Another Nice Weekend In The Books


The weather was absolutely perfect this weekend . Saturday Papa , myself and Miggs went to town to take Miggs for her summer spa day . She went in tail wagging saw Linda her groomer and hopped right up on to the table and sat there all ready and proud , So Papa and I left them all to it knowing Miggs was in good hands and will feel so much better after her pampering .  We only live 20 min away from a few towns we like to go to including this one so we picked up a few bits and pieces and went home and puttered till the groomers called 2 hours later . Oh I tell you I didn’t like being home with out my Miggs there it was an awful feeling even though I knew  she was at the groomers . I just didn’t like it one bit  though .

                                                   TADA!!  Here she is with her new summer doo !

Papa bought off of Kijiji  a radio alarm saw and  it is in perfect condition the guy selling it just didn't have the room for it any more , Papa got it at a steel to by brand new it would be well over $ 1000 he got it for $175  WOW !!!

JULY 2015 (26 of 87)

The only prob is they don't make them any more but they make parts and Papa called them and the company is sending all new parts for free so Papa will have extra just in case but he looks after his tools so it will last a long time .

                           Any who more photos of our Sunday and Papa the builder and his supervisor lol !

JULY 2015 (39 of 87)

Nothing like a supervisor getting right in your way lol ! At least she is keeping a close watch on the project just in case Papa misses something lol !

JULY 2015 (46 of 87)

            Tiring work being a supervisor isn’t it Miggs ! as poor Papa sweats like mad in the heat of the sun lol !

Nice summer do, Miggs...just in time for the hot weather.
I was sat outside with binoculars yesterday (can't do much else)...I could hear lots of bird activity,but couldn't see a thing.

Flowers are lovely, umbrella was a good idea! I know what you mean about not feeling right when miggs is not there, I am the same way when my Ellie is at the groomers.
