Summer guests '09

This is Eddie. Eddie visited us for three days in June. He was one of our all time best house guests ever. He was quiet and slept most of the time. When he wanted to go out he let us know in a very family-friendly way. Outside he ran, jumped, barked and ... slept. He found a frog that he tormented until the frog got smart and dashed under the deck.

This is one of the many fawn that grace our backyard in the spring. They're lots of fun to watch as their mother watches closely too. She snorts and stamps her foot when she wants their attention just as any mom would do. They romp and play for a while then in an instant they're gone for the day.

I have no idea where this guy came from. He was alone so I guess he got away from his gaggle.

Here's Eddie's frog just before he took shelter under the safety of the deck.

Our fav. house guest again....relaxing. :)

Two of my favorite Penguin fans

These kids were students of mine and are children of one of my best friends. They've just finished their first year of college. This is how most of Pittsburgh felt Friday night!!

And guess what? They are twins! They have an older sister who I also had in class a few years ago and the three of them are as different as night and day....each special and talented in their own way.

I love to talk about my students.

Pittsburgh Penguins win The Stanley Cup!

Even though I'm a fair weather fan, it's lots of fun watching your hometown team win the championship.
