Best sister ever (best brother, too!)

Today is my brother and his wife's 4th anniversary.

Christy blogged a love letter about Jake and I wanted to share it because it goes to show how loving she is, how devoted he is and why I'm so incredibly lucky to have a family like this. Read the post and pay attention: this is how a strong, Christ-centered marriage looks. By the way, when she says they miss each other when one of them leaves the room... she's not exaggerating. They're really that crazy about each other. Given how incredible these two people are together... well... I just can't wait to meet the tiny version of the two of them put together.
I love you guys so much! Happy Anniversary.

Did I mention I'm going to be an aunt?

Family Dog Takes Bullet to Save Family

The family has no idea why the man broke in or how their dog, D-boy, survived.

By Amy Lester, NEWS 9
OKLAHOMA CITY -- A family dog made a lifesaving move when the family needed him most.
The dog's more than a friend, even more than a companion and family members said he's the reason they're alive.
The family's hero is their dog, D-boy.
Roberta Trawick was sitting on the couch when a man busted in, through the front door.
"He came in, pointed a gun at me and said, ‘Get down on the ground'," Trawick said.
The next thing Roberta knew, her dog ran in from another room, ready to attack.
"I was too scared to move, I didn't know what to think," Trawick said.
But before the dog could get a hold of the intruder, the man started shooting.
"I seen him shoot the dog twice," Trawick said. "He shot him once in the head and he was still going after him and the guy shot him again."
D-boy was shot three times, altogether. The intruder, apparently spooked, took off out the front door.
"It is amazing, it's amazing that he want after that guy, and that I still have a family," family member Angelic Shoemaker said.
The family has no idea why the man broke in or how the dog survived.
"The vet said if it wasn't for his hard head he wouldn't be here," Trawick said. "He's got a hard head."
That hard headed dog was determined to protect his family, and a family that owes a debt of gratitude to their four legged friend.
"I'm sorry my dog got shot, but I still got my family and we still got our dog," Shoemaker said.
The family now faces another obstacle. They don't have enough money to pay the dog's medical bills. So far, they owe around $1,500.
Police are still looking for the man who shot the family dog. If you have any information, call Crimestoppers at 405-235-7300.

To donate to D-boy, you can send a check to:

Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Hospital

1800 W. Memorial RoadOklahoma City, OK 73134

* Checks can be made out to VECCA and please add D-boy to the memo line.

The phone number at the hospital is 405.749.6989.

I spoke with the vet tech and she says D-Boy has basically made a miraculous recovery.

Awesome Vintage Advertisements, They're Baaa-aaack

Note to self: Never, EVER use the word "stump" in the marketing of a product. In fact, just don't ever say the word "stump" for any reason... or "nub". And under no circumstances should the words "bloody" and "stump" or "nub" be used together. Although, "stump-nub" or "nub-stump" are perfectly fine and, I daresay, a bit charming.

There's a "Stammerers' Guild"? NO! No way. This is just too easy! Okay, I'll bite...
Hmmm... I wonder how long it takes to call their meetings to order or worse, pass a motion?...

New scientific research brought to you by the highly respected medical journal, Duh magazine. All you gotta do is ditch that lame blazer and don a sporty sweater with conspicuous P on the chest and you'll blend in with all the cool kids! And don't forget your Trapper Keeper, chief. I've gotta say that I'm truly impressed with the detailed data provided here to back up the study. I guess you just have to take their word for it. Although, the person who wrote the ad apparently was too old to learn how to capitalize the beginning of all sentences.

Look at Mr. P Sweater. He seems to be grabbing Sally Sue's hindquarters there. And check out the couple in the background. They both look like they're getting handsy. Hey, you're never too old to have "needs."


Check out the chick whacking away at her stanky feet with a machete. Are you kidding me? That can't be sanitary.

*nervous twitch*

P.S. Corns have "roots"? Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.


I think that if you start talking things over with your headache, chances are that headaches aren't your biggest problem.

Look directly into my eyes. I... will KEEL you. Keel you until you are dead.
