Tuesdays Tails


Okay here we are on Tuesday.  It was Disco's birthday last week or at least the one we made up for him - he was a rescue dog. Now when we were in Roswell last week - we bought him a miniature cake . It was about two inches across and one one and a half tall.  But it does look like a cake.


Now he was thrilled!  Grandson had him up on the table (we were not happy) and Disco took the treat and did not have any intention of sharing.




We got him off the table and he went to grandpa's chair and made a nice mess there.  lol


Okay a duck is an animal - Donald Duck - the  first week of summer daughter and  grandson went on a cruise and to Disney.  This was Disney of course.


And this was on the cruise - swimming with the dolphins - a chance of a life time.  The dolphin kissed him.  They had a great time.  My daughter tries to take him on a vacation every summer.


And now to end with a couple of my bird pictures:


And his flamingo and mine.




THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:



Okay maybe you are not a great singer - doesn't mean you shouldn't sing.  And sing with passion.  And if you laugh, laugh with passion, if you dance, dance with passion, if you live, live with some passion.
Feel it - sense it - live it - enjoy it - let go of  yourself - hear it - look at it - smell it - taste it.  Sure not all the time - no one can do that - but can't you do it once a day?

That look on his face shows he's not sharing his cake with anyone! The cruise sounded wonderful- so glad they got to go~

I cannot carry a tune, but that doesn't stop me from singing along with the radio - with passion, too, I might add! ;-)

I used to have a bird feeder and need to get another one, I think ... I miss seeing the birds at the feeder.

Funny you should mention singing. I was singing coming up the road yesterday and again this morning as I was getting the car ready to tow!!! And YEP..I cannot sing!!!
Love the pictures of Disco but especially the grandson and being kissed by the dolphin, not quite as impressive as when he flew the plane, but IMPRESSIVE!
Disco and birthday cake! HAHAHAHAHA Good on you.
Love from Virginia as we leave...

Debbie said...

You made up a birthday for Disco...
That's just cute to me.

It looks like the vacation was just wonderful! I am ashamed to admit that I would be too chicken to swim with dolphins. How silly is that?

I am, however, not afraid to sing out with passion and make a fool of myself in church. That should count for something.

Cheri said...

Been trying to go on a vacation for 7 years...ask Kelly if I can be her kid for one summer. LOL

Miss Debbie said...

When our guys seine for shrimp at the beach, the dolphins come along side to try to get to their catch. They have actually torn the net! They aren't too cute when they do that!! :-) Glad your grandson had fun!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Happy belated birthday Disco!!

Beth said...

I can't carry a tune but that doesn't stop me from singing out loud on occasion.

I think it is so great that you made up a birthday for Disco. His cake looks good enough to eat. ;-)

Happy Birthday to your dog! I would have not enjoyed him on the table or making the mess on your hubby's chair also! I enjoyed your post from Monday. All the pictures and the cute sayings of your day. I didn't know there was chocolate mint either! I may have to try and find some to plant! Enjoy your day Sandie!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Happy Birthday Disco!! Bet he's wondering why he isn't getting a treat like that everyday!
what a neat shot of your grandson with the dolpin.
See ya!!

Jill said...

That cake is just too cute. Looks like it was mighty tasty too!

My sister in law swam with the dolphins several years ago. I'm envious of she and your grandson!

BelovedBomber said...

The poor people in front of me at church...I can't sing but decided God made my voice and would like to hear it :)

Pamela said...

Oh my...at first I thought it was YOUR treat that he had a go at it. Looks like he enjoyed being a year older!

That corgi :) said...

happy belated birthday Disco! What a cute cake you got him, Sandie; I bet he did enjoy it! I think it is neat that your daughter schedules yearly vacations with her/GS. That time away I'm sure is a great one for all, especially with the cruise with Disney! That looked like fun!

betty

Mary said...

That is a very cute cake for Disco. Lucky dog, I'd say. I'm so glad for their vacation, that is making great together memories. I totally agree about the singing...and I know sometimes mine is best listened to by only me! hehehhehe

Maple Lane said...

That's the cutest cake I've ever seen for your sweet dog! John's childhood friend/wife went on a cruise and she swam with the dolphins, too. Great photo of your grandson. Enjoy your day.

Debbie said...

Looks like Disco celebrated his birthday in Style. The grandkids didn't do so bad on their trip, either.

I can't sing. Yes, others laugh passionately about my singing....but still I sing!!!

Have a great and blessed day!

Terri Buster said...

