  5. Love your post, but had to stop by because of your comment.,, Is my Puppy that amusing? I mean, I guess she is or I wouldn't be posting her. Actually, tonight my husband and I were laughing at her - sorry - because of her, as she lay down to devour some leftovers he was dishing out. He said, "D'ya think all Saint Bernards lie down to eat?" and I had to say, "Dunno, but she has her own mind."

    I must say, now when she sees me coming with the camera, she lies down automatically. If you see any posts with her sitting up, they were done early on ;-0 Really!

    Still love your theme, and love your blog - carry on!

  6. I like the idea of him being shipwrecked.
    Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. I was at Children's Hospital with my son since Monday. Glad to be back reading your A to Z posts.
