SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!We have a new baby at our house!
I can tell You it isn't the Baby of choice....I mean,
maybe I'd be interested in a little fur-sis? My size,
doxie,doxie mix or some other small breed....
Thank God, it isn't a Grand-baby! Gma said,
" we've done diapers,bottles,spit-up,pee and
poop,etc.... The others are better than 1/2 grown.
11 and almost 9. Their Mommy would have a stroke
to do all that again!" Gma, just isn't fast enough to
do the baby mess again!On with my story.....
Gma left me guarding and went off to run errands. Have
the weekly massage,so the old gal can keep, keeping-on!
Seems to settle her for a few hours. Gpa went off to
the elevator to buy milk replacer for the bottle twins.
Who BTW are doing nicely...Salt and minerals for the
Gpa beat Gma home and found a Heifer trying to calf!
Not the one he had been keeping an eye on either!
Our bulls broke through a pasture fence and visited
the ladies.....way too early! Can't blame these
early arrivals on the neighbors,either!
Gpa gave her some time but things were going to slow.
He dug out the calf pulling stuff and pulled the calf.
What a way to arrive in this new world...Then it was COLD
too! Already -2...The little boy was very lively.
Even tried to suck Gpa's fingers! Hey there, hand washing
is my JOB!
Gpa put him on some straw in the wheelbarrow. Took him
to the milkhouse. Had Gma fetch him a bulb for the heat
lamp. The Cats pretty much cleared out of there...hehe
The light warmed him up and dried him off.After supper
Gpa took instant colostrum to him. He nursed the moo-moo
bottle like a pro....He's a survivor,as he has strong
instincts! Gpa left him there all night.
After awhile, some barn kitties went inside. They were
so curious....they found the light,it was warm,so they
stayed. The baby moo was curled up on hay with a full
tummy sleeping away....
His Mom is up eating and drinking...Gpa said,"she looks
rough!" So we haven't tried to give her calf back to her.
Gpa will try in couple days. If she doesn't want him,
then Gpa will be raising him on a bottle. I sure hope
the Bulls didn't set Gpa up for several January and
February babies. Bulls can be busy boys in just a few
We usually calf from late March-May. The other half of
the herd is from late August-October. Gma is sure glad
she isn't strong enough to take care of bottle calves
anymore. OMD! She's have to be out there every morning
and evening with bottles. Gpa hated that job when he
was young....had no patience for it. Gma took care of
all the orphans:lambs,calves,piglets and sometimes a
Things do change....Gpa used to pick a calf up and
just carry them off...later on, drag them to where
he wanted them. These days,he grunts to put them in
the wheelbarrow and push them to their new digs!!!!
I think the big changes around here is called "old
age!" I'm here to keep them from getting dogtimers!
They might go out to lunch, forget to come back home?
I have to keep them entertained and mentally
challenged! It's a tough job, but someone has to do it!
Tomorrow the Grand-kids are coming to play games. They
help keep Gma and Gpa on their toes too! We give them,
absolutely NO Breaks in our games! They beat the pants
off of both of them,about 9 times out of 10. We're having
pancake,bacon and scrambled egg brunch. We made 25 popcorn
balls. The kids can take a bunch home with them.
The last batch was 18 and Gpa,Gma and myself ate them all!
I did snatch 2 mini marshmallows that flew out of the
bag...as she was adding them to the pot of melted butter.
2 mini marshmallows and a couple bites of shredded cheddar
cheese were my snacks... No wonder, I charged
after those marshmallows like I'd never had a treat!
Gma is starving ME! No one in this house is on a diet...
Unless it is a diet filled with goodies???????
Gotta tell ya, Gma has to have Gpa's help with the big
pots filled with hot stuff! Cause, she can't pour,hold
and stir all at the same time....like she once could!
Gpa uses a wheelbarrow and Gma uses Gpa...They manage
to get their jobs done.....

