Judy and I don’t usually have too much company on Sunday mornings, but Katie Bug spent the night Saturday, so she could have some of Papaw’s famous pancakes.

After breakfast, Tracy came in, carrying her new “daughter” Roxy, a cute little Boston Terrier, to visit her mom (Judy).

Soon after, Charlotte and Gary came by looking for some computer help. They are leaving this week for Florida; the first road trip in their new RV. Gary’s computer would not recognize the upgrade CD for his GPS, so he brought it over to try it on mine. It opened fine, but the reason it would not upload the new map information was that he didn’t have a blank SD chip. Problem solved – he knew then what he had to do!

Tracy let Roxy down in the yard to let her play for the first time with my dog Baylee. Baylee probably outweighs her by 80 pounds, but she was receptive to the little pup and they played hard together. They chased a tennis ball, rolled in the grass, and chewed on each other’s ears for a long time.

We took Roxy in and she was soon fast asleep. Once asleep the pup sleeps so soundly that you can pick her up and move her around without waking her. She lay across Tracy’s chest, the place she loves most to sleep, and then lolled her head back over Tracy’s shoulder and kept sleeping.

Just thought you would enjoy seeing something so cute, sleeping soundly, with no cares at all!

The best photo, I think, was of here at Tracy’s feet in the yard. Look at those ears – head cocked so perfectly, trying to figure me out!

I'm loving Roxy's cheesecake photo best, too. What a cutie pie!

Nothin' like a new puppy. Sounds like a wonderful day.

Looks like a fine Sunday morning to me. Today we celebrated my grandson's first birthday, even though his birthday was about three weeks ago.

Pups and kids are all cute. It's when they go growin' up the problems arise.

Awww how cute. I love the last photo. Priceless.

Awww, it's impossible not to smile looking at this! I love that shot with her head slung back, oblivious to the world.. so relaxed and safe. Actually Mushy, I believe that could be a good similie for what your home represents - a safe warm place for your friends and family to drift into as and when.

You seem to have found the perfect balance, my friend.

Awwwww. Puppies and babies. Two things I just can't resist.

Makin' me smile, Sir Mushy. Gee, your suggestion about doing the Yukon together would have been sensational!

We literally missed each other by a few days.
