It hasn't been the best weather in Phoenix this winter.  We had a major cold snap with 5 nights of sustained freezes that has played havoc on many shrubs, trees and cacti.  Lots of cold, windy and rainy days too.  But even as I hasn't been anything like the weather back home in Indiana.

SOOO....I will try not to complain!!

Life has not slowed down here in Arizona.  In Addition my work as English Cocker Spaniel Rescue Chair keeps me busy, busy, busy!  I even took on a foster dog who's name is Lucky. 
He was given up by his owner and we found him and his sister Lacie, in a California shelter.  We 'sprung' them both from shelter jail!  Lucky is a 'talkative' boy and because of that, the other dogs in the foster home he was in, didn't seem to like him very much.  So a decision was made to send him to me here in Arizona where he would be an only dog and I could get him ready for adoption.
Meanwhile, back home in Indiana....Mr. Fix It is hard at work fixing and remodeling our house to sell.  He retires in one year!  And we can't afford the 'country estate' on retirement! 
A little birdy tells me that he may be too busy playing tea time with his adorable grandaughter, Lacie.  So I'm not sure how well the remodeling is going!!
But then.....who could refuse that priceless little face!!!  If I was home, I 'might' be tempted to put on those big goofy glasses too! 
Well....maybe not! 


  1. It may be to cold to fix anything!

    Good luck with the new foster. He should find no problem finding a good home.

  2. Retirement? What's that? That new foster is a cutie!

    SO GOOD to hear from you!
    Lucky is lucky to be with you, I'm sure.
    Mr. Fix-It is a hoot in his glasses.
    Hugs from cold Ohio :)

  4. Hi Karen,
    That Lucky sure is a sweetie! He's so "lucky" to have found you to help him along!!
    Got a charge out of Mr. fixit and those glasses at the tea party! It's funny how little grand daughters can charm them into almost anything! LOL! Great to hear from you! Hope your Dad is doing well! We have cabin fever here big time.... more snow predicted...ugh! This winter has really started to wear on me!
    Hope to see more posts!!

  5. Hi Karen, it is so nice to hear from you...What a sweet little girl, grandchildren have a way of wrapping "us" grandparents around their little finger in no time at all...I know this first hand! Glad to read you are doing well, how is your dad? I hope he is well too. Lucky is a beautiful dog, and very lucky to have you. Winter continues to find us here in Maine, more snow tomorrow, can spring be far behind? Greetings, Julie.
