Farewell to an old friend :(


I am sorry I haven't posted in a few weeks. We recently lost our almost 14 year old basset hound Elwood. He had been sick for some time, and just passed a little over a week ago. He will be missed, he was a super smart and unique personality. His sidekick Jake is feeling very lost without him. Jake is about 12 years old, so he is getting up there too. We don't know Jake's exact age, we adopted him from the Humane Society about 11 years ago and the vet thought he was about 1 year old when we adopted him. The picture I have shared is of Elwood (on the left, he is the black, white, and brown basset) and Jake (on the right, brown and white basset). We picked Elwood up from the breeder when he was only 6 weeks old, so he has been a big part of our lives for many many years.
Good bye Elwood old friend, you will be missed.
I will post a few projects next week, sorry for the delay.

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
