
Thank you for suggesting people consider adopting a shelter dog. Scout was 9 months old and on his 5th home when we rescued him. We are thinking of getting another dog after the holidays. We all miss Buster.

Your Friend,
Deborah

Happy Birthday to your husband. And as for Rudi he is one lucky baby. We have 5 (yes I said 5) abandoned/abused babies. Two of them are dachshunds. They bring such joy into my life.
