ON THE BACK BURNER

July 1

I was doing my walk about yesterday and I saw a dog walker friend. She didn't know me without Cricket . That's not very flattering. Now I know the truth. It's Cricket everyone is happy to see. I'm chopped liver. For years, with four kids, I knew that I was considered chopped liver on many occasions. But I really thought that I had an identity here. I feel a little bad about this, but not so much. I only know the dog's names, not the people attached to the leashes. I guess we are even . It is much easier for me to remember a dog's name than the owners. There is always a Ben and a Charlie and Sandy. These seem to be popular dog names. No one has a Spot ( we did) or a Rover. We (Cricket and me) met an Ace the other day. I met a new dog in the neighborhood a few days ago , and for a change, I remember the owners name, but not her dog. Maybe this means that I can look at a person, and know who they are by name, not by what kind of a dog they walk. Sorta validates the human along with the pet.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
