Saw that San loved the story and pictures.  Thanks for sharing the link.

It's amazing what dogs can do.  They will risk their lives for their owner and their children.

If we had more parents like this dog, Scared Monkeys would have a lot less threads.

I've started a thread in Health and Medical Issues "West Nile Virus".  There are a large number of cases in Dallas County in Texas, but it looks like there are cases all over the U.S.

(CBS/AP) West Nile virus continues to ramp up in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say there have been 693 cases of the disease as of August 14, with 26 deaths.

I will share with you my adventure this weekend.  We went to Pigeon Forge, TN., I did some shopping.  Saturday morning we go over to Cades Cove to see what damage occurred back a few weeks ago from the storms.  We stopped at the visitor center and my hubby goes over and talks to the park ranger.  He asks him about the Parsons Branch road going out of Cades Cove.  The ranger told him he would recommend that you have a 4x4 vehicle (which we do not)  before traveling that road--or at least a high-clearance vehicle.  Hubby tells me he has always wanted to travel that road so he drives in that direction----all against my objections.  We turn onto the road and there is a sign that says "Enter at your own risk.  Primitive mountain road. No services available"  So we drive on that road for 7 miles and it takes over 1 hour to get to the end of that road.  I was scared to death.  It is nothing but a gravel road.  The road was created back in the 1800's for wagons.  It was only one of two roads leading out of the cove for the settlers to travel.  It went south out of the cove and ends at the N.C./Tennessee border.  The road was very hard to drive.  Loose gravel made it very difficult.  We climbed up one part of the mountain and didn't think we were going to make it up because of the loose gravel and at the top you had to lift yourself out of your seat to see where the road went which was straight down.  We crossed lots of creeks/branches with concrete bridges over them but water rushing over the roadway.  Scary thinking you might slide off that bridge from the rushing water.   About an hour later we reached the end of the road.  I was so relieved-----Until we turned onto highway 129 and realized we were now on the road known as the "Tail of the Dragon".   This road has 318 curves in the 10 miles of the road and motorcycles come from all over the country to travel this road.  Here we are in our SUV flying down the mountain with motorcycles right behind us.  I yell at my hubby to slow down and he pulls over at each pull-off so the the motorcycles can go around us. 

We had a very interesting day and when we got back to our room I collapsed!!!  My hubby said "Now we have done everything there is to do in Tennessee--next we are going to take on North Carolina".  I don't know if my nerves can stand it.  North Carolina mountains are worse than Tennessee mountains.

That's a cute picture.  She has such pretty eyes.  Boy, where has the time gone?  My niece was born about the time she was.  I have had a blast with her.  I know you do too with her.  It is so great to be able to spoil them and then walk away.

I am watching the Beach Boys on our public tv station.  Brings back memories.  But they sure have aged a lot!

We've seen them on PBS too!  That and many of the other older bands.  Sure brings back memories.

I saw them here at our university back in the late 80's when they opened the Corvette museum.  They were great.  We really rocked out that day.  They put on a fantastic show that day. We had corvettes driving outside the stadium and honking as they were singing.  It was a great show.  I had to get my Mom to keep my son that day.  She told me that me and my hubby were too old to be acting like teenagers!  Imagine that.  I would pay to see them again if they get anywhere near here. 

They are singing a lot of new songs tonight.  They are still great.

This is their 50th anniversary show.  They just did a dedication to Dennis, the one that drown.  Boy he was so cute.  What a waste.
