ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 19

I did my long walk today. 5 miles. I feel as if I ran a Marathon.I was fine untilI I sat down. I wish that I had had time for a nap . This is my last long walk, then I start tapering. I had the contractors coming for their last day on the job, but  I knew that if I didn’t do the walk, I would put it off, and put it off. So I did it. The trouble with walking here in Bird Bay is that I meet a lot of people who I know through my walking a dog. That means I stop and talk and explain about Teddy and his issues. The more I talk about him, the more I realize that I made the right decision to take him back.I filled out an application and listed 5 possible candidates for my next pet. The application has been in my mailbox for 3 days. First it was Sunday, then it was President’s day and today,the third day.. a construction truck was parked too close to the mailbox and the mailman didn’t leave our mail. Probably the guys I was interested in will have been adopted and I will have to do the search all over again. I am looking to adopt a dog who is being fostered, at a foster home,  rather than a kennel type rescue. The dogs are integrated into a family home and adopted out that way.  They are not in cages with a dozen other dogs who are waiting for adoption. I think I will have a better chance of getting a history on my next pet. My contractor found a blue tennis ball here in the house. I have no idea where it came from, so my new pup already has his first toy.

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?
