Tuesday’s Rambles ~ 26 October 2010

First Baseball! 🙂

~ Tomorrow the World Series starts! GO GIANTS!!!!  Good Luck guys!

~ Still shaking my head about hearing Tim McCarver call Jeremy ‘AFLAC’ instead of Affeldt. Did he just say Aflac?! He’s a strange man.

~ Miss you Kruk & Kuip! More than you’ll ever know!

~ CSN Bay Area Sports Giants VideosI swear the best postgame interview was with Sergio Romo. He’s off on the right hand side (about 5 rows down)…between Freddy and Brian. That is one excited guy…haven’t seen a guy giggle like a little kid in quite a while. (10.23: NLCS Game 6 Postgame – Sergio Romo)

~ Started cutting out a new quilt.

Using Allison’s of Cluck.Cluck.Sew. All Patched Up pattern. I pulled out two Layered Cakes that I’ve had in my stash ~ Cotton Blossoms fabric by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.

*****************

~ I had to scrape the frost off of my car windows this morning! WOO HOO!

~ Bruce Willis still has it. John Malkovich is just plain crazy. Helen Mirren lovely, and badass, as always. Saw Red over the weekend. Loved it.

*****************

Some autumn leaves above the Truckee River.

This is one of my favorite condo buildings in downtown Reno…it’s right on the Truckee River across from Wingfield Park.

~ Sunday it rained and rained and rained…mostly horizontally, as the winds were very strong.

*****************

~ Picked up a few more Michael Perry books after reading Coop…started reading Population: 485 – Meeting your Neighbors One Siren at a Time. Also have Truck: A Love Story, Off Main Street: Barnstormers, Prophets & Gatemouth’s Gator, and Why They Killed Big Boy.

Nevada Humane Society’s Adoption Dance ~ Reno, NV

Nevada Humane Society Celebrates the Joy of Pet Adoption with Dance Video

YouTube™ Video is Spoof of JK Wedding Entrance Dance Video

Nevada Humane Society recently released a YouTube™ video, celebrating the joy of adopting a shelter pet. The video is a spoof of the highly popular “JK Wedding Entrance Dance” Video, viewed over 52 million times on YouTube™. The new video, “Adoption Entrance Dance Video” is about Cidney and Cooper’s big day at Nevada Humane Society.

Instead of groomsmen and bridesmaids dancing down the church aisles, adoption counselors and animal caregivers dance down the shelter hallway. In the original video, the bride meets her groom but in Nevada Humane Society’s video, a staff member dances a homeless dog to the waiting arms of his new person while onlookers cheer and clap.

“We produced this video to illustrate that pet adoption is truly a time of joy and celebration,” explains Diane Blankenburg, Community Programs Director for Nevada Humane Society. “Each time a pet is adopted, we ring a bell, cheer and clap to celebrate that another homeless pet is going to a loving home. There is a standing ovation each time one of these wonderful pets finds homes.”

Nevada Humane Society is located at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno and is open Sunday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. For more information, call 775-856-2000. Adopt a new pet today and help make Washoe County one of the safest communities for homeless animals. For more information, call 775-856-2000 or go online at NevadaHumaneSociety.org

I adopted Lucy, the wee tortie, from the Humane Society last June. She’s a silly Red-Head…lots of fun and a big love!

Lucy luvs her big brudder, Leo!
