    Coming Soon New Truck and Puppy
    This week Brandy and I have been going through the process of buying a new truck. We have been needing a newer more reliable family vehicle for some time. We had planned to go and test drive vehicles next week, however, we found one that we both really like and was within our budget so we decided to go ahead and purchase it and use the planned trip to Anchorage to bring the truck back. We also decided to get another dog and will be picking it up upon our return to Kodiak which will also be Brandy's birthday. I also found a really cool piece of memorabilia on eBay last week that I had sent to my brother for use in his garage bar that will be known as Mark's Pub in memory of our Dad.

    From Dog Groomers to Football
    Kita went to the dog groomers and had a spa day and got spoiled with her favorite activity of riding in the truck. Kalsin also had a speech evaluation over zoom and could not stay focused. Our favorite seasonal restaurant opened back up after winter and we got a chance to make the drive out to eat there! Lastly, the Indoor Football League started back up for 2021 and I am dedicating a portion of my blog Play Action Puffin to covering some of their games!

    Kita the Elkhound
    This week I entered a writing contest with a prompt about stray dogs. So, I wrote about two basset hounds my dad had when I was a kid. These two were named Bonnie and Clyde and their names were no accident. After, reminiscing about those two I made Kita her own Twitter account. I also discuss other dogs from my past such as Fred the Wanderer and Bullet the wiener dog named for a Creed song.

    Dodger

    This week I rearranged my living room and in doing so I reflected on how some of the challenges that came with that are similar to some of the larger issues that life often throws at me. Also, Kalsin got a new hot wheels track and a car named Roger Dodger!
