Tornado sirens sent residents of Findlay and Hancock County running for cover Thursday afternoon, as severe thunderstorms pounded northwest Ohio for the third time in less than 24 hours.
I was at work frightened. The sky got terribly dark and it looked as evil as I ever saw it before. I was hearing sirens go off all over and the storm just getting closer.
Then all the sudden the rain started pounding on the roof, 4:00 in the afternoon at work. All the sudden my name gets paged over the intercome, I pick it up and its my friend Laura from Findlay. She warns me about the storm that is heading our way, 80 mile mph winds, 1/4 inch size hail and tornado warnings sorrounded us. Then all the sudden I hear the dial tone. As of now I still haven't got ahold of her, but I am in hopes that her electric just is out.
In the town of Upper Sandusky, 13 miles south of were I live, which is were my Grandma lives and many of my family members. It looks as a war zone in that town. Trees fallen straight through houses, shingles and siding ripped off house, cimis turned over left and right, and lightening struck the hospital and put a hold straight through the roof. People were evacuated from the hospital as it was just running on generator. I am thankful that nothing has happened to us and no deaths have occured to my knowledge.

Griffin presented the fathers day present to Jason early Sunday morning and Jason broke out in tears when he saw it. He couldn't believe we did all that just for him. Then I got him a card with dogs on it and wrote a note in there from the pups. I also bought him a hat that Trinity had tore up about a month ago, he had this Dale Jr. hat he wore ALL the time and it was his favorite, well one day Trinity thought it was a toy and chewed it up.
So low and behold I found another hat just like it on Saturday and wrapped it up. Then I wrote a sorry note from Trinity to Jason and gave him the hat. I think his fathers day turned out pretty good.

Last night the pups and I worked a few hours on a present for Daddy. The pups wanted to make something special for Jason for fathers day on Sunday. So they decided they wanted to make him a special blanket to cuddle up with, but add a bit of some puppy love. This is what they have come up with so far.
Trinity had so much fun running around with paint on her feet making footprints, Kane wasn't sure what was going on he just wanted to eat the paint, and Griffin didn't want nothing to do with paint on his paws, he was a happy camper when I washed his feet.
But they all decided that is was all worth it for Daddy.

Last night I came home from work and feed the pups their supper, and as I was looking out the back window I seen Nicki (my Quarter Horse) just staring at me. Just fealt like for a second we connected. After the pups were through with supper I went to the barn and got Nicki's halter and lead. Usually Nicki gives me a bit of a hard time when I try and catch her, but not today. She came right up to me and slipped her head right in the halter. So I got Nicki out and we took a short ride down the field. By the time we got to the other end of the field and turned around, I looked off in the distance and could just see the sun beginning to set. We stopped and just enjoyed the peace and quiet and the beautiful scenery. I layed my head on Nicki's main and gave her a big hug around the neck. Granted I have had Nicki for almost 6 years now, but just at that very moment it just seemed like we connected like never before. I realized that I need to be taking more time out to spend with her, even if its just for a 10 min ride. Last night was just a wonderful evening! Nicki I love you!!!!
