A Birthday and Whiskey Weekend

Last night we went to great-nephew Justin's 4th birthday party. He loves skateboards, so his mom made him this really cool looking cake. We were all very impressed by it, and it tasted great, also!
There's the birthday boy, blowing out the candles. It was a really good party, plenty of people to chat with. We had quite a discussion about various cruises, which makes me want to book another one!
Today we went to meet our new grand-dog, Whiskey. He's about 8, a short haired dachshund that Steph adopted yesterday from a dachshund rescue. Poor baby was abandoned in Georgia. They think he was used as a breeder, and kept crated all the time. He's been neutered, and had to have some diseased teeth removed, so he's on antibiotics. He's really skinny, and needs to put on a few pounds. He also needs some remedial housebreaking.
He's a cutie pie, and he and Toast are getting along fine. Steph was a little stressed, so we brought Toast home with us for the week, so Steph can concentrate on Whiskey.
Toast never bothers much with toys, but he loves to make his squeak.
He looked like the dog in the Petsmart commercial, carrying his toy around.

So it's been a nice weekend, but all weekends are followed by Mondays. I have a busy week this week, with sports physicals, the eye doctor, attendance and PAC meetings, a nurse's meeting, a Healthy Alliance meeting, and I'll have a student for two days. And I want to try to get to the gym once or twice, too!

And the beat goes on!