Come in, said the spider to the fly! Geesh!
Just kidding!!!!! Come into my cozy, toasty kitchen.
Pull up a chair and park your paws....I've been
busy on this cold January day. Trying to forget
it is Ever so Cold Outside.
I made Lazy gal's sweet rolls and bread. Sit
and I'll bring you some nice warm cinnamon
twisted roll with vanilla glaze. Coffee,tea
a bowl of water?????
Staying Toasty With Bread Making
If rolls and butter bread aren't your thing. I have
several kinds of cookies. Even apples,oranges and
clementines. Rest your paws and tell me what is new
at your place. Every gal deserves a break. The laundry
is done. I've roasted in the hot towels and bedding.
It's time to sit back and rest,until time to sling
hash for supper...OMD! We're not having hash,don't
slobber. I'm having pork chops,fried spuds with the
orange orbs from the garden called sweet carrots.
Fresh butter bread....
After supper, to burn up all the goodies....I guess,
I'll have to exercise with Gma. She needs my help or
she cheats and quits way to soon! Gotta watch these old
duffers all the time! I'll finish the day with Zoomies
around all the living room furniture. Up and down the
hall,into the bedrooms....Play a little chase,some
tag and some hide and seek. Close my day by settling
into my big bed in the bedroom,not the kitchen!
I'll zzzzzzzzzz's, snug as a bug in the middle....
Hopefully, it will be warmer tomorrow????
It did make 12....Light flurries and no sunshine.
Windchill? Did want to know! Gma and I are
staying inside. She doesn't want to pull a
sweater over my stitches. They are still there.
I didn't take any medicine today. I don't seem
to be itchy... Thank my dogness for that!

Here's the torturous girdle mesh after surgery.

I did it in the middle of the night and inside the
covers too! I was just so miserable I couldn't
sleep! While Gma was out COLD!
Surgical girdle mesh
Here is the Queen Size Inflated bed 4 Gma and I.
We slept there 10 days.
Grandpa only tested the bed.
He did volunteer to sleep there.
I wanted my Grandma.

Can you see I'm on DRUGS????????
My Bed,Me with the Torture Wrap.....

3 holes in the plushy part. It's a rainbow colored reindeer...
It's in the stuffie hospital....I had alot of pent up frustration
to work out!
1st. Freedom and 8 Squeaker Toy......
Kitchen play as I started to feel better. Alot of these were
Christmas toys. My Secret Santa Buddy sent me a small pink BoBo.
Penlope Pink BoBo saved my sanity!!!! Thank you Buddy!

Well, we have an issue at our house. Gma does!
Gpa and Furs do not! We all sleep just fine!
We all love our 18 year old,double pillow-top bed.
It is in pristine condition and has been flipped
regularly through the years.
Precious and myself, think it is the to die for
bed....We both sleep on it! I sleep there at night
and Precious sleeps there during the day. We think,
it is Pawsome! Gpa has NO Issues with the bed,either!
While I was Imprisoned in the kitchen...Gma slept
with me, on an inflatable queen mattress. She slept
better than she has in sssssssssssssssoooooooo long
she can't even tell you when??????? BTW-Tonight,I
am going back to my regular bed. Yippy!
Gma has had sleep issues for 40 years. Due to the
fibromyalgia and arthritis. The restorative sleep
is very poor for Gma. This repairs the hooman body
from it's daily wear and tear.
She doesn't take sleep meds. or anything but aspirin
and arthritic time released tylenol. She tried lots of
meds. when younger. They Never found a good combo...
She became very sensitive to all medicine while they
play Russian Roulette with her.
Gma was telling her massage therapist about the kitchen
sleeping....She said, she is having a same trouble in
her pillow-top. They chatted and both know that they have
very firm mattresses. These used to be the recommendation.
Now Orthopedic Docs, say softer is better....Less pressure
Now she has pressure points from her neck to her feet.
No matter what the position she is trying to settle into.
She tosses and turns all night long. As the birthdays are
passing..it is showing on Gma. Not just her face but her
energy level for her day. Fatigue is a Big Problem.
The question is to buy or not buy a new medium pillow
top...See if, it Helps her????? The one we have would
move to the guest bedroom. It is a much better bed, than
the current bed in there. Gpa is stumped! He couldn't
believe Gma has slept so well, this past 10 days.
Except for the 1st. night....This was ME! Wiggling out of
that stretchy mesh and playing Houdini in the covers.
Gma said, if it isn't the bed....It is Gpa's snoring
concerts that have become chronic in the past decade.
Some nights,she can pretend they are concerts..HeHe!
Other nights,she can't get to sleep. Most nights, she
reads until, she can't hold her eyes open! She says,
she hurts so BAD when she crawls into bed and lays
down. She even told us, if she didn't have too...she
wouldn't sleep at all!
Precious and I know, we will be Happy no matter what
we have in there. If not, we will run over to the other
bedroom and bunk there. Gpa can sleep Anywhere! A chair,
couch,anything he can find.....He has good, bad and so-so
nights...Says, it's not the bed but his age! Other people
tell her, you just don't sleep well..when you get old!
Great! Since sleep has been an issue since age 20...
Our Big question is buy or not buy? What do our pals
sleep on????????? Gma was looking online at other beds.
Such as memory foam....People we ask,either Love or
Hate them! Doesn't seem to be alot of in between???
They are so very expensive! A good pillow-top is a
good size investment but not 4-5 of her yearling Steers!
Gma has King size headaches just looking online at options.
Wanted to know what is out there before she considers
dragging herself from store to store......
OPINIONS and SUGGESTIONS and INFORMATION WELCOMED......
I think, Gpa is hoping it is the BED and NOT HIM??????
This little doxie Do NOT Snore at all!
hugs and kisses,Mazy

