This, That, and the Other

Many of you have heard by now about the exotic animals released in Zanesville, Ohio. Well, that's about an hour from my house. I found these pics at and they made me cry. WARNING - before you go see these pictures they are graphic.

And I find myself in a quandary. I have never been an advocate for more government. And believe people should use common sense. But, after seeing the destruction to these amazing animals I wonder if there shouldn't be more laws in Ohio to prevent this from ever happening again. It's a shame they had to be killed and I trust Jack Hanna when he says nothing else could have been done. But, there are just no words when you look at the pictures.  

Many of you commented to DD's dental issues. After her visit with the periodontist and hearing her choices - Courtney has decided to not have anything done at the moment. The tooth isn't bothering her and the doctor really doesn't have high hopes to fix it. Lots of money changing hands but no real solution.

Changing subjects here so fast someone might get whiplash!

I love my mailman. She brought me a package from Canada! What goodies I received.

Duct Tape - I promise to never use it again at Christmas!

Pretty Packages!

Beautiful stitching and stash!

And she had no crow patterns? Wowsers!

My murder of crows grows!
Thank you Jayne! I now have 6 more crows making friends. They fit in perfectly! Aren't surprise packages the bomb?

And I would love to say thank you to those of you who told me how to fix my comment problem. Of course, I published your comments before fixing the issue and couldn't tell you thank you in an email. Figures! ;0) But, I have had comments since and your solution works wonderfully! Thanks again!

Winter Sheep is coming along nicely. I might have it complete yet tonight. Cross your fingers for me! lol Then on to the Cardinals.

We are rushing headlong into the weekend. Here's to splendid fall activities commencing!
