Happy Halloween

A little precaution never hurt anyone... As with any holiday or event, we need to think of our pets. That means no chocolate for your fur babies. And take extra precaution with your cats and kittens. Please consider keeping them indoors around Halloween. There's always the risk of the wrong kind of people looking to pull some kind of cruel pranks. So to cut down on such cases, it's probably best to keep your pets safe inside.

Boy do I have my work cut out for me, lol. I've been planning a Halloween video and time's running out. I foresee a lot of editing, cutting and pasting, and overlays for tomorrow night. We've had a lot of fun with it so far, and I'm really excited about getting it posted.

The weather's turned off chilly the past week... was starting to think Fall had been cancelled. But it's here now, finally here.
Been catching quite a few scary movies the past couple of days. Jeepers Creepers 2, and some ones on cable they showcased in last year's Horrorfest. They claim those movies are too explicit for a general crowd so they offer a ticket package just for them. But I guess by the time they reach cable they must have really been edited down, cause I don't think there's anything shocking about them. Either I've been desensitized or they really are lame.

That doesn't dim any expectations I have for actual Halloween night. A Ghosthunters marathon, followed by a live investigation at the Waverly Sanatorium. It's supposed to be interactive on the web again so that should be interesting.
Back to the puppies tomorrow, after a my weekend. I've been told it's gonna be a busy season from now till Christmas. So I'm psyching myself up for that.

Thank God my weekend is here now. I have a friend on MySpace who used to work where I do. I left a comment on his profile... "Please come back to the shoppe! At least long enough to slap some sense into she who must not be named." For the love of all that is decent, she really has to go. I just can't believe the level of laziness I deal with when I come in some mornings after her shift. She's left the most obvious things undone. It's been like that for as long as I've been there. She's moody, she's fake, she's a slob, and she knows damn good and well I don't like her.

I mean, I take pride in what I do. I try to make things look good. I take the time to socialize these little guys. I try to make their time here fun. And I give a shit. At least I give a shit. She'll do the absolute minimun she can get away with. I can't stand that. I guess you could say it's my pet peeve. Pun intended.

Maybe I'm just in a funk... I've been wanting to do the pictures for their site for months. I wanted to be their regular photographer for the new puppies and kittens. I've done it before, and I've done it well. But you can't rush these things. You have to take a ton of shots before you can get one good one. And you have to go through them all and choose the ones you want to use. But no, they just want to hurry up and slap any old picture up there no matter how crappy it is. Dammit! It could be a much better draw if they did it like I think it should be done. I mean, I look at those pics and then at mine and you can really tell a difference. I get the cutest ones, the ones where you can at least see their face, with some unique quality, some facial expression, some look in the eyes. The photos are so much better when there's some personality coming through. But no, they want to rush things, and that's one thing that can't be rushed. So I'm really kind of pissed off about that.

Please tell ten friends to tell ten today!
The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman.
It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle).
This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising.
Here's the web site.
The Breast Cancer Site
Please pass it on to everyone you know.

Am I really ready for this?

It was bound to happen...

I never thought it would be this soon, but I could see it was coming a long time ago.

My status will never be the same.

Meet my granddaughter, Mackenzie

That's right, I'm a "Gramma" now.

Lol, she is adorable though isn't she?

She greeted everyone in the early morning hours of Wednesday, September 26, 2007.

Happy Birthday, Mackenzie.
