Hi Charles and kids. I just wanted to wish you a Happy Halloween before the day gets away on me. I have had the volunteer kids come to the shelter today as we had a special Halloween party for them. Lots of goodies and fun things to do.
I wanted to do something special for them as I always do at the end of Aug or first part of Sept. before they go back to school but due to circumstances,I was unable to do anything. They were all happy today with what we had planned for them so that's a good thing.
Take care and keep the furkids safe tonight as I know you will.
Sending hugs accross the miles.

Happy Halloween to you and yours, Charles!
Do you have trick or treaters at your house? I haven't had any here. My dogs and cats used to get very upset with the noise and the costumes. I always put everyone in a bedroom and played a radio so they couldn't hear the commotion as well.
How is Bentley? And Cupcake and Xander? I hope things are working themselves out. They have a good 'role model' in you and I know everyone will be okay soon.

WIth all of the activities across the bridge (TWO birthdays AND Halloween) Princess is in quite a state. She decided to be something totally different this year and has been wearing her costume the past two days practicing how to be a little ! Marquisea wants to go as a black cat and the cats, Jolean, Critter and Ms. Parker want to go as a dog (all of them in one costume! It will be quite a party and I know Sammy will be in the thick of it, flirting with the girls and having a great time while Gabby and Bob M sneak into the hors d'oeuvres. So if a little FUN mischief seems to come your way today know in your heart our furchildren are at play.

Charles - I certainly wish I was in Santa Fe with the wonderful cool and dry air. We have had a few coolish days but warming up again. I'm a New Mexico girl at heart growing up in Hobbs and visiting my aunt in Albuquerque. Way overdue for a visit. Missing my Liam everyday but loving my sweet Eamonn. Blessings to you and ALL your kids!

Hi Charles and fur kids - Thank you so much for stopping by to remember Saada on her Angelversary and posting your very kind message. Your visit is greatly appreciated! Hope all is going well and that all the fur kids are doing great, too. Hugs to all! Gina

EVIDENTLY, IN ONE OF MY "OLDER THAN DIRT" EPISODES, I RE=DID A CHAPTER, OR SOMETHING, AND FORGOT TO PUT A SECTION IN THE RIGHT SEQUENCE IN # 4. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN WITH PRINCESS WHEN SHE BRINGS THE SCARY RECORDS IN. I HAVE TWO # 4, AS YOU KNOW, AND MESSED UP. PAT
IS EVERYONE AS CONFUSED AS I AM NOW?
! Gabby walks over to Princess to see if she needs any help. Princess nods her head yes and asked if Gabby would help with dimming the lights at the right times to help scare everyone. Of course Gabby thought that was hilarious and said "I'm more than happy to scare these rascals". Of course Gabby means to turn the lights completely OFF and seriously scare them!

Charles, I burst out laughing when I got to the "pointing finger". I didn't know anyone used that method of discipline! And I say "uh-huh", really loud. I love the finger pointing because you get that look back that says "what?, I'm just looking or stretching or yawning."
Do you remember the fire at Taos that burned thousands and thousands of acres, in the 90s, because a man put his trash in a barrel, set it on fire and went to town to socialize? Hundreds of homes burned due to that one.
I hope you don't get smoke.
Bringing in wood, putting new hay in the hen house and dog house. The hens immediately got into the dog house and started flinging hay every which way! They crack me up. The dogs stood there and stared.
Stay warm. Pat

Charles, I am listening to Leon Russell and thought I would start rounds on Critters.
How is Bentley adjusting..more important how are Cupcake and Xander holding up with the addition to their household?
It was 46 this a.m. at 9:00. I brought more wood in and ordered a rick from a gentleman who cuts and delivers. It won't be dry, so I guess I'll put it in the shed that is on the 'garage'. The stove is keeping 3 out of 5 rooms warm.

Hi Charles and precious Fur-Babies, It was so good to hear from you. Dozer said thank you for the visit. So you have a new Mr Bentley, I hope things are going well with all Fur-Babies !!!!
10-25-2012 9:55 PM -- By: Gina, From:
Hi Charles and precious fur kids! It was good to hear from you. I don't get around as often on critters now, but I do keep all of you in my thoughts. I want to congratulate you on your new fur baby, Bentley! That is wonderful news, and I'm sure Xander and Cupcake will accept him, it just takes time and patience for sure. Would love to see photos of your new baby. Thank you again for your visit and kind thoughts. Take care and sending hugs to all.

Busy lately...thanks again for always thinking of Jetta and Marley. Make sure you say hi to Xander, Cupcake and Bentley for me. Sweet tattoo of Sammy btw!

