ThunderSnap Leash

You guys know I have a crazy lovable Smooth Fox Terrier named Diesel. Diesel is the love of my life but it is a pain to hook him up to a leash. He jumps runs around in circles acts like a complete nut. 
I understand his excitement but it still gets old.  One of the worse things is during this excitement I have attached his leash to his collar tag. When this happens the minute I get him outside he runs tugging on the collar tag. Since the collar tag is not strong enough to hold the leash ~ off snaps the collar tag and Diesel is free to run! 
The ThunderSnap Leash solves all issues with getting Diesel hooked to his leash. It is so easy!
The ThunderSnap uses powerful magnets and a strong ball bearing latch mechanism to connect the collar and leash.
Tested to over 500 pounds of pull force.  I was worried that Diesel could pull the ThunderSnap off - so when I first tested the ThunderSnap I used the new ThunderSnap and his old retractable leash at the same time. I wanted to be sure the ThunderSnap could hold Diesel. He is a hard puller when he wants to run. The ThunderSnap worked great! No issues!
Once in the house it is a simple pull on the grey slide down to release! 
Connects and Releases in a Snap!

Available in three sizes:
  • Small size: 5/8” Wide Webbing; 6’ Long Leash
  • Medium/Large size: 3/4” Wide Webbing; 5’ Long Leash
  • Extra Large size: 1” Wide Webbing; 5’ Long Leash

Here is my baby Diesel hooked up to his ThunderSnap Leash.

It is refreshing to not have to struggle with Diesel to take him out. Makes life so much better.

It is amazing how the little things cause the most stress. Thank you ThunderSnap for making our daily outings a whole lot less stressful.

A simple act of Kindness

It is never too late to start a new hobby.  I came across a Kindness Movement that I LOVE! It is called Kindness Rocks.   Are you wondering what a Rock and Kindness have in common?  This is HOW....I paint rocks then leave them for other people to find. They can keep the rock, leave it alone, or move the rock to a different location. Once they find my rock the rocks destiny is in their hands. It is my gift to them ~ a way to bring Joy and Warmth to a all too often cold world.

I wanted my rocks to have a meaning expressing something important to me.  One of the things I think that we as a world need so much more of is DIVERSITY. Diversity is key to living in harmony with each other.  

I decided to paint the Tree of Life on all of my rocks.  Big or small - long or short - black or white  all of the rocks will have a Tree of Life.  To me the Tree of Life represents such important values that I feel need to be nourished.
Growth
Connection 
Rebirth
Diversity
Immortality
Strength
Nature
Family

My first three Tree of Life Rocks. Each rock was made for a special location I will be camping at this month.  I will also be leaving rocks on hiking trails and just about anywhere I think a rock would be welcomed or is needed. 


This past weekend while camping I asked my grandson and my BF's granddaughter to find a perfect spot for the Tree of Life Rock at the campground we were camping at.
The only requirement for placement was in or near a tree.   
Priceless Memories 

They are both so intrigued with the act of giving a rock for Kindness that they want to start a regular Rock Painting Get Together to paint beautiful rocks. 
My small way of offering then the joys of giving. 

 If you ever come across a Tree of Life rock with DKL on the back. 
Please enjoy my gift to you!

Yikes Summer is flying by!!

Living in Wisconsin we wait so long for warm weather. When it arrives it seems like it is over before I can get all the things completed I want to do.  Mind you I have no yard work or home maintenance to do. Moving to a apartment complex has simplified my life! I love it.

I'm talking about rivers to kayak, places to camp, adventures to take.  Wisconsin is a beautiful state but temp wise it can get chilly in October - too chilly to be camping for this old gal. This year our nice weather did not start until June - making our warm weather outdoor time very short.

So far this year I have kayaked quite a few nice rivers and lakes. But I always seem to want more! More adventure! Maybe the fact that as I age I see life flying by with the end in site. I know that sounds crazy ~ but it does make a difference how I look at life being 64 vrs 46.  At 46 I felt old but not that old. Now at 64 I am starting to feel old but not think old. Not thinking old but starting to feel old is a terrible thing.  I look at mountains and think sure I can climb that.....then half way up I am panting and out of breath. I think maybe I should slow down - but then the young thoughts come back and say "heck no" just get in better shape. 

Thank goodness my young side is doing most of the talking lately because the old side has been listening. So far this year I have lost 42 pounds, taken up hiking, snow shoeing, camping, kayaking, rock painting and hiding. My life consist of adventures that allow me to  explore life. 

Crazy but I get up every morning smiling, take ownership for everything I do, plan my adventures, contact friends, talk to family, live life to the fullest with my Diesel, and I am extremely THANKFUL that I am able to spend my life MY WAY.  I work at the local hospital part time in the ER Department. I work with a fantastic group of caring professionals that make going to work a pleasure instead of a burden.   I have made some amazing friends and I truly enjoy being with them. I have two friends that feel like they were meant to be my Soul Friends! 

Yes, you could say I am wearing Rose Colored Glasses and I LOVE it! My family is so supportive - my grown children never question why I do the crazy things I do. They smile and say sure Mom. My grandchildren call me the crazy Nana - they are always willing to join me in a new adventure. 

My newest adventure is Geocatching. When Geocatching became popular that was during my work till I die phase. I was climbing up the ladder of success and seem to loss track of everything else. Since I no longer am focused on a career - in fact it has been 7 years since I left that crazy chapter of my life. My 8 year old grandson and I think Geocathcing would be a perfect adventure for us.  I am in the researching process and we plan to start a hunt in September of this year.  We are both very very excited ~ it is kind of like a Treasure Hunt minus Captain Sparrow.

Life is Short ~ Every Breath is Valuable!  Please don't waste 
life on worry and unhappiness. 

Enjoy !
