I suppose you're right, Lynne. Cats are pretty curious creatures and there were a lot of things swimming around the boat tempting Sunny to take the plunge. He's okay, so we can laugh about it now...

We're glad, too, Shirley. Having a cat drown is right at the top of my worry list.

Good point, Bre. We didn't see any sharks, but there were thousands of other fish for him to go after. We'll likely never know whether he jumped or fell...or was pushed.

We can laugh about it now that we know the cat's okay. We're going to rig up some way for the cats to climb back aboard if either of them decides to swim again.

Splash one cat! We were both working inside and heard a splash, so Vickie went out to see whether it was a pelican -- those guys make a lot of noise when they plow into the water -- or a dolphin. As Vickie was searching behind the boat a couple... Continue reading

Thank you for stopping by. Please accept my apology for the empty site, but I'm taking this site down to facilitate my move to a newer, better server and hosting service. When I return, will load faster (your time is too valuable to waste waiting!) and the site will be more stable (so you'll have more up time). This process will take a short while (partly because I'll be working on it while traveling for the next several weeks), but I'm sure you'll be happy with the results. In the meantime, please pop over to MyHelpSource, where you can BUILD THE LIFE YOU'VE DREAMED OF ... 5-MINUTES AT A TIME for a quick dose of inspiration. Finally, please complete the form below if you would like me to add you to my list to notify you when I'm up and running again. See you soon! Loading... Continue reading

Southern Cross (Nordhavn 47) to the Rescue [Photo:] Here's an on-the-edge-of-your-seat sea story for you about tireless and daring efforts to save a Dutch-built 48-foot yacht, called Stormvogel. I love this story for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is that it features one of our... Continue reading

I am a big fan of using vinegar as a cleaning agent. It's inexpensive, safe for animals and humans, easy on the environment, versatile, and it smells fresh. Carolyn Shearlock, over at The Boat Galley, shared this tip from one of her readers and we're anxious to give it a... Continue reading

Image: tiverylucky | Check out these touching images. Notice how many bull breeds there are, especially American Pit Bulls and similar friends are shown here. It's a tragedy that so many are willing to just discard these animals. Today is a great day to rescue a dog! Check Petfinder... Continue reading

I am not what you would call a "dog person," but somehow it has fallen to me to walk our Tuffy every morning while she...well, you know what she does. She loves those walks and usually sports a big, goofy, ear-to-ear doggie smile as she struts around looking at birds... Continue reading

Fairhope Pier, Ala. - "Do people live on those boats?" July 2010. Planning for retirement, we were searching for a place near salt water. Our search brought us to Fairhope, Alabama, on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay. It was hotter than blue blazes and we were standing on the... Continue reading

Dog breeds come and go, and their relative popularity waxes and wanes as the tastes of dog lovers evolve. Which makes me wonder what sentiments are behind the shrinking appeal of these previously popular breeds: Irish Setters Scottish Terriers Collies Brittanys Cocker Spaniels What will it take to return these...

With thanks to our friend, Charmaine, for sharing this. Interesting story in the news today. It seems that a dog delivered her puppies on the side of a highway last night. She was promptly ticketed for littering. Continue reading

I just spotted this book and thought I'd share the tip. This looks like a wonderful read, the reviews are overwhelmingly positive (4.8 out of 5 stars at Amazon ), and we all know that none of us can argue against the wisdom of a smart [alecky] dog. From shelter... Continue reading

Thank you, Nicole. I love Giant Schnauzers. They're a great breed!