Dear Charles, handsome Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M. Thank you so much for your kind post and always thinking of us. Your posts are shared by all here at Luke's shelter and are appreciated by all.
How are Cupcake, Xander and Bentley doing? I am sure all is being worked out and we all know with time and patience that they will be the best of friends, and in time be inseperatable."smile".
We are getting some freezing rain here today so who knows what the roads will be like in the morning. I don't like the rain at this time of year as it turns to freezing rain overnight if cool enough. I may have to skate here tomorrow morning but not sure if Tyson can skate. Ha.
Thank you again for your always kind posts and sending hugs through the northren breeze.
Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Dear Charles and Sweet Precious Angels, I am so sorry to hear of Lauvern's loss and sorrow. If she will agree to the password, I would so love to send her condolences. I pray all is well up north and that the temps are cooler there. I'm sending a plate of green chili enchiladas from Sofia's, a Socorro restaurant, for your lunch enjoyment today. Bless you for always being there for all of us. Love and hugs, Carol

Charles - I'm not visiting as much as I used to but wanted to visit the friends of Liam who helped me so much when I so desperately needed it. You and you, Sammy, Gabby and Bob M were such a blessing. Still missing Liam every minute of every day - but he lives in my heart and through people like you. We recently adopted a rescue cocker spaniel who, I am convinced, was sent to us by Liam. His name is Eamonn and he shares Liam's big heart and loving soul. Blessings Charles

Dear Charles, Sammy , Gabby and little Bob M.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your kind post as always. I know you are busy with Bentley as it does take time and patience to introduce a new kid to the household BUT I know with the love you have for your furkids,there is not a doubt in my mind that ALL will work out and you will all be one big happy family."smile'.
All is well here as we are all enjoying the cooler days and I for one am looking forward to the snow but hopeing it doesn't get too cold. Last winter was awesome but not enough snow as in many places the ground wasn't even covered
The holiday season is fast approaching which I am not looking forward to this year but I will get through it.
I was so happy to hear from our friend , Jules but I can understand being under the weather and not feeling like doing anything. I guess we are in the flu season now. I have finally gotten over my sinus infection after two batches of antibiotics.
Samantha will be spending the night with me as she wanted to come with Tyson after a day of nothing but play and mess up the piles of leaves as we tried to rake the shelter yard.They are both fast asleep on my bed but keeping one eye open to make sure I don't go somewhere without them.HaHa.
Have a good night and give Cupcake, Xander and Bentley a extra hug from us up North.
Sending hugs in the cool breeze.
Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

My Dearest Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M ... Dad just wanted to stop by and leave you a message. First of all, OH, how I LOVE AND MISS each of you so much.
As you already know, you have another brother named Bentley. He's a handful .. but with strict discipline and direction, he will be part of the Padilla brood. Cupcake and Xander did not like the fact that I brought another into the home .. BUT .. they are getting better at allowing him in.
Bentley does have some issues, though, but as I said, I discipline him when I have too. Please continue to watch over all of us .. especially Bentley and Cupcake and Xander ... please guide them and always let them know you are watching over them and taking good care of them.
Sammy, Gabby and little Bob M .. just know your dad loves and misses you so very, very much.

Dear Charles, Sammy, Bob M, Gaby, Xander, Cupcake and Bentley,
I am very happy to hear from you. I know you have your hands full so please do not feel you need to write. It sunds like the hierarchy still has some working out to do at your house but I am confident that it will. I can understand why Cupcake and Xander do not want to share their Dad just as I understand how Bentley does not want to share the person who rescue him. As soon as everyone is confident and feels secure about their home I image they will begin to settle down. Never easy but you did a wonderful and amazing thing and all of your children here and on the other side of the bridge as well as your extended critters family are very proud of you. Hugs to one and all.

Dearest Bentley: Welcome, welcome, welcome! I know you know this, but I wanted to tell you that you have a SAINT for a father. I know of no other father who has the generosity of spirit that your;s possesses. He has a heart that is pure gold and he keeps it open at all times. Open for someone, like you, who needs that last minute reprieve. Yes, your dad is one of a kind and here at our house, we feel so blessed and thankful that we can call him our good friend. We love you, Bentley. Pat and her big brood of new friends for you!!

Hi, Blessed Charles and all the Furbabies, including sweet new Bentley!!!So sorry not to have communicated in awhile. I haven't been on Critters in weeks!! But, I have never stopped thinking about you and Lauvern and all the friends and Angels on Critters who share my love for our Sweethearts. We couldn't bet on the Internet for about six weeks in late summer, provider issues, and then I just haven't gotten back into the rhythm of visiting Critters to leave messages and condolences. We are all fine. It is still very hot here at times. All five dogs are doing just great!!! I'm sending a big meal of Albuquerque's La Salita enchiladas to you for your Saturday enjoyment!! Hope all is well there, and that you are all having fun. Bless you for taking in another needy baby!! Love and hugs, Carol in Socorro

Good Morning Charles,
Wonderful news that your family seems to be getting on track. Those first days can be bumpy for sure. Cannot wait for more information. Where Bently came from , how you found him, what he looks like and all of those details. I know you have your hands full so whenever you can. HUgs to one and all.
10-18-2012 5:56 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess, From:
Dear Charles and GROWING family!
What exciting news. I hope you are managing okay and the three children are behaving themselves. It is an adjustment when someone new moves in that is for sure. I am anxious for an update and picture when you have a spare minute (HA! do any of us ever have that!?) After Cupcake, Stacy will have to do Bentley to make him official. Has Xander arrived yet? Lots of catching up to do after our trip so I will say bye for now.

Dear Charles, Sammy, Gabby, Bob M, Xander & Cupcake,
Our apologies for not checking in before now. I believe I let you know how my life has been a bit turned upsidedown of late. While I may not get to the computer as much as I like I am sure you know I alwys think of my family in NM. I often think of how blessed I have been to have met such wonderful and supportive friends here. I hope you have a great week.
We will be leaving for a week up in Victoria BC on Friday and I am looking forward to lots of rest and relaxation. Hopefully things will stay calm at home for that short time.
Hugs to you and treats for the kids!
