This weekend I entered the last year of my 30s.
I admit to having some issues regarding the whole aging thing. I think it is mostly because I enjoy life so much I'm not to crazy about the passing of time. I'm also not big on maturity, I may be 39 in body but I'm about 19 in my mind. I think I get sillier and less serious with each passing year, which isn't a bad thing.
I was also lucky to have an absolutely fabulous birthday weekend. I had a delicious breakfast at Tops Diner Saturday morning
and then we went to the The New Brusnswick Kennel club dog show to see the Toy Group breeds. I wore my Mischief Made me 1950s style dog tee since it seemed appropriate for the show.
The pugs and poodles where shown in the afternoon so we missed them. Though we did see plenty of pugs in pens outside the breeder's RVs.
The best part was we got to see the Chihuahuas which is a breed I'm very interested in owning one day and the main reason I attend the show. The Chihuahua breeders and fanciers where lovely and let us attend their meeting, they where all members of the Central NJ Chihuahua club. They were so kind and gave us lots of information about the breed.
The accepted show size is 6 lbs and under and the good breeders breed to get dogs in about the 3 to 6 lb range. So tiny, but some unscrupulous people try for much smaller, crazy!
The main breeder we met also rescues large dogs and she recommended a dog 4 lbs or bigger for us when the time comes which I agree with. It was wonderful to see breeders who love their breed so much and are really working to better it. We also met the most adorable 4 month old puppy. I was completely in love.
On Sunday we mostly stayed home with the dogs and cat's and I got my birthday present. 49 vintage Star Trek novels John found on ebay! How awesome is that!
My favorite part was that someone named B.H. had owned some of the books and took notes and recorded ratings. He or she gave several books 10 ++ ratings so I guess they are good.
I also found these two 1970s school pictures in one of the books, perhaps one of them is the elusive B.H.?
I'm so pleased 39 is off to a fabulous start!
