Photo by Michael T. Henry

Today Isabella had a visitor.  Tequila came over for the day.

Bella wasn’t quite sure what to do with another dog in the house with her….

This picture is kind of blown out from the sun, but I think it’s funny how the two of them are looking at each other!

They were so cute!  They got along better than I thought they would!!

Do your pets get along with other animals?

Boston Self Portrait

Today Michael and I took his Mother out to Boston to Tuft’s Medical Center for eye surgery.
All went well and she’s back home and comfortable.
While in the waiting room I was playing with the camera on my cell phone and I took this picture.
I was surprised you can see me so well!  (Especially considering how dirty my laptop screen is!!)

Do you like having your picture taken?

You have no excuse with meetup.com
Meetup has 100s of groups based on common interests that you can join.

We became part of our Motorcycle Club No Destination through meetup.com

Some of the bikes lined up with a few club members.

On meetup there are women’s groups, motorcycle groups, photography groups, Scrabble groups, scrapbooking groups, travel groups, cooking groups, dining groups, movie groups….  the list goes on and on….  You can go to the site to search all of the different groups based on where you live.

So next time you’re sitting home, bored with nothing to do – check out a meetup.com event and make some new friends 🙂

Loaded Questions

Last night Michael and I attended the Times Union’s Baseball & Bloggers event at the Dale Miller Restaurant.   It was a fun evening with a great turn out.  It was out first visit to the Dale Miller Restaurant.  The event was held on the 13th Floor (A.K.A. – P1) and the views were beautiful!!  Mike Huber – the Times Union’s Interactive Audience Manager organized the event.  Job well done Mike 🙂

Baseball & Bloggers - Boston Red Sox vs. NY Yankees

We arrived earlier than most of the crowd along with Amanda Talar and Kari Vanalstine.  Soon after; we were approached by a Times Union photographer who wanted to take pictures of us.  After she took the picture she asked us “Where are you from?”  (Insert awkward silence here)

WHAT A LOADED QUESTION!!

After she left Kari and I got talking about the possible answers.

Where it all stated:  I came from my Mother’s womb.
Where I grew up:  I grew up in Red Hook, NY (Dutchess County)
Since it was a blogging event I could have said my blog: Dozenroses13’s Blog
Where I currently live: Albany County

Kari’s response to the woman was “when?”  (She’s moved around through the years….)

What other loaded questions have you been asked??
