World's Best Kettle Corn!

I stumbled upon the best kettle corn at Sam's Club the other day. It is by Popcorn, Indiana and on a whim I decided to buy a bag. OH MY GOSH! I practically ate the whole bag by myself! It was so good. I don't know how long it has been around but I have been clueless until now. It also comes in other flavors and when I went to Walgreens they had aged white cheddar that I knew Ron would love. It was delicious too, but if you like kettle corn you HAVE to try the original stuff. But watch out or you'll be addicted too. I'm already planning another trip to Sam's Club! And you can order all their flavors online. Woo Hoo!

Here kitty kitty . . .

Since my last post was about a dog, I decided I would give equal coverage to the feline population. (Which after last weekend is slightly smaller!) Ron and his good friend and hunting buddy Sterling Leavitt went mountain lion hunting in Southern Arizona and both were successful. Ron was supposedly just tagging along for the fun of it but I knew he could not resist shooting one when the opportunity arose. It is a small tom but it is his first one and he was pretty excited. He is having it made into a rug that will one day adorn the walls of our home. I can hardly wait!

The hard working hunters with their results. Starting off 2009 with a bang!

A Stitch in time saves nine!

There is much truth to this old adage! This is our dog Stitch. She had a problem with her heat cycles and her female parts wanting to hang out. (Very gross I know, just be glad I didn't include a picture of that!) The vet said she was producing too much estrogen and we needed to have her spayed. Well it went away after her cycle and I planned on getting her fixed but as usual I thought I had lots of time. Then boom, before we knew it she was in heat again and the problem was even worse. So after weeks went by and it didn't get better I finally bit the bullet and took her to the vet. (Ron thought we should use the bullet!) So as the saying goes, if I would have got Stitch spayed in time it would have saved me $900! (Actually it was $600 but still way more than it would have been!) She also had a small tumor on her head that the vet removed. Poor thing, she has to wear that cone around her neck and bumps into everything. But consider it an expensive lesson learned to not procrastinate!

New Years Resolutions

A new year always brings reflection on life and what needs to be changed or improved. Unfortunately I'm far from perfect and the list is always long! There was an article online that listed the top ten resolutions and they are:

1. Spend more time with family and friends.
2. Get fit.
3. Lose weight.
4. Quit smoking.
5. Enjoy life more.
6. Quit drinking.
7. Get out of debt.
8. Learn something new.
9. Help others more.
10. Get organized.

These are some really good goals I need to work on and since I don't have to worry about #4 or #6 (unless Diet Coke counts), I would like to add increasing my spirituality. A tall order indeed but what the heck anythings possible! How are your new years goals coming along? Let's encourage each other and see how we do. Happy New Year!
