Birthday Sideshow


Happy Birthday, Marg! Thanks for all you do for animals and their peeps! You definitely have a heart of gold!

Guess what? Today is also my assistant's birthday! And because this is a BIG birthday (heck, they are ALL big at her age), I decided to let her share a few pictures from her "adventure" last week.

  
While I was stuck at home, doing this ...


She and my sissy were doing this ...


and seeing this ...


and this ...


That's right, they abandoned me in the the boring Midwest ...


 while they lived up in beautiful Arizona.


What's missing in this picture - ME! 


Now, if you look closely (middle on the left) the crazy lady waving her arms in the air is my assistant overcoming her fear of heights. All of a sudden, she's a mountain climber ...


Not impressed ...wake me when this sideshow is over.

  26. It wasn't very nice of your mom to leave you behind, but since it was her birthday, we'll give her a pass. Besides, it looks like it was really dusty and not much fun to walk in when you're low to the ground!

    Happy birthday, Pip's Mom!!
