Her name is Lola and she's not a showgirl (mom was tho). And she for sure has never been to the Copacabana! That's a nod to Barry Manilow's song, Copacabana :) No, Lola is just a puppy and she belongs to my daughter and son-in-law.
No card today - just me rambling.
David and I just got back from a GREAT time in Des Moines, Iowa where we spent some time with my middle daughter and son-in-law. This is the first time we have been able to get there since she moved 2 years ago! More on Iowa later.
This is Lola, their new puppy at 8 weeks of age. Doesn't she look like a stuffed animal?
And at 10 weeks. She wouldn't stand still so this picture is not the best.
She's a Tibetan Terrier (which isn't a terrier, go figure), and a little sweetheart. But I had forgotten how consuming puppies can be! Tibetan Terriers get very hairy but they will keep her clipped since they have no desire to show her.
Besides spending time with Lola, we went to the Iowa State Fair which was so much fun - overwhelming, but fun. I was good and only had a baked potato to eat. I get the feeling that most people go to the Fair to eat! The next day we went to the Farmers Market in Des Moines and that was even better! We sampled so many different foods and saw so many interesting things. Lola came with us and she was like a Rock Star. She loved all of the attention and met lots of people and dogs.
David and I were pleasantly surprised by Iowa. The people were soooo friendly which we loved. And we thought the area was beautiful. We've heard (unfortunately) some negative comments about Iowa and corn fields, but really the Des Moines area was not like that at all. There were trees, rivers and lakes and while there aren't any mountains it certainly wasn't flat and boring. Des Moines is my kind of city and I do NOT like cities.
It was really hard to say goodbye but we will all meet up again for Thanksgiving in Ohio. So after a long airline delay due to issues in Chicago, and a missed plane connection in Chicago, we finally got home at 2:00 in the morning! It's good to be home with my own dog and cat (and my own bed) but it sure was wonderful being with family.
I am hoping to do some stamping this weekend. Stay tuned.
Thanks for stopping by and listening to me ramble.
