Our New Pets

That's right folks. We are the proud owners of two goldfish.  Darby and Tutu.  They reside in Halle's room. And to say she loves them is probably a gross understatement.  She talks to these fish like they are people.  "Look at my hair"...."Good night fishies"....."See you in the morning".  You may be wondering where we came up with such clever names.  Well....Hal and I were having a conversation about naming them on the way home for the pet store.  She wanted to name one "Dorothy" Elmo's fish.  I wasn't so keen on that.  But, I did start thinking about "The Wizard of Oz"....and Dorothy and Toto.  But, then my brain went into overdrive.  One of Halle's most favorite Veggie Tale's DVD's is "The Wizard of Ha's". Which, as I'm sure you've guessed, is a spoof on "The Wizard of Oz".  AHA. The little boy in the movie is "Darby" and his companion, not a dog, but...a Pig....named, that's right folks, "Tutu".  Perfect.  Just like the pink and purple rocks with the matching plant.  Sigh.  You can't win them all, right?
So....the online silent auction is now open and the bidding has begun.  I don't want you, my bloggy friends to miss out.  Hop on over there and bid on your favorite thing. us bring home our baby!

Adoption Fundraiser Update

Well, we changed things up a little.  We just really did not get enough response on our auction/dinner.  Tickets were not selling and we were getting anxious & nervous.  So, we made the decision to change to an online auction.  This will begin on Friday July 27 and run for a week.  You can bid from your own home and do some window shopping before.  Maybe even a sneak peek??  We'll see.

Silly Sunday!

Because....sometimes we all need a laugh....and let's face it.  Tutus work well as wigs & hats too!
