Rambling

Rambling!

For more than two weeks now, we have been putting up with one elevator  to move us  up and down as we need to travel up and down, or meals andw activities.  It has become more annoying as each day goes by.

I probably told  you that we had a new, five Star chef,,,,boy, is she good. Last night at supper was a ‘topper’ as far as I’m concerned.

Souvlaki, Tzatziki  (spelling?) and a Greek Salad…with her home made ice cream, which was served in either a bowl or a cone! Talk about delicious! Things are looking up around here!

My niece and her husbands’ black Lab became ill on the weekend, and had to be put down.    Reading her blog about Tynan brought back memories from our little ‘Skippy’. His legs were so short he had to skip to get up the curb. He was a ‘Heintz 57 breed’……you know, a mixture!1978:00:00 Our dog, Skippy.JPG

Shortly after we put a new carpet in the front room, my husband ended up with a broken leg. He was lying on the chesterfield… and called Skippy to come to him. Now Skippy knew that he was not allowed on that new carpet. He also knew he had to ‘come’ when he was called.  What                                was he to do?

You could almost see the wheels turning in his head!

There was an easy chair between the couch and the hall. So, Skippy jumped up on that chair and walked across it and right over to the couch…and  on up to the other end and gave my husband a big LICK. He did not touch the carpet!

  1. The elevator is down again? Good grief – I hope they are faster putting things in order than the last time. Great news about the new chef, Norma! That’s quite a long journey from the bare hotdog days. 🙂
    Loved the story about Skippy! Lots of cocker spaniel to be seen. Clever dog! 🙂