I know my pals have been following my recovery from surgery.
I'm here MYSELF to report with my own PAWS! Can you believe it?
1st. I must ask that our pals say a prayer for Precious. A
couple nights ago,Gpa went to put her in the sunroom for the
night. She jumped out of his arms! He was on the landing.
It was a HUGE JUMP and she landed hard! She started with
limping and Gma thought it was her hip??? Last couple days,
she has chosen odd places to lay. Gma noticed,she seems to
be having trouble getting up and down. Finding a comfortable
spot to lay. Is it her back? A strain? A pinched nerve?
A herniated disc?
She isn't eating like she normally does. She has a HUGE
appetite. She is just picking a little. She is drinking.
She is going potty in her box but not the normal amount.
She is letting Gma pick her up so she doesn't jump off
loveseat. While she is a senior,she naps alot,she just
isn't herself. No crying but appears like there is some
Gpa was going to town,Gma sent him to the Vet for
some pain medicine for a kitty. They can't take what
they give pups. Gma told Gpa, if she wasn't perked up
by Monday. Gma would take her to the Vet. The Fur Doc,
told Gpa...he really didn't know what to do for her?
Basically they are Livestock Docs and not specialized
Well, we know they don't have the pricey equipment
that the small animal Vets have. Angel Foxie had to
go to a specialist all the time. Gma said, well we
have 2 places where she has been, many times. They are
both 60 miles away. If we can find out, what exactly
is wrong, we can probably fix it. ????
I Feel BAD for her...She did tease me, while I was not
feeling so good,but I forgive her. I think, maybe there
is something to this TOO much JUMPING business????? If
you could just say a prayer for her, I'd be really very
As Grandma's Dad, he is finally home. He is stable,
not so weak now, some issues have been handled. He's
been home 2 days now. So far, doing better. We are
praying things are back on the right track for him.
Little ME.... I'm NO LONGER locked in the kitchen.
Gma took the laundry baskets off the loveseat today.
I'm jumping into the chairs. Using my bedroom Pet
stairs on the big loveseat. The smaller one, she
will let me jump on. I've stayed on Gma's heels
almost all day! (Just because I could!) Gma and I
are still sleeping in the kitchen. She doesn't want
me to wakeup during the night,not use the pet stairs
and jump off her extra high pillow-top to go potty.
She says, I'd be on the floor before either of them
knew that I was going to do it!
I'm playing,still taking the Rimadyl so I won't scratch.
I'm being very a good girl! I'm not playing as
rough at I usually do....Their Idea not mine!
Pawsome to go from a little living room playtime to
most of my Freedom restored...NO CAVE! It's all sealed
up...Whole different story for another time....

