He's at it again...

See these two??? Well they're not as innocent as they appear. And yes I reluctantly admit that I believe Little Miss Gypsy Jo was in on the sequin party. (she does like glam)
Life has been busy and hectic and apparently Mr. Bettis decided it wasn't busy or hectic enough so he created some drama.
We were gone for an hour and this is what greeted us.

First up a container of itty bitty sequins was completely destroyed. That is not the original container. I only found bits and pieces of the original and can only presume the rest of the container was eaten. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to pick up itty bitty sequins?

This is the lid to the container or should I say what's left of the lid.

My wedding corsage that was sitting on the antique dresser in our living room and there's only ONE dog who could reach it....yep! Mr. Bettis.
What puzzles me is this has been displayed on the dresser since Sept 12, 2011 and he chose now to destroy it? I just don't get it.
Of course his owner was a wee bit disgruntled but chose to overlook it. After all Mr. Bettis doesn't destroy one thing that belongs to the owner.
Thankfully we arrived home in what I believe was the nick of time because I found one of my bedroom slippers (that was in the bedroom) wet with slobber so I have a suspicion my slippers were about to be destroyed.
By the way: I'm still finding sequins. Maybe I should just ignore them and say they're part of our Christmas decorations.

Awareness Month

November is RSD/CRPS Awareness Month. I have been diagnosed with CRPS Stage 2. It is a difficult condition to live with let alone explain so I'll let that for the professionals. For more information click here.

Pass the Puffs...

Thanks to my family I am now battling the respiratory virus. I escaped it for quite awhile but it hit with a venegance today. I don't really have time for the coughing, congestion, wheezing and sneezing as the holidays are fast approaching and there's much gift making to be finished. Forget that Life has also been tossing a few other challenges our way. Anyway, I'm well stocked with Halls throat lozenges. Puffs with Vicks is hard to find in this town and they're my favorite weapon of choice. The DH has been home for approximately 1 hour and claims he's heard enough of the wheezing, coughing and sneezing so he's sleeping on the couch. WOOT-WOOT! I get the bed all to myself! Now I'm off to fix some hot tea, lather the Vicks on my forehead, and throw a Halls in mouth so I can get some of this gift knitting on the move. What's your weapon of choice when you're sick?
