It’s been a funny old year.

We made some new friends, one (Willow ) who keeps nabbing my bed and lost some but lets hope 2018 is as good. (And that Maria doesn’t bring all 15 of the pups she has fallen for home with her!)

My one wish is she would stop finding all of theses silly hats for us to wear.

We don’t like them.

Happy New Year everyone.

Bob’s Diary: The Lighthouse Award.

We are all smiling (Kevin included,) because belsbror has kindly awarded us :

the-lighthouse-award

If you are looking for a short post that will put a smile on your face check out belsbror’s site. I enjoy his anecdotes especially: I like it Hot

The accompanying rules and guidelines for this award are:

  1. Display the Award certificate on your blog.
  2. Write a post and link back to the blogger that nominated you.
  3. Inform your nominees of their award nominations
  4. Share three ways that you like to help other people.
  5. There is no limit to the number of people that you can nominate.
  6.  HAVE FUN!!!

Three ways we like to help others people

1.  Training Ellie for search and rescue work.

2.  Volunteering as an athletics coach

3. Volunteering on a committee which might help others find or create work.

There is a fourth (Bob’s idea): to give cuddles to kids and help put a smile on peoples faces.

Those I would like to nominate are:

Bob’s Diary: Happy New Year

We’re waiting on the New Year Fireworks, Kevin and me (he’s wearing his snazzy new teddy bear hat).

Ellie is rounding up all three dozen tennis balls and hiding them. (She thinks they will be stolen or eaten at midnight. What does she expect Breeze to pay a visit or aliens?)
