It seemed like everyone was going out and having fun, so I asked the tall guy if he would take me back up to the lake. AND HE DID! Sometimes he's a pretty good guy. Although I got a bit excited when we got there and just about broke his neck when we were trying to get to the water! I'll have to work on that or we won't get to go back :(
I had to stay on my string because there were a lot of people there fishing and the tall guy was afraid that I would try to go up and say hello to them.
We saw ducks!
And then we went to the ski area where all the snow used to be.
Someone must have borrowed it, because it's all gone now.
I don't know why he wanted to take a picture of a flower, but here it is!
We had a pretty cool day.
We left the windows down so I could dry off on the way home.
And now I don't even stink!
On another note, the tall guy still needs about 5 more recipes for the cook book.
Evidently after I get a bath, I have a mohawk on my back. So I guess it's a back-hawk. It only sticks up for a little while until I sleep on it. On the other hand, the tall guy gets a really bad case of the bedhead when he wakes up in the morning. He won't let me put a picture of that on here. But trust me, it's pretty scary!!
Jack (that's me), the dog (that's me too), tries to help a young boy find his baseball. As Jack (me) looks, he finds lots of different kinds of balls until he finally finds the right one! You'll love reading this book along with your kids. An early reader children's book, written for children aged 3 - 6.
*PS - If you don't have a Kindle, you can get the free Kindle app for your computer or phone HERE. It's pretty neat! If you don't have a computer, you can get the Kindle Cucumber app. You won't be able to read any books, but you'll get some really funny looks at the grocery store, walking around looking at your cucumber!
So, after fees, handling and taxes, the winners will each get their .03¢ gift certificates in the mail as soon as...
What? You mean we're not including fees, handling and taxes? You mean they get the whole entire amount? Well I wish I had known that. I would have entered myself!!
So, as soon as the tall guy gets back from the grocery store, I'll have him email each of the winners with their prizes!!
Here's hoping that everyone has a great weekend.
Oh, and get ready for another announcement on Monday! :) (No, I am not getting no brother or sister - you can just get that idea out of your heads!)
Yesterday was such a nice day, we went to the park, sat in the shade and looked at all the puppies. (This was just the "walking around" park, not the "getting to play with the other dogs" park.)
We had such a good time that we hope that today is a "puppy looking day" for you!
It was also a "stick eating day", but I don't think many of you would care to have a "stick eating day". Although I'm told that it does provide roughage. All I know is it gives the tall guy a reason to practice saying "Drop it!" like 800 times a minute. He's gotten so good at it, he doesn't even need to use the vowels anymore, so it ends up being more like "DRPT!". Which is completely different than his "UHN" sound, which is what he uses when he gets tired of his "NO" sound. Which is a lot.
On another note, the tall guy wanted me to say "A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU" to everybody in the world. On Friday, we sold the 1000th copy of my book at Amazon. So, to celebrate, we want to give away something (not a copy of the book, since most of you already have that). So, if you leave a comment on any of the blog posts between now and Friday at 5:00, you have a chance to win a $25.00 gift card from Amazon. Just think of all the dog toys you could buy with that!
And we're still collecting dog recipes for the dog cook book!!
PS - Don't worry. I'm not losing my hair. It's supposed to be a wig, but it is really one of the Tall Guy's socks that I like to chew on. He even tied knots in the end so he said it was ok if I played with this one. PPS - Be thankful it's not his underwears!
The tall guy says he's ready to start putting together the cookbook of recipes FOR and BY dogs (and feline puppies). So here is what he needs for you to do. Please read carefully or he will go crazy and then I will have to come and live with one of you!
1. Please send your recipe(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Please let him know if it is a REAL recipe for a pet or a recipe that your DOG wrote.
I know he should be able to tell, but if you ever tasted his cooking, you would understand where I'm coming from! It would be cool if you have both a real recipe and a dog recipe, but either one is ok. You can send as many recipes as you want, but please make sure they are yours.
3. Please put the name of the dish at the beginning of the recipe.
4. Please put the name YOU want to be listed by. For example, the tall guy might put: Jack's Cookies by The Tall Guy. (That is just an example, because if it is not a peanut butter sandwich or popcorn, he is not much in the cooking department.) It can be your real name if you want it to be.
5. If you want to include a picture of anything to go along with your recipe(s), please include that as well. You can have a picture of what you cooked, a picture of your pet eating whatever it is you cooked, or just a picture of your car. Just as long as it is a picture that you took and didn't get from the Internets.
The tall guy will take all the recipes and turn it into an ebook and put it on Amazon for sale. ALL OF THE MONEY (except for the part that Amazon takes) will be donated to a worthy cause (be thinking of someone or some organization we can donate it to!).
You will still own your recipe. You can do whatever you want with it. You can send it to your friends, send it to another cookbook, or even use it in your OWN cookbook. By submitting the recipe, you are basically just saying that it's ok to put it in THIS cookbook.
The tall guy said he will send you an email to let you know that he got your recipe. Once he has enough of them, he will let everyone know when the book is ready. If you submit a recipe, he said he will send you a free copy of the ebook. If you have any questions, please send him an email at email@example.com.
