Even if the owner thought family would, they could not control the dog as they did not have the patience to help the dog through the grief they too suffer.

Hi Bud.

My son and his family would take Lily, as they love her almost as much as I do, but I can see some families not wanting others' pets.

I consider myself an articulate person, with a better than average command of vocabulary, but I had to look this word up...

Jeremiad

A jeremiad is a long literary work, usually in prose, but sometimes in verse, in which the author bitterly laments the state of society and its morals in a serious tone of sustained invective, and always contains a prophecy of society's imminent downfall.

I thought so, both our kids love our dogs but are highly allergic. Nephew and his wife will take ours.

We have sun, and wind. Halllujah!

And, I have clean, steamed carpet. It makes me happy.

This morning I saw a goldfinch hopping around in the dense yew directly in front of the front door, which made me smile as that was a first....maybe there is going to be a nest in there.

Spring has sprung.

We've had a very busy day, but nothing too exciting going on.

Little house is put back together, but that is literally all I have accomplished at home today.

I am loving my new car, and Lily is riding with me to do whatever so often that she looks pitiful when I go and leave her at home.

Busy with my own things, and did some emergency child care along with a bit of case management for the family of the elderly man I have mentioned.

Their lives have been absolutely turned upside down, but they are meeting with an attorney today who specializes in elder care issues....where they will receive expert advice from a source not invested in any way, unlike the nursing home.

Life.

Hi Gail,

There has been no more rain, tho could be a bit tonight and tomorrow morning.

Here in town, we are fine, tho some basements may still be struggling.

Driving around out of town today, I saw a lot of fields plowed and none flooded, but I know near the big rivers they will have flooded fields.

So....the worst was not here, but I have still not had to water my new plantings in many days.


Maggie

Hi Maggie!
crunch time is over & that is nice. Now trying to pack the house & get it sold! Who knew we had so junk? Having the floors refinished so we will stay in the AS for a week with 4 cats & 2 dogs in the driveway. Not exactly paradise but should be interesting.

Yikes, that does sound challenging, but hope you have good weather.

I cannot imagine packing to move at this point in my life, and do not envy you that one bit...but what a labor of love for you, given the home you have found.

Enjoy.


Maggie
