I did drive past the Christmas lights house that I talked about before..I'm pretty sure its at the Corner of 192nd & Santa Fe, and its pretty amazing, so if you ever drive that way, check it out.. Then I went and met my Step-mom and Sister for Supper at the Pepperoni Grill..Yum. Still happy to say that I have lost 21 pounds. We walked yesterday, even though it was miserable outside..The babes needed their exercise! So we did our usual mile freezing the whole way!! Thank goodness for IPODS!
Then I got home and thought I would put out a few more lights, only to notice that someone had STOLEN my Metal Christmas tree from my front yard! What Toolie Toolertons!! I can't believe that! Its not like I live in a bad neighborhood!! GEESH..Dang ol'Grinches!!

Well the Dogs and I are headed West this weekend. I haven't got to see the Elk City Christmas Park lights Spectacular, and its one of the best in the state, so I think we will do that. I've also got to take some Christmas presents back to folks, so it will be a fun weekend.
I have Sawyer a bath yesterday, and he was so fluffy and puffy that while he was walking around I said to myself, "If he were not mine, I would totally steal him from whoever had him".. And thats true..He's so cute! He will be excited to go to the farm and play with his BFF Izzy, the Aussie..He loves to play so much!
Mom is making Eggnog This weekend, and I'm going to help her wrap Christmas presents.. You all have a Happy Weekend!

Yesterday was Payslee's first therapy visit to Norman Regional Hospital. She was asked to be a part of a therapy team, which is pretty awesome since she is barely a year old. I can honestly say,(and not just because she's mine)she did AWESOME! I was so proud of that little girl! The way it works is that the nurses bring in the patients who are working on Physical Therapy, or Speech therapy into the therapy room, and instead of doing their usual work they get to work with the dogs. So they take turns brushing the dogs, throwing the ball, petting, combing, leashing, etc..It helps them work on their coordination and they just love it! Payslee was just supposed to observe yesterday, but she was hamming it up in her Santa dress and matching bow! So all the patients kept asking for her..and she would go to them, and lay down and wait for them to talk sweet to her, and then she would let them pet her, or she would dance around for them..She is so flipping cute! Then we went around to individual rooms for the folks that couldn't get out and walk around, and Pays just sat there on their beds and got some loving, and gave kisses! Yay Pays! We will go back again next month.

We had our Tyler Christmas party on Friday night at the Harn Homestead..Geesh! It was cold Friday night! The Happy news is that I won something!! Hooray! Its the first time I've ever won something at the Christmas party!!
Then on Saturday Morning Lynn & I got up early to host the Cowboy Christmas Parade in the stockyards. It was a cold morning, but we had a great crowd! Santa was there in his sleigh for the kiddos, and I LOVED watching the Longhorns walk down the streets!
After the Parade I waited on Mom to come up and then we went to eat Sush at "In the Raw" in bricktown. We had never been before, and it was delish..I, Of course, had Sushi..They had other stuff though, noodle bowls, steaks, etc..It was yummy..Mom and I split 3 really good Sushi rolls..I swear I could eat Sushi everyday!
After delicous Sush, we headed to the Ford Center to see Trace and Martina! When Mom met Trace he told her she looked very "Yellow" and that made her laugh, so thats why she is laughing in the pic..but look how pretty my mom is!! Of course Trace was awesome on stage, and even did a little Christmas music! He sang "Chestnutts Roasting on an Open fire" and it was tremendous.
Martina came out wearing lots of jewels, so I was pumped about that..She had on a Sequin Vest, and sequin shoes! She didn't do any Christmas music, but she sang "Lean on Me" and that was cool..She also rode a giant moon out into the crowd and then she sang to the back of the Ford Center which was nice for the folks in the back..That girl can SING..Every song she sings when she gets finished you are like, "Wowza..what a voice".. It was a great show.
Mom stayed the night with me and on Sunday we were on a shopping mission. We got quite a bit of it done at Burlington Coat Factory, and then we headed to Penn Square for a bit..I've only got a couple of folks left to buy for, so I'm doing pretty good..Guess what I found at Burlington? A Santa outfit for Sawyer!! I KNOW! I'm so excited..I'm going to try to pose those babes this afternoon for some Christmas Cuteness!! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!! XXOO
Friday, December 4, 2009
Well Yesterday I took Sawyer to Sterling house Assisted Living, and we had a good visit. Several of the other therapy dogs showed up, and Saw didn't cry for them, so I was proud of him for that..However, he still doesn't love the little old people petting him!! When they would reach down to pet him, he would just kinda turn the other way! If I picked him up he did a little better..but its definately something we are going to have to work on..He also kept trying to hug the other dogs necks, and the Rottweiler, Emma, did NOT like that, so we'll also have to work on him not hugging the other dogs faces..I have no idea why he loves to do that. He did take a really cute picture by the Christmas tree though!! And he's soft.. lol..
Tomorrow Lynn & I are going to be at the Stockyards Rodeo Parade at the Corner of Agnew & Exchange in Cowtown..You should come out, because this is the one where they walk the Giant Longhorns down the middle of the road! Its very cool..It starts at 10am tomorrow..
Then of course tomorrow is my Delicious Trace Adkins..Yes, he is an awful interview, but he's a GREAT entertainer..I've probably seen him 10 times, but I love it everytime I go! HE's amazing, and that voice!! MM MM! Mom's coming up to go with me, and so is Lauren..It will be good times. Mom is also bringing up some delicious homemade Egg Nog! Woohoo! Have a great weekend!

