We have a new member of the family. His name is Stewie and he is 1 1/2 years old. Stewie is a miniature Pinscher and probably something else but we aren't sure. He is a little darling. The cats have no idea what he is but they are being pretty tolerant so far. Here a few pics of Stewie in bed.

We ended up changing his name to Diesel.  He was with us for about 1 1/2 years.  You really have to be into  MinPins to survive one.  He was just too much for us and he went to a great new forever home with a family who can give him oodles of outdoor time and doesn't mind him bouncing off everything they own.  LOL

Sam and April are not quite sure how close or friendly to get with Stewie. Hopefully they will all become friends soon.

Today's quote is from Groucho Marx. "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend; inside of a dog it's too dark to read."

My precious grandson spent 15 minutes last week picking all the keys off of my laptop. I am typing on that laptop with half the keys still missing, correcting many errors as I go. I did order a new keyboard from Dell but it hasn't arrived yet. So if there are errors, oh well.

I started a new group on Yahoo for people who create, or want to create, zines (zeenes as in magazine). I''m hoping it will be an active group with lots of great artwork.

All those little furry things you see all over the key board are furry bits left behind by Murphy who has been helping me all day.

Last week my darling grandson learned all about the joys of playdough. He had a blast.

I leave you with a quote from a show I watched last week, or the week before. It is from Southland. I can't remember who said it. " The next time I decide I want to get married I'm just going to go out, find some girl I don't like, and buy her a house."
