And, the Youngest Member of Our Family....

Meet Mason.  Also known as "Mason Malone" or "The Big Woofda."  He is the "baby" of the family (in more ways than one...) He is a little over a year and a half old.  My son called me one day at work and asked if he could get a puppy. I said no: our house was too small for the 3 pets we already had. He asked again. I asked what kind. He said a  Siberian Husky.  I said "Absolutely Not!"  We had a Siberian years ago and they are runners, chewers and shedders. He asked again. He pleaded. I held my ground.  Then the hubby called.  He asked if I was going to let our son get a puppy. I said "Absolutely NOT!!" Especially not a Siberian...they are runners, chewers, and shedders.  Besides, the kid needs to learn some responsibility first before he takes on a dog, because I have enough "taking care of" going on with the other 3 scoundrels we have.  This is what I came home to:

Cute is as cute does I suppose.  Then choas.  I cannot begin to tell you the things he has gotten into and chewed up.  Ahhh...material for another post I suppose.  (And, yeah I know....that's a lot of shoes!)

Anywhohow....Here's Mason all growed up.  And, yup, that's the couch he's laying on.  Same one he kicked Lizzi and Gazoo off of....

A Few Introductions........

Ok....this is practice....I'm going to try to see if I can get a picture in my post (rather than just in the sidebar)....and thought it might be the opportune time to make some introductions to my "family."  Now - again - please bear with me.  Like I said, I'm not a photographer - and I have just figured out how to get pictures from a digital (eeh gads) camera to the computer.  So don't be holding out for any fancy schmancy photoshop things.....Without further adieu.....Here is Lizzi (the Siamese looking thing) and Gazoo....(the Shih Tzu...also known as "The Great Gazoo.")  ( Hard to really see, but, yes, Lizzi is laying on top of Gazoo, and they both are laying on Gazoo's sheepskin blankie.)  Lizzi thinks she's Gazoo's BFF, but Gazoo isn't really there yet....

Awww...Thank you, Teresa, for being so kind to not only visit me here in blogland, but to become a follower!!  You've given me inspiration to try to figure this whole blog thing out. I promise! I did manage a "profile" so you all will kind of have an introduction to me ~ and we'll go from there...Photos....hmmmm...that'll take some doing as my daddy would say. I not such a hot photographer....and only just figured out how to even get them from my camera to the computer - so.....I hope you're good at holding your breath!

My Very First Blog; My Very First Post

Well, this ought to be an adventure....I am forcing myself - ever so slowly- into the 21st century.  I haven't yet mastered following blogs, so I'm not entirely sure why I think I can actually create or maintain one of my own, but I was up for an experiment today.  We'll see how it goes!  Wish me luck!!
