Every year we rent a large house at the beach for Karen and I, her parents, her sister, a friend Beth and 3 dogs. It's always expensive because it has to have a pool (so the dogs can swim in it) and an elevator for her parents. I'm allergic to dogs, so during the week I claim one chair and the dogs aren...

Wow, okay, I've been absent for 2 months. Didn't think it was that long. Well, had some struggles, was down a bit, started new meds and am doing great. Just got back from a week at the beach and am trying to catch up. I hope you all are doing fabulous. Love and hugs to all.

Happy 24th Anniversary to Karen, my love, my life, truly my everything.

31 years ago I met her for the first time and was smitten, even though, then, I was engaged to someone else. Fortunately she broke it off.

29 years ago we went on our first date! Although she did not want to admit we were dating, I hung in there. :-)

Ever wondered if you are doing something wrong? Here's a basic litmus test: Is Trump or his administration doing, supporting, tweeting this? Then it's wrong. Stop, go back, start again with a path that does not alienate, harm, and denigrate another person or group. O_o

Phryne's new trick...

I'm feeling rather ... out of it? Dizzy, hard to think, difficult to walk. Driving will be a challenge. :-0

Phew, it's hot today. A nice glass of cold water sounds gre...orrrr Phryne can take a bath. That's fine too. O_o

Ugh, bad night's sleep. First I couldn't sleep until 2:00 am. Took over an hour then to fall asleep. Bad dreams, woke up crying, apparently enough to wake Karen up. Blargh.

Phryne is certainly perky this morning, though. Hopping everywhere.

Cleaning with Phryne is a challenge. If she were a dog, I'd say she was claiming territory. In 20 minutes, she pooped on the shower curtain, floor, sink, countertop, and clean towel. She is also attacking my keyboard now, and has pinched her toes twice now, hollering sharply each time. I hope she learns soon and stops attacking the keyboard, **sigh**
Hope you are...

Today Phryne is still a bit snuffly and out of sorts. She's taking her meds like a champ. We'll see in a couple more days if she has to go back to the doctor's.
She really needed to bathe herself fully, usually she only does her head and shoulders. In cold water. Today I filled a pie pan with ice water and...
