I got so wrapped up in writing about Thanksgiving that I forgot mention my Dad’s and Brother’s short visit before I left for Louisiana! We had a nice visit and took a walk through our Botanical Gardens to see the Christmas Lights. But, more importantly – How GORGEOUS is my brother’s dog? This is Sadie and she was great company. She is part Chow (she even has the purple tongue) and part Shiba Inu. She also has a very adorable bark that doesnt sound like it belongs to anything bigger than a poodle. However, she IS bigger than a poodle...

My name is Zoot, and I’m a lurker. I find it embarrassing to admit that. I’m the one who is always begging her lurkers to come forward and say, “hi”, yet I’m the one lurking around certain blogs daily. I’m admitting my lurki-ness today, and today only – so I can shout out congrats to a couple of bloggers, with the rest of the world. Way to go Julie and Batman! I’ve been lurking at Julie’s blog everyday for awhile now, and thanks to Tertia (I lurk at her blog too), we are all aware of her wonderful good news....

My To Do List 15

My To Do List

1. Clean up stains on the carpet. Evidently leaving the cats alone for five days inspired puking frenzies galore. Not a pleasant thing to come home to – just for the record. 2. Finish the 58 loads of laundry that have accumulated post return from vacation. Can’t I enforce a house rule that mandates no NEW laundry can be dirtied until the old laundry is clean? Or can’t we just become nudists? 3. Get cavity filled and wisdom teeth pulled. Yeah – did I mention I went to the dentist the day before vacation? Both LilZ and I go back...

Life is INSANE right now people. INSANE. So I’m updating you on my life piece by piece. I have ninety trillion things I want to tell you about – but for now? Some pictures from Thanksgiving 2004. MrZ and his PRETTY pink suitcase. This is at the train station in Birmingham waiting for our train which was an hour late. Yes, an HOUR late. And just for the record…the Birmingham train station is VERY boring. VERY. This is the crew on the platform waiting to get on the train. From left to right is BroA (MrZ’s bro), GrandmaH (MrZ’s mom),...

Checking In

I finally have internet access at a little Beignet Shop here in Slidell, LA. My train arrives in about 45 minutes so I thought I would pop in and upload one picture from our trip. This is us on the train ride on Wednesday. We’ve had a great trip, I’ve met gobs of family, and I’ve gained nine-million pounds. The food ALONE here requires months of entries all on its own! I hope you all had a GREAT Thanksgiving. Much hugs and love to you all! I’ll be back home in about 9 hours!
