Missing me!

There’s something so precious about pets.

The loyalty.  The unconditional love.

This is how Splotchy waits for me.

10562600_10203454379872395_6894588904997630070_oIt doesn’t matter if she waits 5 minutes or an hour. She showers me with kisses and that wagging tail as if I’ve been gone for days.

It doesn’t get any better than this!

Birthday Wishes


I know some people do, but my sister has been so very important in my life. Even though I’m the big sister, she’s the one I go to. She has a lot more common sense and sensible advice than I was ever blessed with!ab_sister35She has helped me through so many ups and downs. She has always been there for me .We don’t always let family know how very much they are appreciated!funny-birthday-8

But I love you Beth! Hope this is your best birthday ever!

From this crazy side of the family ( and yes, we are) best birthday wishes are sent!!



Pets are family, too!

My poor Splotchy is so cold!

She’s sick of winter, like the rest of us here. She normally rides along in the morning when I take my son to work. He has to sit in the back, of course, she sits up front with me! Today I put my jacket on and looked at her. She had curled up on the couch. She just looked at me and snuggled down in. I jingled my keys..nothing.


Now I didn’t want to go out in the cold either!

I’m not sure, but I think I may have been totally disrespected.

Poor old girl!

The winter chill is a lot worse this year and I know it bothers me more every year.

We can all learn so much from dogs. After I came home, I took her advice and snuggled in with her!

Stay warm!




A New Path

I’ve decided to begin a new adventure.

I’m now starting a path as an independent consultant for Paparazzi Jewelry!  I’m learning as I go and it really is different for me. I’ve always been more of a tom boy type.

It really looks like fun.


Just have to keep trying new things!

Fun in the Sun

I spent my Saturday at a vendor show, sitting in the sun. It was at a huge pet store in the area to benefit Furever Adoptions.

 We had a great time selling jerky and watching all the excitement!


002004003005001We really did quite well, and I always enjoy meeting other vendors and shoppers. Sometimes, I think it might help deal with my depression by getting out of my comfort zone!  It really was a beautiful day.

Hope to see ya soon!



The Little Teapot

Sometimes when I travel the same routes, I don’t really pay too much attention to my surroundings. I recently noticed an adorable sight in a town right across the river in Hellam PA



007Yep, It’s a cute teapot on a tree stump! Behind it is a victorian home. It’s called The Front Porch Tearoom. They serve high tea, and special events around Valentines Day. I think the cutest events must be The Fairy Princess Tea and The Daddy and Daughter Tea.

008It just shows how interesting the sights are when we pay attention.  I’m hoping to make reservations for high tea soon!


Hope to see ya soon.

Take the Pledge


I just can’t believe people leave their pets or children in a car in this heat!  There are always so many warnings alerting parents of both pets and kids, it has to be a total moron not to take heed!

The only time Splotchy goes in the car over the summer months, is a ride to the river. Even then, the a/c is going full blast. I would never be able to forgive myself if something bad were to happen.

She still won’t jump in the river,( or go for a walk in the rain) but it really is so nice and cool relaxing under the trees.

Hopefully people will  soon smarten up.

Hope to see ya soon!

My New Fur-nephew

..My sister has a new addition to her family. His name is Waldo ( yes, I’ve done a million where’s Waldo jokes.)  He is so very sweet and lovable. We were told he’s about 5 years old.  Her other baby, Cocoa, wasn’t to happy at first, but they’ve become fast friends.

They just love chasing each other around the yard.They were my latest customers at WWW.MargeM.JerkyDirect.com. They both enjoyed the all natural jerky treats.

Grandmas been busy!

Yes, I’ve been busy!

I’ve been at different yard sales and craft shows. Selling my Jerky.  They have all kinds of jerky, even pet jerky! made in the USA. Splotchy thinks it tastes great. 

I do enjoy getting out and about with my cards, flyers and jerky samples. We always have something to add to a yard sale. We might just be able to save enough for that house down payment after all.Image



 Fruit snacks, turkey jerky, beef jerky, even buffalo!   Low in fat, High in protein.

The grocery bill alone for these pets and grandkids is enough to knock your socks off.

I’m praying this is a big success.

See ya soon and I’ll keep ya updated.
