We Are Infested

These stoopid ladybugs have been inside our house all winter long and they're getting worse as the warmer temps are heading in!  Does anyone else have this problem?
There are at least 100 of them on this window~
Mom vacuums them up with the sweeper daily but we can't seem to gain on them!

 And they walk all over the floors even getting inbetween the floorboards. 
 Why can't they go outside and hang around on the beautiful flowers!

We are hoping they disappear outside soon.  How the heck did they get in here anyway?!

So until next time...........

Love ya lots♥

Hello ☺

Hi everybody.  Do you recognize me?
I have an ice cream collar on.   It was one of my very favorite treats!

How about now?   My very favorite toy in the whole wide world was Mr Carrot!  Mom needle felted him for me ☺
 Quilt blocks for the Quilting bee have been done of me and Mr Carrot~
Annette's House in 2003~
AireLifted in 2004~
Carol Usher needle felted a mini-me with Mr Carrot~

I arrived here just days after Mitch Cuddle Clone did.  It's a shame that we couldn't have traveled in the same box together.    Mom has been waiting for me since November 2014 too.
I'm Maggie Cuddle Clone!
 Mitch and Molly look a wee bit stunned, don't they~
 Maggie and Mitch Cuddle Clone!  We are lovin' it!
So until next time..............

Mitch CuddleClone

Hi everyone.  My name is Mitch -  Mitch CuddleClone to be exact. 

 See - it says so on my hiney.   I was made by the CuddleCone folks in Kentucky and mom has been waiting since November 2014 for me to arrive. 
 I like it here! Everyone is so nice to me and guess what?   Mom has already made me an apple bandana so I can look just like the real Mitch.    Yes, I know - I'm a tad bit lighter than he is. 
 And Molly says that my tail is supposed to be stubbed like the real Mitch instead of regulation AireTail length but I like my tail just the length that it is. 
 I can tell that I'm going to have a lot of fun with my new brother and sissy. 
 Mitch tells me that I'm supposed to love apples just like he does.  Okay!
Now you can see my new collar.  Yes, it's Mitch's collar. He said that I could have it.  It has hamburgers and french fries and yummy stuffs on it.  He has already clued me in about Glenwood and what a yummy place it is!  I'm in!    And I'm wearing a Mitch tag so I'm official!
Yup, I'm really going to like it here!
So until next time...............

Love ya lots♥

Our April Review

Miss Sydney from Chewy sent us an email a few days ago asking us what we would like to review for the month of April.   What we chose and what mom wanted us to choose were two different things. 

 We whined to Miss Sydney that a grooming brush wasn't our idea of a fun item to review, - it was our moms idea and Miss Sydney told us that she made sure there was something very yummy in there for us.  Is she the bestest or what?!

Yup, there's the FURminator Dual Brush and OMD, Miss Sydney kept her word - there are chicken jerky treats in there too!  Thank you, thank you, Miss Sydney ☺
 Mom couldn't WAIT to try out the brush and her first victim was Molly.   Molly usually runs from any sort of comb or brush.  She'd rather be MessyMolly~
 Mom was so pleased with how well the brush worked and couldn't wait to offer Molly a Dogswell Chicken Jerky treat.    
I have to admit that you do look very soft and pretty, Molly!
 I don't mind being being brushed and combed.  I never have.   Mom loves hugging us and kissing the tops of our heads while she's making us look pretty so it's okay with me. 
 Molly was just groomed this past weekend so she doesn't really have a whole lot of fur to brush and I was groomed not long ago but look at the haire this FURmintor brush pulled off of us!   Mom couldn't be more pleased.  She's already put our new brush in the kitchen drawer so this means she'll be using it every single day!
 How do we look, mom? 
 More chicken jerky, please!
 Check out the neat cover that comes with the FURminator dual brush!  Calm down, mom - it's only a brush.   And please stop taking pictures.  You're blinding me with the flash!
Thank you so very much, Miss Sydney and Chewy!  You have made our mom and us VERY happy campers!  You are the BEST!

So until next time.............

Love ya lots♥

Super Top Secret

Mom and dad had to go over to Crumpies to photograph an antique boat builder's chest for a friend.

 This is the inside of the chest just in case you were wondering~~
 And this is all of the stuffs that's inside~~

 And because of the pretty floors inside the barn, guess where we had to wait.  
 But wait - and this is the top secret part of it.    We're not supposed to be inside on the pretty floors. shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
It was all dad's idea!

 It sure was nice to be back♥

Bless you, dad, and THANK YOU!

So until next time..........

2.  Copy and paste the Liebster Award logo onto your own blog.
3.  Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
4.  Answer 11 questions posed to you by the person who nominated you.
5.  List 11 random facts about yourself.
6.  Nominate and link 3-11 other blogs that you enjoy.
7.  List 11 questions for your Liebster Award nominees on you blog.
8.  Inform your nominees by leaving a comment on there blog.

