So, I took the heathens to the school Wednesday to play on the baseball field and got some random shots... First.. a wore out Rolls Royce.







I came across this bug, I believe it's a locust or something relative to a locust (can't remember what they're called), and this one had clearly been in a battle with something. Considering it was still alive and moving around quite well, I reckon it won the battle, lol. Just thought I'd share with ya.

The Injury


Rounding 1st base, lol

Safe at 1st... (it kept coming towards me lol)

Hangin 6 lol

Still hangin in there

Intriguing little bug...

It was trying to get me again



Notice the wound here... !?

Well, hope you enjoyed my randomness lol. Thanks so much for looking.

Aw! Thanks Krystal. He's a sweet boy, very loveable and gentle with Trinity (except when he has the zoomies, lol). He's a mama's boy, though. He's also very protective of Trinity and me. He don't like anybody coming near us. Don't let that sweet face fool ya.

Aww, what type of dog is Rolls Royce? He is adorable!
Honestly, I don't know. Best guess would be Lab/GSD mix. He's a shelter mutt. But Thank You for your compliment!

@Celestial88, that was what I was trying to think of.. they did a broadcast on the news here in mid-late Spring about how they destroy the trees/plants here in East TN and how to protect against them lol. I couldn't think of it, but knew it started with a C lol.

Thanks everyone for your compliments. Roller's my love-bug puppy. His ears have so many different looks to them, it's funny. Sometimes they almost go half prick they're trying to stand, but I believe at 6 1/2 months old, if they were going to stand, they would have already.

I know, its crazy isn't it Lisa!? Roller's growing so fast its just amazing... I'm gonna work on a new signature banner showing when I first got him (when I was watching him) to now... it'd be interesting to see how he's grown lol. He says thank you for the compliment and he sends kisses. He's not much of a kisser, but he's not a sloppy, slobbery kisser either lol.
