Throwback Thursday

A timely throwback memory. My cousin Kim is in town for graduations and a few other things, so I pulled up a few old pics and made a little collage of Kim and family down through the years. Cousins are very special family! We are as close as siblings and even better friends than if we were brothers and sisters 😊

It’s so nice getting to spend some time with family that you grew up with. Lifelong memories ❤️

Here’s to #Throwbackthursday!

Tuesday Puppy Report 🐶

I introduced you all to Bell a couple of weeks ago and I wanted you to see how she grown 😊

Isn’t she the smartest looking little girl! She’s growing like a weed.

You don’t really notice the growth when you see them everyday… But she is progressing in every way. Smart as a whip!

I will send you another update later on.

PS: She’s sneaky 👇🏻

She loves to sneak away, then hide and watch you try to find her. She’s a handful 😊


Have a good night 😴

Sunday Reflections…

Last night was interesting to say the least.. We have a new puppy in the house 🐶 You forget just how involved it is. They have such incredible energy! Having to take them out to walk, clean up after their accidents, watch where you step and what you leave down… Etc. Then, at bedtime, the whining and barking is non stop for a while. Then there’s the late night walks, more water, more play, more whining… Wow! Energy without bounds.

Bell just loves her rabbit 🐇 and her bone 🦴 and her ball 🏀 and her new home I think 🏡 😊

Then, just when you think it might have been a mistake, that it’s gonna be so much work and effort… she crawls up on you and goes to sleep in your lap… Thats when you realize that Love is a four legged word 🐶❤️ You’ve got a new family member, a new baby… and the whining stops when you let her sleep beside you in the bed 🛌

Does Anyone Love You More Than Your Dog?

All my memories as far back as I can recall, involve a dog. “Mans best friend” didn’t get to be their calling card for no reason! I really believe that Dogs make us better people…

Just look at that face. This is Tracker. She was a great girl.

Yesterday we all got out to do a few things in the snow and ice. Long story short, I twisted my ankle a bit… And Scout is stove up a bit today as well. But, when she saw me in pain, she crawled over to me this morning to let me know that she loved me. Your dog wants to take care of you more than their self… What an admirable trait.

Believe it or not, my dog loves watching the sunset. Maybe it’s because we are watching and paying the setting sun ☀️ attention, but he loves it too ❤️
Let’s play in the snow! ❄️
One of my favorite pictures! My Dad, my 1st dog Heidi & Me wearing my his hat and coat 😊
Always ready to have some fun.

Im gonna try to be more like my dogs from now on. I think if we all did, the world would be a better place😊

Happy Birthday! 🎈

My little baby boy is all grown up 🥲 He’s a man now… I still look at him and see the wild adventurous youngster that wore his Batman getup EVERYWHERE for years 😊 His love for animals is apparent, as is his love for family and friends ❤️ I put together a quick collage of photos that I think captures at least a bit of his essence…

From Halloween, to butterflies, learning to play guitar to hanging with Paul Thorn and even becoming the Ninja 🥷 that he has always wanted to be. Happy Birthday!

He has been all over the place with his mom and me. Worked on projects, played with tigers, received awards for his stewardship and more. I’m a very proud papa!

Happy Birthday Jacob!

~ Dad



Christmas Gifts for your Pets! Don’t Forget Your KOI! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I Love ALL my pets! Including my Koi! I always get my Pups a special Christmas gift – A chew bone, a sweater, snacks, a new collar, etc… But what about my Koi???

OK, our dogs Love their presents and accessories! But what about my Finned Friends? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Franswa LOVES his scarf… Can’t you tell😊

I’ve been trying to think of a few things for my “Finned Friends”…

How about a scarf or onesie for the Koi?

I’m not sure this will work… But isn’t it cute 😊

A more practical gift would be food and snacks, but they can’t eat till spring…

They can’t eat it now, but “Spring is Coming”! You could stock up to be ready | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A new “Koi Cave” would be a great Christmas gift idea!

A built in Koi Cave is functional & looks Awesome!

A custom stone Koi Cave or an easy to install Koi Castle is always a good choice! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Koi Castles are available at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio and can be installed most anytime.

The ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS GIFT for your Koi (and YOU) would be a Bigger, Better KOI POND complete with a custom Koi Cave & Nightlights! Boom 💥

The Ultimate Christmas gift for your Koi (and YOU) would be a New, Custom Designed Pond with beautiful Waterfalls! Koi and Water Gardens go together like peas and carrots 🎅🏻 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I hope this helps! When I realized I was snubbing my Koi on Christmas, it hit me pretty hard… Never again! I’m getting something special this year for my ‘Finned Friends’ – aka: My Koi!

Merry Christmas! 🎅🏻🎄

Throwback Thursday

Everyone loves a good memory! Here’s mine for this week’s Throwback Thursday – Christmas 🎄 style!

This is Littlepaw. She LOVES Christmas! At least she loves our. Christmas tree 🎄 She sleeps under it, or sometimes up in the tree… Cats are crazy 😝

This picture is a decade old now… That’s 10 years for everyone in Cedar Grove 😝 Littlepaw is still our official Christmas Kitty and still loves it when the tree goes up.

Ahhhhh, Christmas memories on Throwback Thursday ❤️🎅🏻🎄


Have a great day!

Enjoy Throwback Thursday!

And, Merry Christmas 🎄
