This and that.....

I haven't posted in awhile...not much has been going on. We have both been busy at work, Dave getting ready for the deployment and me preparing to start working with a new orthodontist who just bought our practice. I'm very anxious to meet him and hope he's nicer than my current boss.
The deployment date keeps changing. Its gone from July 20th, to mid-August, to August 3rd and now its July 30/31. The Army likes to keep you guessing I guess. The unit they're replacing is in charge of the flights and their guys must be in theater for 365 days, not one day more or one day less. When a flight of our guys gets there they'll fill the plane up with soldiers coming home. The whole process of trading out battalions will take atleast a month.

It looks like spring has finally sprung here in the Rockies. My white lilac bush is in full bloom and the backyard smells amazing. If we leave the family room window open the lilac smell fills the whole room. Natures own air freshner!!!

Our cat Orlando has been fighting mats for the past few months and we've been losing the battle so we decided it was time for a lion cut to get ahead of the problem. I thought we'd bring home a very upset and embarrassed kitty but much to our surprise he seems much happier now! He's been VERY lovey and social....he must feel better having gotten rid of all that long, hot and matted hair!!!
A few before/after pics....


Apparently nakedness agrees with him.....


  1. It certainly looks like he's loving the sun! I think our cat Leo would be devastated if we were to give him a hair cut... he hates having a bit of a trim when the odd knot creeps in.

  2. I say we kidnap Dave. Orlando, you have the right idea.

  3. LOL............ does he have a sunburn yet? More pictures.............

  4. Ok, did you put sunscreen on him. Lilacs have such a heavenly scent. Have a wonderful weekend.
