True Confessions

In spite of all my good intentions yesterday, I managed to go back to Tonner Direct late last night to order Aragorn and Galadriel.  The grand total for the two gorgeous dolls was $86.40—practically free, right? Our addicted minds will tell us anything we want to hear. These had to be loss leaders or the dolls are less expensive to manufacture than I imagined.

This past weekend we drove northwest to Canandaigua, NY to visit George and Tim at Angelic Dreamz.  We were treated to a grand tour of the fabulous historic firehouse that is the shop and residence. The weather was amazingly warm in the upper 60's all weekend. Rudy brought some poodle puppy love to the guys who, themselves, were parents to a toy poodle for years.
We stayed at a lovely, dog friendly hotel called the Inn on the Lake.

Rudy doesn't particularly like the water and I wonder what he is thinking as he looks out on the lake. Notice he's not that close to the edge. Smart doggie.



I love the way the geese closest to the approaching dog have taken flight. He's quite the hunter. Hehe.
 

The pictures above were taken with my iPhone and processed with filters using an app called Snapseed.

  4. My wife is from the Rochester area and I've had the pleasure of visiting the Angelic Dreamz Shop during our summer family visits. It is an experience! I didn't get a personal tour--but was given much sweet customer service. They fetched quite a few things from the back to let me see up close and personal. It is quite a place to see and well worth stopping off if you are in that neck of the woods (and Waterloo Outlets aren't too far either. Much cheaper than Woodbury Commons).

  5. @Don: Aha...that's what my husband forgot to remind me about - the outlets. T

  6. @George: Believe me, I'm better off not having been reminded.

  7. I had to comment, after that "$50 adds up and I'm not doing that anymore" comment a few days ago. Thanks for my morning laugh. You are definitely not alone in this department.

    Darn. I lived in Rochester for 7 years and didn't know that Angelic Dreamz was in Canandaigua.

    Your lake pictures look like professional postcards.

  8. @Vanessa: I often can't find things I am holding in my own hands! Regarding these photos...the iPhone app seriously upped the image impact. It was a gray day but you'd never know it.
    Thanks for your comments.
