Looking like Christmas

Been a crazy week for me.  I am sitting here on Sunday evening and prepping for the up coming week.   At least I am home this coming week, so maybe I can get out and walk.  This last week was pretty intense.  Lot going on at work and then on Thursday I flew down to Austin.  We had a company party on Friday evening.  It was a blast and great to see everyone.

I flew home early AM on Saturday.  I was up to 2:00 AM Saturday morning and then up at 5:15 AM the same morning.   I tried to sleep on the plane but that didn't happen.  After making the drive I arrived home about 10:45 AM.  Candy was cooking up biscuits and gravy for me.  I am so lucky, it was awesome!  I emptied my travel bags and we ate.

After eating I went and took a nap.  I am not a big napper but I was tired.   I slept from about noon the 2:00 PM on Saturday afternoon.  Felt great and really didn't get much done the rest of the day.

This morning I rolled out of bed at 8 AM.  It was nice out so this was the day to dig out all the Christmas decorations.   We got the tree up and I decorated the porch and put our our blow up Santa train.   Looks pretty good.  

We headed to the store and grabbed a few things so we could have a little tree decorating party tonight.   We are having Taco soup, jalapeno dip and a couple of 90 minute Dogfish heads.  Wow!

Poor Mable

My poor little Mable had an indecent this last week.  Candy took her and Pebbles out for a walk.  She went down to the meadow, but on this day we had an issue.   She came across another dog owner with a pit bull that was off leash.

The pit bull took Mable to the ground and locked on.  Keep in mind Mable weighs 10 pounds, wet at best.  The owner was able to break the dog off Mable.  Candy got his information and I am sure he got a lecture.

Everything seemed to be OK with Mable, she was a little shaken.  They walked the rest of the way home.  When getting home Candy noticed the blood and Mable was pretty much flat, she couldn't walk any further.  In looking one of the teeth drove deep into her just left of her spine.  She was bleeding badly and the area was swelling up.

She was down and out.  She din't move the next few days and had a visit to the vette for xrays.  Tonight she is moving around a little better.  Impressive considering she is 13 years old.
