The Big Game

Sunday is the day when most of the country will be focused on their television sets.  The Big Game will be played.  I, however, choose to watch another Big Game on Sunday.  The Puppy Bowl airs on the Animal Planet channel at 3pm.  There will be a kitten half-time show and silkie chicken cheerleaders.

lucky or unlucky

A winning lotto ticket worth $63 million is about to expire.  California lottery officials gave warning in November that the winner had 180 days to come forward but no one has tried to claim the money yet.  By Thursday, it will be too late.  Does that make them lucky or unlucky?  lost money

K-9

An Ohio officer thought when he retired, his K-9 companion would come to live with him.  The dog was part of the family and belonged there.  However the police department had other plans.  The dog is considered property and thus has to be auctioned.  A Gofundme account was set up and so far has grown to $42,000 to help the officer buy his dog at the auction.  K-9 family member

Grease Live

I loved the movie Grease so I felt compelled to watch the live performance Sunday night.  I've been in several plays and musicals so I was watching to see how this professional cast handled the stage performance.  I was impressed with a lot of them but some fell short.  It was awesome to see the original Frenchy as the waitress, Vi, in the diner.  It was amazing to see the quick changes of sets and costumes.  The show ended at 9pm and because I don't normally stay up that late, I fell asleep before it was over.  Guess I'll have to watch it on Demand to catch the whole thing.  Overall it was worth watching.  Grease

Darth Vader

A statue and a little bit of snow may make things look like something they're not.  In a small town in Poland stands a statue of the town's founder.  After the snowfall, it took on the look of Darth Vader.  dark side

perfect bedroom

A dad gave his daughter the perfect bedroom.  It took him 18 months and over $4200 but he says that it was worth it.  He did most of the work himself.  
His daughter even
has a tree in which she can sit and climb.  Fairy Forest bedroom

Dogs places 7th

Ludivine is a 2 1/2 year old bloodhound that decided to run a half marathon.  She got out of her house the night before the race but her owner wasn't worried because they live on a farm and just thought she was out sniffing around.  The next day at the marathon, Ludivine's owner didn't know she was there.  The dog ran the race and finished 7th.  Because of this organizers of the half marathon have renamed it Elkmont's Hound Dog Half.  dog wins medal
