Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for stopping by as i always appreciate your visits. We have no definate plans as to vacation yet but if i get my way, i want to travel to the Yukon. I have never been out that way and would love to go. Byron has been there but then again, i don't know where he has not been ,as where there are highways., he's been there .Ha-Ha. Of course we would be traveling by motorhome,no matter where we go as my boys have to come with us as i could not enjoy the holiday without them with me.Ha-Ha. I will let you know where and when we decide for sure what we are doing.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

Hi Charles and kids. I am so sorry i have not responded to your posts earlier. I have been trying to get caught up with things around here as we are planning to do some travelling this summer .The high school kids start their full time volunteer program at the end of next week which will allow me to get away. Of course Granny, Kim and Kayla will be staying on the grounds and holding up the fort and supervising things. Samantha and Taz will be supervising the yards i hope.Ha-Ha. Maybe when i take my brat"Tyson" with me they will do a better job then they did yesterday.LOL. I was not paying attention to them as they were out in the shelter yard and i could hear them by the building so i thought all was ok. I thought they were just playing around on the deck and yard as usual. We have a little outdoor run next to the building for dogs that need Lawrence's help before we can place them with the other dogs. WELL when i went outside to check on them, "Tyson, Samantha, and Taz"  had dug a "basement" under that outdoor kennel. Ha_Ha. They were all covered in mud and exhausted as that was alot of digging. HA_HA. I just stood their and could not help but laugh at the three of them as their expressions on their faces were  priceless. They were so proud of their work. HA-HA. Of course i called Granny and Kim to come and see the "beautiful" work the kids did. ha-ha. I think my Tyson was the leader in that adventure as he just loves to dig. He dug out all my young cedars  that i had planted this spring at home. Ha-Ha. Luke was also a digger, so i think he has been whispering to Tyson on what to do to make me laugh. He certainly has alot of Luke's habits.Ha-Ha. Needless to say ,Byron has some work to do, he has to dig proof that outdoor kennel now. He will have to pour a cement border around it like the outdoor runs have around them.

I am on my way to the shelter. Thankyou for all of your postings and kind words as usual.. Have a great weekend.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

we came to bring love and hugs night. charles we will always watch and acknowledge signs. butler is by me i know that i just miss her. when someone brushes signs off as oh can not be's? they miss out and to ignore them is not right our loved ones use alot of energy to reassure us. the ney sayers i have no time for...i know when my daughter uses a guide or herself to reach mom. :)

love and hugs

jules and butler

 Hi Charles, Sammy, Gabby and Bob!! Thanks so much for stopping by and also for the kind wishes on Jessica's birthday. These fur babies, no matter how long they've been at the Bridge, always stay close to our hearts. Glad to hear you are having some rain your way, I do hope it helps with the fires, that is so sad to see happen to the forests and wildlife. Hope they get it controlled soon. We have been having warm temperatures here, about 90 all this week so far. Juji is doing great, but she is not as good with the warmer temperatures as I thought she'd be and likes to be indoors on these hot days. LOL her big sister, Saada, would sunbathe even when it was 100 out! That was unbelievable!! Hope Cupcake and Xander are doing great and enjoying the summer :) Take good care and have a nice weekend... Sending hugs to all. Gina

Charles  Sammy.Gabby and Bob M.
Thank you for stopping by.  some one needs to talk to the Rain Dancers.
We have gotten nothing but heavy rain and Thunder for the last few days and even  when they say Sun  it rains downpours.

We also have been under tornado warnings and had the effects of the Earth Quake out of Canada yesterday. no damage in this state.
Hope Cupcake and Xander are well. Just a idea   have you ever looked in to a canine cooler for your kids   Kia loved hers and spent hours on it this time of year. Have a good weekend and hoping you get rain

06-24-2010 2:31 PM -- By: glenise,  From:  

Hi Charles, handsome Sammy, precious Gabby and sweet little Bob M,   Yes, weather is certainly strange and getting stranger every year. We have been getting downpours each nite and tornado warnings. Sudden huge bursts of wind that look like a hurricane is coming for a few minutes, then very calm.  So strange. The  thunder and lighting extreme here. Fried parts of a tree in one area close by. Knocked out power couple times, but only for couple hours.  Then knocked out main phone cable within couple of miles range, us included. No landline service for day and half.  The internet cable they said is on different line, so unless more power outages I still have that.  Thank goodness for the cell phones, 'eh?  I understand you needed or did need moisture pretty badly over in your area, Charles?  I really wish we could send tons of ours over there......ha. Wouldn't that be great?  Would help everyone out. My husband works with railroad and I tell you they are so sick of all the rains. Causes alot of problems with the tracks.

