Can a mouse stop a full-size SUV?

I know that seems like a stupid question. Well The night before Easter Leo, myself and Pati went to see the Doobie Brothers. Who doesn't like the Dobbie Brothers. Great band, older than us, and they still rock.

On the way home the car started to act funny. No power going up hill and when we stopped at a light, it wanted to stop.

Well, we were suppose to get up early on Easter day. We were going to travel to Rhode Island and meet up with very good friends for dinner. We were going to stay the night and drive back on Monday.

So on Sunday we slept in due to the fact we weren't traveling. Leo went out to check out the car and see what could have cause the car to not to work properly. He really didn't know where to start. Up goes the hood, he checks the wires, then he pulls up the air filer. Guess what he finds??

The answer to the question is yes. Leo found a mouse nest in the filter box. Some of the nest got caught in the air filter. And that is why the car didn't work.

Our grandchildren are the best. Their wonderful smiles, laughs and humor always makes for a wonderful day with them. They are always super excited to see us. They know we will have presents for each of them.

Justin's birthday is this Saturday April 23rd. He will be 3 this year. He was born in Florida. We got to see him for the first time 2 weeks after he was born. He was so cute and hasn't changed much. Still cute. He maybe the youngest but he keeps up with the big ones.

Buying a car

Last December, 3 days before Christmas, I had an car accident. Since then, I have been looking for a SUV. Yes, I am picky. I want a blue SUV.

Leo and I have been online almost everyday. We went to different dealerships and left our information - name, phone, car type, make, model and color. We have not heard a word from any of the dealerships. I guess they don't need the money.

We did test drive one SUV, had a mechanic check it out. There was a clean CarFax. When the mechanics check out the SUV, they could tell that it was in an accident. So much for CarFax.

Please beware. CarFax is not accurate by along shot. Always have a good mechanic check it out before you buy. Needless to say, we did not buy the blue SUV.

Leo and I have been check and several other sites. The other day, I found a blue SUV. We called the company. Now, they have 12 different SUVs online for sale. They are on several different websites.

We were told they only have 3 in stock. And not the two we were calling about. We have been checking for almost 4 months and these vehicles were not online until that day. How can a company advertise something they don't have??

Needless to say, I know I have to get something very soon and it probably won't be blue. I didn't think that buying a car would be so much work.

Sam and Bill's Wedding at the Crystal Room in Naugatuck CT

What a beautiful day for the wedding of Samantha and Bill.

The sky was a baby blue with white puffy clouds. But it was cold. We arrived to Samantha's house and was greeted by a cute little pug mix and her dad.

The girls were upstairs getting ready. Hair, makeup, getting dressed. The chaos going on was a sight to see. The flower girls were dressed and ready to go, but the ladies still had aways to go. Once they were ready....

It seemed like the day went quickly yet, everything was perfect. Everyone was ready to party

Bears Bears Bears

Say "Hello" to Snowflake (which we got in New York on our Honeymoon), Good Luck Bear, and James (named after my stepson).

Some people may know how much I love Build a Bear. They have bears of course, but they also have other animals. Well, this past Christmas my loving husband got me Rudolph. (With hints of course).

If you know anything about Build a Bear, this Rudolph has a nose that lights up and does talk(alittle).

Last year I got Hal the moose -- his antlers light up. (I do have Holly his girlfriend too).

I received gift cards to Build a Bear from my stepchildren also.

Meet Bonnie the kitty and Leo the puppy dog.

Then Valentine's Day. OMG...Another bear(a cute dog) from hubby!! I named him Jayden. The other puppy is Justin. (Both named after our grandsons)

It's so good to be spoiled by the man you love so much especially, since he thinks that you really don't need another one. Well, just like jewelry, shoes and scrapbook stuff you never have enough. Men just don't understand that.

I guess I forgot to say I have a total of 14 different Build a Bears and 1 Vermont Teddy Bear.(that is a good story, next time).

Why post this you say...Build a Bear does some wonderful charity work and this to me is important. I like to support a business that helps others.

Yes, Angel Moon Photography is involved in our community. Both my husband and myself mentor a child in our local school system. I recommend to everyone to mentor if you have the time. Make a difference.
