Dogs and Beer Bottle Caps and Tigers

Steven helps out the Charleston Animal Society quite a bit. I like to go with him when I can, but he has more free time than I do.  

He goes there every Wednesday and takes pictures of the dogs and cats that are up for adoption. (this little fella was there today, thanks for letting me borrow this picture, Dear.)   He then edits them and puts them up on his website and their website. Man, these animals are so cute. He will help them out with special events (photographing) and go any time they have an unusual animal. (rooster, goats, guinea pigs, horses!!)  He is so dedicated to helping animals, and I really love that about him.    (Now, if only I could talk him into bringing another dog home...)

Each year there is a fundraiser called, "Furry Affair." It is a silent auction for donated works of art. He has donated photographs, and other beer bottle cap art.    This year's has over 1500 caps.  He's been hammering for two weeks.   We've been drinking beer for years to collect these caps.  Our dear friends collect these as well and give them to us.  We have beer bottle caps coming out the ying yang.  But it's all worth it.  Looky!!

And, an extra treat today.  My brother's team hasn't had a very good baseball season.  It's been a true "rebuilding" year.  (Lots of frustration and learning)  Well, today, they upset the #1 team in the country, the Texas Longhorns.  They are in their conference tournament, and this puts them in the winner's bracket for the tourney.  It's a good thing.  Good job Tigers!

Seriously the bottle cap thing is so beyond cool.

And congrats on the big baseball win. The Coop and I have been totally digging us some college baseball lately.
