Mattie's in da house

"ALOHA!" from me, Mattie.
It's been a busy week for mom, she just wanted to me to pop in and say hello! HELLO! and ask how you are HOW ARE YOU? and let you know she will be visiting blogs in person as soon as she's done with a bunch o'deadline-heavy work-related stuff that's due early this week...


Random veg sign.



It's a pig's world.



Catastrophe!? Meowza!




This photo captures the glee (?) of a post-5K race last weekend at which Heidi's dad, Peter, finished second overall (he's super-fast), and mom... uh... well, let's just say she was waaaaaaaay behind, but she was third in her age group. Not sure how many others were in her age group though! HA! Heidi and i were there scopin' things out for snacks 'n' stuff at the post-race festivities. Lotsa goodies...





Where's Mommy?






P.S.

If you have some spare change, there're some groovy auctions goin' on right now to help abandoned cocker spaniels (like i once was!):



P.S. 2

Got teens?



P.S. 3

HUGS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD WEEKEND AND WEEK!

Congratulations on placing 3rd. Well, I guess I should first say congratulations on even running the darned race in the first place. That's more than I can say for myself. Way to go! You look so great and healthy. Great pic of you and Peter. Hope things settle down for you soon.

((hugs)) to you and Mattie!!!!!

Shananigans said...

Hi Mattie! I've missed you and your mama. Lookin' good in those running shorts ;) I'm starting week 8 of my couch to 5 k program today, but it's really only a 5 k if you're averaging a 10 min mile. Oh well, at least I can say I can jog slowly for 30 consecutive minutes, which is more than I could say just a few short months ago. Hope all is well and the work monster hasn't eaten you Kleo!

Dori said...

Hi Mattie,
Thanks for the update on your mama! Looks like you have been taking good care of her. Tell her hi and Peter too. {{scratches for your ear}}

bazu said...

Hey Mattie,

Jackie said...

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Candi said...

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

Carrie™ said...

Happy Thanksgiving!
I've been working like a fiend and never seem to have any free time. The last time we were in touch I was on my break at work. Now it's midnight and I'm doing laundry. Geez! My schedule looks like it's going to carry on this way for a few weeks. I hope you, Mattie, Peter, your parents and Peter's parents are all well and had a wonderful day today. I'll text you soon!

Jody from VegChic said...

Hey Mattster! ---Oh yea, hi to you too Kleo, lol!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that those pesky deadlines aren't giving you too much trouble.

Valentina said...

Congratulations for the running race!

Candi said...

Hi Kleo! Thank you for your comment today! :) I LOVED seeing you in my comments section and ran here to see if you've blogged! lol! You are sooo missed you know!

Anyhow, it was great to see your comment. You are SO sweet and you make my day.

**hugs**
Pet Mattie for me!
Love,
Candi

Carrie™ said...

A-ha!! Like Candi, I saw your comment on my blog and rushed right over here. Poopy. No update. All in good time. I know you're swamped.
And, no, that's not Rick Springfield! As a Rick-lover you know that. It's the guy that does the news on CNN. He used to be on CBS. Waaaay long time ago - in the 80's - he was a VJ on Much Music. And the first video on MM wasn't BA or RS. It was Rush. Never a big fan, but *shrug* they're there. Whatever.
I've got a surprise for you that I'm packing up to mail!! Watch your box for it. :o)

Emmy said...

Hey girlie!!! Just wanted to say it's great to see back online...even if it's just commenting on blogs :) Hope all is well. *HUGS*

amygeekgrl said...

thanks for the comment today, kleo and mattie. ;)
hope to see an update from you soon.

Peter Matthes said...