I also made the dog-babes meatballs yesterday because when I'm training them I have to have very HIGH value treats so they will do what I want!! But then I also have to make the meatballs where I don't want to eat them, so I added liver bits to them..lol..Now I don't want to touch them! But Dang..they smell so good when coming out of the oven!! They worked too, because I got Sawyer to do his new "Bang! You're dead!" trick in like 2 seconds because he wanted that meatball so bad!! If you want to make them just take some hamburger meat, a little milk, cheese, and green beans and roll them up into a ball and put them in a cupcake tin for about 30 minutes..I promise your dogs will love them!! Plus they can be big or small because you can pull them apart.. So there ya go!
Today Sawyer & I are going to Sterling House in Edmond for a Therapy Visit. This is his first one so I'm hoping he tries to be a little more friendly. Sometimes he's just not interested in anything but himself!!
I'm already tired of TV right now..Since Dancing with the Stars everyone has been putting on crap TV. Last night they had Reruns of one of my Fav shows, "Modern Family" & "Cougar Town"..How can they already be reruns! The show just started not that long ago! Now I'll be forced to watch the ID channel and the 1099th episode of "Dateline".. haha! Some Saturdays I will watch that channel for 7 hours!!
Today I found out that when Men wear their shirts open where you can see their chests its called "Heavage"..Like Cleavage, but for a man its Heavage..And supposedly its making a comeback for Men to show a little chest hair..We'll see if it catch on in Oklahoma! Speakin of...Did you go see Sarah Palin today? I did not..There is no one (With the exception of the Lord) that I would wait outside in this weather to see.. Not Even My Delicious Otto..Sorry, James..
Wednesday, December 2, 2009
Well I went to the Doctor yesterday and I have lost 18 pounds on my diet!! Woo hoo..I'm starting week 4 today, so I'm pretty happy about that.. See..ITs eating all that Sushi! lol.. I've also been walking, running, rollerblading over a mile, 7 days a week..So thats helpful too..I can't quit eating popcorn, or drinking wine, so I have to burn those calories some how!!
Yesterday I put the dog babes in their Christmas gear..As you can see, they are less than enthusiastic..I'll try to dress them up again later in the week, because I didn't get a good picture of Payslee's Santa Dress..Although Sawyer is pretty cute in his Santa hat, and Payslee's little smirk makes me laugh!!
Tomorrow I'm taking Saw to the therapy visit at Sterling house in Edmond..We'll see how it goes..Well it rained all night last night on the North Side..Hoping to steer clear of the sleet..Makes it hard to rollerblade!! If you haven't got the Gospel CD, they make great stocking stuffers..lol..Just click on the BUY NOW to get it..

Yesterday I found an awesome gift..It was a bottle of wine, and you could put a picture of YOUR dog on it..How great is that! So I was all jolly, until I realized they won't ship to Oklahoma! What is that about! We have strange liquor laws in this state.. So now thats OUT.
I'm getting excited about this weekend.. TRACE ADKINS! We'll be giving away front-row seats this week, so listen for your chance to win! We've also got the King Country Christmas Catalog going on at KKNG.com, its got a lot of goodies in it too!
I took Payslee to visit my Hospice friend yesterday. Payslee just loves Miss Dorothy! She waits for her to say its okay, then she jumps on her lap and waits for Miss Dorothy to pet her..Sawyer on the other hand, is not 'excelling' at the therapy work, but we have a visit scheduled for Thursday, so I'm going to take him and see how he does..He may just be suited for "Cuteness".. lol.. Have a good day!

