Hurry Hurry- Read all about it!!!!

Now, as all of Blogville knows, WHN has been busy (driving us crazy) getting ready to launch her new business adventure, Dachsies With Moxie Custom Embroidery Shoppe.  Last year Dad took care of the business license, and this year he set up a website!  Yes, we have a website from which to sell WHN's creations!  

Go to to see what we are offering- placemats, quilts, stockings, scarves, and MORE!!!!!!  (BTW- we will not be offering anything for ale that another BLogville entrepreneur is offering- so Aunt Cindy and Mollie and ALfie's Mom's, please don't worry!)

And thank you Mayor Emeritus Frankie, for cutting the yellow ribbon for the grand opening of this BLogville venture- we don't know what to do without you!  Snoopy, get back here with Muffin!  You may not take her behind those trees!

In Memoriam Robert Gain BLack, Sr (18 December 1928 - 17 September 2009)

Robert Gain Black, Sr (28 December 1928 - 17 September 2009)

Mom and Dad, May 1988

Norwegian Cruise 1999
 Five years ago today, my beloved father, Robert Gain Black, Sr, died after a long battle with kidney failure.  He is survived by his wife, Agnes McKenna Black, his eight children and multiple grandchildren.  He was the only child of Olga Andersen Black and Albert Gain Black.  he graduated from Harvard in 1949 and from the University of Virginia Law School in 1956, after serving in the US Army during the Korean War.  He was employed by Grumman for almost 40 years, and was the Director of Federal Legislation.  He retired in 1995 and he and Mom moved to South Carolina soon afterwards.  He is dearly missed and I talk to him every day.  He gave me my love of reading and of history.  He was a great husband and father, and he will never be forgotten.  He insisted that I take Latin and I have always called him Pater since then, amongst other nicknames!)  Besides my husband, of whom he thoroughly approved and who he loved dearly and was dearly loved and respected in return, he is the greatest man that I have ever known.

Rainbow Bridge Alert- Greta from Idaho Pug Ranch

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we, the Dachsies With Moxie, let BLogville know of the passing of the irrepressable Greta from the Idaho Pug Ranch.  This beautiful pug was one of bestest friends and we miss her terribly.  Run free at the Bridge Angel.
