This weekend

I’m sorry I’ve missed the last two CC and This coming Thursday I will be going to Munster for a week. I’m sure glad I stay connected through our Website. Thanks again Steve and Carol!! Tonight Elliott and I are going to dinner with Neil and Dora. I hope to go to a movie tomorrow ( I enjoyed the proposal. Good Chick Flick and funny) and tomorrow night is one of three days in a row baseball games. Monday night Elliott and I are going with another couple. Not that I don’t enjoy Elliott’s company but I’m trying to go more with couples. I can’t wait to go to Munster! Since I’m not traveling I’ll be happy going into Chicago, a couple of times, with my family.  Honey’s training classes are going great. She responds well to sit, stay, lay, shake etc. ( she has walked out into the front yard twice, loose, and respnded to sit and stay indtead of running out in the street!!) The big problem is she still gets anxious,( growling and baring teeth) when it is going to rain or sometimes we aren’t sure why she does it ( if it’s a certain sound or something else is bothering her). We do love her and she is very loving 95 % of the time.

Summer arrived

Looks ... and feels as if summer has arrived!  Dave and I drove (he) 5 hours to Akron on Sunday.  It was nice to be there on Father’s Day- got there in time for dinner.  It was just my sister, brother, Dave and me.  My other brother and his daughter are on a week long bike/camping trip called GOBA - Great Ohio Biking Adventure - about 1,000 riders tour Ohio - 50 miles a day.  I then spent Monday afternoon with my Dad while Dave was in a meeting.  Actually - I worked the crossword while he took a nap for 2 hours - the other 2 hours I felt as if he was about to fall asleep.  Then another 5 hour drive to Midland, MI - arriving at 9 pm.  On Tuesday while Dave was in his meeting I took a 30 mile bike ride on a very nice old rail trail.  The trail was wider than the Monon and in much better shape - although it was mostly in the sun.  Then a 5 hour drive home on Tues.  Marie is here - with the dog. The dog may be an every other week event.  She is working 4 day work weeks so will only spend 3 nights with us which should work out fine.  Now to catch up around here.

vacations all

Not much planned for me but sounds like we all will be having delightful summers. I am most likely to be following Carol Fay and taking only local trips or a few days to near places. Having two dogs does complicate plans. Tomorrow they will be getting operations done. They had a cancellation so I didn’t have to wait. Kara has offered to take on my little guys but a trip to Cincinatti would include her and Al. I wonder if Barb’s son will be interested in taking care of two dogs. She had offered one earlier.

Hello from the Pacific Northwest!

Portland has been alot of fun - flew in right next to Mount Hood, quite a sight from above.  Delaney and I have really enjoyed the Chinese Garden, the Japanese Gardens and the humungous Portland Rose Gardens.  Today we went to a huge old fashioned toy store and then across the street to the Portland Central Library. Very nice, but doesn’t hold a candle to ours.  And like last year in Baltimore where Kate and family happened to be there at the same time and on the same water taxi as we were, this trip my nephew Samuel and his girlfriend from Minnesota are here!  We had dinner with them on Wednesday night -  what a coincidence! Steve has been tied up with the conference the entire time so far, but will be done this afternoon around 3pm.  We are planning to celebrate our wedding anniversary at dinner tonight!  Then tomorrow we are renting a car and driving over to the coast, about 2 hours from here, just for the day.  We fly back on Sunday.

weekend update

Kara and I had a super time on Saturday. We found all sorts of essential goodies while saling on Saturday. Then we went and purchased Bill;s birthday present.. a 40 inch tv. Of course that meant furniture moving. Sunday Kara and I went to look at a Stray dog and ended up with two darling pooches. I took them to get rabies shots and heartworm tests. Then shocked bill with two new dogs.  We went to a wedding and now I am pooped. more later.

6/08 Tonight:  the dogs cry whenever I leave the room. It is like having a new baby. I am not leaving them out of the kitchen due to concerns about toileting. They are both small.. a 4 year old buff color 5# poodle and a white 2 year old 10# poodle mixed with possibly a Jack Russel terrier. Both are boys and both need to be fixed. I have appointments for the first of July. They were both strays with no tags and no collars. A woman advertised them on craigslist and Kara and I went to see them Sunday morning and I couldn’t decided which to take. so…2. Kara went with me to the FACE clinic and got them checked for heartworm (negative) and got rabies shots. I have named them jack and JoJo.

cc tonight

Once again I work until 9:00 so I’m not sure if I’ll be at Barb’s house or not. I’ll try. It’s been very busy gearing up for summer reading and getting lots of patrons signing up. I’ve been pretty tired after work. The first dog training class went well. There were about ten families (some had two dogs that they will bring next week) so we will have two classes. The next five weeks is with the dogs.
