We made memories we'll never forget. These memories are what THIS BLOG is made of! Enjoy them while we make MORE memories worthy of posting here for your enjoyment.

Tugging On My Lap


According to Cooper, there is no bad place to have a Tug-O-War.


He brought a toy right up on my lap the other day and wanted to tug with me.  



He's so cute, how can you say no?  He's really happy to play any game.


But when he needs a good work out, there is nothing like a good TUG.

COLD Snap In New England


It's been so stinking cold here in MA for the last week or so that we can't get warm.  I need to see about getting someone in here to perhaps do an energy efficiency test and see what I can do to combat this problem.


In the mean time... We snuggle.

Opening Buffy's Gift


We got a couple of things for Buffy for Christmas.  


I had them in a bag since Christmas.
  

Cooper would wonder about it often.




One day he couldn't stand it any more and he opened the bag, and the package with the bones in it.  He even chewed one of the bones.


By the way... he got bones too, but didn't chew them.  He likes the ones I got for Buffy better.

When Mama Stays Home Sick


I stayed home sick from work one day recently.


I almost never stay in my bed all day, but I did this day.




Cooper was happy enough to do this all day once he figured out that we would be here for the day.

Nap Attempt After The Boston Bike Show


Cooper was exhausted after the show.  Cooper was really happy to get to lay on my lap on the way home.  He fell asleep for a little while.  


How cute.

Boston Bike Show - Mama's New Ring


See what I got at the Bike Show?  There was a booth where they would write anything you wanted on a stainless steel ring.



I really love it!

Boston Bike Show - Women On Wheels® Booth


Here we are at the Women On Wheels® booth.  

Cooper was happy to get a drink of water here.  His Auntie Missy was very good to him.  He was very good while we were here.  



He got a chance to lay down on a soft chair for a while.  That's the life.

Boston Bike Show - Victory!


At the bike show, we checked out my VERY favorite bike.  A Victory Vision.  I really want to own one of these one day.  It's BEAUTIFUL!

One of the features of this bike is that it has crash bars under the bike that keep it from going all the way on it's side.  


Here Cooper is helping to demonstrate this great quality of the bike we will some day ride.

Boston Bike Show - Dallas' Parents


Cooper and I went to the bike show recently.  He was such a good boy for the whole day.  Within just the first few minutes of me being there I saw two people I know.  They're Women On Wheels® members from Maine. 

Do you remember Dallas?  If you're a long term blog follower, you might remember him from almost 2 years ago.  These folks are Dallas' parents.  


It was so nice to see them.  I don't know if I've seen them since the day Cooper and Dallas ran around together and entertained all of us.

Watching A Movie With Cooper


Cooper loves to snuggle.  All it takes is for me to sit still and he curls right up.





How perfect is it for him when I get interested in a movie.  Over an hour of me staying still for him.  He could care less about the movie.  He just wants to snuggle and sleep.  


No objections from me.

Pictures A Friend Sent To Me


Recently a friend sent these pictures of me and Cooper to me.  


They weren't both from the same day obviously.


But they both make me feel good.

Puppy Play Ground


Another donation of wood came our way.  


Cooper and I had the chore of stacking it.  


















He was a tremendous help.


See?


How did we do?

Want Mama's Lap


When the kids were here, my grand son Lucas got on my lap.



Cooper wasn't pleased that there was no room for him.


He tried to give me they 'Please Mama' look, but Lucas didn't want to move.  He was loving his Grammy.

Fighting The Chill After His Shower


Cooper and I took a shower on a cold day.


















The house was a little chilly because I hadn't been burning any wood in the furnace that day.  




 The best thing about taking a shower on a cold day in a chilly house is that we get really cute pictures of Cooper.

















All he wanted was to try to snuggle up and stay warm while he dried off.


How cute!!!!  I love this boy!

Logan Shoots A BB Gun


My grand son Logan got to learn how to shoot a bb gun.  


He was a great listener and followed ALL the rules of safety.


I wish I could have said so much for Cooper. 



I had to keep him behind us where he was safe, but he REALLY wanted to investigate with his nose.  

You can't investigate with your nose and stay out of the way at the same time.

Cooper is this white ^ blur
Good thing Logan paid attention to the rules since Cooper didn't.

He Snuggles With Mama


Look at my sweet boy.  He loves his Mama.


I scratch his face for him and he loves it.


When I stop he's just too comfortable to move.  I don't mind.  He can stay on me for hours.  I'll just spend that time loving him too.

Gotta Cut This Wood Mama - Part 2


 Well, here is the wood that we just cut.  It's in and ready for Cooper to climb on.


See what I mean?  He'll climb it inside or out.  He loves it!

Gotta Cut This Wood Mama - Part 1


We burn wood all winter to keep the house warm.  Cooper LOVES to climb the wood piles. 




We have had to cut wood and bring it in.  Cooper loves this activity.  He barks at the chain saw and follows me in and out as I carry the wood down cellar. 


Too bad he's too small to help.  I could really use a hand.  All he has to offer is a paw.
