Cookie and Jack are home [Mar. 7th, 2004|08:23 pm]
Jack and Cookie came home Friday night. She is a beautiful animal, not one that I would have ever chosen (I am a Terrier person), but beautiful nevertheless. And if she works for Jack and is successful in keeping him safe, we can't ask for more. She has met the grandchildren and done well with them. I am anxious to know how she works with Jack when they head downtown tomorrow. I watched her stop him several times at curbs on Saturday so she seems to know what she is doing.

Charley and Cookie are getting along really well. When we brought Cookie home, we took her to a park and then I went home and got Charley and took him to the park so they could meet on netural territory. We let them sniff each other out and then we took them both down the lane to the house. They are running and chasing each other and I imagine Charley will drop a pound or two if that keeps up.

New Member of the Family [Feb. 9th, 2004|08:43 pm]
Those of you who know our family are aware that my husband, Jack is blind. Jack has always had travel vision but in the last few months his vision has deteriorated quite a bit. In fact, to the point that someone stopped him one day and told him he was walking down the middle of a busy street. He was using his white cane and had simply become disoriented. When he told me that, I suggested that it was time for him to get a guide dog. Early this morning he left by train for Bradenton, Florida where he will receive his guide dog tomorrow. We don't know yet what kind of dog he will receive, but the chances are it will be a Lab, although I am rooting for a smooth coat collie. I'll know tomorrow night what kind of dog he gets and what the dogs name is. Someone there will make a digital picture and e-mail it to me so I can see the new family member before Jack brings him home. Jack and the dog will spend several weeks in Florida getting to know each other and learning how to work together before he comes home. It will be an interesting new adventure.

High Adventure... [Jan. 13th, 2004|08:05 pm]
I always dread the drive, but getting there is always fun. This weekend we are heading to Atlanta for a visit. I never know what kind of trouble/fun we will get into, but I know we will find plenty to keep us entertained. It used to be we rode horses like wild people, but the horses are gone now and so is the horseman we all loved so we won't be doing that. Sometimes we used to go to Stone Mountain. I climbed up it once or twice when I was younger and foolish. (Chip went up it once on his Dad's back when he was still an infant.) I won't be doing that this trip either. Sometimes we have taken road trips using Atlanta as a starting point and going other directions from there. I would like to take the grandkids to the zoo. Will have to wait and see what the weather is like. We may be seven people, driving 4 hours to have a house party with our friend Marsha and her daughter Laura. And if all we do is sit around remembering our youth and remembering all the fun we have had that will be ok too!

Sushi [Jan. 12th, 2004|07:08 pm]
I've been thinking a lot about Sushi lately. Of my three children, two were good eaters. The third are almost nothing. He was the picky eater. And now all of a sudden he has discovered Sushi. I don't get it. What's up with that?

It's hard to understand... [Jan. 9th, 2004|06:10 pm]
When my daughter was five years old her father died. At the time of his death I had two lovely pieces of jewelry. My engagement ring and a beautiful opal ring. When my daughter was 16, I gave her the opal. When my oldest son was ready to become engaged, I gave him my engagement ring to give to his intended. For more than twenty years my daughter had the ring and had, in fact, put it aside in a small ring box inside her jewelry box for her oldest daughter. A couple months ago my daughter and her husband had some interior painting done in their home. They were unable to be at home while the work was being done. When they returned home in the evening she discovered that her lingerie drawer had been gone through by the painters. There were several spots of paint on the drawer. She made a cursory inspection of her jewelry box that she kept in that drawer. It appeared that nothing was missing. Wednesday evening, she opened the jewelry box to find an earring back for her daughter. The daughter asked to see her opals. When she opened the box they were gone. We can only conclude that the painters took them. Now two months later there is little hope of ever seeing them again. I am so sad for my daughter who had a prized possession from her father stolen and I am so sorry my grand daughter will never get to own the ring. It's hard to understand those in our society who lack a moral compass.
