Re: Daily Check in May 23, 2019

So glad everyone got through the storms okay. Poor little Teddi , Janet. But he probably felt safer under the sofa. My crazy boss moved his retirement up by six months, so he will be gone after next week, thank heavens. He was busy packing up his office today. I had a peaceful day today at work. The...

Happy Mothers Day to all the moms of kids, fluffy or not. It's been raining on and off this weekend here in Tennessee. The landscape is drenched, chilly, and so green. Littlest Dachshund mutt, the one who is half Spitz and looks like a golden fox, is curled up next to me while I sip coffee. I plan t...
