Good morning. Hmmm, I guess Pogo isn't very hungry this morning. He just turned his little nose up at scrambled eggs. Granted, there was no bacon on the plate. Has no one ever told him that there are starving doggies in Ethiopia? My mother always used to remind us kids of this predicament whenever we would not eat our food. We would wrap up the offending food in a napkin and donate it to behind the trash can. I'll have to keep checking behind our trash barrel. This is one very smart doggie!
I do have good news to share this morning. Yesterday afternoon, while Pogo and I were napping, the landscape goblins stopped by and decorated the entrance to my yard. Gollee! What a surprise I got when Pogo and I went out into the yard. Gosh, it was just so pretty!
Seeing as how I was dressed in a long fuzzy bathrobe, I did not want to go out into the street to get front view photos. So, I took these photos from inside the yard. It shouldn't be so hard to find my yard now in the dark. Have a lookee. The hanging plants are on either side of the entrance.
Of course, I have a pretty good idea who the landscape gremlins really are. They probably look a lot like my daughter and son in law, Deanne and Eddie. I would bet my paycheck on that!! After a phone call, I knew I was right. Thank you so much, Dee Dee and Eddie. I love you guys!
After this lovely surprise, I sat at my laptop and wrote the article about life with my Pogo for the shelter. I generously sprinkled photos throughout the article, and I think it came out okay. If they accept it, I'll post it here after it appears in their newsletter. (Beginning of November) I also made a new Halloween card for this year. Phew!! Talk about renewed energy!!
Today, I want to get a couple of things done around here. I got a phone call last evening from a co-worker asking me to work for her tonight. Of course I said "okay" and now I will have next Saturday night off. Pretty good trade!
Now it's time for me to get dressed and start my day. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
