Xanax, Please!

I love my dog, but I will not be getting a "Mommy & Me" tattoo on my ankle anytime soon. Of course, judging by the "eyes" on this dog, perhaps its owner didn't have a choice!

Can anyone say doggie Xanax?

Oh, So Fine at 89!

Today is my Grandma Norma's 89th birthday. It was a little over 66 years ago that she stood on this stage in Italy and sang to thousands of serviceman as a USO performer. (If you look closely, you can see a few men sitting in the trees hoping to get a better view of this 22-year-old songbird.)

And here she is last November on Veteran's Day. Her assisted living home hosted a special program to honor all veterans. She sang I'll Be Seeing You with my mom and sister and then showed off her storyboard of photos, newspaper clippings and memorabilia.

And to prove she can still sing after all these years, here's a short video of her serenading the tulips at the Dallas Arboretum.

Happy birthday, Grandma!

The Lex Mop

What does a girl do when she spills half her spaghetti dinner ALL over the kitchen? After uttering a profanity or two, she quickly reaches for her new revolutionary cleaning agent.

"Oh, Lexus..."

I LOVE spaghetti-all-over-the-kitchen day!

Forget the Swifter...Lexus can reach all crevices.

This totally beats my boring Kibbles and Bits!
