Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments is hosted by Half Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post to give Mrs. 4444 a break for the summer. Here we go:


Today we are celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary! We bought the wind chime I've been wanting for several years to replace the one that broke that was given to us as a wedding present. For a while we didn't have a porch awning so had no place to hang one. It's funny though, I ended up hanging it on the gutter which we could have done even before we got the awning! We are on vacation today and all next week!

Funniest Video This Week

I laughed all through this Funniest Dog Video over at Comedy Plus this week and had to share it! It was a great start to my week. Just go watch it--I guarantee it will make you laugh!

Sad News-Cat Dies

I got teary eyed when I read A Tribute to Homer, the Blind Wonder Cat over at The Conscious Cat. This was a very unusual cat, who was a great entertainer in spite of its blindness. Both Gerard and I read the book about him and liked it: Homer's Odyssey by Gwen Cooper.

Yellow Means Caution

Getting pet at the school during lunch time.
Did you know that if a dog is wearing a yellow ribbon on it's tail, it is a warning to people that they should leave the dog alone because it isn't friendly? We saw this at our vets Apparently there is a campaign afoot to get owners to get a yellow ribbon for their unfriendly or shy dogs. Abby will not be wearing one of these--she loves greeting strangers and being pet!

I like that idea about having the ribbon on the dogs tail. That would help alot.

Happy Anniversary to both of you and best wishes for many, many more!
I hope you have fun on the agenda for your vacation.
That video is hysterical. I shared it on facebook.
My little dogs will not be wearing that ribbon either. They are too friendly sometimes.
Have a great week!

Happy Anniversary to you and Gerard! Enjoy your vacation!

I wouldn't think dogs would like a ribbon on their tail so maybe there's a better way to show that?

Homer was an amazing cat who taught us all so much. He'll certainly be missed.

Happy anniversary! And yeah, I really did NOT think Abby was a yellow ribbon dog!

Happy anniversary! I love the wind chimes -- what a great way to celebrate your love!
I did not know about the yellow ribbon, That is valuable info for sure!

Happy Anniversary, you two! :)

Abby looks like she's in heaven! So cute.

thanks for linking up. Have a wonderful vacation!

Hey, happy anniversary you guys!! I hope you enjoy your time off!

I really love the ribbon idea. It would be most helpful for people with kids. Then they can be taught which dogs to approach. I still have my kids ask first before approaching, just in case. But our dog wouldn't ever wear one either. WAY too friendly!!

Happy Anniversary!!! Hope it was wonderful as I'm a day late! I love wind chimes and that looks like a good one! Our dogs are very friendly......too much so at times.

Have a wonderful vacation!

Happy Anniversary!
That video was terrific. I would think it would be much easier to make it a yellow collar like they use to do on the bears up in Kings Canyon National Forest. I know my dog would just pull it off his tail.
Have a great week.
