I had to drive Madison to Jacksonville for her little friends birthday so I recruited Zanne for an impromptu trip to their local scrapbook shop.  They always have cool stuff.  I got a new border punch, the two in one corner rounder from Fiskars, some Fancy pants stamps and some newish papers and embellies.  Since we were there we decided to stay and crop for a bit.  I got these two pages started.  it was great fun but I didn’t love the midnight drive home to Orlando.

Seems like I’ve been working on this typography poster forever. this is about the hundredth version of it. I think I’m finally happy with it. It may even hang in my studio/sb room.

Meet Dante

In spite of my initial decision not to get another dog when we lost Atilla, I somehow got the puppy bug. I managed to wait a few weeks and convince Neil before I found Dante at a pet rescue. He’s part lab and part cattle dog. I’ve never met a more mellow puppy. He seems to be house trained and crate trained and he never pulls the leash. He does chew everything in sight, a definite puppy behavior.

Responsibility

Madison has really stepped up in the taking care of puppy department. she is working hard to train him and never complains when she has to take him for a walk. Having Alyssa and Rocky join them on their walks definitely makes it more fun.

Best Buddies

Rocky is the Borisenko’s dog. He’s the sweetest boxer ever and has really taken to Dante. I love watching them hang out and play together. Although he’s three times heavier than rocky he’s always careful not to squish him.

At the vet

In the first 3 days we’ve had Rocky he’s had to go to the vet twice. First for shots and deworming and then for kettle cough. True to his nature, he doesn’t complain. He really is a sweet puppy

Orlando Magic vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

At the very last minute, Laura and Greg invited us to go to the Orlando magic game with them. Greg’s client sometimes lets him use his awesome seats three rows up from the floor. WAtching the game close up is a totally different experience from the nosebleed seats we usually get. You can really tell how huge the players are and it’s cool to see the expressions on their faces. It was also exciting sitting so close to Tiger Woods and taking a picture with Warren Sapp.
