Bear and Roscoe have become semi-regulars, staying with us for another weekend. This time I got Roscoe to eat three whole meals, by feeding him by hand. Naturally I had four other dogs in close proximity, sort of like here when I was trying to eat a sandwich, but hey, whatever works.

I’m not done posting the guest DDs (coming up in order of receipt from: Cathy, Maureen, Donna, Kim, Lauren, Jean, Emily, Luana, Mike) but wanted the vacationing Courtneay and Lance to see their Maggie. She settled right in and is getting along fine with the boys. She tries to get Stanley to play, but he’s not ready just quite yet.
We bought this chair a couple of years ago to be my “reading chair” but I never used it because there was no light in the corner. Phillip installed some track lighting a couple of weeks ago so on occasion I get my butt off the couch and into my chair. Stanley paces back and forth and looks at me with pitiful eyes. He likes to read with his mama, so I really have no choice at all but to let him up. He’ll frequently stand and turn in a circle to change position but as you can see, this is the only viable one. He does provide a nice warm body during this latest polar vortex.

Ugh. Today is Monday, the start of the first 5-day work week I’ve had in what seems like months. A little extra coffee is definitely in order.

My birthday is on the day Kennedy was assassinated. What a claim to fame, huh? I began it by running for 54 minutes. I might get a massage, and we’re going out for dinner with Cathy and Judy. Looking forward to the day!

I’m pretty sure this is how Michelle Obama got started: stamping postcards for her husband’s campaign. Phillip is running for re-election to the Town Council this November. He is very busy knocking on doors and strategizing with the other candidates. Because I was at the kitchen counter, Stanley refused to believe there wasn’t food involved and stayed to watch while I stamped postcards. Sorry, Stan.

It’s nice to know that everyone was comfortable while I was hanging on for dear life. Apparently Stanley was on the other side of the bed. The others seemed to leave him little choice.

Buddy is a finicky eater when it comes to treats. He’ll carefully sniff what you offer and sometimes take it, sometimes not. I think this has something to do with the fact that he is part dachshund. Surprisingly, he doesn’t like carrots, nor does his sister Holly who seems to like just about everything else. Both love sugar snap peas. Go figure.

I’m spending the week at Elliot’s house in Oregon. My sister and brother-in-law live there as well. I’ll be back here the week after next. See you then!

Certain people worry if I don’t have the DD up by 8:30, so to those I say, “Don’t worry!” I woke up this morning with an upset stomach so I went back to bed and woke up all better.
Happy Fourth of July to my U.S. friends! I’ll be back on Friday. Tonight and tomorrow I have to study for my annual Bill of Rights quiz.