I discovered a couple days ago, I am very flexible!
I'm smart, creative,inventive with my efforts to improve
I literally, stood on my head in my plush Christmas bed.
So I could twist, stretch my extra long, fast tongue...
Try to lick my stitches...If,I could JUST STRETCH A
LITTLE FARTHER, I'D HAVE BEEN IN LIKE FLINT! So close!
I could touch the shaved part....
Gma laughed until she had tears! Then she gave me the
finger and said, no-no! I STOPPED but she laughed at
my efforts! How could she do that? Later the same day,
I tried a new approach. I put my head under my front
paw and went that route....Again with nawh-nawh's and
no-no's! Reporting to Gpa, "he said, it was very Smart
on my part!" Gma said,"she exercises with me,however,
I'm not that flexible!" There are very few of her moves
we would call Yoga! She says,"I'm a YOGA EXPERT and I
could teach hoomans a thing or too!"
Later, she had to run to town. Rimadyl for the itchies
and the store. She had the Fur Docs and Techs in stitches
telling them about my tricks! (They laughed at me too!)
I know I can be Funny, but I wasn't trying for Funny!
I was trying for Comfort! They thought is was pretty
funny....Gma and I are sleeping in the kitchen. Actually,
they probably think Gma is a little crazy????
Late yesterday, I had the Blues,Big Time...I was mopey,
restless....Wandered back and forth between Angel Baby's
big pillow bed and my bed...I haven't slacked off on
folding my potty pad into a square with my snout! If,Gma
isn't right there to fix it,as soon as I'm done! How's
that for being particular and extra clean?
After supper, Gma took her 6 clothes hampers and put
them on all the furniture in the living room. She
closed off all the other rooms. Dug in new toy stash,
gave me a rainbow colored Reindeer with 8 squeakers.
All flat between the head and feet. It took me 2 hrs.
but I wiped out 7 of the squeakers and made a couple
holes. (Now in the stuffie hospital) She said,"good
entertainment for $3..you know,after holiday sales."
SHE LET ME OUT OF THE KITCHEN...YIPPY,FREEDOM! My
eyes lite up and sparkled. I wiggled my butt,pranced,
wagged my sassy little tail....I ran around the furniture
dragging the toy. Having a blast! After the HOLES, it
disappeared to the pantry... I RAN TO THE PANTRY many
times during the whole evening....I'd yodel,try to get
get Gpa or Gma to get the silly thing for me. Nope,
didn't happen! Finally I gave up and played with all
my other new stuff....
Gpa,laughed at me, running back and forth to the pantry.
Begging for my toy... He says,"I'm a determined little
gal! Pretty darn smart!" Gma says,"sometimes, too Big
for my britches!" I didn't snore, but I didn't get up
at all last night....I slept all night!
Thanks pals for all the prayers,p-mails,greetings,cards,
and pressies. I have Gma taking care of thank you's...
She's a little stretched right now, but will contact
each of you for me. She's trying to do a few each day,
while I try to take an after lunch nap.
HUGS AND KISSES FROM
IMPRISONED ON THE PRAIRIE,MAZY
BTW-ANYONE SEE ROMEO BEAU,TELL HIM TO COME HELP
CHEW UP MY WOODEN GRATE! END THIS INCARCERATION....
HE LOVES PAPER OF ALL KINDS. MADE FROM TREES.
MY WOODEN GATE IS MADE FROM TREES. I HAVEN'T
CHEWED ON IT NOW...IN THE PAST I'VE CHEWED SEVERAL
SQUARES APART. I DON'T LIKE BEING LEFT OUT
OF ANYTHING....Is that what they call a Velcro PUP?
If it is...THEN I AM ONE!

