Texas Ski Resort

  Bearfire Resorts scheduled to open in the fall of 2009 has inspired us to plan a similar resort here. Our plans encompass a slightly smaller scale than the 527 acres in Fort Worth, Texas. The 22 story mountain of steel and concrete, because it is a structure, will be ranked as one of theContinue reading “Texas Ski Resort”

Bacon Bits

Pigs are smarter and cleaner than dogs, so the article said. Some are more affectionate than cats and make great house pets. Miss Piggy is an exception to that rule. Our pig is not a hugger but she does like to be read to. I  read an article to her  about the benefits to beingContinue reading “Bacon Bits”

Gang Related

It pays to be a member of a diverse group of friends. We consider them like family and who better to call on than someone who has shared trials and tribulations and understands what it’s like to lose a pet.

Better call The Sheriff

We stopped by Pete’s Pub on our way to the covered dish social. The whole group we called La Prensa was there.

She had been seen on severalContinue reading “Better call The Sheriff”

I knew the food would be awesome, we could call and ask if we could bring home a doggy bag. “WeContinue reading “Party Crashers”

Hungry Hungry Hippo

The article in Texas Monthly about the alligator pit located not far from us was fresh in my mind, but hadn’t  I  just seen them safely contained behind a concrete wall at the Zoo?
