Sunday, I drove to Charleston SC for four wonderful days. While I was gone, I stood on the ocean floor and wiggled my toes pondering what I would write about upon my return…


This is a common practice of mine (not the “toe wiggling in the ocean” part), because I think about writing all the time. Stories race through my brain – compliments of my entertaining subject. If Harley is anywhere within vision proximity, I guarantee you, there’s something going on. Therefore I write 🙂

When I am away from Harley, I am super anxious to hear what “shenanigans” have occurred (in my absence) that are worthy of a blog post! Today’s story literally “fell in my lap”  before I even got home, by way of text messages between family members about the wind, the tree and the dog! All of it happened –

 While I Was Gone 




















Harley must have worked extremely hard to have fallen asleep balancing his head on the stick…


That’s what I call a “hard working doodle”

Thanks for reading, I had a great time, but trust me when I tell you –

 “There’s No Place Like Doodleville!” 

Have a great weekend, be safe and be kind 🙂

    The texts are too funny, and the pic of Harley running with his stick is pure joy!

    HAHAHA My doodles are help in the yard too –HA Dash likes to help me dig and Lilly likes to sit in the shade and supervise. Harley looks to be a lot more help than Dash and Lilly! Doodles are silly

      Harley has always been a stick man, Leo on the other hand had no interest. He would have laid around the yard waiting for an occasional toss of the ball, but he never ran after a stick. I miss my big baby still 🙁

      Jenna, he is a huge help especially in the entertainment arena…. Comic relief helps during an afternoon of manual labor!

      It could have been much worse Slimdoggy – this way we didn’t loose the fence, that would have been disastrous!

    Oh my! That WAS a big tree! I’m glad no one was hurt! And you have such good helpers!

      Yes it was and yes we did! I am not ashamed to admit that I was happy not to be there for the initial clean-up 🙂
