I thought I had posted these here on the community, but I guess I didn't. :/ We just threw some pics together for lack of time. Hope you enjoy! For those that have caught this already, sorry for the redundancy.

The best things in life are puppies !!! Cody and Bailey, our Miniature Australian Shepherds had a litter of 7 on March 20th. They are all healthy and growing like crazy. 4 male, 3 female. This is a mix of some pics. Puppies sleep around 90% of the time, and they eat the rest. You can see this is true by the pictures. Bailey loves it when people say, "Awww!" #Miniature_Australian_Shepherds   #dogs

Story
Tagline
A proud resident of Central Ohio. Happily married to Coleen Bemiller Croston.
Introduction
Raised by blue collar parents in Niles, Ohio. Attended Parochial schools grades K-12. Geography Major at Kent State University. Licensed with the State of Ohio Department of Insurance since 1984. Married 15 years.

The thrust of my life's message is to encourage everyone to prepare themselves for the future, primarily by caring for and paying attention to their health, wellness, and prosperity. These subjects can be a little dry and cautionary. To temper that I post from many different perspectives. Humor, music, news, events. I'm not boring, that's for sure. Variety is the spice of life...(that's what the judge is gonna' tell my wife - The Doors sans Jim Morrison)

*NOTE ~ If you are new to Google+, or if you plan to follow just a few people, be aware that I post and share posts regularly. If you don't have many people sharing with you I will show up in your stream quite a bit. If you choose to follow people that post a lot you may try putting them in a separate circle so it doesn't feel like you are being cornered. I welcome the follows and shares, but remember ~ Follow Responsibly ;) 
Bragging rights
Survivor of Congestive Heart Failure, Chronic Kidney Failure, Diabetes, Total Hip Replacement, along with a few other setbacks and syndromes. Living proof that there is no room for hopelessness in this world.

The first thing I noticed was that the man who would be our waiter for the evening was very soft-spoken and interested in our enjoyment. The place was clean and the atmosphere relaxed and tasteful. We had Schezwan dumplings and lettuce wraps as appetizers. Both tasted fresh and the sauces were full of flavor. We had shrimp for dinner. Mine, the Sesame (extra spicy), and the wife had the Lover's Shrimp, having 2 different styles of prawn. Everything was excellent. The only thing overlooked was that we weren't offered fried rice, which Mama would have preferred, but no big deal. I wish I had a camera, as her plate was truly beautiful... We remembered going to HG when we worked on this side of town. There were quite a few fine places to eat in the area back then. Gladly, we came back across one of the finest Chinese restaurants on the East side, still in the same place. We will be back.
