Angels in My Backyard



This, is what an angel looks like.



This, is a dog whose face I shaved. This, is not an angel. (Trust me on this.)




This, is the back of a bassett's head. Again, not an angel.



This, is what an angel looks like.


My point? These two people, Dawn and Les, brought kids to my house Sunday at one of the lowest points in my month, and cleaned my gutters and raked my backyard. I was quite surprised when I came home to find them there.


The bassett hound and muppet did nothing to help.
Bastards.


Thanks Dawn, Les, Charlie, Heather and Ian! (And thanks for nothing Luke Skywalker and Muppet.)

The Basset is named Luke Skywalker? LOL! That's too funny.

How wonderful these angels came and helped you out. I love when these things happen. I've been fortunate to have many angels walk into my life. Renews me faith just when I need it.

Whoot for clean gutters!

Sure do. Jack named him that so he could say, "Luke, I am your father" when he got him for his sixth birthday. And he did it too. It was lost on Luke. Bassets have very big hearts and very little brains.

I always wanted to get a big dog and name him Yonder. So I could say I was stepping over Yonder every time I had to step over him.

(Credit: That's an old Howie Mandel joke.)

Your kids are so amazing. I wouldn't be surprised if they save this planet someday.

Why couldn't Luke Skywalker simply call upon the "force" for you? Hmmmmm....

Leslie Langtry said...

I really need the force to be with me! Unfortunately, bassets are the second stupidest dog breed ever.

Aww, that was so sweet!

Please wish Mr. Assassin a Happy Veteran's Day from us. His service and your sacrifice is appreciated!

Thank God you have friends like Dawn and Les to help when you need it.
