Our Holiday Card for 2021 and a "Stoned" Good Time!

 Hi everyone! Hoping you are all well!

First, my DEEPEST apologies that for the FIRST YEAR since I have been blogging (in 2009), I did not send out ANY holiday snail mail cards. Part of this was due to Chanukah falling disgustingly early, and I completely dropped the ball. I didn't have time to have snail mail cards made, haven't bought postage, and didn't even buy boxed cards from the store!!  The other reason is that I had a huge kidney stone attack the day after Thanksgiving and have not been feeling well at all. I am going in for Lithotripsy Number "I Lost Count, 15 Maybe?" on the 10th, so I wanted to be sure to post our holiday card for all of you now, on the day designated as:



 just in case I am feeling awful for a while after the lithotripsy. SO BE SURE TO GRAB THE CARD BELOW!!

In addition to our holiday card which was made by the sweet, thoughtful and loving Ann of the Zoolatry blog, I am including a couple of photos of Levi that Levi's most favorite person from Canine College, (Dylan), took yesterday! Enjoy!!


and from ME TOO!!!!

Wishing you ALL

a happy, safe and blessed

Holiday season!!!!

I am grateful for each and every one of you!



Do you think maybe Levi

could get a job with Santa 

guiding his sleigh???

Love to all of you!!

  20. Me and dad hope things go well for you, Caren. I can only imagine what you're going through (dad's had one brief experience with stones and says he wouldn't wish that pain on his worst enemy). Your cards are absolutely beautiful, and there's no need for an apology!
