As some of you may know...I am moving BACK TO THE CITY this weekend! To St. Paul specifically.

Could not be more excited! We've lived in the 'burbs for a good five years now.

I'm ready for a change and Java Train is within a block of our new house. As is a zoo.

That's right. A zoo.

Jealous much?

I will promise to try and share with all of you so you can live vicariously through me (zoo wise.)

I'm rambling. And the title of this post was about priorities.

On a beautiful 79 degree day here in Minnesota yesterday...as I ran errands..I saw this and turned around to appreciate it and to take a photo.
Yes, folks. Neighbors Bar in Albertville on a sunny and warm Monday at around 2pm.

Look closely and you will see someone's Little Rascal parked right outside!

It made me laugh out loud. I'm not sure why I found it so darling yet so odd.

A beautiful day after 7 months of winter and snow horror. But this ride stopped at the bar. I envision this person taking a nice ride and coming upon the bar thought "Do I have a PBR in me? Let's just do it! It's Monday! Let's celebrate."

Or...a regular. The parking of the Rascal might show that there's some comfort there. Is that a legal parking spot for a "vehicle"?

My sweet Daisy a.k.a. Zazzle. I have posted this photo before but it's so cute that it had to be shared again! She's better now after her tooth surgery. She's crabby again, so we realized she's back to her old self. She was really happy while hopped up on the pain meds!

Curtis in fashion forward-bowtie pet jewels. Bedazzle!

He found a dead mouse in the field behind our house yesterday. His girlfriend Brandy who lives behind us left it for him. I know because it was just sitting there by our firepit while Brandy stared at us from across the nature preserve. I took the dog scoop the other day and threw it into said field. Curtis found it after dinner.

SO. GROSS. Yet I'm almost used to it.

He ate the whole thing, crunching it...dropping it, picking it up. Almost as if to horrify me more.

I tried the usual treats, throwing of balls...to get him to leave it so I could get rid of it. Nope.

In the end, I caught him rubbing his head and body ALL over it. Then he ate it all.

Pigpen got a bath and was not happy. Ugh!

As I have related various stories to my BFF about him, she told me about a close friend of hers who has a dog who ONCE..wait for it..threw up a gopher's head in her living room!

I guess I should be thankful.

Can you get ebola from that?!

Back to packing!

I know that dead animal smell...gag! Why do they have to roll in it???
Looking forward to your zoo adventures and I'm wondering if you too will have your 'vehicle' parked outside the bar soon???
Glad Zazzaisy is back to her old grumpy self and tell Curtis to stop being so gross. As if he'd listen.
Boy dogs don't listen.
xo, TOT