Wednesday, November 25, 2009
I didn't hang the outside lights, or put up the outside decorations..My neighbor has already put up red lights outside, but hasn't turned them on yet, so I still have time..I'll probably do that next week.
This year I am going to BEDLAM for the first time in my life! Its in Norman, and I have no idea what to expect..So Yesterday I made a trip to the "Store Divided" and bought some excellent OSU gear..I hope the weather is nice, and its a good time..and I don't get punched in the face.. Those are
all nice Thanksgiving thoughts.. lol.. I've never
even been in the Norman Stadium, so this could be quite entertaining with me picking the wildest game ever to make my first appearance too!
I'm headed to the farm for Thanksgiving today..Then I think Mom wants to come back up here on Friday to do a little 'Black Friday' shopping..Not sure how much we will get done with all the crowds and such, but it will be fun. I'm taking the dog babes home to the farm, and Payslee will wear her Thanksgiving dress.. As I write this and read it back to myself, I realize that I have officially become 'That guy' that puts clothes on her dogs..Dang. Oh well..I can't help it if she's so cute that she needs a dress for every occasion!! Mom has invited a family from California over for Thanksgiving, and I'm not sure if my Crazy Grandma is going to be there or not..If she is, I'll try to get audio!!
I'm so very thankful for all my blessings that God gives me everyday.. And I'm thankful that people actually care enough about my life to read this blog everyday..so thank you all for embracing me, and KKNG..We are always the most thankful for our amazing listeners that make us laugh everyday. Even Jimmy Ray Mohawk, and Tom who call us and tell us the most ridiculous stuff ever..We love that too! So thanks to all of you who help us do what we do everyday! Happy Thanksgiving, be safe!

Oh, and if you need something delish for your Thanksgiving Table go to www.cusackmeats.com I went yesterday and got myself the boneless Turkey Roast & Spiral ham!! MM MM!~
Seriously with the leaves..Are they ever going to go away..or blow away shall I say.. I see them each day.. hey hey hey.. Okay, enough with the rhyming..Anyway..(woops rhymed again).. They are all over my backyard, and for some reason the dog babes find them just facinating and fun to run and frolic about in, they chew on them, carry them into my house, get them in their hair..etc.. I'm pretty much tired of the leaves at this point..However, Sunday Payslee came into the house and I just had to take a picture of her..I call these, "Hannibal Lector Payslee Leaf Head"
She had them on her nose, in her hair, on her eyes! And it didn't seem to bother her! So yeah, I'll be glad when the leaves leave (get it)..haha.. My yard!
Watched Dancing with the Stars last night.. I still think the best Dancer is Mya, but I do hope Donny wins..He's just more fun than she is! They'll decide the winner tonight!!
By the Way if you haven't seen Paula Deen get hit in the face with a ham..Here's that..

I had a great weekend of doing nothing but Watching Movies. Saturday Lauren & I went to see "Precious".. It was a movie that Oprah was raving about with the comic, Monique in it..but it is NOT a comedy, so don't go see it thinking that it is..Its a good movie, but VERY dark, and sad..Its worth seeing, but its a very DARK DARK movie..So If you are looking for something uplifting & Upbeat..This is NOT it..
Then after that one we went to see "The Blind Side" with Sandra Bullock & Tim Mcgraw..It was SOOO good! I'm serious..You have to go see this movie! Its uplifting, amazing, and based on a true story! You will probably shed a few tears, but its good tears, and it will make you feel happy that there are still some good people left in the world!
Afterwards we did a little Christmas shopping..The second I stepped into the mall there was an amazing Christmas smell permeating the air..The closer I walked to the movies..the stronger it got till I finally realized where it was coming from: Bath & Body Works!! So I went right up to the sales girl and asked which magical smell was burning. Well it was a candle called "Fresh Balsom".. MM MM MM!! It smelled just like Yummy Christmas tree winter magic!! So I went ahead and bought the oil to burn in my oil burner thingy, and the Wallflowers that plug into my Wallflower holder. Now my house smells like a Winter Wonderland!! We also walked by Victoria's secret where they had some really cute Velour Track suits..but some of the pants had words written on the butt.. Hello, I don't need someone reading words on my butt! I spend half the time trying to cover up my butt, so why would I write "JUICY" on it? I think if you look at it long enough maybe "JUICY" or "THICK" will come to mind..lol...
Can you believe a Year ago My little Payslee was just about ready to come home with me!! Now she's my beautiful, little shih-tzu girl!! Time flies!
I told this on the air this morning:
PHONES IN CHURCHES
A man in Topeka, Kansas decided to write a book about churches around the country.
He started by flying to San Francisco and started working east from there.
Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and making notes. He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was intrigued with a sign, which read "Calls: $10,000 a minute.."
Seeking out the pastor he asked about the phone and the sign. The pastor answered that this golden phone is, in fact, a direct line to heaven and if he pays the price he can talk directly to GOD. The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way. As he continued to visit churches in Seattle, Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Milwaukee, and many cities and towns all around the United States, he found more phones, with the same sign, and the same answer from each pastor.
Finally, he arrived in Oklahoma, upon entering a church in OKLAHOMA CITY, behold - he saw the usual golden telephone.
But THIS time, the sign read "Calls: 35 cents" Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor, "Reverend, I have been in cities all across the country and in each church I have found this golden telephone and have been told it is a direct line to Heaven and that I could talk to GOD, but in the other churches the cost was $10,000 a minute. Your sign reads only 35 cents a call. Why?" The pastor, smiling broadly, replied, "Son, you're in OKLAHOMA now ... You're in God's Country. It's a local call."

