Hello Blogland,  It's Me Shorty

It's been almost two weeks since my last actual post, though I did upload a few videos, and I only have a little bit to share.  Tsk, Tsk, Tsk!

Well, my parents, Harley and I planned to go WI to visit my sister and her family Sunday the 10th.  And to all our surprise at the last minute my aunt and cousin decided to go with us.  It was a very pleasant surprise to say the least.  Unfortunately the trip started out kind of sucky.  Due to construction on I94, we got stuck in Indiana for over two hours.  But we arrived safe and sound.  Tired, but safe and sound.

Monday morning the girls decided to take a drive down to Lake Michigan.  Here's me, my sister and my mom on the rocks overlooking the water. 

The next day we drove over to "The House on the Rock".  Unfortunately, dunce that I am, I forgot to grab extra batteries for my camera so I only got a couple of pics.  I tried to take a few with my camera, but they didn't come out to great.

If you ever get a chance to get there, it's an attraction I highly recommend.  The house itself is a fascinating must see.  But when you add on the Infinity Room, and the warehouses full of all different kinds of collections, you will be in awe.

This is the Japanese garden outside the entrance to the house.

These are the few viewable pics of the carved ivory tusks, one of the many miniature dolls houses, a "Old School Pimp-mobile" (with a heart shaped tub in the back), and his collection of department store "Holiday Teddy Bears".

I wish I could have shown you more.  But I hope these will at least inspire you to go and check out the web-site.  And maybe go see for yourself one day.  Believe me, it's worth the trip!

I'm off to take Harley for a walk, so I'll leave you with some cuteness.
