Sprucing for Spring with Monkey Bars

As you well know, it has been a long winter here.  I am actually beginning to hope for spring though as we see a slow rise in temperature.  So of course I am starting to think bird feeders, gardening, time out in the yard and volleyball.  Well, you should see how our gardening equipment is stored.  All the shovels, rakes and other items are shoved in a corner in the shed.  Guess what though?  I just received the Monkey Bars Garden Tool Rack from  Monkey Bars Garden Tool Rack from Monkey Bars of Illinois, in Peoria .  I am so excited about this product! The Monkey Bars Garden Tool Rack will now enable me to keep all my gardening needs in one, neat orderly display.  All my garden tools fit on one 51" bar!  Is that great or what!  No more searching the shed for that missing rake.  Now, if I can just get the children to put them back where they belong.  LOL! The Monkey Bars Garden Tool Rack has two brackets that you attach to your wall, and then slide the

Unbreakoball, A Tough Ball for Your Dog

Hey neighbors! OK, Shelties really aren't known for being hard on their toys, but I wanted to try one of these balls from Unbreakoball anyway.  I do have one chewer, but she wouldn't touch it. She doesn't chew toys, she chews books and furniture.  So, I took some pictures of Grace's pups playing with it.  They really had fun chasing it around the kitchen.  Wait until you see the pictures. Now, the actual purpose of Unbreakoball is for those dogs who really chew or destroy normal balls and toys.  These balls would be great for Bull dogs, Pit Bulls, Dobermans, Shepherd, etc.  Or you might have another breed of dog who would just enjoy the dog ball anyway. We have the 6 inch Unbreakoball, but it also comes in a 10 inch size.  Ours is orange and has small holes in it to help your pet grip the ball. From Unbreakoball: The Unbreakoball dog ball is crafted in the United States from a nontoxic, high-density polyethylene plastic. Designed for the roughest, t
