Surf Dog!

This is my friend Terry’s dog. I was at Terry’s for a birthday party for her son a few weeks ago, and her dog (whose name escapes me at the moment!) wanted to show off her talents! LOL!

Strawberry Picking

This past weekend I went to visit some friends in Virginia. While there we went strawberry picking. We were told there weren’t many left because it was the end of the strawberry season, but we managed to get almost a whole bucket full!

Let me tell you, these were some of the best tasting strawberries I’d ever had! They were small but juicy and fresh and sweet. On, and they made some delicious frozen margaritas. 🙂
