New Member of the Family

Meet KC, the new baby of Tom Becker of
Massapequa NY.

KC came to Tom via the Long Island Rescue
Animal Shelter, North Shore. She was a rescue
from a puppy mill bust in the KY/TN area in May
and brought to the Long Island area along with
many others. KC is believed to be about 3 years
old and has had 6 to 8 sets of puppies.

Tom was set to bring her home and was waiting
for the paperwork when a female lab being walked
by a volunteer attacked her and ripped open her
throat and bit into other areas that required 3 hours of surgery to repair.

She is now settled in with Tom and is such a doll. He has yet to hear her bark. We did hear her
whine for him when he went out the door. The King Charles breed were bred to be lap dogs for
the royale and wealthy, she definately has this gene....LOL.

RedHat Day in Louisville, KY

And....we were off! First the 4 hour trek over to
Louisville. GREAT busdriver. She was super
smooth all the way. Our first stop was the paddle
wheeler Belle of Louisville. We had a great lunch,
everything, from mashed potatoes, potatoe salad,
mac and cheese, roast beef, ham, fried chicken, and
tons of veggies too. Desert was pies, apple, cherry,
pecan, and I am sure there were others, I just went
with the cherry. Then we road the paddle wheeler
down the Ohio River and back to the dock.

Of course there was our ever present in the face
photographer....Vicki. Her camera is never far away
and seemed always where you were! I believe she
finally ran out of memory towards the end of the
last race.

Churchill Downs was the final destination. Lots of
fun had by all, some won, like me....LOL, and others
lost. Well all three of us, Vicki, Patty, and I lost the very
last race. Well we did be on a 30 to 1 odd horse. Boy....
sigh....if we had won....well dream anyway. Back on
the bus for the trip home. Started out with lots of
talking, but soon faded to quiet as the night came over
the bus. It was a great day, one none of us will soon forget.

Look whats in my Garden.....

I was taking reference flower pictures
to add to my growing list when this
butterfly landed right in front of me.
You can see where his proboscis, hope
this was spelled right, is entering the
flowers center for the nectar.

All my flowers are blooming and really
doing great this year. The Trumpet Vine
is loaded with open blooms and lots more
buds to go too. I will post more of my
blooms and critters again soon.
