Dogs on Thursday

Happy Dogs on Thursday from all the Brits in Britknitterville! This morning I was able to get a rare photo of all three dogs together:
They're not exactly together, but at least they are close enough to get in the same shot. Emma, of course, is in her little nest that she makes in the sofa cushions. Here is a shot from the front on the sofa:
She smooshes the cushion down into a comfy little hollow, and she will stay there all day! What a life!

I've been off this week and a lot has been going on, mostly involving taking care of the sick! Mom is doing better, but still gets very tired after any kind of activity. She went to church on Sunday and it wiped her out for two days. We've been making meals and taking them over, and mom always greets us with a chorus of "Meals on Wheels!" The only problem is that mom and dad are not vegetarians and they think a meal isn't a meal without MEAT! Blech!

Dad also celebrated his 74th (!!!!!) birthday this week, and I took pictures of him building the perfect burger, but they were taken with my cell phone and were impossibly blurry. You'll just have to trust me that it was a work of art. A (not-so-heart-healthy) half-pound burger with lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickles, bacon, onion, green pepper, and anything else he could possibly fit into a bun. Yuck. I made my yummy broccoli spaghetti casserole, and to my surprise both mom and dad tried it, and liked it, even though there wasn't a scrap of meat in it. I just might turn them into vegetarians yet! Then again, maybe not.

Anyway, to make up for the lack of a birthday picture of dad, here is a recent shot of mom and dad from their trip to Vermont a few months ago.
And here is one of my favorite pictures...that's me with my head on dad's shoulder. Can't you just feel the love?
I'm incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful dad!

Happy Birthday Brit Dad! :) Glad your Mom is getting better...

Cute shot of all 3... lol. For our dogs its all about pillows, esp Zeus... he arranges them just so.

I love the head popping over the top of the sofa. Tsar does that same thing if he thinks anyone has anything to eat.

Glad your Mom is better. The picture of you and your Dad and your sister is wonderful.

How are you doing?

Good luck on the vegetarian thing. That sounds like a hard sell.
I love the photo of you and your dad. Yes, the love shines through.

LOVE that first photo, and the last. Happy birthday to your dad, continued good healing to your mom, and if I lived closer, I'd volunteer for a meat day!
