I am tired of this slow steady weight gain. My activities are limited by arthritis and degeneration of my spine and neck. I am finally back to walking and doing some very slow stretching .I do not want to sideline myself again . Things to think about :) Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow. Mary Anne Radmacher There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt. "You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result." � Mahatma

    Thanks for the congrats Arlene! I am so proud of the girlie! We will start the Utility journey in a four day show in T or C in October. Over Labor Day we used the last day to play at Utility and, though we didn't qualify (not one dog qualified in Utility A that weekend), I was very happy with her. She only made one mistake--the other two were mine.

    How goes the training with Rival? He must be almost a year old now? I'm taking a year-long online training class with Susan Garrett. I've taken it before and really like it. The dogs like it too. And it adds to the preciseness of the Obedience training, but in a really fun way. And Tipsy's half brother is siring a litter towards the end of the year and I am "thinking" about a puppy. The training course would be perfect for a new puppy.

    This summer has been absolutely crazy--one of the busiest ever. And then I added in cleaning the Cottage for my son when his cleaning lady quit (he DOES pay me well!), physical therapy for the knee, and cataract surgery on both eyes. Not sure what I was thinking!? And the tourists keep coming--it should be slowing down, but really isn't. (Not really a bad thing--but I am ready for a slow down.)

    I hope your garden was productive this year and the summer was good.

    If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me.
