What a wild couple of months! We have finished our move into the Rattlesnake house. What an adventure that has been! Nothing really major, just random things that kept me on my toes. In addition to that, I have opened her up to foster dog named “Sweetie.” She’s a great dog. That saying is true that I can’t save them all, but fostering comes close. Fostering is a great way to figure out what kind of dog you want and what temperament is a good fit for your family. I’m happy to help anyone become a foster or permanent family. There are many dogs that would love to call you “woof” which translates to Mom/Dad.
Our first Thanksgiving at home was wonderful! It was held the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Since we can be thankful everyday, I think it still counts. We had lots of family gathered around, and we had a great time.
When I was a kid, the house we all went to for gatherings was the “cousin who lived in the country with the biggest house.” That torch has been passed to me. We have people who like to play horseshoes, musicians, and lots of kids in the family. I can accommodate all of that.
One of the appeals when I first saw Rattlesnake was just how big the inside was. Plus the surrounding yard and carport can hold A LOT of people! The original list of those invited was over 40. We had 14, and we had plenty of elbow room.
