Meet Dempsey...

Dempsey is in training to become a "Helping Paws" service dog for an individual with a physical disability. He trains everyday, but he still has time to be a puppy and play! His favorite hobbies are meeting new people, looking for bunnies, and educating people about service dogs. Read more about Helping Paws at See more photos of Dempsey on today's "Daily Puppy".

Hope you all had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend!
Matt was home so it was great having him here for the long weekend! Here he is Saturday practicing his swing. I enjoyed watching him and getting in a little reading. (I enjoyed going barefoot on the cool green grass at the driving range.)
The Cedar Rapids Kernels at "Perfect Game Ballfield"- Saturday, a beautiful night for a ballgame!

The beer was cold, the game was great-thanks Matt!
A beautiful Saturday evening at the ballgame...Kernels WIN 14-5!
Look Sara--Matt's smiling in a picture!
Fireworks after the game...

Tonight it hit me as to why I like Gilles Marini so much--he reminds me of Luka! Yes, I still miss him. Thursday nights are just not the same.
And, even though Shawn Johnson is from Iowa...Gilles, you really should have won "Dancing With the Stars!"

Here is a new necklace I started this morning. It is still evolving with fibers, vintage metal circles, and antique buttons.
The large hole ivory buttons are actually antique undergarment buttons. (No, they were not mine.)