Reporting appetite A+ and potty functions A+.
BEHAVIOR for ME is a A+A+A++++++++ I can be an
Angel when I want to be!
Last night,Gpa thought he'd let me in the living
room to play with me. Gma was on the phone with
reports on her Dad. He is still in the hospital.
This idea came to Gpa cuz, we were playing,ever
so gently in the kitchen. After being in the
cold all day...Gpa's body couldn't take the hard
vinyl floor he was laying on.
SSSSooooo into the living room we go! Gma's eyes
pop wide open and a frown on her face! Yep! It took
a split second to see there were no hampers
blocking the couch! I was making a beeline for it!
I could FEEL A JUMP rising up in me! Gpa managed to
turn my butt and herd me,like a COW,back to the
kitchen! How dare he? A COW! I'm NOT CATTLE!
He says,YOU had your chance....YOU BLEW IT! Gma,
thinking why TEMPT HER! WHO ME,WHAT DID I DO????
I was only heading towards a favorite place! I
hadn't done anything,yet!
NOW I WAS CONFUSED and I POUTED in my BED! Gma
made supper and I forgave him after the turkey
with chicken broth on my kibbles. (Turkey gone,
now VENISON Steak is on my menu.) I haven't
been picked up since Gma carried me in the house.
The stitches are where their hands should go to
carry me as a doxie should be.
Gma was on the phone a long time with 2nd report
on Great-Gpa. Gpa washed the dishes and Gma
cleaned up. They made the bed for ME. Gma decided
to try and read awhile before we called it a day.
She piled pillows against the fridge and used it
like a recliner. We had a long day 6 a.m. to 12 a.m.
We crawl into bed,snuggle into the flannel, Gma
jumps up,light on, bedding is WET! I DIDN'T DO
ANYTHING! Gma didn't have anything to drink in bed.
Precious was MAD she couldn't sleep on the Royal
Bed and .....You KNOW WHAT SHE DID, A NAUGHTY!
We had to change my bed and we settle in again.
Gma dozing off....I BLEW OUT OF THE COVERS, RAN
TO THE KITCHEN DOOR AND BARKED FEROCIOUSLY. Gma
didn't hear a thing. She thought maybe, I heard
the BULLS YELLING AT EACH OTHER? Maybe a MOUSE
RAN ACROSS THE SNOW DRIFTED PATIO?
Back to bed,soft music in the background. The ICE
MAKER dumps itself and I STIR...Maybe, the water
to fridge,ice maker or furnace kicking on....Started
Round 1? We are sleeping above the furnace room...
ACTUALLY BEING THE STINKER I AM....I HADN'T BARKED
SINCE LAST THURSDAY! I WASN'T SURE I COULD??? IT
WAS A TEST....THIS IS NOT AN EMERGENCY! JUST TESTING
THE SYSTEM! To call Gma back to the kitchen, I use a
sing song doxie yodel with a touch of poor me whine
thrown in there.....
Gma still sleeping better than in her own bed. I
think she is going bed shopping after I'm all well?
She is very stiff from her fall yesterday. The foot
feels good with an ace on it. The hip is real sore
too. She loaded the washer and add soap. She used
the Poo word! It flew out of her hand,splashed all
over the washer,her PJ's,hair and face. Darn Ritis
Boyzs are at it again! Things smoothed out after that.
I went back finished my breakfast and settled for
resting on Angel Baby's large pillow bed. I did manage
a peek into the Sunroom yesterday. I was herded out...
Gma saw JUMPING DT'S in my PEEPERS.
Precious is TEASING ME...Going in/out of the kitchen,
living room,sunroom,etc.... Also sitting at the gate
rubbing my IMPRISONMENT into my SNOUT! How DARE SHE!
When she had her butt abscess/surgery...I FAITHFULLY,
laid,watched and worried over her! What kind of a
fur-sis is this????????? I'd rather have a doggie
fur-sis....CATS can be real Pains!

Woke up at 5 a.m.,you do that, when you go to bed
before the chickens! Gma and I are night owls! We had
a good night. We both slept well. We were up only 1x
to potty. I snuggled real close to Gma in the flannel
sheets. Outside was a raging blizzard and couldn't see
50 feet. This morning the storm had moved off,leaving
sunshine,but high was 5. Windchill factor-35. Gpa
worked on his tractor all afternoon with just a space
heater. BTW,I slept Pawtastically, because I didn't have
that corset,squeezy mesh thingy on me!
Gma cooked beasty for the barn kitties,because it is
so cold. The can food is cold and kibbles are dry.
Kept kitchen toasty and teasing my snout! I had
chicken broth,chopped turkey and my kibbles for lunch.
I had some yellow cake yesterday and oatmeal cookie
today for snack. My appetite has returned to normal.
I have NO bandage right now. I can't reach the stitches
with my tongue to lick it. They don't itch yet,so I'm
not trying to scratch with my back paw. (My t-shirts
will come out, if I start trying to reach the boo-boo)
The Fur Doc put in lots of very small stitches cuz,I'm
a very energetic doxie....Wait till they report the
mesh wasn't that clever of them! I know, they will be
surprised! I think it will be summer before I have
hair on my chest again????I didn't have that much to
I haven't had opportunity to jump,so I haven't. Last
night, Gma put laundry baskets on the loveseat, so I
couldn't get up there. Gpa laid on the floor to play
with me. He played like an OLD GEEZER! NO ZOOMIES OR
Today, Gma and I played ring around the dining room
chairs. I carried a stuffie and she followed,pretending
to take the stuffie. What's her problem? She wouldn't
pull on it,either? Then we took a box and put all my
new smaller stuffies in.....My job was to take them out!
Then I put some in and she took them out....This was
so boring! I went and took a NAP!
Gma wanted us to be TWINS so she managed to give herself
3 Boo-Boo's today. A steamy burn on her finger, a cut
thumb and then the big one! She totally washed everything
in the master bedroom. Since laundry room is real close to
MY PRISON! While cleaning the mattress,she fell on the
end of the bed frame....She said, it was stupid!WELL STUPID,
has a little cut,a BIG BRUISE and THE FOOT SWELLED UP. She put
an ace bandage on it. TOP of her foot AND she can't put a
shoe on...Good thing, she can't go anywhere,anyway!She's
at my beck and call 24/7. Must stay close to phone for
reports on her DAD.
I wanted to kiss the owchie, but she wrapped it up instead.
She is limping when she walks. Now she really is walking like
an OLD GREEZERETTE...Isn't that what they call real old,funny
prairie persons who camp in their kitchen in January?????
Thank you pals for all the p-mails,messages,rosies,
electronic get well messages. Especially, all the very
good advice. You know Gma worries cuz, I'm just Everything
to Her.... I'm with her at least 95% of the time....
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy

