Hey, guys -- Howie and I have exciting news! First, we're taking a long weekend and visiting the great folks we stayed with during his surgery recovery two years ago. Time sure does fly! We can't believe all the great changes that radical rebuild of his back brought our way. It's all good and we're so thankful. :)

We've got a favor to ask of y'all. A video I did of our dog Sarah begging for her morning coffee bean has made it to the "shaggy sixteen" of the Mutt Madness contest online. :carrot:

We'd really appreciate your votes for Sarah as she progresses through the brackets!

Go to my site at http://gardenwife.com/2008/03/17/sarahs-in-the-mutt-madness/ for the details. Feel free to forward this to anyone. The more the merrier!

I'll write more soon. Sorry we've been so scarce. We're still plugging away!

:) Kimberley

YAY!!!!!! You're here!! :cheer2:

I CANNOT believe that it's been two years since the surgery...that's crazy!

I will take a look at the video, and will most definitely vote for Sarah...( how old is she? Wondering if her name has anything to do with our Sarah?)

SO wonderful to see your lovely face...you know how much I miss you guys :)


Edited to add: OK, looking at her, I'm guessing the name is a coincidence? And.....voted for her...she's so sweet!

Howie's been blogging again and there's a funny one on there about something he found under the seat of our Jetta...LOL :blush:

Too funny :lol:

That's OK, my van is such a disaster area that you'd think I was cheating every day! There's wrappers and bags from all kinds of stuff. BUT, I haven't cleaned my van in months, and they are mostly from the kids...and bad things I did before I got back on the wagon!

Guess I should clean my van, eh??? :barf:

OOPS, I accidentally "unwatched" this thread...what timing, too. LOL

Great news! Sarah the :coffee: coffee-loving dog's made it into the Mutt Madness Energetic Eight! :carrot:

Even if you voted while she was in the Shaggy Sixteen, you can once again vote since it's a new bracket. They're supposed to announce the Furry Four at midnight on 3/31/08...Not long from now, so it's crunchtime!

So, please get those votes in and tell your friends...

I've set up http://vote.gardenwife.com so it forwards to her video.
