Fiber artist Mary Jo Scandin says it so well.

More Wyanne friends

The feast of St. Peter and Paul, two such opposite chosen ones. There must be room for all of us!

Eddie and Lupe:
an elderly Asian couple Wyanne and I have encountered twice recently on our walks. The first time, trying to anticipate people's sometimes reluctance to pass near a pup, I put Wyanne in a well mannered sit. They passed by, but the gentleman surprised me by acknowledging what a good, pretty pup I had.
This morning they stopped me and asked if I knew the way to a catholic church. It took me a minute to get my bearings, and I offered to walk with them to show them the way, but the gentleman said he's legally blind, and would not be able to see the way. They would go in the car with his wife driving. I was able to give them directions that they could easily follow and when he again commented on how beautiful Wyanne is I told them her story. As we parted I asked them to say a prayer for us.
They can be added to the list with Robin and Lisa and Cecie. Good work, as always, Wyanne!

My favorite Austin pic

Did I mention that Katie and Derek live in the country?
They're in a beautiful development of homes, but as you travel toward the lake from their house, about a mile in, it gets more and more countrified. We were exploring and came across this guy - our first longhorn. Incidentally he just lives down the road from Lake Austin Spa, which is about as glamorous as you can get, and, apparently his owners live in a mansion on the lake. Fun to see the choices of the 'other half.'

God bless our troops and their families

I wasn't sure what this was, and found myself getting annoyed waiting for it to load.
Please watch it and say a prayer for our heroes.

I can't believe how addicted I am to Scrabulous, despite the fact that I never win. I just wish I could get more of my facebook friends playing. I can guarantee I will seldom win!
