Frosty Paws

Posted on October 11th, 2011 by Jean

Last night at the grocery store, stuck to the Beggin’ Strips package, youngest daughter and I found a coupon for $1.00 off Frosty Paws – Ice Cream for Dogs! After the absurdity wore off, and we composed ourselves, we headed over to the frozen foods section and tracked down this new doggy treat.

We giggled all the way home with visions of offering hubby/daddy the doggy ice cream. Once in the door, we could barely contain ourselves. The dogs were happy to see us, and we were happy to peel the lid of the frozen concoction. Good thing hubby was doing chores and not sitting around waiting to be a guinea pig.
As the packaging promised, our dogs DID enjoy Frosty Paws! By the end, they were fighting over the empty cups, clearly jonesing for more.

As a one-time novelty treat that the whole family should get a kick out of, I’d say go for it. The dollar off coupon helped sway my decision. But at over $4.00 per box, I doubt we’ll indulge in the future.
Would you buy Frosty Paws for your dog?

Wedding Day Blunders

Posted on October 27th, 2009 by Jean

On Sunday December 21st 2003, Tom and I were married in our home, standing near our Christmas tree, with bare minimum of friends & family as our witnesses. One thing we didn’t count on was for the Reverend to be so hurried that he made a couple of mistakes. For one, he asked if I would take Rick. My husband’s name is Tom. Secondly, and probably the greater offense, the Rev. performed the dreaded White Rose ceremony.

Forgive me if you are a fan of the White Rose ceremony. Hubby and I did not request it, and couldn’t believe our eyes when those artificial flowers appeared. Two bogus, long-stemmed roses which must remain together as symbols of our love. If either of us were angry with the other, we were to remove one rose from the vase. Hold up! Vase? These plastic perennials were not getting their own vase! But I digress. Our partner would surely notice the single rose and clear the air.

Over the years the roses have endured much abuse in the hands of our two daughters. The girls have devised their own sport. Fencing with flowers. Invariably each night I mend the flowers and place them atop my dresser mirror.

Somehow the flowers have weaseled their way into my heart, and as strange as it may seem, I am comforted when I see them together. Perhaps they do represent our life. Exhausted and abused by our children daily, finding refuge in our bedroom each night.

Our Wedding Day

Haha! The White Roses made it into this picture!

• What happened at your wedding that you didn’t foresee?
• Are you a fan of fake foliage?
• How do you know your partner is miffed?