She also got a brand new dress in yesterday. Its her "Fall Leaves" dress, and this wonderful woman named Debbie hand makes them for her, and at such a good price! If you haven't seen her little dog dresses go to www.doggiedudsbydeb.com They are very reasonably priced, and she does SUCH a great job with them!! I already ordered Payslee's Christmas Dress!!
I didn't take Sawyer again..I know.. I know.. But I have been working with him about his crying when he can't play with other dogs, and he is getting better..I was trying to take pics of Payslee in her new dress, and Mr. Camera smiler hog kept jumping in the picture!!
This weekend I'm going to the movies..that I know for sure. I'm going to go see "The Blind Side" and "Precious"..I've been wanting to see them for weeks! I'm also sad about Oprah leaving, but excited that she will have her own Cable Channel..then I can watch.. All Oprah all the time!!
You all have a great weekend!!!

Sorry I haven't written since Monday..Wanna know why? BECAUSE I'M LAME!! lol.. Sorry, but its true..My body has rebelled against the time stage and I find myself in bed by 8:00 or 8:30! Its ridiculous I know.. but after the dogs and I walk or rollerblade we come in, have dinner, and then I want to take my bath, and hit the hay! Speakin of..Last night when I headed to the bedroom I had left my back door open so the babes could play outside, and it got too cold in there I guess, because my memory foam was as hard as a BRICK! It took it awhile to 'thaw' out.. lol..
However, Yesterday I did make the Meatballs for the dogs. I needed some really, tasty dog treats to motivate them when we are training..So I took some hamburger meat from the farm, cheese, milk, & Fish oil, and baked them some magic meatballs..they LOVE them! So thats good..They are a bit messy for treating, but it motivates them. Right now we are learning: Say your prayers, weave, Bang your dead, Peek-a-boo, and they are both still jumping through the hoop, and going to their spot..Each day we just add a little more to their training stuff..They are both doing very well..Sawey has "Bang your dead" down, and he rolls over and throws his puffy feet in the air.. Pretty cute..
Tonight Payslee & I are going to the Fountains at Caterbury, an assisted living center for a therapy visit. I'm hoping her new "Fall Leaves" dress comes in so she can play in that. The little ladies love it when she is dressed up! Her Santa dress should be in this week too.
So People Magazine revealed their 'Sexiest man Alive' issue, and once again Johnny Depp won the title..I'm not sure I buy into that..I'm going with Matthew.McConaughey, but others who made the list: Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bradley Cooper, Robert Downey, Jr., David Beckham, Glee's Corey Monteith, Matthew Morrison and Mark Salling, Adam Lambert and Robert Pattinson from Twilight. Where is my Delicious Otto? My Trace Adkins? My Gary Allan? All SNUBBED AGAIN! Have a great day!

Saturday Mom made some eggnog. We have this secret, special, eggnog recipe that everyone just LOVES..so we made a big ol' batch to take to some friends. Then she made some homemade chicken and noodles and Payslee & Saw were very excited to have a little taste of that!! I also played mom's WII for the first time..HOW FUN! Although I didn't like it when I got on the WII fit and it let out a groan when I stepped on! WHAT! Then it makes you look all tubby.. lol.. Oh well..such is life..But I seriously don't need a video game to tell me I'm fat either! I hope Santa Clause is bringing me one though..its very fun to play..
Yesterday we went to look at some of our Show Calves that we raised. We have a Bull "Renegade" and two Heifers "Lydia" and "Lexus".. Lydia won Reserve GRand at the Kansas City Royal a couple of weeks ago (thats a big deal) and Renegade is going to show at the Denver Cattle Show.. Look how pretty they are!
They are all tied up in the Cooling room (A room with 3 air condidioners and 7 fans) until the Weather stays cold so they don't lose all that pretty hair..These are very pampered calves!!
Enjoy the Winter Weather!

