View from the top of Phoenix

I work on the 19,20, and 21 floor of a building in downtown Phoenix AZ. Here is the view I get every work day. I will share it with you from time to time. It can really be beautiful at times and I feel lucky to be able to enjoy it.

Coming tomorrow Booker the great cursing bird.

Booker is the newest addition to our home and by far the most vocal and you will not believe some of the thing she says. Hear all about Booker and her dirty mouth tomorrow.

200 Pounds of Love (Pig Newton)

What can I say about my big bundle of love Pig Newton? Well Newton came to our home when he was about 6 weeks old and he weighed about 2 pounds. He was so scared the first day he jumped out of the car and tried to run away my husband and I had to chase him for at least 20 min he was so fast. Once we caught him I did not want to let him go so I held him that entire day. Now Mr. Newton is close to 200 pounds I’m sure (I haven’t been able to weigh him in some time) and he is still the love of my life. When we get home and after he is fed (that is first order of business for Newtie) he follows me around and lies on his side for me to rub his tummy. The hubby takes him outside for exercise he smacks him on the bum and runs after him the two of them chase one another till they both fall down tired then they lay on the grass hubby’s head on Newton’s belly it is the cutest thing. My husband and I are not able to have children so we have our pets and it is nice to be able to fill our home with all the love, noise and chaos that family brings. As a child I never expected to have a pig as a pet and now as an adult I can’t imagine not having one. Newton is so smart and all he wants is the same thing we all want, it to be loved and I feel honored to be able to give him that love.
