Good Morning Charles,Gabby, little Bob M and of course Cupcake and Xander. Thankyou for stopping by and sharing coffee and cake this morning. I am happy ,you enjoyed your Birthday and you are welcome as that is the least I can do,is to recognize your day.

How is the smoke and fire situation out your way? I have not had any updates as  Lawrence is away and he is the one that keeps me updated. They don't say much on CNN. It is going to be another hot day here today and for the next few days. The sprinklers are all on and the kiddie pools are filled so the fur kids will be happy and keeping cool. I might just have to run through the sprinklers with them to keep cool. Ha-Ha.

I am certainly looking forward to a vacation and hope we end up somewhere cooler. All will be back to normal tomorrow as Kim and Lawrence will be back from their vacations and then i am free to go.Byron will be home tomorrow also and has taken some time off. We will probably leave at the begining of next week.I will let you know when we decide what we are doing.

Have a grand day.

Sending Hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

hello charles. the talk around was that it is your birthday today and i wanted to wish you a happy birthday before the day got away on me. we had a hectic day today as four  new dogs and five new kitties came in yesterday and we have to try and place them in kennels where they are the happiest.that in itself becomes a challenge at times. i believe we have it right now at least i hope so. it takes these new comers a few days to get accustomed to their new surroundings. i see the fires and smoke in your area are easing up some which is a good thing.the weather everywhere has been so mixed up.we have had some extremely hot and humid days with a day or two cooler and more tolerable days in between. well i better go  help and get the shelter kids fed and give them some play time outdoors. i hope all is well out your way and  that you enjoy your day today. sending hugs to you and the kids.    doris and samantha

Happy Birthday
Celebrate your day in style
Happy Birthday
Tonight I want to see you smile
Your whole life is in front of you, you've only just begun
So Happy Birthday
The best is yet to come

Happy Birthday to you
The good things I could say about you are infinite
But I will only take a minute
To say the world is a better place with you in it
With you in it

Happy Birthday
You know just how to be
Happy Birthday
I'm glad you're you with me
To know you is to love you, to love you is to be blessed
So Happy Birthday
You deserve the best

Every time I ever reach out for you
You never let me down
Any time you're ever in need of a friend
I will always be around

Happy Birthday
You are everything that's good
You are everything that matters
I would give you the world if I could
You will always be a part of me and all that I go through
So Happy Birthday, dear friend
May all your dreams come true
Happy birthday to you

Hi Charles and Sammy, Gabby and Bob M .. YES, was fun, and we also got some of the rain ... lol but I never minded walking thru the drizzle ... thought of you when it was, someone told me that the Keys for the past 2 week they got more rain than they ever did since the month of January ... so not much of a tan either ... but the company was great!

Yes, Luna and all the fur babies watch over us all ... forever in our thoughts, always in our hearts. ((hugs)) Luna & her mom Nadine

Good Morning Charles, Sammy,Gabby and Bob M.

Thankyou for stopping by with coffee and sour dough bread "yum my favourite" this morning. Much appreciated! I have a late start this morning as I needed a couple of hours more sleep after the long day yesterday. It was a long but VERY productive day. I really enjoyed the day. I am only doing four classes this afternoon . I am going to the humane society this morning as we have a few empty kennels to fill. "We can't have that" when there are so many fur babies needing shelter.

We are happy to hear that you are finally getting some rain as well as that the smoke is letting up in your area. YESSSSSSS! The NM rain dance done by the Bridge kids and prayers  are working! I know Sammy is always watching over you as he gathers up Gabby, little Bob, little Luna,Butler,Dale,Luke and all my fur kids as well as all of his friends at the Bridge and leads the NM rain dance. We will continue to keep you in our prayers and hope for more much needed rain in your area.

Hello Cupcake and Xander. I know you must be enjoying the outdoors now as the smoke has let up enough for you to be able to enjoy. Be good as I know you always are.

Have a good day Charles and Thankyou again for your kind post as always.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Good Morning Charles,Sammy< Gabby, little Bob and Cupcake and Xander. Just stopping by to enjoy coffee and danish from Jules with you on this Monday Morning.  I hope them fires and smoke have started to ease up. they sure don't seem to want to give up. We are getting a much appreciated cooler few days. Although it was hot and humid ,this morning I woke up to a beautiful north breeze which brought the tempeture down to more what I like. I have ten hours of instructing classes today as I want to get caught up before I go on vacation. No definate plans yet but all the volunteers are in place and both of Doris's daughters are staying with her for July and August, so I will take my vacation while they are here. Lawrence will be back at the end of next week as will Kim and her family. After that I am free to go.

Have a good day and we will continue to keep positive thoughts and keep you all in our prayers in hopes that them fires ease up.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at Luke's shelter.

Hi, Charles!  Hi, Padilla kids!!!  Just dropping by to say hello . . . you have certainly been busy doing all those rain dances - Dale says he even taught you a version of rain rumba!  hmmmmm.......

Good Saturday morning Charles , Sammy ,Gabby and little Bob M and of course Cupcake and Xander. Thankyou for joining us and having coffee and cake from Jules  with us yesterday. Thankyou as always for your kind words.I know all here appreciate the kind and encouraging posts from you. For this, I Thankyou you again.

The fires and smoke out your way certainly don't want to let up.Do they? With the little rain you did get , maybe you will soon get a good amount. We will keep good thoughts and continue to keep you in our prayers.

We got a good downpour of rain last night after all the heat and humidity last week and it certainly was welcome as it has cooled things dpwn some for a couple of days anyway. It is suppose to be very hot and humid again starting Monday.

Have a great weekend and I certainly hope the rain that we got last night is headed your way.

Sending hugs all around.

Good Evening Charles , Sammy,Gabby and Bob M. Thankyou for the coffee and cookies  and your kind post as always. Much appreciated! I am happy to hear that the smoke has eased some for you. Yes it is very sad about the animals that have lost their lives due to the fires and smoke. So Sad!  We have had another extreme hot day here and yet another one expected tomorrow. I can live with the heat but the humidity is just aweful. Anyway I guess we can't change it so have to deal with whatever we get. Its a good thing we have lots of water around as the sprinklers are going all day for the fur kids. They all love it as that keeps them cool.

Have a good night.We will continue to keep positive thoughts in hopes that you soon get alot of rain so all them fires can be put out.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.



07-07-2011 5:07 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess,  From:  

Dear Charles, Sammy, Bob M and Gabby,

Thank you for stopping in to visit Princess. So few come anymore. It is disheartening as I treasure the friends I made here.

That said, I am happy to know your vacation went well and that Xander and Cupcake were in good hands while you were gone. Even though we have a reliable and good live in sitter come to our house whenever we must be gone, I worry anyway. These are my children and very dear to me.

I have watched with wonder as I see Sammy's image come into focus as Stacy posts updates. I can hardly wait for her to start on Princess.  

I hope the fires are not too close to you and am sorry to hear the smoke, ash and fallout is taking a toll on all of you. I ask for help for you everyday and hope it arrives sooner rather than later.

Thank you again Charles for being such a wonderful friend.

07-07-2011 10:47 AM -- By: jules,  From:  

mr charles thank you for coffee and cookies surely needed this morning. we are keeping up with the fires. hoping by the plant it gets contained more than 20%. it hurts our hearts that so many trees and those precious animals are gone. butler will continue her rain dance for you and the kids. know you are with us always mr charles.
