Sleepy evening

" Henri" was very tired after his visit to the groomer. "Bark-N-Bath" in Monee. He was happy though, socializing with the other dogs, who were all walking around and friendly. One was a big white poodle who reminded me of his mother (except she was apricot), and a big fluffy black cat who was very sweet. They said Henri was a very good boy! And he is. And here, "Timber" is just glad that he's quietly laying down.

While Henri was getting his makeover, we had burgers, fries and chocolate malts at "Schoop's" in Monee. I love Schoop's! We used to stop at the one in Munster, Indiana on the way home from Michigan, when we had a place there. This one was very good too with a very friendly small-town waitress. Then we browsed in the resale shop next-door, "Two More Things", and on to a resale boutique in Manteno, "2nd Impressions". I found two pretty little jumpers for Danielle, one is black velvet. For me, a LizWear red flannel shirt and a Sag Harbor black blouse. And a punched tin reindeer ornament and a lovely little enameled Christmas tree pin. I was really looking for a Christmas sweatshirt. I am invited to a "Funny Christmas Sweatshirt Party"! Any ideas?

Henri looks worn out. What a big day!
I think you need to paint a funny sweatshirt! Maybe something with Rudolph? The Christmas cartoons should be recycling now in emails. I'll send you one if it comes my way!

I love Schoops. We went there a lot when we lived in South Holland. How about drawing a picture of Henri with a red nose? Or maybe Richard?

Aww, precious!!

If you mean "funny" sweatshirt as in "tacky" you could always sew garland on the front in the shape of a tree and put some blinking lights on it. Don't forget to sew Santa's legs (from an old stuffed santa doll) hanging out from under the tree...

And if you really do, make sure to take a picture! hahaha!
