Too cute not to post!

The winner of the drawing will be posted and contacted on Monday! Thanks to all the old faces and new that played along!

MUSE: Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?
*original author unknown - but too funny not to pass on!*

SARAH PALIN: Before it got to the other side, I shot the chicken, cleaned and dressed it, and had chicken burgers for lunch.

BARACK OBAMA: The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a change! The chicken wanted change!

JOHN MC CAIN: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON: When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure right from Day One that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?

COLIN POWELL: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken. What is your definition of chicken?
AL GORE: I invented the chicken.

JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white? We need some black chickens.

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his current problems before adding new problems.

OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

MARTHA STEWART:No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.

GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.

BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

JOHN LENNON: Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace.

BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken 2008, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken 2008. This new platform is much more stable and will never crash or need to be rebooted.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?

Happy Birthday to me!

I have been dreading this day for years now. I just don't feel like I am 40 years old. Heck I still think and act like I am twentyish! LOL I guess I thought I would have done more with my life by now. Made some kind of difference in this world by now some how. I know if 50 is the new 30 then I am only 20! LOL
I just really thought my skin was going to melt off my body or something terrible, (not really), but I woke up and had a great morning with the boys and realized I have so much to be thankful for!

So on that note: Here is a little blog give away for every one!

For everyone who tells a birthday story in my comments I will put your names in a hat and have Trey draw a name and you will get a box of awesome new in the package Prima Products and Around the Block Products! It will be like a little birthday present from me!

Beautiful Fall Day

Fall is sorta a sad time of year for me, since I am such a summer time girl! But now that the boys are getting older it is becoming the season I look forward to getting back into the studio and getting some work done. I seem to neglect things in the summer!

Rhett and Scarlett are growing with leaps and bounds, Rhett's last vet visit showed he was over 110 lbs. at 8 months old! Here is a new photo of them! I couldn't resist adding one of Rhett 6 months ago! Look at his head and paws now! They are twice as big as Robs already!

Introducing two new family members!

I know I said I would get down stairs and get some thing, anything, created. I got alittle side tracked! I reorganized and re worked some things in my studio! In my mind that counts!~ LOL

Also I would love to introduce you to two new family members here at freeman zoo!

Newfoundland - These dogs are intelligent, courageous and generous with outstanding temperaments. They are loving, patient and playful with children and are born baby sitters. Any animal, child or visitor can expect a friendly welcome from the Newfie.

Newfoundlands ("Newfs") have webbed feet and a water-resistant coat. Males weigh (130–150 lb), and females (100–120 lb), placing them in the "giant" weight range. The largest Newfoundland on record weighed 264 pounds and measured over 7 feet from nose to tail.

International Kennel clubs generally describe the breed as having a sweet temperament. They are often referred to as the "gentle giant." They have deep barks, are easy to train and are known as guardians, watchdogs and good with children. Also referred to as the "Nanny" dogs!

In 1832, Ann Harvey of Isle aux Morts, her father, and a Newfoundland Dog named Hairy Dog saved over 180 Irish immigrants from the wreck of the brig Despatch.

And in the early 1900s, a dog that is thought to have been a Newfoundland saved 92 people who were on a sinking ship in Newfoundland during a blizzard. The dog retrieved a rope thrown out into the turbulent waters by those on deck, and was able to bring the rope to shore to people waiting on the beach. A breaches buoy was attached to the rope, and all those aboard the ship were able to get across to the shore.
An unnamed Newfoundland is also credited for saving Napoleon Bonaparte in 1815. During his famous escape from exile on the island of Elba, rough seas knocked Napoleon overboard. A fisherman's dog jumped into the sea, and kept Napoleon afloat until he could reach safety.
Interesting Newfie Hystory Link
Drum roll please......
Here is Rhett: A Landseer version which means black and white. We drove to the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas to pick him up on Easter weekend this year! The photos of us with Rhett were taken on the trip to bring him home! He is quite the rowdy little boy and quite a block head!

And Also introducing his soul mate Scarlett....
She is about 5 weeks older than Rhett and is from the boarder of Wisconsin and Minnisota, she is the sweetest girl.
