Peaceful protest [Jul. 4th, 2018|07:13 am]

I attended a peaceful rally in Detroit to show our distain for the Trump administration’s policy on immigration. The practice of separating children from anguished parents is horrific and racist.I’ve had unrelenting anxiety since Trump took office. The administration is unabashedly racist & panders to White extremists -

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s super Joe! [May. 6th, 2018|05:38 pm]

My Dad had been complaining of exhaustion so I was able to get him to see my primary physician. My folks used to see a Dr whose office visits involved a wait of 3 or more hours in the waiting room ~ making them reluctant to go

She had him start a water pill for swollen feet and had him see a cardiologist

After a battery of tests, the Dr said he could use a pacemaker. His heart stopped over 200 times during a 24 hour monitor.

I was a bit nervous, my Dad is 90 He stayed overnight and was back home.

So far he is doing great. He’s hoping for more energy for his paintings

Bite the hand that feeds you [Mar. 16th, 2018|10:06 am]

On March 6th I was busy cooking dinner when I heard Buddy & Daenyrs fighting. I panicked because Buddy was recovering from his spinal injury -so I tried to pull Daenyrs off of Buddy I was not having any success & I got bit. Leigh was able to get them apart as I ran to the sink to wash my hand I was able to stop the bleeding The dogs were totally fine.  Buddy seemed pleased with himself as he bit Daenyrs on the neck (Leigh had to pry him off)

I had to go to Chez Beau (hospital) to get stitches in my thumb.  I lied about the injury because dog bites ,despite it being unintentional, requires a report to Animal control. I didn’t want that hassle

I took advice from my friend Diane & the following day when the doggies started to squabble, I just pulled Daenyrs' tail  - & that worked great - no bites

Happy 65th Anniversary mom and dad [Jan. 17th, 2018|06:29 pm]

Nice pizza party at my folks house for their 65th Anniversary. This morning my mother called out to my Dad "Hi Joe ". Because of her dementia, this is a rare thing

Picture from their honeymoon in the Poconos. It seems nobody took any pictures on their wedding day

Real estate [Jan. 14th, 2018|08:02 am]

Leigh & I bought 3 acres of property in Milford with the intention of building a geodesic dome that Leigh designed. Well, those plans never materialized (The city wouldn't approve his dome ) so we've just been paying taxes on it for decades. I reached out to my cousin's daughter who lives in Milford if she knew any realtors & she said her father in law is a realtor. Within 2 weeks the property was sold with 10,000 over the asking price! We finalized the deal on Thursday.

Daenyrs is always harassing Buddy for rough and tumble play- but they have their sweet moments.

Welcome Daenerys [Jan. 6th, 2018|09:45 am]

Our latest edition to our ever changing canine family. Her lovely owner can't keep her and was tearful...but we've encouraged her to come visit very often and hopefully today

She's all puppy- at first I was afraid that she and buddy would fight over a chew toy.. and she hopped on our bed and started to pee on the comforter. . But so far so good

Doggie meetup [Jan. 4th, 2018|02:20 pm]

Yesterday's meet up with Daenarys went well. Beautiful dog, which was listed as German shepherd- but definitely looks part Husky. Owner named her after Game of thrones character because of resemblance to DireWolf. Owner is going through a separation and won't be able to keep her :( She liked the fact that we had a dog

It's been crazy cold but I took Buddy for a morning walk after a week of not going due to cold
