Help or WARNING :-)

This was in the trunk of my husband's rented Camero (he was in Texas yesterday for a meeting).

 I think it's the trunk release catch, but I can't shake the the feeling that it's a warning that the car may try to eat pedestrians.

Be careful out there on your evening walks :-)

Reality Check

Abby - since I've lost some weight I think I need to try on that bathing suit I found in that old trunk of clothes. Those stars in Hollywood wear them at my age, right?

What do you think?

I Believe I Can Fly - The Labrador Song

 I believe I can fly

 I believe I can touch the sky

 I think about it every night and day
 Spread my wings and fly away

I believe I can soar

I see me running through that open door

 I believe I can fly

 I believe I can fly
 I believe I can fly

Attention - Kitty Lovers in North/Northcentral Indiana and Illinois

UPDATE:  "LUCY" HAS BEEN ADOPTED -  My best friend is sad to see her go but happy she's going where she will get a LOT of attention and loving. Also a  big thanks to my friend's sister who is a nurse practitioner and spread the word online to her friends in the medical community.

This little thing showed up at my best friend's country house in NW Indiana, near Valporaiso, likely dumped. My friend already has 8 rescues who had met the same fate who they then adopted but with extra vet expenses for the many seniors, she can't keep this little girl long term. This little soul appears to be and elf/kitten hybrid and is missing part of her tail (but it's healed nicely) and she has been to the vet for meds for worms and a wellness check. Other then the intestinal worms which are being treated, she's in excellent health and shot and spay expenses will be provided.   She is just a love and wants only to be held, purring even at the vet and she interacts well with other pets.

If anyone is interested in adding her to your family drop me a (do not post) message with a phone number or  email address and I'll have my friend contact you or drop me an email at cliodna58atgmaildotcom.

My friend is off  work weekends and could arrange a drop off if you'd like to adopt this sweet little girl (Abby the Lab thinks all small creatures are full of squeakers so a small kitty would not be a good fit in our house).

Pawlympic Smiles

It's our final event before the big closing ceremonies tomorrow (with speeches from all of the Blogville Mayor Candy-dates - Lexi, Christmas, and Arty.
