Oskar Blues 4 Miler 2015

Happy Wednesday friends!  Did you have a good St. Patrick's Day? I spent the day taking Reina back to the vet and getting our kitchen sink fixed.  Boo!  Far from the partying St. Patrick’s days of my “youth,” but that’s ok :-)  The Vet said Reina's knee is still not healed, but it is looking [...]
