X2 I'm very allergic to cig smoke too. So if we happened to be around you, and you partake, I will be making a wide detour around you. Please don't take it personally.

First Off


The magnificent marauding merry mutants are not a real secretive bunch and this is always a great place to be a part of and join in on the camaraderie.
There are a few you have to be wary of and I'm one of them.

Welcome to our merry mayhem.

Steve we will be in Ruidoso July 15-25 for the races and then we are heading West so we might could make this one. Never been to Bryce so it would be a new experience for us. I haven't started planning that trip yet so we will have to see bout adding that in. I have some w--k to do in the LA and up to Sacramento area after that then when done we were planning on doing Yellowstone and Glacier Park so that may well work for us. Would love to see you all again!

From Earlene:
"This was anything but a Happy Mother's Day for me beginning around 8:30 this morning when one of my worst nightmares occurred. Miya and I were barely 5 minutes into our neighborhood walk when a pit bull came across the street and attacked her. No matter how tough our girl is, she is no match for the jaws of a pit. She tried to hold her own to begin with before the pit grasped her shoulder, very close to her neck. I was beating on the dog and screaming for help and lousy horrible people just kept driving by. I had the pit's collar in my left hand, trying to pull him away and after what seemed like minutes, he loosened his hold, and he and I tumbled to the ground. And on the ground I stayed, holding the dog's collar for dear life while Miya stood against me panting with exhaustion. Finally, a good soul named Jose stopped his truck and came to help me. By then, the pit was pretty docile and standing peacefully by me. Jose, my fearless hero, took the dog by the collar, and I examined Miya. Under all the slobber, I found not one injury. There was blood but it was mine from a puncture most likely caused from a tooth on her collar. A call to 911 from this hysterical woman produced a patrolman maybe 5-10 minutes later. Meanwhile Jose had tied this dog to his truck. Long story shortened a bit - the unchipped, untagged dog was taken away by Animal Control. Then we get to the damage. After I went home and showered, I found that bending or breathing deeply were causing pain in my left side, the side that I fell on with the pit bull. A trip to the ER found a fractured rib, a few scrapes, and some bruises. So I'm going to have to put away the Fitbit (it tattles if I register less than 7,000 steps a day) and take it easy for a while. I just pray that I get over my fear and when my rib heals I can take my girl back on our walkways again. I still cry when I think of the people who drove on by when I was screaming for help. Above all, I thank God for Jose."

We spent several hours in the ER. I think she is going to have more bruises tomorrow.

My very good friend and veterinarian came over. he did find a small puncture would but most of the damage was pulling the skin away from the body. Miya is a sore puppy also. She may have gotten a piece of the pitbull, or he may have been in another fight somewhere else along the streets.

One of our pet peeves is people who let their animals run off leash. I don't care where you are. Dogs are dogs. They can look at one another and set off a fight. If they are not leashed or tethered, as harmless as they may be, one never knows what is going to happen when they approach each other.

At least here in Texas City there is a law and if the owners are found, they and the dog will be in the police files.

Please, if anyone thinks it is alright to let their dogs run loose, please reconsider. It's not fair to the majority that do leash their animals.

And the culprit is:

OMG I am so sorry you went through this. Pets should be on leashes rather than being allowed to roam. We had a pit bull attach a cat we rescued a few years back and it killed our cat. Our neighbor was trying to help me get the stupid dog off our cat and her husband called 911. Luckily the police came quick and grabbed the pit bull until animal control came. It was horrible. I am so sorry you both had to go through that. God bless Jose for coming up your rescue!
