It really is beautiful.
It's beautiful in the shade.
Or with the sun glinting off it.
And I have that perfect license plate.
Even from the back it is beautimous!
But it just got more beautiful. Know why?
Yesterday I picked up my mail and someone sent me something perfect for the truck and for me, too. Look closely, see it? Right there!
Yep, Caroline sent me the magnetic sticker that says it all. As the mom to five rescued four-leggers with funny little fuzzy faces, I can say that it is very true .... I'm not sure who got the best deal here, the five or me!!
I can't imagine what life would be without them. Sometimes I think of the inconveniences .... the months of house training; the months of gaining their trust since they had various degrees of human-fear; the cost of having them all neutered and spayed; the cost of upkeep - shots, food, grooming (at $30/dog, it's a tidy $150 to have them professionally done!!); the inconvenience when I want to travel (they're not quite trustworthy enough to take to someone's house overnight yet, and not all of them know that a walk on the leash means "go potty"); the cost if I travel (I have a good deal at $20/night; some house/pet sitters charge that much per dog!); the problem with eloping dogs (er, dog!!!), etc., etc., etc. But I wouldn't want it to be any other way. They completely own me, hook line and sinker. That's just the way it is.
So yes, I technically rescued them, but they have kept me from being lonely. Living alone can become wearisome. With them in my life, there is no way!! They delight me, make me laugh, make be feel safe (built-in stranger alarms!), and their love in unconditional. Completely. So I may have made the drives to collect them, but the rescuing is pretty mutual. :)
On another note, look what Sandy introduced me to when she was here.
Know what it is?
Coca-Cola imported from Mexico! Seriously!
And what's so special about it? It is made with sugar, real sugar, not other sweeteners, and it tastes very good!
See the sticker on the side of the bottle? It's the ingredient list which is added for our benefit here in the US.
Life is good, isn't it? Great truck, wonderful friends, precious pets, and Coke! Yep ....
.... Life is beautiful!!!!
