I got into some hot water yesterday over the image on my blog banner. Someone named Charlotte says its her picture. Well, I always knew it was someones picture! Most of them are. I liked it because it has a touch of pink in it and I think it gives my blog just the right amount of color. I certainly never meant to steal it though! Thank you Dr John, Pissy and Tug for defending me. I had never heard of Charlotte before yesterday, but Charlotte and I have got it all straightened out.
On to more important things. A boy from around here who graduated with my daughter had spent 2 years in prison after he graduated. If I am not mistaken I think he beat someone up very bad and thats why he was put in prison. He was just released about 6 months ago. Tonight he is back in jail. It seems he broke into someones garage to steal their ATV ( Isnt that an awful big thing to steal?) He also stole a chain saw. The people had a beagle puppy in the garage.....it was on a chain, they had a nice little area for it....it showed it on the news tonight. This boy went into that garage and beat that little beagle to death with a pipe! The dog was no threat to him, it was a puppy and it was on a chain! Then his 17 year old girlfriend, who was with him, went to school and bragged about beating the puppy to death. They are both in the pokey. I can not handle what they did to that puppy! What the hell is wrong with these kids????? I seriously believe if you can do that to an innocent animal...you can do it to a person. I have just been sick about this all day. To think of the pain they inflicted on that puppy! I hope he goes back to prison for 50 more years. He is not fit to be on the outside. And what kind of a girl would watch her boyfriend beat a puppy?
Sometimes when I watch the news, I wish I hadnt. Some of the things you hear on there just make you sick. These things never happened when I was a kid. People werent so mean spirited as they are now. Maybe a few were, but its local anymore. And I live in a small town. I can imagine what its like in a bigger city.
We are getting the pool ready....but the water is cloudy! I have been in it twice and keep treating it but ....I dont know that much about it. My pool boy ( my son) is coming tomorrow to work on it. He will get it all crystal clear! All I know how to do is pour the shock in it...and it doesnt seem to be helping. Gaige and Zack are amazed that the water only comes up to their shoulders this year! Last year they could barely touch. We had the baby in it, she has a crab to float around in...lol. She is not real impressed yet. We are having some real warm weather. I love it! No complaining about the heat from me. ( At least not yet!..lol)
