Another E-mail From Pauline From Paulinesfashions.

They say that prayer changes things, but does it REALLY change anything?Oh yes! It really does!

Does prayer change your present situation or sudden circumstances?No, not always, but it does change the way you look at those events.

Does prayer change your financial future?No, not always, but it does change who you look to for meeting your daily needs.

Does prayer change shattered hearts or broken bodies?No, not always, but it will change your source of strength and comfort.

Does prayer change your wants and desires?No, not always, but it will change your wants into what God desires!

Does prayer change how you view the world?No, not always, but it will change whose eyes you see the world through.

Does prayer change your regrets from the past?No, not always, but it will change your hopes for the future!

Does prayer change the people around you?No, not always, but it will change you - the problem isn't always in others.

Does prayer change your life in ways you can't explain?Oh, yes, always! And it will change you from the inside out!So does prayer REALLY change ANYTHING?Yes! It REALLY does change EVERYTHING!

More Dog Quotes

This is a couple more famous dog quotes provided to us by Alice from makingstuffwithlove. The items in the pictures have links to the etsy store listings if you are interested in purchasing these items.


You can say any fool thing to a dog, and the dog will give you this look that says, “My God, you’re RIGHT! I NEVER would have thought of that!”
--Dave Barry


Every human child must learn the universe fresh. Every stock dog pup carries the universe within him. Humans have personalized their wisdom -- stored it in museums, libraries, the expertise of the learned. Dog wisdom is inside the blood and bones.
--Donald McCaig

May 25th is

National Tap Dance Day!

This day was created in honor of the birthday of legendary tap dancer Bill "Bojangles" Robinson on May 25, 1878. This special day is the result of  the US Joint Resolution declaring May 25th National Tap Dance Day. President George Bush signed it into law as a national day on November 7, 1989.

Perhaps the PJ Team should take up a new summer endeavor - Tap Dancing! 
We could call ourselves the PJ Tappers and travel through all the outdoor show events across our states. I'm sure our performances would attract a huge gathering, and after we did our little jig they would all buy our handmade goodies. Oh what fun! 

So.....Get on your shoes!

And don that dancing attire!


and join Shirley in watching the best tapper of all time! 

Happy Tap Dancing Day! May you be 'in step' in all you do today! 

Patty from Catcalls

Sasha enjoys her kibble so much that it is just the highlight of her little doggy life to lick the bag from the inside out. heehee.

Just a reminder always supervise pets when playing with bags. Make sure they have plenty of air and can get out of the bag if they so desire.

More E-mail Finds From Pauline

This came to Pauline from paulinesfashions in an e-mail. She wanted to share it with you all.

Ever have one of those days,

When something seems a bit "off"

But you just can't put your finger on it...

Or it seems like all the people around you are grouchy and just want to butt heads...

Sometimes, you just need to take a fresh new look and get a different perspective on things.

Remember, to try your best
To show kindness to others...cuz
It just feels so good!

(Sometimes looking at things
From their perspective
Might help.....)

So, when life gets you down...

Remember to just keep going,
And keep your head above water..

And you'll get by
With a little help from your friends!

To all of my Family and Friends ... Have a nice day. Remember- God can't love you more than he already does! Go ahead and make someone smile. God Bless Ya!

--Maurice Maeterlinck

Animals are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time.
-- Henry Beston


A dog is not “almost human” and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
--John Holmes

No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as a dog does.
--Christopher Morley
