Having a video phone call on Skype.

My daughter on Long Island called the other day when our friend Lucy was here for a visit. After a few minutes on the phone we decided to complete the conversation on Skype. I turned the short couch around to face the web cam and everyone got into the picture, literally.

Once again, watching TV at our house.

I know now that this is not a very unusual scene. We had just finished watching television and it was time for bed and then I discovered I was the only one who was still awake.

Pay no attention to the pumpkins and Halloween designs on my wife's sweatshirt. She wears it all year long because she gets chills, especially when the air-conditioning is on in the Summer.

WOW! Time flies when there's lots of work to do.

Just wanted to share some cute pictures of our Rottweiler family and when I opened my blog I noticed I haven't posted anything here in three weeks. With the nice weather outside there has been a slew of projects that had to be finished. Here is a photo I took yesterday morning. I spotted my wife relaxing on the deck with her ever vigilant protectors right beside her. It was such a peaceful scene and I didn't want to disturb anyone so I took the photo through the glass door.

The new wall project has been completed and the flower garden planted and now we have a nicer place to sit by the pool to enjoy the evening. 
Haven't forgotten our best friends. We do manage to taken them for long walks down the back after dinner so they can investigate every new scent they find. We have a variety of creatures that visit us, mostly at night, but there are always the startled rabbits that grab their attention.
And Ruff always enjoys playing peek-a-boo from behind a tree.
Hope you all enjoy a nice Summer. Looks like its gonna be a good one.