Looks like Disco did it up right for his birthday! The cat actually looks like he was sucking on a lemon instead of singing! :) Have a great day Sandie!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Love the cake for Disco. Charlie has a birthday coming in Sept. I'm going to try to find a happy song to sing today. Hugs, Linda

TexWisGirl said...

A Quiet Corner said...

What a great little cake for Disco, Sandie! I sing my heart out!!!...:)JP

Jane said...

This was a fun blog to wake up to today. The cookies stealing and swimming with dolfins. The cat with great beauty, and you for blogging. Thanks...

Lynn said...

Awww! So cute - Disco and the cake. Love those yellow birds and the cute grandson (as always.)

Nonnie said...

My Trudy (also a rescue dog) would love the cake! Great idea.
What a cool thing for your grandson to get to swim with the dolphins.
The birds are lovely.
And I love to sing ... especially when I'm alone in the car.

silverthoughts2 said...

Aww, that's cute that you celebrate Disco's birthday. That treat looks yummy! Well, if you are a dog of course...

We never really celebrated our dog's birthdays aside from giving them extra pats and hugs and kisses...and maybe a few extra table scraps.

barbara l. hale said...

Happy birthday to Disco who is one lucky dog!

Cranberry Morning said...

What great photos!! And how big a mess can such a little dog possibly make? hehe Have a great day, Sandie!

Helen said...

I'm singing or humming all the time, or so I'm told! When I visit Roswell it's such a treat to be within walking distance of Canton Street and all of its charm.

Cher' Shots said...

Singing means you're happy ~ Sing away. Nice pics of the happy pup and happy kids. Makes one smile along.
'hugs from afar'

Paula said...

Glad Disco had a nice birthday. I can't sing but I do sing in the truck on the way to the ranch. The same somg over and over and over. Good thing John doesn't hear well, huh?

Nice shots. Happy memories. Thanks for sharing. Susan

Belated "Happy Birthday" to Disco. Every dog has his day; Disco is no exception.

And it's looks like the holiday was just "ducky."

Blessings and Bear hugs!

mare ball said...

Dee said...

You know how to make us smile...love Disco's cake and that he went from the table to his grandpa's chair. I probably sing like this kitty...but passion IS what it's all about. It was nice that your grandson got to enjoy Disney and the dolphins...good memories for him. :)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Looks like Disco loved the treat!
Love all the pictures you shared.
Also I was just looking at all of the family photos at the bottom of your blog. I hadn't noticed all of them before. Fun to see everyone. Love, Debby

I sing too when I'm alone. But not as much as I used to before the New Hampshire choir director told me that I had a bad ear and that he didn't want me in his choir. I had been in the choir and the men's chorus at our old church in El Paso.

SquirrelQueen said...

Happy Birthday Disco!
Rescue dogs (and cats) are the best. Looks like Disco enjoyed his cake.

Swimming with dolphins is on my wish list. That would be an awesome experience.

I can't carry a tune but it doesn't stop me from singing along with the radio.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Happy Birthday to Disco... Bet he loved his treat.

Looks like daughter and son had a great vacation... I'd love to swim with the dolphins.

Love your Goldfinches.. We have lots and lots of them this year...Pretty little birds.

About your thought for the day: Just remember to make a joyful NOISE unto the Lord... ha ha

Hugs,
Betsy

I would have been tempted to taste Disco's cake!

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I am at last getting here some days there seem to be so many blogs and so little time, well on the days when I leave the house and do stuff in the "real" world .......lol

Love the pink flamingo very nice and as for the thought of the day well what can I say other then I do living with passion......

Oh I have always like Donald Duck much more the Mickey Mouse......lol

Renae said...

That looks just like the goodies from "Anything Bundt Cake". That's just not fair,right or good, is it? Dogs get that good of goodies? lol

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

A birthday party for Disco! How cool is that! I love your photos, Sandie. Love the shot, too, of your grandson and the dolphin. Dolphins are smart creatures. Hope your week is going well. Take care.

The Café Sucré Farine said...

I love this post Sandie but I'm not so sure about that last part; my kids have told me that I should stick to cooking, not singing! Of course it doesn't help me that my husband has the most beautiful tenor voice ever! Ah, maybe in heaven I'll be able to sing!

Nancy Claeys said...

Happy Birthday Disco! I wouldn't have shared either. :)

TARYTERRE said...

Looks like Disco had a GREAT day. HAPPY HAPPY Birthday to him. QWhere'd he get that name? I LOVE it. Your grandson is lucky he got to go to Disney. Bet it was fun to be kissed by a dolphin. Cute his and her Flamingos too.
