Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

~  Stephani at A Defined Life just started a new Monday meme, which I completely forgot about on Monday.  She's calling it:  Weekend Wrap-up.  Take 1 or more pictures during the weekend, and post them on Monday.  You can use words...or not.    You can use your big girl camera, or you can use your cell phone if you want.  For further instructions, click here.

~  I just heard on tv that the big university near here (where MS attends) is planning on increasing the parking permit.  Heavens to Betsy!   I had "sticker shock" during MS' freshman year!  Of course, the commuter's permit isn't near as much as the resident's permit.  Guess they want to discourage those kids that live on campus from driving cars.

~  Did anyone watch the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebration?  I love that she carries a purse with her!  I heard on tv that her hems are weighted to keep her dress from flying up!

~  Did you know the Queen has a twitter account?  @hmqelizabeth

~  Laika had her third puppy class last night.  We worked on "come".  Oh my, but she was adorable running to me down the aisle of the store with those legs going and the ears flopping.  She also had to meet 3 other dogs in the store.  It didn't matter if the dog was big or little, she was terrified!  There was a very big 6 month old Rottweiler that was huge; she wouldn't have much to do with him.  There were a couple of chihuahuas in the store last night;  she eventually met them, but was very cautious.  She's just so stinkin' cute!

~  Have a good weekend!  Don't forget to visit Mrs. 4444 & Java!


  1. I always wondered if the Queen actually tweets anything or is it just her PR team. For some reason, I have a hard time picturing her sitting down and sending a tweet.

  2. I did watch part of the Jubilee celebrations on TV. Great hats, and the queen pulled out some big diamonds.

  3. Thanks for the info on the new Monday meme. I like doing a weekend follow-up, so that sounds like a fun way to do that!

  4. Parking on campus is ridiculous. I work for a university and our staff rate is $240/year. You can understand when i was super excited when my daughter's permit at her university was only $50 for the entire year. Plus they can park anywhere there.

  5. Glad puppy class is going well!

    As for HM Queen Elizabeth, I heard a tidbit somewhere last week that she has a Shoe Wearer on staff... someone to break in her shoes so that she doesn't have blisters...

  6. I simply have a hard time imagining the Queen tweeting.

    Your pup sounds adorable.

  7. I too have a tough time visualizing the Queen tweeting. I hope Prince Phillip is recovering.

    Hope your pup does well learning commands and socializing. It is fun to have a dog that is welcome wherever you go with them.

  8. As adorable as your puppy sounds, I'm SO GLAD it is you doing the training and cleaning up after it.

    The Queen tweets? I can't wrap my brain around that.

  9. Ahhh puppies!! Parking is such a rip off. I think it should just be part of tuition...seeing as it costs an arm and a leg to go they should at least give you a parking spot. Sheesh!

  10. That sounds like a fun meme, I will have to remember it! I love all things Royal, yes I watched.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  11. Our dog has no trouble with come, staying without us with her is her next challenge we are working on towards her Canine Good Citizen certificate.
