Charlie...say cheese!

Ever try to get your dog to pose for a pic? Well, the other night while at our friends' house, Lisa stuck some ears on Charlie. Then, we had a few takes! It was near impossible to get Charlie to say "Cheese!"...

First...Dynamo said, "Charlie, stay...."

Charlie yawned!

Dynamo: "Stay..." 
Charlie: "Really, Dad?"

Dynamo: "Charlie, look at Momma..."
Charlie: "Who?"

Dynamo: "No, other way..."

Me: "Charlie, treat!"
Charlie: "Who, me?"

Ta Da!!

Last Saturday, Charlie and I went to the Petersburg Farmers Market!

It was a busy day for all of the vendors! A little chilly, but a great time!

The Market runs every Saturday all year! I only go once each month, but every weekend you can find the regulars!

Happy Shopping!

Are you thinking tropical yet?

 Imagine the blue/green waters in the Gulf of Mexico!

This soap is so pretty and a top seller among men and women! 

If you haven't tried it, you should do so! It's a great fresh scent!

 So lovely and pretty with its two shades of green and just a hint of red!

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be.

-Robert Browning (1812-1889)

Just to know each day
That you are here
To listen and love,
To laugh and care,
Makes each new day
Seem bright and new.
I love you more with each new day!
