Lunch with Charlotte.

The weather over the past few days has really sucked.  All we have had is rain, rain and more rain.   It has made it very difficult to keep Fred’s healing paw dry when he goes outside.  He is tired of us putting a zip lock bag on his paw.  Poor doggie.  Yesterday John took Fred back for another checkup.  Because the wound is holding moisture with the bandage she took it off and sent Fred home with one of those awful cone shaped collars.  Fred was not a happy camper.

Today Fred is pretty well today.


Fred chilling out on the couch.   He was a good boy and wasn’t chewing on his paw so he got a break from the collar.

Annie and I met our friend Charlotte for lunch today.  We have known Charlotte since middle school and try to get together whenever we can.  We had a great time catching up and reminiscing about old times.

Bob and Marcy have both had the flu and are now recovering from secondary infections.  The doctor told them that a lot of the people who are getting the flu are also experiencing the same type of  infections afterwards.  Also, people who have taken the flu shot are getting the flu.  Strange stuff.   We hope everyone who is sick gets to feeling better real soon.

Last week we received news that one of my cousins in Texas had a massive stroke and was diagnosed as having Locked-in-Syndrome.  Sadly, he passed away Thursday  night.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.


  1. So sorry about your cousin...A stroke is awful...Your granddaughter is a real sweety! Oh, and so is Fred!

  2. Know what you mean about the flu..came down with it Thursday and still sick, but funny, I think I caught it in the drs office last Monday when I went for a regular checkup and found I had an ear infection and he put me on antibiotics...hope I don't get a secondary infection and had my flu shot in Oct last year...feel sorry for anyone who gets it!!! Nice to see you post again!!! Loretta and Bill