I'm not very superstitious, but I did find a few things that are considered "Bad Luck"
Begin a new job or a trip
Cut off both ends of a loaf of bread
Flip your mattress
Put new shoes on the table
Leave your hat on the bed
Walk under a ladder
Pour water on a windowsill
Lean a broom on a bed
Open an umbrella indoors
Wear new clothes
Cut your hair
Sneeze to your left side
Have a black cat cross your path
So be careful! Last night I took Payslee on a therapy visit to Sterling House in Edmond. She was wearing a lovely denim country dress and the little ladies just loved it! They kept wanting Payslee to dance, and she loves to do that, so they clapped and clapped for her..and they also love her to give them kisses, and she loves doing that too. She was a very good girl. I still haven't taken Sawyer, but I swear I'm going to eventually. He has now decided that he wants to learn tricks too, so now both He and Payslee are jumping through a hoop!They are silly biscuits.
With the leaves, and dry weather though they have been a little itchy, so my vet told me to give them some Children's Benadryl in a little syringe..Well it doesn't taste good, so I try to do it as quickly as I can..Well last night when Saw opened up his mouth I squirted it in, and I guess I shot some down the wrong Pipe!! He started coughing and hacking, and I felt so bad for doing it! Well he kept coughing around, and I finally just called my vet and asked if he was going to be okay..He said, Yes, but just like people, sometimes it will go down the wrong pipe and cause them to choke. He was fine about an hour later, but I felt like a bad dog Mom! Plus Sawyer is so pathetic looking when he is sad..he kept rubbing it in..lol..
Today we are all going to the farm to spend time with the family..I look forward to watching the babies play with their other dog friends. Have a great weekend!!

1) Zac Brown Band
2) Lady A
4) Daughtry & Vince Gill
5) Miranda Lambert
I thought Brad & Carrie did a great job hosting, and over all I thought the show was really good. Some of the performances were a little 'off'..but such is life with a LIVE show. This morning we took a lot of calls from People that said the awards show wasn't "Country" last night, but I personally believe there is a place for everyone in Country music. I mean back when Ronnie Milsap, John Denver, and Conway Twitty were on the top 40 charts crossing over into Country people said that they were not "Country".. and When Willie wore his hair too long, or Waylon acted like an outlaw they weren't "Country"..So I think thats the beauty of "Country" music..It transforms, it migrates, and it changes..and the beauty is that ITS ALL GOOD! Why worry about who's too this, or too that, and just like the good music? Because there is a ton of great music out there to listen to, and the one thing I've always loved about Country music is how loyal the fans are, and how they embrace their memebers and stand behind them..So thats my soapbox for the day! Hope you enjoyed the awards show!

Happy Veterans Day to those Serving, and those who have Served before. I lost one of my favorite soldiers last year, Dick Johnson. He was a fighting Seabee in World War II, and my former Co-host..I miss him everyday. So thank you very much to all our Veterans.
So tonight the CMA awards are on..I won't get to watch the first hour till later, because I'm going to Church with Lauren. We are taking another great class at Crossings about putting the bible's words into your everyday life..And Its a really good class. It starts at 6:30, so I won't be home till around 8:00. I'll DVR the first hour though and watch it back. I know that Taylor Swift is opening the show, and there will also be performances by Jamey Johnson with Kid Rock, Vince Gill with Chris Daughtry, and Brooks & Dunn in one of their last performances together with ZZ Top. Should be a good show. As far as my picks go:
Entertainer of the year--Kenny Chesney
Female Vocalist--Carrie Underwood
New Artist--Darrius Rucker
Male Vocalist--Kenny Chesney
Song of the year--In Color
Album of the Year--Taylor Swift, Fearless
Single of the Year--Chicken Fried--Zac Brown Band
There are a few others, but those are the Majors. I'll be anxious to see how everyone 'sounds'.. You can always tell the great vocalists from the ones who need a little 'audio help'. I haven't heard what Sugarland is going to perform yet, but Jennifer Nettles always knocks it out of the park..When she sang "Stay" a few years ago, I couldn't tear my eyes away!!
Too bad that ONCE AGAIN Gary Allan & Trace Adkins got shut out..What a pile of crap. That always irritates me.. Well have fun watching the show, lets compare tomorrow and discuss!
