Thanksgiving Follow Up

Thanksgiving Day I spent 2 hours cleaning the nook glass and got the little tree up but not decorated.
I love the sparkle of clean glass.

Bob brought in one of the largest ever of our purple Kings Mantle flowers and I snapped it for you to see the brilliant purple.

I amThankful I am  in Florida with brilliant sunshine and bare feet and flowers for Thanksgiving.

Perfect Purple Kings Mantle

and showed it to the lazy dogs soaking up sunshine.

DeSoto Mall Eat More Chicken

Photos taken in Desoto Square Mall

 If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors?

You know that little indestructible black box that is used on planes - why cant they make the whole plane out of the same substance?

Becoming a vegetarian is a huge missed steak

Do vegetarians eat animal crackers?

Parking Lot Escapades of MadSnapper

Billy Bob, is that a woman with a camera standing in the middle of the driveway? OOGA OOOGA

photo from web

I, The MadSnapper parked my car at Dollar General and
and stepped out ... and behold! there was this amazing and odd shaped building.

YES! before I knew it the new  red camera popped out of my jeans pocket...SNAP!

And realized I was standing in the driveway right in front of a semi truck. Can you believe he did not even smile at me while I jumped stumbled out of his way? I was there FIRST...
The lack of smiles is OK , because at my next stop at Crowder Brothers Hardware, I bet I got laughs smiles because yet again I was standing in the driveway getting this. (yes, it would have been better from another angle, but there were cars waiting on me to move)

Florida, Winter Paradise on November 21, 2014

 and I am so Thankful, I was in short sleeves, capri pants , no coat, sandals
In Florida ....
Winter Paradise...
Just so you know...

I was hugged by a Dalmatian and loved it

This is the new Animal Ambulance Vet Care Express, To see there website and more about what they do for our two counties CLICK HERE
Photo below from their Facebook Page

I met two of the team, they gave me a sticker for my front door, that warns our fire dept there are dogs inside.

Manatee County Mosquito control was on site, explaining the need in Florida for
prevention of heart worm and other diseases that can harm our pets.

Our mosquitoes are not quiet this big... but close...

The planners for the Festival made sure there was water and the vendors had treats available for all the dogs. the hibiscus was by the water bowl and who could pass it up? NOT ME

That's It for this years Canine Christmas...

Canine Christmas-Big Guys

Meet Her Royal Highness, Ivy. I am mailing this pic to her mommy.

This is the third dog I wanted.. He was at the Pit Bull Rescue... they said he is a Mini Pit Mix..... When he heard that he howled with laughter.

Can you tell I love The Big Guy Dogs? 

These are the four I would have taken home if I could, My Choice from the 100 there... all four age 2 to 3 years old..every dog I have had since I was 8 was a rescue. And if you want pedigreed, there is a rescue out there for every breed.

I am doing a HAPPY DANCE.... My DSLR is up and running, I bought a new HD SanDisc card and it is back in working order. no repairs needed.
