Good mawnin’, TRT!

Coffee is up! And so is hot chocolate. Let’s have Belgian waffles with all kinds of goodies to go on top. I bet Hack would love to make some kind of breakfast meat.

I am wondering how Jeff’s new pup Beau is liking his new home? We all know that Jeff is a good daddy, and all the other doggies will Br good to him.

Brrrrrr it’s 25 right now, and climbing to 55. Getting ready for church in a minute. This afternoon I may visit a friend in the hospital, and this evening I have a book discussion with college friends.

Make it a groovy day today. I hope to hear from Rick and Perry

Lots of love and hugs and peace to everyone!

I'm here! Good morning Cath! Had a busy couple days off working on the finish trim for that stair railing and hall project. I'd say it is 90% done. Another day of fiddly stuff and I can call it done.

Big muffins and cinnimon rolls today with a large coffee, help yourself, my wife bought the big pack & I gotta get through them.

A BIG GOOD MORNING Cath, and a fabulously wonderful, and HAPPY SUNDAY TO ALL! 😁

Yesterday was fridgit, especially with the winds......but today is already 30, and heading to 45F.

Able to sleep in till 7:30 this morning, and coffee was waiting for us. hack was up ALL NIGHT with His D n D friends online, so I know he'll be going out for the day any minute now.

Got a Ham Croquette dinner to schlep together......very time consuming. so shain't be venturing afield too far. The Sams will be joining us this afternoon and for dinner, so there'll be games involved.

Had my soft boiled eggs yesterday.....I'm good on them for a while, but perhaps some Buttermilk flap jacks may find their way to the tummy before long. And of course Cath there'll be Maple sausages to go on the TRT Training Table as well.

Peace and Double stuff Oreos to All,
Hack

Immensely pleasing to see your smiling face at the Training Table this morning Rick!
With the past couple days seeing record low attendance round our table I was beginning to think my questionable sense of humor may have been the reason..... NAH! :unsure: :sneaky:

'Projects' will eat up time, that's for sure.......just dragging my feet before I dive into them around here myself. Don't know what they are yet, but sure they exist.:ROFLMAO:

There are always projects Hack. The problem is finding fun ones. The silver lining for me is that my wife is a keeper and does all the painting. I hate painting more than some people hate snakes. Don't get me wrong, I am a good painter but I would rather cut off a limb than pick up a paint brush.

Good morning ,

it is chilly here. 35 going to get mid 60’s for the high.
Have someone coming over to take a look at a bike that became yard art over the years. It’s junk but if they want it they can take it.
Not sure of our plans for the day yet, Kristine is still sleeping. I was going to sleep in but have always been a morning person.
Have a good Sunday

Morning all,

First nite with Beau the Great Mountainees Doodle ,, started out noisy when his first night/time without his 11 little mates , in his crate. Think it was only 30-45 minutes of barking/bellyaching,, par for the course with pups.
So far 100% batting average on potty duty ,,
Luckily the pack goes outside fairly often, so he will get plenty of opportunities to figger out the routine.

Along with getting used to his new house/digs,,, he is scoring bonus points for doing a biggie in my head for dog stuff,,, lays at my feet.

Other dogs were mostly cool with a newb here,,, but they did give me a “hey, this ain’t one of those long dogs you bring here short term like before 🤔🤷🏻‍♂️”.
Max , the long hair long dog is prob the biggest cold shoulder of the pack,, he was not cool with a new dawg here,, but has gotten less snarky this far. Think the biggest part is that Max is REALLY bonded to me and thinks he is my favorite ( kinda sorta true,, but they all are, don’t tell him that🤫) Hence a bit of coldness/jealousy.

Have not checked in with Sis as to how her night went with Rumor, her new gal pup.

On to the day,. And imagine I will have to be the good dad and spend time with the pup , and let the bonding and assimilation blossom.

Jen's a stickler when it comes to 'dog breeds' since her 'grooming' days dealing with customers telling her what breed their dogs were ......and I love to rub THAT! 😁

And while nothing against mixed breed mutts,, I was not keen of “designer” dogs,,, mix matching breeds for a strictly a cute look aspect. The breeding for specific dogs /needs back when,, hunting/protection etc., I get. Even the different coat types of Doxies were “created” for specific jobs in “Badger Hunting”. One( long coat I believe ) was to sniff/find,, wire coat was the “muscle” after the regular/short coat went in da badger whole to get the critter ( don’t quote me , but I think I’m kinda close to what coat variety was bred for what job)
But then again,, the first domestic dogs were from 🤷🏻‍♂️ heritage,,
Mostly/only since since Sis had a Pyrdoodle , and now a GMD from the same breeder and got to know the dog/“breed” of hers,, was the reason I folded on getting one 🤷🏻‍♂️.

We've come close in the past with the 'dog crazy' moniker Jeff ourselves...,.7 rescues turning Family members at once. Only got 3 now, and it feels 'wanting'. First time a GD pops up, we're THERE! 1 GD=several other types. 😁 Although Chloe appears to be a 'mini' Dane at about [email protected] 1 1'2 years old, compared to a standard GD that may be almost twice that.

Sure when Chole stands up and hugs me she looks 'down on me'......but a normal size one can just stand there on all 4's and pretty much do the same thing.
We 'rescued' Her because the previous owner was an 'apartment dweller' and kept her in a crate during the day while she was at work.....and pretty sure THAT stunted her. :(

NOW......
