I am sure some of you are thinking a lot about
Halloween, haunted houses, costume parties,
and even scary movies right now.  Well guess
what, there is something a whole lot more
horrific lurking at my house right now.

When I got home from my 10 hour day of
hanging drywall, I found my wife standing in
our bedroom looking at her feet.  She wore a
rather hot looking red spike heel shoe on her left
foot and an old dirty sneaker on her right.  What
was worse, her closet door was wide open (this
is new.)  I know I have never looked in there
before.

My mouth fell open, and our new dog who stood
happily up on the bed licked my tongue.  No,
that is not the scary part, stick in here with me
while I finish.

There were no clothes in the closet, but it was
heaped with shoes and boots of every shape,
color and texture imaginable.  I am certain she
had at least 2 of every style known to woman
kind in there.

My face must have drained of color, because the
dog howled, then rolled over and played dead.  I
was trying not to show my terror at the unknown
expense of all those shoes.

“What’s for di-dinner?” 

“I don’t know.”  She slid off the red shoe.  “But I
baked a dark chocolate espresso cake.  That’s
what I’m having.”

The numbers are in and I am excited to say I
have had over 1000 reads on my hub articles.
The topics are covering a broad spectrum
because although I am a Master Drywaller, life
has so much to offer and I do not ever want to
leave anything out.  I certainly don’t want to
miss out on anything either.  Life is filled with
too many mysteries and opportunities for inner
growth and learning, I would be insane to stick
to one topic only. 

My time for blogging is limited, because I am
a working man after all.  I do not get the time to
blog here as often as I would like.  So I will make
my sincerest apologies to you for that.  I also
promise to blog something here every chance I
get, and read as many of your blogs as I can.

If life could grant me 5 wishes they would be as
follows:  pet wolves in my yard, a shiny new
motorcycle for every finger and toe, all the 
equipment I need for hunting ghosts,  time for
all my hobbies including ham radio, fishing,
making pottery, woodworking and star-gazing,
and last, but not least $4,000,000.00 (1.5 for 
me, 2 for Uncle Sam, and .5 for my wife to have
fun with) simply because I love her.

Unfortunately I am probably the worlds biggest
dreamer, as you can tell.  So I will have to leave
my fortune up to the stars and hope I do not get
smashed by an asteroid.  Meanwhile, I leave you
all with this wish: that you truly find many
blessings coming your way, and may the cosmos
carry love to you for lighting the trail ahead.

We were really blessed when we got Smokie. He was a rare and kind hearted fellow full of love and kindness. In all my experiences with Wolf Hybreds, he was extra special. Smokie was the caretaker of our little pack. He loved all of us and his kitty. I never knew a broken heart could feel like this.

After a few weeks of the house being too empty and quiet, we chose to jump back in the ring and get another canine. We adopted an 8 month old German Shepherd. He is absolutely beautiful.

“Guard” has re-lit the fire in our eyes and is certainly keeping us busy.

Smokey, we will never forget you nor will our love for you ever fade in any way. You are always with us little buddy.