1.  Do you do anything that really annoys your peeps and what is it that you do??
This time of the year, the ducks and geese are searching for green grass and they're all over our yard leaving us yummy snacks.  Our mom  can't stand it when we snag mouthfuls of goosey poo!

2. Have you ever escaped from your yard and if so where did you go??
I, Molly, slipped out of the barn last year when dad's friend was coming for a visit.  I chased a goose right back into the pond where he belonged!   I was shocked to discover that I was in the pond and soaking wet and when dad called me, I hurried right back to him for safety. It was sure fun!

3. Have you ever caught a critter and what did you do with it if you did?? Did you eat it??
I, Mitch, am the bestest mouser and I've caught a few mice.  I don't eat them but I sure do get them all gooey and slimy and nasty rolling them around in my mouth.  If you need a mouser, call me - I'm available!

4. What’s your very favourite food in the whole world and are you allowed to eat it??
That's an easy one - pizza and ice cream and yes, we do get to have it- not a lot but some is better than none!

5.  If you’re a bloke do you cock to pee or do you squat like a Sheila??  Same for you Sheila’s … do you cock your leg?  Our Lucy did??  She was out there for a sheila.  She would even cock against a tree ….. just like a bloke.  Weird, aye??
I, Mitch, can go either way.  I can lift my leg or I can pee like a girl.    Molly only squats - no leg lifts for her.  

6. Do you drink out of the big white bowl in the bathroom?
Is that what that big white bowl is for, Charlie?    It won't do us any good because our mom keeps the seat down all the time.  

7. Have you ever had a go at agility, flyball, lure coursing, etc. etc. etc. and how good at it were/are you????
Never -  but I, Molly, would sure love to!

8. Have you EVER competed at Westminster, Crufts or the equivalent in your country, or even dreamt about being a competitor at Westminster or Crufts etc.?
We hear that's a whole lot of work and a whole lot of groomies.  We'll pass.  

9. Has your Mom and Dad ever left you behind while they went away for a holiday. Where did they leave you and how did you greet them when they returned??
This has never happened to us in our entire lives so far.  It did happen to angel Maggie one night and only one time.  It happened on Nantucket because the hotel where mom and dad stayed for one night changed their pet policy and no dogs were allowed in the rooms.  Maggie had to spend the night at the Nantucket vets and when mom went to pick her up early the next morning, Maggie snubbed her and treated her like the enemy.   To this day, mom still regrets not sleeping in the car with Maggie for the entire night.

10. Is there any peep or other of your own kind that you really hate and why??
I, Mitch, am very leery of toddlers and young hoomans and will keep my distance.   Molly loves everybody!    We do have issues on our walks on leash.    We don't hate any of the pups but I do bark at them and tell them off.  Molly's issue is different.  She appears to be afraid but her tail is held high the whole time and she bites and twirls on her leash for security.  What's up with that?!

11.  Do you get raw meaty bones to eat and if so what kind of bones are your very favourite??
We used to get them more often until some blabbermouth told our mom that marrow bones are very hard and can break old toofies and now mom doesn't want to buy them for us anymore.  boooooooooooooo

As you know, us Airedales don't always play by the rules.     We think Charlie's questions were brilliant and we would love for anyone and everyone to answer these questions if you want to and post them to your blog.   We don't want to pick and choose because this is a superbusy Easter week for so many so if you'd like to play then please do!

Thanks, Charlie!  That was lots of fun☺

So until next time...........

Love ya lots♥

Ricotta Almond Cake

Our Nonna was the best Italian cook in the whole wide world - maybe it was because she was born in Italy and lived there until she got married.   Nonna baked many Italian desserts that mom makes because she insists on carrying on holiday traditions.
One dessert that mom has never had (because Nonna never made it) is Ricotta Almond Cake. It's made at Easter.   A site on facebook posted a "Cooking with Nonna" link and mom read the recipe and immediately started to drool.

It's 1 pound of ricotta and 1/2 pound of almond paste, 4 eggs, 3/4 cup sugar and the juice of 1/2 an orange.  That's it - so simple!

Mix ingredients well and pour into a well-buttered  8" X 8" pan.  Bake at 400 degrees for approx 1 hour until it's a beautiful golden color.  Test with toothpick.

 We didn't get to lick the beaters because very little batter was on them but we did get a taste of ricotta off the spoon. 
 More please!
We wish we could ask Nonna why she never made this cake before.  We can only guess that she had her favorites at Easter and didn't need another cake to bake.

This cake is soooooooo simple.  It doesn't even have a crust so it's healthier for you, right?!
And the taste - yummmmmmmmmm.  If you like marzipan and that intense almond taste, this cake is for you.   It's wonderfully flavorful and rich and delicious!   We will definitely be making this again and again!

We had snow showers all day yesterday!  What happened to spring?!

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly
