BIRTHDAY PARTY!

Yesterday, our family celebrated our son-in-law Kurt's birthday at our house. He and our daughter Bethany, our RV travelers, are here for an extended stay, and boy, are we glad! We had a cookout with plenty of food, and we had a wonderful time together. 

Here are a few photos:

WHAT? NO BARKING??

As doxie lovers and owners already know, dachshunds bark at just about anything--and it's nearly impossible to shush them! 

That's why this cartoon caught my eye, because very few dachshunds refrain from barking out of fear. They're go getters, brash, and take on other animals twice their size! But they run from the vacuum cleaner. Go figure.

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em--even their extremely loud bark.

BACK TO SCHOOL ALREADY??

Our county schools here in Georgia started today, and although our grandchildren are homeschooled, they also started today. The school program our daughter teaches with is Classical Conversations, a great, well-rounded curriculum--the kiddos have learned so much!

Does it seem that schools start earlier and earlier each fall? That's because they have more breaks and teacher work days during the year, thus making it last longer.

They meet once a week with the area group; our daughter teaches the new material to older homeschoolers and parents, who then work on mastering it at home for the week. May it be a great year for all concerned!

“A dog just has to accept humans the way they are—they’ll never fully understand things that we dogs know instinctively!”—Sarge

Sarge the doxie travels out west to Arizona with his doxie pal Duke (and a couple of his humans, of course), sightseeing along the way in an RV. He even encounters an Elvis impersonator in Memphis!

Affectionately written by Sarge in his very own entertaining doxie style, Dachshunds Forever reveals his clever wit, keen intelligence, and refreshing perspective on life.

Another heartwarming tale of family, joy, good food, and unconditional love, Sarge’s story will bring warmth and smiles to readers of all ages.

CELEBRATION!

Our daughter Bethany and SIL Kurt arrived here recently in their RV for an extended stay! We hadn't all been together since Thanksgiving 2016, so we're all ecstatic about being together. 

We celebrated their sixteenth wedding anniversary in style (adults only - the grands were visiting their other grandparents in NC) by going to "the" upscale Italian restaurant in our area. It was a wonderful time of fellowship, family, food, and fun (known as "the 4 Fs," coined by Tim LeHaye). Below are photos of each couple:
