Gosh terrible happenings in Norway.  So many killed ... I don't understand these people who take out their frustrations on innocent people. My thoughts and prayers are with the Norwegians at this horrible time.

How do you know when it is time to

"hang up the car keys"?
I say when your dog has this look on his face!

I have my friend Dozer here for the weekend again. We went for a nice long walk this morning at 6 am. and now .. like most dogs... he's sleeping again.  After he got me up to go for a walk he now flops down and is snoozing whilst I'm wide awake.    Lovely summers day its going to be. 

There's a cute little girl image from my Etsy Shoppe for you .... click to see her original size and save it from there.

Finally summer seems to have arrived up here in the woods.  The mosquitos are out and about in plentiful supply which always makes me feel sorry for the animals who have no escape from them other than to jump into the nearest river, lake or stream.  On our bike ride this evening we saw a wonderful sight.  A mother deer crossing the little back street from the wooded area into another field and running like the wind behind her was a little fawn.  He or she was following mum as fast as possible.  They were not in any danger but I did say a prayer as I continued on my bike ride that they would not venture too much further in that direction because the train line was getting very close.  I worry all the time that they will be killed.  An astounding 25,000 animals are killed on railways, and roads each year across Canada. At that figure I wonder if there is any left ..........  so sad ......   I guess that includes foxes .. one of which we saw close to the road ... also deer, moose, wolves, coyotes, lynx, skunks and every other big or small creature that inhabits the woods.  I sure do love seeing them and now have three little squirrels arguing daily about who is going to get the sunflower seeds before the birds do.

Oh I am so glad that Casey Anthony trial is over and done with apart from the sentencing tomorrow. It's been a long 6 weeks watching it. Enthralling  and often weird. I still do not know how she was found not guilty in the death of her sweet little girl.  I doubt Casey's life will be worth much now with all the people who disagreed with the verdict pestering and hounding her.  She was definitely guilty.  Many people are calling it the OJ 2 verdict.  Same atrocious outcome.   So sad for the little girl ... no justice ....  How any mother could not even report her child missing for 31 days .. then it wasn't even her then who rang police .. it was her own mother.  Little Caylee looked sweet and adorable and was obviously loved by her grandparents.   I don't think they want anything more to do with their daughter  Casey after this.

We are off for a drive today in our new vehicle.  Well new to us anyway.  It's so nice .. I love it.  And maybe now I can get my drivers licence again and get out and about a bit more.    Garage sales ... trips to the pizza parlour, at least I'll be able to take myself to the doctors or dentist.    Independance ...  can't beat that.

I have a Canada long weekend guest ... his name is Dozer and he is absolutely gorgeous.  He's ten years old and lives two doors down and his grandparents who care for him have gone away for three days. 

So far we have walked twice quite a long way, we've had hamburgers and grilled cheese sandwiches ...    He's so beautiful with a big thick coat like a wolf. 

Of course he's getting spoiled.  We'll be having eggs and bacon for breakfast tomorrow.  I think he might want to move in here permanently.