I understand you are having fires over in that part of the country. Sounds like they are hard to control. The smoke must be terrible. And I feel for all the wildlife. I certainly hope you and Cupcake and Xander are a distance from them and keeping safe. Let us know.  Thanks so much for your nice visits.  glenise & daisy

Dear Charles, thank you so much for your kind note. I've been busy with the census work (which was something else. a boxer bit me but I went in yards with pits and all they did was giggle and roll around on the ground) The owner of the boxer turned her loose on me so I blame entirely.

I have a head cold and feel like crap. I just got up from bed and am going to drink some juice and go back. My granddaughter has it and we spent 3 days together last week. Probably picked it up here.....It is so hot here. My gardens are so sad. The jalapeno and bell peppers are not doing well. It is too hot for them. Faye's blanket garden is great. It is very pretty in the mornings before the sun hits it.

Thank you, for checking on me. You and Denise are good "nurses". Love, Pat, Jack, Pearl, Timme, MIkee, Lita and Clem and TWO huge turtles!!

06-23-2010 9:18 AM -- By: Lauvern ,  From:  

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for stopping by and your kind words as usual. So you need some rain? Hmmmmm I wonder if i could send you some by UPS or Email or something.LOL. If it keeps raining here, i will soon have to bring out the boat and wear hip waders. We had eighteen inches in the last two days and are expecting more today. This certainly is a unusual year. We had a hot dry spell, then the rains,then another hot dry spell and now the rains again. One good thing about it is, it keeps the forest fires at bay. Of course my kids and the kids at the shelter love to go out and play in the rain which i allow them to do but when it starts to thunder or lighten, or both they are all back in the building. Most of them are scared of the thunder ,so it doesn't take much to bring them back in. Ha-Ha. Some of them are really afraid so i have anxiety spray on hand at all times which was given to me by a vet that volunteers at the shelter. Most of the time i just turn on loud drum beat music to mask the thunder noise and  close all the blinds on the windows. That seems to calm them. The cats of course are terrified so i take them in the basement of the shelter where it is alot more quiet.

Have a good day. Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.


06-22-2010 4:47 PM -- By: Maddie,  From: Sammy's kitchen  

-Maddie stalks through Sammy's back door, Caliya and Bob m in tow....

Sammy, clearing his throat:"ahhh, whats up guys?"

-Maddie puts down a box of writing paper, a fountain pen, some sealing wax, and a roll of stamps. "I just thought it would be nice for ALL 'us p i t  b u l  l  s'  to write home to our moms & Dads and let them know we are all ok." Bob m starts to speak- up but then squelches it...deciding that usually when he speaks up, Maddie gives him something to do, like over at Maddtique,how Maddie always wants him to put his paw up on the package, then she uses one of his long claws to hold the bow, while she ties a knot on a package, silly things like that....Bob M prefers to keep to the tradition of a cats independence......."So, anyway," states Maddie, we p i t b  u  ll  s NEED to write home, sometimes, they worry about us, you know..." Sammy is just staring at Maddie and trying to get Caliyas attention, to NO avail, as Caliya is down in the snack drawer of Sammy's new sub-zero refrigerator pulling out a block of imported cheese......oblivious to the conversation....

Maddie begins writing: "to all the mom's & dad's back home, we just wanted you to know that all us p i  t   bu  ll s are doing fine. we love & miss you."   xo, Maddie, Sammy, Bob M, , Gabby, & Caliya.

Maddie lights a candle  under a small stick of sealing wax, and lets a huge, melted blob fall on the envelope, where she presses down hard with her solid brass 'M', sealing the envelope.....Satisfied, Maddie blowsthe candle out and attaches a stamp to the envelope.

Sammy, still scratching his head and staring at the pony-tailed, white fur- ball, m a d l y writing away an address with a fountain pen.......

"Hmmmm", thinks Sammy.....".Maddie, a  p i t b  u l l???" Bob M, a  p i t  b u l  l??????? I  DO think this MUST be SOME sort of NEW 'umbrella- term'...."

Hi Charles and kids. Thankyou for stopping by and your kind words as usual. I am sorry to hear  that you could not get near your property on Sunday due to fires. It sounds like you had a great day with your kids though. I know Sammy,Gabby and Bob M were with you also. Hopefully they get them fires under control soon. We have not had any forest fires near here yet but we have had alot of rain which helps keep the forest fires from starting up. There is alot of forest around the shelter so when the fires start ,they are a concern to us but we have plans made should we have to evacuate. Hopefully it doesn't come to that. We have been lucky in the past two years and i hope it stays that way.

Have a good day.

Sending hugs all around.

Lauvern and all at the shelter.

Please keep watch over Cupcake and Xander .. always let them know you are near and watching over them.

Sammy, thank you son for yesterday, Father's Day .. as we rode in "your truck" and your sister Cupcake sat where you sat and in the very same manner ... the memories flooded my mind of you and how it used to be.

Always know that your daddy loves and misses each of you so much.
