New Puppy!

Noka

Here is Noka…. our new Chocolate lab.  Picked her up today at a breeder in Silverlake, IN.

We were looking for a name, and Gary thought Godiva would be cool because its expensive (like a dog) and chocolate (like our dog).

Well, I think Godiva is a lame name for a dog… BUT, there is GOOGLE!  And a quick search tells me that Noka chocolate is in the top 5 most expensive chocolates in the world!  It is over $800 a pound!  That makes my dog a bargain at 13lbs and cost MUCH less than that!

I thought I would throw up some pics of a Hiking Stick/Mono-pod I made for my mom.  This summer she had back surgery, and that is when this all got started.  I thought it would help her get around once she was up and around, but thankfully she was up and around VERY quick.  Now she is doing great and has no need for a “cane”, but she is a photographer, and does need a mono-pod for her camera in the great outdoors.    I ended up finishing it Christmas eve morning and gave it to her for Christmas.  Here are some pics:

Here is a pic showing the adjustable hand lanyard.  It adjust up and down and the loop itself can be made bigger or smaller.  It consist of 3 complex knots.

Here is a pic showing the adjustable hand lanyard. It adjust up and down and the loop itself can be made bigger or smaller. It consist of 3 complex knots. The knot holding to the Hiking stick will slide up and down by hand, but will NOT move by pulling down on the lanyard if your hand is in it! There is a guy on the web selling a lanyard exactly like these for $25 PLUS shipping!! I of course made this on my own.

This shoes my art-inability of what is supposed to be a horse shoe (my mom has and loves horses).  The top section screws off to reveal the threaded camera mount.

OK, for the next five days(starting today December 20th, 2008), I am going to try and post on this blog what I read to my kids every year the 5 days leading up to Christmas and then we end on the morning of Christmas.  This is going to be copy and paste from the NLT (New Living Translation), with LOTS of text missing… I am only selecting the text I read to the kids for THIS story..  Here goes:

Starting in Luke 1:5b ending with Luke 1:25

Zechariah was a member of the priestly order of Abijah.   Zechariah and Elizabeth were righteous in God’s eyes.  He was chosen by lot to enter the sanctuary and burn incense in the Lord’s presence.  While the incense was being burned, a great crowd stood outside, praying.   Zechariah was in the sanctuary when an angel of the Lord appeared,  Zechariah was overwhelmed with fear.   But the angel said, “Don’t be afraid, Zechariah!  For God has heard your prayer, and your wife, Elizabeth, will bear you a son!  And you are to name him John.  He must never touch wine or hard liquor, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even before his birth.   He will precede the coming of the Lord, preparing the people for his arrival.” Zechariah said to the angel, “How can I know this will happen?  I’m an old man now, and my wife is also well along in years.” Then the angel said, “I am Gabriel! I stand in the very presence of God.  And now, since you didn’t believe what I said, you won’t be able to speak until the child is born.” Soon afterward his wife, Elizabeth, became pregnant and went into seclusion for five months.  “How kind the Lord is!” she exclaimed. “He has taken away my disgrace of having no children!”
