Take Me Out to the Ballgame

It is so much fun when family can get together and see a ballgame together. Here you see father and son and brothers-in-law enjoying the game. They are watching a college game where our grandson has been working at this time. You can see they are having a great time. It is so good for them to get to a live game rather than watch it on TV.

My Friend Rose

My friend Rose is 92 years old and will be 93 in May. She used to live right across from us and owns a Beauty Shop. I used to go have tea with her quite often. We had some good visits. Then she went to live with her son and his wife because she was getting feeble. I had not seen her in quite awhile but today she came to town. I went over and visited with her. She was as glad to see me as I was glad to see her. She has had a lot of medical problems but she is a tough little lady. I think she could live to be 100.

Making Faces

Our little great grandson just keeps us in stitches making faces. He loves to have his picture taken as you can see here.
They live on a farm now and just love it. Since the weather has warmed up they can play on their enclosed porch and it is nice and warm. A great place to raise children. We were able to be on our acreage for 21 years and the kids learned a lot there.

Online Casino

It is so much fun going to the local Casino to play slot machines for the day. I can only think of one thing that people have more fun doing and that is playing the slot machines in the comfort and privacy of their own home. Anyone who has gone to the casino and spent the day having some fun from their regular routine can tell you just how much fun they had there. There is just something about playing slot machines that is infectious and they draw you back again and again to relax and have a great time playing. Playing at an online casino is just as much fun if not more so. You win and you lose but it is all a great manner of recreation. However, to be able to play the slot machines at an online casino in your own home or perhaps at someone else's home online is very exciting also. Everyone who has done this will tell you what a great time they have playing online.

Police Dog Stabbed

I saw on the news tonight that a Police Dog in training was stabbed 4 times. Who would do such a thing. It is a beautiful young dog. I hope he isn't hurt permanently in any way. I sure hope they get the person who did this. If they have a grudge against the Police, what good do they think it does to hurt an innocent animal? There is just no figuring out some people.

How The Average Working Man Uses His DVR

Author: Dorsey Velasquez

As a person who loves to watch television, I would have to say that my DVR is one of my most prized possessions. Like many other hard working Americans, I have a long, busy week. The old job starts early and ends late in the day. Without my DVR, I would miss out on a bunch of cool programs and shows. My favorite shows to record are Top Chef and That 70's Show. When it comes to college football games, I use my DVR in a really cool way. I always fast forward through all of the commercials so that I get a lot more football action and less waiting around. Also, I try as hard as possible not to see who won the game before I start to watch the recorded program. I use my DVR on a daily basis to record some upcoming events on my directv. Whenever I get home from work, I go straight to the old recliner, flip on the television and watch some of my favorite shows or college football games that I missed during the day.

Estate planning is not always as simple as you may think, that is why you need an experienced Austin Probate Lawyer to assist you in your planning.

That is another reason why you want to enlist the services of a Austin Will Lawyer to make sure that your estate goes to those you intended it to go to. Sometimes, a person may die before they make their wishes complete or may be incapacitated before they can explain how they would like their business carried on in the future. Therefore, an Austin Living Will Attorney would be the one to assist you in making sure your wishes are carried out after your death. It is easy to fill out a simple form and ask questions regarding how to handle your estate so that it won't need to be sold to pay the taxes also. It pays to check into all these things now while you are in good health and in your right mind.

Savings Dogs Lives

During the recession, many dog owners found they could not afford to feed and take care of their dogs anymore. Many of these dogs are in California. Now someone is doing something about it. They fly these dogs to Canada where they can have good homes. In order to help keep the dogs warm they provide dog jackets for each dog. One of the great things about adding a store to their rescue project is that all the profits go to rescue these dogs, thus saving their lives. A good warm dog jacket helps to keep the dogs warm and healthy too. Funding flights from California to Canada provides the ability to save these dogs lives that have been abandoned by their owners. By flying the dogs to Canada, they are able to furnish them with warm dog jackets and find them new owners who will really care for them and love them. I have seen a great many dogs abandoned on television that have been rescued in similar ways. It is certainly a good deed done.
