Arkansas, Part 2

First, the rental car we drove around and I got stuck in the mud in the Manning Cemetery. Anyone else think it is hard to drive a "strange" car? I had the thing two days before I figured out it had a sun roof! And I won't even share how long I stood out in the cold and snow trying to figure out how to put gas in thing! Seriously though the car (a C300) had some nice features but I would suggest they rethink the cruise control and signal placement - because the signal thing was hidden behind the steering wheel, I kept pushing the cruise up or down causing the car to speed up at times when what I really wanted was to slow down and make a turn.


These photos are of Merriell in Mountain Home, Arkansas. We went to visit a friend of my mom's and this dog is her neighbor dog but she lives about half her time at her house. I was told she is a Jack Russell but I know a Rat Terrier when I see one ;)




And this evil chihuahua is Peanut. In a fight with my old girl Chloe, my money would be on this one! She belongs to my cousin Vickie in West Memphis. I just assumed that the dog of a groomer would be well behaved but this dog is vicious and obnoxious! Now I know how other people felt when they came to my house and Chloe stalked and nipped at them. I must point out, however, that Chloe was never this, er, round :)

The 'glowing' red eyes on this chihuahua says it all....Chloe was precious - in her own little way!

A Snapper In the Hood

We ran an errand early this morning and saw this guy leaving the pond and making his way somewhere else. The Muscovy ducks, more about them ...
