My Dad called this morning, and said he has to go for another PET scan. He had colon cancer late last year, but the surgery and chemo got rid of it. He's been going every 3 months for tests, and now his numbers are up on the tumor markers. Last time that happened everything was okay. I'll just pray that it's okay this time, too. That's all we can do. Just give it to God and hope for the best.
May you all have a great day and a fun weekend!

I am tired of people dropping dogs off at my house! I actually own 3 dogs, 2 in the house and a pitbull outside. We have 9 dogs! About 2 years ago, my neighbors bassett had puppies. They followed her all over the country, and 2 ended up at my house. One of them got really sick and had to be put to sleep, but one is still here. She had puppies about 8 months ago, and I'm stuck with 3 of them! They are gorgeous dogs, but I don't want them. It is costing me a small fortune to feed all of these dogs. There's an old black dog that just showed up here about a year ago. He has arthritis and gets around slowly. He acts like someone mistreated him, but he lets us pet him now. The mama dog is at the vet right now, because she is being fixed tomorrow. I have no idea what that is going to cost me, but it has to be done. I cannot take anymore! It did cost $70 today, just for worm meds and flea meds!
Sunday morning, at about 2:30 am, I went outside to see why the dogs were freaking out, and there was a very small, very skinny puppy in my yard! I could have cried! I decided I would feed him for the weekend, then take him to the vet and let them give him away. They usually do this for $15 a puppy. Well, just my luck, they are full right now and can't take him! I'm at my wits end with the dogs. I used to love dogs, but now I can hardly stand them! I know it's awful to feel that way, but I do! It is wrong to drop your problem off at somebody else's house!
I'm sorry for the rant, but I just needed to get that off my chest!
I did make 2 new hardware store bracelets for men this afternoon. I needed them for my etsy. I also made a charm bracelet for my cousin, but it was raining today, so I haven't got pics yet. Maybe I can show you tomorrow. Until then, I hope you all are having a better week than I am! Later~~~

Well, I did it! I finally finished Tyler's cuff bracelet. It was a lot harder than I expected it to be! I made the center from textured brass, added a silver tube rivet, and a part from an old watch. That is surrounded by the nut I cut in two, held in plce with copper rivets. One side is copper sheet, with a brass and nickle patch riveted on. It also has a smaller nut and another old watch piece. The othe side is flattened nickle wire that is wrapped with flattened copper wire. It has 2 smaller nut tube riveted on and a tiny brass screw head soldered on.

Tyler took the ACT last month, and he made a 30! I'm very proud of him, but not surprised at all. He is super smart and has always made As and Bs. He wants to take it again because he says he can do better!
Have a great Saturday! See ya~
