I'm a big fan of NASA, rockets, and all things outer space. So imagine how awesome it felt when the news broke earlier that Midland International Airport has just been approved as the first Commercial Space Port in the country. Yes, the Federal Aviation Administration has officially certified Midland as a Spaceport. In fact the new name will be "Midland International Air and Spaceport". West Texas has a Spaceport... and that will go down as one of the best sentences I've ever written. Obviously this is brand new, and things are still being planned out. You can read the full details here. But in the not too distant future we will be able to watch rockets blast off into space from our own backyards... and not too soon after that I'll get to say what will be my new favorite sentence "I think I'll go to outer space today"

We have puppies. We are exhausted. People always say that you don't really know what it is to be a parent until you have TWO children. Bill Cosby says that's because with only one child you always know who did it! It is the same with puppies.
Our two, Augie and BB, are inseparable, and energetic. It is always amazing to me how different their personalities are. Augie is the scruffy terrier. He is timid with new people, is very still and sweet when you hold him, sleeps in bed with us, and is very protective if he perceives a threat. He can also be shamed into better behavior.
BB is in every way the opposite. BB is the little Pomeranian mix. She is so adorable she gets forgiveness because her cuteness is impossible to ignore. She is not particularly cuddly, doesn't know a stranger, and cannot be shamed into better behavior because she truly believes everything she does is golden! She is bold, independent, and very, very naughty. At the Lonestar Sanctuary they called her "Xena Princess Puppy" for a reason!
Everyone says the best way to potty train them is by using crate training. But it is really hard to put a shelter puppy into a crate. Our two were found wandering in the streets and they have serious separation anxiety when we leave them alone. So we will just keep taking them outside every 15 minutes until they learn, or we do.
Sometimes we question our wisdom for adopting two puppies, but we never question our decision to adopt THESE two puppies!

Hey! It rained this weekend! It wasn't crazy violent windy rain either! Just a nice couple of gentle rainy days. So I went to the National Weather Service website and pulled the rain totals... because science. Totals varied place to place (and street to street) but at the main weather center at Midland International it rained .14 inches over 3 days. and .78 inches so far this month. And while September is looking to be the wettest month of the year 2014 is still well behind the average. Only 5.52 inches so far compared to 14.60 as our yearly average, and we are still about 3 inches behind rain totals for last year. So drought conditions still exist but on the bright side it looks to be a cool, cloudy week... with at least a 20 to 40 percent chance of rain every day. I copy and pasted the actual "Climate Report" below, and for some reason it compares everything to the same time of year in 1995.
