 WE'VE BEEN FLEECED
Part II

Hey Hounders,
Spring is when the alpacas at Sorbie Farm get their annual shearing.   Mom was over with John and Sarah Hanna all day Sunday helping with the shearing of 30 of their 32 alpacas.  Sophie brought back some photos that we thought you might like to see.  Just click on them one at a time to see the enlargement.

 
 


 










JENNY'S HOUSEHOLD HINTS

Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawersand your clothes will smell freshly washed for weeksto come. You can also do this with towels and linen.

This has been a very exciting week! I am eager for tomorrow to come so I can try out a new recipe. If I can talk dad into buying a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with a chocolate moose.

STAND-UP BORU
  An elderly couple in their nineties  are both having problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember  ..
  Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks.
  'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?'
 'Sure..'  
 'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks.  
 'No, I can remember it.'  
 'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so  as not to forget it?'

 He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.'
 'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks.  
 Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!'  
 Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes,  the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. She stares at the plate for a moment.
 'Where's my toast ?'

Those alpacas sure are skinny under all that fur. Carrying all that weight must be hard work.
Thanks for the tip.
Love Ruby & Penny

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

PLEASE HELP SPONSOR A SENIOR OR SPECIAL NEEDS GOLDEN

CAN'T ADOPT; BECOME AN ANGEL.
So many Senior and Special Needs Goldens do not find "forever homes". Many of these dogs have above average medical needs and costs, are maintained on "special" diets, or have other extraordinary needs. Your donations can be targeted towards a particular Senior or Special needs Golden Retriever. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation is fully tax-deductible. Please just write the Golden's name in the memo line of your check or Paypal submission when sponsoring a Golden Retriever.
