I’ll be honest when I say that my little Zippity-Do-Dog (his registered name) is frankly too dumb, too old and too lazy to fetch. (I don’t want to totally bash my little wonder dog, though, so for the record please note that he has won the FABULOSO DOG award each year for the past 15 years when it comes to loyalty and love-ability!) HE’s THE BEST. Aside from the good points, a gadget like this takes the cake and makes me wish I’d have started sooner…maybe then Zippy wouldn’t have been so incredibly incapable of fetching.

MAYBE NOT! You decide–click here!
This weekend was comprised of Muddy Cleats, Pouring Rain, Cold Temperatures, Ultimate Frisbee, a Pure Mess & PURE FUN! I felt like I was back in high school again…until Sunday when my body reminded me that I’m not as agile as 10 years ago. At least I understood a wee bit more about the strategy of the game than my first official season last summer. I had a lot of fun–even if it was cold, and wet, and my clothes–muddy and soggy! I’m still trying to understand all the correct terminology for all of the strategic plays, but I figure that after another season, if my almost-30 year old body can take the beating, I’ll be a pro! So much fun!
In other news, Remember how I’ve said that I never win anything? My parents felt sympathy for my pathetic plight and this weekend, I WON! Now, granted I was THE ONLY entrant in the sweepstakes, but nevertheless, I was the winner of a $100 dollar sweepstakes! WHOOT! My parents took me to grocery store and I had 5 minutes to get all I could with the goal of trying to get between $95 and $99.99 (with a limit on the amount of meat I was allowed to get). Michael and I ran around the store–Michael was perusing the meat and junk foods while I made an attempt at the staple items, while keeping the tab in my head. I was at $97 (in my mental estimation) and figured my estimation was on the low end, so I grabbed $3 worth of bread items. The grocery clerk thought we were crazy as Michael interrogated him with the video camera as only Michael can do. The total came up to $103. SHAME! If only I hadn’t grabbed the bread items. I lost again! So my parents made me put it all back. KIDDING. They let us have it all, even though there was supposed to be a penalty of the best item in the cart. Thankfully, though, they didn’t even enforce that!!!. It was ever so much fun! THANKS TO THE BEST PARENTS IN THE UNIVERSE for the HEAP OF ENCOURAGEMENT!