January camping in our kitchen!My Gma and Gpa are weird!
The neighbors would have them committed! I always sleep with
them in the Big bed.....
When supper dishes were over...Gpa said,"where did they do
the surgery?" Gma said"on her chest." Gpa,"The bandage is
down by her lower belly." So they flipped me over to see...
Yep, the bandage is down to my belly! Gma,"call the Vet!"
Gpa,"she's laid in her bed all afternoon. Sat on heat vent
a couple times. No romping! The bandage isn't where it
is suppose to be...Now what do we do?" Gma was worried this
mesh would stick on the drainage of the incision.
Fur Doc,"roll it all up,put bandage back and stretch the
mesh back into place." Mazy said,"easier said than done.
It hurts! don't touch it! Gurrrrrrrrrrrr!" Gma said,"she
is going to snap! We will have to muzzle her." Farm
handkerchief didn't make a good muzzle! Gpa's arthritic
hand could hold her snout shut,while Gma carefully
worked to roll the mesh up. Redo everything,put back
into place. Then Gma took safety pins and pinned more
tightly on the back side of the neck. (Problem fixed)
Gma says,"I'm exhausted! I need to go to bed!" Not even
8 p.m. Gma says," she is going to cry or chew the gate."
Gpa,"why can't we put her in the bed?" Gma,"we aren't
fast enough if she decides to go potty in the night
to stop her if she doesn't use the pet stairs and jumps!
We have a storm moving in. She can tear the stitches out.
I'm not willing to take the chance." Told no jumping
or climbing for a week.
Now they brain storm....Gma says," get the inflatable
queen size mattress from upstairs and the pump." They
pump it up,flannel sheets and a big comforter. The bed
just fit width of the kitchen.
I was antsy but not crying. I got on the bed but gave
Gma the pouties and cold shoulder. Music on, Gma fell
asleep and slept good until 1:30. Mazy made it to her
potty pad...OMD! It was total mush! Had to be removed.
The smell was awful! Plus spray the kitchen down......
2 something, we are up! Our little mazy is now a Houdini!
Houdini has the mesh rolled all the way down to her rear
flanks. Stitches are at the other end! How did she do that?
She settles again,doze off!
3:30 up again! Yippy, kidneys are working! 20 hrs. but
finally peed. It was huge! Gma cleans that up.She decides
to remove mesh that's binding her hind legs. Carefully,
Gma stretches this big rolled mess and she steps out of it.
Now we both settle in and sleep until 8 a.m. Now the
Princess curls up happily by Gma. The stitches look good.
All the bedding was put in the living room. Think Gma
will be sleeping in the kitchen for a few days. Gma
doesn't sleep well anyway. She didn't sleep any worse
on the mattress than in her bed. 1st. stretch was better!
Mazy has eaten and went another 9 hrs. before she peed
today. Have given her pain med 1x. It is good for 12 hrs.
Today,Little Houdini has some sparkle in her eyes....
We are thanking God for all the blessings. Thanking
all our pals for all the prayers......... Thank you
for the POPS and pmails. We so appreciate your support.
Great-Gma didn't call last night. We are assuming
Great-Gpa is still in the hospital. If we don't have
a new report tonight. We will call her. Great-Gma is
trying to catch some extra sleep too.
The storm is rolling in. Schools were let out early.
It started snowing this morning. Temperatures are still
falling. Suppose to be a stormy weekend. We managed a
leaky faucet,laundry,making a big pot of vegetable beef
barley soup and a cake. Made fresh bread yesterday.
Gma pushed through her physical therapy. Drying the
Our Houdini is calling her maid/nurse with her doxie
yodeling song. She has been pretty quiet today. Has drug
a few toys around the kitchen. She does have her special
sparkle in her eyes that was absent yesterday. Precious
is being a pain in the butt! Making sure Mazy knows
she can goes wherever she wants until she irritates Gma!
