GABE Winners

Remember GABE?    We feel so fortunate to have been chosen as winners in Cody, Lady, Zena and Roy's most generous GABE give-away!Cody told us that only one of us could be in the portrait  give-away because it's a self-portrait so Mitch and I had to decide which one of us Aunt Suzi was going to paint.  Because I'm the oldest and wisest and best-looking, I was chosen!


Our package arrived in the mail a few days ago.
I got a personalized note from Aunt Suzi!
What an awesome job she did!  The painting looks just like me and that's my yellow ice cream collar that I'm wearing!  Aunt Suzi is a genius!
Thank you so very much Cody, Lady, Zena and Roy and thank you, Aunt Suzi!     I love my new painting and it will have a place of honor in our home!

Mom got a new computer a couple of days ago and she is slowing getting used to it.  Mom is OLD and she doesn't like change so please bear with us!  She'll get it. It will just take her a bit longer than it takes most "normal" hoomans!

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

Love ya lots,
Maggie

We love the painting.

And we're a technologically challenged bunch too. So we understand about getting used to a new computer.

What a great painting! We know all about computer illiteracy. We've had our new one for over a year and our mom still can't figure it out. She keeps saying, "Vista sucks!".

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Aire-hugs,
Penny & Patches

Hey, at least your mom actually is using her new computer. The fancy printer that came with our computer A YEAR AND A HALF AGO is still sitting in the box. That was a stunning portrait for sure.

Hi Friends! Been around but have been snooping a bit less, trying to enjoy the spectacular Alaskan summer we are enjoying. Temps in the 70s for the past week, sunny, glorious!!! Long days of sum. Taking the Pack on long hikes, enjoying the flowers, catching up with the neighbors sitting out in our driveways in our beach chairs.... Thinking of you and have checked on your last few posts. Love those cream colored oonies!!! xoxoxo

Huskee and Hershey said...

What a wonderful portrait of you Maggie!!!
Tell your mom to hang in there... our mom got a new computer recently too and she keeps hitting the wrong keys (even after 3 weeks) because the size of the keypad is slightly smaller than her previous one.. LOL!!

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

That is a beautiful portrait, Maggie. :)

We are just having a catch up read of your blog, our human has been bad at keeping up in blogger land lately.

We love Mitch's new collar, we didn't leave a comment on that post as we haven't been around much lately. So we thought it unfair to be in the competition but it sounds a really great prize. The collar is gorgeous.

Have a great week you two! :)

Stardust said...

Aunt Suzi is genius indeed, and you're so blessed Maggie! It's so flattering indeed. =D
