Some sort of mishap occurred when they were paving our street...the phones stopped working and dsl went down..so I've been disconnected since the last post. If I owe you email or a phone call, I'll be right with you! I had no idea how dependent I was on those phone lines...sheesh. Of course the UP side of not having the computer or a phone or a battery charger for the cell phone is that the puppy princess and I have had a marvellous time to bond and establish a routine. She has been helping me work on the Broadripple sock and teaching me to walk on a leash. We had our well puppy check up...she weighs a whopping 3.5 pounds and is perfectly healthy and adorable in every way. I think if when I went to MY doctor I was allowed to nibble M&M's before she listened to my heart or looked in my ears, I'd be a whole lot more interested in going for my regular checkups! Praising the weight gained since the last visit only seems to happen at the vet's office. sigh.
This has been a tough weekend for me. I always miss my Daddy the most during the Indy 500, and of course everywhere I walk I am startled to realize that Tasha is no longer with me. It reminds me of my first week at sleepaway Girl Scout camp....sitting around the campfire eating toasted marshmallows and singing the round "Make new friends, but keep the old, One is Silver and the Other GOLD."
My deepest thanks from the bottom of my heart for the lovely wishes, cards and Flowers (see above) in memory of my dear sweet doggie.
Hope your Memorial Day is safe and blessed.
