Paris Thief

OK, the title of this post has nothing to do with the beginning of my writing, but please bear with me.

Dave, Kristin, Marley and Tucker came to visit this weekend. We were amazed to see how big Tucker had gotten in just a few weeks. Take a look:

Isn't he adorable?

The three boys had a great time playing out in the backyard, although Barker really isn't into playing with toys, as you can see here:

Tucker is all about the toys...he who dies with the most toys wins, right?

And it looks like little Tucker has won!

The duck was the big hit of the weekend......he made a rather obscene quack when squeezed, and Marley delighted in running around with it dangling from his mouth, so as to taunt his baby brother!

I have finally uploaded a lot of our pictures from our vacation on Squam to my Flick'R site, so if you go over to the Flick'r badge on the right side of the blog and click on it, you can then click on "Your photos" and then on "Squam 07" and you'll get an entire slide show of our week in paridise. Hope you enjoy it.

This was sent to me by my good friend Barbara, and I thought it might give you a chuckle:

Paris Thief

A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre.

After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings and made it safely to his van. However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and to make such an obvious error, he replied, "Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."

(and you thought I didn't have De Gaulle to send this on to someone else.) Well, I figure I have nothing Toulouse!

Cute Paris joke. I can see that the dogs had fun. We are taking Simba back to his real home today. It will be strange not having him race around the perimeter of the yard securing the area every time we drive into the yard. He's so funny. Oh well, I'm sure he will be back to visit.

Tucker looks just like a human baby in the fourth picture.

I have started checking the paper for poodles. They actually cost less than a JR mutt!!

Barker looks so regal and sort of out of his element with the other two.
