Oreo and the 4th

I took some pictures of Oreo with Spencer and with Tommy - now I need to get Taylor (he doesn't like his picture taking)  - On the 3rd of July when I went for my morning walk with Oreo a pitbull grabbed him by the head and wouldn't let go - some guys and the dogs owner got him to let go.  Anyway - he had to get some stitches and antibiotics.  I have been letting him rest and I went on a 4 mile walk by myself.

This is the first time we have been at the beach on the 4th and they did not sell fireworks because of the drought.  So, it was a quiet night.  The boys went fishing all night.

My morning walks . . .

Yesterday I walked to the house that is almost in the water and back ( about 8 miles I think) and then today I took Oreo to the bay.  He got in and started swimming around.  I may take him again tomorrow.

They are tearing down the cement pillars on the beach!

As long as I have been coming to this part of the TExas Coast, there were cement pillars about 2 miles from our condo - I walk to them and come back and know I walked four miles.  I noticed today they are taking them down.  A Big truck just went by with some of them on the back.  Here are some photos I took the other day when I walked down there -

Don't Eat too much Fish . . .

The boys love fishing and have been catching speckled trout, some flounder  but there is a warning about fish in Galveston Bay - they say to only eat 8 ounces, so I have not ate any but the rest of the gang is eating it.  They say we are far from the Galveston Bay and this fish is from the Gulf.  They seem to enjoy eating it.  I hope it is ok.
