|DONALD & DAISY|
Ok, maybe I could have picked a more complementary picture of my two wonderful GrandPugs, Donald and Daisy, but I found it too irresistible! I am so blessed to have these two in my life and Christy and Tim are under orders to let Gammy and I babysit them as often as possible!
Oh, alright Donald and Daisy, here is a better view of Donald with Christy and Daisy with Tim! Are they not absolutely adorable (the pugs aren't bad looking either!)? : )

I'm basically offline for a while. My trusty DELL has decided to call a permanent timeout, hence the question in the title! I am going to leave the dark side and I've ordered a MAC Mini from Apple but I probably won't be up and running for a couple of weeks because some of the things I wanted in it aren't "stock" items. Bear with me, "I'll be back!"
Love to you all and have a very happy Halloween!!!!

Allow me to clue you in ....... leaves clogging the gutters making old men (Gampy) climb ladders; having to play golf later rather than early in the day when its not so crowded (or you dress to the point you look like the Michelin Man!); dragging the golf clubs out of the trunk and into the office to keep warm overnight; dragging sheets outside to cover the weeds (sorry Gammy, I meant the flowers) in case of frost; I'd go on but I'm tired and need to take a nap!

Always a friend,

|Another week of exploring!!|
Mondays are sometimes called downers but I think that's malarky! Monday means a new week is beginning with potential adventure, the mystery of the unknown, and the joy of family! Kids have/are starting school, weather changes are afoot with the coming of fall, Holidays are looming ever closer, and human and animal continue to share that wonderful, magical bond. So hug one another, enjoy an extra treat and thank the dear Lord for these great blessings!

|Payton's Mom and Noodle-Nose herself!|
No golf today so I stayed in my office and something drew me to Christy and Payton's Pugnacious P site. So many wonderful memories, so many tears, such wonderful friends jumping in to support Christy. We are all lucky to have shared a pug's (or other of God's creatures) love and met one another via Bloggerville. I certainly am thankful for this wonderful world of characters! But most of all I'm thankful for the miracle of my daughter, and my angel Payton (Noodle-Nose)!

|My buddy Hank|
I'm in North Carolina for a board meeting of the Star Foundation, a military charity foundation that gives funds to small, grassroots charities that make a real contribution to needy military and their families. It's something that I know Hank would be proud of and I plan on putting some of my own money into the coffers in memory of Hank, a fellow Nam Vet. I have lost my Grandpug and now my best blogger buddy and all I can do is say my heart goes out to Hank's family. I rather suspect Hank is looking after Payton now and selfishly that gives me some peace. God blesses the pure of heart and those that live life true; Hank crossed the bridge with bugles trumpeting. Goodbye dear friend, please take care of sweet Payton! Gampy

The outpouring of love and prayers that Payton and her family has received is simply humbling, I don't know how else to describe it. For now I can only say a simple thank you from Gammy and I; Christy and Tim will do so in their own manner and time. I have never been prouder of Christy, Tim, and this wonderful family of the Pug world. Payton took on a terrible disease and brought it to its knees, she had a most happy life and gave all of her love in return. How much more blessed could we possibly be! :) Love Gampy

2. Name your favorite treat. Men humans aren’t any different than pugs….it’s BACON OF COURSE!!!!
3. What ticks you off? People who think I’m a dog – clearly I’m human with two legs and way less of a fuzz covering!
4. When you’re upset, what do you do? Golf, after that I golf and then I…..well you get the idea!
5. What makes you indescribably happy? When Payton’s smiles and jumps all over me being a happy Pug!
6. What do you do when you are excited? Pray I don’t have a heart attack! (Hank, can I say that?)

If you had seen bath time with Izzy, our Giant Schnauzer, you might all have a fresh (pun intended) perspective. Gammy called it a reenactment of WW III. I haven't yet convinced her that you can't have a reenactment of something that hasn't happened but she just rolls her eyes!
Anyway, Izzy took the idea of bathing as a personal affront. I would get into my bathing suit, pick her up (this was an 80+ pound beast with at least 60 joints on her) and unceremoniously put her in the bathtub and pull the curtain shut.
We would then proceed to see if I could get soap on her without losing a finger, hand, or arm. At least the blood drained quickly, being washed down by the shower hose! 30 minutes later she would jump out of the tub and shake 40 gallons of water all over Gammy's clean bathroom. Then, six towels later, she would leave the bathroom and gallop around the house running over anything man made, or simply man for that matter, who dared be in her path.
I, being of saturated mind and body, simply limped into the bedroom and collapsed.
Bathing a pug would be such a joy!
