I met another one of my family ancestors today. This was a basset hound named Bonnie. Once again, she was really Uncle Jeff's dog, but she was family, too. Bonnie was born with a deformed foot. She only had two toes on her front paw. It was perfect for holding a pen. So Mom taught Bonie how to write her name. She could make a B. I guess that means she could sign legal documents when she was alive. Bonnie was also the first dog of my mom's family that my dad met. They did not get off to the greatest start. Dad was sitting in a chair in Maw-maw's living room and Bonnie kept barking at him. Wouldn't stop. Dad didn't understand why, he was nice to this dog. Of course I bet all you dogster pups know why-Dad was sitting on Bonnie's chair. BOL!
Some of my dogster pals have asked that I keep up this diary until I find the perfect pup to send to mom and dad. They want to know what is going on in mom and dad's life and how everything is. I guess I could give you some updates.
It's birthday week. Jake is turning 18! He wants to do something bad but legal. He wants to buy lottery tickets and cigarettes. Of course everyone would kill him if he actually smoked. He just wants to do it because he wants to be bad. Mom told him if he is doing something to be bad, he really shouldn't broadcast it. This kid doesn't know how to get in trouble.
Little is also having a birthday party this week. He will be four. He is having a big party at PopUps of Fun! He wants a new scooter. He always puts his old scooter in the middle of the driveway in the hopes that someone will run over it. Mom thinks he will be disappointed when he finds out that the transformer scooter doesn't actually turn into a robot.
L and Big have both been into their school work. L wants to make straight A's this year. He keeps asking mom for help with science. Mom went to school back in the olden days when girls didn't need to trouble their heads with hard things like science and math. So he is pretty much on his own.
Big is in kindergarten and has totally blown his teachers away. Seems he is a super reader! He reads at a 4th grade level. Mom thinks its all the video games he plays. They are giving him extra reading time, because he still needs to be in kindergarten. Mom is so proud.
Mom and dad are both doing ok. Dad is still having his sinus problems. Oh! they got a surprise visitor. Their old college friend got a flat tire while driving home from Kentucky. Fortunately, she wasn't too far away from our house. So It was mom and dad to the rescue. Who knew they could change a tire!

Hi Dot! So good to read an update on the humans. Mom's niece Ashley turned 18 this summer. She wanted to buy lotto tickets too, so at midnight on her birthday, she and mom went to the gas station to buy them. She picked them out and the guy at the counter didn't even card her or ask her age. BOL! It was a real letdown. Mom told her after that she shoulda bought cigarettes just so they had to ID her. :)
See ya around the pond!
Jake and Ashley have it wrong. Instead of turning 18 and buying lottery tickets, they need to cash in winning lottery tickets! Silly teenagers.
