Was That The Garage Door?

Stanley (OK, and maybe me just a little) never totally relaxes whenever mom or dad is not home.  


The minute we hear the truck pull into the garage we are at at the door in lightening speed (186,000 miles per second in case you were wondering).


Once they are back in the house then it's time to relax.


BTW, did you notice the cross stitch on the wall of the Lord's Supper?  Our dad did that!

Walter is the same way. Millie doesn't really worry about it and just lets Walter keep watch. When he sounds the alarm she is right there to great the wayward family member.

Your dad is very talented. That cross stitch looks very intricate.

Beautiful cross stitch. Mommys cousin gave mommy a Last Supper cross stitch material with the X marks on it. Mommy couldnt figure out how to cross stitch it, she said the x marks didnt line up. Its wonderful to see your Last Supper. Maybe Mommy will be inspired now to try to finish her project.

The boys are constantly checking if one of us leaves the house. I love that cross stitch. I used to do quite a bit of cross stitching. It is very relaxing.

My chi's are the same way when I'm not home. I had someone tell me last week that he knocked on my door, the dogs came up to the door and barked loudly. Then the barking would get softer. Then it would get louder again. I think they must run up and down the hall barking.

I lay up against the door from the house to the garage when my mom goes out, so I know as soon as she's BACK!!!
