And welcoming others. Hug their necks and tell them they need the first 5 rules: 1. Bless his (or her) heart. This simple phrase excuses all comments made about friends, family and acquaintances. It ABSOLVES you. 2. “The devil’s beating his wife.” This is how a southerner responds, gazing heavenward, if it’s raining and the […]

It’s me again.  Mom took me to puppy socialization class again last night.  Wheezer was not there, he graduated even though he humped too much.  So did Caramel and Laia.  I was the biggest puppy in the class by 15 pounds.  The blue ladies said I was good because I made myself small when I […]

I find it hard to believe that John and I both slept through the destruction taking place outside our open bedroom window last night, but we did.  Not-So-Gentle Ben, the pear-thief bear, returned.  I really don’t know if it was the same bear…  I read yesterday that there are 6,000 black bears in the mountains […]

On Thursday morning, I noticed Snapdragon and Clara Barton in the front yard.  Their ring leader Sweet Pea was nowhere to be found.  Then I heard a ruckus in the side yard and panicked – it was Sweet Pea in distress!  My first thought was “Damn it, I am going to be late for work.” […]
