Tasty Tuesday - Advent Time

We were so excited that our Costco had Advent Calendars for us. We had never had them before! Lady was away December 1 and 2, so we doubled up to start to catch up but now Lady says one a day.

We are delighted

Note - we didn't have to wear hats, the paper dog did instead!

There are 6 different types of treats to enjoy! 


We are very much looking forward to tasty December!

Mischief Monday - Tales From A Crazy Week

 Dear pals,

It was a wild week here last week. First, the Man had a bit of a return of the Covid, but at the time of writing this, he is feeling much better. Lady went to a conference for a few days. Her travel companion, who had the hotel room, had to cancel at the last minute due to a car accident (the friend is fine, it is just the accident was in the rental - not her fault - because her new car was in the shop because it had been stolen and recovered 2 days before). The friend had too many police, insurance, collision centre things to deal with. Now you are wondering why the friend didn't just add Lady to the hotel reservation, well the friend would have but another business was paying the $700 a night, so she couldn't. Lady was able to secure free lodging with a friend who was one of the keynote speakers. It all worked out and Lady had a good time, saw a lot of colleagues and flew for the first time since March 2020. 

We heard there were two dogs at this conference. One was a service dog, not pictured, who had a command 'make a friend' so Lady would touch him. Then there was this dog. 



For us personally, even though we missed Lady a lot, the start of the hat tax was the worst thing to happen. Lady is doing something different this year. She will do an official hat tax photo shoot later in the month, and in the meantime she will also do some random, we are just minding our own business ones.

Here is the first payment of December.

Nature Friday - Turkey Time

 Thanks to Rosy for hosting this hop.

With Christmas coming, we think these birds may be better off heading somewhere else! However, they are loving our yard and we love sniffing after them.




Did you know you can call a group of wild turkeys a flock, a rafter or a gaggle?

Tasty Tuesday - 2 Dish Monty

 One of the evenings where Man was feeling human again, he made us play 2 dish monty.




The Man was very disappointed that in general we selected where we saw him put the treat and didn't follow where it was. We were not disappointment because we got a lot of cookies.
