Look who is looking pretty sharp

Dexter just had a trim!  He gets pretty wild and woolly and I succumb and send him off to the beauty salon about 3 times a year.  I used to clip him myself, but he is a bit fiddly being so small and someone who knows what they are doing creates a much better result. 

Look who else was looking pretty sharp back in the day.  Actually this was my day, in 1992.   Just look at my handsome partner lol.

Yes folks, this is me on my wedding day, 19 years ago today.  My husband does appear in other shots (don't worry about that) but this was always one of my favourites, and he had it framed and gave it to my on our first anniversary.  Which was kind of him, seeing the dog featured in it, not him! 
Zoe was my all time favourite dog (sorry Dexter and others).  I bought her from a pet shop.  Long before they were flash sort of establishments, this one was the type which had lots of different puppies and kittens and birds all over the place in assorted cages.
I felt sorry for her, she was so ugly as a pup I didn't think anyone else would buy her.  She survived Parvo virus and grew to be something like a jack russell/corgie/cattle dog combo, and was a wonderful companion to me every day of her 15 years.

In fact, when I married, my boss at the time penned an amazing little poem about Zoe being stuck at home when everyone else was out celebrating.  That wasn't quite the case, because she was at least included in the pre-wedding photos as you can see! 

Excuse the exceptionally poor (wedding) photography, but the frame is rather large and on the wall fairly high.  So I just took a lazy shot from ground level.  Hope you get the idea anyhow.

A great day, a great husband - and now 19 years have passed already.  Apparently I am being whisked away for the weekend and son is having his first weekend home alone.  Hmmm.

cheers for now - Wendy

Here are my replies to your comments in previous post:

Daffodil  - thanks Daff.  It is amazing how well our garden has been going this season with very little help from us.  The chooks however, have been bad and doing some damage the last few days!  Glad you like the chair.  Motivation is a bit low on the ground here too.
Ali - sweet potatoes continue to amaze me Ali.  They just keep on keeping on.  There are a few things sort of shabby/shabby chic here lol.
Lyndel - thanks!  The chair was purchased for $3 at a garage sale.  The sad part was I could have bought 4 of them, but they were all damaged in one way or another.  This was the best one.
**Anne** - yes they are all pretty good at the moment.  The peas are just wonderful - my favourite uncooked veg.
