ON THE BACK BURNER

August 2

I can't promise that I won't bring up Cricket again, but it took a special little senior dog to get us over Cricket. Noodle, who doesn't answer to any name because he doesn't hear, except for the refrigerator door opening, has wiggled his close to the ground, short legged , bleary, cloudy eyed persona into our lives. I'm not sure how he did this. Someone, at some time, loved this dog and treated him well. Then something happened and his world changed. Temporarily,until we came on the scene.He loves to be picked up and rocked. He prances when we go for a walk. His tail wags ,once he realizes that you are talking to him. He does "see". He notices shadows and he knows trees, so he must see shapes. He is completely still when I put drops in his eyes, three times a day. Someone must have been doing this for a long time for him to accept the drops every single time I put them in. No squirming, no trying to get away. Just acceptance. Of course, I give him a treat afterwards. That's what a Mom does. And PS. Have you noticed that if you turn the word MOM upside down, the word becomes WOW.

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?
